I found some KLK, some Yozakura Quartet, and a bit of Kyousogiga in there.

I thoroughly enjoyed all three of those shows, so my hopes are high. Seriously, Green Ranger vs Safety Pin was awesome. The whole episode was just the kind of thing I really enjoy.

Well, made it 3 minutes in. Not really interested but maybe i'll try at a later time. That back and forth with the Green Ranger and the woman was just...pass.

Please excuse me as I copy-paste a bit of a Twitter rant here:

The more I watch of The Rolling Girls, the less I feel it warrants comparisons to Kill la Kill. KLK was brute force; but TRG has a much softer feel. I'm not talking about just the visuals here. The very natures of those two shows are different. The similarities are extremely superficial. As in, like, just the effects animation. And that's it. Rampant craziness isn't a genre KLK invented. TRG doesn't even subscribe to the same school of craziness as KLK. Of course, I didn't like KLK all that much and I really like (or want to like) TRG. So you could say I'm biased.

I am so glad I picked this up. I was expecting girls on bikes, but I got waaaaaaay more than this. In fact, the first 10 minutes or so got me grinning like a goddamn idiot. That's how much I loved the first episode. Crazy fun. I can't wait for more.

EP 1 King of Rookies

Happy what a great surprise dont think just enjoy it!

The Animation is so detailed and has elements similar To Kyousogiga ( colors)/ Kiil la Kill ( The Panel and Fight Scenes) / Seitokai Yakuindomo (Detail) and Yozakura Quartet: Hana no Uta ( other Scenes )



The Story With gangs and Bikes DRRR / fight scenes Kill ka Kill / the life styles Yozakura Quartet: Hana no Uta the office, food scenes / the Characters

Now I got into this so easily after watching Kamikaze Girls a great movie about female bike gangs thrown in with a slice of life . This was cool movie!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kamikaze_Girls

Fighting over territory / Mt Fuji





Very good Fight scenes



The Rookie / Future Hero Nozomi



The Ramen Showdown!

Episode 1

Oh man, I'm going to like this one. I knew when I saw the preview weeks ago that this would be one I would like. I got a KLK, Kyousogiga, and Zvezda vibe from this show. I really enjoyed it.

Such an interesting setting and the battles for territories is kind of interesting, I'm definitely looking forward to more.

Wit Studio is looking like they'll be studio I'm gonna like: first AoT, now this, and then Seraph of the End. Their animation style is really kickass too. AoT was fairly gritty, but they've done a good job with the all the bright and vibrant colors. Rolling Girls's animation style and character designs is like a clash of KyoAni and Trigger. I got that impression at least.

Anyways, this gets a stamp of approval:

The vibe I got is FLCL, and that's why I said that it felt like something Gainax once did.

There are a few recent shows that can be found here, honestly. While the animation nature and some of the "craziness" in the fights can bring back memories of Kill la Kill, the bright colors and setting are almost certainly reminiscent of Kyousogiga and the overall tone and characters bring back strong YZQ memories, as I mentioned earlier. Oddly enough, all three of these shows are from Fall 2013.

There's nothing particularly wrong with comparing parts of the show with Kill la Kill, as it genuinely did feel similar at times. The only thing the Rolling Girls seemed to lack was the hot blood and sense of PANIC that seemed present in KLK on many occasions. Even so, there are people drawing for more comparisons than is necessary or sensible, which can be annoying, even for someone who enjoyed KLK like myself.

I hope I didnt imply anything close to KLK / more as a reference and more when they used like a comic panel to describe the cast! ! The fight scenes were cool enough in this anime!

Of course the colors come to mind with Kyousogiga !

And the slice of life aspect as in YZQ. The office and ramen scenes were familiar!

But why I said that because it brought a big smile to my face that it reminded me of those cool animes ! And to put similiar themes all into one anime is no easy feat! It was a quick comparsion such as Anime Planet uses that's all!

BTW watched a movie Kamikaze Girls about Girl Bike gangs and a slice of life girl which more than prepped me for this!

As a biker I like this show just for this. Some great old classic 2 wheelers in this show!

Final thought what is really cool we have two Bike / street gangs this winter This and DRRR 2. Each more than can stand on their own!

The action style is the only thing I'd compare to KLK. And Wit hasn't let it run away with the show, which is a plus.
