Cutey Honey Flash (1997)

Director: Noriyo Sasaki
Studio: Toei Animation
Starring: Ai Nagano, Susumu Chiba, Makiko Ohmoto

Honey saves a German archaeologist who has discovered a 6000-year-old butterfly cocoon that has made him a target of Panther Claw.

This theatrical short fits in somewhere in the second arc of the story. It's one of those extended episodes (and barely even that, only running little more than ten minutes longer than the average TV episode). The plot is inconsequential to the larger story, but it does a few interesting and/or amusing things, so if you like Cutey Honey Flash, you should like this too (and if you're not a fan, this isn't going to change your mind). Production values are slightly higher than the TV series, but not by that much, so don't expect any particularly mind-blowing animation. It's well enough worth seeing if you like Flash, but nothing that remarkable all told.
