One of the best series ever!
5 January 2005 | by (Calgary, Canada) – See all my reviews

When you take a series of epic proportions like Eva or Gundam, themes get bunched up together, so in the end you end up watching a psycho-drama in the first case and an action movie/soap opera in the second case (depending on the "flavour" of the Gundam). This series, however, has it all. And just for the record, to those who say that R.O.D - The TV does not come close to the OVA: see the whole thing before you judge the series.

The long (~10-episode) introduction in the TV series is just that - slowly reeling you in, getting you used to the three sisters, as the makers of the series prepare you for at least three or four major, and well thought-out subplots involving a good, gradual reintroduction of old OVA characters, some with new, sinister plans (hehe).

I can safely say that the last ten episodes of the series were totally hard-hitting all the way, with a cliffhanger in almost every one, involving both drama, suspense, politics and sweet, sweet paper-action. I don't remember having such a a great amount of empathy for many other anime characters in the past -- the story and characterization is *that* good.
