Sweet, love this franchise, both the OVA and TV series are two of my favorites.

It would be really great, since it started that way before, if this will also be a big enough light novel project that it'll be able to support a new OVA or TV series depending on it's length/story/etc. someday as I'd love to see more Read or Die.

This is good news, hopefully the new ova or series will continue on after the end of the R.O.D The TV series. This would be good because it could contain both Yomiko Readman and The Paper Sisters. So even though the Read Or Dream series isn't a direct connection, the Tv show did well to intertwine the two novel/manga series

I am hoping the new series would focus on Yomiko Readman, considering she was treated as a secondary character in the TV series.

Aw, seems to be a printing rather than any sort of anime.

That would be cool if they make more anime out of this!

I really enjoy both shows, and even cosplayed as "Mr. Joker" from these shows.

Excellent!!!


I was wondering when this would happen, and finally there is more.

I wonder if Read or Dream will go back into print as well. I never got a chance to acquire that. Maybe I will get it on amazon.com, but it would be nice to see it in the bookstores.

This. Been hoping for more someday as well. Putting it after the tv series sounds cool so we can get both awesome casts that have been built up, either way I'd love to have another R.O.D anime with Yomiko back in the lead.

I would like to read the novels. I wonder if anyone would pick them up and translate them.

Indeed, those would be nice to see as well. I understand the Read or Die series with Yomiko Readman in the lead was based on those novels.

This is pretty good news to me since I rate R.O.D and R.O.D. the TV collectively as my second favorite anime. I'll be curious to see what comes of this project.
