Jen Young writes \"Here\'s an interesting review of an Anime. In the three-episode original video animation series R.O.D.: Read or Die, a terrorist organization has cloned them and a handful of other obscure historical figures, such as German glider enthusiast Otto Lilienthal and traveling monk Genjo Sanzo, and set them loose on the world. Their mission: to acquire a specific copy of Beethoven\'s Immortal Beloved in the original German. Unfortunately for them—and fortunately for the world—that book is in the hands of one Yomiko Readman, otherwise known as \"The Paper.\" And her life\'s goal seems to be to actually read the book before anyone uses it for evil.
