Film Noir (chapter) is the 22nd overall chapter of Tegami Bachi Manga
While trying to keep up with Niche when nearing the outskirts of the town, Lag discovers a strange gaichuu not encountered before. Lag finds Noir's empty cartridges and attempts to fire a shindan to reveal Noir's heart, but it doesn't reveal much.
Lag watches Gauche's flashbacks and sees Lawrence asking him to join Reverse, and then gave a girl to assist him. Noir (Gauche at first in the vision) had the girl take him to visit places that his former self once lived.
They both watched the Bee Hive and later Sylvette from a distance. The girl showed Noir a failed experiment from Akatsuki who is washed ashore, and explains that the government was trying to recreate ancient spirits. She reveals that she is one of the experiments that managed to live and escaped. Later, Noir threw away his former identity (Gauche) and took on the name of Noir, Lawrence's personal marauder. The vision concludes.
