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
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
I started a Birdy thread a couple of nights ago. Nice to see another one randomly on /a/.
80's Birdy is best Birdy.
S3 never ;_;
I can't do much besides gush. that show was so fucking good.
>mfw reading those youtube comments
Why do I always scroll down
birdy the best
Curiosity is hard to master.
>is this a good anime to watch cause i only watch attack on titan and naruto and bleach but i will try watching this if it is good
I don't remember much from it, but I do remember the 2nd season was better than the first, which is pretty rare.
TWO Birdy threads in the same week? Oh gosh.
Never even watched the OVA, it's nice to have some new material to add to the rewatching though
Also the unaired episode
It's a shame this series was released while digital anime was still shit, no chance of BD's ever
Whoa, I missed that song
I forgot how great the soundtrack was too.
I dropped the manga sometime while they went to the space station with insects and shit. It was better when it was on Earth. Does it get better? I wish they expanded on that robe-wearing Birdy-soldier gang.
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.
What volume were you up to? I can't remember if tht part was translated.
whoa really? the female alien's moves kinda triggered memories of birdy for me when I saw man of steel.
welp found it
This music gets my blood pumping.
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.
SAY GOODBYE HELLO KURIKAESU
KIMI TO BOKU MEGURIMEGURU
S3 never. ;____________;
I've been meaning to watch this for years. I suppose I'll start downloading.
Why are all the torrents for Birdy dead as fuck?
>no bd release
Fuck this shit.
A-1 pictures is planning a fully redrawn 1080p bd release like what Gainax did with Gurren Lagann
along with season 3
Oh just fuck you, man.
it's probably alive on animebytes
This fucking song
Because it's a crappy old show.
>You will never go on adventures across the universe with an alien space officer.
Yeah, it sucks, I had to go with WHW
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.
Ten more days until a year without Birdy TLs.
Perfect image for how I feel.
>That's not funny. That's not...
>TWO Birdy threads in the same week? Oh gosh.
no shit. i was blown away the first one i saw.
BTW: Birdy is best bro ever. never before or since had such a mancrush on an anime chick as i did for her.
Because they were monsters.
Kill it with fire.
What the fuck? Who are you quoting
Fucking ice climbers had it coming anyway.
Such a fun and interesting show.
Did Revi even get caught at the end of the manga? I still recall that it remains untranslated to this day.
Yet another anime where there won't be S3 thanks to nips and their shit taste.
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.
Really? How many shows don't deserve a S3 & how many do?
This is one of my favorite OPs of all time.
Gotta love how expressive 80's manga was.
S3 soon, Anons. Just you wait.
There will be another remake eventually, right?
>A-1 will never finish Decode
>Madhouse will never finish the OVA
>Complete manga translations will never exist in your lifetime
Too many anime to watch. Fuck...
Kill yourself. Index will easily get S3 eventually, JC Staff knows this is it's money maker. Birdy will never ever get a S3 due to it's shit sales.
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.
I would set the world on fire
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.
I gave up on birdy getting another season a long time ago
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.
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.
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
>i can't make webms jesus
>tfw no season 3
Fuck you A-1
Fuck! now I want to rewatch it again and again and again
I think everyone involved wants to make another one, but it just didn't sell. I don't know if the same people are even at A-1 anymore.
Am I the only one who likes the B-side to the single more than Kiseki?
I doubt it since at the time A-1 wasn't even a full fledged studio.
"I Love You"? Yes.
>dat entire second half
The song has been played over 300 times on my main computer alone.
I take this is the best option?
How come there's no BD version yet?
Didn't sell well enough for BDs.
Hell fucking no.
What a shame.
I picked the other one. At least it's downloading at good speed.
First season was eh
Second was great
Animation was excellent for sure
Season 2 was great except for the fucking forced romance plot.
Tuuto best boy.
Now you've got me listening to the OST, anon. Thanks for taking me back.
Even if we did get S3, chances are Birdy will get a slutty makeover and some of the magic will be gone.
That was hilarious and you know it.
I expected a bit more Birdy art to be sparked by Kill la Kill. Sad it didn't happen.
I'm currently listening to NATARU -Himeta Chikai-. Love that track
Thanks a lot, anon. I was trying to remember what happened to the male ice climber.
>Even if we did get S3, chances are Birdy will get a slutty makeover and some of the magic will be gone.
You have a point anon.
but the anime goes through the whole part 1, right?
