THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Q-Feuille's eyes when she saw the glowing red lights was just unexpected^^ I thought she was the brave one and it's funny to see her screaming like that, all the sudden the atmosphere becomes horror style :D Ascoeur's speed is amazing when she's fighting the opponent, i guess Dia has a special ability after all :D

I agree with ShanaFlame about Q-Feuille being not as brave as it looked. She was afraid of ghosts and spirits by the looks of her face. I have to admit that Dia is adorable but the problem is her constant kissing to power up it is cute but reminds me of what they call yuri/lesbo stuff. Not in a bad way but cute just gets a little annoying because it does not fit in the Kiddy Grade setup that this was supposed to be like. GOTT/GTO...why was it abandoned or what happened is not clear to me also. The fight was great with fast teleportation of Ascoeur/bomb setup;blow up of Q-feuille so was monster that is genetic/maybe nanomachine transformed into other things. Fear effect worked on me a few times in the beginning of the episode but will probably not a second time seeing this. A bit sad to see some ES members that died got some memories of first season, also the hall and some parts of the building. For a minute here
I though something might happen like Lumière/éclair coming out but guess not, damn. Too much hope. So I guess Dia has a new friend to help out...can it become like it was when Ascoeur/Q-feuille fought it? Also did anyone notice much difference in Q-feuille even with the power up? Also is the OP and ED changed again? It looks like some new elements again.

I must commend them for throwing us some nostalgia with the scene in the lobby and the whole chamber with the former ES members. Yet for some reason I'm going to bet that they're not completely out of the picture though, as I found the text on those frames rather cryptic. But that could just be my lingering hope talking.

Yeah, it brought so many memories back from the first season. I hope many of those ES members come back somehow. There is something that I wonder about......cloning.

It was a nice enough episode, I must commend them for throwing us some nostalgia with the scene in the lobby and the whole chamber with the former ES members. Yet for some reason I'm going to bet that they're not completely out of the picture though, as I found the text on those frames rather cryptic. But that could just be my lingering hope talking.

There are two different EDs (other than the special Sakura karaoke one) but the clips used in the OP change every episode.

Though so, thanks for confirming. So the OP will change after another new episode shows up.

did you all watch the raw version? I think the sub group didn't release as fast as the previous 4 weeks.

It might be me, but the character art looked funky this ep. The backgrounds were nice and detailed though..

Oh how I miss the GOTT. This was the best ep so far, almost feels like a sequel, too bad it's not. Next ep we might have some srsbzns though

The reason it looked different is that a lot of the work this episode was handled by one person, Naoto Hosoda (he storyboarded, directed, supervised and did some of the keyframing hmself). Every other episode has split this work up among at least three people.

He worked on the original Kiddy Grade and also did this magazine illustration:

Saved image, so that is the reason. Was he the one who made that pilot Kiddy Grade 2 small video too?

I checked the credits for the Pilot DVD and he was one of the 16 key animators who worked on it.

Ok, sounds good then, hope he does more action in this series so it looks more like Kiddy Grade.

Full comedy ep.
They are using more references than the original series used for humor, from the Konami Code to Inoue Kikuko's shows.

The best empty show of the season. Seeing the 3 of them together I could go for another season.

Yet another random episode. I can't believe that the blood was really mud. XD I look forward to seeing the powers of the new monster!

Hahahaah! Yeah that was hilarious but even more was that Q-feuille was fooled by it.

How come this isn't getting any better?
Come on.

Oh, and shouldn't Mercredi and Armbrust be there too? I've watched Kiddy Grade some time ago so I might be missing something, but they're also ES Members and if Alv and Dvergr are there...

Neither of them were GOTT ES-members (they were undercover agents for the GU).

well actually, armblast is an es member. that commander guy even said so on episode 12 Frozen/Life. so I'm guessing he was both?

He was an ES-member but not a GOTT ES-Member so would not appear on their wall of fame.

Great episode I've enjoyed it from the first moment to the last.

I hoped to learn more about what happened to the old members in this episode.

I admit I laughed with the konami joke, but I feel for Q-feuille for now having 2 idiots on the team.
