Black Lagoon: Roberta's Blood Trail (BL:RBT) is a five episode OVA series animated by Madhouse, that centres around the character of Roberta, who previously appeared in BL season 1. Her first appearance made it clear she was not to be taken lightly as she was one of the few who could match Revy in terms of sheer madness and skills with a gun; however, in RBT we see an even more extreme version of Roberta; one which will excite and create fear at the same time.
The set begins with the death of a certain person close to Roberta - an event which leads to her abandoning her role as maid to the Lovelace family and becoming a bloodhound who is determined to have her vengeance - even if it means fighting against Roanapur and the US army! The setup is a brilliant one, and paves the way for 5 episodes of intense action and ends with a sensational climax.
Of course, this being an OVA format as opposed to a set amount of episodes such as season 1 and 2 of BL means that there are changes. Fortunately, every single one of these changes are for the better. For starters, the episodes themselves are longer - 33 minutes as opposed to 23. This allows for a more natural pace so that the story can be done full justice and not feel rushed in any shape or form.Read more ›
Without going too far into thls season to spoil it for you, she is on a rampage against the CIA/NSA for killing her employer Mr. Martinez, who saved her life when she needed it and she became his maid in return. Naturally she seeks revenge for his murder and
to protect his only son. The blood flows in buckets and the Lagoon crew find themselves involved in her revenge,as the CIA/NSA soldiers have hidden themselves in Roanpour. And 'Rock' has to come up with a plan to save everyone involved.
The animation is first class and this season doesn't disappoint. It's just as good as the first two seasons (still available) so you really should buy these to help you become involved in this whole sordid, bloody affair. Available either in a Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack or Blu-Ray only. (I have noticed that almost all the new anime being released is as a combo pack, with some exceptions.)
You will enjoy this season as you will the first two. The price is very reasonable through Amazon.com (in fact it's the lowest price I've seen). There are a few extras on the DVD, but more on the Blu-Ray. If you enjoy great anime, you will love the entire three seasons of BLACK LAGOON and Amazon.com has them all. Don't miss this.
Although the item description is Blu-ray, this is actually a combo pack with DVD/Blu-ray. Included are trailers with actual previews and not just openings so I know what I should be ordering in the future (wow! what a concept...)
Roberta's Blood Trail is, in story terms, I think weaker than the first two Black Lagoon series, but still enjoyable. (I do like the animated iteration moreso than the printed counterpart, especially in this arc.) Its still a Black Lagooon story: pirates in Elco torpedo boats, displaced Spetznaz, well-dressed Triads, nuns with guns and hidden agendas, all in the nest of corruption and vipers that is Ruanapur. The English language cast hasn't changed and their performances remain strong.Read more ›

|This is a combo pack right?||
Absolutely a DVD/Blu Ray combo pack, haven't a clue why it was changed by someone on here.
The cover art should show you that it's a combo pack too, hope that helps.
