Anime Description: Birdy the Mighty

Birdy the Mighty is about an intergalactic police officer named Birdy, who, while chasing the interstelar outlaw Gegga, accidently kills a young boy by the name of Tsutomu Senkawa. Tsutomu was on his way home from a study session when Geega runs into him and eventually throws him at Birdy. Birdy, not realizing that it's not Gegga, shocks Tsutomu with a leathal dose of electricity. As a result of her actions, she is forced to merge her body with his in order to sustain his life.

The next morning Tsutomu wakes up late for the admissions exams that he was studying for. On his way to the school, he finds that he can't clearly remember what happened the previous night. During the exam, Tsutomu has problems concentrating and notices that his right hand is writing in all the answers on it's own. It's Birdy helping out from the back seat of his mind.

On his way back home Geeza grabs Tsutomu and demands to know what happened last night. Accessing the situation, Birdy takes complete control of their shared body, transforming from Tsutomu into Birdy in front of the astonished Geeza. Once Tsutomu figures out what is going on, he stubbornly accepts it. However, he eventually ends up helping Birdy in her pursuit of outerworldly criminals.
