R. o. D TV

Plot: It's been five years since Yomiko Readman's disappearance. Three sisters who have the ability to manipulate paper become bodyguards for a young author named Nenene Sumieregawa (who is also Yomiko's best friend) after an incident at a press conference. The sisters, Michelle, Maggie and Anita, stay at Nenene's place and cause all kinds of trouble for her. As they deal with minor threats along the way, they stumble onto something much more dangerous...(A-)

Characters: A

Art & Animation: A-

Voice Acting: Original Japanese - A (I've only seen one episode in the dub a LONG time ago...)

Music: B+

Objectionable Content: Blood, suggestive themes, profanity (a few episodes contain explicit material or nudity)

Other: Definitely watch the "Read or Die" movie FIRST. You might as well be completely lost if you've never seen it, because a lot carries over into the series.

The characters are interesting and so are the plot twists, but some episodes (the ones with the really bad stuff) are downright WEIRD.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2.5/5
