So /a/ what's your verdict on ROD TV?
Okay but kind of confusing at times.
OVAs, man, the OVAs
ep1 was epic. ep2 as shitty as ep4 of eva. rest bland and disorganized. if it was 13eps instead of 20whatever it was maybe it could have been good.
Get off of /a/ now.
ROD TV? Sounds...I don't know bff jill? ROD? NOTHING AT ALL?
OVA > TV
I liked it until the "your life is a lie and we organized your entire life leading up to this point" part. I don't know why.
also the ending was slightly unsatisfying
My favourite series ever, but I'm a sucker for book nerds.
Just realize that the pacing is a bit slow, since it aired two episodes at a time.
General consensus is the first half of the series is good, and the latter is made of emo and fail.
Why? Shits awful, I should know since I sat through it.
Even the OVAs were boring,
Where the fuck is my slice of life Read or Dream animu?
THIS SHOW ATTEMPTED TO BE LIKE 4 DIFFERENT SHOWS AT THE SAME TIME AND THEREFORE FUCKING FAILED.
I didn't expect something lame like that to come from Kurata.
Oh well. I'm eager to see where he takes Cloth Road and how he ends the ROD novels.

I liked them both.
Someone give me a folder dumper so I can turn this into a Maggie thread.
does anyone want to see my ROD?
should have kept it light-hearted
just pretend the second half of the series doesn't exist
There's some Maggie raping some dude doujin somewhere in here. You'll recognize this is the same dude that did the Sakaki one.
shit fucking sucks.
The show needed more mentally handicapped lesbian.
I'm glad it had a happy end.
Also, lol Hong Kong.
I saw the series after watching the OVA movie and was VERY VERY VERY dissapointed, It was so boring in comparison and the fights were weak
I'm glad I wasn't the only one who liked the episodes where they don't do anything more than the action ones. Overall I didn't think it was too bad. Also Mai Waifu
The animu needed Donny.
Oh Donny, how I long for you in a holding cell...
And for no fucking reason, Nancy.
What are you talking about? This shit series is filled with freaking fillers. The only worth watching is the first one and the ones towards the end.
Pretty much what he said. There's nothing I hate worse than when you take the old characters from a previous installment, and make them into total fucktards.
Not only were Joker and Nancy total fucktards in this, they made them look even dumber by the plan they had. Make everyone go to sleep or some stupid shit. It was just horrible.
If it weren't for the first half of the series, I would say ROD T.V. was a complete waste.
Not as good as the OVA, but pretty damn close. No reason not to watch both, especially if you like style > content shows.
2. R.O.D. Manga
3. R.O.D. TV
Seriously, read the manga. It even explains the line "Read or Die".
This anon hit the nail on the head. You can even see it in this thread. The people who like it probably just appreciate the style, whereas the haters just focus on the content. A matter of taste really.
I laugh at the people complaining about Nancy's character, since she was the brain asphyxiated evil clone that lost all her memories.
Also, still waiting on that folder dumper.
