A android girl who fights crime and to avenge the death of her father with the powers she gains from the Cutie System. She calls herself the warrior of love and she`s the first magical girl.
Honey Kisaragi/Cutie Honey is created by Go Nagai. She first appeared in Volume 41 of the 1973 Shonen Champion and is considered the first female protagonist to be in a Shonen Manga series. Go Nagai's inspiration for Cutie Honey came from classic shows where a character took on different appearances such as Bannai Tarao (a detective who could take on seven different faces) and Rainbowman (a tokusatsu hero who transformed into seven different forms).
Honey Kisaragi was the android daughter of Dr. Koshiro Kisaragi. He built her so that she could fight the criminal orginization Panther Claw, but keep this hidden from her until the time came. He also placed a device called the "Airborne Element Solidifier" inside of her. It has the ability to create matter out of air and various types of substances. This is how Honey is able to change her clothing and obtain her weapons. He sent her to a all female catholic school hidden in the mountains so Panther Claw wouldn't know about her. While there she became friends with Natsuko Aki and learned about all of the schools strange teachers. After her first night there she heard her father calling for her.
As she ran out of her dorm she found a motorcycle but didn't know how to use it until her father told her to touch her heart choker and say "Honey Flash". In a instant her clothing disappeared in a flash and Honey was wearing a Biker Suit and heard her father tell her she is Hurricane Honey and she now has the knowledge to drive a vast amount of vehicles. As she drove the motorcycle her father told her to hurry and that Panther Claw is coming after him. As she reached her home she saw a large explosion and her father told her to use her fighting spirit to change. In a hurry she preformed another Honey Flash and turned into Cutie Honey. As she finished her transformation her father revealed to her she was an android and that Panther Claw is in the basement and to kill them. As she entered the basement Honey encountered the members of Panther Claw who just discovered what she is. As the Panther Claw goons attacked Honey was able to kill most of them except for their leader Black Claw. Honey was able to kill Black Claw by making her stab herself with her claw, but she did give Honey a warning saying her companions will kill her. In an instant her opponent turned to dust.
Honey then went searching for her father but was too late as he died in the hands of Seiji Hayami. But she still heard her father talking to her who wished to tell her the secret about her. As she came to his lab she encountered a android copy of her father, who was built to tell her everything in case he died. As she learned about what is in her body and Panther Claw. Her father also told her body is no different than a human and that she is able to bleed and feel pain after being cut, and shed tears. He could have made her invulnerable but wanted her to be an android with human emotions, because to have a human heart means to have a human body. As she heard this begun to cry and told her father thank you. Her father then told her some final words saying to protect her body from evil. He then told her he will self destruct along with their home so that Panther Claw or anybody else won't use his research for evil.
As she was leaving she saw Seiji Hayami who just listened to everything her father told her. Seiji told her he was a reporter and that he was interviewing her father before Panther Claw attacked. Honey thought Seiji was going to reveal her secrets and was going to leave him in the house so he will die in the explosion but decides to leave him be after promising not to write about her. Honey and Seiji then hurried out of the house as it exploded. As she watched her home go up in flames Honey vowed to destroy Panther Claw and send them to hell. Honey then returned back to her dorm and apologized to Natsuko for leaving late at night and being attacked by Miharu. As she went to class Honey's teacher Alphonne brought her a paper showing what happened to her home. As she was trying not to cry she saw Seiji was injured while escaping from the explosion and was hospitalized. Honey then decided to visit him after school just in cause Panther Claw tries to get answers out of him. As she reached the hospital she turned into a nurse and entered the building. Just then a truck pulled up to the hospital full of Panther Claw members going after Seiji. Honey then entered Seiji's room and met his dad Danbei Hayami and his little brother Junpei Hayami. As she left Panther Claws goons attacked the officers guarding Seiji room and attacked his family. The goons then grabbed Seiji and jumped out the window with him. Honey then saw them leaving with Seiji and started chasing after them. After finishing the goons off Fire Claw came out of hiding and challenged Honey. After running from Fire Claws attacks Honey realized she had a fuel tank on her back and decided to use this against her. She lured her near a tree which was on fire and did a "Honey Flash" to blind her and kicked her into the tree causing her to explode. Honey then brought Seiji back to his hospital room and properly met his brother and father.
Sister Jill then reported to Panther Zora telling her Fire Claw failed. Panther Zora then assembled Tomahawk Panther, Butterfly Claw, Tarantula Panther, Octo Panther, Iron Shadow, Jumbo Panther, Scissor Claw, and Snake Panther to go after Honey Kisaragi. As Honey returns to her Dorm she discovers Natsuko is tied to her bed naked by the schools Sukeban gang and their boss Naoko who wanted to see Honey naked. But Honey told them why they would want to see her body when they have beautiful bodies (Actually their very ugly and manly looking). She then lead them to her boyfriend to see their reflection but were horrified at their appearance. As they left her room Naoko swore to Honey that she never forgive her for revealing her appearance to her. The next day Naoko was waiting for Honey to challenge her for the other night. As Naoko came to attack Honey pulled out a mirror and Naoko passed out from her reflection thus winning the fight.
As the night came Panther Claw began their next plan to capture Honey robbing jewelry stores to lure her out. Honey with Seiji and told her what they were doing and where they are going to strike next. As Honey and Seiji entered the Jewelry store they were ambushed by Panther Claw who were disguised as the police. Tomahawk Panther gave Honey an ultimatum to come quietly or be killed. Honey then threw here camera which broke and released smoke causing everyone to go blind. Tomahawk Claw told the goons not to use their guns but she still heard gunfire. As the smoke cleared Honey and Seiji were holding guns and the Panther Claw goons were all dead. Honey then pointed her sword at Tomahawk Panther but she began to laugh and called out to her comrades to come out. Soon Butterfly Claw, Scissor Panther and Tarantula Panther came through the ceiling into the room to capture Honey. As Honey attacked Tomahawk Claw Seiji was captured by Tarantula Panther who used her webbing to ensnare him.
Honey decided to escape but was still being followed. As she ran out of the building she ran into Jumbo Panther but was able to evade her by running up the building. Soon as Honey reached the roof Butterfly Claw came from behind her and kicked off the building. Honey was able to fall into the nearest window but found it was a trap as Sister Jill was right in the room waiting for her. Honey and Sister Jill began fighting one another but was unable to land a hit on her due to her cat like reflexes and using her whip to ensnare Honey. As soon as Honey dropped her sword Sister Jill continued to whip her until she passed out from the pain. Jill then ordered the Panther Claw Goons to tie her up and place her into their truck.
While transporting Honey to their base the Goons decided to have their way with Honey, but Honey heard them and broke out her chains and killed them. As the rest of the Goons shot at her she dodged and they killed the driver causing the truck to crash and explode. Honey was able to escape and change back into her normal clothes but she discovered another member of Panther Claw named Scissor Claw was there waiting for her. Honey was unable to preform another Honey Flash and was exhausted from the previous fight. So she began dodging Scissor Claw attacks until she ripped open her clothes. Honey decided to run but Scissor Claw decided to use her Machine Gun on her. Honey then climbed a tree to find a place to hide and found a park. As she ran for the park she performed her last Honey Flash and jumped in the middle of the parks water fountain. She then posed herself and her body was coated with a bronze coating turning herself into a statue. Scissor Claw arrived and was unable to find her or realize she was a statue. Scissor Claw then called for Butterfly Claw and Tarantula Panther to comb the area for her. As they left Honey decided to stay still and not open her eyes until she was sure they were gone so she just fell asleep. When the morning came she decided to open her eyes and was relieved they were gone but saw Danbei and Junpei Hayami were coming to the park so she continued being a statue till they left. Danbei were surprised to see a new statue and began to touch it. After a while Honey got upset and yelled at them for doing that to her. In shock they ran away and Honey dove into the fountain to get the coating off her body. She then saw a crowd of people coming and decided to hide in the bushes until she had enough energy to change. Waiting for two hours and still unable to change Honey decided to attack the first person she saw with food. After eating the persons Bento Box Honey was able to preform a "Honey Flash" and leave to find Seiji.
Meanwhile the Panther Claw member Iron Shadow disguised herself as Seiji and went looking for Honey. After a while Iron Shadow found Honey and was able to found out where she lived. Iron Shadow then sent her pet panther Jango to follow Honey. Once Honey reached her dorm she decided to take a bath but was attacked by iron Shadow and her panther. She decided to escape by jumping but she fell into another trap. Panther Zora then appeared and transported her into a circus with Iron Shadow, Tomahawk Panther, Butterfly Claw and Scissor Claw waiting for her. Honey then performed a "Honey Flash" to turn into her fighter form and decapitated Scissor Claw with her sword. As Tomahawk Panther came at her Honey dodged her and stabbed her in the head. Butterfly Claw then blew her away with her wings and shot 100 poison needles at her. With no where to escape Honey performed another "Honey Flash" and turned into knight and Sliced Butterfly Claw in half. Iron Shadow then appeared riding a elephant. Honey did another "Honey Flash" turning into a animal tamer and making the elephant turn on Iron Shadow and smash her with it's foot.
All thats left for Honey to fight was Iron Shadow's pet Panther Jango who she tried to control but discovered he was a robot. With Honeys current form not working she decided to change into a Jungle Girl and was able to kill Jango by cutting open his back causing him to explode. With all the Panther Claw members dead the circus disappeared and Honey returned to the forest near her dorm. Panther Zora appeared again this time warning Honey that she will kill her for killing her soldiers. Honey returned back to her dorm to sleep and regain her strength.
Later that Night Sister Jill came with a horde of hot air balloons carrying a army of Panther Claw members and began bombing the school and dorm. Honey awoken from the explosion and hurried to get everyone out of the dorm. As Honey and Natsuko were running were bombs fell and killed all the teachers and students. Honey was able to save Natsuko but was soon confronted by Snake Panther who threw her whips at Honey and Natsuko. Honey then turned into her fighter form and fought Snake Panther. Snake then impaled Honey to a tree with her balded whips. With nothing else to do Honey used the Airborne Element Solidifier to change her spit to Nitro Glycerine and blew Snake Panther up. After freeing herself Honey heard more Panther Claw and told Natsuko to sit down and sprayed and turned her into a rock so they could hide. Soon Dragon Panther and Tarantula Panther arrived and found their fallen comrade in pieces. They summoned the goons to comb the bushes for Honey, but Natsuko broke out of her disguise and said she was Cutie Honey luring them to chase after her to save honey. Dragon Panther then blew her flames onto Natsuko killing her turning her to ash. Sister Jill then arrived and killed Dragon Panther for killing Honey. Thinking Honey is dead Sister Jill and Tarantula Panther left. Honey came out of the bushes to see Natsuko's chared body and vowed revenge against Panther Claw for taking everything away from her.
Honey then stayed Seiji and his family and learned Panther Claw is stealing valuable objects and learns they are after a golden Buddha Statue. Honey asked for Danbei and Junpeis assistance getting into the next targets house so that she could turn into the golden statue so Panther Claw can take her back to their base. Sister Jill then arrived after Honey switched places with the statue and was taken back to Panther Claws hideout. Once locked in a vault honey transformed into Tarantula Panther and lured Sister Jill back into the vault telling her the statue disappeared. Once Sister Jill returned to the vault she realized she didn't tell any of the members where she kept the statue.
With her cover blown Honey revealed herself to Jill by transforming to her fighter form without realizing it backfired leaving her naked. Sister Jill just looked at her in Shock and Confusion as Honey continued to regain her clothes jumping and shouting "Honey Flash". Once finished regaining her clothes Honey and Jill began their fight. After gaining the upper hand on Jill by grabbing her whip. Sister Jill then retrieved her whip and began attacking Honey as a animal breathing fire on her and biting her arms. With her arms paralyzed from Jill's attack Honey was able to kick her sword into the air as Jill leaped at her. The sword went straight into Jill's mouth and through her head killing her. As she fell to the ground Jill's body turned into a Panther. With Jill dead Honey left the Panther Claw base but encountered Panther Zora again telling her she will be her next opponent as their base disappeared, Honey vowed she will continue fighting Panther Claw. She did went to the nearest lake to bath and heal her wounds. She then heard Seiji and his family looking for her and started running out of the lake trying to perform a "Honey Flash" to regain her clothes but again was not working.
