ok, having gone through my freshman year at Arizona and watching the new shiz over at TASS, i must say Noir stands out as one of my favorites that i have seen out of the new stuff (other recommendations: X, hellsing, vandread, love hina). i was looking foward for the first episode to this series because the name sounded cool at first. after watching the opening theme, listening to the music throughout the first episode, and seeing how the plot was unfolding, i was blown away. this touches anime in a way that i have never seen before. i would definately say this series rivals cowboy bebop and trigun combined! if you're looking for gun fights, girls, lots of killing, and one of the most electrifying soundtracks, see this, period
