Nice episode.

I especially like the episode-title effect.
The plot and the characters are ok, but nothing great, but the action animation is really good.
It's kind of obvious, though, how this will end.

Well, looking forward to next one.

Yeah I liked the episode too. But there's definitely something fishy about the girl's sudden recovery. The night before her father was told to be ready for the worst case scenario. Looking forward to more. Oh and I really liked how the crash looked in the beginning.

Good episode. Birdy really looks hawt in that skimpy alien suit off her. Loved then animation when you where looking trough Birdy her eyes when she was running and jumping. Nice action sequence to.

i was pretty damn sure that the girl who "died" in the beginning was played by Noto Mamiko, how come the voice sounded different in the end? o_O

It was far better than the first one, in my opinion. Looking forward to the other episodes.

I'm starting to really like this series. Imo, this episode was far better than the 1st one.

I wonder what's behind the girl's super quick recovery.

Entertaining second episode, although the bland, dimwitted male protagonist certainly weighed it down. I didn't really feel the need for an overly long explanation as to what happened with Birdy lending Tsutomu her body after killing him when it's a pretty typical anime occurrence. Actually the biggest problem I have with this series is that the plot and characters are so generic. The action sequences are quite fun to watch however and Birdy is cool so I'm still willing to keep with it unless it starts failing to deliver.

Good episode. I'm falling in love with the OP and ED. Love the fight animation.

And its good to keep things short and sweet so they don't drag out. :P

Yeah, that's what I was wondering. Although, I suppose it'll be refreshing to follow a series that isn't too drawn out.

I'm hoping it will continue with a second season, rather than just ending after 13 eps. They could certainly finish up the current story arc in that time, but I think the overall plot thread of the Birdy x Tsutomu "relationship" could use more time.

Does it seem like that the story is something complicated or deep for 13 eps?? If you ask me, it is more than enough, and the pool says, the only person who disliked this episode is me among you, hmm, well, looking *cough* forward to *cough* the next ep.. XD

I liked the episode as well.

But seriously nobody notices the girl's sudden recovery. I mean the night before her father was told to be ready for the worst case scenario and he doesn't ask any questions when she goes to school the next day... he lets her go!? I wonder what exactly was put into her.

Looking forward to more and its too bad it is only 13 episodes since it is looking like it is one that I will enjoy. Was impressed by the crash at the beginning.

Um...the original is only 4 episodes, so...

Anyway, I agree with this:

I'm pretty sure Nakasugi's recovery had something to do with this "Ryunka" or the other mysterious alien that's stalking her.

I'm also hoping that Birdy will get a second season since the premise of this show is pretty well done.

i'm assuming that Ryunka is symbiant/parasite that the other alien implanted in the girl as a matter of convenience (or possibly just to see what would happen, don't know enough about her character yet to say which).

the way this series is set up it would be hard to have a second series, since by the end of this one the hero should be back in his own body.

so why is she still doing work as Shion when she knows the bad guys know who she is and she has the wonderful cover story of the hero's life? he's on his own for the next 6 months, which should be more than enough time for her to complete her mission.

I liked the episode. This series has grown on me. Good animation. I'm a bit interested in girl's sudden recovery. Looking forward to more. The fight scenes was pretty cool.

I liked it. Almost as good as the first episode (not quite though) I'm really enjoying the fight scenes in this series, the animation is A+

Hmmm finally a good team subbing this, I waited so long ! Great episode just like the first, Tetsuwan Birdy Decode is a good sci-fi series with old-school characters and damn good animation... can't get enough of this ;)

Good episode overall. It's beginning to be interesting. And there is something fishy about that mysterious alien girl and the super quick recovering girl.

Great episode.
Love the ending song. Reminds me of a certain Naruto ED.

I like this more than the OVA's so far. It's nice to have the split screen when they communicate.

Definitely on board with the show. Birdy seems very dismissive of just destroying Tsutomu's body and turning his life uspide down and inside out.

Onto the next episode.

I appreciate them explaining that Tsutomu isn't always going to be stuck with Birdy but they actually have a new body being constructed for him. - I feel like that was something that could've been mentioned in the original OVA aswell.

Seems Tsutoma is going to be Birdy's moral compass.
I wonder what this Ryunka thing is, also Nakasug seems suspicious ...
