Is there anything sf/f about Noir?
It would appear not based on the wikipedia. Only realism-based.

Unlike its spiritual successor Madlax, Noir is mainly about reality's criminal underworld while Madlax is about supernatural events.
Noir was followed by two spiritual successors, Madlax [2002 anime] and El Cazador de la Bruja [anime starting 2007. Together, these series constitute a trilogy exploring the "girls-with-guns" genre.
Bee Train also did Requiem for the Phantom as well which also features a female assassin as one of the main characters.
