Meet the Minami sisters, three girls living on their own and doing their best to make it through life's little snags and adventures. Kana, the middle sister, has far more energy than common sense; Chiaki, the youngest, is more reserved, but her sharp tongue and devious mind often cause trouble for others; and Haruka, the eldest, acts like a mother to the other two, is beautiful and kind, but has a fearsome stern streak. Together, no obstacle can stand in their way, be it school, romance, or even cooking.
Although Read or Die has a more unrealistic plot with detectives being able to magically manipulate paper the characters are similar to the ones in Minami-ke in which, just as in Read or Die, three sisters are trying to make a living and survive the circumstances that life presented to them.
The three distinct personalities of the three sisters in Read or Die TV really remind me of the three Minami sisters in Minami-ke.
Although they are different genres, ROD-tv has got some great slice-of-life, moments despite being action, and both appeal to the same sense of humour.
A giant wall looms over Tokyo, shielding the city from a dangerous otherworld called the 'Hell's Gate'. Within the city, things are no less terrifying because Contractors, psychopathic killers with phenomenal powers, have started to appear. These killers are compelled to pay a price every time they use their powers, often in the form of a meaningless or painful task. As their deadly habits rack up a gruesome death toll, Kirihara Misaki and her team from the Foreign Affairs Public Security struggle to solve the cases and bring the Contractors under control. Their task is further confounded by the interference of a masked individual they title Messier Code BK201, a man with abilities that allow him to fight and defeat the Contractors. Who is this BK201? How can the Contractors be stopped permanently? And what does the appearance of the Hell's Gate mean for the people of Tokyo?
Both Darker than Black and Read or Die - TV deal with individuals with 'superpowers' going against large organizations that once worked for.
Darker than Black and Read or Die both have major characters with 'personal superpowers'. The action sequences all have the same feel for it and for viewing pleasure I'd recommend Darker than Black. It does however feature less of the 'emotional bonds' between characters (only a little) and the stories are very different.
Still highly recommended
Toudou Gakuen is no ordinary high school. There, during the Meiji Restoration, fighting masters were forced to gather from all over Japan to re-establish the martial arts. Amongst the student body is a group of immensely powerful fighters who maintain order through absolute power. This "Enforcement Group" is locked in a feud with the Jyuuuken Club over matters of love and death. Now, two newcomers have disturbed the order of this school, becoming entangled in this vicious feud. Caught between sexy babes and terrible powers, the battle to be the strongest begins!
Both series have this sort of superpowerfeeling around it. Though Tenjou Tenge has less story and more ecchiness, where R.O.D. has more story and no ecchiness (though there is some minor nudity in R.O.D.). Another pooint in which those two series differ alot is the *way* people fight. It's more material in R.O.D., while Tenjou Tenge has more "flesh vs flesh". So where you'd ifnd guns in R.O.D., you'll find swords in Tenjou Tenge.
In a far and distant future, men and women have become mortal enemies. Each living on seperate planets, an interstellar war is being fought between the two very different peoples. Hibiki, a mere 3rd class worker, finds himself in the middle of a huge space battle, facing the nemesis of mankind: Womankind!
Sakura Kinomoto never imagined that by opening a book in her father's library, she'd be responsible for releasing wild magic into the world, yet that's exactly what she did. Too powerful to be let loose on the world, the magical Clow cards were sealed away long ago by their creator, Clow Reed. But all is not lost, for the guardian beast, Keroberos, was sealed along with the cards! Can Sakura, with the help of Keroberos, retrieve the cards before they wreak havoc on the town?
While R.O.D. is aimed at a much more mature public, both series work on the same conept. While in R.O.D. it's about books, in Card Captor Sakura it's about cards. The humor in Card Captor Sakura is of a low maturity level, while the few jokes in R.O.D. are aimed at a much more mature public. In addition to that: R.O.D. contains some nudity. R.O.D. does not have the Magic Girl, while in Card Captor Sakura there is one. SO if you likea more mature version of Card Captor Sakure, withough the Magic Girl, you'll probably like R.O.D. If you like the more kiddy anime and love Magical Girls, check out Card Captor Sakura
