A raw scan was available online. I have the feeling Black Lagoon's manga, if not already, then soon will be released in the US; its an impressive work that should appeal to domestic tastes.

What a tease! Your choice of pages are good. You reveal just enough but not too much.

I've read this arc as much as I could already, and it's my most favorite one so far. I also hope the anime will portray this arc faithfully if not better than the manga.

@Cal-

Those are Chinese raws, are they not? There are original Japanese raws on IRC, with much higher quality, if anyone is interest, feel free to drop me a PM. (I feel like we're hijacking this anime thread in a way, but for good reasons I suppose. XD)

The manga is still unlicensed at the moment. But if it ever does come to North America, I wonder what the publication will do with the profanity.

*Where* do you guys get the manga online?

And why isn´t anyone translating this manga besides Akatsuki, they might be good but they are seriously slow, it´s a freaking crime that this manga doesn´t get the credits it deserves.

It'll be out in North America soon enough... as for no one translating... I won't pretend to know how internet economics works and why people scanlate some and no others. Pity though, It'd be nice if someone earnestly went after this series.

Kujoe: Thanks, you're too kind, perhaps I'll put up more teasers shortly to further whet appetites and keep this thread near the top and close to people's attentions.

Edit: DOTL: I don't know, I don't buy manga in English cause as mentioned before its too costly and much of the time the Japanese language translates more smoothly into Chinese; buying original Japanese proved be the cheapest option once I had the opportunity to spend a Summer there, helps polish the language up too. Might they plastic wrap the things like they do with Suzuka, which has full frontal nudity and such? Or are the 3P areas clouded over with fog? I've heard it done in some cases.

Second Barrage is not the second season, apparently. The first episode of Black Lagoon - The Second Barrage is numbered 13, so I am guessing they still consider it one anime. The opening and ending songs are exactly the same, expect for the small addition of the words "The Second Barrage" in the OP video.

The episode is quite gruesome. It's probably the most atmospheric and scary episode of the series. No big action scenes (except one semi-scene), very moody and frightening. The twins are nuts. Seriously, I want to know what the hell is wrong with them.

Quality-wise, i am a bit confused. The first episode, as I've said, didn't have any of the fast-paced action sequensed, so it was hard to judge if the quality has dropped off from the first coul. Several times I did get a feeling that the character designs were a bit off-model. It was very subtle, as if all characters were 99% right on target, but with some little weird detail nagging my subconscious.

Episode #14 (called Bloodsports Fairytale) should be a better indicators, since it features a lot more action and gunfights.

I think it's just the quality of the torrent decoder or the recorder
seems like it's being recorded hastily from the tv

I noticed it too - relatively minor, but especially when Revy and Rock were in the bar there were several times when they seemed off model to me. In addition Revy's expression didn't seem accurate. Other than that, it mostly seemed alright to me. It's definitely a setup episode, but most of the best arcs in the first season started with similar slow setup episodes. The twins are damn creepy - was that a FN-FAL she was carrying?

Yes, my favourite twins are finally in colour and animated. And don't worry, Prophet-dono, if they're faithful to the manga, we'll know the history behind these twins in an episode or 2.

This #13th episode, I agree, has the most substantially eerie athmosphere with some methodical slasher flick+ serial killer visual approach, which is always a good thing. It's more of a foreshadowing episode than anything else though, starting off by showing us what these new pair of sickos are capable of. Yes, I love that song. And those laughter giggles. Awesome work from Omi and Tomoko.

I found Hansel in a way, more beautiful than Gretel. Maybe's it the axe and the evil smirk.
