Just got done re-watching ďCutie Honey: The MovieĒ which is a live action anime/manga.
I watched it before in the apartment but have to say that the smaller screen and having to keep the audio turned down didnít do it justice.
Iím not sure how they film these live action movies but every one Iíve seen looks sharp and vivid and although this is standard def it looked better than many Blu-rays Iíve seen. The audio was even better than the picture with some good surround and subwoofer action.
You can probably tell by the name this is not a show thatís meant to be taken seriously but it is actually quite entertaining if you like this genre. It certainly doesnít hurt that it stars Eriko Sato, former gravure idol, reprising that role in several scenes. Nothing but light entertainment but it was worth watching again.
I watched the subtitled version both times but after reading the Animenewsnetwork review in which they give the dub a thumbs up I guess I have an excuse to watch it once more. DVDTimes Beyond Hollywood Animenewsnetwork
