Welcome to the RDG Red Data Girl discussion thread.
Come here to chat about the latest episodes, the characters, plot, or the series in general.

Genre: Fantasy, Romance

Alias: RDG Red Data Girl

Plot: The story is about a 15 year old girl named Izumiko Suzuhara. She was born and raised at Tamakura Shrine, and always destroys any electrical device she touches. She decides to try living in the city, and enrolls in Hōjō High School in Tokyo. With her are her guardians son and Izumiko's childhood friend Miyuki Sagara. While she's there, an entity called "Himegami" appears. She learns she something called a "kami" a vessel for a shinto spirit, while Miyuki is a "yamabushi", a warrior meant to protect the "kami."

Wiki Section

Main Pages: Manga | Anime | Franchise | Characters

To-Do List

Here's a list of things we want to do in the wiki, why not help cross some of them off? Also feel free to make suggestions.

  • Create character pages.
  • Add images and summaries to episode pages.

Important Pages

When editing the wiki (particularly episode and volume pages) it's helpful to use this section as a reference guide.

Locations
When adding locations, don't forget to add parent locations. For example, when adding Japan to an episode or volume, Earth should also be added. Locations appearing in flashback sequences generally don't count.

Recurring Pages: None so far

Objects
Objects should be specific rather than general, like Natsu's Scarf instead of just Scarf or Purgatory Armor instead of Plate Armor. General objects are being removed from the wiki.

Recurring Objects: None so far,

Concepts

Common: Humans, Flashback, Kami,

Specific: Yorishiro, Yamabushi

Yay! It's finally here. I thought the first episode was pretty good. Unlike Robotics;Notes, it jumps into the thick of the mystery part of the show pretty quickly. I'm going to watch episode 2 later.

If anyone's fluent enough with Japanese, Nico Nico Dongo's been streaming episodes a few weeks ahead of the TV air date. Presently, they're up to episode 5.

Otherwise, this looks to be my favorite anime title for the season thanks to the chemistry between Izumiko and Miyuki, as well as some mystery surrounding the kami that she is a host for. Looking forward to seeing where things go with the show in the weeks ahead.

@Acura_Max:

How's the new banner? I stole it from FUNimation and changed the code. I figured out how Daniel does his banners.

@Dream:

I couldn't find the link. Is it a legal site?

@Acura_Max:

Weird, it was cut off screen when I posted it. Now, it's fixed.

Was it you, ?

@takashichea: Wasn't me. Maybe you just needed to refresh the page.

Do you mind if I trim that banner? I'm trying to stick to 1516x280 banners for discussion threads. They take up less space and make good buttons for the community directory.

Sure! I'm still looking for that Henneko one. No luck there.

@takashichea: Site's here.

The show premieres at 7:30 AM Japan Standard Time Zone each Saturday, meaning roughly 11-14 hours behind for American viewers depending on which time zone you live in (8:30 PM on Friday for Eastern time zone for example). The site has a section that's kind of like having online TV as you can get a live stream of a program as it airs. You do need to have an account on the site to view content that came from live streams, which comes in free and premium accounts (these only being about $6 monthly). I believe you need a premium account to view the episode on the day it premieres.

Anyone else watching this series besides me? No one else? Ok, I'll just post my thoughts.

In episode 2, we learned that Izumiko is from a line from people who are easily possessed by spirits. In this episode, she appears to be controlled by a princess from the Showa era. So far, I'm really liking the mythology and the mystery aspects from the show. The preview for episode 3 looks like they are going to pull a "Sixth Sense" on us. Now that I think about it, the only time that anyone other than Izumiko had interacted with Satoru Wamiya was when a girl had mentioned that he/she was not on the plane.
