Well, well, well...
Looks like a date for the Pilot DVD is out! (source).

Being a big fan of Eclair, I can say I'm pretty looking forward to that new series.

Nice. KG's opening song is one of my all-time favourite. Is the singer returning for this series?

アニメ]TVA「エル・カザド」2007年4月より放送開始予定。

Doesn't the Devils Tounge above say something about an Airdate of April 2007? Does that mean a new Tv series or is this just an OVA release? KG was definitely a guilty pleasure of mine, so I welcome anymore thats to come.

I know, I know, they sure look like Keiji Gotoh circular-eye designs, but the actual character designer is Megumi Kadonosono (she also did Uta-Kata and they Rayearth OAV). Gotoh directed.

I think Kadonosono is married to Keiji Gotoh?

Note the acronym "TVA" in there, which stands for TV animation.

From what I am reading, the characters will not be Lumi and Eclair, but 'Asukuuru' and 'Kufiiyu'

She must be because I know Ive seen Gotoh credited somewhere for Uta Kata.

Sure, but considering Eclair's eternal life (sorta), we can expect cameo or perhaps even some major role!

Both Kiddy Grade and Uta Kata are gímik series, and gímik is made up of Gotoh, Megumi and Hidefumi Kimura (and I sometimes wonder.. if Gotoh and Meg are indeed married... where does Kim fit in?). The only other gímik project is the Gemini Knives novels, although all three are currently working together on Gigantic Formula.

All I ask is why the hell are they even making more Kiddy Grade? WHY?!

Dear Keiji Gotoh:

STOP DIRECTING ANIME. YOU CAN'T!

Go back to making your goofy yet somewhat cute character designs.

Thank you

He still is. AND directing tongue.gif . As for the news, I can't say I'm that enthusiastic. Kiddy Grade was something I was really, really excited about when I saw it in Newtype. Then I saw the series. Started crappy, had a very good middle half, then went back to sucking. If Keiji has learned his lesson, then there may be hope. At least the girls will be cute wink.gif .

Kiddy Grade was boring with very pretty character designs. I don't think I ever finished the series, since I was so incredibly bored of it at the time. Someone needs to recycle those character designs into a show that has some substance to it. Or some semblance of entertainment.

>STOP DIRECTING ANIME. YOU CAN'T!

I think he could create a decent series, if he did a different style of plot than KG and Uta-Kata. For me, at least.

I might be one of the few people who thinks his character designs are meh at best, never liked the glossy vinyl skin look they had, even back in Nadesico and Sorcerer Hunters, but at least they shows were actually good, well SH was okay, but still a hell of a lot better than Kiddy Grade or Gatekeepers....

Yeah Gatekeepers sucked, Kiddie Grade was a guilty pleasure, but I thought Uta Kata was pretty damn good. I loved the slow pacing of the show, although I suppose the writing could have been a tab better at times.

I'm going to chime in on not finding his character designs all that hot to begin with as well.

And yeah, Kiddy Grade sure as hell doesn't deserve a second season, gah.

Didn't Gotoh work on Nadesico? Because much as I enjoyed Kiddy Grade I'd much rather have a Nadesico 2 (or even a Nadesico The Mission 2) and am still pissed off that it was cancelled in the planning stages (A Gunbuster 2 would be good too)

Gotoh was the Nadesico character designer, so basically Ruri is his.

What I find amusing is that, despite the similarity between Ruri and Shuffle!'s Primula, Gotoh (like me) seems to prefer Asa.
