Go Nagai's Cutie Honey manga will get a new anime titled Cutie Honey Universe in 2018. Akitoshi Yokoyama (Photo Kano) is directing the anime at Production Reed. Natsuko Takahashi (Urahara, Yuyushiki) is handling series composition and Syūichi Iseki is designing the characters and serving as chief animation director.
The teaser visual shows Honey in various costumes.
The anime project, like the Devilman crybaby Netflix series and Mazinger Z Infinity film, commemorates the 50th anniversary of Nagai's works.
To commemorate the anime adaptation, Exit Tunes will sell a special hug pillow (pictured below) at its Comic Market 93 booth from December 29-31.
The classic 1973 manga follows Cutie Honey, an android created by Professor Kisaragi. When he is murdered by an organization seeking the device within her, she seeks revenge.
Nagai's manga has inspired multiple manga remakes, anime adaptations on television and home video, a live-action film, and a live-action television series. Seven Seas Entertainment has licensed the original manga and the Cutie Honey aGoGo! manga, written by Shinpei Ito with collaboration from Hideaki Anno.
