Hello. Does anyone watch or know of R.O.D or the tv? My favorite characters are Sumiregawa, Agent Paper, and Anita

06-22-2005, 02:18 PM
its a great series...the movie was really good too...but had a very sad ending..

06-22-2005, 02:28 PM
I only got to see the movie, but I thought it was excellent. (The ending was pretty sad, though.) Yumiko Reedman (Agent Paper) was my favorite, along with the dude with the fire staff (I forgot his name! :p ).

I didnt see the ending to the movie unfortunately.:( But Yumiko is a lot like me with all those books. I was sad to see them get burnt up in the Anime which is probably just the same quality as the movie.

the movie was great! the show is awesome. i only have one problem with the show that has driven me to insanity: the agent paper in the show has a different voice than the movie. whenever any show does that i go insane! why did they do it, WHY?!
it's still a great series though.

06-22-2005, 03:41 PM
It's not totally different but the movie is a little older than the show.

06-22-2005, 04:58 PM
i love the series! i own the movie. the movie's different from the show though. and does anyone know why yomiko has a british accent in the show but not in the movie?

06-22-2005, 05:33 PM
i have only seen some episods of the tv show but it is good and i agree with the voices they should not change them but the person who mite of quit and they had to replace her with someone else and the movie is sad at the end and i feel sad that the book burnt but i am kinda glad becauce i dont like books i think that they are evil

06-22-2005, 05:43 PM
It was very sad...i love the paper girl (forgot her name)
it a pretty good anime/movie

06-22-2005, 05:48 PM
ya it was and i dont remember any of their names. what is your real name i am kerri hi

06-22-2005, 06:15 PM
I too only saw the movie, but I don't think the ending was sad. It wasn't happy, for sure, but I think it was hopeful. I love it when anime's do that. :awe: Like in the end of Metropolis. That was a good movie, though I seem to be the only one who thinks so. Anyway, Yomiko was so cool, though her obsession with books kind've pissed me off during the beginning. But after a while I got used to it.

06-22-2005, 07:08 PM
I enjoyed their passions for reading. I also share it. Im not sure but in the movie her accent is very faint. In the show however it is fully embraced, but it's possible that whatever she had done or been through in England brought it upon her. The person who reminds me so much of myself would be Maggie:awe:

06-22-2005, 07:22 PM
ya i am also like maggie and in Metropolis i also thought that the ending was good but it was kinda sad not as sad as read or die the movie was but i did like both of them alot

06-22-2005, 08:13 PM
I dont know what Metropolis is cause I havent seen it only read stuff about it. Maggie is like me but anita is my favorite:D

06-22-2005, 08:22 PM
There's Yumiko (agent paper), Anita, Maggie, Michele, Sumiregawa (nenene), Junior, juniors mom, that soldier dude, and those two people from the British Library. Those are the main characters. There's a few more I guess:p

06-22-2005, 08:23 PM

06-22-2005, 08:24 PM
Yeah junior is really cool. He can move through stuff. Luckily his mom can too so he cant get away from her.

06-22-2005, 08:25 PM
i like Junior to he is cool

06-22-2005, 08:26 PM
ha ha ha ha ha ha

06-22-2005, 08:28 PM
He is like the evil guy who ends up being good. Unfortunately for him, his father is head of the British Library and destroying all the books!

actually.........i forgot who but someone in the movie could do that too....i think they still can in the TV thing........hmm.....what was her name.....

06-22-2005, 08:57 PM
...I haven't seen the series, only the movie. But I'm glad someone else liked Metropolis. You have good taste, Ranna.

06-22-2005, 09:01 PM
The series is different from the movie because it follow the paper sisters instead of just yumiko. It's a lot deeper too. I cant figure who likes books more, agent paper or maggie and michele?

Anime Lover**
06-22-2005, 09:10 PM
well......maggie and michele are always reading!

06-22-2005, 09:13 PM
Michele likes to buy books Maggie likes to read them lol Michele reads them too but Maggie gets very personal with them. She is very emotional

06-22-2005, 09:14 PM
so theres the one who likes them more!!! isnt there a girl scared of books?

06-22-2005, 10:11 PM
Anita is very afraid of books for personal reasons. Something happened when she was very young to scare her very badly and now she pretty much hates books. Of course I know what happened but im not gonna spoil for those who dont lol I would have been scared too

06-22-2005, 10:22 PM
Back on topic...

Yeah, I have seen the TV series. I must say, it is one of the best I have seen.

06-22-2005, 10:24 PM
yeah i know but people i know dont seem to think that way about it

06-22-2005, 10:26 PM
Fine then!
Ms. Anita King was present when Yumiko a.k.a. Agent Paper's powers went a little off. Agent Paper most likely would have destroyed Anita had her powers not manifested at that precise moment. This was before she met Maggie and Michele, yet no one knows why she was present at the library that day.

06-22-2005, 10:27 PM
................. ok...and shes still scared why? lol

06-22-2005, 10:31 PM
Because she was attacked in a library by books. There was fire everywhere too. She was only a very young girl back then

lol you sound smart.........anywho well to admit something i got lost a few times but thats cause i did not watch all of it lol

06-23-2005, 10:08 AM
I can be smart sometimes too! And besides that, I think you started watching towards the middle of the season. So you missed a lot of stuff.
