I couldn't find a Red Data Girl discussion thread so I made one.
But if there is one, feel free to tell me and lock this one up.

Anyhow, I was watching Red Data Girl.

For some reason, I do not understand what is going on at all.

I mean, Izumiko is obviously a vessel for a kami and Miyuki is obviously her knight, protecter or whatever you call it.

But the school, it's a place for all spiritual people? Or people who are important?

And the Souda's. What are they? I thought they were twins? Now, they are triplets? What did episode 5 tried to say?

Why did the Kami ask Miyuki to not let Izumiko be a goddess? And why let human perish?

Who is that Kabuki guy? What is with the student council and their president? What is up with that Takanagi guy?

WHAT?

Obviously, I do not understand.

But everyone else seem to understand. So if someone can clarify things for me, please do.

As much as I like this series, I can't understand it at all.

Kind of a meh series but I like the premise of the show. I've been watching it on Nico Nico since it began airing last month and so far, it's alright but for compared to some of its other P.A. Works, it's kinda meh.

Second episode was actually suspenseful. Haven't read the novels or anything but the show has a lot of potential. It's really up in the air as to where the show will ultimately go. Hoping for more of the paranormal mystery aspect than the slice of life it could go into.

Yes, I do like the premise of the show. That's the whole reason why I keep watching.
But it's getting annoying that I don't really understand what's going on.

Agreed. It has so much potential and I really love the paranormal mystery aspect too.

The slice of life....meh. Have watched much better slice of life. But do you understand what's going on in this show?

I've only seen the first episode, and won't be watching the second until Wednesday when I think it will be up on Funi, and I get the impression that kufirst has only watched through episode 2. That early in a season I expect to still be (for me, comfortably) not sure about a lot of things--and waiting for them to be revealed. In fact having things be not completely clear for several episodes doesn't especially bother me, and I can enjoy that state of wondering.

But, if you're already five episodes in and are feeling completely lost, I don't know what to say (and since I haven't seen more episodes, can't even offer my take on things).

Yup, I am five episodes in and I feel very lost.

I don't really like being confused. It's ok to have questions but to not know what is going on, now that annoys me.

The premise holds alot of promise and potential. This is the main reason why I watch it but it's starting to disappoint me because I don't really understand what's going on.
If someone can explain to me what's going on, maybe, I will like it more.

But I will still watch it because it still looks interesting.

I've got a grasp on some of it. But, I think by design it keeps you off guard about what the true story is until further details are made known. Definitely enjoy watching it.

I'm under the impression that the school is specifically for "spiritual people". And that if you have any relations with a student there, you could get in, forgoing the entrance exams, like Izumiko and Manatsu.
And the Souda's. What are they? I thought they were twins? Now, they are triplets? What did episode 5 tried to say?
Masumi died during childhood but his spirit stayed with Mayura and Manatsu. From what I remember, episode 5 showed us Souda triplets>Takayanagi>Miyuki. Miyuki worries if he's strong enough to protect Izumiko, and warns Izumiko to keep her identity a secret even to the Soudas.
Why did the Kami ask Miyuki to not let Izumiko be a goddess? And why let human perish?
This, we have to keep watching to find out.
Who is that Kabuki guy? What is with the student council and their president? What is up with that Takanagi guy?
That Kabuki guy was the first generation student council president and even in his retired state, he still holds the power of that position. He knew Izumiko's identity as the Himegami vessel. When Himegami appears, she said something about having seen this guy in a previous lifetime. So I guess his interest in Izumiko was related to his desire to meet (or maybe even serve) Himegami in said previous life. Takayanagi tried to use that website of his to get students to vote for him in the upcoming student president election, but now failed to. (I like Wamiya way more.)

I don't know if the above answered any of your questions clearly. We're only 5 episodes in, I'm sure we'll know more sooner or later. The mystery is part of the fun.

Well said above. Agree that the mystery is what makes this fun watching.

Thank you so much for answering my questions. Now I understand a lot more and I do feel like an idiot that I couldn't understand.

Ah, Masumi spirit lives despite being dead. And I was wondering what was going on. But I really like the Souda now. And I really want to know more about them.

Don't really like Takayanagi either. I miss Wamiya too. TwT

Hmmm...the Kabuki guy. Wonder why he is still the president despite being retired.

A spiritual school. Hmmm...interesting.

Even though it's all still very mysterious, at least, I understand better now.

And yes, I will continue to watch this just to see how it goes.

But if I have anymore questions or confusion, I will be back to ask more. XD

Hmm, just watched eps. 4 and 5. It's pretty obvious that everything is still supposed to be a mystery at this point because they keep introducing lots of characters; some of whom they explicitly tell you the backstories for and others whose purposes are a bit more shrouded. Plus, it seems that Yukimasa, Hodaka and the Goddess all have their own separate and veiled motives.

So it's perfectly fine to be thrown off by all that's going on at this point in the show because that's just the writers doing their jobs.

I really like this anime. The plot is quite mysterious which is the good part about it. I've noticed that you really have to pay close attention to it since it doesn't repeat itself often like most series tend to do. I can see why they wanted to send Izumiko to Houjou is, because that the students there have some sort of special ability. I'm not sure if they all do, but who Izumiko has meet so far there have something about them. I think in the coming weeks it should be more clear what's going on and it'll be interesting to see how it plays out.

Episodes 1-3 now up on Funimation!

Edit: and with episode 3 and the preview for the next one I say it is getting good now which is nice as I had high hopes for this one before the season started.

I really feel that RDG has it all. Beautiful art, atmosphere to spare, character development is already happening, and the story seems to have some serious meat to it. Izumiko's dance at the end of episode 3 was stunning.
