Fulfilling my Madlax duties

Subject: Noir
I've discovered I'm the #1 search engine result for "Madlax 26" at the moment (in Yahoo and AltaVista, at least). So those of you making your way here looking for closure, click the title of this post. You won't be dissappointed.

(EDIT: If you have trouble with that link, try this alternative.)

Credit goes to onearmedscissor on the AnimeNation/AnimeSuki forums, who took Oogami Ichiro's SSA (EDIT: 'Suki cleaned house; now linked to a mirror instead) of guuchan's edit of Fon's original translation of the Chinese fansub I posted earlier.

The link to the sub will likely be pulled from the major forums, so make sure you save it and pass it around. And then, for karma's sake, buy the DVDs when they hit the shelves! And buy a copy for your friends!

To any particular executives of a certain Texas-based network programming and distribution company who happen to find this post, please note: this is an excellent show. I've done some "test-marketing" of my own with my other 30-something friends, and they like it a lot (same with Noir). Koichi Mashimo is on to something, and I think you'll get a lot of crossover acceptance of Madlax if you play your marketing right. If you look at my past posts, you'll see that you hooked me with your hi-def offering on INHD, which dragged me deeper into this whole sphere; one box-set at a time. I think you'll find a lucrative niche in people like me and my don't-usually-watch-anime friends. Think along the lines of HBO's "Sunday Prime Time" strategy...

I'm available if you need someone to help shape that strategy and scout out appropriate programming, BTW... ;)
