RE: Cutie Honey episode 1 proves that Hiroyuki Imaishi/Go Nagai is a brilliant combination. Also, I thought the universally hated episodes 2 and 3 were pretty well done too.
Plus, it's the only truly great animu that Hideaki Anno ever directed. I know the episode directors did most of the work and Anno just approved of everything, but still.
Someone needs to scanlate the original Cutie Honey manga.
