Synopsis

Birdy and Tsutomu are still co-existing in the same body, as Birdy continues her duties as Federation Investigator and celebrity persona, and Tsutomu seeks to balance them with his normal everyday life. When a criminal group connected to the Ryunka incident escape from custody, hiding themselves and their alien identities on Earth, Birdy and Tsutomu are thrown back into action. It seems, however, that there are other forces involved, as well as old faces, which give Birdy time to reflect on the past, and the people that influenced her.

The original is always better than the sequel. Or is it.........?

Being a long time fan of the original Birdy the Mighty OVA from 1997, it goes without saying that I was definitely looking forward to the new series of Tetsuwan Birdy Decode. Unfortunately the first season of Decode, whilst being good and great in some areas, was lacklustre in others - especially where the pacing of the story was concerned.

Thankfully, A-1 Pictures have changed the whole ball game with the release of Tetsuwan Birdy Decode: 02.

The second season picks up directly after the end of the first. Tsutomu and Birdy are still sharing a body read more

This is the second part of the new Birdy Decode series, but you wouldn't realise it. The first season was good, but the sequel comes along and totally blows it away in almost every department.
Most notably would be the animation - 02 exhibits some of the most incredible animation in a 13-episode series for a long, long time. Where other shows might shell out for a good fight scene here and there, 02 provides stunningly kinetic action scenes throughout the entire run, most notably in its incredible finale. If you like good animation, it's a must.
But it's not just the animation that dominates read more

Both Ohnogi, Hiroshi (Script) and Akane, Kazuki (Director) worked on these series. The stories are epic and have a futuristic feel to them. More Tetsuwan than Noein, though. You'll notice that the same animation style was used in both of these series' fight scenes from time to time as well. Escaflowne is also another done by those two.

Director Kazuki Akane seems to have a pool of themes (and a pool of voice actors) he enjoys returning to, except he puts a slightly different spin on the themes each time they crop up. Birdy and HGJ had similar feels from the start: both featured an eccentric pair trying to track down criminals and bring them to justice, and the style of the dialogue felt similar as well, due to longtime Akane collaborator Hiroshi Ohnogi working on the scripts. In the second season of Birdy, however, the similarities multiplied -- voice actors were even brought back from HGJ to play similar roles on Birdy. While both shows stand perfectly well on their own, it's interesting to see the same themes explored in different fashions on both. Fans of the style of one show should get a kick out of seeing a similar style in the other show, especially as it's a feel not often replicated in anime: what matters most in an Akane show is what ISN'T said, and both HGJ and Birdy are excellent examples of this.
