Kiddy Grade Ignition: Memories of (somewhat) old classic

While I was expecting something new, it's merely a slim version of original Kiddy Grade. It skipped all the parts that is irrelevant to the main plot (mostly the episodes that introduces supporting characters).

While somewhat disappointed, it is still nice to see the original series plot line without interference of filler episodes. However, the first movie is only the first part of the series. To see the complete story, you'll have to wait for the rest of the movie to come out.

Kiddy Grade is one of my all time favorite animes. It combines action, mystery, drama, and heart touching moments into a heart pounding (well, maybe not quite) and tear dropping series. I think it is a product from GONZO at its peak (especially I haven't been very impressed with GONZO's work lately).

This series of movies, supposedly are the precursors of the new series Kiddy Grade 2.

The second movie DVD (Maelstrom) will be out in a matter of days :)
(not seen a release date for the third movie yet, but I imagine it will be late November sometime)

That's nice to know. Have they announced when Kiddy Grade 2 is coming out yet?
