Quotes

Sister Eda: [Janet Bhai is running away from gangsters while Revy, Rock and Sister Eda keep pace with her in Benny's car] Hey, sis. Jogging this late at night? How hard-working of you.
Janet Bhai: You! You tricked me!
Sister Eda: That's pretty disrespectful. How can you talk that way to your guardian angel?
Janet Bhai: Screw you! I thought I was going to die!
Sister Eda: Oh really? Do you want us to save you? Think hard. If you don't want to hand over the plates, I guess we don't have a choice. You'd better run to a mosque next time. What do you think?
Revy: [...]

"transformative"
13 November 2016 | by A_Different_DrummerSee all my reviews

This reviewer does mainly standard movies/TV (check out my reviews) but after a friend tipped me to Steins Gate (now seen it twice top to bottom) I was sort of hooked on quality anime.

This is my second fave anime. I apply the same standards I apply to film/TV -- the production (writing, audio, effects) has to be good enough to make you feel you left behind your own life and draw you in to another world.

(See for example the short-lived series BANSHEE, currently my #1 pick in recent live action TV ... and they shut down the series because they wanted to, not because the ratings were weak).

Black Lagoon makes me feel, like the character Rock, I left my world behind. The animation is to die for, the character are unforgettable (love the MAID!) and the dialog in the English dub is sassy.

Highly recommended.
