Hued in a melancholic and languid atmosphere. Drips with beauty in its symbolism and mystery. Enchanting musical score. Bittersweet ending.
To die, to sleep –
To sleep, perchance to dream – ay, there’s the rub,
For in this sleep of death what dreams may come…
Haibane Renmei is soft, peaceful, and beautifully tragic. The world that is built is contemplative and gorgeous. It is an absolute classic.
A gentle and calming slice of life story with revelations that raise thought provoking questions.
Hauntingly peaceful setting for a story about curiosity and unknown things. Do you ask questions or just live? Are you alive?
I don’t know what this show means, but I will be happy thinking about it for the rest of my life.
There is more depth here than one my see at first glance. dive into deeper waters and discover a world of questions
