I want it so badly.
Plague said he'd translate them.
I wish he did.
You know I never considered it, because it's never stated, but it would make perfect sense for her to harvest organs for the black market.
Well most of her business operations are talked about, shown, or explained somewhere, either in the story, or in tertiary material.
Her as a person is more of a mystery than her trade.
I agree, but damn, her body is still fine, her sexy dress really shows off her fine hips and legs.
I always felt that it would be neat to have a series of short arcs focusing on various characters, with at least one chapter/episode showing their day to day life and how the people in these groups relate to each other, maybe show a bit of their past in another chapter/episode.
Ideally, those would fit best between main Lagoon Company arcs, but we're kind of hurting for any content at this moment.
Thats actually a very good idea.
It could show in the background some happenings from the later episodes with the main characters to show they happen at the same time.
If i were Hiroe, I'd script it so that the series would go onto a brief Shenhua, Sawyer, and Rotton story justtttt as Rock makes is about love to Revy. Like, have it so that one page shows Revy start to strip, a single tear running down her eye because finally found true love, then you turn the page and BAM, there's a full-spread image of Saywer and Rotton causing chaos in Shenhua's home (oven spewing fire, etc).
>That actually exists, but it's untranslated. Gen Urobuchi wrote two spinoff novels, the second features Rotton as a main character with the other two as supports.
i'd like to read that
I don't think she'd be that bad in the kitchen.
Rotton, on the other hand...
>Is Black Lagoon still a thing in Japan?
Interest is probably still there, Hiroe just hasn't been working.
>Will there ever be more anime of it?
If there's more manga to base it off.
Rotton would def. set Shenhua's home on fire if he tried to cook something.
Well, it got a pachinko machine, so it is now immortalized as one of the many anime that got one.
Also, a Revy statue is going to be released, but it's an improved version of a previously-released one.
I know she would like it if Sawyerfag did it, but I'm not sure you about you, anon.
Good thing Sawyer is experienced in cleaning and can help fix Rotton's mess.
What is it, the fifth one now?
I mean, obviously I'd want figures of the trio here, but just a figurine of Fabiola or the twins would be a nice change of pace.
That's a flattering statement.
Im sure she would like it.

Q.Why Lotton never shoot?
A.Because he can't give a cool name to one of his guns(left one).
Anyway, he gave name to right one "elegy".
Revealed in novel.(I don't have there, but I just saw Japanese Wikipedia.)
Still no Fabiola or Sawyer figures though. ';_;
There ought to be a chart like this for the males of the cast, with bulge sizes
Do you think he has a nickname for his dick?
BL will always be in your heart, anon.

I have only Japanese original one.
Lotton:But my magnum-
Shenhua:You don't be going make a child, you know.Even if you got castration, moumantai("no problem" in Kantonese).
In volume 9 chapter 67, translated by me who have no English proficienty.
Also, he might be weird, but his body is pretty top notch, he'd not be bad for breeding honestly, he's got a lot of muscles, and a pretty face.
Shhh, no tears. Only Sawyer now.
There's like 1 guy who draws Black Lagoon dj, figure it out yourself.
Right? Why did the manga go on hiatus right when Rock was getting NTR'd away from Revy and gonna go full evil mob boss baby rapist.
She's a lovely girl.
The one there is, is pretty hot however.
I like Azasuke's art, shame he doesn't draw other Black Lagoon girls.
He got lazy and stopped working after all the money really rolled in.
Or he just didn't know where to take the series (even though the OP stated a good way while he could think of a new plot for Rock and co.) and went to hentai.
I've been waiting so many years for Rock to do some full Metal Gear Solid villain crap and Revy to try and stop him.
>Revy laying on the floor bleeding out
>For the first time in decades she lets her true emotions out
>"R-Rock, you c-can't, don't do this...
>"Rock, please, l-let's just go back. You k-know I've always lo-"
>Rock shoots her and activates the nukes or whatever
Then I guess the black guy would stop him or something after that.
As I understand, it's a little bit of both.
But he was seen showing WIPs of pages back in late December, we might actually get a chapter this year, if we're REALLY lucky, he might actually get going again.
>shame he doesn't draw other Black Lagoon girls
there are more than 2?
>2 NTR Revy
>2 Vanilla Revy
>1 BLACKED Revy
>Well, it got a pachinko machine, so it is now immortalized as one of the many anime that got one.
That isn't the first pachinko machine BL has gotten. It's had 2-3 by now.
>Also, a Revy statue is going to be released, but it's an improved version of a previously-released one.
It's really fucking cool though. I got one on order.
I wish there was a way to rip the assets from the pachinko machines and the PSP pachinko game, some of it looks kinda neat.
Yep, Japan arc after Rock asks Balalaika to wipe out the Yakuza. Forget the exact episode number.
I guess BL will always live on...in some form... :(
I remember when that doujin came out, there was one anon who was MAD salty about it.
It hurts anon, but it's the truth.
Have a beer with Revy to calm down and accept your fate.
Hiroe did tweet a preview of the next issue
in December ;_;
I remember a few anons getting salty because of how OOC everyone was (it's a goddamn porn doujin, idiots), and one troll insisting that Dutch fucking Revy was totally realistic and screwing your coworkers is a normal part of working life (boy have I been doing things wrong).
>screwing your coworkers is a normal part of working life
I want normans to go and stay go
That's almost last week in Hiroe time.
>people complaining about out of character in a doujin
That made me lel.
What amused me the most was the guy who was angry and insecure because Dutch is black, and started complaining about how dehumanizing it was and "He didn't even draw his dick bigger than the other guys in these doujins!", and then it devolved into a /pol/fest. Some people are really sensitive I guess.
Please do not bring that kind of posting here, even ironically, thank you.
Well, they are outlaws. Regular formalities in a job probably go out the window when your job is to smuggle illegal goods and raid ships.
>/pol/ getting their panties in a twist over over a manga featuring primarily a Jap, a hapa, a nigger and a kike
I can't even
>Dutch fucking Revy was totally realistic and screwing your coworkers is a normal part of working life
It is when you're a big black man and a half naked girl in prostitute town.
Rei Hiroe too busy drawing porn, too lazy to finish his Magnum opus, go figure
OOH, HERE IT COMES! HERE COMES THE NIGHT TRAIN!
That doesn't quite turn the Lagoon company into some sort of free love hippie commune. It's an explanation for why Revy is allowed to show up to work drunk and cuss like a sailor without getting fired, not for why she'd screw boss for pretty much no reason.
I live in LA, Revy's outfit wouldn't turn heads at all around here.
You want more Brack Ragoon?
Have some yaoi!
>Revy is a virgin.
You don't seriously believe that, do you?
you want more black lagoon?
Then guess what i'm doing with my left hand
She was only canonically a part-time dominatrix, which, contrary to what you think, often do not have any penetrative intercourse with their clients.
Read Dreary Ghost Daydream. Good realistic supernatural about a virgin dominatrix. Furthest she went is letting a guy eat her out, and he hung himself afterwards.
I've said it before and I'll say it again - once Rock and Revy ship the series is over. It's the best possible outcome we could hope for and things afterward will get stale quickly.
So save that pairing til the end. We still need a new character or two to ship for CIA, Balalaika, and Dutch. We can get spinoffs for side characters, and frankly I really want cute prostitutes doing cute things in the whorehouse above the yellow flag when they aren't taking customers.
>tfw no Terminator Maid will ever /ss/ you
>you're far too old now to /ss/ anyway
Just end it senpai
Oh you better believe I'd be all over that. But that doesn't necessarily mean that Dutch would be into it, or that Revy would be either. When there's no sexual tension, rooming with a chick is just a miserable, stinky experience.
I saw a chick wearing almost the exact same size daisy dukes yesterday.
Yesterday was a good day.
Rock and Revy are going to kill each other. That new girl will cause the fissure and Rock and her will split off from the Black Lagoon Company to do some evil keikaku shit.
The series may have a perspective shift and be told from Revy's POV as she and Rock are now opposing forces and Rock is going nuclear. Sorta like what happened in Desert Punk or to a lesser degree Peace Maker.
she also grew up in a really nice home and had loving parents who doted on her until she went full anti-establishment teenager and then with some random black guy started to sell things to help her with her edge.
Is that better for you now?
At the end, Revy is forced to kill Rock. After the deed is done, she tosses her cutlasses to the ground, walks to a ship, and sails to where ever the wind tells her to go. No goodbyes, just a slow walk to a boat she can jack. Once she sees that nobody can look at her face anymore, she bursts into tears and makes the first prayer to God she has ever made; a prayer for forgiveness.
>It might work in doujins, but realistically, you can't just show up to work drunk and hope to bang the Boss Nigger
>At the end, Revy is forced to kill Rock.
I think this would actually be an acceptable end to the series.
I just want Very Sad Revy, goddamnit. Formally remorseless characters bursting into tears always gets me.
Though your scenario does have me imagining either Shenhua or Sawyer standing on Revy's body, eagerly proclaiming herself the New Best Roanpaur Girl.
>you can't just show up to work drunk
Given that everybody seems to be sipping Heireken at all hours, I can't see this being an issue
>The Roanapur police are nonexistent
Nah, they exist, but they're mostly just there to make sure people don't start shit on the streets, and to put up or take part in bounty hunts.
Lawd, she's precious.
>Rock and Revy are going to kill each other.
Nah. I honestly feel it's more likely that Revy is gonna kill Feng, or that Rock somehow gets Feng killed.
How about both,
or 1 open-ended survivor?
>Nah. I honestly feel it's more likely that Revy is gonna kill Feng, or that Rock somehow gets Feng killed.
I'd think this if it hadn't been in hiatus so long. A plot like that would mean Hiroe was going for the long haul instead of making Rock evil as quickly as he can.
implying Rock and Revy is going to get married and live happily ever after
More likely he'll take Mister Cheng's spot as one of the big gang leaders. Balalaika is too important in the scope of the story to be used as a stepping stone.
>And the deck is incorrectly depicted as wooden.
PT Boats are built out of wood. What they forgot was the grey paint.
>I just want Very Sad Revy, goddamnit.
You don't need to Rock to die for that, just make Revy worry that that he will.
Even if you discount the rape flashback, I don't think it's unrealistic that she would have had sex before, it's not unusual really.
Shenhua seems like she would gloat, but Sawyer seems like she would be more indifferent.
>You don't need to Rock to die for that, just make Revy worry that that he will.
I'd rather a sad Revy because the "Rock" that she knew was dead. Meaning Rock is full bad guy nuking schools and eating babies.
Been over 4 months since those thumbnails teasers
This, and the fact she could've stopped it would make her even more sad.
I've never seen Black Lagoon as tragic as that. It's been pretty dark at times, but I don't see Hiroe going full soul crushing like that.
That might be just wishful thinking though.
Don't have to be married to live happily ever after.
>PT Boats are built out of wood
True, but as I get the Black Lagoon had all the wood replaced with steel plating.
I don't know a lot about the PT boats, but is the engine still stock? Is it still even the same PT boat if it isn't?
I feel kind of the same way.
I don't see Rock becoming Cobra Commander (although him in a Cobra Commander outfit with Revy as the Baroness would be pretty cool), but him being a major crime boss at some point is pretty likely.
I just want him to start talking about the war economy and raise an absolute death flag.
I think we all know that the maids have to share Garcia.
>Looks like she's going to NTR Garcia
>Shoots the guy instead with hidden belt gun
>Punches him to death while screaming that she belongs to Garcia and Garcia alone
Greatest confession in any manga/anime ever
Yeah but you just know that they have hot, forbidden sex with him every night.
I dunno if the kid's gonna come back from that.
>Yeah, he looked super psyched.
It all makes sense now! Black Lagoon is actually a romcom but with psychopaths.
Does this mean that Rock and Revy will fight each other with Metal Gears, then have a fistfight to the death on top of a battleship?
>True, but as I get the Black Lagoon had all the wood replaced with steel plating.
Looks like wooden planks to me. Steel plates on the deck would be too heavy.
>I don't know a lot about the PT boats, but is the engine still stock? Is it still even the same PT boat if it isn't?
To take it out you'd have to take the boat half apart so yes.
Don't think about this too hard. IRL pirates and smugglers use fishing boats to be less conspicuous.
>Save Roberta to look cool (even though it was mostly Rock)
>Realize you need to live with that mess of a woman for your entire life
wew. kid shoulda looked over that contract a lil better.
Ideally. Rock will talk about making the world into Roanapur or some other lunatic crap. And then when Revy finally kills him it'll be something like "I did it to destroy Roanapur. I did it for you." or some other good guy all along crap.
Revy will turn out to be the dog raised in the wild after all and realize this is what she always wanted.
Anon, he saved her PRECISELY so he could live the rest of his life with that mess of a woman.
I'd go all the lengths for Sawyer, that's for sure.
How's he gonna take it when she calls out his father's name during sex, realizes it, gets guilty, tries to strangle him, jumps out a window, buys heroin and shoots it up into her eyeballs?
He'll be used to Roberta's psychotic episodes by then, so it'll be no big deal.
I believe that'd be up to him, wouldn't it?
I'd be mighty surprised if he didn't go for Roberta first and foremost, however. Threeway would develop a bit later, as I see it.
I know, right? I've seen a bunch of cosplays, and this is one of the very few who gets the clothes and hair right, who has the right body, and a face that comes even close, but nobody, NOBODY ever gets the saw right.
>sticking your dick in crazy
Warning about sticking your dick in crazy in Black Lagoon is silly since the entire series is about some dude slowly sticking his dick into a living version of the DSM-5's Bipolar and Related Disorders and Trauma- and Stressor-Related Disorders section.
>still no doujins
Fuck, and it has so much potential too.
>blowjob contest to see who can make him cum more
>that thing that happens in threeways sometimes where one girl mounts the other girl and the one on top beckons him to be the meat in the ass & pussy sandwich while the one on the bottom blushes and expresses extreme embarrassment
lots of cuddling afterwards
If only I had the artistic skill.
>that thing that happens in threeways sometimes where one girl mounts the other girl and the one on top beckons him to be the meat in the ass & pussy sandwich while the one on the bottom blushes and expresses extreme embarrassment
I never got any serious lewd vibes from those three. Maybe Shenhua with dem legs, dem boobs, and dem nails, but that's it.
>There will never be a Black Lagoon game that mixes up GTA's open world with Devil May Cry's cobmat.
I know about Sleeping Dogs, but damnit, I want to cause havok as Revy, Eda, Roberta, and/or Shenhua, not some random Chinese dude.
It's not lewd if they really like him, and we all know they do.
You really don't know? I'm referring to this pose:
Flip through a few two-female-one-male-threesome doujins and I guarantee it won't be too long before you see it happening.
>black lagoon thread
>NOT sticking your dick in crazy
>telling others not to either
I dunno, CIA seems to have it together, ore or less
Learn to draw, make our dreams come true!
I think once you get him going, he can hump pretty hard.
Shenhua totally knows what she's got, look at her dress.
One of Black Lagoon's gimmicks is crazy and psychotic waifus, from a tomboy gunslinger to a blonde mafia queen covered with burn scars, kicking ass. Telling BL fans not to stick their dick in crazy is like telling a KKK member that racism is bad and you should stop being racist.
Eda's pretty bitchy and nuts herself; it's just that we don't see her as much as Revy. She's a Revy that exchanged some crazy for sluttiness and a pass into the CIA.
I never quite cared for that one image, to be fully honest, it's so off model.
nah they open a comic book store
I love that image.
Nigga dey all Chinese!
Hiroe is teasing the virgin reveal super hard.
Match made in hell. They'll be ruling Raonapur soon.
Who did it? Who is the bastard that fucked Revy away from being a reverse trap?
Roberta's future prospects look grim.
Benny is more popular than Otacon ever was. What'd he get, like one pity fuck from Naomi and cucked his dad into suicide when he was 13?
Being a dominatrix is actually a pretty shitty job even though it's easy money without completely prostituting yourself. So many dudes press for scat play it's insane.
>So many dudes press for scat play it's insane.
That's just... ugh; about what proportion, would you say? Just trying to figure out my odds of running into one of those disgusting barbarians when I walk out my front door.
yep, Revy wasn't too happy when Rowan asked her to come back and work for him
Sheeit, where'd you find that translated?
yeech, the art isn't very good past that one page
>"I've been pampered by Wani"
Someday you too will realize that the art is little more than a mental lubricant.
I'll have to do a followup with newer images soon.
I wish Azasuke drew some more cheerful things with her, because he's so good at drawing her.
Y'know, this might come off as a strange question, but you don't seem to be quite from around here, like, you speak English, but slightly off, what part of the world are you from?
They seem like they'd be such good friends.
Watch as this is how the series REALLY ends.
It's chronologically been 21 years since the events of Black Lagoon. Where do you think everybody is now?
He'd have to get pretty fucked up for even Revy to feel that kind of guilt, and Rock definitely has the potential for it. Though it probably won't happen, it's be really interesting to see Black Lagoon playing out as the origin story of an incredibly powerful and irredeemably evil villainous mastermind.
Come on Rei, make it happen. The fuck do you have to lose at this point you lazy porn-drawing fuck?
Thanks for reminding me this exists, going to go reread it now.
Balalika went back to Russia, she's now one of Putin's top cronies
Benny is a multimillionaire technology entrepreneur
Dutch is gone. No one knows where he is.
Rock is either a crime boss or raising a pair of kids somewhere out in the countryside with Revy, depending on how idealistic you are
Revy is either a broken, lonely old woman or raising a pair of kids somewhere out in the countryside with Rock, depending on how idealistic you are
Rock - Retired criminal mastermind and married to Revy. They have a few homes in the USA, South America, and Japan that they go to (partially to keep things interesting, partially to avoid the cops if they start getting too suspicious). People seeing him, Revy, and their two kids walk down Los Angeles on a nice afternoon would never be able to guess what he used to be.
Revy - Unofficially married to Rock; they have two kids together. Still on a hair-trigger, but kids have mellowed her out somewhat. The teachers in the USA-based prep-schools Rock and Revy send their kids to have been on the receiving end of several Revy meltdowns.
Dutch - Left Roanapur and went back to the USA. Occasionally jokes with kids about his past, though they don't believe it.
Benny and Jane - Dead from STDs.
Sawyer - Still slicing up dudes.
Shenhua - Too old for killing, but still looks gorgeous. A bit of a playgirl in her homeland of Taiwan.
Rotton - Back where he came from, being the type of dude that still acts like he's in his 20s when he's clearly too old for that shit.
Balakalia - Still in the underworld, but as traditional organized crime has massively shrunk, she's not the power player she used to be. Location unknown.
Barkeep - Still in Roanapur after the Thai government pulled a major crackdown on it back in the early 00s. Stayed because he was happy to finally run a bar in peace.
Eda - Pulled out of Roanapur after the crackdown. Now heads up one of the CIA processing offices in the USA because she's too old for field work. Still friends with Revy, strangely enough, and pulled some strings to get the cops off Rock and Revy in the USA.
Yolanda - Fought the Thai government forces during the crackdown. She didn't survive.
Garcia - A gifted entrepreneur in South America and knows how to get the best out of any deal. He married, but rumor has it he still has the hots for his old caretaker, Roberta.
Chang - Pulled out of Roanapur during the crackdown.
Sawyer the Cleaner is one of the most feared names in professional fighting tournaments. Nobody knows her real name, but can clear out tournaments like it ain't no thang. Runs a weekly stream on Twitch that Rotton watches.
Is it NTR if while you're fucking her she's having PTSD flashbacks to a previous fuck?
Replace Revy with Feng.
Revy is dead. Rock used her as a stepping stone and tossed her aside because in the end she's nothing but a weapon, but a tool, lacking any sort of intellect or aspiration.
She was nothing but the hammer to ignite the bullet known as Rock.
Feng and Rock are going to split of from Black Lagoon company and that'll launch the main conflict that'll lead to Revy and Rock being antagonist roles for each other.
This. Even if they don't get anywhere romantically Revy will ever be part of Rock's life. He's becoming malicious but will never be evil. Same forma Revy, she'll regain some conscience bit will never stop being a survivor. Rock will never be as hardened as her. His background doesn't even compare. But they can share their strenghts.
So Feng will be Black Lagoon's Poochie, complete with Dutch and Benny arguing between the panel margins that a new and fresh female lead will bring in new readers and pleading with the author to keep her right before she's written out?
Only if you want Black Lagoon to peter out by maintaining the status quo and not be climatic and cool.
That'd be boring and not worth the hiatuses and hype in my opinion.
Like if Berserk ended without fighting Griffith, well, to a lesser degree. A lot of the duality of Rock and Revy has been built up and it would just feel unsatisfying for them to just meet in the middle.
At the end of everything Feng will be death. Rock and Revy will fight many times before Revy dissapears from sight for several years. Then Rock will finally find her now an old woman. She wont try to escape and will wait for Rock to pull the trigger.
It's not plausible forma any of them tp hit inverse extremes either. It will more believable to have Revy see her renewed faith crushed by an unexpected cruel turn reminding her how the world is and Rock starting to self destruct himself trying to be a cold monster which at the bottom he really isn't. They throught each other find hope and strenght respectively but suffer for trying to cling desperately onto it.
Rock seeks desperately power to control his life while Revy wants a way to stop feeling like human garbage.
Chain-smoking, drinking and drugs can seriously wreck your physical looks in no time. Guess what Revy does a lot?
But, BL is an anime and manga, and in anime, there appear to be no penalties for chugging alcohol and cigarettes like it's going out of style.
>cold monster which at the bottom he really isn't
He is though. The biggest underlying theme is that he was a wolf raised in captivity. His type has been compared to Cheng several times. It's a coldness that's hard to see.
Yes he's a badass motherfucker but he's not soulless, be product of his upbringing or innate Rock is fundamentaly an empathic caring man. Even when doing bad he's thinking its the best to protect others. He's not a real criminal seeking profit out of greed or hate. And the deeper he goes into the shadows the more his caring nature will make him suffer. He'll be consumed.
My Japanese is rusty as hell, but Hiroe seems to be saying that they're not boyfriend and girlfriend *right now*. Hiroe doesn't want readers to think Rock and Revy are already in a relationship, not that they will never be,
I'm betting on him casting off his humanity, rather than be consumed by it.
He literally didn't lose a wink of sleep over the people that died from his actions in Roberta's arc.
As he is now, he still has his humanity. But then again it's only 10 volumes. It's been pretty consistent in the theme that Rock is slowly losing that sort of upbringing and conditioning he got in Japan and being unleashed by Roanapur.
