I wanted to post in a forum about Noir, but when I searched, there was no forum about this anime! granted, it wasnt my FAVOURITE anime, but I think it deffinetly deserves a forum!

SO! what did u think about this anime?

my favourite part, was 1) the soundtrack & 2) how kick ass and clever they where

Mireille Bouquet is a professional assassin, and a very good one at that. But when she follows up an e-mail from a young Japanese girl named Yumura Kirika, inviting her to take "a pilgrimage to the past", her life becomes even more dangerous than it already is. Now, with a haunting melody invoking the memory of an event long past, Mireille and Kirika decide to work together to find the truth about a thousand year old organization that has controlled both of their lives since before they were born. And the only clue in their search, the only thing Kirika remembers about herself, becomes their working codename: a name designating an ancient fate, of two maidens who reign over death--Noir.

26 episodes... I like 26 episode animes ^-^ Anyways, this anime sounds interesting, I've heard of it before but never had the intention of watching it, but, after reading the summary, yup, I want to watch it. This anime = GIRL POWER!!

Noir has to be one of the most unique assasin animes out there. The director did not have the blood animated so all you see are people falling down or a pinkish sheen on items used to stab people.

Also Kajiura Yuki did the sound track and she is probably the most amazing artist out there.

There is little talking but the series conveys this heavy message. Quite a good anime.

If you like Noir see it's trilogy Madlax and El Cazador de la Bruja. They are not related to each other but they are very common. Two girls, some memory loss, kick buttocks fight scences, ya noe.

it's true, theres a heavy message, i found this series pretty moving. and once again, the soundtrack was innncredibllleee.

"Noir has to be one of the most unique assasin animes out there. The director did not have the blood animated so all you see are people falling down or a pinkish sheen on items used to stab people."

i totaly agree. the method they used was subtle,yet dramatic, but it got the point across

woah i loved Noir i only have the first 3 dvds but its brilliant the music is great too its like a sort of mix between tecno and opera or something. I read that the channel it was shown on didnt allow blood to be shown which is strange.. but i didnt notice it at all while watching the anime because the fights were so good. But overall this is one of my favourite animes.
