Noir: An Anime Classic - Girls With Guns On BluRay!


NOIR: COMPLETE SERIES - CLASSIC

“Noir” is the code name of an unlikely pair of female assassins: Mireille Bouquet and Kirika Yumara. The latter is a young Japanese girl suffering from amnesia who got in contact with Mireille to find out more about their mysterious past. During their search, the two are repeatedly ambushed by a dangerous organization called “Les Soldates”, that seems to be intertwined with the heroins' fate and an ancient prophecy of two maidens who will reign over death.

This remastered Bluray four-disc set is part of Funimation's re-releases in their Anime Classics line. It includes all 26 episodes of this milestone of the 'girls with guns' genre and delivers in very stylistic fight choreography and elaborate shootouts as well as mystery, action, and drama.

Sadly, a planned live-action adaption from television network Starz is on hold since 2012; the anime is a good indicator of what would have been...

And if you like "Noir" and its 'girls with guns' genre, you might also be interested in: Madlax, El Cazador de la Bruja, Gunslinger Girl or Ergo Proxy!
