Episode 1
Black Lagoon
Rokuro Okajima is your ordinary Japanese salary man... meek, mundane and metropolitan. His business trip to the South East Asia turns from a pleasure cruise to festival of pain when Revy, Dutch and Benny, the crew of the Black Lagoon, take him hostage. Unfortunately for all of them, the data disc that Rokuro has carries classified information that threatens the peace and security of the entire world!

After a particularly horrific gunfight, the crew escapes with their hostage Rokuro "Rock" Okajima.

Facing certain death at the hands of hardened mercenaries, Rock comes up with a plan that is so insane that it might work.

While the rest of the crew awaits their orders, Dutch walks the beat and runs into a rival boss out to recruit the Black Lagoon to his side of the fence. Things get ugly when a small fleet of pirates out for blood interrupts an ordinary job. Revy's dark and brutal nature is revealed as she jumps ship and lays waste to their enemies.

The action-adventure series Black Lagoon (2006) marks the ongoing confluence of Japanese and American filmmaking. Rokura Okajima, a minor flunky from the powerful Asahi Corp, thinks his life is over when he's kidnapped by pirates while acting as a courier of secret information. It's only his career at Asahi that ends: he joins pirates as "Rock." The trio of Dutch, the understated leader; happy-go-lucky techie Benny; and trigger-happy Revy becomes a quartet. They're less pirates than soldiers of fortune, ready to do anything if the price is right. Dutch, Benny, and Rock are fairly typical anime characters and form a credible team. But the over-the-top Revy throws the show out of whack. Captain Jack Sparrow would blanch at her casual murders and potty-mouthed insults: She's about as engaging as a rattlesnake in an Easter basket. Although it's based on a manga by Rei Hiroe, Black Lagoon feels like a cartoon version of a Hollywood blockbuster. Extremely violent and very profane, Black Lagoon is not for the squeamish or easily offended. (Unrated, suitable for ages 17 and older: violence, profanity, grotesque imagery, alcohol and tobacco use, Nazi imagery) --Charles Solomon
