5.0 out of 5 stars ^_^ 8 May 2005
Format:DVD
Kiddy Grade is not very well known but it should be. Those who like Gunsmith cats and Charlies Angels should take a look at this DVD. Oh and anime fans as well. There are no over the top 'anime faces' plenty of action and great characters all set in space. So far each epsiode focuses on a different mission that the two main characters Eclair and lumiere have to deal with. However, under all the hype and glamour...something isn't quite right...there is something out of place. As the last epsiode on this dvd will tell you, there is something more disturbing going on under the skin.
Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yes - Funimation finally decided to come to its senses 5 Aug 2006
By Michael Sinatra - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Yes, it's actually happened. After releasing Kiddy Grade in 8 individual DVDs, and later halved in 4 "File Collections", Funimation has finally done the sensible thing in the Anime industry: released a box set for a series it has flaunted for what seems like years. But of course, this is expected from Funimation, which milks it's DVD releases for every dollar it can earn - releasing the minimal episodes per volume.

As fans already know, "Kiddy Grade" is the story of G.O.T.T. agents Eclair and Lumiere as they try and preserve order sometime in the distant future, where mankind has formed the "Galactic Union" in order to avoid interstellar wars. But as the two young women soon realize, the universe is a big place - and they may just be another drop in the bucket - or are they?

While "Kiddy Grade" presents an enveloping and philosophical storyline, the overall quality is mediocre. The plot itself may not make sense to some viewers, and is very hard to follow. Also be advised this series relies heavily on Fan-Service to keep viewers hooked - not that it's horrific, but it's there. And with good reason - character design and series art are fabulous.

What may surprise most is the quality of the English Dub. Funimation regulars and Voice Acting vets Colleen Clinkenbeard (Riza Hawkeye, "Fullmetal Alchemist") and Monica Rial (Kirika, "Noir") provide the voices for Eclair and Lumiere, and do a fairly good job in outclassing their Japanese counterparts. "Kiddy Grade" also features impressive performances from other recognizable Funimation voice talents such as Laura Bailey (Lust, "Fullmetal Alchemist"), Dameon Clarke (Scar, "Fullmetal Alchemist"), and Alison Retzloff (Conan, "Case Closed").

To summarize, if you're looking for a series that's great to watch (look at), this is a sound investment. If you're looking for a remake of "Neon Genesis Evangelion" or "Ghost in the Shell", you won't find it here.

5.0 out of 5 stars a very strange experience but a good one 13 Sep 2004
By John Moody - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Ok ive just watched this volume on dvd and can say its just as good as vol 5 was and picks up right after it.

The previous rewiew on the amazon site, i just read is a bit unfair i think although i do agree with his comments about the first episode , you get the sense that its set in the past but your really not sure.

Although having watched the series theres been alot of bits in the series like this but they ussally get resolved a bit later on.

The ending on this volume is very confusing , but i think its also fairly obvious whats going on with the clones, although the ending is a bit of a shock but a intresting good one.

i cant wait for the next volume, the story in kiddy grade has now really picked up compared to say the first volume which had a bit of a different feel to it.

If you want to see a good anime , with alot of charm and basicly a fun ride then get kiddy grade.

I took a chance on this series, not knowing much about it when it started and so far it seems to have paid off.

i gave it 5 stars but i guess its really up to personal preference how much you like this series , but its certainly alot better than your average anime show.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Series 12 July 2007
By Charles Stuckey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I picked this up "sight unseen" and am glad I did. It was very well done and had a good storyline. It jumps from present to past in an extended "flashback" that some might find confusing if they're not following closely. It has aspects of old and new styles of anime that blend well to make an entertaining and amusing story that still can be thought-provoking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better then I expected 4 Aug 2007
By Brian - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Kiddy Grade has a lot of action it takes place in the future it is about two girls Eclair and Lumiere who work for an organization called G.O.T.T. The organization is ment to keep the peace with the galaxy. They have cybernetic enhancements which give them cool abilities. Eclair the brunette has an ability called "Power" with gives her super speed and strength. Lumiere the blue haired girl has an ability called "Puppet" which gives her controll over electronics such as robots,ships,guns, etc. all I'll say is that they, Well mostly Eclair has a some secrets and a dark past. So if your looking for something new it's worth the buy plus it comes with these collectible cards.

5.0 out of 5 stars WHO AM I? 8 Aug 2004
By Sesho - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The plot of Kiddy Grade continues to thicken. After a near-death experience in Volume 3, Eclair is beginning to have visions of her past lives. While it has yet to be explained, the best I can clue into is that ES members have long histories, and are virtually immortal, having their memories erased in order not to be limited by their pasts. As Lumiere has visions of wiping out entire planets, she is sent on a mission with Lumiere to aid two fellow ES members stuck in a dangerous situation.

Episode 11 concerns the planet Aure, a world which has been artificially cultivated to be a close replica of Earth. It's the number one vacationing spot in the universe. So it should be a paradise, shouldn't it? Wrong! It is run by the Nouvlesse, an business organization sorta like a legalized mafia that holds a great percentage of the capital of the universe. It has imposed a virtual enslavement of the native population, seeing them as less than human. As expected, the workers want better conditions and demand basic human rights and threaten to start a revolution. Their rulers call in G.O.T.T to destroy this "economic terrorism". Eclair MUST follow her orders, or does she?

In the last episode on the dvd, Eclair, Lumiere, and the reluctant auditor Armblast, are forced to seek a hiding place after the two girls disobey direct orders. They are thrown out of G.O.T.T and are to be hunted down and captured, dead or alive. It's still unknown who of their former allies will now become their enemies.

Kiddy Grade still continues to please with its orchestral soundtrack and epic storylines, even though some of the plot is enigmatic at times. You get a feeling of being overwhelemed by the world of this excellent series. It has a lot of depth and the feeling of past lives just adds to the layering. You really have to watch it many times to catch everything and get full enjoyment.
