Do you love Japanese culture? Do you pour over books about Japan, or research online, in the hopes of visiting the country that produces some of your favorite series? Well, we’re about to drop a cultural lesson on you. If you’ve ever been interested in learning more about the religion, myths, and kami of Japan, here’s an introduction to these as they relate to Red Data Girl. Read on for some enlightenment.
Red Data Girl is a coming-of-age story painted in the beautiful colors of Japanese legends. If you like stories with a strong basis in exotic fantasy then you’re in for a real treat. The series is imbued with Shinto mysticism, some of which may be quite foreign to Western audiences (although certainly more familiar if you watch a lot of anime!). The series releases on DVD on June 17th. Click here to order!
