You can watch Ikki Tousen and School Days here - those are more mature..sort of.

I don't think there are many anime titles that fit your "real action" description. Add to that ones that aren't already licensed by Funimation (like Claymore) or others (like HSOTD) I think it will be a small number of actual available titles.

This is the part that interests me the most. Nevermind the ecchi stuff, does this mean that we''ll actually start getting beyond the PG13 limit? For example, anime similar to Claymore or High School of The Dead. Although I doubt that CR will get those specifically, something with real action would be fantastic.

Was announced in Anime News Network the same time that it announced Panty and Stocking, Fortune Arterial, and Sora no Otoshimono Forte. Look at the press release

Having seen Kiddy Grade certainly helps a bit for Kiddy Girl, it's isn't vital as the series mostly stands on it's own. There are a few characters that appear in both and some references to the first series but Kiddy GIrl centers around some brand new characters with their own story.

mature shows are fine and all, but i'd like something actually mature, like the upcoming deadman wonderland

I'd be more interested in Kiddy Girl if it were a continuation of Kiddy Grade (my guilty pleasure of...a few years ago now) on the basis of that series' second half or so. Still over-the-top, still containing fanservice, but it had some entertaining development. Everything I've heard about its sequel suggests this is not present in Kiddy Girl. Shame, but not a big deal.

I'm not sure when I'll get around to watching any of these (nor am sure which would be considered the "best" of the three), but I certainly appreciate seeing more of the older Anime series added to the catalog. Maybe it's because I only became a paid member earlier this year, but there's definitely plenty of interesting stuff for me to watch now. Can't wait to see what all gets added in 2011.

The simulcasts are usually in the UK, but the catalog titles have been about 50:50 in UK, Ireland, Netherlands and Scandinavia, because when a US distributor uploads it, they only have North American rights. And since only some of the simulcasts stay in the catalog, relying on the simulcasts to increase the catalog titles available in Europe, Asia Oceania or Latin America will take years to build up.

So I expect that the point of the catalog titles in the deal they announced earlier in the Fall with Kadokawa Pictures, a Japanese production/licensing firm, was exactly to get a broader catalog available outside of just North America. We focused on the three simulcasts at the time, but it didn't say how many seasons of simulcasts were included in the deal, so it could be up to 12 other catalog series that Kadokawa manages the rights for.

This article from ANN last year shows the kind of series that Kadokawa's US subsidiary had licensed for international distribution when they shut their US subsidiary down last year.

I had already seen the other two, and started watching Mushi-uta last night, and finished it earlier today, which should give you a hint of my opinion on it.

I had seen Cosplay Complex on DVD, and Kiddy Girl-and as a fansub when it was originally broadcast. I have to say I enjoyed Mushi-uta more than the other two.

I will be watching Kiddy Girl-and again here to "get legit", but I'm can't say I am looking forward to it. Kiddy Grade it isn't. I would not say it is terrible, but the problem is that I did not find it to be that good, either.

Lol ;D I think not.
I've already watched the Kiddy Girl-and before and after watching all the episodes, I found out that there was a season 1 of this anime. But I only watched the two episodes of the Season 1.. It's because I've already watched the season 2..
LOL ;D I hope you get what I mean.
