THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Turns out to be a good starting episode imo. Quite alot of lol moments, especially that car accident. And that was Capella standing behind when Birdy was doing the 'You're under arrest' shots right?

I like the OP song, though the Op animation could have been better. ED was weird but i'm lovin it, lol.


Looking forward to next episode.

I just finished watching it, had a few (?) moments since I can barely understand japanese. OP song and ED was really nice.

Aoshen already released episode one. I like the OP and ED but damn all the new cast, wonder what direction they are going
This is the worst kind of discrimination. The kind against me.

Well i loved the episode, i thought it was a great start to the new season, I'm looking forward to watching the rest of the series.
I want to see how the relationship between Birdy and Tsutomu develop during the rest of the season, should be interesting

Pretty good episode. This and Zoku Natsume show how to come back after a break. Just jump into the action of the story. The quality of animation seems to have dropped a little bit, though, everything seems much heavier than it was in the first season.

Very good episode indeed, with a nice mix of comedy and SF. We're resuming right where the first season left, but it still has nothing to do with the first OVA series by Kawajiri, I guess the two are completely separated anyway (no Nakasugi, no Nataru, no Ryunka in Tetsuwan Birdy for example, and Hayamiya is Tsutomu's love interest, which still doesn't seem to be the case in the second season of Decode).

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

Very good. Funny. I'm going to keep watching this series.
I kinda reminds me of how awesome the 1st season was. And who's this Nataru guy and that grey hair guy too. And Capella!?


The opening and ending is great! ;)

The OP is pretty awesome....I can't wait till they release it.

Good episode, starting us off from where we left off. D: I kinda actually forgot what happened at the end of the last season, did Capella become good or something?

The ending is once again strange.. This time, the living organism toy Birdy is playing reminds me of Kopin from Luminous Arc. Of course, this one isn't a daikon from the looks of it, but there is still some resemblances.

I was amused by the kid reading the Birdy comic book.

think it'll probably be a romeo x juliet thing and she'll wind up having to kill/capture him, but too soon to say for sure.

i may be misremembering, but i don't think they said what happened to her in the last season so hopefully they'll explain it in a later episode.

I was wondering the same thing. It was bugging the shit out of me when she was standing there during the photo shoot and no one seemed to notice or care (then again I can't remember her actually having any direct contact with Birdy in the first season, so go figure).

Anyways looks to be a good start and set-up for the rest of the season, hopefully it'll be more consistent than the first.

Better but it can't get much worse than last season. OP and ED are awesome. I was going to complain that the Galactic Police was one of the most incompetent police forces ever by only using Birdy to capture like half a dozen high profile fugitives but it seems they sent another one who is more like an assassin. It also seems we are going to get more background info on Birdy through her childhood friend(although he probably will be involved in events adding more angst for her). The music playing when she met him though was way way overkill.

How fucking retarded do you have to be to watch the second season of an anime you don't enjoy?

Heh, that ending makes me wonder who that is. A childhood friend? A former rival? A former lover? I wonder.

Pretty decent start of the second season, the ending was the post interesting though especially with that new character that seemed to be a childhood friend or something similar! Lets see what this season has to offer!

The ED is briliant!

Ahh, doesn't look like there will be romance between Birdy and Tsutomu.

The ED animation is awesome. Like that style
