Subject: Noir
I did my daily browse over to the Anime News Service and nearly soiled myself! *cough*

Here's the skinny:

1-6-07 (12:47PM EST)---- Unofficial Noir / Madlax Sequel - El-Cazador

Scheduled to begin broadcast in April, 2007 is the El-Cazador anime TV series. Confirmed staff include Dirtector: Koichi Mashimo (Noir, Eat Man, .Hack), Character Designs: Yoko Kikuchi (Noir), Series Composition: Kanemaki Kenichi (Jigoku Shoujo), Music: Yuki Kajiura (Noir, Eat Man, . Hack), Animation Production: Bee Train. Official Site: The story centers on characters Ellice and bounty hunter Nadi.

I'm searching everywhere for more, but coming up short.

Discussion and rumors/speculation can be had over on the Bee Train Fan forum, as usual.
