Anime on Demand to simulcast new XEBEC series in January.
In an interview with Otaku News to be posted later today, KazéUK rep Andrew Partridge announced that the UK/Ireland anime streaming site, Anime On Demand, will simulcast the series Lagrange - The Flower of Rin-ne with a slight delay behind the Japanese broadcast.
Anime News Network describes Rin-ne as:
Madoka is the lone member of her school's Jersey Club. She is one day recruited by a mysterious girl named Lan to pilot the robot "Vox" and protect her city from space invaders. They are joined by a third girl, Muginami, who has a different goal than Ran. Meanwhile, they still don't know their enemies' true goal, or what "Rinne" might be.
The series is projected to have twelve episodes and the series is being simulcast in the United States by Viz at the Viz Anime site and on the Hulu Plus service.
UPDATE: In the interview, Andrew clarified that the delay will be with the initial episodes and afterward will have a regular release pattern in line with the VIZ simulcast.
