Noir - question about secret messages

Just got the third volume, UK release, and there was a pair of red-tinted goggles inside.
Took a while to figure out that these were to view a secret message printed in a grainy red box on the insert for each volume - How cool is that!!!!!!
My problem is that I cannot read the second one - printing error? I don't know, the others are pretty hard to read anyway, requiring a strong light source.

Could some kind person please tell me what the second mesage says?

The ones that I have are :

Vol 1 :

Also a little drawing of Kirika's head.
Vol 3 :

BTW, thoroughly enjoying the series.
BTW BTW hadn't bought anime for years, am now out GBP200 or so as a direct result of downloading fansubs and am considering buying a region 1 player so I can watch imports (I managed to buy what must be about the only non hackable player on the UK market GRRRR!). Thanks, fan-subbing community

Bugger, sorry

Ahem, sorry, don't bother, found it.
After I posted I tried googling on "humble snack tell tale noir" and found it straight off.
Still, new levels of coolness - these are codes to activate easter eggs on the DVDs! Each phrase refers to a point in an episode and instructions on what to do with the remote.
Going to try them out now.
Let me know if anyone wants me to post the results.

The Digital Omake section of AnimeOnDVD.com should have most, if not all, of the hidden omake listed.

Noir: Shades Of Darkness (R1) without english subtitles?

I decided to go for the R1 edition of Noir: Shades of Darkness - Special Edition from http://www.dvdpacific.com/item.asp?ID=45180 as I was getting too impatient for Play.com to restock the R2 edition. The fact that I could get the special edition for almost the same price helped a bit aswell

But then to my horror I noticed that according to the product details it comes without english subtitles? All the other volumes comes with english subtitles according to DVDPacific, as well as all of the R2 edition according to Play. Is the first volume of Noir R1 edition delivered only with japaneese and english language and no subtitles?

I just finished watching it for maybe the 4th time.

It's one of my favorites. I can watch the whole thing in one sitting. The music is great, the action is great, and it has a great story. It's not just mindless action.

I love how they show the action (or don't show it). No blood, for example. It actually makes it more thrilling to watch.

Like when a guy gets a knife to the face. You don't see the knife hit him nor do they show it sticking into his skull afterwords. You just see him fall down and you see his sunglasses, split into two, falling to the ground. That's cool.

Only thing that bugs me about the show is :

I really liked Noir, except for one thing: The story moved horribly slow. It was almost unbearable. And, the horrible bootleg subs I watched didn't help. ^^;; I think, had it been a 12 or 13 episode series, it would have been perfect.
