The official English translation of "Haibane Renmei" is "Charcoal Feather Federation," which has never made much sense to me. All the charcoal I've ever seen was pure black, but a haibane's wings are typically light grey. It turns out that the Japanese make a sort of white charcoal, which does have a pale grey surface.
