Hyper Speed GranDoll (超光速グランドール Chō Kōsoku Gurandōru) is an anime OVA about a high school girl who discovers that she is really part of a royal lineage of aliens from a distant planet. The anime was released in the United States by Central Park Media.
The game's plot closely follows the OVA's storyline, except for a few minor differences. Unlike the anime where Hikaru only fights in her standard armor, in the game she gets multiple different styles of armor upgrades after defeating a boss, similar to Megaman ZX's Bio Metal System.
There are 3 episodes:
- An Eventful Double Date
- A Heroic Transfer Student
- Give Me Courage
- Ending theme
- "Sotto Chikau Shunkan Toki" by Junko Iwao
Bamboo Dong of Anime News Network described Hyper Speed GranDoll as being very predictable, comparing it to a "color by numbers" book. However, said that it was still entertaining enough to warrant a rental. Chris Beveridge of Mania.com expressed similar sentiments, calling the anime "fun" but also "by the numbers".
