Rock and Revy as a couple? I don't think I would like that. It wouldn't be like Revy at all, remember what she says during the UBoat mission?

Well the story is about Roberta's revenge against people who killed her master. It seems that even CIA was involved in the assassination too.

yeah but later they had the cigerrate "kiss" scene. She gets jealous. And, she calls Rock family. So basically everyone knows there "together", Revy's stubborn to ever admit it. But, she won't any other girl get close.

there at least is material for a one night stand.
or a climax ending
Or better getting together experience some happy moments, some tough conversations and finally break up again but still be friends. In this world of shady business there is no place for love

true, but in that case, i would really hate for her to become the typical tsundere that we see all too often.

In her conversations with Eda from the Church of Violence it's pretty obvious that Revy at least want's to "do" Rock, and some other events in the series would seem to indicate that she has some sort of feelings for him (the rescue from the terrorist camp, and later trying to prevent him seeing that girl kill herself). The only issue is that I don't really see Rock having any feelings beyond friendship for her at this point.

If it ever does get consumated, it will probably be a very untypical (and disfunctional) romance, but I certainly see the possibility.

I think Balalaika gotten more juicy stuff from Rock in the last arc than Revy did in the whole 2 season

I like to see her more than the rest of the cast, well her and the taiwanese chick atleast

Benny and Jane is having a great time, you see it in the manga where Jane is the wallpaper of Benny's precious PC.

Revy sort of did not want Rock to lose his innocence in a weird way, as far I can see it.

I think that might be at least part of his attraction to her. I mean, he is so different from the guys she has known in her life up to now. I imagine she could find that.. innocence very attractive in a way. Sort of like a little slice of a "normal" life where it isn't all drugs and guns and mercinaries.

You also see Benny talking to Jane over the webcam in the anime, so they are obviously still in a relationship, even though it is long-distant.

Indeed. I"ve been rewatching the Fujiyama Gangsta Paradise arc from season two, and in the second scene in the park where the kids are playing with toy guns, Revy describes rather wistfully how she wishes she could have had a more carefree childhood like Rock did. That's why she doesn't want him to see what happens to Yukio-chan at the end; she doesn't want him sullied by the life they're leading now.

Of course, Balalaika puts an end to any such illusions of innocence by sending him Yukio's photo. So sad.

Yukio-chan is probably my favorite character in all of Black Lagoon.

one of my favorite scenes was in the nazi arc, i thought that was phenomenal social commentary on the continuing existence of hatred and racism. the most amazing part for me was when the chief nazi says that if only dutch was black he would have hired him and then when dutch hangs up the phone revy tells dutch they should make a bet to see who the nazi would try and shoot if he had a chance: the asian chick or the black guy, and he ofcourse choses the black guy and dutch wins the bet! i was rolling LMAO. even in his time of death dude was still racist as hell... i could write a whole essay on that scene alone. i guess thats y i love black lagoon so much. i could write a piece or an essay on all the issues focused on in every episode. just like bebop. issues rangin from poverty, violence, drug trade, commercialism, religion, organized crime, depression i could go on and on...

I just bought the final volume of the first season of Black Lagoon yesterday. I was eagerly awaiting the second season. Who will release it now?

question. If this was licensed by Geneon and now it's closing. Does that mean this becomes unlicensed once again?

Taken from Rightstuf:

Quote:
According to a letter that we received today, Geneon plans to cease DVD sales and distribution by the end of this week, accepting only non-returnable orders for releases with scheduled street dates through 11/6/2007.

We are verifying now whether the remainder of the releases will be canceled completely, but it is our guess that the 11/13 releases and beyond are canceled. Rest assured that we have adequate incoming inventory on all of the titles through 11/6 on order and will be able to fill all customer orders -- if you haven't ordered these titles, order them now!

Things are still a bit unclear as to how things going forward for Geneon will be handled, in terms of licensed properties that are in mid-release or have not yet been released. As more information is available, we will certainly update you.
So it looks like we'll have to wait and see.
