About Looking Up at the Half Moon DVD

Looking Up at the Half Moon contains episodes 1-6 of the anime directed by Yukihiro Matsushita.

Even though Yuuichi Ezaki is in the hospital recovering from an illness, he's constantly sneaking out. One day he's caught by the head nurse, who makes a deal with him: she'll overlook his future excursions if he's willing to befriend a new patient, Rika Akiba. Due to a serious heart condition, Rika has spent most of her life in the hospital, and doesn't really have any friends. As Yuuichi and Rika spend time together and learn more about each other, their relationship soon blossoms into romance...

Is it really worth the buy?


[Warning: This May Contain a Spoiler]
Indeed I am not a verified purchaser of this anime yet, but right off the bat I can say that this anime was a homerun. It did lack the true meaning of romance, but through out the story it kinda grew onto me. The characters and animation was a 8/10, not bad. Though my favorite thing about this entire anime was Rika; one of the main characters in the story. Her personality and her life threatening issue really touched my heart. In all, this anime is a Must-Have. Buy it before you regret it.

Cute Love Story

by -

Looking Up At The Half Moon is a 6 episode love story that tells the story of a young couple who meet during their hospital stays. The story is realistic and not over the top. You actually can see these characters develop feelings for each other even knowing that they may not be able to stay together. My only complaint is that you never get to really see the outcome played out in the final episode, but in a series of pictures during the ED track. This anime is sold as a two disc set that includes all 6 episodes, the OP/ED videos and promotional video. I had just recently watched this on CR and when I saw Right Stuf had it on sale I immediately added it to my cart. A definite must own for those who enjoy romance or drama anime!
