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.

Although Haibane has a more light hearted feel, both share a slow paced story telling and has strong dramatic elements executed beautifully.

Both also used symbolisms (which is more implicit in Haibane) that gave more depth to the presentation.

By glance these two, Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien and Haibane Reinmei, don't seem to have much to do with each other. The plot, the characters, the atmosphere, even the animation are different, yes I admit that. But, despite the atmosphere being different, there is a same kind of feel in both of these. Thay are both kinda slice of life series...even though in case of Haibane Reinmei it may not be of our kind of life. There is a feeling of reality and quietness behind everything, a feeling that these people relly do feel tired at mornings, go to toilet sometimes and feel helpless and alone also in not-dramatic way time to time.

Also slow, gentle, and with beautiful characters (not as beautiful as in HR, though.) Both will have you feeling wonderful at the end.

The season has turned to spring, and it's graduation time for the Rosas of the yamayurikai (the student council).

In addition, the en boutons, who are next to become full-fledged Rosas, now have to shoulder the full responsibility of the student council. With the new first year students lined up to attend and the soon-to-be-alumni on their way out the door, this truly is a season of change...

Both Haibane Renmei and Maria-sama ga Miteru deal with a group of young characters living and supporting eachother.  Both stories are rather slow-paced, but definitely have great character development.  Maria-sama ga Miteru Haru deals with the complexities of the characters' emotions, which is also a running theme in Haibane Renmei.  In general, they are both great slice-of-life anime!
