Ecchi Anime "Colorful" Screen Caps and Torrent Link

Colorful is an Ecchi anime that runs for sixteen episodes seven minute each in length. It is full of fan service and is a funny look at what some men will go through for peek down a blouse, or a glimpse of panty. It is completely random with new characters almost every episode. If you don't like fan service, or want a continuing story stay away from this anime, but if you want a quick laugh this is the anime for you.

I posted YouTube videos after the screen captures for the first 6 episodes. The screen caps are from the fourth episode.

If you want to download the series you can get the bit torrent file here. It was subbed by anime fin you can find them on IRC at #anime.fin@irc.chatsociety.net

Kiddy Grade Wallpaper Downloads

Galactic Organization of Trade and Tariffs

Kiddy Grade is a pretty good anime series if you can make it through the first seven or eight fan service heavy, random episodes that is. The first seven episodes seem to only exist for Gonzo to portray Eclair panty-shots. The stories are random but fun and I stuck around because I had heard that the series greatly improved. I agree with that assessment the stories turn much darker and become a collected whole although it does seem to fall apart again late in the series. The series is available on DVD from Netflix or buy the box set from Amazon for $85.

Any series that includes Asimov's three 3 laws is more then watchable in my book. I don't like anime about giant robots but I really like anime that include AI.

After the wallpaper I posted a YouTube video slide show of Kiddy Grade with the opening theme as background music.
