I was just here minding my own business when suddenly the words "say goodbye hello" popped in my mind

I had no fucking idea where that came from and I couldn't connect it to anything except that it was a song

So I googled the lyrics

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uARn2MCUZN4

Holy shit

I hadn't even had a passing thought about Birdy since I watched it years ago and this came into my mind out of nowhere

Guess this means it's time for a rewatch

Report for blogshit or we can have a Birdy thread, your call faggots

It was interesting to find out that Zack Snyder's a fan of Decode, and that it inspired a scene in Man of Steel. That explains why the action was the only good part of that movie.

It's neat to see how impressed he was by it. He may not be my favorite director, but he's got a great eye for visuals, and animation especially. "Legend of The Guardians" was his best movie, and his only fully animated one.

What fo you think we would have seen in season 3? I think they were going to borrow more directly from the manga with Chigira finding out he's descended from Alterians, and Revi was going to start being a more active presence.

Yet another anime where there won't be S3 thanks to nips and their shit taste.
>>
>>115349254
From what I understand (I can't read moon so I don't know if this is accurate or not):
Revi was opposed to the excesses of the Federation, and may have been framed. Birdy, Meegus, Skeletso, and Gomez form a clandestine faction that fights back against a planned Federation Invasion of Earth. Birdy and Tsutomu are still in the same body, but the end suggests a follow-up sometime in the future.

You know, since "Legend of The Guardians" was already mentioned, How would you guys feel if Zack Snyder made a CGI animate Birdy The Mighty film?

As long as he keeps it animated and doesn't try to turn it into "Sucker Punch 2" it might be alright.
>>
>>115350725
>CGI

I would set the world on fire

>>115349339
Just have to say that movie(and that scene in particular) sealed Mark Hamill as the best Joker ever.

Oh, and 90s OVA Birdy is still best Birdy.
>>
I forgot that the OVA had the same director as Ninja Scroll. I pulled out the DVDs because of this thread and I love how eerie the atmosphere is during the fight scene in episode 2.
>>
>>115350697
I gave up on birdy getting another season a long time ago
>>
>>115351205
Shame we don't get too many OVAs of this quality anymore. This was made in '96, eleven years after the manga first appeared, so they were taking something of a risk by adapting a lesser known property. It feels more serious than the original manga, and even kind of artsy and experimental in parts, but that just makes for a richer viewing experience.

Most OVAs these days are just ecchi tv tie-ins.
>>
>>115351484
The OVA market collapsed and they're no longer profitable for the experimental pieces we got in the 80s and 90s. Now they're just made to scrape in some extra cash.
It's a pity there isn't any large-reaching interest in Japan in tapping into markets like direct digital distribution and making that profitable. It'd be great to open the doors for new, young talent to try new things and break the stagnation of the "must sell BDs" mindset that is killing TV anime.
>>
>>115351205
my only beef with studios back then even their ova they will do shortcuts on these fight scenes, but then again this isn't akira.
I just hope khara or kyoani will just pause their evangelions and amagi brilliant parks to make ova of this quality
