The three Papermasters Michelle, Maggie and Anita have the
ability to control paper to make tools and weapons together
they form the Paper Sisters Detective Company. After a mauling
at the hands of the British Library it looks like the girls
don't stand a chance at stopping The British Library from
resurrecting their dead leader and enacting their plans of
so we come to the last disc, disc seven, of this series -
a series which started slow but finally picked up well.
twenty-four, You Know Me, and the girls are more than
a little annoyed, having discovered that they are clones;
can the girls get over their crisis of identity to get back
at the Joker? Will they even have time to turn the situation
around and stop the British Library's plan of world domination?
The surviving girls determine to travel to London to try and
stop Joker, but something is wrong, very wrong with London.
Alan Moore would love this episode as the girls discover that
London has been transformed by Mr Gentleman to resemble its
literary past. Dinosaurs from Doyle exist along side Martian
war machines from Well's War of the Worlds.
twenty-five, Not a Big Problem, and the power of the
British Library seems unassailable, it brushes off an attack
from the United States without a single loss. The resurrection
of Mr Gentleman continues unabated, waiting to be transferred
to Junior's brain. Meanwhile, the girls are having problems
of their own as they discover that time is not the same inside
London. While London is in the past, it is moving forward
in time too fast. If they can find any anomalous buildings
they believe that they will be able to find the heart of the
British Library. As the girls start their final assault against
Joker, do they really stand a chance? With most of the shows
revelations out of the way, the series goes for a couple of
exciting wrap-up episodes. This was a good penultimate episode
setting the scene for the girls
so to the last show of the series, From There On, and
it looks like there is little that the girls can do to stop
Joker. Yomiko, after having Joker at her mercy, cannot bring
herself to kill him and becomes another hostage. Unfortunately
for her Joker has no such qualms and demands the girls surrender
before he kills Yomiko. It looks like their mission is over,
with only the chance of a miracle to save the day. No, I'm
not going to spoil it by telling you how it all works out,
but you can bet that not all of the characters are going to
survive the experience.
the end of the day this was a very good show once it got into
the story proper. I loved the idea that a stuffy institution
like The British Library should be depicted as a neo-fascist
organisation bent on world domination. The length of the story
allowed the audience to really care about what happens to
the girls and the high level of animation was preserved throughout.
A good word has to be put in for the English vocal actors
who play their parts so well that you never really get the
idea that this is a dubbed show, and it's got to have the
coolest opening credits of any show.
extras on volume seven keep up the good quality that has been
the mark of the previous releases. First up is the commentary
with the Voice Director and three of the female voice actors
- these are always a lot of fun to listen to and a worthy
addition to the disc. There is another Art Gallery
for your perusal containing ten pictures. To complete the
extras you get a bunch of trailers, the Japanese episode previews
for the three on this disc and the DVD credits.
The visuals on the disc continues to show the good quality
of encoding, with the colours remaining crisp. Audio is either
English or Japanese 5.1 or Japanese stereo, subtitles are
included as well as a signs only option.
