Action packed anime with substance, 24 February 2007
Author: chrichtonsworld from Netherlands

"Black Lagoon" is a team of mercenaries who are hired for all sorts of things! This anime is mostly about their adventures! The action used in this anime is similar to that of a hong kong movie! Mostly it is heroic bloodshed! With some martial arts in it! Although this show has a lot of action it also has some substance! There are some themes in the plot that will make you think! For example there are these twins (little children) who are coldblooded killers! But they are this way because they have been (sexually) abused and forced into this life of crime in a very brutal way! So these victims have become villains themselves! Maybe it is too far-fetched to believe,but in real life these things do happen! What makes this anime so special that there is no real evil and real good,all the characters are all villains! Even "Rock" the main character admits being a villain but one who observes! He is the one in the middle of all the things that happen! There are many interesting characters! There are gun blazing nuns, a "terminating" maid,killer twins and much much more! There is also "Revy", a very attractive Chinese-American woman who rolled into this life of crime with ease! Her nickname is "Two Hand" (what do you think she holds in these two hands??? Guns of course!) You will know very fast what makes her special! It is nice to see that among these characters most of them are also gun blazing women who are just as dangerous as the men! There are a lot of jokes in this anime who are actually really subtle! In very serious conversations people constantly are referring to famous movies and actors,which make it a feast for movie lovers!
