Haibane Renmei is a series TV that deserves attention considering that it is penetrated in thematic a little unusual and out of those that go for the most greater.
The staff has intelligently thought that the souls it owed, to inspire liking to the first impact, resulted first of all, gotten through the creation of a fascinating background, detailed and taken care of. Beautiful therefore the backdrops, very interesting the characters that thanks to the beautiful character design and to the gimmick of the aureole and the wings they arouse from immediately curiosity in the spectator.
The animations are well done. You can be said that it is not a great effort, sees the absence of complicated scenes, but it seems me that has had the attention that they deserved him however.
Few the CG, to me is seemed appropriate however, used only where it could serve and justly taken care of in the surrender.

A vote in anymore the souls also deserves him/it for the sonorous column, perfectly purrs with the history and the animation, from a hand to transport the spectator between the lawns and the roads of Glie. Very beautiful it initials her/it of opening despite is simply musical (even if also in that he distinguishes enough) while it is initialing her/it of closing (blue flow) it is really splendid. Besides the CD of the OST (Hanenone) alone it deserves more than a listening. I immediately recommend her to everybody the passionates.

They are enough therefore brief sequences to arouse the desire to see at least an episode and so much of it enough to be captured by the characters and by the questions that from immediately Haibane Renmei it is able to inspire. But the answers are given with the dropper, while a lot of attention is set on the psychological characterization of the protagonists, that episode later purchases more and more thickness. They are shown while they are interacting with the town that entertains them and while they are developing their job. Meanwhile the new-born protagonist, at first frightened and disorientated, she takes confidence with this new reality.
Although is a pleasure to know more and more details on the characters and on the small world that the authors have succeeded in creating, a further incentive is had to continue in the vision in how much it always seems that he is next to a turn that can make indeed to take off the events.

....... but nothing, the series continues with the same rhythm, without particular accelerations, but continuous however to be pleasant up to the end.

The souls it is addressed to a more demanding public and selected, excluding of fact those people who love more happy-go-lucky products and mostly directed toward the action.
Warmly recommended in short.
Only prudence: put you in the disposition of mind to devote him some time. It's an anime that invites to the reflection.

    Great review. Haibane Renmei is a great anime indeed, and you described it well. The only complaint I have is that I think the music rating should be higher. It gives so much atmosphere to the anime, and the ending theme is simply brilliant.
