Film genre characteristic of the years between with 20's and late 40's. Dark, gritty crime fiction: usually a heist, murder, or other such crime. We're talking Tommy Guns, Private Detectives, and women you could still call broads. Classic examples include The Maltese Falcon and Chinatown: modern examples include The Usual Suspects. Heavily influenced the Cyberpunk sub-genre.
I watch too much Noir. Situations like this have me asking, "What would Humphrey Bogart do?"

Noir. was founded in January 17th, 2008 by CEO Alekseyev Karrde following a split from his previous mercenary corporation (who had decided to go outlaw). Having had a taste of the mercenary life Alekseyev set forth to find a corporation which offered small gang warfare and, in the mercenary spirit, paid it's pilots for their performance. Combining his previous experience of running corporations, and his experiences as a mercenary pilot, Alekseyev founded Noir. - becoming one of (if not the only) corporation with a pilot orientated pay structure recruiting at that time.

As a one man corporation, Noir. performed well on it's first few contracts. Recruitment was initially slow due to the newness of the corporation and the competition from other start up mercenaries. However, contracts were aggressively pursued, leading to Noir. receiving a high profile contract against Exa Nation. This campaign saw Noir. put up comparable (or even better) fleets compared to the famed R.E.P.O mercenary corporation (who had also declared war upon Exa Nation later that same week). Since then, Noir. has taken on a gruelling contract schedule and shown extreme tenacity and valued competence, leaving a long string of happy employers behind.

An awesome anime about 2 female assassins.One of them being a girl whos alias is Kirika Yumura, who has amnesia and cant discover why she is so good at killing and feels no emotion when doing it.The other is Mirielle Boquet.She recieved an email from Kirika which said "Take a pilgrimage to the past with me." So she decides to find Kirika and help rediscover her past.But in doing so,Mirelle will kill Kirika once they do.The series is really great (especially in the later eps when Chloe appears.)They soon discover who the true Noir is.Noir being the codename for the ultimate assassin.The series is famous for its haunting visuals and GREAT soundtrack
Noir is my favorie anime.
