[AOW] RDG: Red Data Girl (3/31-4/6/2013)

Two episodes in, and I've learned not much about this Red Data Girl aka Izumiku; this could be a good way to go about the story or bad considering the series is only slated for an initial run of 12 episodes with no real sign that it will have a second season. I have seen a good amount of 12 episode anime, but they leave me feeling like I was gipped of a good ending or sometimes 12 episodes does work but honestly most of the time this short of a season leaves a series with an abrupt or rushed ending. You're probably wondering of that's the case, why am I featuring this after only seeing two episodes as AOW? Well, it's well animated and despite the slow starts this series seems like it can go somewhere.

Type: Novel Adaptation
Genre(s): Fantasy, Shrine Maidens
# of Episodes: 12
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.
