* LighterAndSofter: ''Haibane Renmei'' is definitely this compared Creator/YoshitoshiABe's other "serious" works, namely ''Anime/SerialExperimentsLain'' and ''Anime/{{Texhnolyze}}''. It has a fairly comprehensive plot (though there are mysteries less significant to the main plot that aren't revealed), minimal objectionable content (for example, little to no violence), and is only a mature show in the sense that it has mature thematic material that younger audiences would have trouble understanding or find boring. All in all, it is a very calm and gentle show with a fairly uplifting tone.

It's also why the Haibane are not allowed to own anything that isn't second hand. They are evanescent visitors to the town, so they wish to be as little of a burden as they can while they are there.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AbandonedArea: Places that are abandoned by the humans of Glie eventually become "Nests" where Haibane emerge and live. Old Home and Abandoned Factory are two such locations. The nature of these locations also appear to influence the Haibane that appear. Old Home was once a dormitory, so all the Haibane there are teenage school girls whereas Abandoned Factory has no such limitation.

* HolyHalo: Subverted. The Haibanes' halos accent their angelic appearance, but are actually artificial, created from materials gathered [[spoiler:in the interior of the wall around Glie]]. They also don't appear to have any purpose [[spoiler:except to indicate when a Haibane's Day of Flight is approaching, when they begin to fade and flicker]].
** They are also used as a symbolic bond between the Haibane, and some fans believe that there are hints to the effect that they somehow anchor the Haibane to their new home, whether psychologically or metaphysically.
* ItsAllJunk: Kuu, the smallest of the Haibane, gives a large winter coat to Rakka, the newest Haibane. Rakka appreciates the gift, but only fully realizes its significance when the others explain to her that Kuu had kept the coat, which was too big for her, in the hope that she would eventually grow into it. By passing it over to Rakka, Kuu accepts that she will never grow to be as big as the other members of her group. This is a major turning point in the series - [[spoiler: shortly afterwards, Kuu ascends in her "Day of Flight," which the Haibane can only achieve after dealing with their personal issues. In Kuu's case, this seems to have been disappointment in her status as a small, "unimportant" member of their society - which Rakka helps her overcome, by accepting Kuu's guidance and acknowledging the little Haibane as her senior/sempai]]. By giving the coat to Rakka, Kuu showed that she was content with who she was, and prepared to move on rather than chase the impossible.
