#1 - The Women of the High Tower

Hell Girl - Season 1 - Episode 5

Tamura Misato is an employee for the online shop Dead Line and often has to work insanely long hours just to keep up with her heavy workload. Kaifu Riho is the president and founder of the company and is a complete dud when it comes to computers, but she lies and takes all the credit for Misato's computer knowledge as her own and threatens Misato with going public about her minor shoplifting stunt if she refuses to comply with her rules. Her employees, meanwhile, are absolutely clueless about the president's "true" talents and believe that she's created the successful company all on her own when she really did nothing to help the company become successful. She's even tried to summon Ai and company many times for her own selfish reasons, but they've refused to accept her request and instead have secretly been investigating her company (and her illegal tactics) right under her eyes.
