In the country of Gazth-Sonika, civil war rages. There, a mercenary called Madlax plies her trade, with almost supernatural skill. In the seemingly peaceful country of Nafrece, Margaret Burton lives a tranquil life. As separate as their lives may seem, the two are connected by ties of mystery, and by a holy book that is also sought by the shadowy organisation, Enfant. As Margaret and Madlax follow the path of their destiny, they come ever closer to uncovering the truth - with no guarantee that it is a truth they can bear to learn.

There’s also some absolutely ...

Mixed Feelings
Like most animes the ending (last episode) is terrible. The pacing of the show is not amazing, and frankly could have been done in 12 episodes.

Watch it once for the story which is actually quite good and never come back.

To meet the stupid minimum review length here is: the song that never ends it just goes on and on my friend some people started singing it not knowing what it was and then continued singing it forever just because this is the song that never ends it just goes on and on my friend some people started singing it not knowing what it was and ...

"I'm confused!"

If you are looking for a good thriller with a solid amount of mystery watch Noir, not this anime.

Once I got the idea, I realized, that if implemented properly this anime had the chance to bring me to tears, ...
