Library Video of the Week, October 17, 2011.

Riding Bean Rules the Road created by Sonoda Kenichi, directed by Hasegawa Yasuo.  Library Call Number: PN1997.5.S87R52 2002.
        An anime classic, with designs by the iconic Sonoda Kenichi, Riding Bean has all the action and style of a classic in the genre and could have been the inspiration for Jason Statham’s Transporter movies.
      The Product description states: "In Chicago, ace courier Bean Bandit rules the road, and operates on both sides of the law. If cargo absolutely positively has to be there NOW, Bean’s your man for a price. Bean’s latest cargo is a 10-year-old girl who's worth 50 grand when delivered home, but what he doesn't know is that she's already been kidnapped, and he's about to be framed for the snatch. Meanwhile, the real kidnappers are making off with the $2,000,000 in ransom money."
