Full Moon o Sagashite (満月（フルムーン）をさがして, literally “Searching for the Full Moon”) is a Japanese shōjo manga by Arina Tanemura. According to the furigana, the kanji 満月 in the title are read furu mūn (“full moon”) and not mangetsu or mitsuki, the Japanese words for the full moon. The series was adapted as an anime television series produced by Nihon Ad Systems, which ended before the manga was completed, plus an OVA distributed with an issue of Ribon.
12-year-old Mitsuki Kouyama’s dream to become a professional singer is shattered when she’s diagnosed with throat cancer. If a tumor isn’t horrific enough, how about being met by two angels of death shortly after?
Meroko Yui and Takuto Kira, of the shinigami duo “Negi Ramen,” inform Mitsuki that she has just one year left to live. Instead of getting discouraged, however, Mitsuki decides to make the most of her last year, and pursues her singing dream with a passion. Aided by Meroko and Takuto, Mitsuki finds success and failure, love and loss, and deals with her fate and other difficult subjects the best she can. Full Moon wo Sagashite is the story of a little girl who refuses to let something as insignificant as fate slow her down. This is a tale of growing up, falling in love, awareness of life and death, and desire to move forward.
