Review: Black Lagoon


Plot Summary: Okajima Rokuro is a Japanese businessman…in a town full of Japanese businessmen. His normal day consists of social drinking with clients and being kicked around by his bosses. He finally gets a break though, as he’s sent by his company to the tropical seas of Eastern China to deliver a disc…only his boat gets hijacked by a band of mercenaries hired to retrieve the disc. “Rock” (as he is newly dubbed by his captors) catches the interest of the only female merc “Revyi” as she thinks he’s worth a ransom, taking him hostage. However, the disc that was stolen has a terrible secret that’s unknown to Rock, which causes massive confusion and chaos for both him…and his kidnappers.

Villains among villains what kind of people would turn out that way and how do they operate in the real world. This is what Black Lagoon brings to you and things just keep getting more and more volatile. Rock is the normal japanese guy who through fate joins the Black Lagoon company. They work as a devliery company in the south east seas and they deal with all kinds of people. With all the different criminal organizations they deal with Rock is still not a Villain and that is something refreshing around there, but there is something inside of him and he opens up his eyes to his world. This is one anime with complex characters and each one has their story. Revy is the nut case in the group who pretty much wants to kill and has the skills to do it, and the way she interacts with Rock is hilarious, but I really do like how this anime developed and the whole story.
