    Did I miss something?
    I really had a hard time watching this series. Had to force myself to continue seeing the next episode. The Intro really makes it seem like it is action packed but its only in a handful of episodes. The 4 main characters were very likeable. Nenene is sort of just mean, but thats ok cause its like "love mean". I especially liked Maggie but it was hard to figure out her character cause she dressed ...

    An OK watch, but look out for plotholes
    I had watched the OVA many years ago. It was a fun watch, though there was a lot left out. Happening upon the series on CR, I took the opportunity to watch it (and midway through, had to go back and re-watch the OVA).

    So the animation is top side of average with some particularly nice visuals here and there. It was not spectacular (there were no real artistic flairs that jumped out at me) but ...

    This is one of my Favorite animes!
    I love this series it continues to be one of my favs year after year. It revolves around three paper sisters (two of them major bibliomaniacs) who can control paper. These sisters are hired to complete secret missions given that they posses a power that very few have or even know about. Through out the series they fight against a secret organization called the Dokusensha devoted to Chinese ...

    R.O.D. A Big Suprise
    Honestly turned this on for the first time expecting very little. Watched a few minutes got bored and turned it off. Ended up coming back a little while later and gave it a chance. I'm glad I did.

    R.O.D. mainly revolves around three sisters. Its more of an action and a drama than anything else. There will be moments of sadness and moments of laughs. It pulls off what it tries to do and all ...

    A surprise awesome experience!
    Didn't know what to expect with ROD, but WOW! I love the use of music, the idea of paper manipulation is unique and incredible. I also really liked the use of the music during the thunderstorm downpour in the early "search" scene. It was just amazing. Where have they been hiding this anime?

    Well, I am hooked now... one more series to watch.

    One of the best anime titles that slips your mind.
    R.O.D. also known as Read Or DIe. Based on a light novel of the same name.,This series is fantastic. It is funny, well written and engaging. It is the sequel to the three episode R.O.D. OVA (Also fantastic) which introduces us to the paper master Yomiko Readman. I highly recommend watching the OVA.

    The series revolves around the "Paper sisters" who are three paper masters (They can manipulate ...

    A must watch, giving you loveable characters, with excellent moments.
    This is one of those shows that can easily draw you in, and make you wish there was more, more I say! This show has a predominately female cast of characters, but non of them ever falls into the role of male character who happens to be female, meaning that we get strong female characters who retain their femininity, and that alone is something rarely seen consistently in most media.

    I love re-watching this one
    This was one of the first animes I ever watched and I think it spoiled me ;-) Admittedly I wanted to hear more about the plots, more about the magic, and so on. But it's fantastic even so. The quirky good humour, the slice of life, and the fantasy with a sci fi bent ... I ate it up, years ago. And unlike other non-Simulcast anime I've watched, it's still fresh and vibrant, and while the drawings ...
