Random Anime Picture #36

-RideBack, ep02

I didn't expect to like this show.  Girls on motorcycle-like things?  With an evil dictator-level government dominating the world?  Feh... I've seen it already, when it was called Bubblegum Crisis (or BGC2040 for that matter).  It was good then, but RideBack ain't no BGC.

It might be better.  It's hard to say after just two episodes, of course.  Rin, our heroine, is less Priss and more Linna, which is a good thing... I didn't much like Priss in either version of BGC, to be frank.

Here's the kicker: Rin is the talented daughter of a prima ballerina, but she retires from ballet after tearing the ligaments in one of her ankles.  Tah-dah, she discovers the world of RideBacks: half-motorcycle, half-mecha, that she can make DANCE.  Literally.  The screenshot above is as she finishes a pirouetting leap off the wall of the building behind her... at 70mph. 

Yeah, the concept sounded lame to me, too.  But I'll admit it: I like it more than Kurokami right now.

(Not Quite) Random Anime Picture #35

Can you call it "random" when you have to piece it together from three screenshots? 
-Kurokami, ep02

Second episode of the series was as good as the first, and almost as brutal with the violence.  A writeup will come soon, after I digest it.

Why is Puni-puni eating cabbage?

Too much pre-fight chili, I guess.
