    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • The large briefcase concept is commonly used in many space adventure anime shows such as Outlaw Star and Cowboy Bebop, as well as the live action space drama Firefly, and the more recent anime such as Black Lagoon.

      • The main characters introduce themselves in this episode.

        Eclair is the redhead in the Kiddy Grade Pair. Her weapon is her lipstick, which she can draw on any surface and use the resulting line like a ribbon or a slicing whip.

        Lumiere is the shorter, younger looking girl with the light purple hair. Her speciality is hacking into the computers using her mind.

        Both seem to have superhuman powers such as the ability to summon barriers against laser gunfire.

        Armbrust also works for the Global Union, but he gives the impression that he could be a double agent. He carries around a large black suitcase. An alternative spelling used in the English dub is Armblast.

        Eclipse oversees the operation. She usually authorizes the use of force when the girls want to arrest the culprits.

        Mercredi is Eclipse's assistant. She usually wears glasses.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Armbrust: I see. So you flushed them all to a warped space with no exit. Then you slammed the lid on the toilet as it were?
        Lumiere: I prefer to think of it as locking birds in a cage.
        Éclair: (twirling card) It's the same thing, isn't it? Anyway, here ya go. The key to the toilet. (tosses card to Lumiere)
        Lumiere: (scoffs as she catches card) A lady should really be more elegant.

    • NOTES (2)

      • Funimation YouTube
        Funimation set up a partnership with YouTube to broadcast the series for a limited time. They released four episodes a week starting from July 25, 2008.

      • Episode Numbering / Production Codes
        The series uses Roman Numerals to number each episode in the series, hence they are to be used as production codes. The numerals are surrounded by braces.

        Episode Title Format
        Each title consists of two words with a slash in between. The first letter of the first word is colored blue and the first letter of the second word is colored red.

        to be continued?
        Following each episode is the message "to be continued", although the episodes don't become serial until around episode 9.
