Meet the cast of Haibane Renmei:
Hikari (row 1, left):
"It sucks that us Haibane aren’t allowed to go above Grade C on the Zettai Ryouiki scale."
She’s the sweet one, along with Rakka. Works at a bakery. Has a secret mischevious side.
Kana (row 1, right):
"I will fix this with Mao Zedong Thought."
Brash tomboy who’s really not as much of a jerk as she appears. Chases crows. Can repair all kinds of clocks.
Kuu (row 2, left):
"So guess what I just found out about old Washi. Hint, it starts with ‘D’ and ends with ‘epends’."
The kid. Energetic. Likes to imitate others. Worked as a waitress. Often mistaken for a boy.
Nemu (row 2, right):
"I could go for some potato chips right now…and peanut butter…soda…pizza…chocolate chips…and water, man, lotsa water."
Reki’s oldest friend. Name means ‘sleep’ which is apt as she’s prone to it. A gentle soul. Librarian. Reads to kids.
Rakka (row 3, left):
"Oh I just KNOW Mister Scrooge will give us a holiday bonus this year!"
The other protagonist of Haibane Renmei. Dreamed of falling. A good kid. Rather confused by her new circumstances. Has bad hair days.
Hyouko (row 3, right):
"All I wanted was a pepsi. And she wouldn’t give it to me. Just one pepsi."
Reki’s ex. Probably a bit of a self hating Haibane, as he likes to go out disguised. Brash but not as dumb as he comes off.
Reki (row 4, left):
"I liked their old albums better."
Protagonist #2. She smokes. She paints. She’s ‘upposed ta stop but she cain’t. Something of a walking Plot Tumor through no fault of her own. Has…problems.
Washi (Row 4, right):
"Let me offer you a riddle, young feather: What’s brown and sticky?"
The head of the Haibane Renmei. Implied to be a Haibane who failed their test. Dresses like a LARPing monk with a laser cannon on his face.
