Cartoons are for Kids

this tagline is hilarious

Tamaya is the Top!? Spread Legs Form

This is not a joke. That is Rideback 02’s title.

Giggling at unintentional innuendo aside let’s talk about Rideback because it’s still awesome.

Things happen, and the gruff, manly acting blonde bombshell challenges brunette ballerina to a showdown in the rideback club’s innapropriately Christmas-colored ridebacks.

Rin once again pilot’s rides the semi-intelligent spanish motorcycle droid, and Tamaya (here on out referred to as Butch) rides the RBZ, a generically named machine that is seemingly an exact carbon-copy of Fuego, minus the brain and Latin-American name (making it 100x less cool).

The story so far seems to be heading in a rather lame “Aim to be the best in Japan!” sort of direction, but I still have hopes. RIn doesn’t seem to be super-competitive, or boast a lot, so it might not be painfully lolpowerlevels and stuff. I also  still harbor a deep desire for the military Ridebacks in the OP to be a clue that the story veers away from the direction it’s heading and on towards a (hopefully) much more interesting one.

A list because I can:

  • Glasses girl is so loud it warranted me turning the volume on my system down. Nice going.
  • Butch couldn’t sound more like she was trying to be a man if she was on a steroid regiment.
  • Soundtrack, when not being drowned out by glasses girl’s fangirling, is very super-good. I hope there’s an OST release soon. The OP/ED aren’t bad either, but omfg the OP sounds like Kotoko instead of Mell.
  • Oh yeah, Aniyoshi is subbing it too, so there’ll be a good quality release to archive. Stoked.
