WOW
4 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

Noir is one of the finest animes there is. The animation is great, the plot is difficult, but good and it has lotsa, and i mean a lot of shooting. The character's are somewhat hollow at beginning, but just watch. Intresting plot i must say. Music plays the biggest part. It is beautiful. Classic music.

And thats funny cos i hate classic music, but it fits in Noir just perfectly. Nearly every episode has this great, powerful music and I LOVE IT! The shootings are not violent, altough there is much of it. It's very moderate, but still intense. And one thing to say, Noir is a bit feministic, nearly every man is evil and women are heroes. And something about the plot, Noir is about two female assasins. Yeah thats what im saying about the plot, cos its rather difficult to explain. But its a action-drama about these two assasins. Dont expect this to be pure action, even if i said it has lotsa shootings. Its not. Its rather slow, but still great. Its not an ordinary anime, its like a beautiful masterpiece.

If I must discribe Noir with one word, it would be beautiful. nothing more to say. Check it out.
