Kiddy GiRL-AND (キディ・ガーランド, Kidi Gārando) is a 2009 sequel to the science fiction anime series Kiddy Grade, created by gímik and Satelight and directed by Keiji Gotoh. The manga adaptation Kiddy Girl-and Pure (キディ・ガーランド ぴゅあ, Kidi Gārando Pyua), illustrated by Yukari Higa, ran in Comp Ace and was released as two collected volumes.

Plot[edit]

Twenty-five years after Éclair and Lumière, (from the flagship Kiddy Grade series), rescued the galaxy from destruction's doorstep, the GTO (Galactic Trade Organization), created after the defeat of the GOTT (Galactic Organization of Trade and Tariffs), act on behalf of universal peace by combating criminal activity. Their special ES division mirrored after the GOTT's ES (Encounter of Shadow-work) force, now includes publicly acknowledged ES member candidates. The series follows three such trainees, Ascoeur, Q-feuille, and Di-air as they work their way to ES membership.

Anime[edit]

In October 2006 news of a Kiddy Grade sequel was announced, under the working title of Kiddy Grade 2 (キディ・グレイ) (K-G.2), to be animated by asread (Shuffle! anime).[1] A DVD containing a 7-minute preview of the new series was released on 2007-05-25 but nothing further was heard until, on February 26, 2009 it was re-announced[2] under the new title Kiddy Girl-and (キディ・ガーランド, Kidi Gārando) along with news of a new manga adaptation, Kiddy Girl-and Pure (キディ・ガーランド ぴゅあ, Kidi Gārando Pyua).

The anime aired from autumn of 2009 until spring of 2010,[3] and was produced by studio Satelight, based on a story by gímik. Set 50 years after the original series, Kiddy Girl-and introduced two new female protagonists, Ascœur (アスクール, Asukūru)[4] and Q-feuille (ク・フィーユ, Ku Fīyu).[5] The manga version, with story by Hidefumi Kimura and art by Yukari Higa (Shina Dark), is being serialized in the Comp Ace magazine, starting from March 26, 2009.[6]

Funimation announced during their Otakon 2017 panel that they have licensed the anime for a North American release.[7]
