This is great, slick and beautifully violent as the name suggests as this is now an OAV (Original Animated Video), taking it away from the restrictions of the original two series.

Let the killing begin, as she lives up to her name by spilling the blood of those that will lead her to her patrons killer.blacklagoonRoberta

Innocent she may look in her maids outfit, but as you’ll soon find out,”looks can kill”.

Her trail leads her to the Island of Roanapur, a den of iniquity with thieves and pirates, this is where Black Lagoon company come in as the new heir to the Lovelace clan Garcia and Roberta’s maid in training Fabiola hires Black Lagoon to help save Roberta from herself more than any of the multitude enemies that are after her hide, (FARK, Italian Mafia, US Military and the Cubans).

Killing is her game and finding someone to question after she has done her shooting is very difficult.

Suddenly the streets are deserted apart from from people armed to the teeth and others hiding behind curtains ready to clean up anybody left alive.

The Americans make their move and so does Roberta.

With claret flying in all directions as well as body parts this is a great watch for anyone over 18. Directed by Katabuchi, Sunao who has directed both previous incarnations, (Black Lagoon, Black Lagoon: The Second Barrage).

These are the first 6 episodes and I can’t wait for episode 28 and the rest of this story.blacklagoonbanner2
