A sinister plot is afoot and only one schoolteacher - a special agent with an affinity for rare books - can stop it. She is Ms. Yomiko 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 of 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!
Spoken Languages: English, Japanese, English subtitles.
