Cutie Honey

Cutie Honey (ã?­ã?¥ã?¼ã??ã?£ã?¼ã?ã??ã?¼,KyÅ«tÄ« HanÄ«?) (also spelled Cutey Honey) is a Japanese media franchise created by Go Nagai. Cutie Honey first appears on volume 41 of the 1973 edition of Shōnen Champion. The titular character of Honey is considered the prototype for the transforming magical girl. Nagai's inspiration for the character of Honey comes from two classic tokusatsu superhero shows, 7-Color Mask (1959) and Rainbowman (1972). Both, creations of Yasunori Kawauchi, featured superheroes with seven different forms. Honey is notable for being mischievous for a Japanese female hero, often teasing her male friends and mocking her enemies in combat. When transforming into Cutie Honey, she gives a brief rundown of the forms she has previously taken in that particular episode, and then declares, "But my true identity is..." before yelling "HONEY FLASH!" and transforming. The franchise spans two animated TV series, two OVA series, numerous manga series, a drama CD, and one live action adaptation. ...This information was automatically generated from Freebase article Cutie Honey.
