I was checking the preview for episode 3 which looks like Rin's first tournament. I saw a couple screens of riders using the arms on the Ride Back to bring down other riders. Can someone confirm for me? and i wonder if its legal during a race to do it.

I'm sure you could find it if you looked around a few shops that sell bathroom products.

Eh, they're really throwing it all off, aren't they? Animation was astounding in episode two.

Still the story doesn't seem to start yet. Background-setting episodes are good for 2-cour series, but I wonder if they'll manage to put everything they've hinted at the OP and the beginning of both episodes in a short cour.

And count me in as one of the people who loved Rin's "come here, bitch!" face. For all her apparent clichéd moe/shy attitude, the girl actually seems to have a spine for a change. I also liked her short conversation with her brother, so much that I really hadn't noticed it was her until they showed so.

WanderingKnight: Yeah, I think we saw in ep 2 that there's a fairly clear competitive streak to Rin, which explains why she was such a success in her ballet pursuits. It's the sort of thing that complements her natural talent, so the two ingredients definitely set her up to be prone to success.

The pacing is a very interesting issue, and, as you point out, we're still very much at the beginning of this story. I, too, think that if there were 2 cour, there'd be more breathing room to set up things and really take time to explore the setting and the characters, but we'll see how things go with the very limited time they have to play with. It's certainly been a very good action series so far, helped no end by the excellent animation and an engrossing atmosphere which is something Madhouse has a reputation for excelling in.

The download count for RideBack has been freakishly good though. In the leagues of 10,000+, but that's a low estimate on my part.

All I can say at this point is that I'm going to be interested in seeing how Rin gets dragged into the political situation. The big question will be what'll motivate her to voluntarily join because she looks too mild-mannered and not as hardened as Tamayo. But then again, from looking at her, you'd never know that she's that gutsy or competitively-minded either. Nice to see a non-archetypical female character in Rin at the very least.

Tamayo is a literature major, while Rin was once a highly competitive ballet dancer. Both are university students and, apparently, there are rumblings of popular dissent against the imminent arrival of GGP's white ridebacks. Methinks political protests are just around the corner, and being the idealistic youths that they are, certain college students are probably going to be at the forefront of that movement.

Too bad, I came first.

How about using this one I made earlier?

I have a feeling the advisor to the RideBack club is a member of the anti-GGP organisation. Even his RideBack looks heavy enough to be a military model. Though in Spread legs form it probably looks like a Vespa.

Actually, I think Tamayo and the advisor could be anti-GGP. Tamayo did too detailed of a background check on Rin just to be a club member. Universities are historical sites of protests.

I saw some impressive formshifting by Tamayo and Rin.In my opinion,adapting to circumstances is what good transforming mecha is all about.
