Une Fille Qui A des Alies Grises (A Girl Who Has Grey Wings)

Haibane Renmei is the story of a group of girls living in an abandoned place called Old Home. They're not humans. They are born from cocoons, grow wings shortly after they break through, and recieve halos. Even though they have wings and halos, they're not angels either. But really, no one knows who they are. They call themselves "haibane" because they have grey wings. Because of who they are, they can't leave the town. They awaken with no memories of who they were or where they came from.

For their lives, they live in that one city named Guri which is surrounded by a wall. The haibane and humans live there together. From time-to-time, these mysterious people called Tooga visit. They are the only ones who can pass freely.

This is the newest anime with character designs from yoshitoshi ABe. His previous works include serial experiments lain and NieA_7. Haibane is his lastest series which began airing on October 9, 2002 and will run for 13 episodes.
