I just watched Red Data Girl and I have to admit, I am super confused. I had high hopes for this anime. It had potential but unfortunately, it is really bad at worldbuilding. I think that’s the main flaw of the series.

First off we have our main character, Suzuhara Izumiko who for some reason can’t interact with any electrical devices because if she does, all the electrical devices within the diameter of about one class will malfunction.

Because of this, two mountain monks by the name of Sagara Yukimasa and his son Sagara Miyuki are tasked to guard her from any harm especially from the shikigami.

In any case, I love Hina Festival. It’s one the funniest anime I’ve ever watched (The funniest is SKET Dance. I haven’t watched Gintama, I’m so sorry). Now I’ve even finished reading the manga until the latest chapter, waiting very patiently for more chapters to come. The characters are interesting, funny most of the time and have character growth.Most of the comedic timing is just perfect. It also has some very emotional and touching moments especially when (best girl) Anzu is on screen. Those are my favourite moments in the anime.
