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.

Stories aren't always about narratives. Sometimes, we can discover more ideas by ourselves if we put our efforts through. And of course, discovery comes from experiences. For a certain shy and dull looking (I think she's cute though) girl according to her peers, she's about to experience some whole new changes in her life.

Her name is Izumiko Suzuhara, the Red Data Girl.

RDG: Red Data Girl is an anime series adapted from the light novel of the same name written by Noriko Ogiwara (The Good Witch of the West). Her talent of writing involves in the field of fantasy and supernatural so expect some of those read more

I was really excited to try out this new anime this season. I saw its description on this website, and I thought "okay, that sounds really interesting. A romance between a goddess girl who can't touch electricity and her servant protector of sorts." I even liked the first episode and thought the main character could become one of my favourites eventually. My only complaint was that I couldn't make much sense of the anime. But I figured that they would end up explaining things eventually, as it's only a 12 episode anime. 7 episodes in, and I have no idea what the hell is going read more

I'm supposed to be studying right now but whatever.

Okay, unlike the majority of the reviews, I actually liked Red Data Girl. It's surprising 'cause I'm easily influenced by the reviews here on MAL. Before I watch an anime or read a manga, I always check MAL and read the reviews so as to see if it the said anime/manga is worth it.

But before I read the reviews on RDG, I watched a few episodes of it. And well, I really liked it. I think the best factor that got me hooked into the anime was the art (and maybe Miyuki /shot xD) and also the read more

RDG: Red Data Girl: Too Much Data And Not Enough Storage

I have to say that this might be the first time I'm genuinely disappointed with a P.A. Works anime. After creating some wildly successful series like Angel Beats and Another, I had reason to believe that P.A. Works could be developing into a strong production company. Unfortunately, I have to chalk RDG up as a dud in their repertoire. I thought with the plot that this series had, it had to the potential to be really good but fell flat in the two biggest aspects...it's story and it's characters.

The biggest problem with this series is read more

Both share the same kind of feelings

Anime: Kamisama Hajimemashita
- goddess-guardian relationship
- at first the male servant is unwilling but then acknowledge their duty
- both servant are rude to the heroine! but actually they have kind heart ^^
- shoujo genre!! from goddess-guardian to love relationship (>▿<ʃƪ) ♥
- Nanami personality is more fun, Izumiko is too...damsel in distress

Anime: Inu x Boku SS
Inu X Boku and RDG are similar in the fantasy element they both share. Both have a female protagonist with a male love interest also main character. Both shows are visually appealing and involve ancestry. 
reportRecommended by Nikoru-san
Anime: Shinreigari: Ghost Hound
RDG gives quite the spirit vibe which is also very nicely expressed in Hound. Both series give me such an intensity and both series are great.

Anime: Fruits Basket
Main girl character reminds me of Tohru Honda.
The other characters seem to have animal forms like in Fruit Basket. 
reportRecommended by AnimeFan500
Anime: Kyoukai no Kanata
These two anime are similar in the aspect of supernatural, spirituality, and the growth of the characters due to those things.

They both have a boy that meets a girl with supernatural powers and each affects one another somehow.
