The official Japanese website for the upcoming Birdy the Mighty Decode anime series is streaming a television commercial. (The streaming requires Windows Media Player 7.1 or higher for digital rights management.) In Masami Yuuki's ongoing science-fiction comedy manga that inspired this anime, a space police officer named Birdy accidentally kills an Earth boy, so she shares her body with his spirit so he can continue living his life. However, when duty calls on this planet or elsewhere, Birdy reverts their shared body back to her form and takes over. The anime will premiere in Japan on Wednesday with director Kazuki Akane (Escaflowne, Geneshaft), series script supervisor Hiroshi Ohnogi (Kekkaishi, Noein, Macross Zero), creative producer Yutaka Izubuchi (RahXephon).
