FUNimation Entertainment Signs Distribution Agreement with Cybergraphix Animation

Flower Mound, TX – December 7, 2009 – FUNimation Entertainment has signed a distribution agreement with Cybergraphix Animation, the California-based animation and entertainment group, to release the animated film “Guardians of Luna.”

The action anime is currently in development with writer Michael Reaves (Batman: The Animated Series, Gargoyles, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) as story editor and character designer Cindy H. Yamauchi (Naruto: The Movie, Black Lagoon, Akira).

“We have always sought to build strong partnerships for our productions,” said Avi Melman, CEO at Cybergraphix and Executive Producer of the series. “Having FUNimation as a partner will help build a strong distribution network and ultimately, increased exposure for Guardians of Luna.”

Animation of the film will be done by APPP Co. Ltd. (Robot Carnival, Fist of the North Star: Toki-den) and is expected to begin in 2010.

A manga series is also in development, and a website has been launched. The website,, currently features a mailing list to keep fans updated, and will soon feature behind-the-scenes content and exclusive media and information from the cast and crew.
