the "date" scene was pretty awesome.

Psh, you and your reason. I did think that the point of him actually dribbling was to show what bball was actually like?

I'm taken by the design. the city is pretty funky, and classic car robots?! seriously. But I hope it doesn't get too sport-y, it just doesn't seem like it'll be interesting to watch prolonged matches of robo basketball, especially when people can just double dribble when they want to ;p

Woooo!

I liked this a lot I think it has buckets of potential. It's Gurren Lagann meets Tekkon Kinkreet goes basketball by way of hip-hop it's funny and cool and pretty stylish and well animated; at the core are a hoard of shonen cliches but they're well executed again in a rather Gurren Lagann-esque fashion.

Fun stuff I'm glad I checked this out I'll be coming back for more.

Just watched the first episode, and it has to have some of the most gorgeous backgrounds I have ever seen in an anime. Premise seems good enough, execution is brilliant, and it looks like the next episode will be even better.

Pleasantly surprised and will definitely be making this a weekly watch.

My only real complaint about the episode was a little too big of a focus on Miyuki's chest but hey-ho.

You and I, two completely different wavelengths. That was one thing that got me thinking TTGL especially, that's some actually amusing ecchi humour right there.

My own reservations would be, well, the premise going stale fast and losing its sheen of cool. A whole lot of stuff happened in the first episode but will future installments tank Ride Back-edly into mediocre recitations of tournament formula? Basquash needs just a little more than it's shown me to really succeed, but here's hoping it does so.

Worse still what if it goes for genuine emotional pathos? The emotional core of this series is ridiculously cliched and could quickly become bathetic if it can't balance its silliness well.
