What little hope we still had for that Kiddy Grade 2 sequel (and in particular more of Lumiere's exquisite loliness) was shattered to pieces a few days ago, when a spin-off anime was announced to continue the franchise. Titled Kiddy Girl-and, or Kiddy Grand (or even Kiddy Garland as some might prefer calling it), this new anime will leap two centuries further into the future, to the Star Century year 0379.



Sadly, the classic yuri'esque couple formed by Lumiere and Eclair will be replaced by two new characters: the playful Asukuru and the more serious Ku Fiyu, who are training to become members of ES - the finest secret agents with special abilities of the galactic government GTO. The story is being created by gimik (one of the original production companies), and the animation work is being moved from Asread (who was supposed to do the now-abandoned KG2 sequel) to Satelight.

Further anime staff details can be found on ANN, and it should be noted that a manga adaptation called Kiddy Girl-and Pure is also being prepared. The manga will begin on March 26 in the CompAce magazine, and the anime... *shrug*... who knows? All we have for now is a purely symbolic official website.

I really hope the story of this "Kiddy Grand" isn't bad. I know the ending of the first was a little over the top, personal opinion. But I love the show and I hope it keeps true the the shoujo ai feelings of the first. And hopefully there are some, at least, cameo's of previous ES members.

I loved Eclair myself. I suppose I will watch the new series but it better be good since they are removing Eclair and Lumiere. I will miss Mercredi and Eclipse also. I cannot see how they can still be there and have no Eclair or Lumiere. I also even liked Dvergr at the end.
