I put up the detailed summary of episode 4, again no screenshots yet. I probably won't get anything more up until this weekend. I'll be adding scans from the third DVD and the image album if my order shows up.

I put up the detailed summary of episode 2 and 3, but no screenshots yet. I'll either be working on the episode 4, etc summaries or on the series review next, whichever strikes my fancy.

I decided to go ahead with the first-pass analysis at episode 1. It really isn't that detailed yet, but it is a sampling of what I'm planning to do with the episode suammry section. I expect to expand up on it and the basic symbolism page quite a bit after I get the basics taken care of.

I got the episode 1 detailed summary up, along with
the screenshots for it. I'm noticing I'm having a definite tendency
to over do the screenshots. Later episodes will focus them on the
points I'm highlighting in the analysis section, but I'll still try
to keep it from getting completely out of hand.

Added some links to reviews. Not many out yet, of course.

Finished up the DVD pages. That does it for the merchandise until AMO Tokyo ships my next order or I get to a scanner (whichever comes first). Up next will be the episode 1 detailed summary.

Some of the merchandise pages are updated. Pretty much everything except the DVDs are done. Unfortunately I don't have a scanner at present, so the images I'm able to offer are currently limited. I should have access to one soon, however, at which point I'll update the section.

Okay, some more updates. I've added a few images around
the site, which is what took so long. I was trying to get some decent
image caps from the DVDs and it took me far longer than I had expected.
Most of the programs I tried insisted on changing it from a 16:9 to
a 4:3 aspect ratio for some unknown reason, which rather disturbed
the effect of the art.

I've done a little updating and added a basic page about
the symbolism in use during the series. I'll be going into a lot more
depth on those when I get a chance and as I go through the episodes.

Welcome to my Haibane Renmei fan page. Things are going to be a little sparse for a while, but I'll keep updating until it's done. Right now it's mostly the merchandise and links that have anything. I'm working on getting the basics up, and then going into more detail on everything. Next will probably be basic character information and spoilerific episode summaries. Then I'll go into more detail on everything.
There are going to be a fair amount of spoilers on the page, so if you haven't seen the show you probably shouldn't dig around too much. A large part of the reason I'm starting this page is to cover (and hopefully discuss) the symbolism used in the show. I'm hoping for input from others to add, since I'm definitely not an expert on Eastern religions, so I'll probably be getting some things wrong.
