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.

Recommend 16+ because of brief partial nudity and some disturbing scenes.

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. However, the boy Tsutomu does not get ...
