Go Nagai Draws CD Art for Cutie Honey Universe Opening Song
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Manga legend and Cutie Honey creator Go Nagai is providing the CD jacket art for idol group AOP's new single "Ai ga Nakucha Tatakaenai." The song serves as the opening theme for Cutie Honey Universe, one of three recent anime (including Devilman crybaby and Mazinger Z: Infinity) celebrating Nagai's 50th anniversary as a creator.
The CD has a reversible cover, so customers can either enjoy the artwork by Nagai or a group shot of AOP in the same costume as the character.
Cutie Honey Universe follows Honey Kisaragi, an amazingly humanlike and fashion conscious android with the unique ability to transform her body into a wide range of outrageous yet stylish disguises, each of which comes with its own dazzling super ability. After a run-in with a sinister secret criminal cabal organization, Panther Claw, the luscious and law-abiding Honey makes it her mission to bring them down.
Nagai originally published the Cutie Honey story in 1973 and it inspired multiple manga remakes, anime adaptations on television and home video, a live-action film, and a live-action television series. Seven Seas Entertainment will release the manga in a hardcover omnibus as Cutie Honey: The Classic Collection.
