Her task is made even more difficult because her school would fire her if they found out about her criminal activities.She has to pretend to be an ordinary teacher while fighting off rival yakuza, winning the respect of delinquent students and keeping her family business away from the school. This becomes even harder when her smartest and most curious student begins to find her very... "interesting".

The stories and settings for Read or Die and Gokusen are very dissimilar. While this may seem to make the two a poor match for recommendation, what brings these two together is the nature of the main protagonist in each. Both are strong and gritty women possessed of great depths of compassion tempered with iron willpower. If you found yourself bobbing in your seat, or swinging your fists in the air to one, you will surely be trying to make paper slice through apples to the other.

Both Read or Die TV and Get Backers feature characters whose mission is to retrieve something. The Get Backers have amazing talents and fighting abilities and the story is more about their past; while Read or Die TV has characters that will entertain you with their relationships and abilities (the same abilities that help them retrieve precious books). Look forward to the great action scenes in both!

Comedy

Legend tells of a lone swordsman who lives in the Demon's Castle, the ruins near the Black Forest. This mysterious stranger only accepts rare books for his services, books from the ancient past. Comedy tells the story of a young girl who desperately wishes for her family and village to be saved from the coming English soldiers' wrath, and is willing to trade a precious book in exchange for the deed. With only her legs beneath her, she runs towards the Black Forest, hoping to get there in time...

Fighting the British Empire is probably one of few things Kigeki and ROD have in common. Well, it probably wouldn't be much reason for recommendation if not for the fact that books are involved in both shows. Simply if you liked one, the other might interest you as well.

P.S. It seams to be some logical order in watching Read or Die, ROD TV, then Kigeki and finally Code Geass.

Both series have a cute girl/girls with some rather unique powers, but portrayed in a more "realistic" way, with government entities trying to gain control of them for their own purposes. Similar look and feel to both shows, and a similar combination of the overarching story with some romance/drama/comedy sprinkled in.

Full Metal Panic!

Full Metal Panic!

Gonzo does it again with this action-packed mecha comedy. She's an ordinary high school girl. He's a counterterror agent assigned to protect her from those who would steal the information locked in her mind. OK, so she's not so normal after all. Armored Slave battles and lovers' spats abound as Sousuke and his comrades try to track down the mysterious Gauln before it's too late.

ROD the TV and Full Metal Panic! are two anime that are generous with the humor, but still have a mission to be completed. They're action-packed shows with hilarious antics. Also, both have characters that stand out; interesting, well-developed, and funny! If you enjoyed watching one, I recommend you watch the other.
