YMMV / Madlax

  • Awesome Music: Yuki Kajiura delivers yet again.
  • Die for Our Ship: Limelda, for the Madlax/Vanessa shippers. And Vanessa, for Madlax/Limelda shippers... oh, wait.
  • Foe Yay: Limelda vs. Madlax. Limelda even goes as far as to say "I love you, Madlax." during Episode 20 when she's about to snipe Madlax.
  • Les Yay: Plenty as the series goes on, most noticeably between Vanessa and Madlax (and to a lesser extent, Elenore). Limelda's obsession with Madlax also borders on Foe Yay.
    • Madlax sees herself as the Prince Charming that's supposed to protect the Princess (who's Vanessa in this case) during Episode 12.
    • When Elenore reveals that she's accompanying Margaret to Gazth-Sonika in Episode 17, Margaret smiles and says "I love you." to Elenore. The word Margaret uses here is daisuki which is a very strong word in Japanese for liking someone in that way.
  • Moe: Madlax oh so much.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: Actually, it was, if you count alcohol as a drug. The director came up with many of the plot twists while drunk. Surprisingly, they still make sense if you watch it while sober.
  • The Woobie: Most of the main characters.
