Editorial Reviews

Atop her robotic RideBack motorcycle, an ex-dancer ignites the fires of rebellion in a nation held captive by its own oppressive government.

After an injury forces Rin to trade her stage career for college life, she finds new thrills as a member of the RideBack Club. When she discovers an unusual connection with one machine in particular – Fuego – she is forced into the middle of a revolution. The tyrannical new government rules with an iron fist, and Rin is reluctant to take them on. But as her dearest friends suffer, and the insurgency struggles to topple the increasingly powerful regime, Rin may have no choice but to gun Fuego’s engines and speed directly into the heart of the fight for freedom.

• Limited Edition release will contain an EXCLUSIVE keychain created by Great Eastern (while supplies last)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great show January 11, 2011
By NC
Format:Blu-ray
Originally passed Rideback up when it was airing. Then some people convinced me to check it out. They were right. This is a great show. Its a mix of mecha with motorcycle racing, and then dancing...sounds odd but it mixes well. There is a fair deal of action as well as some great characters and story. Plus Mell does the opening theme song. If you've seen Black Lagoon you've heard her before. She did the opening theme to that anime too. This time she does a bit of a racing beat which works real well. Great stuff.

Right now the only downside I'm seeing to this release is the price. This is not a full 24-26 episode anime. Rideback is only 12 episodes. Plus if you like dubs, currently it is listed as being Japanese only. For $65, its a bit steep. This series should be in the $30-$40 price range. Hopefully they'll lower it before release. But even then, you can't really do wrong picking up this series, it is one of those rare gems in anime and its unfortunate that it only ran for 12 episodes.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Surprised Me... May 22, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I read the reviews and liked what I read but I wondered about the end. As I watched the series, I noted that the series seemed to be heading toward a head on crash at the end. You know, where everyone either gets killed or damaged beyond repair in the end. Well, I must say, after taking you thru what looks to be a huge disaster turns out so well, that I really was very impressed with it. I very much suggest buying this series if you like happy endings where not everybody gets tore up before the end. I really good series to watch even if it's short.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good May 6, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
Despite the impressions you might glean from the trailer or the cover art, this is an exceptional anime with wonderful animation, great characters and characterization, an appropriate soundtrack, and a good, suspenseful story with a very effective pacing that gives it an extraordinary vitality. Mind you, I'm only on episode six, but I can tell that this series will only disappoint by being too short.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic July 9, 2011
By Tizmah
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I really thought this was a wonderful anime. There should definitely be more reviews! It really is a gem. The animation, story, and character development are superb. I personally love short anime series (Past 21 episodes I think is to much to tell a great story. After than you end up being to "wordy" and wasteful filler episodes) At the same time I wish this was 21 episodes at least. Maybe that is for the best though because the twelve episodes tell what they need to. It's just when you see great character development, you hate to leave those characters. I wish we could have seen more action with the Ridebacks, but that's mainly because I think they are pretty cool. But this series isn't about the action really. It's about the characters and their story to tell.

It's good also to watch an anime that doesn't have constant pantie shots and all that tacky garbage. There's plenty of opportunity they could have done long, slow motion pantie shots, but this anime actually takes itself seriously and doesn't pull of those lame cliches and degradation of women. Pantie shots are so over done in anime it's just beyond...plain immaturity of the industry. But enough about that!

The anime starts off happy at the beginning, but once you reach the 2nd disc, prepare for some sadness.

Buy it!

3.0 out of 5 stars The last three episodes are meaningful August 17, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Rideback is misleading from the very first trailer that I saw, or maybe FUNimation knows how to market to its consumers; but whatever the case-the series is not very good. The opening 9 episodes are slow, dull, and listless and tiresome on the eyes. The animation quality is mediocre at best, especially for a 2011 Blue Ray. The plot only picks up and starts to move at around episode 9 and then floors itself into episode 11 and 12 the best episodes. This is a story of a girl who falls of a horse and needs a help getting back on, that's the jist of the story. The horse would be her ballet and the help would be the rideback; fair, easy, not convoluted at ll. Yet the people she meets on her way are shallow and under developed, which makes you not care for them when the anime tries to have an emotional connection. The series was a letdown for me, and I wish it would have been released as an OVA summarizing the first 9 episodes than starting from episode 10.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Anime - Bad Box Design - Get only for key chain February 27, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I personally love this anime. Good plot, story, and character development. Animation quality is good too. No complaints about the series, except maybe being too short. If you can get this series for a decent price (currently $44 for this product as of this review) I'd recommend picking it up. Especially Blu-Ray. I would give this product 5 stars normally except for reason stated below.

My complaint is box design.

The box is designed like large boxes that hold trilogies or TV seasons such as Star Wars or *insert your favorite TV box series here*. It's big enough for 2 DVD cases. The problem is, it's a waste of material / space for what is included after the product is opened. It comes with two items inside. A normal sized plastic DVD case. This has case has 6 discs inside. 2 for DVD and 4 for blu-ray. The second case is the same size but is made out extremely thin flimsy cardboard insert that contains the key chain. What do you normally do with a flimsy piece of cardboard that you don't need? Recycle it or throw it out of course.

So now you have a nice large box to contain two DVD cases, that now only contains one. A waste of space and material. I like the box so I kept key chain case and stuck it back in there so they fit. But after sitting on my shelf of over DVD's of anime it gets squished warped. For now it's fine, but one day it's going to be chucked due to wear and tear and so will the nice large hard cardboard case with nice art on it.
