Super Recaps: Cutie Honey the Live Episode 4 (The Terrifying Auction!)

We’re back with another episode of Tasteless Power Rangers!  When we last left the Pink Ranger, er… Cutie Honey, she had just had her first taste of failure and she did NOT like it!  Not on that, but a new player is in town and the hospital is still causing trouble for those in the community, including her friend Hayami!  Can she stop the EVIL hospital’s experiments before it’s too late?  What does Watari have in store for her now that she’s caught his attention?  Will the special effects get any better!?  Let’s find out!!

The episode begins not long after what had happened last time and we see that Honey Kisaragi is still mourning the death of Matsuda who was taken away by Panther Claw after his arm detached at the bicep.  Honey, being perceptive for once, believes that the hospital Matsuda had visited has something to do with it, but Hayami is not as eager to peg them as the bad guys considering that the hospital cured his illness in the last episode.  Of course, WE know that he’s actually been injected with whatever EVIL medicine had turned Matsuda and others into uber powerful bio-cyborgs and that he’s on borrowed time until the drugs start to eat him away from the inside (as they have done with everyone else so far), but at least the guy can now throw a baseball pretty fast.

Super Recaps: Cutie Honey the Live Episode 3 (Nurse and Explore!)

We’re back with another episode of the best live action series based on a Go Nagi work!  I mean, at least as far as I can think of.  Sure, there’s like twenty Kekko Kamen movies but has anyone besides me actually WATCHED any of them?  Yeah… this is better.  ANYWAY!!  The last episode was an improvement on the first, but can this one continue that trend and improve the series even further?  Let’s find out!!

The episode begins with a bit of Déjà vu considering that once again Cutie Honey is on the ropes and is about to get taken out by the Panther Claw dude which is exactly how the LAST episode began.  Hayami recognized this pattern as well and does his best to sneak past the Panther Claw dude so that he can save Honey.
