Black Lagoon – Anime Watch

If there is no Robin Hood why don’t you become Robin Hood!Rock, Black Lagoon.

This anime has been worth my time, and here are some reasons why it might be worth yours too.

Black Lagoons characters are complex, none being plain Black or White. Considering Rock, one of shows main protagonists, not only does he serve function as a gateway into the world of Black Lagoon, he is designed so that our impressions of him to change over time as he evolves throughout the series. Rock is not alone, he’s accompanied by a fascinating cast of characters, and relationships between them (namely between Rock and Revy).

As well as awesome characters the series employs:

  • Great use of imagery, particularly the use of shadows, their masterful use of facial expressions which can be particularly seen with their Omake episodes, and Roanapur as the land of the dead?
  • A fantastic job with the English dub.
  • A rich story lines giving you plenty to think about, namely the Vampire Twins story arc.

If you enjoy food for thought mixed with action, drama and dark comedy in a realistic setting, you should definitely give this a watch.

The story begins on the day the Yggdrasil servers are to be shut down. Instead of being ejected back into the real world, our protagonist finds himself trapped, transported into a living game world with his domain and subjects.

  • Attack on Titan boasts an amazing sense of scale.
  • Top notch music, (for the sake of staying spoiler free) my personal favorite track being in an awesome scene of Captain Levi in the forest.
  • Great collection of characters.
  • Questions proposed by the story leaves you wondering.
  • Like the art style with its cannons and ‘Tudor-esque’ housing styles.
