EDITOR'S OPINIONToday we start the new Birdy the Mighty VC section and I figured who better to stay the Birdy the Mighty VC section then the eponymous character herself... BIRDY! We shall begin with the English dub of the original Birdy the Might OVA in which Birdy was voiced by Alex McCord. While I am aware that the English dub for Birdy the Mighty is to be blunt rather reviled but I actually rather liked Alex's voice and performance as Birdy. Alex's voice for Birdy is a nice moderate and youthful enough for the role and her performance does suit a strong-mannered heroine like here rather well (but her performance also works in Birdy's more light-hearten moments as well). So basically say what you will about the Birdy the Mighty OVA dub itself but Alex's work on the role is one of the better performances in that dub.
A little over a decade later when FUNimation was able to dub the more recent Birdy the Mighty anime series, known FUNi regular Luci Christian gets to take over the role here. Luci's voice for the role felt quite natural for the role here. Granted its a bit more cutesy than Alex's voice for the role but let me assure you that is not a problem with me. Anyways Luci definitely gives an energetic performance for the role as it does suit Birdy's strong mannered persona rather well and is a good example of her voice work. Overall while I know that people generally prefer the dub for Birdy the Mighty Decode over the dub for the original OVA (and there are times I can understand why) but I actually liked both performances for this role here just fine.
