Haibane Renmei: Rakka

Rakka is the newest addition to Old Home and the main character of Haibane Renmei. The series largely focuses on Rakka's adjustment to the strange new world of Glie. Although happy to have several new friends, Rakka cannot help but wonder who she was before she became a Haibane and if her family is somewhere in this world. She feels a connection with the birds of Glie, especially since her dream involved falling with only a crow as company. She is very amiable and quickly becomes attached to her new family. All of this was in Episode 9.


  1. This was an odd anime, really dont like animes where nothing is explained yet we are supposed to deal with it. Did like the tomboy who worked on the clock

    1. What's wrong with figuring things out on your own?

    2. Nothing about that as long as they at some point do confirm or deny what you figured out. This show never does that

    3. You rather want some explanation of shows like why are these characters fighting each other?

  2. She looks like an angel. Great post GumballW. :-)

    1. Born from a cocoon in the village of Old Home, a young Haibane—a being with a halo and small gray wings—awakens to a world she does not understand without memories of her past. Named Rakka for the dream of falling she had while inside the cocoon, she soon becomes accustomed to life in the strange town. However, there are strict rules for the Haibane, such as being forbidden to leave the village or go near the walls surrounding it. These, along with mysterious disappearances of their kind on their "Day of Flight," begin to unsettle Rakka and the others since they know almost nothing about their own kind.

      Haibane Renmei tells not only Rakka's story but also of those around her, as they live their lives with no memories of the past while trying to break free from their former pain and ultimately find salvation.

    2. I see, this seems a bit interested to have character arcs as opposed to one overall plot.
