The official website for the anime version of Tetsuro Kasahara's Rideback motorcycle robot manga has revamped itself with an official stream of its television ad. Rideback tells the story of a college student and her "iron horse" robot motorcycle in 2020, a tumultuous time of anti-government student protests. The advertisement features a song by the singer MELL (Black Lagoon, Hayate the Combat Butler, Shakugan no Shana). The website also includes new information about the story in the first episode, the characters in a relationship chart, and staff and cast listings. The original manga ran in Shogakukan's Ikki magazine from 2003 to 2008, and the 12-episode anime version will premiere in Japan on January 11.
