Charcoal Feathers

official series art by Yoshitoshi ABe

One of my favorite anime series is Haibane-Renmei. It was truly a Yoshitoshi ABe creation, since not only did he do the original character designs for it, but it’s also his own story.

Driving that story is Rakka, who suddenly finds herself in a world full of questions, and she has the bravery to ask those questions when it is largely considered taboo to do so. Her quests for knowledge and for herself are part of what makes her one of my all-time favorite anime characters.
