Pretty interesting setting, and I like the development towards the end! I do think this will get quite good, lets see what the story has to offer!

I saw the original OVA series. This follows it pretty closely.
Like this animation style.
It may not be the most fluid, but I like the exaggerated character movements. Especially in the ED.

Interesting first episode.

Liked the action, though my favorite part is still this:

Uh yeah that's a holy shit moment at the end.

I like what I see so far, the style reminds me of Gurren Lagann.

What a great start, I like how in comparison to the OVA version Birdy actually has a bit of a backstory now.
Also the part where he didn't need glasses anymore was a nice touch, considering he's actually dead and is sharing a body with Birdy now :)

The animation is also an improvement, the fights were entertaining.

The family stuff was the most endearing parts of the OVA, but of course the parents are moving away and he's living alone. This is gonna be the OVA + more meaningless stuff and unnecessary information isn't it?

This. This one cut is what sold me to continue watching. Almost started choking on my snacks when I saw that. A rotating perspective shot like that is pretty impressive for being from 2008. Hope theres more.

Starting this after just finishing the 90's OVA. I'll miss Birdy's old character design, but I think I can adjust to this one. Some elements of the story are slightly different, but it's basically playing out the same way so far.

It's hard to wrap my head around all the changes from the OVA and it seems to be relying on more typical modern anime tropes which bothers me a bit but seems like it could be an interesting anime anyhow, though I'm very hesitant to believe that it's going to be as good as the ratings on here suggest.
Also, I will say that so far I am pleasantly surprised, I really thought I would out and out hate this because the description made me think that the MC was be yet another stereotypical "loser otaku" character that seems popular in anime past 2001, but he's more just a somewhat awkward teenager. Also was worried that birdy's cover job (which I don't remember existing in the OVA) would be used as an excuse to load the anime with as much cheesy forced fanservice as humanly possible but that doesn't seem to be the case either, so I'm relieved.
