Haibane Renmei (灰羽連盟), also released in certain countries under the title Ailes Grises (French for grey wings) is a 13-episode anime series by Yoshitoshi ABe. In a wider scope, it also refers to a set of dōjinshi created by him, which was later adapted into the series. The series was directed by Tomokazu Tokoro. Animation was made by Studio RADIX. The music was composed by Kō Ōtani. Producer Yasuyuki Ueda also played a great role in the production.


The Dōjinshi

  • The Haibane of Old Home ch. 1

The first volume of the dōjinshi. Covers the first half of the anime's first episode.

  • The Haibane of Old Home ch. 2

The second volume. Covers the second half of the first episode.

  • Haibane Lifestyle Diary

Released shortly before the series' airing, this one contains short comical strips of the characters as well as some of the concept art for the series.

  • The Haibane of Old Home - Extra

Released when the series was already airing, this chapter delves into Reki's childhood and, as such, is quite spoiler heavy.
