posted on 2011-07-10 21:40 EDT
This past week, the Hulu service began streaming episode 29 of Full Moon o Sagashite — the first episode of the series that was not released on DVD in the United States. Starting in 2006, Viz Media put 28 episodes of the series on DVD, but confirmed at New York Comic Con 2008 that it was discontinuing the DVD release. (Viz also confirmed at the same event that it was discontinuing the DVD releases of Hikari no Go and Prince of Tennis.) The entire Full Moon o Sagashite anime series ran in Japan for 52 episodes.
Based on the manga by Arina Tanemura, Full Moon o Sagashite follows a young girl, Kouyama Mitsuki, who is diagnosed with a malignant tumor of the throat. Mitsuki has promised the boy she loves, Eichi, that she will one day become a singer, but her illness has made singing impossible. Two angels of death, Takuto and Meroko, appear to Mitsuki and inform her that she only had one year left to live. With some divine intervention, Mitsuki begins her quest to become a professional singer so she can be reunited with Eichi before time runs out.
