I'm quite surprised that this thread got bumped up. I'm actually a huge fan of Noir too since it was probably one of my first Assassin/Gun type anime. My favorite scene has to be in the casino where they turn off all the lights. That gun fight was just so interesting with the popcorn

Hey, that used to be my line!

When the bluray finally comes out, I can quadruple-dip and buy it all over again. Hooray!

I've had my eye on this series for a while now

I'm always drawn to series that have really strong main female leads such as this

This anime definatly wasn't one of the best and there is a few reasons for that.

1. No strategy by the main characters, just forward shooting and the bullets always misses them, they never get hit even though they don't dodge and they always hit.

2. They don't possess any particular skills, I don't know why they are called top.1 Assasins as they get the chance to get killed countless times in the episodes but their enemes never fire when they get them. o.O

3. The main character Kirika sucked. An immature emotionless uninteresting doll.

4. For some reason the ending sucked as well, why do they still live after killing countless people without regret?

The thing that needs to be borne in mind is that Noir plays to different aesthetics than many shows do, and that the realism of the combat is the furthest thing from the creators' goals. In fact, it is purposefully stylized as a way for framing the character actions apart. This is obviously not to everyone's tastes, but there really is a method to the madness.

That isn't true at all. While it's legitimate to not like her character and to find her uninteresting, it's a different matter altogether to claim that she's emotionless. Instead, Kirika is very emotionally restrained (and perhaps emotionally scarred), and part of the purpose of the show is to portray her growth from being emotional from everyone, to her growing attachment to Chloe and especially Mireille.

In my opinion, Noir is one of those series that's hard to classify as unequivocally good or bad. This is because some of the series' faults can actually make watching it more enjoyable. Noir is a show that takes itself utterly seriously, but if you stop and think about it, a lot of what happens is actually fairly ridiculous. So in a way, when the show works, it works, and when it -doesn't- work, it still works, just... in an unintentionally funny kind of way.

Case in point:
Spoiler:


Another aspect that's sort of like this with the series is that very little of what the Big Bads actually -want- is explained. We get to know what they want from the main characters, but not what their overall plan is. Perhaps it's deliberate (like the bloodless thing? I've heard both that it was intentional and that it was mandated by executive meddling). But it does bring down much hope of really sympathizing with Altena instead of viewing her as another crazy anime character with a chip on her shoulder from X traumatic event.

Fleri does raise another point--this show is delightfully amoral. In their defense, the Noir girls don't kill that many genuinely good people, but it does say something that
Spoiler:
But in any event, that last shot of Kirika and Mireille was a -great- moment. And, like most Bee Train anime, you're happier, and things make more sense, if you stop a shot/sequence or so before it actually ends (see .Hack//SIGN). I just wish they hadn't been playing Canta Per Me for the billionth time during that scene. Good song, but that end deserved something that hadn't been as done to death.

That would be great.

But the chances are astronomic low, that this will ever happen.

The DVD Box looks pretty interesting, though.
