40 Years of Honey by Kurumi-Lover 40 Years of Honey by Kurumi-Lover
"Happy 40th Birthday, Honey!"

A piece I had started LAST YEAR (2012 when this was written) in preparation for Honey's 40th anniversary since the airing of the first episode of the 1973 TV anime, which took place on October 13.
This isn't all the different variations of Cutie (Cutey) Honey there is, but I included a lot of the main/more famous ones.

Versions represented and original artist:

Idk, the 1994 version was the only one NA had for awhile until we got the live action movie in 06 and the 70s version in 2015 o:
I wish it was though, because it's pretty great.

And it's disappointing that it only has a few fan dubbed episodes.😥
The style is also similar to the Sailor Moon series because the same team worked on it.☺

Yeah, I had to spend an obscene amount of money to import the whole series just to finish it.
And yup, the entire staff behind Stars got to do it <3

I'm not sure; another live action adaptation was a little disheartening, but i will nonetheless give it a shot, but seeing the few images released so far confuse me as to what Honey is supposed to look like. s:
we shall see with time, however.

I thought the movie was... well, stupid fun. Not really well made and dragged in the middle but ultimately was worth seeing. The live action series of 25 episodes was AWESOME. I loved it. Maybe if it's more that, it'll be great. :)

Great job mimicking all the different styles Honey has been drawn in over the years. I'd almost swear these were drawn by Go Nagai himself. You are a great artist. Thumbs Up

A real honey of a collection.  You've included all my favorite Honeys, which is to say, all of them (that I'm aware of, anyway).  Would that the '73 TV Honey had looked as good as she does here!  I'm hoping that you'll someday have a go at Nagai's other, even flashier heroine, Kekko Kamen; that would be splendid.

Kurumi-Lover Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I've thought of doing a Kekko Kamen piece before; the closest I've gotten was drawing her on Miki's sweatshirt on an old Devilman picture I once did (that was subsequently deleted off of deviantART and got me banned for like 2 weeks hahaha)

:icononimoroboshi:
onimoroboshi Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2015  Professional Traditional Artist
You should perhaps have noted that your Miki was '18 years of age or older'.  But still, a T-SHIRT!?

I've no doubt that your rendering of Kekko Kamen would be as stunning as her, let's say, most splendid attack move, and consider all the time and effort you'd save on clothing drapery and coloring.

Kurumi-Lover Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ohh, there was just some other not appropriate things happening in the image that weren't related to Miki, actually.
I thought it was a hilarious idea, especially with the almost canonical RyoxAkira on the side thing hahaha.

Now I'm really intrigued.  You'll probably think me a yo-yo for asking such an off point question, but any idea why Honey flashed into Saki Asamiya in Shin ep. 5?  And as a not very keen observation, Nagai crosses over his own chara almost as frequently as Tezuka did, don't he... well, time to go I think, but not before saying, I appreciate you taking the time and trouble to reply.

I think it was just because that was another popular OVA at the time. Kind of like the fact that Minky Momo made a cameo in episode one, which I can only assume is because the chara designer for New did the character designs for the early 90's Minky Momo series.
And no problem at all c:

I just ended up buying all the DVDs and importing them from Japan for Flash
It got fansubbed to episode 9 though, so you should be able to at least find 2 more episodes online o:

The only ones out there are fan subbed? Oh dear..guess I need to learn Japanese. I got addicted to it. -_- I just liked all the outfits. Go figure I'd want to watch an anime that is one of the hardest to find and doesn't even have a proper sub. 


Thank you for letting me know!
