The show follows Yomiko Readman, a young girl who works as a secret agent for the British Library as she investigates the dissappearance of a mysterious book that could threaten the world. Yomiko is not the weak bookworm that she appears to be however, she has a gift - absolute control over paper.
I know, I know the premise sounds dreadful but honestly once you get into this is a great show. The plot is quick and to the point. The characters are intelligent and well thought out and the same goes for the dialogue. Trust me give it a chance and you will enjoy it.
