Black Lagoon

The first volume arrived today for me, and here i am shocked that there already isn't a thread about this awesome manga thats the main source for the over the top anime.

Start of with, the art's just love all over.. right down to the gun fights, explosions - sometimes these kind of scenes don't work well in manga, but Rei Hiroe has done wonders with this work.

Just about upto the chapter with Roberta appearence, and i have to say it helps having seen the scene in the anime to actually understand how amazingly over the top it can be.

And at the end.. school girl Revy~ <333

Time to order voume 02.

Volumes 1 and 2 are great. Vol 3 is a bit tamer with the long-winded conversations during some parts. I'm still reading 4 at the moment.

ps. the omake's are absolutely hilarious.

Yeah, it would have been good to see the Omake's animated - maybe something for DVD?

I'm gonna order Volume 02 & 03 next week, but i just gotta say i love this series~

Are you reading the original Japanese publications?

Angelsama, do you have any idea as to when Volume 5 (HK adaptation) will be released? I'm pretty sure it's already out in Japan right now.

Just for the sake of teasing you further, I'll mention that I've read volume 5 and it's awesome (probably the best to date).

Who has the latest on how the manga is proceeding? All I know is that Roberta comes back to the picture, but I've not even read past the ending of the Greenback Jane arc. It's awfully frustrating.

So why do people fight, anyway?
Perhaps the meaning of existence lies within their will to fight.
People feel a sense of accomplishment through battle.
And it’s also a fact that the ones actually fighting are never perceived as being tainted.
