Madlax Episode 6


"Will - Leave"

Madlax is so much like Noir it makes my head hurt. It also makes me want to fall asleep, which is one of the more unfortunate parts of its imitation.

The last episode was about Madlax, so this one's about Margaret. It follows the Madlax formula, with a good amount of flashbacks, mysterious, portentous imagery, and a whole lot of stuff not happening. There's an amusing scene where Margaret's maid, Elinor, gets involved in a fight with one of Margaret's classmates.

Other than that, there's little to no plot or character advancement, and I'm really struggling to maintain interest in this show until, inevitably, the answers start to come out.
