Animefringe: December 2001

Seasons Greetings! This month our focus turns towards in-depth looks at the anime series Noir and Saint Tail along with all the hype behind the latest system launches. If you're reading this, then undoubtedly you've grown bored with your new toys and want something interesting to do. Why not decorate your house for Christmas? You guessed it... there's a new ADAMVISION. The drool cups are availble in the souvenier shop.

Noir - A Pilgrimage to the Past

A pair of lovely, ruthless assassins at odds with an ambiguous and seemingly ubiquitous organization. What mysteries are locked within the name, Noir? A fast-paced and violent ride through the present offers some insights into the past and glimpses of the future. In a manner all it's own, Noir grabs on to your mind and just won't let go. With a star-studded cast of seiyuu and a spectacular soundtrack to boot, Noir is a beautiful story that is masterfully executed in the anime medium.

Even though her intentions are pure, she is still pursued by law enforcement, most notably the head detective's son, who is also her classmate at school! Can she still continue in her attempts to do good deeds with the long arm of the law grasping at her coattails at every turn?

The Big Launch

Remember how hard it was to get a Playstation 2 when it launched? They weren't prevalent until mid-January of the following year. At countless locations, Microsoft's new system, the Xbox, made gamers and non-gamers alike stop and look at what they had been missing. True, graphics aren't everything, but the games themselves are key. Thanks to Sega's support, Nintendo's first CD-based system is finally on the market and gaining a large following of people looking forward to the next installments of their favorite games.
