In the future, Tokyo has fallen victim to syndicates, trigger-happy people who run rampant and other groups who don't like to follow the rules. In response, an organization called RAPT has been created, whose goal is to maintain their definition of "peace". In the underground, however, science involving humans and powerful mechanics is progressing at a steady phase, but for what purpose? Meet our four angels who know how to kick butt and raise hell whenever it's needed. Their motto? Shoot first, talk later. Their mission? To make the seemingly impossible possible, of course...
Both Kiddy Grade and Burst Angel feature strong feminine characters working in groups under organizations. Like Kiddy Grade, Burst Angel also features the theme of underlying treachery within an organization that is intended to be helping people. The amount of fighting action is also similar, as well as the relationships between the characters. Overall, both of these anime have similar themes, characters, and ending results.
Well, both series contain action, cool outfits and cute chicks as main heroines. In my opinion Kiddy Grade is a bit better than Burst Angel because of it's plot. But on second thought both series are equally watchable. The main similiarity are the badass chicks knowing everything, from hand to hand fighting, up to controlling jackass Mobile Suits aka "Gunndams" ^^.
Both shows feature strong female protagonists working in secret organizations in groups (or pairs in Kiddy Grade's case). Both shows feature a shoujo-ai sub-plot and they are both defined by its sci-fi aspect. Both feature some mecha battles (which are kinda rare in Kiddy Grade but they do exist) and both shows deal with conspiracies within their organizations. If you liked Kiddy Grade you will definitely enjoy watching Burst Angel!
Gonzo does it again with this action-packed mecha comedy. She's an ordinary high school girl. He's a counterterror agent assigned to protect her from those who would steal the information locked in her mind. OK, so she's not so normal after all. Armored Slave battles and lovers' spats abound as Sousuke and his comrades try to track down the mysterious Gauln before it's too late.
Especially the 2nd half of Full Metal Panic is recommended if you like Kiddy Grade and want to watch something else (or the other way around). Since at that point, the action and comedy are at the same lev3l. Full Metal Panic is somewhat more hilareous than Kiddy Grade and has a romance aspect instead of a drama aspect. So if you like some more comedy and more mecha, check out Full metal Panic. If you like space and a heavier drama, go for Kiddy Grade
The main female protagonists in Kiddy Grade and FMP are similar and strong in character. The characters have a level of reality about them, and the stories are heavily influenced by the sci-fi genre.
When Akito Tenkawa went looking for answers about his parents' deaths, he had no idea that he'd be indoctrinated into the spaceship Nadesico not only as a cook, but also as a mecha pilot – a job he wants nothing to do with! Alongside his childhood friend Yurika, stoic Ruri, otaku Gai and other misfit crewmates, Akito and the Nadesico crew find themselves in the middle of a brutal war against both the dreaded Jovian Lizards, and the military itself, who wants the civilian ship under their control...
If you like Kiddy Grade, You might like Nadesico. The main difference is that nadesico kinda solely focusses on the space, mecha and spaceships aspect, while there is a little romantic story behind it. Kiddy Grade on the other hand has alot heavier drama spect and no romantic story at all.
Kiddy Grade is very similar to MSN and vice versa. The lead females have a strong personality and a lot of character. The series have close ties to the sci-fi genre; much of the technology is explained in a realistic manner (as realistic as it could possibly be).
In the world of Daikuuriku, all children are born female; but once they become a young adult, they may choose which sex they will become. In this world which is at war with itself, the women of Simalacrum find themselves charged with the task of piloting the ancient machines known as Simoun in hopes of turning the tide of war. Though originally simple ceremonial machines, the most gifted of pilots can turn the glowing "ri maajon" of their rituals onto their enemies and obliterate them from the skies using these Simoun. However, it takes a special bond between two highly gifted girls to successfully pilot a Simoun. With the toll of blood and pain that these previously innocent girls are taking, how many will be able to carry on, even knowing that they are the only real thing standing between freedom and subjugation of their land?
If you like Simoun, you will probably also like Kiddy Grade and vice versa. The worlds are very different, as well as the story, so that's not why I recommend these with each other. Why I recommend them is that the characters are very similar, and throughout the story they grow and mature in very similar manners. Both stories deal with a primarily female cast which has a wide range of personalities. Their growth is not shallow, and that makes both series worth watching.
Aside from being science fiction shows with fantasy elements, the main thing these two have in common is the casts consist of a majority of girls, with very different personalities. Both contain well written, believable character development, which makes either one a good recommendation for the other.
Furthermore, have serious messages about religion and war (Simoun) / opression and the responsibility of the ones "just taking orders" (Kiddy Grade).
It is the year 2029, and as many rush to embrace the changes that cybernetic technology bring to mankind, the seedier side of humanity is even quicker to take advantage of it. This series follows Public Peace Section 9, a government organization that plays behind the scenes to stop the worst of these criminals. Join Major Motoko Kusanagi and her team as they take you through an incredibly vivid world filled with plots of such depth and intrigue as is seldom seen.
There are two main things you'll find in both Ghost in the Shell: SAC and Kiddy Grade. The first is who the main characters are up against and how it's not as simple as they originally thought. The second connection is the role of the robots and their relationship to the main characters, in both cases the robots become far more than just tools.
If you liked Kiddy Grade your gonna love GitS
It follows along similar lines in the whole 'searching for answers', but feels 'more real'. Don't let the CGI starting fool you this is real anime at it's best.
The Tachikomas steal the show, and beat Donnerschlag hands dow!
