''Read or Die'' is a three-episode {{OVA}} about the adventures of Yomiko Readman -- an [[BunnyEarsLawyer eccentric]] ([[CuteBookworm and]] [[BunnyEarsLawyer eccentric]]) bibliomaniac, part-time substitute teacher, and [[BadassBookworm super-powered agent]] for the British Library's secret intelligence division. Yomiko (code-named "The Paper" by the British Library) possesses what can best be called [[ElementalRockPaperScissors elemental]] [[PaperMaster paper powers]], which allows her to manipulate paper in practically every way thinkable (e.g. she can stop bullets by holding a notecard in their path). She also has an insatiable addiction to reading, and she feeds it by spending thousands of dollars a week on books. Yomiko is an odd combination of giggling innocent schoolgirl-ish woman (one gets the distinct impression most of the time that her mental age and, er, general level of life experience are those of a twelve-year-old) and stone cold killer.

* HotLibrarian + BadassBookworm: Yomiko. Her extreme love of books can get to be a very expensive habit (at one point, she even asks her boss for a cash advance so that she can purchase more books), but the British Library still regards her as [[BunnyEarsLawyer one of the best in her field]]. When her voice actress was replaced for the dub, her accent suddenly became [[BritishAccents British]]. And yes, it made her ''even hotter''.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Ikkyu; why not have your DoomsdayDevice being able to activate one second from when the countdown ends?



* YouSaidYouWouldLetThemGo: Nancy complains to Ikkyu that he promised he would not kill Yomiko. He explains that while Yomiko does need to die, he will clone her and alter her personality to be more in tune with his goals, so FromACertainPointOfView he was telling the truth.
