Kiddy Grade is an anime series produced by GONZO and published by Bandai Visual that first aired in 2002. The series is set in a distant future where humanity has established several colonies throughout the galaxy. The Galactic Union, an organization formed by the colonies to regulate their relationship, maintains order through a special police force called the GOTT (Galactic Organization of Trade and Tariffs).

The series follows the adventures of two GOTT agents, Éclair and Lumière, as they complete various missions throughout the galaxy. Éclair is a powerful fighter with a no-nonsense attitude, while Lumière is a genius hacker with a playful demeanor. Together, they make a formidable team, each complementing the other's unique talents.

The show is known for its stunning visuals, which include intricate character designs and detailed backgrounds. The animation is fluid and consistently high-quality, even during action scenes. The series also boasts an impressive soundtrack, featuring a blend of orchestral and electronic music that enhances the show's already immersive atmosphere.

The overarching plot of Kiddy Grade revolves around the GOTT's investigation of a mysterious organization known as the Nouvlesse. The Nouvlesse are a group of immensely powerful individuals who hold great influence throughout the galaxy. The exact nature of their agenda is unknown, but their actions suggest that they are not working towards the greater good.

The series is broken up into two distinct parts, each with its own unique story arc. The first part, which consists of the first eight episodes, focuses on Éclair and Lumière's early adventures as GOTT agents. They investigate various crimes throughout the galaxy, including a plot by a rogue AI to destroy a planet and a plot by an underground organization to smuggle illegal weaponry.

The second part of the series, which spans the remaining 13 episodes, sees the plot take a much darker turn. Éclair and Lumière are assigned to investigate the Nouvlesse and uncover their true intentions. Along the way, they are forced to confront their own pasts and deal with the consequences of their actions.

The show's characters are one of its major strengths. Éclair and Lumière are well-developed protagonists, each with their own unique motivations and flaws. The supporting cast is equally colorful, with each character having their own distinct personality and backstory.

The show also features a significant amount of action, with multiple fight scenes in each episode. The fight scenes are well-animated and engaging, often featuring creative use of each character's abilities. However, the show does not rely solely on action to move the plot forward. The series also deals with complex themes such as identity, memory, and the consequences of one's actions.

Overall, Kiddy Grade is a well-made and engaging anime series with a compelling plot, well-developed characters, and beautiful animation. It is a must-watch for fans of science fiction and action-oriented anime.

Kiddy Grade is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (24 episodes). The series first aired on October 8, 2002.
