    Anime is a lot like sex. Done right it's a beautiful act of creation that brings a little more light into the world. If it's sick and wrong... it's even better.

    I've only seen the movie, which I remember coming before the series. I understand the two have nothing in common.

    It's been a while, so I don't remember all the details, but this seems to be the movie:



    The girl with the glasses is a librarian and a special agent, as I recall. She loves to read, and can use paper as a weapon.


    The first James Bond.
    Believe it or not.

    Not exactly. The movie and the series do link up and it's very emotional, action packed, etc. And yes, some of the heroes have power to control paper, though each in different ways. Other characters have other super powers.

    The first time me seeing this anime, you gave it such a wonderful description, I am going to bookmark it and watch it as soon as I will finish the current one.
    I love to spend time playing moto x3m, sniper game, Air duel what about you?

    There was a movie, then a series, also a manga series that predates both I think... never found that part.

    I've only recently heard of this series thanks to another particular anime discussion site. I saw the opening and some screencaps from it and I love the overall look of it. I might just check it out.

    I thought the movie came before the series. So I checked it out in imdb.com. What I thought was the movie was a three part mini-series which came out in 2001. I guess they edited all three parts into one movie at some point, because I don't remember it as a mini-series. The TV series came out in 2003.

    The manga was a prequil, the ROD TV series came after the movie/miniseries.

    Now that I think about it, I think I saw the Read or Die movie/mini-series on Adult Swim. It may have been a three part OVA that they just edited together. It was really some time back.

    OVAs go first, then the anime season after them. Must say I happened to find the opening a few years ago and decided to give it a try. Found it quite enjoyable. It is very much a spies meet fantasy kind of story. But once again, the opening is very catchy! Honorable mention because of this.

    Spoilers: Contains books. Lots of them!
