5.0 out of 5 stars A fun, original anime for just about everyone, June 23, 2004
This review is from: R.O.D -The TV- (Limited Collector's Edition) (DVD)
I watched the fansubs of this when it was out in Japan, and I can't wait to get the dvds. ROD may look 'cutesy', but it's far from shallow and there's a lot of excellent action and animation to boot. I'm a 29 year old guy, and my friends and I are shamelessly hooked on this show, so don't think it's just for kids or girls.
What really gets you addicted, though, are the endearing characters and the strong bonds they have to each other. Just as they care for each other, you care for them, and that keeps you hooked as they get into one perilous situation after another.
Fans of the original OVA may be put off by the fact that Yomiko Readman & crew are not the main characters in this show. Once you get to know the paper sisters, though, you won't mind a bit. And if you wonder what happened to Yomiko, Drake, and Ms. Deep after the OVA... well, you'll be in for a real treat a bit later on in the series ;)
Story/Plot: - 8 - Gets a bit convoluted at the end, but it's fun and original.
Animation - 9 - Excellent, especially for a 26-episode show.
Sound/Music - 8 - The music is great, and I like the new version of the ROD theme even better than the OVA's intro. The Japanese voice acting is great, and really brings the characters to life.
So, um, GET IT!
