Read or Die (R.O.D) OVA review

Don't mess with her glasses.


    Read or Die OVA is the continuation of the storyline and characters, about few years after the events of the manga. The story follows Yomiko Readman,  codename "Agent Paper" working for the British Library's Special Operations Division, as she and the others figure out who and what is causing major problems around the world. In this story "rare books" are being taken from their rightful place. She is a bit of a book fanatic to the extend of having her whole one apartment filled with books having little room to move around. So the whole operation pecks her interest. Yomiko isn't any normal agent by any means. She and another agent have supernatural abilities to aid them whenever they see fit. As they go on, they have many battles over the books. At a point the plot twists and turns out to be bigger than any of the character imagined, with global endangerment beginning to unfold. Not new to this anime genre but was a good climax for it. This anime pulled me in through its accuracy with its great persons of history references and historic artwork that is thrown in here and there. With a taste of fiction given to the historic characters to make things just a bit more interesting.


    It begins with a horrible event that happens in Washington D.C. As a mysterious person with electronic powers trashing the white house in search for a certain book. Destroying everything in his path till he gets it. Secret service trying to protect the president tries to stop him but are completely unsuccessful. The US president is portrayed as a weakling man that pee's his pants whenever he is frightened throughout the whole anime. I thought it was funny at first, but I think that is what the writers think of America in someway.
