Did you expect me to write something witty or clever in this intro for my new review? Well the joke's on you because I'm never witty or clever, just long-winded and irritating. Yeah, nothing to report about my life, just that I'm still wishing I had more time to play games (I still need to beat Bravely Default) and I have increased the number of games that is sitting on my shelf untouched. Anyway, now it's time to review an anime about robot motorcycles and stupid evil world governments.

Rideback had potential. It was fun and heartwarming for the first few episodes, but like Robotics;Notes it got swept up in an unnecessary government conspiracy plotline. And unlike Robotics;Notes, where you still had the fun "let's build a giant robot" plot throughout the series, Rideback completely drops it's initial themes and focuses solely on this dumb coup d'etat. It's not completely terrible, but it isn't as much fun as it really could have been if they just focused on the sports aspect. Limited Recommendation.
Until Next Time.
