Description: A remake of Birdy the Mighty.

Birdy Cephon Altera is a Federation agent chasing interplanetary criminals to the planet Earth. While in pursuit of one such criminal, she accidentally kills a high school boy named Tsutomu Senkawa. Fortunately for Tsutomu, there is a way to keep him alive. He ends up being merged into Birdy's body and must remain so until the repair of his body is complete.

So, Tsutomu is stuck sharing a body with an attractive, strong, and impulsive space police agent while trying to keep his family and friends from finding out about Birdy. In the meantime, Birdy continues her investigation. Together, they take on a secretive group of evil aliens planning to perform experiments on the unsuspecting inhabitants of Earth.

"The original manga ran in what is now Monthly Sunday, but when Masami Yuki began serializing Kyuukyoku Choujin R in the pages of Shonen Sunday it began appearing infrequently, and was eventually abandoned. Only one volume was ever collected. In 2003 Masami Yuki moved from Shonen Sunday to Weekly Young Sunday, a seinen magazine, and began drawing a remake version, starting the story from the beginning." --Wikipedia

Holy crap I'm an idiot, thanks man. I should have seen it, especially since it freaking takes place in a ryokan!

The last kanji on the van reads 旅館. Two characters, not one. 

Here's chapter 172 a bit behind schedule, along with the long awaited character development I promised you guys.

What comes after a long miserable arc? Hotsprings of course!

And once again we have Tsutomu bitching about Birdy not doing enough even after he himself told her to stop and did everything he could to stop her from taking more action.  How many times has he wavered between wanting Birdy not to take action that would interfere with his life/move the plot along and whining about her not being violent enough, even after he spent the last two chapters calling her too violent?  Wasn't he the one who stopped her from trailing Leigh's group when they had the chance?

 

Considering Birdy not holding back is the reason for his current predicament, you'd think he'd try a understand her a little better, maybe even reflect on his own situation.  Is someone who accidentally kills a bystander in a fight by being too forceful really someone who needs to be told to hold back.  It would be nice if they explained that the accident was the reason for Birdy's hesitancy, but so far it's just another inconsistent character trait.

 

And it's still never been explained why exactly Gomez needed Birdy to take out Hikawa.  He and the androids seemed more than up to the task without involving the police officer who's trying to bring them down.  Then again, since Birdy never asked obvious questions like "where did you get access to these advanced Federation robots", I can see why he wouldn't be worried about that.

 

Sigh.

 

This arc made me appreciate the OVA even more.  At least the next arc will be better.

I really like the last panel in chapter 169.  It's a very striking moment to see Birdy barely in control and being affected by the serum.

Cleaning house finally. Dare I say the plot is moving on? Was all the spirit doping and monster soldier stuff just leading us to super soldier Chigira? With all the foreshadowing, I was expecting more WWII flashbacks. I don't think we're going to get anything else from Hikawa. I guess all that regenerating ran out the clock on his heart. What was it, 2.5 billion beats per lifetime for most mammals? If not eventually the healing and compensation becomes unsustainable as the heart becomes so thick the walls can't get oxygenated properly.

I actually did read ahead.  And while the plot does take some interesting turns (the next arc and the first four volumes of Evolution in particular), Tsutomu and Birdy never really improve as characters, and Gomez is still too much of a Gary Stu for my liking.

 

Anyway, thanks for translating!

I thought chapter 172 had some pretty good character development though. Not to spoil anything, but Tsutomu and Birdy let their feelings out pretty uncharacteristcally. It was a great moment for me and for the characters I fell in love with!

While I agree that the art is nothing to write home about and there's a bit too much exposition by text, I believe that the story and characters are truly great. Except Chigira, but we were all stuck with him and his arc for more than a year when Shion went on indefinite hiatus, so he might not be so bad after all.

Just wait until Christella Revi appears, you have no idea what will happen with her, lol. And don't worry about Chigira, he's pretty much gone for now, It's going to be Birdy lore this volume.

I have to echo many of Jahiliyyah's criticisms.  The story starts off strong, but slows to a crawl as soon as Chigira becomes a main character, to the detriment of Birdy and Tsutomu's development.  Whereas Decode and the OVA allowed them to develop a sense of camaraderie, it's been 15 volumes and they don't even seem to like each other. Manga Birdy is dumb as a door knob when her Decode and OVA counterparts were serious-minded (if impulsive and temperamental), competent detectives, and Manga Tsutomu is a selfish, flaky prig who alternates behind nagging Birdy for not taking action and chastising her when she does or keeping her from following a lead.  It also seems like Birdy has been dumbed down just so the author can give Tsutomu something to do by telling her how to do her job, and he's not even good at that.  And while Decode Tsutomu at least managed to become more sympathetic after learning about Birdy's past, the most manga Tsutomu can manga Tsutomu can manage is "Sucks that you couldn't just seal them off on their own primitive planet, lol.  Back to studying."[/size]
 
Gomez is clearly the author's favourite character, which explains why he's so bland.  Why did Birdy have to go to his office twice and then to his vacation home to have the same conversation three times?  He says he had to kill Geega and Bacillus to "protect his family", but there was never any indication that they were ever in danger.  Clearly, Revi has given him free reign to kill anyone that could be a liability to the plan, but if that's the case, why does he even need Birdy then he has the marionettes under his control?  Why doesn't Birdy tell Magus that she knows about a runaway Alterian soldier with possible connections to Revi?  It seems like Gomez is exempt from anything that might make him look bad because that's just what the author wants, and the manga suffers for it.[/size]

"Victory is mine! <Blood gushes from hand>

 

Ya might want to get that checked out. :V

Anyone know what chapter it is where Tsutomu and Birdy's minds start to fuse and he can't change her body into his anymore?

That would be ch. 122, memories of a marionette. It's easy to remember, the whole flashback arc was caused by that...

So that's why Mido is getting so much attention. I wonder if Shigenobu has the balls to deal with his now crazy retainer, or is he just going to roll over?
I've finally reached the arbitrary goal of becoming contributor! Hurray! I've finished translating up to chapter 165, which means volume 15 is officially over. I can finally rest, just have to leave the editing to Bric now.

I was thinking Chigira's not very good at connecting dots, but he never has a chance to figure out what's what. His family is part of a cult, the cult puts him in a hospital that does human experiments, he then goes to that cult to hide from the people trying to do human experiments on him.  He just knows crazy women like Leigh and Capella are after him and something was done to him in the hospital he's gone to as a kid. He never even met Hikawa.

"You gave me no choice!"

 

Best excuse, ever.

artwork is boring and manga is boring

 

gets 1 boring star out of 5

Nice, that's a pretty good thing I suppose. So low in boring elements that only gets one star...

The real rating would be between 8 and 9, I suppose.

Why the sudden rise of fan service I wonder?

 

Gotta make those babies for the sequel. :V

Why the sudden rise of fan service I wonder?

Again the main story seems to be Chigira's spiritual journey while Tsutomu and Birdy are basically just fooling around. How many chapters have there been where the most eventful thing to happen was taking a bath now?

Well Hikawa and Revi are bound to cross paths with Birdy soon, so I'd say the suspense is building up... must have been a really good bath though!

Hot date with Gomez. *__* I always knew you liked the family men, Tsutomu.
