Whilst teaching today I had a moment to myself and for some reason this classic anime came into my head. Haibane Renmei, for the uninitiated, is a 13 episode anime about Rakka, a newly hatched Haibane (Angel-like beings) and other characters in the city of Glie, a walled town. There is a single gate through which only a mysterious group known as the Toga, are allowed to enter or exit. The series is about life, death, mystery and redemption and struck a chord with me when I saw it years ago. I think this AMV (Animated Music Video) perfectly captures the mood of the series. Enjoy!
