In Equestria's not-distant-enough future, while the rest of the kingdom recovers from the ravages of war, the city of Manehattan has become a cesspool of crime and corruption. While Mayor Orange works tirelessly to reclaim the city from the gangs and syndicates, the crimelord known only as the Shadow King controls the criminal underworld.

When even the most honest citizens are forced to resort to crime in order to survive, can there be any hope for Manehattan's future? Orphaned teenagers Pound and Pumpkin Cake doubt it, no matter what their guardians try to tell them.

This may change, however, when a beautiful and mysterious unicorn warrior emerges to face the Shadow King's army of thugs, monsters and mutants. With a shining crystal blade to pierce through the darkness, and a seemingly limitless supply of talents (and costumes), the Warrior of Love, Sweetie Honey, may yet shine a light upon Manehattan's future.

Whenever i see Sweetie Honey it reminds me of the anime "Super Honey" that magical girl in a big city that stops the shadow king and such

2368262 If you mean "Cutie Honey", then thanks. That's exactly what this is based on. :twilightsmile:

Ahhhh . . . New Cutey Honey, still one of my favorite versions of the character (even if the OVA kinda collapsed on itself after the first 4 episodes :derpytongue2:). Though now you've put the darned theme song in my head, except with "Sweetie" substituting "Cutey."

I like the world you've built here--as you said, something of an alternate universe would be necessary in order for a singular hero like Sweetie Honey to shine brightly. Your choice of MLP characters to fill the respective roles in Cutey Honey is also nicely handled, taking and expanding their MLP canon backstories in a way that works with the world you've created and evokes their respective CH counterparts without forcing alien personas on them. Your writing skills are excellent and your narrative flows well from exposition to descriptive action. I'm hopeful you'll continue this as I'm curious to see more of this world unfold now that you've introduced most of the main characters. :moustache:

(BTW, in speaking of reviving classic anime in the MLP universe, I'm in process of writing a Bio-booster Armor Guyver crossover myself in a similar vein to your work here. I hope you may check it out once I get around to posting it).

In any case, this is a very promising start and a thoroughly enjoyable blend of two great franchises. Keep up the good work! :pinkiehappy:

Wow, thank you very much! I'm always grateful to hear someone likes one of my stories, especially a fan of the source material. I do indeed plan on continuing this, and have an outline for the rest of the 'episodes' in this story arc. It'll probably just take a while because I'm working on other stories at the same time, and if the word count for the rest of the episodes is like this one, it'll take a couple of weeks for me to write the next chapter up once I start. Still, if you like what you see here, I hope you'll check out the rest of my library.

Heh, yeah, that's what happens when something starts out with a self-contained vision, and then is made to carry on the storyline longer than intended.

Anyway, I think I'll watch you so I can see how that Guyver idea turns out when you get it submitted.

I'm sorry

But you've forced my hand

7778336 Wow, there are actually people still looking at this one! Maybe I should dust off what I've got done for Chapter Two and keep working on it.

I would love it if you continued the story.
