News Cutie Honey Remade for Live-Action Television
posted on 2007-08-02 07:20 EDT
The first live-action television series based on Go Nagai's Cutie Honey manga will premiere on TV Tokyo on October 2 at 1:00 a.m. 20-year-old Mikie Hara will star as Cutie Honey, one of the first transforming "magical girl" characters from manga and anime.
Makoto Yokoyama, a veteran action choreographer of various Ranger and Masked Rider works, will direct Cutie Honey The Live. Yutaka Izubuchi (Masked Rider Agito, Record of Lodoss War) will design the characters. This series will commemorate Nagai's 40th year as a manga creator. Hideaki Anno directed the earlier 2004 live-action film; two television series, one movie, and several videos have been animated by other teams.

If this film causes more permanent damage than most Pokémon outings, that's wholly the fault of its main character, Keldeo.
On the whole, The Battle for Doldrey is a mixed bag of strengths and weaknesses. While that may be true of most things, there are few places where those lines are so clearly drawn as in this film.
It is difficult to really discuss the direction Yoo takes with his alternate retelling of the murders that terrorized London in 1888 without giving too much away, but if you enjoy a dark horror tale with plenty of blood and terror, this is the book for you.
