So /a/, I finally sat down and watch the first season of birdy decode. I enjoyed myself, and am thinking about to starting the second season, but i do need to ask: does the the show get better in the second season? While I did like it, I do think that /a/ has more love for the show then it deserves, at least going by the first season. If this is the high point, I'm not sure that the next season is gonna do much for me.

Second season OP is god tier though.

Birdy thread too, I guess
>>
I like the ovas more

Personally I found the second season to be better in every way provided that you are fine with the psychotic villain.

It's a real shame that we'll never get that third season.

Also, when the fuck is the rest of the manga going to translated?

Really? Maybe it was because I saw the dub forever ago, but I thought they were awful. Literally one of the worst dubs I have ever had to sit through
>>
>>100371901
psycho villains are fine.

I don't know about the manga, reason I started watching decode was because I liked it, and now that I am caught up, I just want to cry

2nd season was good, though her love interest was a pretty insufferable faggot in a "NO ONE CAN UNDERSTAND MUH DARK PAIN" kind of way.

Fuck. I don't think it is possible, but he at least isn't comparable to Sasuke in this respect, right? Only reason I ever branched out into stuff that wasn't shit was because of that little faggot
>>
>>100372094
And the love interest was pretty gay for his dead friend too.
>>
>>100372252
Homolust is fine. Tiger and Bunny have destroyed any reservations I may have had about that.

Oh. Just notice that "dead" part...
>>
>>100372094

Well, to be fair, he was a science experiment gone wrong that relied on tons of meds to keep his shit together.

That's a lot more believable than half of the CRAAAWLING IIIN MY SKIIIIN in most anime.

>>100372230

Unlike Sasuke, he actually has redeeming qualities and is quite the bro when he isn't wigging out.
>>
>>100372389
His main motivation is to avenge his dead friend, he's pretty obsessed
>>
>>100372591
Oh shit. Is birdy's love interest the villian?
>>
I thought 2nd season was better in every single concievable aspect and I fucking LOVED the 1st season. It's one of my top shows.
>>
Where s1 focused on the kid with Birdy and her issues interceding as more of a subplot, s2 is almost 90% Birdy focused with the kid hardly even having 2 lines certain episodes.
>>
The action in the second season is incredible, the last episode has one of the best action sequences I've seen in TV anime.
>>
I liked S1 for the story, but hated how the forced the whole love intrest in S2.

Finished this show recently and actually liked it (S2 a bit more actually) to even buy a figure of her. Still, the OVA is what really made me love this series - The more humorous tone and style fits it a lot better than the darker one they tried to go with in the TV series. And, yes animation is pretty good on both series.

Pic related. She just arrived today.

S2 was ruined by SASUKE 2.0

I actually thought they were lovers. And since they were not I guess the guy just needed an excuse to go crazy edgy.

One of my favorite Sci Fi action shows, actually, even if I also love the shit out of the Madhouse OAVs. The second season has some really great freeflow animation when the fighting sequences. I actually fansubbed the interquel Decode OAV with /a/'s help.

Too bad we'll never see a third season,

I can't find this for any less than $310, holy shit. I thought buyfagging was just a myth. Don't get me wrong, I am seven levels of jealous but I could never spend that amount of money on any sort of art.
>>
>>100378420
I can't find the anywhere for cheap, W-where did you get iit from? Im so jelly.
