I don't think Roberta made a direct attack on the boy and Rebe. Considering how devastating accurate she is, it's unlikely she would miss at that range with her suitcase SMG. Especially after the monologue and prior warning to the attack. I imagine the following scenario playing out in the militant meganekko's mid

Rebe+young master as hostage=Rebe+valuable shield

Now if value of shield = zero. Rebe must abandon shield for a better one.

Roberta played a bluff that worked. Besides, if she wanted both to die she'd have used the shotgun instead.

lol 10 was as fun as 9! Revi vs Maid in a gunfight, then hand to hand. Roberta is the most out of control maid I have EVER seen.

Too bad the animators didn't include the omake shorts. A few of them are really funny, such as every character getting a gender switch to Black Lagoon getting the high school treatment. Balalaika as a scarred bishounen? Roberta as a butler? Rock as an OL?!

I'd like an alternate universe spin-off ... still within the realm of dark comedy, however, harem-ish. LOL.

OMFG BLACK LAGOON OP RED FRACTION OUT!!!!!!!

LOOK AT LYRICS, LOL!!!! ROFLOLMAO!!! NO TIME FOR SISSY PIG?!?!?!

Official Lyrics from cover: http://img159.imageshack.us/img159/5...a0032022uz.jpg

I have a big gun
I took it from my Lord
sick with Justice
I just want to feel you

I’m your angel
Only a ring away
You make me violate you
no matter who you are

It’s all up to you
No one lives forever

Been burn in the hell
By all the pigs out there

It’s always been hell
From when I was born

They make me violate them
No matter who they are

Get down on your knees
Get a good head on your shoulders
If it’s for you guys

Go to the end of the earth
Do what you think
Give it with dedication
I’ll put out your misery
Have no prayer
So. I keep the gun with me.

For my safety
I’ll do it with no sweat

They mean business
No time for sissy pig

Queen of ocean
Sing “the Volga” to you

No need to think about it
You do it or you die

Those aren’t tears
Don’t let it trick on you

I am hard as steel
Get out of my way

Pay back all at once
Suck away the tender part

You made a mess
For Christ sake, this rotten world
Shit out of luck
Go with my vision
Light up the fire
Right on the power
Weapon… I have it all

Get down on your knees
Get a good head on your shoulders
If it’s for you guys
Go to the end of the earth

Do what you think
Give it with dedication
I’ll put out your misery

You made a mess
For Christ sake, this rotten world
Shit out of luck

Go with my vision
Light up the fire
Right on the power
Weapon… I have it all

I already said this over at my blog but I might as well add it here too.

If you read the lyrics there is a external reference.

“Queen of ocean
Sing “the Volga” to you”

That is a reference to “The Volga Boatmen’s Song” It’s a Russian song about people in the depths of misery that was inspired by a painting called “Burlaks on the Volga” You can find the lyrics and learn more about it at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Volga_Boatmen's_Song

I was rather suprised to see that in the lyrics, but the meaning of the song fits the series quite nicely.

SeVIIn, you would be surprised at the amount of well-known Russian songs called "Volga" - after all, it is a major river, lifeblood arthery of historical Russia - I for myself know at least four... it can reference any one of them.

Of course it fits the series quite nicely, with the Red Fraction name and all.

Yeah there are several songs named "Volga" that one seemed to make the most sense though. But who knows it could be another one. However, it's still surprising to see a Russian reference in a Japanese Engrish song. xD

Hopefully they'll turn up as DVD extras...

I've seen the high school one, but not the gender switch one. Ahh, that'd be nice to see... though somehow, it's hard imaging Rock being too different as an OL. But, Revy as a butler!?

Not Revy. Roberta! Even her waka-sama got the switch. Their personalities are still more or less the same though. Check it out for yourself...

Spoiler for gender switched Roberta and Loveless Jr.:

OHMIGEWDNESS!

Garcia Loveless looks A LOT like Hina Ichigo, and Roberta's HOT both ways. OMG. He looks like Ootori Kyouya of Ouran! Roberta LOOKS so much better donning a butler's clothes - and the hair is simply t3h h0tn355 ...
