<SIGH>

It's just not Cutie Honey without a version of the original theme song!

The teaser BGM to me was "meh."
They could have teased us with bars from the original theme song or a remix like the 1990s and 2000s OVAs had. Those were great remixes of the 1973 version.
It would have impressed me a lot more to hear a new recording of the theme.

At least the Honey character designs look decent if not outstanding but there's only so many times you can redevelop a character before it stops looking like the source material...

I wonder if this will have a remix of the OP https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCX77Je16fk, like the last 3 instalments had. It looks good, I hope one of these days Trigger does a version of Cutie Honey, or the studio who did Dororon Enma-Kun, that was really well done in the style of Nagai.

Out of all the upcoming versions of Nagai works, this is the one I'm most excited for.

I do agree a remix of the original theme would have been nice, but I still like the music they used anyway. And everything else is looking great!

Meeramera? That was Brain's Base and I agree, it was also a very entertaining show and much better than their Kikoushi Enma adaptation.

As for Trigger, weren't some of those guys involved with Re: Cutie Honey under Gainax?

Dude,chill,Jesus. Every iteration of cutie honey has had the theme song. And this is gonna be no different. The POV just didn’t have it.

This trailer definitely had the right feel. With the right creative team, this could really work.

"Honey, FLASH!"

I know Gainax made Re, I thought Anno was the guy behind it though, not the Trigger guys. Oh it was brain base was it, I don't why but I thought it was a studio called Red Hat Maker, maybe another of Nagais works was made by a studio called that.

^Anno was the chief director for Re: but every episode had its own director free to add their own style to it. Imaishi directed the first episode and Iirc other future Trigger team members were involved with the other 2 eps.
