There's one thing that always bothered me about Noir:
I don't know if Mireille and Kirika's ages were ever given (if they were I missed it), but I would place Mireille in her mid to late twenties, and Kirika no more than twenty, possibly even eighteen. When it's revealed that Kirika is the one who murdered Mireille's parents and older brother, Mireille appears to be about seven or eight, and assuming that she's a least five years older than Kirika, that would put Kirika's age at two or three.
Now I'm all for suspending disbelief while watching anime, but Noir is a bit more realistic than most (no aliens, magic, etc.; the settings are real places, and the Soldats seem to based off the Freemasons), so it seems odd to me that it would end up that a two-year-old was the assassin, using a gun that was almost as big as she was, and should have had enough recoil to knock her on her butt.
I suppose there was no other logical outcome that would have tied the story together, and the last few eps would have been completely different (and not nearly as good) had Kirika not been the killer. Still, I never really could get past the age thing.

Still, Asian girls always look younger then they are. It's hard to say if the shown student ID and passport information can be trusted, as after all, their forged documents...
