Based on a manga series, Birdy the Mighty was adapted into anime in a 25 episode series spread over 2 `seasons`, called Decode and Decode II respectively.
Back when it was announced in magazines like Neo, it was a highly anticipated series, but due to circumstances it took me some years more to finally obtain it and watch it through a marathon.
Birdy the Mighty: Decode starts when Birdy secretly entered Earth to
track down an alien criminal named Geega as an Earth Federation police
officer. In the midst of her work, she accidentally kills a Japanese
national named Senkawa Tsutomu. To save his life, Birdy merges her body
As the two work together on maintaining their lives, a mysterious
person wishes to uses the Ryunka in order to commit genocide on the
She then moves through the layers of society, even having to go to a party at a classmate`s house, in order to continue her investigations. When Sayaka becomes possessed by Ryunka, she and Tsutomu have to find a way to purge her body from the evil `inhabitant`.
It involves more on the alien influence on our planet, even involving some mild time travelling, and a romatic intrest for Birdy...
Well, I can see why it was anticipated highly, but I also must confess i never `caught on` with the series, watching it amused but not impressed.
But if you like the super-heroine style animations, Birdy is definitly a go for you!
