Not a single scrap of violence anywhere. Sounds boring, but it’s not. Haibane-Renmei derives its world through original takes on a mix of religious theologies and comes up with a winner. You’ll discover some darker undertones as you get to know why the Haibane are there. The dark stuff never become a focal point of the story, but rather how the Haibane move forward.

Be warned, this is one of those stories that leaves a lot of interpretation up to the viewer.

RATING
POSITIVES
Excellent story telling and imagination.
NEGATIVES
English dub kills the ending.
NOT ON US TV BECAUSE
Religious tones bound to get some nut’s panties in a bunch.
