I've wanted to see it for some time now. I think it'll be great. I can't wait until it comes on CN. ;D

When I saw the interviews on the dvd, it said it doesn't stand for Read or Die.  ROD: The TV is kinda based on Read or Dream(the manga) but kinda different too.  I think they said they left it as just ROD.

No, it's still Read or Die like the OAV. Read or Die was from the manga of the same name, the TV series was based off of Shin Read or Die (the sequel manga). Read or Dream if anything is just the subtitle for that sequel manga. Or so I have seen. Who were the interviews with on the DVD?

No its not, its only 26.

Episodes. O_o What else? That's one season, very normal in anime. Therefore, NOT long.

Actually, that's two seasons or half a year of episodes; if they follow an episode a week format.   There are fifty-two weeks in the year.  There are four seasons in a year, so one season must be three quaters of a year.  Thusly a season is thirteen weeks long, which would make it thirteen episodes per season.  We can then calculate that twenty-six is thirteen twice and therefore must be two seasons long.

Ok, an old 1 season. Now its two since they are making so many 12/13/14 episode series. So for instance, Trigun and Cowboy Bebop are each 1 season... and Ranma is 7, not 14. ^^;;
