Madlax

Madlax (マドラックス) is a 26-episode Japanese anime television series produced in 2004 by the Bee Train animation studio. The story revolves around two young women who seemingly have little in common and do not know of the other’s existence at the beginning. The eponymous Madlax is a legendary mercenary and assassin in the fictional civil war-torn country of Gazth-Sonika, who cannot remember her past or indeed her real name before twelve years ago, when the war started. The other main character is Margaret Burton, the sole heir of a wealthy aristocratic family in the peaceful European country Nafrece. Twelve years before the story begins, an airliner Margaret and her mother were on crashed over Gazth-Sonika, and its passengers, as well as Margaret’s father who led the rescuers, have been missing ever since. Margaret, however, mysteriously traveled back to Nafrece on her own, losing her memories prior to her return; the only thing she recalls is a single word, “Madlax”. With this thread linking the two girls, they both independently start investigating the powerful crime syndicate Enfant after its enigmatic mastermind shows interest in both of them.

The story is quite slow paced, as it is in all of Bee-Train’s “Girls with Guns” anime, but once the plot picks up…it REALLY picks up. I, personally, was sort of confused with the plot and had to re-watch the last few episodes to really understand what was going on. It is quite good though, and keeps you interested with its twists and turns, especially for the last six episodes or so. This show starts out slow, so you may find it boring in between plot points. But the action sequences that are in this show, although they’re sort of exaggerated, are very entertaining to watch. Overall though, it was a very entertaining series, which I could probably re-watch a few more times before getting bored with it. This show is definitely not for everyone because of it’s slow pace, but once you get past that, it really is a good anime with mostly good points, that’ll have you wanting more in the end.
