though lacking the interstellar theme, the layers of deception, intrigue, and betrayal feel very much the same. The deepest mystery is the search for one's past.

TheBurningCrow TheBurningCrow says...

The idea behind Noir and Kiddy Grade and the way each episode rolls out is REALLY quite the same. You have 2 girls who are hired assassins in Noir, and basically in Kiddy Grade you have the same thing, but they actually do it as a job. Both pairs in the series also have very unique and tuned abilities, allowing them to do incredible things, not to mention the main characters are 'hot girls' in each one.

At the beginning, Kiddy Grade does not seem to have any similarities with Noir except for the action and the team pairs. Although the two animes' settings are almost completely different, the mood and tone of both the shows feels similar. If one recalls the latter part of Kiddy Grade, one can expect the same drive in Noir. Action, betrayals, secrets, and plot twists are prominent in both series, and both Noir and Kiddy Grade's plot accelerates to one great and final climax.

freakzilla freakzilla says...

Kiddy Grade and Noir definitely feel alike, with the team pairing and some good plot twists during the action, you can't see one without having seen the other.

Roxas Roxas says...

Both shows are action-packed shows that are highly centered around a chracter's search for the past. Noir is a bit darker than Kiddy Grade, but otherwise both are pretty similar. Both are well-paced and well-animated. If you liked one, you'd probably like the other as well.

Galadriel Galadriel says...

Noir and Kiddy Grade are similar in many aspects, both animes focuse on revealing the past of one of the main protagonists, both animes feature a unique type of protagonists pairing and receiving missions and also fulfills them and also both feature similar animation style. Even though, Noir is abit more dark than Kiddy Grade, and it doesn't feature sci-fi/futuristic aspects nor Fan Service aspects in what i mentioned above, both of them seem to be very much alike. If you like one of this two shows, be sure to check the other one as well.

Kiddy Grade and Vandread both have alarmingly similar aspects: a healthy mix of ecchi, a good plot, plentiful humor and odd situations, all of which are compelling and keep your attention.

CheesyP18 CheesyP18 says...

Vandread and Kiddy Grade are virtually in the same genres. Theres action, ecchi, sci-fi, and mecha. The similarities are obviously seen between Vandread and the first part of Kiddy Grade. Comedy and fanservice are prominent, although there isn't as much fanservice in Vandread. Both have wonderful plots, and ask questions that have deeper meanings. A few of the differences are that Vandread places a larger role on sci-fi, where in Kiddy Grade, the sci-fi is just a backdrop. Also Vandread holds its comedy throughout the series where Kiddy Grade almost totally drops its comedy to trade in for a much more serious and dramatic plot.

TheBurningCrow TheBurningCrow says...

Aside from all the big boobs in both of these series, you will like the fairly good action and the overall plot. Kiddy Grade doesn't really have much of a plot until the end, and even then it's still weak compared to Vandread. I will say that the style and feeling of both series is quite the same, although Vandread has humor and Kiddy Grade really doesn't.

tetra tetra says...

Well... if you like the combination of fanservice, space-theme and adventure, but still want a nice storyline and somewhat likeable characters then there are few anime other than Kiddy Grade and Vandread to watch.

Much like Najic Blitz Tactics, though lacking the James Bond existence for a Big O one, enjoyable non-stop action with blatant sexuality.

FINSahaqiel FINSahaqiel says...

If you enjoyed camera angles and other ecchi stuff in Kiddy Grade.

TheBurningCrow TheBurningCrow says...

As far as blatent panty shots and armed girl duo's saving the day as "agents" of some organization, I think these 2 series are a good fit for eachother. Kiddy Grade is a bit more serious and involved, so if you just want some good panty shots check out something more like Najica.

Galadriel Galadriel says...

both Kiddy Grade and Agent Aika focuses on agents of some organizations who fight against evil. While Agent Aika exceeds in terms of nudity and panty shots, Kiddy Grade is abit more serious though it doesnt lack Fan Service as well. So if you like one for sure you will enjoy the other one as well.

Though Kiddy Grade wins in the ecchi department, it and ROD TV share many things in common: they each have a compelling story that becomes more interesting as time goes on, similar pacing, and plenty of character development (in addition to an overall campy feel). With the exception of the ecchi, I think these two are a good fit.

Cetonis Cetonis says...

Kiddy Grade and Read or Die TV each tell the story of a group of loyal fighters whose worlds get turned upside down. Both Eclair/Lumiere and the Paper Sisters are then forced to find their way through the ensuing chaos, plots, and revelations about their pasts to fight against their newfound enemies. These two series are a good deal alike - if you enjoyed one, certainly take a look at the other.

MaraRuizu MaraRuizu says...

Both begin with the same style of comedy and supernatural action elements, which changes midway through the series as the main characters' lives are turned upside-down in chaos-filled events and conspiracies. If you like one you should check out the other.

Grach Grach says...

Both series tend to be campy comedies with superpowered mains who go about doing various odd tasks, which helps set up the immense worldbuilding that eventually gives way to conspiracy, and other darker themes. Kiddy Grade is much more ecchi in comparison, however.

If you liked one, you are sure to like the other!

Stellvia definitely has less (aka no) fanservice, and has a more lighthearted plot all the way through; but both it and Kiddy Grade have a fantastic mix of serious and "fun"/character development moments. In addition, the musical soundtracks REALLY reminded me of each other. This is important to me, because I rarely am drawn to anime OSTs, but both Stellvia and KG's really stood out.

TheBurningCrow TheBurningCrow says...

The style, atmosphere and animation of both Stellvia and Kiddy Grade is VERY close. The "fresh" feeling you get when watching each episode is also very similar. Also, considering they are out in space and whatnot makes them close too. If you liked one, you would probably like the other, despite popular belief that KG sucks (I didn't think so).

freakzilla freakzilla says...

Both Stellvia and Kiddy Grade have a strong plot with the same environmental settings: space. It somewhat gave me the same feeling.
