Anyone entertain the possibility that Koko is bisexual? Like some really screwed up version of Lady Gaga? Goodness knows she can be almost as much of a drama queen

True that ^

Valmet to me is very hot, she only getting away with this in the anime, though!

I hope Koko is bi-sexual. Its great that the anime didn't devote the majority of its time on Jonah.

OST is out like the 29th, I think. Then we'll have the Koko is Loco song.

So, finally managed to watch Ep 11. Sometimes I wonder what's the point when I'm invariably a few days behind everyone. That said:

I'm amused to hear Hyakume being the tired, too old for this shit Boss Dominic, though it's even more amusing if you recall that Kenji Fujiwara also voiced Ali Al-Saachez, who's like the complete opposite of Boss Dominic. His "Oh fuck" reaction to seeing who's on Koko's crew was also amusing. And I can't help but find his Only Sane Man feelings to be amusing, in contrast to Liliane and Grego, who're enjoying the death and destruction a bit too much.

...yknow, Daxinghai aside, for the most part it seems that Koko's crew is going up against psychos and shit. Would be really interesting to see how they fared against combat pragmatist professionals.

I don't quite like Valmet's hairstyle, but I can understand her reasoning; she's going back to settle unfinished business, she's going to lay the baggage of Major Sophia Velmer to rest, and so she cuts her hair to a length close to her old army hairstyle, and because long hair is a liability in CQC. It's also interesting to see that she's a military brat, from a long and distinguished line; grandfather was a Lt. General in the Winter War, father just got promoted to Chief of Staff, brother's a Lt. Colonel and CO of an elite regiment... and then this happened; even if the Board of Inquiry cleared her of any responsibility, her eye would probably have caused her to be medically retired. Though it looks like Valmet resigned her commission before that happened.

... also, despite having practically zero in the way of upper torso forward weight distribution, loli Koko is just as appealing as her older self. Even if she seems a bit colder.

... I wonder if Kaspar's the supplier for Balalaika's forces?

Ep.11 to me is twice more interesting than any other episodes previously.

Hope there's a second and third season for this, to see the past for each of the members... not just Valmet and koko.

Speaking of Black Lagoon, i finally read the translated version of that six-paged manga crossover between Koko and Revy. Boy was it hilarious!

^ Yeah I read that the other day and I wondered about something...

Revy: ROOOCK! I HATE YOUU!

Rock: 0.0 What is it now? I wasn't even here all today!

Revy: EXACTLY! You have talked me out of buying all this useless shit today from that damn girl!

Rock: ...come again?

Their will be no 3rd season but their will be a second season which will cover volumes 7 to the last volume 11.

You will see a bit of the teams past bits and pieces but not Johah's. All in all I'm glad it at least ended instead of being in hiatus hell like Black Lagoon.

It speaks volume about Koko's negotiating skill at selling things. .... any thing. Koko gets her way one way or the other.

Video comments by Tamura Mutsumi (Jonah, left) and Itou Shizuka (Koko):
Spoiler for video:
Love Tamura-san's deep voice. They are promoting the day that the first volume of the BD/DVDs goes on sale (this Wednesday). Asked what the highlights of the show are, Tamura-san talks about the speed of things, and the way comedy slips naturally into the seriousness. She mentions Valmet's fighting, and her body (waving her hands to show it, and talking about the bikini). I think (not sure) Shizuka mentions Koko keeping her head.

Jormungand: The noob.

The mangaka's showing this off at his blog. Not sure if it's a novel or something... But it's mentioned to have stories...

He said the publisher gave some to him. The blog post mentions they're complimentary copies. It's out though and Amazon Japan's selling them.

And I found a place where you can buy the patch. I'm tempted to shell out some money.

A little more detail about Ugo this time.
The surprise attack was a failure.
Looks like that trio just didn't have what it takes to take out Koko's gang.
Valmet's little fun & games in the desert compound were totally an adrenaline high.
Looks like she finally managed to deal with her past face to face.
All is well that ends well and it this case it ended well ^^

Is it sad that I was excited to see Dulles airport, just because I was able to recognize it?

Good end to the season. 8/10

I must say though, Koko kind of annoys me in the anime. Maybe it's her voice or stupid smile.

Well Jormungand's not the only one where a young boy's voiced by a woman.

So this one is the last of this season? I was hoping to get 13 episodes...

Hmm so R goes to talk with that CIA guy, hope he doesn't betray Koko!
And for a moment I thought that Valmer was going to die, mainly because of the music
