I think that if ever an anime could be characterized as profound, Haibane Renmei would certainly be in that category. How have you lived your life? What would you say and do if called to account? Has the way that you've lived been truly your responsibility alone? Is there redemption? These and other questions all come to mind when watching this lovely and elegiac anime from the mind and pen of Yoshitoshi ABe.
I have heard that most artwork from this series was destroyed; if true, that explains why I've not seen any for sale. So when this nice color setting came up, I was happy to buy it, just to have something from this great show!
