Tetsuwan Birdy Ep 03 – The feeling of mediocrity isn’t going away

I think I’m infected with the cynical reviewer disease. I guess I’ll try to be fair then.

To me so far, this seems like a show using a concept that we don’t see that much in anime, but it’s certainly not revolutionary.

An interstellar police is trying to catch criminals but in the process, a commoner on this common earth gets hurt, and in order to revive him, she has to get him involved somehow, and in this case, she simply inherits his body.

Of course the boy is in love with a girl, in this case Sakamoto Maaya’s character, and of course, some daily hijinks ensue.

One dramatic moment is Birdy’s robotic partner dies in this episode (spoiler? Who’s actually watching this show?). I’d love to see just a little bit more emotional expression and sadness, but I think the flashback is effective enough. The guy who shares the body with Birdy doesn’t have to say anything, though.

You know what my problem is ( as if anyone cares)? It’s that I’ve seen so many anime finished and unfinished, if something doesn’t wow me (is that allowed in the blogsphere), I simply don’t get excited and unbiased about it.

Nothing is particularly exciting or catering to any special tastes here. I guess if you’re a seiyuu fan in general you’ll appreciate the cast.

Even the important fight scenes don’t seem that inspired. But honestly, if you can catch this one, give it a shot. The concept and everything else about it hails back to the earlier days of anime, and you may even appreciate this one.

I'm a hardcore Anime Fan and I'm proud of it. I know so many things and I've acquired so much knowledge you wouldn't believe. But my love is anime. I've been drifting in this world for so long that I don't even know what an anchor means. I've seen so many shows that I've lost count. The only thing I'm sure of myself is that I care for the lowly and disenfranchised. I hate the rich and powerful and I love what I do, or what I can do. I like anime and I don't mind watching different types of shows. I have experience in different types of Japanese animation. I would be called an "expert" in a bizzaro world. One day, I'd like to start a revolution. I love the US, pizza, beer, sashimi, Chinese food, and steak. But I love freshly baked bread more than a well-aged steak. In reality, if I were born Japanese I'd be a real, hardcore Otaku. I love to love and I can hate strongly. I'm passionate in nature and I don't mind shedding tears.
