News from the official Kiddy Grade site today that the original 24-part series from 2002 is to be cut together and condensed into three 80 to 90-minute theatrical releases, complete with new and revised scenes, slated for projection at Theatre Shinjuku between April and September 2007. Why do I get the feeling that this is just a vehicle to milk Hirano Aya‘s newfound stardom? Not that I’m complaining, mind you… In slightly older news, a pilot DVD for Kiddy Grade 2 will go on sale this spring at seven minutes and 2,940 yen. Details beyond this are scarce, but given the staff they’ve trotted out for it and the new designs on the page it can only point to a new series in the works, probably for broadcast later this year.
