Plot Summary: Federation investigator Birdy chases the space criminal Geega through space to Earth, where he hides in the entertainment industry under a human disguise. Birdy goes undercover herself, posing as famous model “Arita Shion” that often uses a ‘space girl’ look. A male student, Senkawa, stumbles upon a fight between the two one night in an abandoned building only to be severed in half as he is used as a shield by Geega against Birdy. Birdy heals him from imminent death in some fashion- but Senkawas body, and life, are now changed and permanently linked to Birdy.

###Birdy the Mighty Decode:02 / Tetsuwan Birdy Decode:02

[quote]Genres: action, science fiction
Objectionable content: Significant
Plot Summary: Birdy and Tsutomu are still co-existing in the same body, as Birdy continues her duties as Federation Investigator and celebrity persona, and Tsutomu seeks to balance them with his normal everyday life. When a criminal group connected to the Ryunka incident escape from custody, hiding themselves and their alien identities on Earth, Birdy and Tsutomu are thrown back into action. It seems, however, that there are other forces involved, as well as old faces, which give Birdy time to reflect on the past, and the people that influenced her.

So from reports it looks like the disc 2 actually contains Dragon Ball Z Season 4 disc 2 instead of the second part one disc. :laughing:

Just opened my Birdy collection, Disk two was Dragon Ball Z season 4 disk 2, I was thinking the error would be small like missing the extras or something.

Why did you title this “Part One Recall” when this has nothing to do with the recall?

You have absolutely no information in here about how to go about getting a new disc or any info about a recall.
