RDG: Red Data Girl

RDG: Red Data Girl (RDG レッドデータガール)
The story, animation, and style of this are strong, with a firm use of subtext- All work together with solid voice acting to convey very quickly that nothing is as simple as it seems, and there are many mysteries here yet to be unveiled. This appears to primarily be a character drama, so no action thus far. The characters thus far are interesting, though a bit polarized- but it’s only episode 1, so that’s not unusual. It starts out very quickly though to set itself apart from other anime in style, by showing through example that even in japanese anime, mouthy teenage brats can be physically punished- something I don’t think I’ve seen in any other anime except in comedic context.

I’m not necessarily endorsing this- just stating that all other anime go the easier ‘talk nice it’ll all work out route’. I expect in the future there may be many more diverse and extreme characters as well. Between what you’re given in the intro, what you’re told in this episode, and what you can imagine might happen, this does promise to be quite an interesting anime in the future. (by bloggbigg@mal)
