“A little nonsense now and then, is cherished by the wisest men.” - Roald Dahl

Well, I'm back again with another obscure, bargain bin title review, this time: Birdy the Mighty.

Preface:

Birdy the Mighty 1996 is a precursor to the more popular BTM: Decode series, which aired more recently. Masami Yuki, a guy who's done literally nothing else of note, started Birdy way back in the mid 80s, which he mysteriously and abruptly stopped writing. (it was probably the cocaine, that he along with everyone else back then did, 'the 80's, mannnn'.) Well, Birdy was turned into a 4 episode OVA series by everybody's favorite studio read more

Birdy the Mighty started as a 1980s manga that combined tropes of the "Magical Girl" genre with the Space Bounty Hunter genre. It is unsurprisingly about a lose cannon Galactic officer named Birdy. She gives zero fucks and often causes some massive collateral damage. However, after accidentally killing a random Japanese highschool student, her boss comically yells at her and forces her to save his life by binding his spirit to hers. Anime fans will instantly recognize the similarity to the relationship between Alucard and Seras from Hellsing, which came about 10 years after the Birdy manga concluded.

Good old fashion space alien takes over human and fights evil show. Characters are believable and interesting to watch, attention to human motion is impressive in this animation and design style is rather nice not complicated by extra layers of shading. The music isn’t half bad either and usually appropriate to the situation. Guys family is fun to watch as they can be comicly sarcastic. Recommend 16+ because of brief partial nudity and some disturbing scenes.

one of my old school fav that just goes to show that know matter how short an anime is, it can still be packed with quality.This anime starts fairly straight-forward.Tomu is a loser teen with absolutely no hope for his future.He gets bad grades,he's unpopular and his own familiy think he's a prick.Cant get any worst right ? wrong ! as one day he unwittingly finds himself between an alien police officer called birdy and a evill alien thug.Tomu almost die in the incounter and in order to save his life birdy is forced to merge her body with his.

Tomu life from therein gets even read more
