Good art, colouring, voices, and sound ^_^ Can't wait to see more episodes. Oh, it also has a really neat ending too, all iPod style =P

I liked it! I'm so glad someone picked this story up. The OVA was one of the first anime videos I'd ever seen. ^^ The opening song was nice, and so was the ending. I liked the character designs, but I think I prefer the old design of Birdy. Is anyone going to sub this?

While I have no prior experience with Birdy I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this episode and hope that it stays this entertaining. Easily the most promising thing I've seen from this summer thus far.

I saw the RAW i hope that a group doing subs will use HD since IZ isnt ; ;.

Im definately pleased with it, I noticed alot of changes but im happy with the new animation style and a cuter but more badass Birdy. Being the first anime the i ever saw the OVA means alot to me and i really have high expectations for this TV series i cant wait to see what they do with the 13 episodes.

first episode was good but it unfortunately looks to be heading into the superhero and monster of the week realm- both of which i'm not a fan of.

This first episode was pretty good! Really liked the fighting sequences.
The ending was pretty good to (it's a rare thing for me, to enjoy the ending more than the OP =P).

Decend first episode.

Nothing great, but it was entertaining and the action scenes were one of the better in that specific genre.

Moreover it's pretty funny for the heroine to accidentally kill the main guy in the first episode (though not really new). xD

I think the fight was really well animated. The premise is a little strange or corny but I'll see how it turns out.

I've been looking forward to this one. The action sequence was well animated, and was entertaining. Seems like it'll be pretty good.

Pretty good episode, I'm liking the characters already. Looking forward to more. Music is good too, the ED is better than the OP though.

Thx Kina.

This anime have this "old" feeling to it, like it's made in 2000 but really good first episode so far. Ending song is tight.

So we're only an episode in, but already things are looking promising. I feel like I'm really going to enjoy this show.

The original source is a manga right? Is there any chance of there being any sort of deviation from that? Did the original OVA stick to it? This is my first exposure to anything Birdy so I would like to know.

I enjoyed this episode. I liked the voices a lot, and the animation was well done.

I think I prefer the original birdy's character design from the OAVs. Watching this did make me feel nostalgic, it has been so long since I watched those OAVs, but I really enjoyed them too.

I am just happy to see new Birdy, and happy to see they put some effort into it. Nice op/ed also.

Although the pace were very different from the manga version, but I like the way setting but alot of later development character that was show up in later volume of the manga suddenly making first apperance in this first episode. I hope this anime doesn't rush the story too fast, as I can see alot of usual details the manga best lines and scripts were absent from the anime.

Probably the best is the fighting / action scene. Very unique and have the old style feel in too.

Pure Kazuki Akane series so far : great animation, very original plot involving protagonists from different worlds trying to know and interact with each other, very solid characterization (with a love triangle of course) and on top of that a perfect direction.

Oh and the Afromania ending made my day too ;)

I sat through the first 2 minutes and thought that it would be another shitty anime. then the OP started and I was intrigued. Another 10 minutes I was taken in by the art. It was good. Then the action caught me by surprised. I was pleased. After 17 minutes the story took an unexpected turn. I'm sold!

A good first episode, I'm liking the characters already especially y Birdy. Action scences were well done.

It's pretty funny for the heroine to kill the main guy and should be interesting to see them sharing the same body... don't know how thats going to work out... conflict in genders and all... not to mention she is an alien.

don't know if it was because i was streaming it or not, but it seemed really jittery to me, like they were only drawing every other frame or something.

I can't exactly remember why I started watching this. The character designs and synopsis were mildly interesting, I guess. I watched the first episode not expecting much, but it was OK, so I decided to stick with it. Early on it was dangerously close to being a monster-of-the-week or just dumb, but it got better. Though I must say, Birdy's suit is a little... questionable for a galactic police officer. Personally I'd prefer something with a little more protection, but I suppose the abilities it gives her make up for that.
