Petition for Haibane Renmei re-release

Haibane Renmei is one of my all-time favorite anime series. It’s about a group of angelic beings called Haibane who live in a town called Glee, which is closed off from the rest of the world. It is a very moving piece about forgiveness and redemption and I think every anime fan should watch it. However, it was originally carried by Geneon, and that company no longer exists.  FUNimation has picked it up, along with several other Geneon titles like Trigun and Samurai Champloo, which they have re-released. But why won’t they release Haibane Renmei? Because it doesn’t seem like it would be profitable. This from a company that’s made so much money off  Full Metal Alchemist and Dragonball.  I feel this is not a good reason. I really think the money that they might lose from Haibane Renmei could be covered by the other titles that they carry.  So, I’m linking to a petition that I want my readers to read over. Perhaps with enough signatures, FUNimation will change their minds.

Here’s the link
