Enjoyable action anime which is much darker in the second season!
When I started watching this series I didn't know anything about it but soon started to enjoy it. Birdy is an alien police officer who is sent to Earth to recover a particularly dangerous weapon that has been stolen. Luckily for her she looks human so while on Earth she she can hide in plain sight as Arita Shion; a popular Japanese idol! Her mission goes wrong however when she accidentally kills local school boy Tsutomu... he isn't permanently dead though as Birdy's people can repair his body; while they do this he will have to share hers! They take turns being in control of the body and as it can change appearance Tsutomu can continue his life to a degree. As Birdy tracks down the weapon she discovers that it is in a person and that that person is a close friend of Tsutomu's. In the second series Tsutomu is still stuck in Birdy's body as she hunts down a group of escaped convicts on Earth; she wants to arrest them but somebody else keeps getting to them first and killing them. We also learn more about Birdy's background in the second season.
This series was a lot of fun with plenty of action and some good laughs; I especially liked the running gag with the Yakuza whose car Birdy kept destroying by accident. The first season is suitable for most viewers but things get far more bloody in the second season when there is plenty of blood spilt some of it is shocking ways. While Birdy's costume is fairly skimpy and she is often seen taking a bath the fan service is fairly tame with little actually nudity. The shift in tone might disturb some people but I found the second season more gripping than the first; although this may have been because I knew the characters better by then.
