Different From the Read or Die OVA
13 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Read or Die: TV has few action scenes throughout all its 26 episodes, but when it occurs, it's really memorable and fantastic. i really love Read or Die: TV. The characters are very appealing, especially the character named Maggie. The paper manipulation, which is the power to manipulate paper (obviously), is amazing to watch and quite a interesting idea of a power. The music creates a fun spy mood that intensifies the actions scenes when they occur. And the art and animation I found to be really nice; i really like the character art; it just appeals to me. The colors, the look, everything is just beautiful to my eye. Read or Die: TV seems to concentrate more on developing the characters and story more than the OVA, which is very welcoming even though it creates a slower pace than the OVA. Still, this is a fantastic anime series and is one of my top favorites. Excellent action (when it occurs), wonderful music, beautiful art, lovely characters, and an enjoyable story with humor, tragedy, love, etc. Oh, and by the way, if you really liked Read or Die OVA and want to check out Read or Die: TV, don't expect the amount of action in the episodes to be the same amount of action in Read or Die OVA episodes. As aforementioned, Read or Die:TV has few actions scenes spread throughout and concentrates more on developing the characters and story mostly through dialog and interaction (but sometimes through action scenes).
