…It’s a quirky little three-episode OVA that I noticed at the video store the other day.
A good description can be found here, complete with screenshots, but no spoilers.
And really, what more can be said for this series, more than it’s characters?
Secret agents…working for the British Royal library.
A glasses-wearing, book-obsessed hard core nerd heroine, with the metahuman ability to control paper. (It’s cooler than it sounds. Really.) She even keeps her clothes on (!).
Another secret agent who seems to be a combination of Kitty Pryde and Planetary’s Jakita Wagner.
And an evil clone brigade of 17th-19th century allstars. ("Ach, out of my vay! I am Otto Lilienthal!")
How could you not love a series like that?
On the downside…there’s no sequel, as of yet. There’s a Manga, but I don’t know if it’s available in English.
It apparently has a “sequel” series, “Read or Dream,” coming out soon…but that one features all-new characters, a trio of paperkinetic sisters. This strikes me as being like the “Doggett and Reyes” episodes of The X-Files…without the original characters, what’s the point?
So…am I the only person in North America who’s seen this thing?
