Kiddy Girl And...What?

Kiddy Grade gets a spinoff with a weirdass name.

Are there any hardcore Kiddy Grade fans out there? I've never heard of one (which is not to say I disliked the show, just that I've never known anyone super into it)...but there must be a few, because a spinoff to Gonzo's 2002 fanservicey sci-fi adventure has been announced. Hopefully it'll actually happen, unlike the announced 2006 sequel...Anime production will be by Satelight and gimik, with Hidefumi Kimura acting as series director.


The show is titled Kiddy Girl-And, although the katakana (キディーガーランド) kind of reads better as Kiddy Garland. So I think I'm going to call it Kiddy Garland, which is a way less silly name. I mean, I hate repeating my headline and all, but...and what? And isn't “kiddy girl” kind of weird and partially redundant?


Are you with me on this, guys?

This is the sequel that was announce wait back, there was even a small trailer, then it die out. there was no news for a good 4 to 5 years. It it really hard to a super fan went  there just one series. It entertaining but there better stuff out there. The purple hair girl used chocolate has a weapon. As the pink hair girl, it the first time i see her. That all i really know, since I edit most of the stuff here.

If the character designs are by Megumi Kadonosono I'll watch the first episode for sure. I did like Kiddy Grade... but the thing I liked the most was the character designs. ^_^; (The rest I found just OK...)

You know, you could read it as "Kiddy Grand"...

Though...that really doesn't make any more sense than the others... Who the heck cares about Kiddy Grade anyway?

"Kiddy Grand" would be 「キディ・グランド」 
Kiddy Girl-land is closer, although you would expect that to be 「キディ・ガールランド」
Regardless, the Engrish is part of the logo and the logo is provisional so it's not something set in concrete yet.
