i.e. 3 minuets of every episode with actual animation.

Now that I think about it, they aren't massively dissimilar. It wouldn't surprise me if Japan Studio contained a couple of Birdy fanboys.

I just realized Birdy did the whole "ancient Egyptian Gods were aliens" thing before Stargate did.

The OVA sure, but Decode? That show was drawn by inbetweeners who outsourced the work to the Chinese who then outsourced the work to the North Koreans. You can't even use the 'style' excuse. It was genuinely awful.

If anything Decode is a lesson that the director needs to keep a tight leash on his animators and not just high idiots who's work only included web flash.

There's more than a few scenes where characters lose mass for the sake of 'fluid' animation.

Wait what?
>>
>>13596436
They mad necessary sacrifices based on the budget, and I think the risk paid off.

>Wait what?

It's from the Masami Yuuki tribute art book. Moyashimon mangaka drew that.
>>
>>13596440
Hardly when it looks ugly as sin. Very rarely do I judge anime on their animation, but if it looks like a trainwreck, I can't in good faith say it's a good series. A great example of trying to do a fluid fight scene and having look like complete shit is Toradora.
>>
>>13596447
You're talking about a couple of scenes out of a whole 25 episode series, the majority of which looked stellar.

Birdy accomplished more with a smaller budget than Toradora did.
>>
>>13596458
I still find it unimpressive if you drop the ball in the animation front and then fail to correct it during the BD release which means the poor animation was intentional. Maybe a bit of QUALITY is okay, but the choice was clearly intentional.
>>
>>13596461
The made a choice to go off-model for fluid animation. Nothing wrong with that. You're exaggerating.

Decode's Animation only seemed to get really bad in S2, the flashback arc was AWFUL.

How many more years until someone finishes translating the manga reboot? I'm surprised someone actually picked it up after Ronin Ixioran dropped it, but that faggot only translated like two chapters before abandoning it after a few months. We're still stuck at volume 14 out of 20, and then there's all 13 volumes of Evolution to go...

I've resigned myself to the fact that I'll have to learn Japanese to ever finish this manga. Decode was better, anyway.

>>13615720
Well having read >>13628653 I'm a little confused. Is Decode 13 episodes in total between 01 and 02? If not then what is the name of 02? Is it just known as Decode 02? Also as of now I have Birdy the mighty which im fairly sure is the ova, and like I said before the 13 episodes of Decode. As far as videos go do I have everything I need?

Decode in toyal is 26 episodes, 13 for 01, then Cipher, then 12 for 02.

Then there's the 1996 OVA which is 4 episodes.

Yes, Birdy still has super strength outside of her uniform. But look at >>13701993, for example. I would be damned if it doesn't look like the forcefields are acting, not her natural strength. This is only a cosmetic element, but it matters when a lot of the appeal for a show is on the super strength of its main character.

You don't give Superman glowing forcefields every time he punches a villain, and then emphasize how the strength of Superman is his own alone.

Even when I actively try to ignore them, those sparks simply don't work for me.

How much weight can Birdy lift? Realistically, canonically speaking?

I do like it whenever a show features a superhuman (or equivalent thereof) character and they have a glance of that non-human quality in a simple, literal way.

Well, she can toss a helicopter around. I don't remember any good indicators from the show or manga other than that.

An helicopter can weight from 600 kg 3.5 metric tons. With human payload, Birdy can realistically lift at least one metric ton without much weariness.

But that's not all. IIRC she lifts a locomotive in the OVA, though she struggles a lot. That gives us the upper hand of what she can lift. A locomotive's weight is in the 60 - 110 metric tons range, but most of them weight ~80 metric tons.

For reference, the world record ine Clean & Jerk weight lifting is 264 kg. Birdy is approximately 300 times stronger than the strongest man on earth.

What exactly happens in the manga after the flashback arc? There are no translations beyond that point, so somebody just summarize to me what the plot is because I know I'm never ever gonna get to read it unless I learn Japanese, which I won't.

Careful with that m8. She would break you.

Birdy wakes up. Chigira starts working for a special JDSF division with connections to Revi. Birdy Fights, then kills Hikawa but is briefly infected with the monster serum. Tsutomu takes a class trip to a hot springs. Turns out the owners are decsended from Alterian nobility and the head daughter resembels Birdy. Some guys awaken a "demon" which is really an old robot from the Alterian Empire that goes on a rampage. Birdy stops it, mysterious old man collects the remains and examines it in a lab somewhere. Nechula's ship finally arrives, Tsutomu's friends are accidently abducted and find out about Birdy. Birdy goes into hibernation for two years to prevent a complete mind-meld with Tsutomu.

Those are the parts I could understand, and that takes us up to Evolution.

I'm a big fan of the OVA but for some reason I still have to watch Decode.
I see there's quite some versions around, what do I download?
>>
>>13778347
Decode a shit. A shit. A SHIT.
>>
>>13781536
No its not.
>>
>>13781559
Yes it is.
>>
>>13781972
No, it's not!!
>>
>>13778347
THE DVD rips are a safe bet.
>>
>>13781972
I'll agree that the end of the 2nd season was dogshit, but Decode was amazing overall.
>>
>>13783094
Nataru ruined everything.
>>
>>13785878
that he did, but he did not ruin Birdy being a great character herself nor did he ruin the whole tsutomu and nakasugi thing going on. But yeah when it get's down to it, you have to remember that s2's premise was hunting down the bad guys who made the alien nuke, when in s1 it got resolved anyway so why does it matter you know, the premise of s2 felt weak to me in the first place but it was still pretty enjoyable. And Nataru being edgelord supreme and killing the little ice climber twins was bullshit.

That was all just a shitty excuse to shoehorn Sasuke and his quest of vengeance from the narutoverse to the birdyverse. Nataru felt like he came straight from a 14 years old birdy waifufag fanfiction.
>>
>>13787267
>>13787280
It felt to me like the show was intended to only be one season, but they were forced to come up with a second one. It was good in the beginning but went downhill fast.
>>
>>13787307
First season sucked though, I'd pick Nataru and his faggy vengeance quest over Tsutomu's awkward and forced romance with his bland, boring waifu any day. Season two had the flashback arc and villains that actually did things.
