R.O.D. リード・オア・ダイ

Adam Whybray's rating of the film Read or Die

2.6 stars. Veers between amusing and bemusing at alarmingly high speeds. For an OVA with an ostensibly literary premise, it is nae more than daffy genre trash. But it is all pulled off rather slickly and Yomiko Rīdoman is an irresistibly endearing protagonist! If you're a relatively carefree young person and like anime watch it while you are still pure of heart enough to enjoy it!
