Throwback Ad Thursday: Noir

ADV Films certainly had reason to claim that Noir was the "most anticipated anime release of 2003." Back in 2002 ADV first announced that they had licensed the series, but for over a year there were constant "hints, announcements and retractions," as Anime News Network put it, while following ADV's then-current acquisition reports.

ADV spread the 26-episode series over 7 volumes and, while the first release had five episodes, the subsequent volumes only had three to four episodes per disc. Funimation eventually took over the license and released the complete series in 2011 on DVD and, more recently, gave Noir the Blu-ray treatment in 2015.
