R.O.D. the TV

It is several years after the events of the Read Or Die OVA. Author Nenene Sumiregawa's novel is about to be made into a movie--and someone wants her dead. Her editor hires the Three Sisters Detective agency--Maggie, Michelle and Anita, three paper masters--as bodyguards for Nenene.

But the sisters discover disturbing questions and coincidences in their new roles. They soon realize that all of them are pawns in a horrifying global conspiracy. When allies become enemies, terrorists become leaders, and even your own past actions are revealed to have been guided by an evil intelligence, who is there to trust? And what has become of Nenene's old friend and inspiration, legendary paper master and secret agent Yomiko "The Paper" Readman?

R.O.D. the TV series lives up to the OVA very well. It has lots of character humor, wonderful suspenseful action scenes, and amazing feats of paper-mastery! The characters are wonderful....
