5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good 26 Jan 2012
By T. R. Alexander TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Rin Ogata was an up-and-coming ballerina but when an injury forced her to give up dancing she found her life somewhat unfulfilling. When she enters university she discovers the RideBack Club and when she tries to ride one of these unusual machines she discovers that she has a natural talent and grows to love the feeling of riding. Meanwhile, terrorist organisations and the corrupt and oppressive GGP who begin to use RideBacks for their own purposes and Rin slowly begins to be drawn into the conflict between the two.

I didn't know anything about this series before I started watching it and I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed it. The RideBacks themselves are a nice mix of motorbike and mecha and I did like many of the characters, especially Rin. The animation was good and the English dub is reasonable as well. The setting is interesting and although the plot is good, I feel it could have been just as good if the series had stuck with the racing element from the beginning of the series rather than gone the armed rebellion route. The only real problem with the series is that it is only twelve episodes long and it is all over far too soon.

This was a very nice series and I feel it deserves four and a half to five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ride forward too. 8 Feb 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is all about balance.A talented ballet dancer breaks a leg and has to retire from competitive performing.
Next thing we know,a friend of a friend asks her to try to use her knowledge of ballet,and how the body attains some of the moves,to instruct riders of a new contraption.It's like learning to control stunts on a skateboard,but motorised.
There's a meaningful scene where our protagonist disappears over the brink of some steps.
She disappears from view and everybody thinks the worst and rightly so.
What were they thinking ?!
Still,luckily,because she's used to recovering her balance during ballet.......,
She survives ! It gives her the rush she remembered from ballet after a brilliant performance and...,yep..,she's hooked !
There are some rivals who've been riding longer but none better.
That's the theme of this film.Overcoming obstacles in more ways than one.
The DVD cover of a dynamic girl on wheels is about right.Of course,having long flowing hair helps.
It's madder than a motorbike and as graceful (if you've got what it takes) as ballet.
