Kiddy Grade (2002)


Series that's good in bursts, but there's a lot of characters and its convoluted and hard to follow, so it loses some of the punch it otherwise might've had. Apparently they condensed the series into a trio of movies in an attempt to do that.

Followed by: Kiddy Girl-and (Not on IMDb yet and haven't seen it.)

AKA: Girls With Guns, Skirts Of Fury, Battling Babes, Butt-Kicking Babes, Ass-Kicking Chicks, Action Chicks, Action Heroines, Female Assassin, Female Killer, Female Warrior, Female Martial Artist, Girl Fighter, Chick Fight, Female-Female Fight, Female-Male Fight, Femmes Fatales

This list is for the movies, TV, and anime I recommend that have females fighting (not exclusively females fighting each other) as a central theme. I'm including series with fights using magical or psychic powers but will try to note the ones that are exclusively that. There's a fairly wide range (except for extreme horror/gore like Elfen Lied, The Machine Girl, etc., which I avoid).

Most of my favorites are subtitled Asian movies and anime. There's a Non-Asian section at the bottom. With each, rather than put "I prefer turning on the subtitles over the dub," I'll just put it once here because I haven't found any exceptions yet. Most, if I had to listen to the dub, I wouldn't care to watch the movie/series at all, and I often don't even bother checking the dub.

Entries sorted by my rating (those toward the bottom of the list are borderline and could be skipped without missing much). Anything below 3 stars or that don't have very much action I moved to a separate Females Fighting [the 'Non-Favorite' ones] list, so you can subscribe to the RSS feed of this list and not get a bunch of those as updates. There's also a Females Fighting [the 'Not Interested' ones]. And a Females Fighting [the 'Want to watch' ones] list that I'll transfer to this list or the other one as I see them.

Open to suggestions.
