I liked the anime. Storyline is a bit bland,but character dynamics between Revy and Rock make up for it.
Also,action is amazing.
But,is manga worth reading?
I heard good things about it.
I also hear it's been on hiatus for a while.
why don't they just fug already
Revy's vag is probably a fucking lovecraftian monster.
It's really good, and Rei Hiroe is a massively cool dude, but I liked the anime more at least until the OVA.
Fujiyama Gangsta Paradise is still one of my favorite arcs in anime to date.
Revi is my waifu.
The only example of anime where dub is superior in every way over sub.
>Rei Hiroe is a massively cool dude
Then why did he stop writing Black Lagoon just because a couple of readers talked shit about the new arc being boring? Why not just get over his butt-hurt and give the series a proper ending at least?
Yeah whatever, revy sounds like a fuckin 12 year old
You should watch Baccano!
In japanese version Revy sounded to me like some japanese chick #79.
Dub was just more memorable.
She sounded like manly ass smoke a pack every day banchou
Also I can't tell seiyuus apart either but because they are adaptable as fuck not because they all sound the same
> just because a couple of readers talked shit about the new arc being boring?
You ave a source on that?
The only waifu that isn't for faggots.
Eh, the prevalence of women in BL is too high for me to suspend my disbelief.
I mean, eveyone knows they can't do shit in real life.
Well,if unofficial statistics aren't bullshit,most hired assassins in the world are women.
Women know their gunz,yo.
they probably did.
Volume 7, chapter 54, Rock was talking to Revy sitting right on her bed and in her room. In the morning.
I'm afraid she's everyones waifu.
Mine aswell though. God I want her to own me.
Actually, it's most likely because they can get close to the target, which itself is because most people important enough to be assassinated agree with the post you're responding to.
Except most of them mostly use poison etc. Black widow shit. And you are also wrong.
But neither of that matter, because NOTHING can explain motherfucking Roberta
you have a point.
But Rock is allowed to see her half-naked and just sit on her bed, to say the least
That should imply something for an ordinary female, though we all know Revy isn't one of them
I'm fairly certain they do bang on a regular basis, but in a casual manner.
And I bet she is pretty rough on him too.
you have a point.
But Rock is allowed to see her half-naked and just sit on her bed, to say the least
That should imply something for an ordinary female, though we all know Revy isn't one of them
That would affect Revy's personality greatly and their relationship. Which seems pretty non-sexual
Although,there is a tension...
>tfw you will never be dominated by Revyi
Why would she want to own you? What you can possibly offer to her that she can't take anyway?
I like to imagine that she turns into a complete sub in bed and then threatens to kill you if you tell anybody.
A sense of power.
Damnit anon, it's like you don't even understand BDSM
sub or dub
She obviously likes him.
Too bad poor guy always gets cock blocked by the mangaka.
Dub is superior. Don't listen to weebs.
I almost always recommend sub over dub but in the case for BL I'd definitely go with Dub instead.
The voice acting for the dub is better. A lot of the Japanese voices are more monotonous and toned down. Also, the dub has over the top accents and stereotypes that add to the ridiculousness of the series.
>Liking Edgy MLP: the Anime
He's doing rock a favor. Never stick your dick in crazy.
But I totally would, crazies are the most thrilling.
I bet Revy is an absolute tiger in the sack and the sense of impending doom turns me the fuck on.
It's like you don't understand your waifu. She doesn't play safe or sane and consensual is just a meaningless word with ten letters for her.
>She sounded like manly ass smoke a pack every day banchou
That's exactly who she was though.
Or maybe she's disgusted by sex..Considering [she was raped/spoiler]
>implying it's not a front
>implying being raped didn't destroy her emotionally
>implying she doesn't crave a sense of control in her life
>uzipped shorts all the time
Okay,I get it. Revy is sexy.
But this shit is for 13 year olds.
She HEAVILY implies it herself.
Also, lesbian prison sex, you can assume that revy absolutely knows her shit.
I bet she'll break down crying the first time she has meaningful sex.
its off hiatus
Dub, by far.
I normally say sub but the fact that canonically all the main cast are speaking in English and Geneon made sure the dubbing didn'tt suck really brings in the immersion.
And that Revy's seiyuu Engrish is hilariously atrocious.
Probably,and it won't be with Rock.
When will Revy find out that Rock is Kira?
That's why she would be a total Dom. It would be a cover to protect herself emotionally.
Facades upon facades, anon.
>you will never cradle a sexually exhausted revy in your arms while her emotional barricades crumble as she begs you never to leave her and she cries herself to sleep on your chest
It will probably play out something like it did in Berserk.
>you will never subsequently get shot after she's piled so many death flags on you
I remember I used to like BL five years ago or so, now I think it's cheesy and pretentious.
Nice buzzwords mate.
/a/'s buzzword of the month. BL is almost the exact opposite of pretentious. It's over the top in how much it accepts its shallowness.
Yeah,those 2deep scene were too much for me,seriously..
Always liked this scene.
It's interesting that she was ready to kill him few minutes before it.
Never watched the dub, but yep, that vid confirmed that it sucks.
Stop trying to fit in fag
But everyone here is saying the dub is better how is he trying to fit in?
I beg your pardon?
>cursor on screen
she's had so much dick she probably has meat curtains
>having loads of sex.
>Never watched the DUB, but yep, that vid confirmed that it sucks
It is just me or this anon said that the dub suck?
Never noticed it.
I'm watching this anime right now.
D-did they just mutilate a child and left it to bleed out slowly?
>Still thinkin OVAs are canon
>implying everyone that gets raped or sexually molested never have sex afterwards
way to drone, anon
Actually that is kind of true... I'm talking about experience
so am i
not personal obviously,
but one girl in highschool i was in got raped (or so she claims) and after a year was back to fucking people normally
That's called being a slut
my point still stands
not everyone is like the people you see in drama films
Tell that to Miura...
... berserk author?
Although,that was a demonic rape by a man she considered her idol.
>Rock is Kira
chapter 87 when?
I think the fact why that kid slaughtered dozens of russian mafia men is a bigger question.
I thought it's a question that kid got all his skills from kinky porno
Rare instance where dub is just flat out better than the sub, I don't know if it's just the over the top cursing and shitty accents that add to the unlawful nature of the series, it just works.
>watching Rambo with tits:The Anime
Over-the-top violence aside, I surprised at how well-researched the twins' backstory was. Apparently Communist Romania did institute an insane anti-abortion, anti-contraception policy, resulting in hundreds of thousands of unwanted children.
Only reason I already knew that is because I have a friend that was a product of that. Was adopted and brought back to US.
What makes you say that?
>Fujiyama Gangsta Paradise is still one of my favorite arcs in anime to date.
The Greenback Jane arc is fucking mental.
And more Shenhua!
>Eh, the prevalence of women in BL is too high for me to suspend my disbelief.
Yeah, we get it, you're a misogynist.
>implying Balalaika isn't the best 'mob boss' character in anime
The "I said KNEEL!" in the dub was approximately a million times better than that shit.
the fucker deserved it for fucking with balalaikas comrades.
But the death of the girl caught me off guard
Nothing felt as great in BL then watching the boy get that fucking smug look wiped off his stupid face.
The rest of that episode was too much for me, I just didn't buy that these kids were able to kill so many people, especially the one with the Axe taking out people with automatic weapons.
Balalaika's VA nailed every scene..
It's a pretty well known fact. There are a lot of cliches involving Romanian orphans in Hollywood. For a Japanese show though, it's impressive that they know Romania even exists.
Around Half of MLP cast is in BL
This is one of the reason we have so little BL threads now
If you mean in the Dub, I agree. She perfectly pulled off the arrogance, experience and toughness.
Balalaika is such a great character though, what I like best about her is she's not really portrayed as one of the good guys, she's consistent throughout the anime at least, she's ready to praise Rock in once scene and threatening to kill him on a mere slight the next.
You can really buy the fact that she's supposed to be this deadly woman and the head of a Russian Crime Organisation.
I think she crossed the fucking line sending Rock that photo att he end of the Fujiyama Arc though.
Well in BL there's one of the few non-racist portrait of a Jew showed in a manga
There was a law in communist Romania that required from every couple to have at least two children. Otherwise they would be sanctioned.
I'm from Serbia,and a lot of people escaped here from Romania during the communist rule. We heard stories...
what a stupid reason, also
I wish Dutch was in the anime more, he's barely in the 6 or so episode long Fujiyama Arc.
It's just Revy Revy Revy.
The nazi episodes are GOAT
>It's just Revy Revy Revy.
We gotta sell it to them horny teenagers,nigga.
They were the target audience after all.
>Implyin I Watch MPL
First time i watched the arc I said:Jesus,why Garth Ennis is writing a Japanese anime?
I didn't mean specifically you
>my pony little
The way the Nazi so politely tells Dutch that he sincerely hopes black people will one day be wiped off the face of the earth is hilarious.
That scene in the submarine when Revy goes from comedic-relief bad-ass action hero to the nihilistic grave robber was my favourite part.
I loved that whole conversation.
Dutch is best lagoon
I thought Rock was full of shit in that part, about stealing from the dead.
He was. Revy was right.
But that whole:"I'll kill you if you ever try to say what's right to me again" was too much.
>you will never be a pirate in the southeast asian sea doing pirate stuff with your pirate gang
let that sink in
>not the courier business
It's hard being a pirate in that region with China, Vietnam and Thailand all exerting naval power. You're better off pirating near africa.
Black Lagoon ostensibly takes place in the early 90s, back when the South China Sea was the world's piracy hotspot. The various regional navies have cleaned it up since then.
>Black Lagoon ostensibly takes place in the early 90s
Then,how do you explain discs and modern lap tops?
>implying cd's and laptops didn't exist in the 90s
I said "ostensibly", didn't I? Hiroe decided to put in stuff from the early 2000s for whatever reason, but the setting is explicitly stated to be the 90s.
No, he has a point, though cell phones and laptops existed, the models shown in Black Lagoon didn't come out until the mid-00s in most cases.
I'd sign up for this. I know how to operate most small boats and I have a shit ton of chemistry knowledge.
I guess, but perhaps the artist was only familiar with modern laptops/cellphones and drew them as such. I still have my beloved compaq armada
Well seems he started setting BL in the early '00 (remember the Ground Zero Joke?),then He step back to the mid '90s but he kept the aerly '00 technology
Why didn't Revy and Rock had a single tender moments except for that cigar kiss?
I'm an anime newfag.
But it seems there is a lot of cock-blocking by the author in a lot of series.
>Implying being a glorified prostitute and stabbing them in the face when they are asleep from fucking you is hard.
All you need to be a female "hitman" is good looks and the nerve to kill someone when they are sleeping.
>Rambo with Femdom
Well,it doesn't mean there aren't any women assassins who are great with guns.
>tfw you'll never meet a qt hitman
I can live with that.
This is is every SJWs wet fantasy. But I like it.
Finally all women characters weren't written like shit.
I thought this was going to turn into a BL manga thread. ; ;
The anime is good but the feel of the manga doesn't compare. The expressions, the dialogue, it's dark and morbid. Real shit, not edgy.
One of the few manga that gave me the same vibe was Front Mission.
>Wanting to live with the fact that a hitman chick will never be into you
Sounds good to me. Will read it.
After Berserk,nothing seems too long...
>liking fried meat
>Dutch is actually black
>They're supposed to be speaking English
>Good voice acting
I love Balalaika's dub voice so much...
>Balaika's sub voice sounds like a bored old Japanese lady
Balalaika's dub voice is way better than this.
Yes, manga is really good. It's out of hiatus and Rock did nothing wrong.
>Rock did nothing wrong.
His moralfaggotry finally made him screw up?
His already kinda left his moralfaggotry in the animo itself but no, that was not it.
Sawyer a best
Yeah after that a lot of unwanted children ended up in orphanages and they weren't really cared for. And with little to no affection from adults during their first two years of life most, if not all, became sociopaths.
The shit that was on the news in the 90s man. There was some real Hannibal Lector shit going down.
There's still fucked up shit going on from time to time, but it's nowhere near as frequent as it was back then.
Man that's nothing, I just started reading one piece like 3 days ago after dropping the anime years back. I JUST got to Alabasta and there's like 600 chapters left.
Does your mother know you're a pleb?
Shieeet. Does the quality holds up?
It sounds like one of those Bleach-like weekly mangas with minimum details in art.
>Misspellling her name
She isn't if you do that.
Well,her real name isn't Revy to begin with..
Can't wait for next chapter.
I like where this is going.
Art's pretty damn good actually, though Oda's noodle-people character designs take some getting used to.
And yeah, overall I'd say it's really good. Only complaints are that the characters are fairly two-dimensional except for maybe Usopp. Also I still hate Luffy, but he's had his moments.
Well then you'll have to wait for another month or two until the author gets off his ass and writes a new chapter.
>inb4 it's another 12 page chapter
All of my favorite manga's are on hiatus.
I'm used to pain.
Also I should add that the 2D-ness of the characters is probably intentional, they're simplified for the kind of grand childish adventure feel One Piece is going for. That might not be to your tastes however.
That lucky son of a bitch... ;_;
You realize this is complete and utter bullshit?
Is Rock older then Revy?
If I've watched the anime should I just read the manga from the start or start from a later chapter, I heard the last arc featured in the anime is very different from how the manga did it
>being this pessimistic
It probably is... ;_;
Jap Arc (Different Ending,Yukio character is way different in the latter part)
Greenback Jane (More jokes,also Manga Sawyer>>Anime Sawyer)
El Baile de la Muerte (Very Different from OVAs)
Rock,let's go Bowling
Twins Arc is one of my personal favourites. Just saying
Did the new chapter get translated?
Roberta best Lagoon
>HHWHAAH THA FAWK BOOLSHAT!
>DEED YOH JUS CASS AT MEH YOUH DEED!
>WELL YOH GOHNNA GIBE ME IT GOOFBAWL!
>ALL THAS REF NOW EEZ TO MAP UP DA PRACE!
That entire fucking episode. Oh my god.
>not watching Rambo with tits:The Anime
Are you some kind of fag?
What are you sayin',chimp?
>set in the mid 90s
Just think how old they must be in present time
Her empire was probably over taken by some Thai mafia and she was raped to death.
The entire crew probably died once the scene got too hot and they had to go fuck around in Africa.
You have little faith
>mfw Revy,Rock and all the people around that age are in their 40's
>mfw Dutch is in his 70's
Bala is in her 50s or 60s
Early thirties actually
Not in present time.
>woman in her early thirties
>leading an criminal organization
Makes sense. She had to be around 20-22 in Afghanistan
This thread's theme
Does she ever get bested in the manga?
Eda is top dog anyway
oops, wrong thread
>Just do it
She doesn't phase Bala
this dub is probably the only dub that's better than the original. Its perfect how all the different mobsters (italian, cartels, russians, chineses etc) had believable accents
Cause' she comes from Langley? Nah, in the Hansel and Gretel episodes, Balalaika ordered her and Revy to be shot for getting in the way, she doesn't care.
damn you anon, why did you have to give me such powerful feels
>Its perfect how all the different mobsters (italian, cartels, russians, chineses etc) had believable accents
Shenhua's chinglish is glorious.
I agree, though this anime feels very "unanimeske", it's more like a john woo movie.
tfw no Black Lagoon vidya
shenhua is glorious
Shenhua is gorgeous
On a random note, I watched this series after reading this book on non- state warfare in urban environments. (pic related) It brought a whole new perspective to the concepts of competitive control among non- state actors operating in a "feral" city. I thought it was pretty cool and all from that perspective.
Is it implied that the pleb who helps her after the Greenback Jane arc get to shag her?
None of the Saints Row games are anything like BL.
rotten is pure
I'll look into this, looks interesting
Rock is young as fuck.
The series starts in at least 1995.
Rock was born 49th year of the Showa period, which is '75-'76
So in 1995, he's only 19-20.
Most people think that 1-2 years have passed since he joined Lagoon Crew.
Revy is closer to 30 from what I can tell. Like 27 or 28.
More like 25.
But she could be younger.
She seems old because of her eyes and her bitterness.
There's really no clear indication of her age.
Good call, read about the nature of irregular conflict in the future, about uncontrolled cities combined with urbanization and movement to littoral areas. Compare it to some of the issues presented in Black Lagoon. Non- state actors like mafia and pirates take over.
I'm just spitballing.
She feels like 25 to me.
Gentlemen, it is time.
I'd say she's 25-27
I do not have a single clue what is going on.
Have people seriously not seen it yet?
>Revy being friendly with all the strippers
Where can I buy one?
People in the thread are still talking about "waiting for the new chapter to release", so yes.
Because she was one.
Shit, they might be at the place she used to work.
She probably knows all the bitches there.
I wouldn't exactly call it friendly, she just doesn't think they're dirt like most people.
I remember when Hiroe shiting about scanlators groups.
Glasses chink is cute as fuck
Hiroe just hate people who read and never buy the manga.
>look at all the fucks I give
>she just doesn't think they're dirt like most people.
Because she was one.
She's a filthy homewrecking whore with a great ass.
I know that. Pretty sure they are at Julian's strip bar, where she used to work
>Hiroe twitter(pic related).
Can't be sure until the translation comes out.
OK, I take it back. Revy is pretty fucking friendly with the strippers.
She wasn't a stripper.
I bought every volume and DVDs and about the buy all the BDs
He better step the fuck up
>Can't be sure until the translation comes out
We already have confirmation from early on in the series.
Looks like Feng is hiding out at the strip club. Might be what Revy did at one point.
She did sm shows but she probably worked at the same bar and knows everyone
>I hope the imbeciles worshipping the imbecile who uploaded that are diagnosed with a never before seen and never to be seen again illness and die in the most ridiculous fashion, so as to be remembered only in medical annals by doctors laughing about how they died.
How can one man be so based, this is literally the only manga I own, and in shit spanish version at that.
That was kinda ambiguous. I'm guessing the translation will confirm, but I can be sure.
Your shit edtion is better than my hueland version.
Who the fuck are these people?
Not if you are from argentina it ain't, it's the equivalent of a murrican having to read a manga translated to cockney.
That girl. I want to know who she is.
New reaction image acquired
>That was kinda ambiguous
No it wasn't
People argue whether she fucked people, but there's no question she did s&m shows.
It's Benny, after the surgery
Is that one of the italians?
Are those LCD monitors?
Has Hiroe forgotten what year it's supposed to be?
amazon, at least I got it there.
It's never said what she did, only that it "involved whipping".
He got the cell phones right though.
No man, that's clearly an old monitor.
Third panel where they're facing away. Definitely looks like the back of an LCD.
Next week on Black Lagoon! We figure out what these crazy moonpeople are saying!
Nah, the edges are too bulky.
Hiroe forgets his tech levels all the time.
The perspective's just off. Look behind Revy in the last panel
Should have kept Revy's big tits damnit
Hiroe has terrible consistency when it comes to that.
Chinky has been slowly growing curvier the more she shows up.
Revy's tits were never particularly big.
I hate to say it though, but that entire page is kinda off model.
Her tits were bigger earlier on. Then he made them smaller
If Revy was a car, what kind of car would she be?
No, he just isn't consistent.
Mach 1 Mustang
Loud, good looking and full of America
she was also more asian looking
>Mach 1 Mustang
But she isn't pigfat, anon.
You can't say no to that body
U wot m8?
NOT a Corvette.
Because she's not good enough to be this car.
Eda is the corvette.
What's Balalika and Roberta?
I can only see Eda driving that
Not a Pontiac Firebird. Known to be one of the fastest big block muscle cars.
Robera would be low-rida with hydraulics.
Bala would be hatchback playing electo and hit every other car on the road.
Nobody is good enough.
And then there's this guy.
Not a muscle car.
>Japanese car made in 2007
Does South America even make cars?
>implying Roberta's machine like ability doesn't match
>implying a SpecV or Nismo isn't Roberta on pills
Nothing good enough for Roberta
Unless it's a severely modified Opala SS or Maverick
And like a GTR, she broke down multiple times.
Glorious Corvette will last a thousand years, because plastic isn't biodegradable.
Sorry I can't hear you over those LS7 heads dropping valves and grenading the engine
>look up south American supercars
MY EYES, IT BURNS
I can't understand you over the sound of the techs installing ANOTHER transmission.
Has the same 455 as a GTO. You mad bro?
>turn on ZR1
>this voids the warranty
It doesn't matter what engine is in it, it's not a muscle car.
>Get water on GTR
>This voids the warrantly.
Although strangely enough, all the Z06 drivers and the ZR1 driver in my area (at least the ones that come to meets) have voided warranties.
Dat track time.
>implying you managed to keep yours in warranty
>Also,action is amazing.
I like the show, but that's a lie.
TIME FOR JORMUNGAND BY HIROE
Who would be the honda S2000?
I'll get a used one at some point. I realise now it's useless to worry about a dealer because no one else here does that.
If it breaks i'm just going to have to suck it up for a while
Maybe a Puma GT? Don't know a whole lot about them, but I've heard they're kinda neat
It's a beetle with a nice looking body
C-can we talk about girls with guns series now?
save for the fact that its totally fucking canon, even if they only fully showed it in the OVA, the flash backs in the regular series with the feathers from the pillow she uses to suppress the gun are there.
Is this nigger serious?
>nobody likes Greenback Jane
>we don't even get a decent vanilla doujin
>liking slutback jane
Haven't had problems with VLC myself, /a/ is just full of mumbling autists.
I'd kill for a Zero In anime
MPC has not had issues in the past like VLC and has better support.
The screencap taking system is slightly better too.
>past issues and poor supporting structure
VLC is Revy?
Is he crazy japanese? Dude, WTF.
Translation of pic?
Don't do that.
Something about the the year 2000. I don't really speak moon.
nigga you retarded
Yup she was just a slut who regretted sleeping with some nignog and to save her self from the humiliation she just said it was rape.
Even if she was actually raped she was probably a slut who was begging for it
>begging for it
We now await the tumblr landwhales
>Even if she was actually raped she was probably a slut who was begging for it
