  • The outstanding times, they just keep a coming with "Black Lagoon!"

    Yet another wonderfully, delightful, and "on the edge of your chair" episode of "Black Lagoon!"? This episode continues the action from the first episode of the series and gives us a complete Rock shows off his insane attitude and mind to the benefit of everyone plus he still can't leave his Japanese businessman When at work, he wears his "business uniform" and only wears the Hawaiian shirt bought for him by Revy after Honestly, it is Rock who binds everyone Yes, the other crew members have their own wonderful flavor and delightful level of insanity, but Rock is the one who stirs the pot and melds them into a flavorful dish for your mind and imagination!



    I know a show is outstanding, when I can't wait for the commercial to be over and I'm willing to watch during the broadcast instead of waiting for the OnDemand / I honestly didn't expect much from "Black Lagoon" and even considered not giving it a chance, but this episode reassures me my decision was the right one!? You can't go wrong with this episode should you have a spare 30 minutes laying around.



    In the past allowed us to rate at the point one (9.5, 9.6, 9.7, etc) and I'd rate this episode at 9.7 or Today, though, providing rating at the half point and given I always round up, a 9.7 rounds up to Honesty, the episode is NOT perfect, but given the rating gradients, we're at a 10.0 for this ~9.7 episode.



    What didn't I like?? Honestly, the commercial break during the battle between the PT boat and the While the break makes great sense from a business perspective, it broke the entire submersion of your mind into the When the action returned the brief replay of the action leading up to the finish wasn't enough to regain that same depth of submersion one had before the commercial!!



    If you want to really watch the episode correctly, you need to capture the episode, edit out the episode, and play back the PT boat / helicopter game of chicken without any breaks!! WOW is what one can expect!moreless

    The search for Roberta is still going on and Rock eventually finds her whereabouts. Everything so far in this OVA is preparing us for a full scale war, a war that Roberta brings here in Roanapur, as she feels it is the only place she can actually let her inner demons unleash. I'm glad the same Black Lagoon excitement and dialogues were kept, and not much have actually changed regarding the original series. It still has the same great amount of gore, violent dialogues, and thrilling action, so glad Black Lagoon is back (sort of), and looking forward to a proper possible Season 3. Until then this OVA does the trick.moreless
