First Impressions – RDG: Red Data Girl

RDG: Red Data Girl


A modern fantasy based on Japanese Shinto legends. Suzuhara Izumiko is a 15-year-old girl, who has been raised and protected in a shrine deep in the Kumano Mountains. She is quite shy and destroys all the electric devices she touches. When she begins to think about going out of the mountains and moving to the city, her guardian Sagara Yukimasa recommends her to enter a high school in Tokyo and forces his son Miyuki to serve Izumiko for life. Miyuki and Izumiko repel each other but their relationship begins to change when a terrifying accident occurs on the school excursion. Izumiko learns her fate as the last representative (yorishiro) of a Himegami goddess and Miyuki learns of his duty as a guardian Yamabushi of Izumiko.   (Source: MAL)


Everyone is creating a great fuss about Izumiko’s hair.

So far, I’ve only watched the first episode even though three episodes are already out. As expected, great character designs and animation from PA Works. The story so far doesn’t make any sense to me but the character portrayal is quite something.

This show is an adaptation of an award-winning novel so it wouldn’t hurt if I’d expect something great from this show right? I dunno much, no, I dunno anything about Shinto legends and I won’t bother looking for it right now. I hope that that won’t be a bother in watching this show.


Not that good but also not that bad. Maybe I’ll continue with few more episodes.

  1. But, she has such lovely looking hair 😀 (not that has anything to do with why her hair is not be cut, lol)

    Eh, I am taking it one episode at a time rather than its pedigree not to get my hopes up. However, I am expecting great things from it ^^

Have a cup of tea and let's discuss!
