Synopsis:

A young woman quietly falls to the earth, escorted by a solitary crow. This sort of dream, as many other before have dreamed, comes just before being reborn as a Haibane, a charcoal-winged angel. On the outskirts of the walled-in city lies Old Home, a haven for Haibane to study, live, and learn, while waiting for their chance to ascend to the heavens and escape the confines of their new world. Rakka is the newest inhabitant of Old Home who wants nothing more than to remember her past and discover the secrets of her kind. Together with Reki, Kuu and plenty of other new friends, Rakka will laugh, explore, and search for the meaning of their existence in the process.

Kajiwara Sora is a shy girl who loves to draw. She's a member of the art club at school, even though one of the other members scares her sometimes.

There are things she can draw, and things she can't draw, and with the help of her friends in the art club, she's going to experience them all to the fullest.

Both series talk us about the beauty of the daily routine. Moreover most of the characters are pretty similar, like the whole atmosphere of the anime.

Both sola and Haibane Renmei are based on powerful stories that begin as mysteries to the viewer, only to get developed and revealed towards the end. Though these two anime are very different in settings and themes, they share a serenity in the delivery of the plot. Though both are initially slow, they will keep you intrigued and guessing til their final episodes.

Haibane Renmei is a slow-paced, but very dense allegorical slice of life story about sin, guilt and forgiveness; The Third a clichee-ridden story about a girl with a sword in the desert. Nevertheless both share a poetic atmosphere and deal with hard-to-answer, existentialist questions. If you enjoyed that aspect of either one and don't mind the genre difference, the other one is certainly worth a look.

This Ugly Yet Beautiful World

This Ugly Yet Beautiful World

One day a light descends from the sky and splits into the ideal girls of Takeru and Ryou. That is where this gentle and vaguely romantic story about our ugly and beautiful world begins. Soon enough the story plummets into the secrets of global extinction and the meaning of life. Everything in this world that is beautiful has something ugly in it, and that ugliness is part of the secret of its beauty. Even for romance this is true...

These animes are similar because they both take a look at the beatiful aspects of life, as well as the darker ones. As well, both animes leave you with a sort of bitter-sweet feeling.
