Default Read Or Die

No funnily enough the title of the thread is not exactly telling you to read this it's actually one of the most recent additions from the Manga franchise.I saw this the other day and wondered if anyone else in here has caught this title.Any of you seen it and if so what did you think of it?

I'll give a synopsis for the uninitiated -

A sinister plot is afoot and only one schoolteacher - a special agent with an affinity for rare books - can stop it. She is Ms. Yomika Readman - better known to her colleagues in Section A of Library Special Operations as "Agent Paper."

Someone is bent upon procuring a lost Beethoven manuscript and has enlisted a few history's most extraordinary personalities, cloned from stolen DNA, to aid in the endeavor. Readman and her fellow super-powered operatives must tangle with the likes of Tokugawa-era scientist Gennai Hiraga, aviation pioneer Otto Lilienthal and 19th century entomologist Jean-Henri Fabre in a desperate race to find the books and save the World!

Action, espionage and adventure abound in this thrilling new anime series featuring top-rate animation and design. Based on the popular manga by Hideyuki Kurata.

Sounds ridiculous I know but it is actually a lot better than the plot outline would have you believe.

And I saw another directly after it called Kai Doh Maru, brought to you from Production I.G yep that bunch responsible for Ghost In The Shell and Blood The Last Vampire.Probably the best animation in a Manga I have ever seen in my life,worth seeing for the visuals alone.

Feudal Japan the beattle for the Capital city of Kyo rages as warring political factions vie for power against hereditary rulers. After the murder of her parents at the hands of her seditious uncle, a young girl named Kintoki flees to the mountains to lead a harsh life; she is renamed Kai Doh Maru by the local villagers. Rescued by Raiko, the Captain of 'The Four Knights' - honorable defenders who protect the peace of the city, she is raised within their group as a boy. Living among the Knights, she learns the practices of martial arts and develops into a skillful samurai, becoming a permanent member of their team. Now, as a young woman of seventeen, she begins to discover new feelings of passion and love for Raiko... but she also discovers that these new emotions cause a storm of jealousy and rage in another woman linked to her past.

recommend both for animation fans and even those not familiar with the brand.
