Well this arc in both the anime and the manga was what finally put me off Black Lagoon I mean it started out great but then it got ridiculous! I mean I liked the first series of the anime and manga however with the Yakuza arc of Second Barrage (which was absurd and had a few big plot holes!) and this OVA takes the biscuit! I hated the writing of this OVA, while to his credit Rei Hiroe did show some restraint in the ending of how he ended the arc but the OVA Roberta's Blood Trail was a different story.
Also I grew to dislike Fabiola in the arc because she was so irritating she made no real attempt to understand the situations she was in or how things really work and in the end she showed no gratitude. Throughout both the manga and anime in this arc I really wished she would get killed.
This was one of the biggest disappointments I had ever known both in terms of anime and of manga.
