"read or die"

i was watching adult swim last weekend and instead of showing its usual anime series, they showed a (anime) movie called "Read or Die".
in my opinion the movie was okay, but what i wanna know is if anyone else had seen this movie and if so, did you like it?

R.O.D. (Read Or Die) was a pretty good movie. I watched it a short while back and loved it! I even have a small poster with a picture of 2 of the characters on it!
Although probebly wrong, I had heard some where about a second R.O.D. movie. Can any one confirm this?

I've seen a few times and overall I like it, not so much in some parts, but overall I think it's worth seeing.

There is currently an R.O.D. tv series being released in the US. So far, I've seen 3 DVDs come out and if you have satellite, you can catch some episodes on G4 tech tv.

I watched it too. The character designs, plotline, everything about it was unique to me. Great stuff. And Yomiko Readman is a great character, sort of the bookworm-ditz rather than a popular ditz. Definitely different in a good way.

I'm interested to know: Is the TV series as well-done as the OVAs?

I found Read or Die quite interesting. It was a different type of Hero. When you think of Superpowers, you don't think of Paper as a weapon. And Yomiko Readman is an interesting character. If you have some spare cash lying around, pick it up, it quite worth it.
