Not boringly slow really, just very shallow plotwise.
Jeff Jue
If you like lots of action, intelligence, suspense, science fiction, intrigue, and great characters then you will definately want to check this series out.

Despite its strange name and the initial fluffiness of the first few episodes, Kiddy Grade is a show worth taking a look at. While, like most Gonzo shows (e.g., Vandread, Full Metal Panic), it is nothing revolutionary, it is well-executed, with generally high quality animation and wonderful character designs. For those watching the English dub, a great performance by the actress for the heroine, Eclair, really carries the show through these first episodes.
The setting is simple enough: two young elite agents try to maintain order in a galactic federation. There is a lot of silliness in these first episodes--Eclair likes to wear disguises, and the camera seems enamored of her underwear as she's fighting; her partner is the seemingly-demure Lumiere, but she doesn't wear much in the way of clothes either. This silliness is part of the show, but there's something deeper here, and the payoff is worth some of the problems in the setup.
This first disc, and to some extent the next, are really an investment in something better. Fortunately, Eclair is really a likeable heroine, and carries Kiddy Grade through a bit of fumbling in these first episodes. If you want an immediate payoff, Kiddy Grade is not going to give it to you, but if you can enjoy a bit of fluff to start with the knowledge that it becomes much more than fluff, Kiddy Grade is worth getting into.

For this first DVD, you will just have to sit back and enjoy the battles, humor, and fan service. The plot does not pick up until the next disk. But dont dismiss this anime because of its slow start!!!! I PROMISE you that it will totally blow you away as you get into it! Just when you think there will never be a plot, it hits you in the face. AND IT IS GREAT! Eclair and her partner and their friends make this anime incredible both for its action and its artwork. I def reccomend it!
***just wanted to edit this to say that I originally thought this release was 7 disks of 4 eps or so...since then I have found this disk only has 3 eps on it. So, basically I have to correct myself and say that the plot will pick up on the 3rd disk. But dont be discouraged!! Its awesome, plus, the eps in the beginning introduce characters and situations that will become very important at the end!

I'm just in the beginning stages of watching Kiddy Grade. I've only seen up to episode 6 and I'm VERY pleased with it. It mixes a "Charlie's Angels" mentality with an outer space theme. Many people have said that they didn't really care for the show all that much until episode 8. I'm guessing 1-7 are just individual episodes and the main storyline kicks in at 8. Regardless, I'm having a blast watching it! The English voice acting really brings home the whole essence and feel of the show. It's serious but it doesn't take itself seriously. The whole show at this point is very "tongue-in-cheek" and the English voice actors pulled off the amazing task of doing a better job than their Japanese predecessors. If you don't speak or understand Japanese, you'll probably have a VERY hard time picking up on sarcasm and voice inflections in order to understand if something is humorous or not. Thank goodness the English version hits a home run with this part.
The animation is stellar. It is all done digitally by one of the world's top animation studios - Gonzo - located in Japan. There is a seamless blend of regular animated effects and CG effects. All of the music is orchestrated and sounds just spectacular. It's cinematic and pulls you right into the show. It's very James Bond-ish with a little bit of the grandeur of John Williams (Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Jaws, & Jurassic Park).
All in all, it's a fantastic show and almost everyone will like it. I made my friends sit down and watch it. Even though they hate Anime like it killed their family, they were begging me to try to find the next episodes because they couldn't wait.

Episodes one through three don't seem to be related at all, however, the story and the characters are engaging. The story sounds simple enough, a group or organization called the GOTT is used to combat and eliminate all terroristic threats to world peace. The two members in which the story mainly revolves around are both Eclair and Lumiere. Eclair is a hands-on-combat-fighter, whereas Lumiere uses her technological powers to take complete control over any type of machinery. Yes, there is fan service for something that is titled "Kiddy Grade," however the artwork rivals that of Full Metal Alchemist (another great anime). The humor, the action, and the story-telling promises us a great series far into the near future. I would highly recommend giving this product a shot!

Kiddy Grade is an anime with epic amibitions and has space opera written all over it. If you like lots of action, intelligence, suspense, science fiction, intrigue, and great characters then you will definately want to check this series out.

In the science fiction world of Kiddy Grade the planets of the galaxy have joined together into the Global Union. To mediate between these disparate cultures and worlds, an organization called G.O.T.T. (Galactic Organization of Trade and Tariffs) is formed at the same time. While it mostly is involved in economic disputes it also has ES members who carry out covert missions of all types, not all of which would be considered legal. The two main characters of Kiddy Grade are the ES members Eclair and Lumiere. Yes, let me just warn you, this series has goofy names that even Charles Dickens wouldn't come up with.

Eclair and Lumiere are not just normal ladies. All ES memebers have special abilities, what we in America would call super-powers. Eclair has superstrength and is close to invulnerable to most weapons but in terms of morality, she's a sixteen year old. I don't think she recognizes evil as such and sees her job as a type of adventure, as evidenced when she boards a hostile ship and bashes down the door to the bridge and

says she's just delivering pizza. She can also use her tube of lipstick which can also double as a whiplike energy weapon.

Lumiere, on the other hand is the picture of elegance and looks like an elementary age girl but behind that appearance she has the power to control machines with her thoughts. She can also hack into computers with just her mind and take them over. It comes in handy when you're surrounded by an enemy fleet and she hacks into their computers and makes them destroy each other.
