Ya know...

Subject: Noir
...it would be a whole heck of a lot easier to stick to my plan of not rewatching Noir or Madlax for a while if...

I would just stop listening to the OSTs!

I suppose I can be forgiven for Madlax OST 2 (on my Denon 3910 right now!) et al because my order from CD-Japan showed up recently and I haven't had a chance to hear them in all their uncompressed glory yet.

And I suppose it's only natural that, because the R2 Madlax DVD #1 showed up in the same package, I had to test that out too. (verdict: OMFG that was gorgeous on my player!) And of course, because I tested those, it was only natural that I felt that I needed to seen that Ayu version of the finale. And of course, to set up properly for the finale, it was only natural to go back a few episodes. You know, get the mood built appropriately.

And it's only natural to start building that mood about when Vanessa meets up with Madlax, right?


But driving in my car this morning, Salva Nos popped up on my MP3 player. Salva Nos is not only threatening to break my resolve on a vacation from Noir, but it's going to get me a very hefty speeding ticket. That lil' Jag doesn't balk at pushing 3 digits on lonely back roads. Not even in the slightest. Heh.

Anyway, a point of trivia to look out for if you get the "Ayu leak". On the R2 DVD extras, there's a version of the opening animation for "the pilot". Ayu is using that one with this leak instead of the one that aired. See if you can spot the difference!
