Birdy the Mighty Decode
Tsutomu Senkawa is an average high school kid who is busy studying for his senior entrance exams. Tsutomu goes out for some fresh air, after a hard day's work studying for a big test, when he runs into a guy fleeing from a pretty young lady. The pursued man is actually an interplanetary criminal on the run from a Federation agent called Birdy Cephon Altera. Caught in the midst of this chase, Tsutomu gets thrown by the man at Birdy, which kills Tsutomu. Fortunately for Tsutomu, there is a way to keep him alive, although it comes at the price of discarding his body. He ends up merged into Birdy's body.

looks good so far.
This is just the kind of premise I like - cute girl, dual identity, a little low-key sexual tension but unfortunely it's not really established until the end of the episode, so I'll have to watch the second one to make sure.
It seems all the shows this club once watch is making their way back as remakes. In this case, DECODE is superior storytelling and production quality that it seems all new again. Enjoyable even for those who never seen the original.
