Crimson Star's Looking Up at the Half Moon DVD Now Available for Pre-order at RACS!

We've signed a distribution deal with new Anime producer Crimson Star for their first localized Anime DVD release, Looking Up at the Half Moon (Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora ):

Looking Up at the Half Moon Complete Collection DVD 

This sweet 6 episode romance ONA from 2006 is scheduled to street on Sept 27th.

Crimson Star Media formed in May by a group of anime fans and fansubbers (I know, the irony does not escape me). The company is currently holding open auditions for potential English dub background characters via its website. If 275 pre-orders are purchased by August 1 the company said it will add an English dub with cast commentary and interviews.

Synopsis: Love can be found in the strangest places... Yuuichi Ezaki was recently diagnosed with Hepatitis A and admitted to the hospital to recover. One day after sneaking out, he returns to the hospital only to be confronted by the head nurse, Akiko. Later that same day while on the rooftop, Akiko makes a deal with Yuuichi. She will overlook his sneaking out of the hospital in the future if he will befriend a new patient at the hospital. The girl, Rika Akiba, has just recently been moved into the hospital to get the proper care for her serious heart condition. What ensues is a friendship that grows into something more as Yuuichi and Rika begin to bond looking up at the half-moon.

Based on the light novel "Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora" by Tsumugu Hashimoto, this six episode series is directed by Yukihiro Matsushita (Maria Watches Over Us), and features character designs by Mitsuru Ohara (Peach Girl), music by Shinkichi Mitsumune (FLCL, Rozen Maiden) and animation by Group TAC (Black Blood Brothers, Gilgamesh).
