Anime Spotlight: Haibane Renmei

Haibane Renmei is a fairly obscure anime that I stumbled upon by happy chance. Despite the fact that I rarely watch anime these days, I was immediately intrigued by its unique premise.

She recently created a spin-off channel, a sampling of which can be heard below.
