Reki

I was looked up to by so many in the community
The de facto leader of sorts for them
I was there to show them the way and to learn about the town
After so many hours of being in front of others
I had to retreat to my studio

With canvases, brushes, and paint
I had to express myself when I wasn’t around the rest
While I was seen as the big sibling around
I felt so insecure
Like I was constantly being stepped on
Or having a train racing through my direction

Was I truly ready for flight no matter how small my charcoal feathered wings were?
I hated to admit this, but I needed to be rescued

My friend Jeannette’s Character Study on Reki from Haibane Renmei

I haven’t cross-promoted many posts recently, but I want to post an article from my friend Jeannette Jonic. She’s an author who also blogs about various media such as movies and anime. I recently got her into Haibane Renmei which is one of my favorite anime series of all time, and she enjoyed it. Jeannette did an article covering the characterization of Reki (one of the main characters) and it was amazing. Reki was a character I found to be very relatable especially when I re-watched it a while ago.

I’m sure all my anime fan friends would appreciate this article that she wrote.
