Episode Summary

EDIT
Two maidens loyal to the Soldats, tested through trial, and appointed by ancient ritual- this is the true nature of Noir. As Altena recounts the history of the Soldats, the Council itself plots to move against her, and her idea of recreating Noir. Meanwhile, Chloe eagerly awaits as Kirika faces one last trial, hoping that the two of them will indeed prove worthy to become the next incarnation of the true Noir.moreless

  • Noir starts taking on an even darker theme as we move towards the finale.

    10
    Kirika’s true identity has been revealed, and this episode details how Mireille will react to this revelation, and how Kirika will react to the truth. In the backwash of this revelation, Altena explains to Chloe how the Soldats began, so you can imagine that the beginning of this episode is slow moving. This isn’t too surprising, since a lot of the latest episodes have been more reflective and slow paced. However, Altena’s opposing faction is still out to kill – not test – the three girls, and so they mobilize the Knights of Paris to kill the assassins. This results in an epic, well-animated, and very exciting rooftop battle that is probably one of Noir’s final moments. It culminates with yet another stunning revelation, one that will now send Noir off into a new, and much darker direction for its final story arc.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Altena: It is in the nature of man to commit sin. And no matter how hard he struggles, no man can escape that fate. It is, therefore, our duty to soil our hands, for the sake of man, just as the sins of the Soldats of old were committed in atonement for the sins of man himself.

    • Altena: The two hands of the Soldats are two maidens. Two maidens who have no fear of being sullied. Tested by the most rigorous standards, and bound by the black thread of fate itself, to each other, and to their most sublime duty.

    • Mireille: When she claimed to be the true Noir, I felt as if she was a reflection of myself. But it seems that reflection wasn't of me, was it?

    • Altena: Though the ages come and go, the world of man does not change.

    • Altena: If love can kill, then surely hatred can save.

    • Council Member: The blood of the Soldats not only runs throughout the world- it is the world.

    • Altena: They knew then the true nature of Man. That the Earth was filled with evil and despair. Those who had survived swore to each other that they would seek revenge against this world, that they would help the weak and the persecuted, that they would realize justice on this Earth.
