5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Anime! April 10 2000
I rented this simply because the box looked nice. I wasn't expecting it too be all that good. Boy was I wrong! I watched it four times, and then came to Amazon.com to buy both tapes.
The animation is excellent. It's easily on par with that of "Ah! My Goddess!" The amount of action is incredibly too, including several superb fight scenes. Most anime will show the same punch from 3 different camera angles or show a still-frame of the character on a moving background, but not Birdy. All the action is wonderfully drawn and acted out.
While the plot is only fair, the concept behind the plot is very cool. There are a few instances of jokes or lines that don't translate well, but even they aren't too bad.
The character Tsutomi was a bit too whinny at times. However, all the other characters, even the extras, were very good. The best character of all was Birdy. Her voice actor was simply amazing. You can feel the frustration, relief, etc. in her voice. The artwork for her was very, very good. I would love to see more characters with two-tone hair.
One last thing I should mention. Birdy has several rear nudity scenes, but no hint of sex. It's not that bad, and would only upset a very puritanical person. (Actually, old Loony Tunes episodes had rear nudity at times, and they've been shown on network TV for decades).
In almost every department, Birdy the Mighty is superb. I haven't seen anything I like better. My only wish is that the series was longer.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Birdy" A Great Action Movie!!!! Sept. 21 1999
By A Customer
This is one of the best kick-ass animes ever! Birdy, an alien girl of the Space Federation, comes to Earth to track down outlaws. But along the way she gets into an accident that nearly kills meek worrisome schoolboy Tsutomi Senkawa. In order to save him, his body becomes fused with hers whereas one can change into the other at appropriate times. Together, with Birdy's super-strengh and powers combined with Tsutomi's knowledge of Earth culture, they both embark on various adventures, the main one dealing with a serum that could turn people of Japan into lizard-like mutant soldiers, which carries off to the next video. What I like much was the animation which is very colorful and often exciting to watch, with a sharp visual sytle that helps a lot. The plot is good and I enjoyed the interaction between Birdy and Tsutomi, the villians and starnge monsters they're up against, and the Sankawa family, which don't know about Birdy though there have been some close calls, some mildly comical. The amine also features some of the most awesome action scences in moviedom, especailly the scence where Birdy and a mutant battle it out among the Tokyo skysrapers, causing some hefty property damage. Such is handled excitingly with great graphics, and lot more intense, with great pacing then the "shoot-them-up/blow-them-up" flicks from Hollywood. I highly recomend the Birdy the Mighty videos for any animation fan looking for a good adenture.

4.0 out of 5 stars Birdy the Mighty: Final Forcer Review Dec 16 2000
Format:VHS Tape
This is one of the best anime movies I have ever seen. It is about this boy (Tsutomu) who is almost killed by Birdy. The only way to save this boy is for Birdy to merge with Tsutomu. So pretty much the story is about this boy who wants to have a normal life but has a Girl in his head that frequently talks to him. Yet they can switch the control of the body and it will then turn into the physical body of the mind that is controlling it. It was a really weird idea for the director but it sure made a really good movie. If you haven't seen this movie yet I recommend seeing it. The anime is really high in quality and the plot is good also. See this movie if you want to watch something different!
