Product Overview

A sinister plot is afoot and only one young school teacher with an overdeveloped affinity for literature can stop it - Ms. Yomiko Readman and better know to her colleagues in Section A of Library Special Operations as "Agent Paper." It seems someone is bent upon procuring several rare volumes of a lost Beethoven text and has somehow enlisted a few of history's most extraordinary people to aid in the endeavor. From the banks of the Ganges to the burgeoning book stalls of Tokyo, Ms. Readman and her fellow super-powered operatives must tangle with the likes of Tokugawa-era scientist Gennai Hiraga, aviation pioneer Otto Lilienthal, and 19th century entomologist Jean-Henri Fabre in a desperate race to find the books and save the World. Based on the manga from Ultra Jump magazine by screenwriter Hideyuki Kurata, and directed by Koji Masunari with character designs by Masashi Ishihama, file this three-episode thriller under "A" for Action and Adventure!
