Fun anime, and it's been awhile.

"After seeing the repetatity of Full Metal Panic, and the blah finale of Rune Soldier, it's been a long time since I've had the pleasure of viewing an extremely
well crafted anime as the R.O.D. TV series.
I find it to be a much more indepth extension to the previous OVA which consisted of Yomiko Readman fighting the Ijin's on very limited resources and not allowing the audience to see the full capabilities of a paper user, which this series does by giving you 3 users with 3 very unique talents.
The animation is brilliant, the characters are dynamic and loveable, and the twisting cliff hanger endings in the episodes surprised me on more than one occassion.
A solid "A" anime all around.
On a side note, it's really irritating when you get a reviewer like tweedledum65.
"I love how the paper sisters are so slutty on the covers god it's hot. yah only if your some freak of nature on crack like the people on anime on dvd who gave this an "A"
You don't have to like the anime, but please don't insult others for liking it. I have read all of your previous reviews. They consisted of many other animes that you thought were crap because and I quote, "these girls have the biggest boobs," "the series has gone down hill since the first episode," and "if you like it you must be on crack." You don't elaborate your point of WHY you don't like it, you just say "it sucks, and if you like it you suck too." You even gave Neon Genesis Evangelion - Platinum Collection Disc 1 a 1 star only to later retract it because you hadn't even watched it before making the first review. This makes me wonder if you actually watch any of the animes you review or if you pop in the DVD and instantly turn off the TV when breasts appear. Though you did give Kiddy Grade a decent rating so you must have gone to the bathroom at key moments, thus preventing yourself from being horribly scarred at the sight of her animated bosom."
Good fun anime

"Gosh. The other reviewer, who seems to me, only watched the first four episodes of this series and judged the title soley on that. Oh, and on the DVD covers. This isn't the first anime to have 'fan service' on the DVD covers. Look at Kiddy Grade, an anime that this tweedledum65 reccommends over R.O.D tv. I'm not going to get into details on this anime, for good reviews check out www.themanime.org, I'm just saying I liked it, and if you're paitient, and like a good mystery, I hope you find this series just as enjoyable as i do."
Lots of fun.

"Well, I'd agree with tweedle that the "fan service" pencil cards are over the top, but only because they are inconsistent with the characters in the series. The series is very good in character development, with lots of good back story early on.
The only "fan service" episode is "Heart of Darkness", which shows a bare chested woman, but she's not one of the main characters. It doesn't seem very provocative to me, since there's no emphasis on sex, the character is only trying to keep her clothes dry. Still, this feels like a "filler" episode, and doesn't really contribute to the story.
The plot is inconsistent between seasons. In Heart of Darkness, the girls search for an ancient key for the books, but in episode 14 (the set up for the second season), we find that the books are not ancient...
I like the art in this series, It has a hand drawn feel to it, lots of attention to detail.
I'd definitely buy it again."
