Tetsuwan Birdy Decode - The Cipher is the intermission between the first and second seasons. This was released after the 2nd season aired.

This 25 min OVA introduces us to some of the players central to the story of the 2nd season, gives us more of the characters we love, and rehashes an old short joke from the 1st season.

The entire series just has this special charm about it, and this OVA is no exception. So if you enjoy read more

Cant they of aired it before so we knew why that person was like that and the other was like that and where the new guy came from?
(no spoilers there folks).

Well it is a Birdy series so its got the usual sci-fi stuff (like a bizarre Terminator thing that looks read more
