Sumiregawa Nenene is an author who hasn't published a book in years. However, at a book signing in Hong Kong, things go fascinatingly awry. For starters, her guides are three sisters who operate a detective agency: Maggie, Michelle, and Anita. Then there's the attacks on Nenene's life, and her only line of defense is the three sisters -- who can all use paper as weapons, tools, and even transportation. But can their powers protect Nenene from the mysterious forces that not only want her, but all the precious books of the world...?

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.
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.
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.
Half a year has passed since Sousuke Sagara took up the job of protecting Kaname Chidori and has started living like a normal teenager for the first time. A former child soldier, his view on the perils of everyday life is highly unconventional and in frequent need of violent adjustment; Kaname can only hope her endless assault will eventually get him used to normal life. But a shadow looms over their happy days as Sousuke's employer, the private army called Mithril, is attacked by a new unknown enemy. Suddenly outgunned, can Mithril afford to keep one of their best playing around?
There is only one reason for this recommendation: "awesome fighting scenes". They appear very rarely in both series, but if you're a fan of those, you have to see this anime.
P.S. Watching Read or Die before ROD TV as well as watching Full Metal Panic! before watching FMP!: The Second Raid is very recommended.
Ban Midou and Ginji Amano are the Get Backers. With a 99 percent success rate in returning lost or stolen property to its original owners, they will do anything for the right price. Midou and Ginji often get hired for seemingly ordinary jobs that turn out to be more difficult than they appear; and whether it’s finding a doll for a girl, retrieving a stolen rare violin or getting mixed up with the mob, they have many adventures with plenty of petty squabbles along the way!
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!
