Me and Cutie Honey

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 1, 2012, 5:23 PM


Have a great day~


Edit: New piece of sought after merch collected below!

Uh-oh. It's going to be one of those journals.
As most of you know, I'm a big fan of Cutie (or Cutey, the older media spells it this way) Honey, the first transforming magical girl created by Go Nagai back in 1973. Without Honey's impact, who knows how magical girls would be today!

Anywho, I thought it'd be a fun pre-cursor to my showing off what my room looks like to JUST show my Cutie Honey collection as it is now. I can't even tell you how much I've spent on it the last few years or so, but I can give you a hint: thousands. I've also been lucky enough to snag some hard-to-find things, though I'm nothing like Salvatore, who has one of the limited 2004 Cutie Honey live action/Re:Cutie Honey figure sets :s

Uhh, so enjoy:


And that's the majority bulk.
Oh, I also have the original wall scroll:



I always felt lucky that I scored one of the original ADV Films promo posters for New Cutey Honey back in 1994 as well:



I actually have a lot more stuff, but I figure they're not worth showing. And I'm still looking for my New Cutey Honey cel that I misplaced when I moved in with LittleRamyun last year. I really wanna frame it ; n ;
I'm going to make a list of things I'm still missing from my collection though.

Things I'm missing from my collection so far include:
Cutey Honey '73 (DVD 2, DVD 3)
Cutey Honey Flash (DVD 4)
Cutey Honey & Flash
Cutey Honey Flash (Volumes 1-4) Obtained!!
Cutie Honey: Legend of an Angel [Also known as Cutie Honey '00s] (Volumes 1-9)
Cutey Honey Flash (Game)

And that's all I really want for my normal collection :s
If you know where I can find any of these things, please let me know~

UPDATE 1: I got a hold of the Cutey Honey Flash manga (volumes 1-4) and I personally love it more than the anime version!


And back in the bulk photo in that set, I was talking about how I had garage kit Honey figures that I painted and assembled myself. It was actually really hard for me because I don't have like any sort of good painting skills, and I have giant, bulky hands :C
But I did take a photo of my kit to the official model:



The official model is painted to look like Cutey Honey's leotard in Cutey Honey 70's, while I painted my garage kit to be Honey's leotard in New Cutey Honey and the original manga series.

And that's another thing I'd like to point. Cutey Honey's hair is actually a magenta/hot pink colour, but I see alot of fan art show her with red hair. I don't understand why, since her hair didn't actually show up red until Re:Cutie Honey and Cutie Honey The Live. Other than that, it's always been a shade of pink, even a dark almost red pink s:

Well, anyway, That's my Honey collection. I hope you can now better appreciate my obsession with this character that I've been a fan of for 15 years now (I first saw the trailer for New Cutey Honey when I was 8 years old, and since then have idolized her, even if I'm a man).
Honey is probably not going to die out anytime soon as they have a brand new Cutie Honey manga series being published right now called "Honey VS" (which I haven't seen any of, yet!)

Anywho, uhhh.
A real journal will come later, yeah ; A ;

I'll see you guys then~!

Flash was pretty great, though it starts off feeling too much like Sailor Moon (since it's the same staff as Sailor Stars) but it becomes a Go Nagai show by the middle. There isn't an official English dub/sub release, sadly, and the fan subbing group that worked on it disbanded years ago. I minored in Japanese in University and ended up just importing all of the Japanese DVD releases to watch it all, since there isn't any fully subbed releases/dubbed releases :C

I'm focusing on getting all of the manga/anime/art books at the moment, so as soon as I can land 3 more DVDs, the Legend of an Angel series and Cutey Honey & F, I'm going to get back into figure collecting ; u ;
Though, that's really cheap....urgh hahahaa

Yeah this seller is really good, i buy from them all the time and their figures are in excellent shape. They always have multiple copies of each figure too, so you could probably wait a while.

Actually, I think someone fansubbed the entire CH '73 series online (Sailor Spork dropped it on like episode 14, I think, but this group went ahead and did it all I hear) so you might be able to find it with a Google search C:

I always wanted the light-up choker Honey dolls from Flash because their clothes were made of much better quality than the normal dolls hahaha.
Exactly! The warrior of love will never die. Next year marks her 40th anniversary and I know something will come of it as they just started that brand new "Honey VS" CH manga series this year > u <

I think it's great that you're able to indulge like this in something you love. Seems to be a rather impressive collection to me. I'm not a fan of Cutey Honey (Don't know, never got around to watching it. Maybe one day.) But one of the things that DID catch my attention, and make me smile. Was your Pokemon James figure. I have the exact same one. Jesse included. Though, they've gotten a bit weather worn, sadly.

But anyways. I hope you're able to continue to collect on Cutey Honey, as much as you're able. Maybe one day you'll get that really rare Flash doll.

Hahaha, a little /too/ much indulgence I think XD;; But it's the only one thing I focus on (I guess I shifted from Pokemon to Cutie Honey on collecting haha)
And awesome! I always wanted the human figures from Pokemon, but I didn't get them until a few years back. I have this weird shrine thing on top of my desk next to my Cutey Honey Flash statue that is dedicated to my Pokemon figures that I have left haha.

And thank you ; u ; I actually JUST bought all 4 volumes of Cutey Honey Flash (manga version) last night for only 60 bucks, so I'm really excited for that to ship over from Japan XD I hope that if you ever do get the chance to, you might give Honey a shot. Fan subbed series include Cutey Honey '73, Re:Cutie Honey and Cutie Honey the Live, and the Live action movie/New Cutey Honey have spread around officially. The only series not released anywhere outside of Japan/Germany or even finished being fan subbed is Cutey Honey Flash, the series done by the Sailor Moon staff

Well, I've seen it on Netflix (I'm fairly sure of anyways) and have thought about giving it a watch. But then other stuff distracts me (Yaaay for Doctor Who season 7 soon :heart: ) I've seen most of Sailor Moon, usually growing up, so that seems a bit interesting to me. (Of which, there's a rumor going 'round that Sailor Moon is about to get a reboot, which I'm hoping is true.)

Oh wow..I kinda rambled there, didn't I? X3 Anyways, I'll try to remember to take a chance at it, and I hope you get your Manga soon.

I'm trying to catch them all! Luckily, the longest Cutie Honey manga series is only 9 volumes, but it's a real hassle trying to find it > n < I /just/ bought all 4 volumes of Cutey Honey Flash's manga series last night though, so now it's down to just a few more left DX

What manga series of your own would you like to complete the most of, would you say? o:

Awesome collection. Great job on the resin kits. (That's what they are called right?) I actually found and bought a rare Cutie Honey Flash doll from Amazon. It's sort of like a Barbie doll almost. It was made by Bandai, if I'm not mistaken, I think they also made Sailor Moon dolls when they were popular in the US. The eyes are really detailed, I am just amazed by the quality. And I only paid about 15 bucks for it, and I got the last one. XD

Though, on a side note about rare Cutey Honey Flash dolls, here's the rarest one, even in Japan: [link]

It's going for about $410 or so XD I would like it just for the rarity of it, but I'd have a better chance finding a Misty Honey doll (which is pretty expensive too)

Thank you c: Did you get the 6" or 12" doll? I have the 12" one (in my figure collection near the top). They aren't too hard to find at conventions though, I see them at a lot, especially the 6" ones(though they usually sell them as "Cutie Honey Sailor Moon" because the vendors are stupid), but the hardest to find thing so far was my 2 foot statue of Honey > n < It wasn't too bad, but now I'm after the 2 foot Kisaragi Honey statue and that's going to be another long wait argh.

I got a 12 inch doll. Unfortunatly I can't travel to conventions, although I really want to, but I'm still only 17 though, so I might go sometime in the near future next year maybe. I'd also enter the contest too. LOL! "Cutie Honey Sailor Moon" XD I hope to find a doll of Honey Kisaragi sometime. I did also see a 12 inch Nurse Honey doll, but I didn't have enough for it yet.

Thank you c: It's actually the biggest I know of now :C My friend Sal's was a bit bigger with harder to find things, but he was robbed back in early 2010, so...yeah D:
But I'm going to try my hardest to get the majority of things argh. There's so much merchandise.

And a lot of people haven't heard of it, or if they have, they're convinced that it's hentai XD But you should totally check it out uguu
