Black Lagoon – Volume 2 (Animé/Geneon/DVD-Video)


Picture: B-     Sound: B     Extras: C-     Episodes: B



Okajima Rokuro was an average business man until he met and joined Black Lagoon.  Since then he is gave up his past and is the pirate known as Rock.  Doing whatever gets them paid, they do jobs from average shipping to things that aren't so legal as well.  Their usual customers are with other mercenaries, mafia, and gun runners, life is dangerous, but then so are they.  Ever in danger they rely on their wits, guns and each other.


This is an action packed Animé, filled with explosions and constant adventure.  The main characters aren't really 'good' or 'bad'.  As Rock learns the trade of being a pirate, life isn't all as straight and narrow as it cuts to be.  And there are far worst things than pirates, them not getting paid!


This is a really great Animé, while the characters aren't necessary always the 'good guys', you still want to root for them being the underdog.  Life isn't fair, so why should they be? As Rock learns the ropes of being a pirate *and not to get shot*, he learns the morality of a pirate.  And if the enemy doesn't kill him first, his shipmates will.


Episode 5: Eagle Hunting and the Hunting Eagle


The race is on when the Lagoon Company and a bunch of Neo Nazi is both after the treasure in a sunken submarine.  Rock and Revy is left on their own when their ship is forced to run.


Episode 6: Moonlit Hunting Ground


The Neo Nazi stolen the treasure from the Lagoon Company, but they aren't giving up with out a fight.  They'll take back the treasure, over their dead bodies if necessary.... but will they find out who is behind them?


Episode 7: Calm Down, Two Men


As the team is in port getting new supplies, the relationship between Rock and Revy gets tense.  Will Rock kiss and make up with Revy or will he just get a bullet in the head instead?


Episode 8: Rasta Blasta


The Lagoon Company as a package to deliver, a young boy... only thing is there is a catch, a pretty maid in lace chasing after them, caring a very big gun!



This Animé once again has excellent DTS 5.1 sound and decent Dolby Digital 5.1 sound quality mixes and sharp and well colored anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image quality.  Scenes are fairly well detail and have good graphics.  Extras include only trailers for other Geneon product this time.
