Things I learned from watching Noir:
• If you meet a quiet, angsty Japanese school-girl who has amnesia, then she is mostly likely a skilled assassin
• Japanese student ID card is a lethal weapon
• Dagger is faster than bullet
• Popcorns are better than infrared goggles
• The best cure for amnesia is to shoot a bullet right past your ear
• If your uncle suddenly pays you a visit after many years, it's probably a good idea to gun him down
• Q: a deadly assassin just found out you killed her parents ten years ago, and she's pissed, what should you do?
A: write her a love letter... of course
• The Stonehenge is located in the border between Spain and France
• Toy car is mightier than the gun
• Chidren process information differently from adults. For example, when a 5-year-old girl witnesses another 5-year-old girl gunning down a whole family in cold blood, instead of being scarred for life, she will instantly fall madly in love with the loli assassin.
• To save your partner from being stabbed to death, it's much better to shoot the dagger than the assailant
• All church bell towers have a bungee cord hanging from the top -- for precisely the reason that if you ever got chased up the stairs by a mafia hitman, you can jump to safety -- and shoot him down in mid-flight as a bonus
• To operate stealthily in the crowded streets of Paris, be sure to wear a lime-green cloak everywhere and you'll blend right in
• It's customary to wave hello to a roomful of security guards before you shoot them dead
• Real assassins aren't afraid to stand still in front of the opponent and let him use up his ammo first
• Real assassins aren't embarrassed about carrying their gun in a dainty little purse
So my fellow Noir fans, have YOU learned anything from watching Noir?
I learned that something can be awesome for reasons that are very hard to explain.
