I have been enjoying fansubs of the Ride Back anime lately. Its got a lot of the feel of the '80s style of anime in it. Its original, something which is lacking in the current flood of moe anime. Ride Back feature a young college student (no high school kids, yay!!!!) named Rin Ogata, Rin is a very promising ballerina who suffers a career ending injury. To avoid a rainstorm one day on campus, Rin wanders into the Ride Back club house. Ride Backs are motorcycles that are articulated and change form into bipedal mecha and can use their arms to balance in turns.
