    Default Origami manga

    There's manga out there about everything, right? Cooking manga is an entire subgenre of its own, complete with recepies. There's stories about each and every sport. Board games (including shogi). Wine-tasting. There's sex instruction manual mangas for adults and sex-ed manga for kids. So where's the origami manga that obviously has to exist?

    I've been folding origami since I was 8, and work at an intermediate-advanced level.* Heck, I teach Girl Scouts origami. I wanna read origami stories.

    Please point me toward some. Extra bonus points if there's translations (official or fan) available.

    * I've worked through Lang's insect books and just about everything by Montroll.

    Specifically Kama Sutra related, or the sex manual mangas? I was thinking of Futari Ecchi when I wrote that.

    Read or Die, eh? I've only seen the OVA, but I take it the paper sisters of the manga do some origami things with paper? I'll check it out, then.

    Nah, Read or Die is a thriller -- secret agents of the British Library who happen to be paper mages. The OVA rocks as an action/adventure, with an opening theme that outdoes James Bond movies. Check it out.

    The tv series is a lot worse than the OVA.

    Read or Die has a complicated history: started as a light novel series, R.O.D: Read or Die (with, yes, no period after the D, go fig); which has two manga adapations, Read or Die and its sequel Read or Dream; and two anime adaptations, the OVA called Read or Die and the series called R.O.D the TV. All the incarnations involve Yomiko Readman, a special agent of the British Library, though Dream and TV feature other characters looking for her after she goes missing, one of them a writer.
