[[WMG:The Haibane's dreams reflect how they died]]
* As gruesome and dark as this one sounds, it might explain why they have the dreams they do, and goes on the theory that Reki committed suicide and thus this is why her cocoon dream shows her standing on a train track. Which means that Nemu was likely given euthanasia (put to sleep), Hikari might have suffered from a fatal accident involving electricity (she dreams of sparkling light), Kana drowned in a river (floating like a fish), Kuu might have been asphyxiated (thus why she dreams of air), Reki's is self-explanatory and Rakka may have fallen fatally from somewhere high above. The Young Feathers: Hana (exposure to a poisonous plant like deadly nightshade), Shorta (sickness from eating too many sweets?) Again, just speculation, but if Reki's dream showed how she died, wouldn't it make sense for the other Haibane's to do the same?

[[WMG:Alternatively, Rakka was Sheeta from Miyazaki's CastleInTheSky.]]
As well as Sheeta's apparent affinity for falling, the two are similar physically (especially at the end of CastleInTheSky, when Sheeta's hair is randomly shortened) and in personality. The crow in Rakka's dream and at the bottom of the well is actually Pazu. Furthermore, the glowing flecks that Rakka is harvesting inside the wall of Glie look like they could contain or be made of Volucite, a further implication that the stories' universes are connected.

* Reki's problems are created by her being from the lineage of the [[Literature/{{Dune}} Atreides]] family. The railroad she sees is the Golden Path of the [[Literature/GodEmperorOfDune God-Emperor]]. Rakka is also an Atreides.

[[WMG: The show is in continuity with the {{Dune}} series.]]The city of Glie is all that remains of a once civilized world. The series takes place centuries after the eradication of all life on Arrakis, and possibly on Arrakis itself.

[[WMG:The Haibane never died in the first place.]] They're people who, for one reason or another, retreated from society in the world and disappeared as a result. Main/{{Hikikomori}}, like the eventual fate of ''Main/SerialExperimentsLain'' and ''Anime/WelcomeToTheNHK'', which Yoshitoshi [=ABe=] provided the scenario and design for in the former case and the original cover artwork int he latter. Their cocoon dreams are metaphors for the behavior the Haibane was in before disappearing -- Rakka rejected the help of someone trying to bring her back into society hurting the person in the process, Reki had many people who would have helped her get back into society that she never paid attention to and was unwilling to ask for help, Nemu slept her life away. Their time in Old Home is designed to force them into society: they must work with people, don't remember the part of the past that caused them to leave society in the first place. Sin-bound Renmei are just those who don't go into society fully with the other Renmei or townsfolk.

* {{Jossed}}. ABe has stated that only the sin-bound Haibane have committed suicide.
** No. ABe has [[ShrugOfGod refused to answer many questions about the series]] because he wants viewers to come to their own conclusions. This is exactly the kind of thing he wouldn't say about it.

[[WMG:The Haibane Renmei were previously Haibane who didn't manage to reach their Day of Flight]]
* The people who are currently Haibane Renmei, were once Haibane, but didn't attain redemption in time, so when their day of flight came, they just lost their wings and halos and are now working to help other Haibane attain redemption, and not end up as them. When the old man is speaking to Rakka at one point, he says that "Haibane who do not get their day of flight in time lose their halos and wings, and live separate from both humans and Haibane, until they eventually die." as he is saying that, the mark on his hood and the fake wooden wings he wears are shown, implying that he, at the very least, was previously a Haibane who failed to achieve his Day of Flight. Also Haibane Renmei do live in a place far removed from both humans and haibane, and are separate from both.

** Nice theory but she was still pregnant in the eleventh episode and gave birth some time before the twelfth. Kuu's flight happened long before then and the next Haibane's Day of Flight was still yet to happen.
This list shows the last 10 events of 10. Show all.
