For me Haibane Renmei is a tale about characters trying to find a meaning for their existence and for one of them, a reason to continue that existence when it seems that there is no meaning. It's probably one of the most subtle (and emotionally draining) fables about atonement ever commited to film, certainly in animation. I only wish it was twice as long, but it is one series that rewards you for repeated viewings.

The music is also worth noting, the soundtrack is wonderful and perfectly fits the world of Haibane Renmei. I recommend all three soundtracks if you can track them down.
