Tch....i don't know about you guys but KG 1 wasn't the most interesting anime for me.

Now with KG 2, Keiji Gotou (His initials are KG too...shocku!) returns to the helm for what can be classified as, loli+sci-fi+shounen-tournament-anime. The pilot is out complete with some pantsu shots and fanservice.

Anyone waiting for this with bated breath? sleep.gif

Not with bated breath, but curiosity. First season was pretty self-contained. The fact that at least the Eclair/Lumiere pair were immortal avatars was an obvious open door to another season ... but they'd better have a story to tell.

[edit] After some digging-up, I found this blog with a truckload of screen-caps. Chibi-Eclair looks cute as buttons. happy.gif

Yeah...those various forms of Eclaire and Lumierre were shown in some flashbacks during KG1. I actually have a biggggg PNG file somewhere that shows every single form and incarnation of Eclaire and Lumierre from before KG1 right up to the end of it. The inverse loli roles were a few of the incarnations.

If i could only find it.

EDIT: Found....28 megs image... blink.gif

Kiddy Grade has always been, and continues to be with the sequel, a bad excuse to show off pretty character designs.

Maybe it's just me but that image won't display because "it contains errors".

Regarding KG2, I'm looking forward to it. I enjoyed the first one.

Gotoh fans like Gotoh for what he does best, and Kiddy Grade did this quite well, along with a decent plotline and some fun action. If he sticks to his formula I'm sure I'll get some slight enjoyment from KGII. Gotoh should probably stick to character designs though and leave the directing to others. Although I did really enjoy Uta Kata.

I can sort of picture Gotoh in my mind pitching the plot to the broadcasters using a set of bishoujo figurines and by making "Pew pew pew! Bang! Woooosh!" noises.

I said what I think of KG in a previous so, heh, I'm definitely buying the PV of KG2.
Do not care at all about not being able to enjoy KG... though I admit it's all about Eclair so if you let Lumiere or anyone else bother you or if you don't like Eclair, you cannot really enjoy KG.

Or we just didn't like the show cause the story and plot sucked and the characters were mediocre as can be?

Hmmm...try changing the extension to .PNG cause it was png, but the image site changed it to .JPG.

I loved Kiddy Grade, and I'm looking forward to the sequel series.
The character designs for Ecclair and Lumiere were great. Though Tweedledum and Tweedle Dee and Alv and Diverger were my favorite characters.

It was an anime i liked enough that i bought the whole series disk by disk. I don't know if the sequel will be any good. Sequels rarely are.

Here's hoping for the best

For reference, there has been at least one previous thread here on the sequel.

I'm not about to download a 28mb png, so I assume that's a scan of the timeline from Kiddy Grade Conclusion?

Its a scan of the bookmark set actually. Each bookmark features 2 characters from GOTT. Most of them are the various incarnations of Eclaire and Lumiere.

Ah.. the bookmarks. They are a sore point since my volume 12 had one missing and, since they were already hard to come by at that point, I had no way to replace it (I've done so since by dint of buying another complete set...... which was also the only way to get the send-away extras. If anyone wants a set of the LE DVDs with one missing bookmark you know where to knock..)
