I didn't expect Roberta to get out of it without a scratch, but losing an arm, a leg, two fingers and an eye? Should have just killed her off while they were at it.

It was nice (well, not that nice) to finally see a bit of Revy's past, and as expected, it wasn't a happy one. It kinda reminded me of the OVA anime 'Kite', one of the most controversial anime of its time.

With the OVA now officially done, i can say i like the series much better

It was nice and all, but i didn't get that same awesome feeling, maybe it's because the wait between the episodes, but i don't think so

i understand Roberta had killed many but it does not feel right about her ending... tho she may have found peace and no longer take up weapons again

as for Rock's motive, i do not fully get it

overall the OVA is still good, especially the bloody actions, will be better if they were a bit kinder towards Roberta

Wow, this sucks. So in other to create a bigger impact and gives it a more 'complete' conclusion to the arc, they fked up the invincible Roberta (deviating from the source). Not sure I want to watch more BL after this and manga is on hiatus too.

Roberta was unharmed in the manga...so why did they have to butcher her? Curse you Madhouse!!!

Oh boy this reminds me of Claymore's anime ending...when Madhouse decided to create their own crappy ending that destroyed the hopes of the fans from having a Claymore season 2. I'll never trust Madhouse again when it comes to adapting a manga.

Funimation got the rights to the dub yes? I hear that might mean no Brad Swaile?

Also, I've been mentioning this here and there, but I think it would be great for Funi to just briefly edit that credits scene in some sort of alternate ending, even if just on the eventual DVD release. You know, for those of us who've read the manga and were disappointed by that scene. And really, it's only a few short seconds of footage, and Roberta is either sitting or standing still the whole time. How much effort could it possibly take to edit in an arm for Roberta, and replace that prosthetic foot with a simple shoe? Maybe even ditch the eyepatch and reveal she still has her eye underneath. Can't really give her back her fingers (I don't think) cause that happened earlier in the episode, and was pretty visible. But still, I don't think it would be any trouble for them. Not with how often and egregiously Naruto Shippuden is edited to make it fit on a Disney channel.

Well, I'm sure it's just a silly wish and that it probably won't happen, but it would sure be great. It definitely wouldn't fix all the ova's problems, but giving us an alternate credits scene that didn't butcher Roberta would at least make it rewatchable for me. As it is now, I don't think I could watch it again with that ugly ending looming in my mind. Guess I share Mizuno's sentiment.

I'm rather intrigued by a Black Lagoon OVA personally, as I'm sure it'll rock just as much as what the original first two seasons of the series already does (I own the complete collection DVD boxset)

You make it sound like it hasn't been aired yet. But you know of course it's finished by now, right?

For now, yeah.

There's a new arc going on in the BL manga.
