I'll be very blunt. Anyone who wants to see a voluptious big-breasted mercenary with 2 pairs of guns (yes, I said 2 pairs; guess which ones I'm referring to :o ) in a gritty contempory atmosphere blowing stuff up, this series delivers it!

This is also including some really kickass action sequences from Madhouse (which I'm surprised that it's really fluid; I REALLY hope they don't drop the ball with this one), and a hard rock/techno OP song from I've Sound MELL (see, they don't just do J-pop songs for cutesy bishoujo series :wink: ).

From the looks of the credits, it seems like Geneon USA was involved in the production of the series, so I guess I can make an assumption that this got prelicensed. :roll:

The series is definitely worth a look, who can resist a semi-psychotic woman with big guns. The main male character is amusingly pathetic without taking it to exaggerated heights. I thought the action sequences were generally nice, though it would be nice if the laws of physics weren't completely missing at times.

Hiroe is the SHIZNIT!! [look at the manga for this series, if it comes here, hopefully CMX won't fuck it up and maybe a good company will get it. His art is SEXY GOOD...]

Azasuke Wind [doujin artist of cg] seems to have an addiction to the manga as well [his art of the characters is smoking hot...]

And yeah, Levi r0x0rs me c0x0rs...

:shock: I'd like to get into her shorts... :wink: [while she's still wearing them of course...]

I wonder if the Red Fraction single is out...

I've sounds punk techno is equal to their trance-goa style songs...

I love I've Sound, they do everything...

And to think they "humbly" started in the realm of h-game intros! :D

And thus the action scene that defies all of physics! It's almost like a Hollywood action flick. Now all we need are flying white doves to appear out of nowhere. :lol:

I love the little mischievous things we see on Levi in the intro... ["you" drawn on cheek with raspberry, very tasty... lyrical synch? w00t]

The song is in Engrish too! anyone got something that resembles the lyrics...?

I'll try to see if I can hear it out... lol

Gotta love the butt shots of Levi fiddling with her 9mm cutlass sword in the intro as well...

yay* :D

Black Lagoon has just as much badittude as Speed Grapher. Unlike the latter, it knows exactly what to do with it.

Verdict: f-ing awesome!

Oddly enough, simply reading this thread last week didn't inspire me to check out this show... truely bizarre since tits, guns, and ass-whoopin combined are consistently a part of my diet. 8-)

My F/SN DVD2 though arrived on Sat with a nice Geneon ad/catalog and inside was was this tasty layout.

SOLD! :shock:

Episode 3 was indeed PURE BADASS!!! Levi was like jumping boat to boat wasting guys and blowing up their boats in the process while listening to some hard techno music. You should have seen how she handled that grenade launcher. HOT DAMN!!! 8-)
