Instead of a Christmas tree, Russians erect a New Year one. Presents are under it all the same. Just in time for the gift season, an R5 company Reanimedia.ru published a box set of Haibane Renmei. Looks like a quality release, I'm thinking to get it, if I can understand the bizarre Internet payment methods they use. For the curious, there's an unboxing post at valkorn.LJ with pictures. Check out the booklet in particular.
