Kiddy Grade (2002): First Thoughts

Kiddy Grade is a show that I've been dithering about whether or not to get it for years.

On the one hand: dreadful levels of fan service. On the other: an extremely well done trailer that hinted at a deep, and quite interesting story.

I finally broke down and bought a cheap set as part of a larger order.

The early episodes are dreadful in terms of the fan service, but there have been just enough hints to keep me going. The individual episodes are also entertaining enough in a light action sort of a way.

Then you get to episodes 10/11 and everything changes.

I haven't watched past there yet but suddenly this is a story with real potential, and a lead character that is more than an excuse for fan service.

Much more.

It will be interesting to see if the rest lives up to the standard that has just been set.
