For what was a pretty boring premise of an alien capture, that fight scene sure as hell was over the top and just incredible to watch. Amazing. Or maybe I shouldn't be so surprised at A-1 studios anymore.

Ep 1

Haven't seen the original Birdy. Jury's out. We'll see with this one. Rather indifferent at this stage, though. Feels like a fairly generic action piece to me.

It was a decent episode. Nothing mind blowing, but the series has potential.

It's still the first ep and they only fused at the end give it time, even he does not know about it.

Maybe the sister. Certainly the two girls. The one that went to the building with him and most likely his love interest. Should have some pretty moments with her trying to "help" in trying to get with the girl and the changes.

Yeah, that's one thing I didn't like with he's parents having to leave just like that and the sister not living at home anymore something you see in typical anime/manga series but that never happened in any of the Birdy series. Gonna miss those comedy moments that Birdy had with the family.

Well from the brief clip I saw of the OVA, that guy seems younger in the TV series and that girl is more the annoying friend than a girlfriend. He's more interested in the brunette.

Maybe they are focusing more on action and Birdy since she's also the one showing the most skin.

kinda not in love with the he/she share the same body type thing. That kinda turns me off of the plot in general. That said, i enjoyed the first episode.

I never heard of Birdy before this - I thought at first that it was literally about birds, but talk about misleading name! Anyway, I like it. Lots of superpowered action and property damage during the fights, always a good thing!

This story is original in so many ways. Boys becoming girls is almost a genre in itself in Japanese entertainment, but this was certainly a special twist on it. Like UFO Princess Valkyrie taken to the next level, but (so far) without the juvenile humor.

The bland male protagonist reminds me of the typical lead in harem anime, which is always drab and "gentle" (passive) until the last episode. There is the stereotypical childhood friend, the rich heiress, even the bossy sister. It really just lacked the overly interested teacher and/or school nurse. -_- But there is no sign of actual harem action. It is so decent you could show it on a Republican convention and bring your grandma with you.

All in all, I enjoyed everything about episode 1 except the ED song.

actually if hes anything like the ova hes actually pretty smart and knows how to make a decision when it really counts.

With that said, after watching the first ep of this, I went and watched the ovas and enjoyed them looking forward to more of the anime adaption of this

I'll have to say the first episode is quite awesome, for a remake of an 80's shows it show brings back alot of charms, lol.

Initially I thought of MIB ^^, aliening living on earth hehhe. Can't wait to see what funky alien design they going to be showing next. Saeko Chiba is surely impressive yet again.

oddly I really like the first episode and it's top of my list of anime to watch because the first episode impressed me the most out of all the summer anime I checked out so far.

and the OVA was awesome

hmm i had to check this one out, it was a good remake of the original OVA series (which i still have though it's VHS...)

the plot device of no family living with him as mentioned though is bland and typical and cuts out alot of social/family interaction in exchange for easier plot device/event usage. Some of the new character designs are interesting and the modernized look is nice.

they said the parents will be gone for a half a year as the father is on assignment.

i love the family interaction in the oav, it was hillarious. The tv is defintely taking thier time with the plot as whole gegee thing was over by end of ep1 in the oav.

i'm so happy to know other people who have seen the original birdy.

I really loved that ova, even though i didn't understand it back then, (only raws with chinese subs, which i can't read.)

birdy rocks and while i'm disappointed that this birdy doesn't exactly have the same sort of personality ( probably due to the fact her seiyuu is a little bit on the cuter side) making her more "softer" i love the animation.

all i hope is that they introduce a remake rendition of the "happy celebration" soundtrack they played in the last episode of the original OVA, you know, the one when they drive off in the bus?

i loved that tune.

actually i'll KILL to get that tune.
