Synopsis:

Amidst the turbulent revolution of 2025 wrought by the GGP government, Rin Ogata only dreams of becoming a ballerina; like her mother before her, Rin’s grace and agility mean she’s destined for success on the stage. However, an injury and the untimely death of her parents quickly shatter her aspirations and, for once, Rin’s existence seems purposeless. That is, until she enters the garage of a club one day and sits astride a RideBack! The RideBack, a motorcycle with arms and the ability to stand upright, offers Rin a new world of boundless movement! What she doesn’t realize, however, is that this club of RideBack enthusiasts is about to get dragged into the bloody war between the GGP and the terrorists intent on overthrowing them. Life may be more exciting now, but it’s also become very dangerous: will Rin’s natural talents as a pilot be enough in a world where racing is not just for glory, but for survival?

Air Gear

Air Gear

What if roller skates had high power engines that enabled the skaters to do stunning new tricks that defy gravity? What if you saw a beautiful girl effortlessly glide through the air with them? To Ikki, this is reason enough to secretly borrow a pair of Air Treck skates, and step into an underground world filled with gang fights and strange customs. Enamored with high-flying stunts and the flirtatious Simca, Ikki forms an Air Treck gang of his own and starts a life of fighting rival gangs and flying over the rooftops, chasing the girl always one kick ahead of him.

Air Gear, and Ride Back, both anime have something revolving around "Roads", as well as both have racing, talent, and involve flips very few people can seem to do. If you like one, you will probably like the other..

Both of these anime involve the protagonist becoming involved in a "sport" that involves high-powered machines. However, they come head-to-head with the other "players" because of their (the protagonist's) unique style. There is also a running plot about the government's desire to regulate the machines in both anime.

Both of these anime are centered around school-age protagonists finding themselves caught in the battle between a New World Order and the rebels seeking their downfall. Both involve a mech (or mech-lite) device that is used on both sides of the playing field, and a guy who refers to people in chess terms. With political tension, bitter rivalries wrapped in the past, and intriguing stories, these anime are quite similar.

Both have a theme of occupation and new mechs technology bribing occupynag countries an edge in combat. Both follow an underground resistance movement 

Canaan

Canaan

In the present day, terrorism is on the rise and the Ua Virus – a biological agent with a 100% kill rate – has been unleashed into the populace. In Shanghai, Canaan is a near-unstoppable soldier who roams the streets, always in the path of a bullet. She is a Synesthetist – a person able to use all five senses at once – who harbors a burning desire for revenge and has a past shrouded in mystery. While the Ua Virus infects more people in the city, others cross paths with Canaan including Minoru, a freelance journalist; Maria, Canaan’s close friend who was infected with the Ua Virus and lost her memory of the incident; and The Snakes, a shady and violent group with mysterious motives. Danger lies at every turn for Canaan and ultimately the rest of mankind…

Both Canaan and RideBack focus on a female protagonist who begins the story as a somewhat naive individual, but who matures over the course of the story into a mature, determined young woman. Both series are serious in tone, and have quite dark moments, featuring as they do a corrupt government system that is abusing the people under its care. In short, if you enjoyed the one, with its action and strong characters and excellent animation, you'll surely enjoy the other!

I was surprised that no one has compared these two in the recs, but they have a similar feel to me. Yes, one is street racing cars and the other is motorcycle mecha, but both deal with unlikely youths that have an in-born genius for driving their respective vehicles.  They both must learn more of the world they are in and themselves with each new race/battle.
