Madlax Volume 5: Convergence
“Shows featuring girls and guns are always made more impressive with
dark, sultry atmospheres, and Madlax is no exception” (Anime News Network).
“Girls with guns” is such a rich vein of material, it never gets
tired – especially when its from BEE Train, the masterminds behind Noir!
A cold blooded gun-for-hire teams up with an unassuming high school student
to unlock the dark secret that unites them!
Synopsis: A language long forgotten has awakened – and anyone who has
allowed it to cross either their eyes or lips has felt its eerie repercussions.
Just as detective Maclay Morini was closing in on a murder case, the words entranced
him into mindless drone. Literary researcher Eric Gillian sought out the language’s
origin and ultimately committed suicide. Now, Madlax and Margaret Burton are
on the verge of discovering the true meaning behind the words’ powers.
Then we have Enfant, the secretly controlled hub overlooking the transfer of
all the world’s digital data. Led by the mysterious Friday Monday, the
Enfant network is a clandestine conglomerate of the powerful, the loyal and
those unaware of the deceptive depths to which they are involved. Enfant sees
all. Enfant knows all. Enfant is responsible for the deaths of Piederica and
Anne Moray, the disappearance of Chris Krana, and most importantly, Enfant is
the force perpetuating the war in Gazth-Sonika. And now, Enfant is after Madlax
and Vanessa Rene.
