130 pictures. Spoilers for episode one. Pretty much worksafe (some blood, fighting). Harsh language, the usual retardation. You know the drill.
(This ship looks like a dolphin to me. I like it.)
Birdy: Crap, I can't see anything with this annoying display in my face! Curse these pop-up ads!
*cue 90s music with heavy saxophone*
Lizard: Sir! A Federation officer is on our tail!
Lizard: Also sir... you looks ridiculous in that.
Geega: You're just jealous that your suit doesn't have cute eyes like mine.
Lizard: Uhhh... sure.
(These eyes shoot LASER BEAMS. So cool~)
Birdy: Well, we can play that way. Let's go, Kyuuto!
Birdy: I love this part!
Lizard: S-she just punched her way into the ship!
Birdy: I'm here to kick ass and take names! ...and to look good in this bunny-hooded helmet.
Birdy: Stop in the name of love and peace!
Birdy: Now you've got two options: I can kick the crap out of you or you ca-
Kyuuto: Birdy, the other two aren't here.
Birdy: -n... huh, what? No way.
Birdy: SON OF A WHORE!
Kyuuto: It looks like they took a ship and escaped into this system here.
(and then she proceeds to kick the crap out of the ship.)
Time for the Opening!! Now we get to start seeing the pretty colors they use for this series.
(HI TSUTOMU, ILU YOU DORK)
(I think this is a nice logo. I like the colors. )
(He runs pretty much the entire opening)
(Hayami and... some other girl!)
(The boys! ...I totally forget the important one's name. I hope they get to the arc about him!)
(I think she's another Federation Officer)
(I'n happy that the reported guy has a part in this. He's pretty neat.)
(GOMEZ!! After consuming everything Birdy I can get my hands on, I still can't quite figure this guy out. Every time I think I understand him, something happens in the story and I'm thrown for a loop.)
(And then there is this guy. I'm not sure who he is.)
(Oh, and her. They call her by name in the episode, but I don't remember what it was. Something about her bugs me.
(Look at those sweet colors! I want to draw a picture using those colors.)
(At this moment Tsutomu figures out that he's running toward Birdy, and it's because of Birdy that his life is so messed up now.)
(But I guess he's okay with that.)
(That face is totally a "nervous laugh" sort of face.)
(ONE PLUS ONE EQUALS.... ONE MESSED UP LIFE)
Photographer: Okay, Shion! Pose for us!
(SHE'S SO CUTE!!!)
(So many cute and fanservicey poses!)
Manager: Oh my goth guyth!
Photographer: Oh, it's that gay guy.
(He. Is. So. Gay.)
(Shion sexy shots!)
Otaku guy 1: SHION-CHAN OMG. SO HOT.
Otaku guy 2: Duuude.
Tsutomu: Yeah. Okay. Whatever.
(Tsutomu is so adorable! I miss his freckles though...
Look how cute he is with them! Oh well, I'll get over the loss.
Possibly of interest: Tsutomu is reading Grooming Up?, and the mangaka for Birdy, Yuki Masami, made a series called Grooming Up! Fun stuff.)
Otaku guy 1: Look how sexy she is!
Tsutomu: I don't go for that type.
Otaku guy 1: How can you not?
Tsutomu: Get your magazine off of my horsie manga!
Otaku guy 2: Tee heee heee Shion-chan~!
Hayami: Hey, look at this! It's that stupid alien character, Shion-chan! I can't believe you guys are looking at this.
Shion: Hi~ I'd like to get these.
(I am SO hungry for rice balls now.)
Shion: Hey guys, I'm really Birdy and I'm still looking for Geega.
Birdy: Say whaaaat?
(OH GOD IT'S GOING TO GIVE ME NIGHTMARES!!)
Scary thing: I'm hear for the rent or to get money from you guys or something and I'll give you information.
Birdy: Maybe now it's the part where I find out about Geega. I'm obviously totally shocked. Annaliese should go back and check the episode, but it is late and she is tired.
Geega: So, that's the deal.
Dolls: Give us your souls. YOUR SOOOUUUULLLSSS!!!
Guy: My little babies want to eat your soul. Don't worry though, I won't let them eat something that dresses like you do.
Geega: Hey! Wearing my sweater like this is stylish!
Guy: AHAHAHAHA no.
(I think she looks really cute dressed up like this.)
Kyuuto: I'm totally
Birdy: Hey guys, check this out! I can do this skating-jumping thing that is way cool.
Tsutomu: Duuuuuuuude. Abandoned buildings are cool.
Cellphone: Hi. We're not coming. LOL. -your friends.
Tsutomu: Don't follow me.
Tsutomu: Alright, my secret entrance worked.
Hayami: Uh. Er. I'm stuck.
Hayami: That's not funny.
Tsutomu:....=).....okay, I'll help out. Let's go exploring!
Geega: You kids can't explore here. Go home.
Hayami: Why don't you go home?
Tsutomu: No, it's cool. We'll head home.
Hayami: You're such a wuss.
Tsutomu: Hey, I suddenly saw my life flash before my eyes.
Meanwhile, Geega heads to the roof.
Kyuuto: Hey Mister Geega~♥ I want you to meet Shion-chan!
Shion: I'm Shion~!!!! Do you recognize me?
Shion: LOL J/K.
Geega: Uh, uh, uh... GO MY ROBOT SERVANTS!
*DODGE LIKE WHOA*
Birdy: That was a good warm up.
Robot #2: Ow, my everything!
(DON'T YOU WISH YOUR BOYFRIEND WAS HOT— LIKE— GEEGA?)
Birdy: ...but now I get to have some fun!
(Geega comes equipped with fire-breathing action!!(
Hayami: So, I think we're lost.
Tsutomu: All we did was come up one flight of stairs! It shouldn't be that hard to get back.
Hayami: Then YOU lead.
Tsutomu... no, I'm good.
Hayami: ....whatever. Oh hey, is that a fight up there?
Federation Girl: This is better than cable.
(BURN BABY BURN)
Kyuuto: Waaaah~ I'm okay!
*more fighting noises*
Photographer: YES!!! I HAVE PROOF!!! YESSS!!!
Photographer: I got some sexy shots too... these will go in my... personal collection.
Photographer: OH SHIT MY CAMERA!!!
Birdy: Well, I'm getting tired of this running around. I think I'm just going to kick your ass now.
(More like this, am I right?)
Tsutomu: Now we're at a dead end. Not cool.
Hayami: You know what's even less cool? That THING coming towards us.
Tsutomu: In the name of things glorious and good! =O
Geega: Hey boy, you with me.
Tsutomu: I know you don't have candy in your car!! Let go of me!
Hayami: Let go of him!
Geega: No, girl! *shove*
Hayami: Heyyy *thud*
Geega: Now she's conveniently unconscious.
Birdy: Geeeeeegaaaaa~ I'm coming for you!
Birdy: Here comes the pitch!
Tsutomu: OH GOD THE PAIN I'M DYING
(In the OVA and the first manga as far as I know, Tsutomu is killed by electrocution. In the new manga series, he gets a hole blown out of him. Now he gets DEMOLISHED. What will be next?)
Birdy: Aaawwwww fuck.
(The reflection in Tsutomu's glasses totally show's Birdy's "whoops, my bad" face.)
Tsutomu: Everything is so cold.
Birdy: Hey, pull yourself together!
Tsutomu: I'M DYING, OKAY?
Tsutomu: What th- a dream?
Tsutomu: Where are my— Oh, here are my glasses.
Tsutomu: GWAH! Bad perscription!
Tsutomu: Wow, it's like my sight has improved overnight!
Tsutomu's mother: You sure you're going to be alright by yourself?
Tsutomu: Yeah, I'll be fine.
Tsutomu: Don't worry about me.
Tsutomu's sister: Byeee~
Tsutomu: Bye mom, bye dad!
Tsutomu: So my parents moved away today.
Hayami: Sounds like a convenient plot point.
Tsutomu: Yeah, I know... it makes me nervous.
Hayami: And where are your glasses?
Tsutomu: Oh man, so I woke up and I COULD SEE JUST FINE. Like... a miracle happened.
Hayami: In other words, you're wearing contacts.
Tsutomu: Hi guys, I didn't think you'd be in this episode.
Tall Friend: We snuck in.
Otaku guy 1: Hey!!!! I brought more pictures of Shion-chan!
Tsutomu: Never touch me again.
Geega: That guy said my sweater-wearing technique was gay, so I'm trying to Florida cowboy now.
Gomez: You look like a fag. And by that, I mean you look retarded and I don't think you should be allowed to dress yourself.
Tsutomu: I'm hoooome!
Tsutomu's Sister: (on answering machine) I'm not here for various reasons!
Tsutomu: *sigh* I'm all alone.
Birdy: No you're not.
Birdy: I'm here too!
Tsutomu: *looks wildly around the room* Where? *slips, gets knocked out*
Tsutomu: Zzzz... Zzzz... huh? what? Where the hell am I?!
(The ending song is by Afromania and it pretty catchy. The animation is totally lazy, but i like it.)
(Team Birdy, ready to go.)
Tsutomu meet's Birdy's boss!
Tsutomu: GIANT GRASSHOPPER?
Birdy plays helpless girl!
Birdy: Oh please sir, would you help me up?
Birdy the Mighty: Decode Episode 2: The Partnered One!
I'll make this quick since I keep beginning to nod off.
This show is AWESOME. There are some definite changes, but I think they'll keep the show interesting for those who have read the manga. The problem I discovered while trying to screencap Soul Eater was that I knew what was coming and it just wasn't very exciting for me. Birdy seems like it'll grab me more and I'm curious to see what they change.
I love the music, the opening, the ending, the colors (I mentioned that twenty times already, didn't I?), he characters... just about everything in this series. Tsutomu is just as adorable as ever, and Birdy as Shion is too cute for words.
Now I'm off to bed. =3
Hahaha, it looks like Hayami should be "Hayamiya," and Kyuuto might actually be Tute or something. I like Kyuuto better, and I can't find a listing on the official website, so I'll keep it as Kyuuto for now.
