I love these cuts from Niho Tomoyuki. The timing for the beginning of the clip provides a sort of 'zero-to-sixty' pace for the clip. First Birdy starts out running slowly, but there is a gradual crescendo that gives the fight some real punch. Beginning at 0:27 into the clip I especially love the background animation and interesting angles as Birdy tears through the mecha. The way the camera moves and captures the ceiling and wall animation when Birdy leaps at her foes is spectacular.
