No matter how much you look at this, this show is pretty mysterious.
From watching the first episode, Red Data Girl looks very intriguing. In this episode, we took a glimpse of a girl named Izumiko Suzuhara who wants to become normal. One of the steps is of course cutting off her hair in the front, which everyone apparently freaks out about. I find this reaction rather odd since she now looks somewhat normal to me.
On the other hand, I can understand why she is so poor at using any type of technology. When I heard that she breaks two new cellphones instantly, she is definitely not normal. Of course, she manages to break all the computers and make the school lose power. I think it’s for the best since the school is using outdated technology. I mean, Windows XP and Internet Explorer 6? It’s not 2001 anymore! It’s time to upgrade to Windows 7! (Sorry, Windows 8 does not count.)
While the first episode doesn’t really reveal much on why mysterious things happen when she touches any piece of electronic, what is the meaning behind “himegami” (姫神, lit. Princess God)? Either way, I felt bad for her in this episode as she gets bulled quite a lot. Not only that, Miyuki, who is supposed to look after her had a history of bullying her during his childhood. I wonder if he will change after looking after her for some time. Not only that, the blue haired guy seems to be interested in her as well. We will find out about that and more in the near future.
(Also, do not post spoilers for the second and third episodes as they aired early.)
