Whoa, this hit me hella hard, and that OST
Such a dick(great) move by the writer.
He made us actually feel pity for the girl and then BAM.
Me and my friend were cheering when those little shits died.
I wish they could have killed the Columbian shouta too.
I hate most 2D children.
I picked this show up a few days ago, almost marathoned both seasons. Such an amazing action show with top tier writing. Fuck yeah Revvy
At least Rock got his present before that..
She showed him her dick.
Was that Hansel or Gretel?
I don't remember
>implying that their genitals weren't so mutilated that the only way they could tell each other apart was the costumes
It was the girl, so it's Gretel.
I warned you 'bout dem Russians, nigga!
Dem Russians don't play!
Was it implied? by the puke?
I was going to start a thread, but here it is.
Would Revy have let Rock catch that beating from that Yakuza sack of shit if he hadn't ditched her at the fair to drink sake with that girl?
Best scene in Black Lagoon.
They were there to translate, not stir shit up.
Do you know how mad balalkia would have been if they had gotten into a fight with the people she was there to do business with.
>Rock will never have some "three is company" action with Revy and Eda
Given the position they were in they couldn't afford to make trouble there, as it might have caused Balalaika problems with her "negotiations." Revy, being Revy, didn't give one tenth of a stale shit about any of that, but Rock had already told her to chill so she bit her tongue.
You'll notice she took no joy in watching him get shit stomped and really wanted to kill ol' Chaka right then and there. So yeah, I wouldn't call it payback, seemed more like obligation. Hell, if she'd been that pissed off I expect she'd have put a couple in Chaka just to relieve the tension.
Revy doesn't seem like the "sharing is caring" type and considering her implied background, she's probably had more than enough of getting intimate with multiple partners.
Eda...yeah, she probably wasn't joking. Haha.
Eda obviously wants Rock's cock. It'll probably take a little while longer for Revy to come round, she might get jealous of Eda rockin' the Rock and want in on the action too.
I don't really think Eda is like that.
The CIA doesn't fuck around.
>You'll will never have some "three is company" action with Revy and Valmet.
In the back of my head, I hear the voice of my old high school Spanish teacher getting on someone's case for saying YOO-RUG-WAY instead of OO-ROOG-WHY. Muy malo.
Eda isn't typical CIA and is willing to get her hands and any other parts of her body dirty for her own personal gain.
I don't know who this Valmer is, but I'm betting it's going to be the roughest, angriest sex ever.
Until recently I'd have probably said the same of the United States Secret Service. Funny story, that.
I don't believe you.
She is pure.
Vol. 10 when?
Chaka had beaten Rock just to get reaction from Revy. Even Rock realized that,and why he didn't fight him.
He got his payback later.
I found the OST meh, and I hate the op song.
I thought it was the girl because of the way she sang.
There's no way Hansel could mimic those singing skills.
in one or two months
>Not knowing angry Finnish lesbian goddess
but Chiquita is best
That's what your mum said last nite as I was pounding her ass
all an act.We have seen glimpses of her in Langley. Her behavior is all a ruse to 'fit' in.
>We have seen glimpses of her in Langley
Anyway I want a proper arc on Balalaika
My dick would explode if we would get Afghanistan arc.
I want more Sergeant.
I was thinking this morning about this exact scene, what are the chances?
>Leaving the Army and joining the mafia
>Fighting in early 90s civil conflicts
Why do people try to find some kind of romance in everything that happens to involve Revy and Rock?
How do we know she wasn't just trying to fit in back in Virginia? Put on the hard working super serious spy act for the instructors and higher ups, then once she starts doing field work she lets her hair down and starts playing fast and loose.
I mean, wasn't she a cheerleader when she was in high school? Cheerleaders are always sluts. I'm pretty sure that's like, the eleventh commandment or something.
>fucking with ex-Spetznaz soldiers who bonded over wars in Afghanistan and are led with a milf with a bad attitude
You don't do this shit and expect to come out alive.
It's one of people's favorite OTPs..
But,yeah you're right. This shit had nothing to do with romance. It was just about keeping it cool.
Alpha >> Spetznaz
You mean those poor fucks who were sent to track down and kill Roberta?
I'm starting to forget Black Lagoon.
implying it was the girl
>Cheerleaders are always sluts
I wish my high school had cheerleaders back then
Rock called her "she" even after she/he showed him her/his genitals.
Well, I'd say it was more than just being business. Perhaps not romance, but at the very least personal friendship played a role.
Keep in mind that Revy is a volatile, violent bitch. She is not known for her subtlety and self control. The fact that she was able to control herself with some pissant yuppie trying his hardest to push her buttons, mainly because Rock told her to, is actually a bit touching.
I'd say she backed down more out of fear of Hotel Moscow, but that little John Woo standoff with fryface and sarge kinda blows that theory all to hell.
I thought they were VDV paras
May be ground troops. Bala was maybe in her early 20s then not sure she would have been Spetznaz
I can't remember but, why did Balalaika came to Japan? I remember she just basically wiped out most of the Yakuza.
To take over
I think the end goal was expanding the influence of the Russian mafia into Japan, with the pretense of forming allegiances with certain Yakuza families and moving weapons for them? I vaguely remember the finer details of her purpose there, myself.
>but that little John Woo standoff with fryface and sarge kinda blows that theory all to hell.
OK,that was certainly a scene with subtle romance nuances,especially the part when Revy was pissed off at Rock for risking his life so easily.
But,I still think that scene with Chaka in the club was strictly business.
you forgot the part where "it" changed its voice to hänsel-mode?
Orders from Moscow HQ were to destroy all of the Yakuza families and take over. But Balalaika tried to do it more strategically. So, she chose to make up an alliance with one of the dominant clans(Washinime) to defeat the other clan(Kosa).
It ended in complete failure and Balalaika chose to kill 'em all. Rock influenced that decision,too.
>Balalaika chose to kill 'em all.
Good ol' Balalalalalalaika.
>kill 'em all
like a true ruskie
She learned to imitate it.
I laughed my ass off at Hansel's death, and shed a single tear at Gretel's death.
Guess it was the way the show portrayed them.
Just downloaded a batch.
What should I expect?
Shallow action series, which turns out not to be that shallow, and great characters.
I'm in the good mood. Usually I would tell you to fuck off and watch it yourself.
Gangsta shit. Terminator maids. Vampire death lolis. More gangsta shit.
We need more Chang. Russians have all the fun, where's the love for the Triad?
too busy being Eda's bitch
Nobody crosses Balalaika and walks away.
I dunno how you guys remember stuff in specific episodes. I can't remember shit after i've already finished watching something after a while.
This movie was so lame up until the final battle.
Same can be said of most John Woo films I guess.
Most John Woo gunflicks set up for the final battle. The only outstanding ones that stand on their own momentum are Once a Thief and Hard Boiled.
>Once a Thief
>Balalaika will never apologize to you for not realizing what a tough guy you are.
What does yaponski(sp) mean?
You laughed when a tortured brainwashed child bled to death while crying?
Even Balalkia wasn't twisted enough to take enjoyment in that.
She was taking enough enjoyment to namedrop this fucking song
That's pretty fucking disturbing.
>He made us actually feel pity for the girl
Speak for yourself, Monsters who were forced to become Monsters still need to be put down.
She was taking enjoyment on getting revenge for her murdered comrades, she said she was tired afterward, and tried to justify it with her being old.
She does have a sick sense of humor, but even she knows it wasn't their fault.
Songs about the Grim Reaper are always so great.
No edgyness intended.
Don't fear the reaper oooooh
These guys? Disturbing? No way.
Basically take Con-Air and make it absolutely more batshit crazy
>still didn't save the bitch and she gave him a good lecture in fake morality
Balalaika should die before the series ends, I don't really hate her, but she crosses the line sometime, I bet it's Rock who causes her end, albeit not personally.
>black lagoon cards
i'd buy it
>implying Satan cares about trigger discipline
How are you supposed to shoot a gun if you're never allowed to keep your finger on the trigger?
The time Rock puts up a gun is the time I will quit Black Lagoon, I think.
Unless it is REALLY well made.
Here is hoping for a bit more action for Dutch and Benny.
One things is certain. Eda will endure anything.
Maybe the series will end with Balalaika taking over Roanapur from Chang and CIA changing their allegiance to Balalaika.
Americans and Russian working together. Ironic.
You're not supposed to shoot a gun.
Let the airforce and artillery kill them for you.
Look at his hair. It's fucking RED. Guess what is also red... My mom's period. If that isn't fucking disturbing then I don't know what's wrong with you.
Rock will die before Balalaika
I fucking hate how the series ends on like, a 6 episode saga and Dutch isn't in it, bullshit. Don't care about Benny.
And I don't mean Rock shoots Balalalaika, that's SO not Black Lagoon's style, but I think he'd fuck Balalaika over with his machinations.
Balalaika's machinations are in another level.
Rock still holds a shred of humanity, Balalaika doesn't give a shit anymore.
Here's a scenario, if Balalaika kills Revy or rock, how pissed does the other get?
Rock is turning into the scarier motherfucker in Roanapur.
I just want Rock to fuck her over for the Japan arc, she's way too fucking cocky in that, although the part where she says the Japanese Gun is pathetic and then offers it to Rock is funny.
That fucking picture at the end though, too much for me.
He is pretty much back to normal in the manga after Roberta's Blood Trail
>I laughed my ass off at Hansel's death
>Rock still holds a shred of humanity
His reaction to the maids returning to the boat alive took away any doubt I had that he went full balalkia.
You don't make hardened army vets, and killer insane maids scared shitless of you by being a pansy.
WEAPON I HAVE IT AAAAAAALLLLL
You don't think they deserved it? Even if they were abused, Balalaika had nothing to do with it.
She's too fucking cocky because she's too fucking good.
In any case, consider this.
Rock has just become a tactical genius.
Balalaika's been doing this shit for a long fucking time.
She deserves to be cocky given her accomplishments and life experience. She isn't even that cocky, she just doesn't enough of a shit to pretend to be humble.
>Don't care about Benny.
He is, despite the lack of screentime, one of my, if not my top favorite character.
I think it is because he is the only "normal" dude besides Rock in Roanapur.
I don´t know, but I got the impression (much more so in the manga) that Rock´s behaviour and actions were depicted kinda out of context. It only looked like he was becoming super evil. Also >>101155174 seems to confirm this a bit.
I think they were too fucked up to be saved, but that's nothing to laugh at.
Agreed, I think she's an excellent character, purely because they didn't go the usual route with these things and give her a heart or make her on the side of the heroes for no reason whatsoever.
However, I do think from Rock's POV or Revy's, she crossed a line by being ready to kill them both.
I'm aware Rock is actually above being that petty, but I wouldn't be.
If Rock gets killed, Revy will go full berserk trying to kill Balalaika.
If Revy gets killed, Rock will slowly destroy the Hotel Moscow.
I wouldn't enjoy it but don't begrudge Balalaika feeling that way.
Also, despite being fucked up, the one who got their hand blown off, had it coming.
Revy would try and rush in and fight all of them at once and either kill Balalkia or fail, but die either way.
Rock would slowly destroy everything hotel moscow has and orchestrate the worst end he could for balalkia.
If she kills one of them,she will kill another one,too.
She's not stupid.
Also,they are freelancers,so killing them won't backfire at her with some mafia war.
She can kill whole Lagoon company whenever she likes.
the thing is this is not a creepy song when compared to this one
i want an anime with the entire ost made by danny elfman
>she crossed a line by being ready to kill them both.
You mean in the Yakuza arc?
I don't think she did it out of malice.
Revy respects Balalaika and it's not like Black Lagoon fucks with Hotel Moscow or the other way around so there isn't hostility between them, but she didn't become as smart and astute as she is by holding back or "having feelings".
Rock and Revy are pretty cure, Rock is definitely Revy's baby.
The "Don't look at her Rock! Look at me!" in the Japan arc was kawaii as fuck.
In sub version,that line was translated as "Don't at her! You will be scarred!"
If Revy finally accept she likes Rock, she will turn into ultra-dependent grill
>Can Balalaika outsmart Rock?
Maybe. Depends on the situation, but she does have loads more experience.
Best thing Bala could do is just put him on a payroll
>She can kill whole Lagoon company whenever she likes.
That will probably never happen, though, as she owes Dutch way too much.
I don´t see Balalaika as being THAT ruthless.
That's one shitty sub.
Are we ever going to find out what Dutch did for Balalaika to owe her?
inb4 he's also CIA
You forgot "look", but it was the same line, I don't have a problem with that translation.
But I think that was actually what she said.
Yukio was about to commit a fucking throat seppuku.
what is the nightmare before christmas
He showed her the pleasures of being a young girl again.
You forgot that scene from OVA?
Dutch saved Balalaika from the sea.
She fell in it after she was shot by Chang in an meeting gone wrong.
I can't believe Rock got away with claiming he's had 1% the hard life she had, and got away with it.
That's what they actually say though.
don't recall that
I will burn the external HDD my BL episodes are on if that is true, don't break my heart, Dutch.
He pleases her
In a sexual way
>Basing your canon on OVAs
Does Chang have any more of a chance in taking her out now?
Aren't all the mafia heads in some sort of treaty?
Not by a chance.
She will be the end of him.
I want Rock to suddenly wear the T-Shirt Revy bought for him, she'd drop her spaghetti harder than anyone anywhere ever has.
It will be glorious.
a stop motion movie with a sound track by danny elfman
Haha. That would be awesome.
Yeah, the Hotel Moscow, the chinese triada and the Colombian Cartel I think.
You mean the things that aren't canon?
Thanks for the shitty input moron.
And the Italians are about to fuck something up
But she bought it for him so he'd wear it, she would just tease him a little if he did.
Whole twins thing was their doing.
It'd be great, because it'd show he kept it all that time.
I can just picture the time she bought it for him, thinking 'I-it's not like I think it'd look good on him or anything, I just hate that shirt!'
yeah. and they're going to try again
Almost everything covered in OVA is canon,you retard.
I wished they showed more of Brace-face, that Italian mob boss.
Tsundere Revy would be the cutest thing ever.
Balalaika is going to make Rock crack one day, he was pretty gutted about the Twins.
Then the Japanese girl.
I can't believe he tolerates what the Black Lagoon company does every now and then.
He still has it at the beginning of the Yakuza arc
>Balalaika is going to make Rock crack one day
Just Balalaika? That whole town is fucking him up
Oh god. It is atrocious.
Oh wow, never saw that somehow. Nice detail.
And holy hell Revys taste is awful
Of course it is. Don't you see what she wears every day?
Loli love booobs.
He seems to tolerate the Town, he looks out his window at one point and sees someone getting Chainsawed to death at one point and just sort of looks away like he saw a Dog shit on the pavement.
All the more reason for it to be a good moment when Rock does wear it.
You mean shota right?
JUST DO IT
totally not a slut
>you will never make sweet love or hardcore sex with Balalaika
Alpha is Spetsnaz you silly person.
Sweet love with Balalaika would be god tier
He would get beaten after 5 minutes of wearing that shirt in roanapur
and yet nobody posted this.
No touches Revy's baby.
i don't think roanapur has a dresscode
It says fuck you with a middle finger on the shirt.
Well,I just realized this song is about Rock.
Rock would be the little Spoon, primarily because Rock would blatently be the submissive o ne and secondly, because Revy's legs seem to go on forever, fuck.
Westaboos are always good at that sort of thing.
Now that I think back on it, the exit wound would've blown open her whole face.
It wasn't exactly high calibre,m8.
What episode was that exactly? I can somewhat into moon.
this. looked like a .38 to me. people have been shot 5 times in the face with a .38 and got up and ran away.
>you will never comfort Gretel and tell her that everything will be alright
>you will never save Hansel, and comfort him.
Could you imagine giving it to her from behind and just before you climax she switches to hansel's voice and says "Do it inside my boy pussy!"
>Could you imagine giving it to her from behind and just before you climax she switches to hansel's voice and says "Do it inside my boy pussy!"
Now I gotta fap to that.
In terms of sexableness
Shenhua > Eda > Revy > Bal > the rest > Jane
Jane a cute.
Revy will die while going on a first date with Rock.
Deal with it.
End of the clip.
She had him in sights
Why didn't she shoot?
>still didn't save the bitch
Rock could never have saved the bitch. It took him a while, but he understood that. No, he had to convince the bitch to save herself.
Around five to six minutes into this clip. Spoilers of course, but it's a little late for that warning in this thread. Eng dub which I prefer for this series, anyway.
Thank you, I am now deaf.
I'm asking again. Why didn't she shoot him?
The guy has insane speed and reflexes. She probably didn't think it was a good enough shot and didn't want to risk getting counterattacked at that range while she was off balance...maybe? I don't know, that's just how I'd rationalize it.
I'd also have to rationalize why he didn't cleave through Revy's handguns with the power of his thousands folded tamahagane katana.
She couldn't get a clear shot on him even at point blank range until he was either committed to a swing or immobilized, it seems. One of the difficulties of dealing with superhumans.
>cutting bullets with a sword
That shit almost made me drop the series.
He was in the ready position to cut her in half. Although a bullet would have killed him, it wouldn't have stopped him in time, so Revy dodged instead of having them both kill each other simultaneously.
Someone should post that image where it shows a person cutting a bullet in half and receiving two bullet wounds instead of one.
What, no Yukio?
>seppuku through the throat
What the fuck was she thinking.
Revy could have loaned her a gun.
>not wanting to just be in an endless 3 way with Hansel and Gretel, and add to it by having them constantly switch personalities as they use your body as a sex toy and show you all the things they picked up from years of doing pornography.
Neat. I mean it.
You made it through jumping the gun boat into the helicopter, Terminator Maid, and Shenhua's flying guillotine knife antics that's what broke your suspension of disbelief? Deflecting bullets with a sword like a goddamn Jedi is par for the course. I wouldn't have been surprised if he caught one with his teeth. I came into this series fully expecting that kind of wacky shit.
Probably easier than going for the guts.
Not to mention the 10 year old girl who can handle a BAR full auto like a pro.
A few years with Rock as her daddy and she would be just fine again.
While all of that shit you mentioned was crazy as fuck,nothing defiled normal logic like cutting a 1 km/s fast object with a blade.
>all the things they picked up from years of doing pornography.
Crippling torture, genital mutilation and snuff are on that list. I'll pass.
This one can
what about roberta's shark teeth?
We don't speak about OVA.......
It happened in the manga...
Given that he vomited just from seeing a bit of tight pussy, just imagine the stories she'd tell, the mentality she has, and the other parts of her body would do to him. She's probably one of those kids who mutilates the neighborhoods cat/dog and brings it home all bloody and a smile on her face saying "I got us dinner!".
He'd probably be disgusted to the point where it would affect her mentally; even if it is unintentional. It was probably better to put her down; for everyone.
Hmmmmm, some ground rules may need to be set before playing.
>She's probably one of those kids who mutilates the neighborhoods cat/dog and brings it home all bloody and a smile on her face saying "I got us dinner!".
That sound terribly cute. Would adopt/10
>not leaning into the stock
>keeping her firearm in the ready position while looking away from affected area
>no trigger discipline
I feel your pain OP ;_;
>no trigger discipline
Her finger doesn't reach the trigger.
Well I don't think she'd ever become a normal girl/boy but I don't think she has to be "put down". I'm sure Roanapur can handle another psychopath killer.
Who would want a normal child just so they can turn into the next generation of yoloswag cunts?
The twins saw the hard life already. Nothing else they needs to learn about the world
i wouldn't want my neigbours to disapear in mysterious circumstations
Cal from Phantom > all the lagoons
Not even if you lived in Roanapur? What does it matter as long as she doesn't harm you?
How can you say you love her if you won't even feed her your neighbours?
>not getting rid of the ones you don't like
meh i do not think that she would survive in roanapur due to pissing of Hotel Moscow.
An what if she "vaporises" someone from the triad,mafia etc.?
The only reason they got caught was because they left a witness.
I'll tell her not to.
You realize that Balalaika had put an bounty-hunter APB on her ass?
She was the walking dead. It was only a matter of time until they find her and kill her.
And that happened eventually.
Yes but lets put Hotel Moscow aside for a moment. People in this thread are arguing that it's somehow for the best to put her down. I just think that's a disgusting line of thinking.
Even a monster deserves a shot at life
Balalaika probably has a much higher score than the twins anyway
Do you honestly think she will be happy? After the death of her brother? After all the things she went though? Her idea of "happiness" is so distorted, that it really can't be called happiness at all; almost impossible to attain unless you are willing to let her mutilate whoever she wants (children, pets, parents, etc.).
I doubt she even has nightmares anymore from the rapings, beatings and killings she has been through. She probably just accepts that as how to live life normally. You can't change that; its like trying to argue politics or religions.
She'll accept her brother dying, seen enough death.
May not be completely happy, but she'll know it's a better deal than what she is used to
>She'll accept her brother dying, seen enough death.
You think after killing hundreds of enemy soldiers in war, that you wouldn't be affected if one of your friends or family members died?
Her most important and only person who shares her experiences, her burdens, the only one who could possibly console and relate to her, all the more being her blood sibling, has just died and you expect her to just accept it so easily?
Once he died, she became truly alone. His death was probably the last thing that could possibly have been taken from her. She truly was in a living hell after that point.
>Do you honestly think she will be happy?
I'm not happy right now. Happiness is something you experience sometimes for various reasons.
>almost impossible to attain unless you are willing to let her mutilate whoever she wants (children, pets, parents, etc.).
She seemed to enjoy the simple conversation with Rock loads, her fucked up way of thinking revealed when she figured she'd reward him with sex for it.
>I doubt she even has nightmares anymore from the rapings, beatings and killings she has been through. She probably just accepts that as how to live life normally.
Is she really so wrong? We are people who have lived a comfy pleasant life for the most part and that somehow puts us in a position to say that she ought to be robbed of her life for being fucked up due to circumstances and convinced it's for her own good at that.
I see no reason at all to kill her, except in self-defence. Especially not when you're surrounded by people that kill on a regular basis for the sake of money, or in a cruel way for revenge.
She seemed to handle it well enough, and trusted Rock enough
I assume they knew they would be killed at some point
Not him, but honestly both of them were so wacked out it probably wouldn't matter, she didn't seem that upset about it in the small time we saw her without him.
But she had at least a minor form of empathy left if she even had the capacity to want to thank Rock for what he did, even if it was messed up.
Would she ever be a happy smiling kid? So close to zero a chance it doesn't matter.
Would she be mildly less fucked up and probably able to live in a place like Roanapur? I give Rock a good chance of that.
>I assume they knew they would be killed at some point
It's been a long time since I saw the episodes but didn't they believe that as long as they kept killing people it meant that they weren't the ones that got killed. Basically living forever?
>but didn't they believe that as long as they kept killing people it meant that they weren't the ones that got killed
Yeah. That was probably from all the snuff movies they had to do.
Aren't all Fennoscandians aryan-caucasians according to animu?
Revy should get in touch with her heritage more often.
She wears this better than her normal outfit.
She doesn't really consider it any part of her identity.
She doesn't even speak chinese.
Revy is 100% American
Rock is the only non-American in the Lagoon crew.
then why isnt she fat
Little bit fancy for her tastes, I'd wager. Come to think of it, have we ever once seen her wear high heels? I can imagine her bitching endlessly about them. Hell, I bet she'd have a harder time getting in touch with her feminine side than her Chinese heritage.
I'd suggest spending more time with Shenhua. What that American say? Kill two bird one stone! Twinkie stop dressing like male prostitute, maybe little Japanese boyfriend not be so depress all time.
I'm surprised she even recognized cantonese
She's one of the 28% that isn't
But you did deliver a picture of Balalaika I didn't have, and for that I salute you anon.
>I'd suggest spending more time with Shinhwa
it all goes to her tits
She grown into New York Chinatown bro
There a great amount of self loathing in Revy
She grew up too poor to get fat. Daddy would rather smash her with a bottle than get her a happy meal.
>You don't think they deserved it?
Of course not. They were little kids who had been twisted into monsters. They didn't 'deserve' anything they'd been subjected to in their short lives. They needed to die because they were well beyond salvage, but that didn't mean they 'deserved' it.
No wonder she killed him
>Eastern American English
I'm pretty sure that's not a thing
why didn`t they rape the loli instead of killing her?
Blame the fact that the author is Japanese.
Because her junk looks like something that causes 5d10 sanity loss
i thought americans had their dialects for different areas
West coast american is more niggerish.
While East Coast american english is for New York gentlemen.
>5d10 sanity loss
We do, we just dont call any of them "eastern"
The twins were both boys.
Well, technically true.
But it's not usually called that.
Pacific NW Accent is true master race.
That would make more sense
But they are canonically Male/Female
It would have made more sense if one was mutilated to be a girl
Hiroe confirmed one s a girl the other a boy
"Eastern American" doesn't mean shit though.
New York and Georgia are both on the east coast, but they definitely aren't the same dialect.
Also, no English-speaker in the US says that they speak anything other than just plain "English" Nobody ever specifies because nobody cares.
>Pacific NW Accent is true master race.
Thats a damn fine cup of coffee
If it's confirmed then that throws that theory out of the window.
Since they change roles on who gets to be who I figured they just made one act a like a girl in porn since you can't tell children's gender apart that well.
Yeah its pretty convoluted, best not to worry about it, they're dead anyway
>nothing more than south Canada.
It's showing again,eh?
Boston accent, maybe? That stereotypical Italian New Yorker accent? Easy enough to fill in the blanks.
Actually, there's no real accent exchange.
At least in Seattle.
I refuse to believe Revy speaks with one of those retarded accents.
>>Pacific NW Accent is true master race.
Shen is only sexy with that makeup. When we see her fresh out the shower she looks like a dude.
You got a problem?
You mean unbiased, correct pronunciation?
Yeah because finding two people is so easy. The fucking entire U.S. was searching for Osama in a general area and look how long that took. Do you know how many places there are?
>and look how long that took
Yeah about that, there's no body.
>You mean unbiased, correct pronunciation?
There are a few differences.
No. That's the general "American" accent.
The kind of accent where you can't specifically tell where someone is from just by listening to them.
She wasn't stupid.
She used the Vietnamese navy to lure that to the island where her agent was located.
It took her less than a day to kill her.
No matter what they sound weird to me
>The kind of accent where you can't specifically tell where someone is from just by listening to them.
That's effectively the PNW accent.
With a little extra foresight she wouldn't be dead
with a little extra foresight she wouldnt have been in a child rape dungeon
No, it's this.
>best not to worry about it, they're dead anyway
I really wish they were recurring characters, or at least lasted longer before getting killed.
They sound identical except for like 3 words.
>A Better Tomorrow
>Not the best Woo film
Any difference is still a difference.
Besides, I'm from Virginia and have a general American accent. I definitely don't have a "PNW accent" since I've never been there.
British Accent > Caribbean Accent > Australian/NZ Accent > North American Accent
hahahaha no, what a little world you live in
Taiwanese is bes of course
Shenhua is a stunningly gorgeous woman.
She only looks good when she piles on the makeup.
like all women?
you racist asshole
>Right eye visible through hair
Why do people still do this? Especially in such a highly detailed picture.
>like all women
>like SOME women
Sometimes, even makeup isn't enough to quell the monster's hideousness.
So are Shenhua, Sawyer, and Lotton a happy little triad now?
Is he still a wizard?
They actually have a fourth member in the second novel.
And yes, he's still Mr. Wiz.
Who's the fourth?
Ninja guy from the first novel
Thats...pretty damn catchy, actually.
Being catchy is kind of their thing. Well, that and Danny Elfman being a creepy fucker.
He was just acting like a smug little shit who takes enjoyment in murdering people. To be stupid enough to attack a mafia boss in broad daylight with a hatchet, and being put into the same shit they were putting others into is fucking hysterical.
What makes you different from him? You laugh at it because of who he is. I never saw them kill any innocents. They killed bad people.
I never said it was from a moral stand point.
Though didn't they use a bunch of kids as decoys at one point?
There's not really any innocents around.
Bestest girl bump
How old is she supposed to be?
Cool shit, colorful and interesting characters.
How are those boat propellers not destroyed from a jump like that?
We're discussing Black Lagoon here, frankly, some levels of edge is to be expected.
I never spotted that.
Hell, it's actually pretty atrocious.
No official numbers, but I've heard her described as "late teens or early twenties".
Isn't she great?
Shot placement < everything else.
One .32ACP was enough to kill Franz Ferdninand, and another .32ACP was enough to kill Hitler.
I desperately need to see that.
I'll admit, the thought of that made me retch something fierce.
To be fair, the BAR is heavy as a bastard, gas-operated, and fires from an open bolt, so it always was pretty easy on the recoil for a .30-06 rifle, but she must have been fucking stronk to carry it at her age, I mean, it must weigh almost as much, maybe even more than her own body.
Gotta say, the way those dresses show off the hips and legs is really sexy.
Oh come on, a Texas accent or Tennessee drawl is just charming.
>with a little extra foresight Romania wouldn't have become a Communist regime under Ceausescu
Uh, yeah, sure.
You know, it almost gives the illusion of no-pan.
She killed herself.
The dumb bitch was so mad about being the child of a Yakuza boss and she ended up killing herself as a true Yakuza.
Posting more Boingo for no reason. Because Bal's favorite band. I guess.
>not posting the best song
What the fuck happened to this guy, he's all professional and not crazy anymore.
(video unrelated, still crazy in 1985)
Which Lagoon would you Black?
The best girl of them all
no-bra to B
B, Chinese D, E, F, G and H.
Since when did Greenback Jane have a rack like that?
Roberta is a whore
Don't you talk about your mother like that!
I HAVE A BIG GUN
I TOOK IT FROM THE LORD
Wouldn't you just love a small arc involving these three? A bit of their back stories, knowing more about them as persons, as well as seeing them doing some work and their relations with each other.
Then it ends with them dying
You know I would
fight me fgt
If its backstory, it could all be a flashback as they're dying
I hope you're all kidding. The anime went straight to shit after the first couple arcs. And OP has one the the most unnecessarily ridiculous and edgy arcs in the history of chinese cartoons.
>tfw Revy genuinely thought that shirt was cool and just wanted to do something nice for a boy she liked
She probably just wanted to fuck with the new kid.
Like "You really wear this shit just because I told you? HAHAHA"
>To be fair, the BAR is heavy as a bastard, gas-operated, and fires from an open bolt, so it always was pretty easy on the recoil for a .30-06 rifle, but she must have been fucking stronk to carry it at her age, I mean, it must weigh almost as much, maybe even more than her own body.
The heaviest model of the BAR(it looks like Gretel was carrying this) weighed in at about 24 lbs. I don't know how much children weight.
wow what a fucking cunt
Well now you made me feel bad.
Maybe that's the excuse she makes up in her head?
Really? That's the heaviest? I could have sword there existed some double-mount for turrets on planes or something.
I also can quite never decide if it's massive weight was detrimental to it's role as a "Light Machinegun", or if it helped keep recoil soft and smooth. But then, the FAL was just a couple of decades around the corner, and it was all but "Leger", I suppose standards were different during those times.
Read the second novel
I thought it wasn't translated?
"Light Machinegun" just means it is light enough for one dude to carry around and operate. The biggest negative the BAR had was its weight to capacity ratio. Twenty round magazines are nothing to brag about.
All except the last two.
Well, I get that part, and it was CERTAINLY a step up from the Chauchat from the same era, though the Lewis Gun certainly had capacity over the BAR.
The DP-28 always appealed to me, the 42 round pan magazines look so stack-friendly. Still like 20 pounds though.
Hey, suppose a FAL could be made to fit the role of a BAR if you gave it a H-barrel and made it fire from an open-bolt? It already has 20 round mags and a carry-handle, and .308 is pretty close to .30-06 in terms of ballistics?
I figure Hansel and Gretel combined might weigh around 100 lbs.
I'd have loved to see how they would have been during their teenage years, when they have that surge of hormones. If they're the way they are now, imagine them when they actually develop the urge to reproduce and are getting aroused at the drop of a hat.
I'm just picturing their creepy incest vibe taken to the next level.
>Hey, suppose a FAL could be made to fit the role of a BAR if you gave it a H-barrel and made it fire from an open-bolt?
That already exists save for the open bolt. Canada used such a variant fitted with a 30 round magazine.
I'm sure they'd want people to play with as well. They need their toys.
And maybe someone is nice to them, so they reward them the only way they know how.
>Hear a lot about Black Lagoon
>Huh, well, this sounds like a fun run and gun sort of romp through Southeast Asia, let's watch it!
>Intro Arc: This is neat
>Maid Arc: Hell yeah, mother fucker
>Twin Arc: w-wait w-what
>Japan Arc: I NEVER ASKED FOR THIS
What a fucking bait and switch this series was.
There's this show you might like called Jormungand...
Jormungand was actually good right up until the ending.
Seriously, fuck that ending. The only good thing about it was Kasper's speech. Top 30 or show speeches in anime, maybe Top 20. But everything else was shit. Complete and utter shit.
There was no reason for Jonah to return to Koko's side. There was no fucking reason. He just *did*. What kind of fucking character development is that? The fact that Koko was portrayed as the good guy for a completely fucking retarded stupid idea that would harm the entire world beyond even the immediate violence that Kasper, in-fucking-universe, pointed out would be entirely futile anyways, completely boggle my god damned mind.
I don't know how anyone can think that ending was good.
I was disappointed by Jorm's shitty dub
>Almost everything covered in OVA is canon,you retard.
Do you see where you fucked up? Until it appears in the manga or the author confirms one way or the other in an interview, it is fan fiction shit.
What if it's canon for the anime?
What if the anime and the manga share different continuities?
Season 2 was fucking beast.
They are separate entities and should be treated as such. Hell, the arcs don't even happen in the same order.
If there's ever a new season, it will follow the events and changes of the OVA.
I finished the anime and I want more.
I've heard that manga is better. How true is this?
Nothing is true
I personally did not think any was better than the other.
Both have stuff that is missing from the other, but the general stuff remains the same.
Manga is better.
Everything is permitted?
Its only supposedly better because people start a shitstorm when they say it isnt
Why has a gif of this not been made yet?
Little shits deserved it.
And you were seriously stupid if you didn't expect it to happen.
No surprise; we ain't even married. Pretty sure she wouldn't want me anyway.
The only thing that makes it better is that there is more of it
Hopefully the show gets more episodes since its going to Toonami
Rad Revy's not that kinda magical girl, bruh.
How can someone like Revy?
She's literally 2edgy4me. It's like watching a teenager with a pair of expensive guns.
>he thinks the 92f is expensive
>all my pics are on my other computer
>not understanding that its the edgyness is what draws us
You wouldn't want to date a psycho qt?
shes agood character
>life on the streets
>became a merciless killer
YEAH,SURE. THAT KIND OF CHARACTER HASN'T BEEN DONE BEFORE.
Especially in anime..
There's so much to her besides that it's not even funny
>.32ACP was enough to kill Hitler
Pretty sure it was a 9mm Parabellum that killed Hitler (assuming it wasn't the cyanide).
> it must weigh almost as much, maybe even more than her own body
Pretty sure she weighs more than 20-some-odd lbs.
>massive weight [...] detrimental to it's role as a "Light Machinegun"
Most actual LMGs weighed around 30 lbs.
>the Lewis Gun certainly had capacity over the BAR
Too bad the Murricans got screwed out of it because of political one-upmanship. Crozier can sod himself.
>Pretty sure it was a 9mm Parabellum that killed Hitler (assuming it wasn't the cyanide).
Hitler shot himself with a .32 Walther ppk. (and cyanide)
Why would they chamber any of their domestically designed firearms for ACP or anything measured by calibers instead of metric?
>instead of millimeters*
>still no translation for the new chapter
When will this manga end?
You're asking all the right questions.
Those crazy krauts know it as 7.65×17mm Browning, but it's literally the same cartridge.
I was under the impression that ACP and Murrican munitions in general weren't worth the time of day in Europe.
Why is Hiroe so great
I was too busy getting pissed off by how shitty those episodes were. If they had a bounty on their heads, Revvy should have just shot them in the face before the end of the first episode. Spending time having a conversation is just the worst way to go.
Why are muscly bunny girls so unappealing?
Koko is so cute. Even if she is an evil albino lizard woman.
I'm still waiting for a doujin featuring futa Kaguya areping Mokou.
>Original run May 2002 – ongoing
Holy fuck I didn't realize it was this old
I need more Revy. She's cute when she's nervous.
>Why are muscly bunny girls so appealing?
Fixed that for you
Holy shit really? I always just assumed it was from 2005-7ish. I always wondered why things seemed so dated sometimes and I just assumed it was because of where they were.
Like Balalaika using the VHS for the porn tape.
>a masculine feature
>no trigger discipline
I'm not surprised that Valmet's looking worried.
At least the safety's on.
it takes place in the 90s
The Novels available in english at all?
Will they fuck already?
I'm on episode 21 and this sexual tension is unbearable.
wait till manga end
It's like they're having an emotional relationship with no physical contact whatsoever right now.
It seems dated because it takes place in the mid 90s.
Though, in 2002, it would have only felt slightly off rather than dated.
This thread's still here?
I'll cut you cunt. Don't talk shit about mai waifu
Pretty amazing eh?
They probably have fucked. I don't get the vibe that Rock was into Revy though. It seems like Revy likes Rock in her own psychotic way, but Rock doesn't seem interested in her like that.
I think Rock cares, but getting involved is dangerous.
Revy really would kill him if he fucked up bad enough
Best girl reporting
>It seems like Revy likes Rock in her own psychotic way,
The sad thing is, I think Revy likes Rock in a perfectly normal healthy way.
She wanted to win him a prize at the fair, and look like a bigshot with her skills. Hell, it was her idea to go to the fair. She bought him a shirt that, let's face it she though looked cool. She's acting like an adolescent with her first big crush.
Rock's slow descent into corruption and madness is what's going to deny her the one healthy, good thing she could have had in her life. Rock could have saved her /a/, but like everyone else he tried to save, he'll fail.
Revy likes Rock in the way Japo girl liked Gumpo
>heartbroken because rock turns into a prick
This is how the series will ens
It's going to end with Eda wearing an america flag bikini while riding a tank and eating a hot dog as the US military invades Roanapur
I will now only accept this as the ending now
and I'm not even an Edafag
I'm a bit upset that there isn't more doujinshi or even fanfic material based around the twins.
I want her to get her own series.
Talk shit get bit
I want the 3 to get their own series
wait which three
Probably the only part of the show I hate
>not knowing who I mean by the 3
Sawyer,Shenhua and Lotton
i loved it
I can do without Lotton
>not wanting Lotton
But he's hilarious
>People in this thread are arguing that it's somehow for the best to put her down. I just think that's a disgusting line of thinking.
You're out of your mind, there's nothing disgusting about dealing with what Hansel and Gretel were, not like it's Balalaika's fault, or that guy who had nails hammered into his head's fault.
I'd argue that letting them live would bite you in the ass one day too, it doesn't matter when, but they'd eventually get you, even if they knew you spared them.
get out then
Translation script is out
I don't think he could carry an entire show. Some are better as sidekicks and comic relief
now we wait another week
Why don't you do something now>?
I do, I play dota
>"Hey, it’s Revy! Long time no see.
Come join in the show sometime."
"Yeah, one of these days."
sc2 is such a better game
I am a retard with photoshop
>Hey, it’s Revy! Long time no see.
>Come join in the show sometime.
Welp, that just about settles that argument, although the question of if this applies to the anime too will persist I feel.
>one of these days
>this applies to the anime
Who gives a fuck?
The manga is the only version of the story that continues, and is therefore the only relevant one.
>not this shit again
I don't get it
there is more anime coming
Some day, I want to run away...
"[sidebar]: In order to work on the new volume, we’ll be taking a short break."
FUCK YOU HIROE.
ITS ALREADY BIMONTHLY YOU LAZY FUCK.
You know he's totally using that time to work on doujins
someone with pshop give us a proper reaction image
I'm not arguing that one is better than the other.
But the anime is not relevant at all in relation to the discussion of new chapters.
The anime is fine, just don't apply one to the other.
all dat porn he draws
revy was a whore
She was a stripper.
We already knew this. She was a dancer in an S&M show and a personal dom.
>Get your asses back in your seats and go watch some grandpa fuck a horse!
Stay classy Revy
which makes her a whore
Western fans seem to collectively shit pants when anime panders to western tastes like Cowboy bebop and Black Lagoon. Then they proceed to complain that more anime/manga isn't like that.
Why not just watch live action American TV shows/movies that do the exact same shit? Why does it have to be from anime?
Are people seriously getting butthurt over this? I thought we all knew Revy was a stripper and a dom.
Even if she wasn't, who would ever peg her as a pure maiden?
I thought you meant literal whore.
I don't think Black Lagoon panders to westerners
Dude what the FUCK is your problem?
She's seriously perfect.
There were some debates over whether Revy previously worked as a dom in a strip joint. Not only does this confirm it, but Revy doesn't even seem to feel negatively about it. The anime removed the last reference to Revy being a stripper and added a flashback showing Revy was raped as a teenager, so there's room to debate if that was an artifact of the adaptation or a deliberate change.
If you want to go that route, the thread OP is about the anime so you can take your manga bullshit elsewhere.
Not sure where you're getting this.
a girl in cutoffs with guns, like hell it doesn't
Black Lagoon is mostly about westerners.
Hiroe is a huge westaboo
The one time they went to Japan, Hiroe spent the entire arc shitting all over Japanese traditions.
Any show with guns will appeal to the west.
There's more to Black Lagoon than Revy, anon.
There are japs who like guns.
It's pandering to those guys more than westernes
>so you can take your manga bullshit elsewhere.
Too bad we're talking about the new chapter, sperglord.
>Not sure where you're getting this.
I read the novel.
I know reading must be a difficult concept for you to grasp.
But Hiroe didn't write it.
Stop assuming that something is canon
Yeah I know.
I'm saying it panders to westaboos more than actual westerners. The two groups do share similar interests. The series wasn't originally intended to be licensed overseas anyway
Anti-devil's advocate: Westerners love Japanese traditions more than real Japanese do
>STOP TALKING ABOUT THINGS I DON'T LIKE
Who the sperglord here?
Don't reference manga-only stuff when discussing the anime.
Don't reference anime-only stuff when discussing the manga.
Who the fuck cares? Black Lagoon is Black Lagoon.
So happy this bitch got killed, one of the worst things to be introduced in this series.
People will never understand this, anon..
>But Hiroe didn't write it.
He sure as hell drew it.
He personally selected the writer.
He had far more input than he did on the anime.
This. Fucking thank you
There are goddamn differences in the material, THATS WHY THEY SHOULD BE DISCUSSED SEPARATE.
like a girl with a chainsaw?
Yes there are differences, but we shouldn't be bitching about it
She's a girl with a chainsaw who tried to kill herself and thus is a mute except for the voice box
Feng a shit.
Feng a bad influence and a homewrecking whore.
she has a great ass though
Hiroe has said he thoroughly discussed how the anime would go with it's director in pre-production. Hiroe told Urobutcher to "write something that challenges Black Lagoon" and let him loose. Urobichi outright says he "went too far" with Chang.
We are discussing their differences you autistic fuck
>Hiroe told Urobutcher to "write something that challenges Black Lagoon" and let him loose
Considering Hiroe did the goddamn art for the books, you can be pretty sure he didn't object to the material.
>All those neckbeards
>all those asocial autistic nerd
She's basically swearing aganist /v/
please stop this nonsense
He didn't object to the anime either anon.
>Implying she isn't
>implying she wasn't fully aware that Revy staked a claim when she kissed Rock
>Jane is massive slut
>wants to do Rock
You're just upset Feng stole a first kiss
>wants to do Rock
And got her shit slapped.
>thinking she won't try again
Feng reminds me of Mari,dunno why....
>she has a great ass though
>no mention of Black Lagoon anywhere so people can find it on the catalog
>starting with a needlessly inflammatory post
that's what you get for insulting Feng
Ya fucking blew it
then are you going to make a new thread or what?
i can't delete that one
This thread wasn't going anywhere productive anyway, there's no need for a new one. Everyone already knows that Feng like to make trouble for shits and giggles, Revy was an S&M dancer, and that mangafags are horrifyingly insecure.
This is where you are wrong, when Browning started putting out his semi-automatic pistols on the market, people were enamored with them, not just Americans, but Europeans too, they loved the ingenious simplicity and robust construction of his designs.
Now, it's true that the Germans would later call the .45 Automatic Colt Pistol a 11.43mm Amerikansche Clown Patrone, but that could be interpreted as arrogance from them related to their hostility.
