The show, which features a stellar voice cast headed by Tia Lynn Ballard, Stephanie Young, and Bryan Massey, is set in a near-future world that is dominated by a military organization known as the Global Government, which has the power to control and monitor the lives of its citizens through various means.

The story follows the life of a talented ballet dancer named Rin Ogata, who has to give up her dreams of becoming a professional dancer after a gruesome injury. However, all is not lost for Rin as she soon discovers that she has an innate talent for riding Ridebacks, which are advanced machines designed to move like motorcycles but have the ability to transform into humanoid machines capable of executing complex movements and maneuvers.

The show's soundtrack is also top-notch, featuring a mix of electronic, rock, and classical music that perfectly complements the series' high-octane action sequences and emotional moments.
