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. (Source: ANN)

Excellent anime


This is Noir, but with lots of weird supernatural stuff.


Really enjoyed this. Super interesting and twisty plot. Ending is a hit or miss, but the ride was worth it. One of Kajiura’s best OSTs.


Tried too hard to be cool, too many disconnected plot points leading to a flat finish with a bitter aftertaste.


Spends too much time on the emotional burden of war and not enough on being entertaining. Very boring for long stretches. Hard to invest


It’s like Noir and Phantom, but really bad.



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
