Description
In the year of 2025, an organization called the GGP has taken control of the world. Rin Ogata was a promising up-and-coming ballet dancer, but suffered a serious injury while dancing and decided to quit. Years later in college, she comes across a club building and soon finds herself intrigued by a transforming motorcycle-like robotic vehicle called a "Rideback". She soon finds that her unique ballet skills with balance and finesse make her a born natural on a Rideback. However, those same skills also get her into serious trouble with the government.

Note: Boncho Kuga wrote the spin-off light novel "RideBack - Cannonball Run" with art by KASAHARA Tetsuro in 2009.

Did you know that RideBack is a grimdark war drama?

The anime is fantastic and has beautiful animation but ended with a gecko ending that offered no real resolution to the conflict so i immediately looked up the manga and read it in one sitting. The show itself got very serious as it went along and the slice of life story gave away to one of social revolt. I have to warn though that this originating manga turns a more violent and ultimately dark corned along the road while even featuring a tasteful but surprisingly frank depiction of sex that i didn´t see coming. I also liked the Real Robot meets School Life crossover in act 1 but the transition to a borderline Kenrou Densetsu tale went over smoothly and i prefer the 2nd and 3rd act overall.
Rin is further a strong leading lady and her "terrorist" love interest is equality complex. The sketchy art is is just my thing and all the designs are very elaborate and memorable too. Tetsuro is a quality talent in the making even if he only writes about robots but that is cool with me and as he was recently chosen to draw the prestigious Atom - The Beginning (8,5/10). Every fan of 20 Seiki Shounen (10/10) or serious Seinen dramas should try this manga and let´s hope that it leave Japan in a completed form one day.

A semi-mecha kind of set up that I can actually get behind.

Except that oppressive government stories and naive protesters just make me sad. Glad that only 7 chapters were scanlated.
