Rideback 12

Episode 12 (8.5/10 Really Great!)
After fire comes snow… Fuego was able to give Rin what she needed to create her own path. I was pretty happy with Rideback’s finale, although, it’s obvious that Rideback wasn’t very ambitious. They didn’t try to create a heart-pounding drama; everything is quieter, subtler. I think this entire story was just about Rin getting back on her feet – the GGP, political scandal, and explosions were just extras. When it came down to it, Rideback was a presentation of emotional philosophy. Though, we did get to see Okakura dive in and save Rin. I probably give him more credit in this show than others. By the way, those whitebacks are like a cross between Storm Troopers and tachikoma…
Suggestive Content:
We see Rin’s underwear several times.
