Anime News Network, AKA ANN, has added another anime to their streaming list: Rideback. Rideback is pretty obscure, or so I’ve heard. ANN is┬ástreaming all 12 episodes subbed. No dub.

Rideback is based on a Seinen manga series of the same name by Tetsuro Kasahara, which was serialized in Gekkan IKKI from March 2003 to January 2009, and made 10 volumes. The anime ran on Chiba TV from January to March 2009 with 12 episodes, and was animated by Madhouse (Death Note, Gunslinger Girl). The anime was directed by Atsushi Takahashi (Nasu).

In North America, the anime is licensed by FUNimation, who plans to release the series in 2011. The manga is curently unlicensed. The anime and manga follows the story of female student Rin Ogata as she comes across a two-wheeled automobile robot known as a Rideback, and uses it to enter a tournament.
