Product Description

Deadly assassin-turned-maid Roberta returns to the criminal's paradise of Roanapur, dead set on revenge - no matter the cost. In a backdrop of violent chaos, the smugglers of the Lagoon Company team up with Roberta's employer to save her... or at least to stop her bloody rampage.

The five-part OVA Black Lagoon: Roberta's Blood Trail (2010) picks up where the last TV series--Black Lagoon: The Second Barrage--left off. Roberta, a maid who suggests the Terminator in long braids, goes on a rampage to avenge the death of Lovelace, her former employer. His assassination somehow involved the CIA, the NSA, Asian and South American drug cartels, and, although the Lovelace family is supposed to be from Venezuela, the Colombian revolutionary group FARC. Flying bullets, knives, explosives, blood, and four-letter words take up so much screen time, there's little left for character development or a coherent narrative. Naturally, the combined forces of the CIA, NSA, and US military don't stand a chance against a pill-popping maid who packs more heat than the North Korean army (including an 18th-century flintlock). Fortunately the mercenary/pirate quartet of Black Lagoon is on the scene. The fragmentary story line includes a nasty anti-American tone: a Cuban military officer comments, "Some American heads would make nice souvenirs." But there's plenty of material to offend pretty much anyone, including a chain-smoking nun, a heroin addict, and a Chinese assassin who speaks a brand of pidgin English that would embarrass Charlie Chan. Leading the charge is potty-mouthed Revy, who calls a dying Hispanic soldier "beaner" before shooting him in cold blood. Black Lagoon isn't the most violent series in the history of anime, but its gleefully sadistic tone makes the nonstop slaughter more repugnant. The endless string of blood and profanity would probably earn Roberta's Blood Trail an X rating if it were released theatrically. (Rated TV MA; more appropriate for viewers over 18: graphic violence, violence against women, extensive profanity, grotesque imagery, torture, alcohol, drug and tobacco use, racial slurs, offensive ethnic stereotypes, offensive religious imagery, sexual situations) --Charles Solomon

    Black Lagoon was an unforgettable experience thanks to its intoxicating blend of action and awesome characters. So when the series ended many were left at a loss to find a suitable replacement. But fans need worry no longer, as this set brings back the explosions , guns and characters we love so much - all in an English dub! If that isn't enough to get you excited, then the return of a certain gun wielding Spanish maid is sure to clench the deal for you.

    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.

    After reading the Amazon description of this (as well as that for the first two Black Lagoon series) supplied by Charles Solomon, I wondered who he was and why I should care. Google took care of the first (he is a useless git of a media studies/self proclaimed animation expert teaching at UCLA) but utterly failed to reveal why his opinion might be worth more than used toiled paper. (Frankly, the cretins meepings suggest that he lives an extraordinarily sheltered life and knows little history, current events, or culture outside that of his protected ivory tower.) That said, no, this is likely not something you show to your kids along with "Frozen" because it has (OMG!) people smoking and drinking. Well, there is a lot of gratuitous violence, too. And some rather Disney-inappropriate vulgar language. Also, apparently most upsetting to Mr. Solomon, USSOCOM operators are not portrayed as heroes doing universally heroic things all the time. (Were Mr Solomon writing a /review/ of this or any other anime, his opinion would be fine, however, it is presented as a /description/ where his personal squeamishness and political views are inappropriate and irrelevant.)

    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.

    Finally, after four years of waiting, Universal/Geneon has released the third season of "Black Lagoon" called "Roberta's Blood Trail". The psycho soldier turned maid has returned to create more havoc and spill a very large volume of blood. "Lagoon" fans will remember 'Roberta' from her murderous rampage in the first season. Those of you who have never seen "Black Lagoon" should go and buy season one (Black Lagoon) and season two (Black Lagoon: The Second Barrage) to get the complete back story of the Black Lagoon crew and Roberta's first psychotic attack on the rat-hole city of Roanpour. Her first visit was bloody, but this time it's a massacre.

    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 (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 has them all. Don't miss this.
