    R.O.D. the TV series (technically, it's suppose to be called Read Or Dream, but everyone refers to it as Read Or Die TV) is a true sequel to the Read Or Die OVA series, where the events of the TV series occur two or more years after the events of the OVA series. (And it does help to see the OVA series before the second half of the TV series, or you'll miss a lot of the plot twists and turns, where most of the original cast of the OVA series return...)

    Wasn't Read or Dream the name of the manga series that later became the ROD TV series?

    Adding to what LenMiyata said, Read or Die the OVA is only three episodes, so it won't take long to watch. That way you'll understand some of the things that might have slipped by you when you were watching ROD the TV.

    According to the production notes that were shipped with the DVDs for the TV series, the story lines between the Novels, the Manga series and OVAs were seperate, and one of the secondary purposes of the TV series was to provide some 'linkage' between the different stories.
