Yeah, the "New Cutey Honey" OVA series, though.
We've never gotten the original series or the "Re: Cutie Honey" series that came along with that movie.
Well, Guess What?!
North American video distributor Discotek Media announced on Saturday that it will release the original 1973-74 Cutey Honey television series in a 25-episode box set next year.
The television series was the first anime adaptation of Go Nagai's classic manga of the same name. It centers around Honey Kisaragi, a girl who is actually an android equipped with a device that can create any object she wishes. An evil organization named Panther Claw wants to steal the device, but Honey uses the device to transform into the super heroine Cutey Honey to fight Panther Claw.
But wait, that's not all!
North American video distributor Discotek Media announced on Saturday that it will release the 92 episodes of the original 1972-74 Mazinger Z television anime series. Discotek is aiming to release the first box set at the end of 2013.
The anime was the first adaptation of Go Nagai's 1972 super robot manga of the same name. The story follows high school boy Kōji Kabuto in his super robot Mazinger Z as he battles Dr. Hell, a mad scientist bent on world domination.
And heck, they still have this waiting in the wings!
If TMS and Toei want to keep giving them shows, I'll keep giving D-tek my business!
