Really? I thought it ended really well - but then it's probably my favorite anime show of all time.

It's about as mainstream as non-Pokemon/Yu-Gi-Oh anime gets - it was aired during the TechTV (G4, whatever they're calling it now) anime block in the US - so that puts it on par with Last Exile, Rahxephon, etc in terms of exposure.

I dunno, i don't remember much about the actual show.

But i remember them building a climax and then handling it in a crap way. It was such a let down.

R.O.D. the TV

They're showing this cool new anime on anmax, t's called R.O.D. the tv. I really wanted to watch it but I can't because of it's odd show time. I just saw 2 or 3 episodes and I think that it's pretty good.

So I was wondering, do any of you guys know anything about this anime, well if you do then can you please tell me.

Stop watching Rod the TV and Get your hands on RoD the OVA.

Because after episode 17 you will not know what's going on as those 2 shows merge at that point.

I don't know if that's true. I watched R.O.D. the TV before I saw Read or Die (the OVA) and I didn't have any problem following along.

However, if you do like R.O.D. the TV I would recommend watching it anyway.

You can even know who won the Nancy/Nancy fight ahead of time, since the winner climbed out of the water with her left hand first.

I need to check the final TV episode again... I still believe she went to India to track down her sister? You clearly saw her holding up a picture of LH Nancy to a street vendor, asking questions. The vendor pointed at her, likely saying "isn't the person in the photo you? To which RL Nancy shakes her head.

I really can't interpret that scene, as well as her letter to Junior, as anything but proof that she is still hoping to find LH Nancy alive. Can't find the DVD right now, for some reason though...



My interperation is the Nancy was trying to find out what kind of person she was before she lost her memory and was tracing her footsteps. That was why she was showing a picture of herself to vendor in india. She was looking for people she came in contact with and retracing her own footsteps.


Edit: I would recommand watching the OAV first as the OAV came first then the TV and the TV refer to events that happen in the OAV.

Exactly....

In 17 Yomiko shows up and the viewer will go 'Who's That?' 'Why is she here?' 'Why is Nancy so Important?'

BTW Xellos, I love that Akiha banner

According to the Japanese Wikipedia page, she appears to be doing Japanese TV drama shows these days.

Read or dream is mostly a shojo with Paper sisters. No real action.

Girls doing girly things. More drama , less action.
