A new preview video has been released for Cutie Honey Universe, the latest animated incarnation of Go Nagai’s much-beloved transforming android super heroine, and the trailer includes a new twist to the Cutie Honey formula: when Honey Kisaragi transforms, 5 additional voice actresses will play the character. The new cast members include:
- Maaya Uchida
- Tomoyo Kurosawa
- Yukari Tamura
- Kana Hanazawa
- And Suzuko Mimori.
These voice actresses will take over when Honey Kisaragi / Cutie Honey (primarily voiced by Maaya Sakamoto) transforms into her various personas, such as the motorcycle-riding Hurricane Honey, the camera-wielding Flash Honey, the fashion-forward model / designer Fancy Honey, the costume-wearing singer Misty Honey, and the international flight attendant Idol Honey. Which actress will play each role is being kept a secret until the day of broadcast.
Cutie Honey Universe is directed by Akitoshi Yokoyama and features animation by Production Reed. The series begins broadcasting in Japan in April of 2018.
