Editorial Reviews

Birdy is a jaw-dropping, pin-up sensation with a secret. Under the cover of darkness, this dream girl becomes a bad guy’s worst nightmare. Birdy dons her crime-fighting costume and hits the street as a lethal, interstellar federation agent charged with nailing the most dangerous criminals in the galaxy. Her latest case involves a gang of extraterrestrial terrorists and a stolen space weapon that could nuke every living thing on Earth. Birdy’s got the moves to stop them dead in their tracks, but there’s one big problem: she’s got a nasty habit of going berserk, and somebody always gets hurt. Yeah, Birdy may be dreamy, but she’s also the only thing more dangerous than the bad guys.

This is a hidden gem among all the big budget anime titles. I will admit it lacks the flashy CG of all the big budget films, but what it has is solid substance. The plot is well constructed through out the entire series; it did not leave major questions unanswered, nor dropping the balls at the end like so many seemingly great titles did. (Remember Evangelion? 15 years and it still doesn't have a proper ending to the series. I really hope Evangelioin 3.3 does not disappoint.) It has in-depth character development which mainly focuses on the two central protagonists. You will see that the wimpy guy is not so wimpy after all, and the seemingly happy-go-lucky bubble head actually has a very complicated past. In short, everyone got their own side of the story which clearly gives the central characters tangible emotions. The animation is solid in terms of 2D graphic; though it could really benefit from a larger budget on the visual side.

Overall, this is a lesser known great animate.

This certainly was not an extremely popular series when it came out. However it was really good. What you are actually getting is two seasons of 13 episodes. The first season was good. The second season was much better.

The initial set-up of Tsutomu and Birdy sharing a body is frankly a bit strange, but once you get past that you have a really excellent series that you will not be disappointed with.

The plot may sound like a joke, but it weaves together so well. I found myself watching a entire season in one sitting twice! It sneaks up on you in that way, with the characters growing on you with every episode. I just wish there was more of the series. The only suggestion I have is Blu-ray pretty please.

A WMD called the Ryunka has come to Earth. An interstellar police officer named Birdy has come to retrieve it. In a battle trying to recover it, Birdy accidentally kills a young man named Senkawa. In order to save his life, Birdy merges with him. Now they share her body until his can be regenerated. Together they search for the Ryunka, and try to save the planet. During their time together, they both meet someone and fall in love. But the Ryunka has a way of tearing people apart. Will either of them be able to be with the one they love? Or will they all meet a tragic fate?

This anime is very well done. The animation, voice acting, and soundtrack are all excellent. It took a few episodesto get into it, but a very serious and emotional story unfolds. Love and loss are major themes in this series. The characters have depth and are very likable. There is a lot of action, drama, suspense, romance, and a little comedy. It's a very well rounded show. The animation style reminds me a bit of K-On; at least in the character designs. It's rated TV MA. I assume it's for violence. The violence can get pretty heavy. There is nothing that I would consider nudity in this series. There is an occasional bare rear end scene in the bath tub, but that's it. There is a lot to love about this series. It has everything an anime needs to be great. I think just about every anime fan can find something to love here.

A truly underrated show that I feel deserves a 3rd season. If you're a fan of anime fight scenes you should check this show out at least once.

This is a series is a cross between Cowboy Bebop, Tenchi, and Bleach. A wonderful blended story that has appeal in many genres. The only drawback is that when you watch the last episode, you leave wanting so much more. It is refreshing to see such good writing in an anime. I highly recommend this series. It is a great romp!

In an age where everything seems to be going all CG, it's refreshing to see a few studios still doing more traditional animation in an excellent fashion.

The series is super condensed if you've read the manga, with lots of changes to the plot, but the essentials of the manga still come through. Romance, war, heartbreak, friendship, tragedy, and more. It's rare that a television cartoon can have you empathizing for the characters as people, but Birdy, Tsutomu and his friends, and others really come out as believable individuals. I'm really disappointed that they didn't produce the 3rd season (characters are hinted at or seen irregularly who are big people in the manga), but it still was good enough I had to have a copy.

DVD transition, given that this was an HD broadcast in Japan, was done well without unnecessary smoothing or distortion, and our Sony BR player produces a near perfect HD output from these discs. I would have picked this up on Bluray, but it was only produced that way in region 2 with only the original Japanese audio. I can handle watching a Japanese broadcast, but my children also loved Birdy the Mighty and it is simpler to sacrifice definition to get the English audio, plus Luci Christian and the other crew produced a very good dubbing.

Very worth it!

I knew knew nothing about this serie when I purchased it. It was the cover art that had me at "Buy me". But the plot of the story line had a great twist. I watched the dub sooooo..... I felt the translated story telling was great. Birdy was just adorable as a kid. Its been over a year since I saw it. I want to watch it again. Im still waiting for the next series to come out.The original is a different concept so watch this series with an openmind. Sub or Dub.
