Description
Lock n' load with the baddest soldiers of fortune ever to hit the high seas of Southeast Asia! Aboard their World War II era torpedo boat, the Black Lagoon, Dutch the Boss, Benny the Mechanic, Revy Two Hand, and Rock, the salaryman from Japan, deliver anything, anywhere. In the dangerous underworld of the Russian Mafia, Chinese Triads, Colombian drug cartels, crazed assassins, and ruthless mercenaries, it's hard to know whom to trust. But if you've got a delivery to make, and you don't mind a little property damage along the way, you can count on the crew of the Black Lagoon.

Great manga,that has a great set of characters, and a made up city that actually seems believable. Rock and Revy really go well together especially with their opposite beliefs on almost everything. Revy is one of, if not the most badass female character ever. Black Lagoon should be off hiatus very soon so new chapters can come up. *just a heads up if you want to read this after watching the anime keep in mind that both of them have the same arcs, but in a different order.

This manga is like an action series on TV. It has great drawing and nice action scenes, but not much else. The characters aren't being developed at all and there's no overall goal. There's just a series of random, but still entertaining, fights. But with only arcs about the day-to-day adventures, the story gives a sense that it isn't going anywhere. There's also intermittent philosophical rants that are way too long and confusing.

Black Lagoon is Michael Bay and Tarantino's love child in manga form. Lots of explosions, senseless murder, gunplay, titties, and long speeches from the characters about life and how cool it is to live by the way of the gun. If you like all-out-logic-defying-action mangas, then this is for you. If not, dont even bother trying it.

Mass mayhem and bloody rampage does indeed work in this serie. Funniest thing is that so far there hasnt been a single completely impossible thing what they have done in anime and manga. Unlike most of series which are based on unrealistic stuff, this isnt.

I like to look at Black Lagoon as the summer blockbuster of the manga world. It does exactly what you expect it to- entertain you with nearly mindless violence, completely unrealistic flashy action panels, and some underlying plot and character development that, while nothing incredible, complements the action nicely without detracting at all. This isn't really something you should be thinking much with, and it doesn't try to be all that often, which is probably why I find it to be more successful than others in the same genre. It's just violent mayhem, plain and simple- but it works.

Just have fun with it.

To tell the truth i like the anime more than the manga, it was the anime that introduced me to the manga really, and when it ended i couldn'tt help but search for the manga. It's a pretty awesome series as soon as it starts and the action doesn't let you go for a minute, fast paced, high action, just the way i like it.

A bit harder to follow than the anime, but still a goofy, enjoyable action read. Obviously with this frequent and detailed action scenes, it flows alot better in the anime, as does the snappy dialouge and conversations; but the manga has the same great, quirky characters and charm that is so attractive in the anime. You just need to read it by volume rather than individual chapter by chapter, because you can get into the flow of it.

Some very interesting characters set in a lawless, crime haven in South East Asia makes this an intriguing prospect. Throw in our main character, a stranded japanese salaryman, and we have our story. And a hell of a good one it was. Art is appealing with emphasis on fast paced and fanciful firefights usually led by Revy, the 'anti-heroine' of this story. The plot is top-notch imo with frequent references to Western pop-culture, politics and history. This manga is also quite heavily laced with a sense of irony and gallow's humour. All in all a very good read and certainly very recommendable.

As with many readers, i watched the anime but was left hanging. I picked up the manga to continue on where it left off. One can only hope that Anonymous spore will continue with the scanlation.
