Another kickass anime from GAINAX...
Régis and I started watching Re: Cutie Honey a couple weeks ago, but then Tom Lai came over with a pair of hard drives (one for him and one for me) and I spent most of the night loading up Tom's drive with Asian movies, so I missed a lot of the show.
What little I saw that night, though, begged for a second, more focused, viewing so I sat down today and watched all three of the episodes. This latest update of the classic anime mirrors the live-action Cutie Honey directed by Hideaki Anno, who also oversaw this OVA, but since it's animated, Anno and his team of directors (Hiroyuki Imaishi, Takamichi Ito, and Masayuki) were able to do all the things they couldn't do to their live action actresses, like strip them naked and fling them around.
Re: Cutie Honey is fast-paced action and mad-cap T&A, and it makes up for all the things the live-action film was missing... boobies, boobies, BOOBIES.
Oh alright, I'll admit it... the OVA is not entirely about the jiggly wiggly... it also spends a bit more time on character development than the nippleless live-action movie.
