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?

Mobile Suit Gundam 00

Mobile Suit Gundam 00

In the 24th century, the planet's fossil fuels have been completely consumed, forcing humanity to use solar power as the primary source of energy. A huge solar energy system orbiting the planet was eventually built, anchored to the Earth and providing it with power through three orbital space elevators. As a result of the expense of such a large-scale project, most the world consolidated into three factions: the Union, the Human Reform League, and the AEU. Despite their common reliance on the fragile orbital elevators for energy, however, humanity still continues to constantly fight wars and build up arms. A paramilitary organization called Celestial Being, equipped with incredibly powerful mobile suits called Gundams, fight in order to force humanity to unite and eradicate armed conflict.

Having fantastic animation geared towards flashy action scenes and a basic political plot, Gundam 00 should be right up your alley! Gundam 00 is basically Ride Back but bigger and better. While Gundam 00's mecha designs are more conventional, and it doesn't have and its main character is more of the same typical stoic shounen type rather than Ride Back's ballerina protagonist, it got a better conceived plot and a lot more stylish killer action. If it's an improved Ride Back you want, don't miss out on Gundam 00.

Planetes

Planetes

Psychological exploration, adult character development and the reliance on machines to further human kind; Planetes and Rideback are anime dealing with such things.  Watch either for some great mind candy.

Toshokan Sensou

Toshokan Sensou

The government has passed the Media Betterment Act, establishing a military police force to stop the spread of "negative influences harmful to society;" and in response, libraries have organized their own military units to protect freedom of expression. After being saved by a Library Defense Force agent in a bookstore, Kasahara is inspired to enlist in the Library Defense Force. Although she proves quite athletic and capable, she must endure the harsh but meaningful training of her instructor and superior officer, Doujou. As she learns how to be a good soldier, she participates in LDF operations, helping protect literary freedom for everyone.

Staring strong, independent, women working hard to overcome themselves to reach their potential.  Library War and Rideback explore issues relating to limitations and excesses.  Both offer adult characters with real relationships and a grown-up atmosphere.
