Well the last twin seemd like it could be changed, thou with LOTS of work, but I think it whould be possible. As you said, it was society they lived in that made them as they are, however if somehow you whould be able to cut the past and bring them into normal society, they could eventualy become more normal and live a happier life, even thou they could never abandon their memorys of the past.

Also as far as I understood they never killed a innocent civilian, so it should not be too hard to redeem...

This is why I love japanese storys, even the villans of the story are not true villians.

The one in the OST is the ED version. It's rather short too (< 2min).

Man fuck with Hotel Moscow i did feel bad for the twins and Rock totally freaked out when he saw that the sister was really the brother. It was really tragic that the two kids had the up bringing that they did but it does show us the world is not always a bunch of sweet smelling roses. What im wondering is after everything Rock has been through will we start to see a change in him?

z00mg! Fanservice!

Spoiler for in the name of fanservice that actually doesn't involve any snuff porn:


And the sequence of events



that lead to Revy's making that face



Stray bullet shattering ones drinking glass would get anyone riled up! I was rolling through the entire episode! Even the sad affairs of getting killed by a chainsaw was funny. Btw, did anyone pick up the voice actor of this character in the following screen?



Could it be Tomokazu Sugita? I think he calls himself Rotton za vizard in Engrish which is in English, ______ the Wizard.

Remember, the twins episodes were shuffled too.
In the manga, it happened right after the cigar kiss.
Which caused Mr. Chan to draw his weapon at diffrent times, and
the whole leading into the twins kiss after Revy and Rock's cigar kiss was gone.

As for Revy and Eda's conversation...

Just rewatched episode 15 - and gawd, what a depressing roller-coster. Of course they killed, but its hard not to see the whole thing from Rock's point of few - bringing him into this series right from the start is what i believe to me the best part of the show.

Ah well, time for a lil' bit of sleep, then episode 16~

They are identical twin, which means they are both girls or both boys. In episode 14 Gretel states that she has never put her brothers in, which would prove that at least one is a boy, making them both boys. In the extreme one is a girl the other a hermaphrodites. But as most fans choice the reality that fits their fantasies, nothing will be excepted as proof unless they get to see the twins naked.

Identical twins can be of different sex, thou probabilty is low, but its there, science lesson "On extremely rare occasions, an original XXY zygote may form monozygotic boy/girl twins by dropping the Y chromosome for one twin and the extra X chromosome for the other.", wikipedia FTW.

And according to subs it says that she never put Ivan in, which means russian.

True, but it is does not have to be the case, because if one had XXY it would show, they would not be the same, they would not talk the same or move the same. XXY's are usually gender confused, but this is not the case with the twins, they are both boy and girl in their head, not a girl wanting to be a boy or a boy wanting to be a girl, they assume genders like how people with multiple personality disorder assume identities. One would also be more developed than the other, because the one with XXY would suffer from XXY syndrome. A number of symptoms are delayed motor function, speech, lower IQ, these would have greatly manifested themselves given the twins traumatic life.

So as things stand, I'd say they are either boys or girls, not one and the other.
But it would also be unfair of me to assume that the author knows about these things, so unless someone goes and asks him, we will never know for sure, it is left up to the individual to decide.
It really doesn't matter anyway, they're both dead.

Agreed, that the ambiguity regarding the twin's gender was never cleared. Admittedly, I would feel better if my current impression is never proved wrong, that, one of the twins was a girl. Poor rock! He is probably the only person closest to the truth.

Btw, if it is not too much to ask, is it possible to post a scan for the manly Bararaika and the Lady Rock?

I read the manga vol1-5 but I don't remember seeing anything like what's in eps 16. Is that filler or is it a new chapter arc that hasnt been put in manga yet?

Damn that chick is cute. For some reason, I've seen her in another anime/manga somewhere........

The current Greenback Jane episodes will be in volume 6 of the manga, which is slated to come out next month.
