Is there an indication of who the voice actors are for the English version?

(Side note: IMDB had nothing on this series until I added it, then they put in only about 10% of what I submitted, under a ridiculously Engrished title..)

Like you, I thought the unbelievability of the action sequences detracted from the overall sense of realism in the rest of the show. The protagonists are always assaulted by a hail of bullets and nearly always (but not always) escape unscathed. This was most problematic in the sequence you're talking about here between Revy and Roberta. While it's less pronounced later on, there's still a strong fantasy component in the action sequences.

I like many things about Black Lagoon, but implausible battles like these are not among them.

Black Lagoon isn't a realistic portrayal at mercenary/gang life. It it more of a Hollywood action flick where the antagonist always has horrible aim and the protagonist has unlimited ammo hack on. I personally enjoyed the battles since it is a nice departure from the typical giant robots fighting one another or heroes with swords and energy attacks versus a multi-tentacled monster. Although it would be nice to have a truly "realistic" action show, an anime version isn't really necessary since a live action version would serve a show of that genre much better.

I agree with ImClueless. I am enjoying Black Lagoon for it's over the top action and "real world" appeal. It is definitely a breath of fresh air after watching hours of giant mech sword battles piloted by superhuman high school students who struggle through social activities.

Rewatching the Roberta episodes brought home many of anselfir's criticisms above.

Spoiler:


Ah, well, Fujiyama Gangster Paradise still awaits.

That's due to alterations on the part of the animators from the manga. Originally Roberta and Lagoon Company went straight from the exploded bar to, her jumping on the car and being aimed at, then straight (non-stop) to the port where Balalaika organised the showdown, so there was little time for them to let the hostage go.

(And, obviously, the extention helped add in bonus Terminator references. )

Hrrm I'm not sure, it's probably not the same as the manga...haven't watched season one in a while. In the manga though she is listening to "Devil Man" by White Zombie.

So, discussion seems to have died down since this was licensed. So, to make a note as an addendum for anyone reading it, be reminded that there was a "second barrage" season 2. A separate thread for discussing that is here : http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?t=36151 though I imagine people do discuss both series collectively, they do have separate trackers

http://animesuki.com/series.php/792.html
http://animesuki.com/series.php/980.html

So it'd make sense to have separate threads in some situations especialy when there was a huge delay, although both seasons of this did come out rather closely, within 2006.

Lately there is news regarding Blagoon as I'm sure it's been termed (yay portmanteas) in that there is a new series of OVAs coming out intermittendly 2010-2011. 3 out of 5 have aired so far: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...7s_Blood_Trail

I'm not sure if it's been licensed like the original 2 series have been. There's currently not an animesuki tracker for it so I am unsure to suggest fansubs or not.
