Big Bad Birdy by Robaato Big Bad Birdy by Robaato
Finally catching up with Birdy the Mighty: Decode (had started watching it a year ago, but I fell off), and man, as I'm coming to a close, I'm crushing MAD hard on her.

If you haven't seen Decode, do yourself a service and do so, because underneath the fanservice, she's a beast. Animation is tops too.

Nice color composition! Never watched "Decode". I've seen the original series, though, "Birdy the Mighty". It was really fun - simple, strait-forward and very well animated.

I'm with you! When I first saw it I thought it was going to be like "Cat Planet Cuties", just another 'boob and butt-fest" but it turns out it's nearly the complete opposite! This is a VERY great anime! Birdy is a seriously tough warrior who can scrap with the best!

The bizare thing is she looks like obvious whack-fodder but she's actually a delightfully original character: she's not too impulsive, not too lazy, not too self-involved or arrogant. She's has an infamous temper but it's been dampened desperately by a deep-seated regret. I'm saying all this and I've only made it up to season 2 and a hand full of episodes. Her outfit wouldn't even be that scandalous if they'd only fucking put on some white or red or something instead of just having her be bare-assed with ipod highlights.

The fanservice is really only Birdys "suit". The rest is intergalactic buddy action and superheroics. I need to finish the second season one of these days.

I wouldn't say there's much fanservice, but yeah, the anime's a gem.

Birdy's a great hero, the soundtrack is boss, and the voice acting is on-point.

So I decided to watch Decode and see what you mean, and managed to finish the first season.

And let me just say...HOLY HELL it is really good, in both english and japanese dubs (watched in Jap first, then switched and finished the season in English). And really, the fanservice is rather low-key. Sure she dresses rather skimpy, but that's about it.

For all that skimpiness, I ended up paying far more attention to Birdy as a character than anything sexual. That and since she had the strength and technology that could shield her from freaking kamehameha-like blasts, I'm pretty sure that clothing is irrelevant. Kinda got sad at the end of that season, but man it was a fun ride.

Also, has a quite some mood whiplash to it. Happy-go-lucky and comedic at one point, then adrenaline inducing shock and worry the next.

Thanks for giving me a decent anime worth watching. Now on to the second season!

Nice job! :D

I've seen the original BIRDY THE MIGHTY, but not DECODE. I'm a bit busy right now enjoying the old skool goodness that is SPACE BATTLESHIP YAMATO 2199, but I'll have to check out DECODE later.

I wonder how that version of Birdy would look tricked-out with some of KOS-MOS Ver. IV's accessories...
