After only one episode, Rideback is already at the top of my list for favourite anime of the Winter season. The transforming motorcycle is just too cool! It reminded me of the motorcycle mecha in Genesis Climber Mospeada which was amalgamated into the Robotech series in North America. The big difference is that the mecha in Rideback does not enclose the rider so the experience is closer to that of a regular motorcycle. There have been a few series recently that feature open frame mecha so it might a trend. The series has an interesting main character but it only has 12 episodes, so I expect the plot will develop quickly. The first episode drew attention to the political situation, so it must be relevant later in the story.
