I fucking hate when a series sets up a really good romance but doesn't seal the deal. I mean it's pretty much confirmed that Rock and Revy get together, but shit man. Just have them kiss or hug or hold hands or something man. Something as small is the cigarette kiss in the 7th episode would be perfect.

I just hate Romance blue balls

Dude, just read some doujinshis. Rock and Revy's lack of overt romance is one of the best facets of Black Lagoon.

I, for one, am waiting for the moment she realizes he's worse than she is and has to put him down. You can only kick the puppy so long before it grows teeth of its own.

Granted, they made him a total douche in the Roberta Blood Trail OAV, but the manga is much more subtle. He's not the naive white knight anymore. And Chang and Balalaika already know he has the potential to be something formidable.

>>100392089
But he also hit a huge low point.
The whole thing was a huge wakeup call for him and that his actions have consequences.

Same.

I think what's annoying is that the authors constantly hint at the unrealized possibilities without ever delivering anything.

It's fine to create a show without romance. It's fine to create a show where it's made clear that the romances will not be realized. It's also fine to create a show where romances are realized. It's also fine to create a show where romantic relationships don't work out and the reasons are made explicit.

But because Serialized Manga is a cancerous medium that degrades the quality of most stories told through it, what we get are indefinitely postponed relationships with no conclusions. This is done because providing romantic conclusions risks the perpetuity of the manga. So we get "misunderstandings" and avoided confessions constantly, sending us the message that "something is there" without providing the satisfaction of it.

Unfortunately, this method is good at attracting fanbases, fanbases ensure that anime adaptations will sell, and that there is a merchandise market. So these kinds of stories are adapted regularly.

The relationships in Naruto and Bleach are probably the worst offenders in recent memory. Ranma 1/2 is also roughly as bad.
>>
>>100392717
Yes, it is frustrating to watch a show like that but OP using Black Lagoon as an example was just retarded

Literally throughout the manga, the revy rock pairing is shoved down your throat, you don't need to have a kiss scene for it to be 'official' in your world

I think he realized it when he took the gun from Balalaika and forced himself to watch what happened to "that brat" in Fujioka Gangster Paradise.

Until you mentioned it, I didn't realize they continued Wired Red Wild Card. Been so long since I looked for updates. Yeah, it looks like he's still straddling the Rokuro/Rock fence.

I disagree.
One of Black Lagoons charms is that the romance is used sparingly and to greater effect, as opposed to shoving it down your throat.
It's subtle.

He's basing his opinion on the relationship despite the story not being over.
He obviously never even bothered to see if there was a continuation of the story.
It's fucking arrogant and assuming.
And to answer your question, no.
They are not fucking
They aren't even in a romantic relationship.
It's a toxic, co-dependant mess. Both of them are terrible people with big issues.

Revy and Rock have been obviously together for many many arcs now. Almost since the beginning.

That one guy in charge of the bar that gets blown up all the time even asks Revy if she's had a tiff with Rock the one time she goes there alone. Also the whole 'bodyguard/I'm the bullet, you're the gun etcetc' arc. There are moe examples, eg pic related.

I know serialized manga is generally drawn out trash, but you people need to realize that rei hiroe is fucking exceptional at writing characters. Its his strongest skill, and he is so good in that specific catagory that he even shits on western writers.

Revy was raped, probably repeatedly, as a teenager. She has a confirmed past working as a dominatrix inside and outside of jail. She literally tries to kill anyone who gets emotionally close to her, and did try to do so to rock. Revy has absolutely zero experience with any type of relationship past hardcore fucking, and with how much she has done it do you really think thats what she is looking for? I would normally assume she just gets trashed at the flag and brings home whatever dude happens to be beside her, but with rock in the picture she probably got frustrated with that a long time ago. I'd bet my computer tower she wasn't getting off anyways. Revy has to be living the celibate lifestyle, not because shes pure, but because shes so fucked up.

Rock is just a pussy japanese using her. I haven't seen any indication that he cares about her at all past crediting her with starting his descent into bullshitery. Seriously, never. Not once. Rock is the biggest piece of shit in this show so why the hell would he be in a romance with ANY of the characters? No need to waste time when she already does everything he wants. You guys need to look at the signs before bitching about shipping.

The sexual tension is more than enough, if you want to live vicariously through anime in order to alleviate your soul-crushing loneliness, I'd advise you to look elsewhere.

Forcing a romance between Revy and Rock, two incredibly self-destructive characters, would ruin the manga.
