Rakka (落下)Rakka is the newest addition to Old Home and the main character of Haibane Renmei. The series largely focuses on Rakka's adjustment to the strange new world of Glie. Although happy to have several new friends, Rakka cannot help but wonder who she was before she became a Haibane and if her family is somewhere in this world. She feels a connection with the birds of Glie, especially since her dream involved falling with only a crow as company. She is very amiable and quickly becomes attached to her new family.
On the surface, Haibane Renmei seems to be alluding to religion… but there is so much more to it than that. The beautiful anime is rich in symbolism, some of which we explore here.
