Not Bad

I watched the anime first and since then turned to the manga. The anime follows the manga faithfully just with the story arcs from the first 6 volumes shuffled around a bit. What drew me in to this story was the "farcry" feel it had to it, guerilla warfare in a tropical island environment. The action can be a little over the top as people have stated but I like badass bitches, so that's ok with me.

I feel I have to comment.
1. Yes, the anime is better than the manga. (however, scanlations for the manga are extremely slow and have not yet caught up to the subbed anime)
2. The action......frankly I feel that it's just the mangaka's inexperience in laying down character background that really makes the manga seem so "over the top."
To quote another comment "It allows the Reby (or however you spell her name), to do incredibly stupid things, like running into a room full of bad guys, killing them all, while they kinda just stand there, firing their guns at nothing in particular."... in reality, that's completely possible. It all depends on the relative training and pure psychotic tendencies of the individuals in question. Not to mention that drawing/scripting action scenes isn't exactly like sketching a picture book neh?
Either way, it's the lack of depth, not the "over the top" action that kills the manga for me. The anime is just plain better.
But the manga is still worth reading, sucks that no one's scanlating it at a decent pace.

Normally, in most action manga, even if the characters are super-powerful, they get injured and spend some time formulating and learning new strategies.

In this manga, it's a little too insane: Revy(that's her name, right?) manages to bring down an entire platoon of elite fighters without even getting hurt.

Gods, this sounds more like some Hollywood movie: where the bad guys will just misfire so the main characters get to kill them and live for another day. Plus, just by randomly firing a gun around, you can bring down a room of veteran fighters? That's ... just kinda silly.

Manga is great, but I kinda like anime more. How should I pt it, hmm.. I feel that the ones who made the anime reeeealy loved the manga and put their herts into their work.
Levy seems more cute in manga.... heh.

This is quite rare, but this is one of the example where anime is better than manga.

Bah, it doesn't really matter about how real or how weak the plot is. BL is what it is just plain fun to read. Made specially for those who like action and crazy killer woman ( if you guys love Revy you should check Bambi and her Pink Gun out!). Anyway there is plenty( tho kind hard to come by) of manga with good plot around there if u want serious and realistic, and one more thing there is no rules on how someone should rate something they like. So give it a rest!

Some people should just go downtown and turn in their manhood.

This manga is great, I mean seriously. I needed an action manga to read while waiting on releases for Evangelion and Hellsing. Chas sounds like he didn't like 300 either.

As I said some guys should just go downtown and remove their manhood. And I'm a girl bigrazz

I'm backing Chas on this of course, most people don't really care about a good plot as long as one is there. As long as they get their deaths, apathy and drama, they'll give anything a 9 or 10 based almost entirely on that. The stale unrealistic plot doesn't seem to matter and this manga brings it full force. I mean, who just lets some business man who acts like jack-ass disrespect them and throw there machine gun in the water without saying a word and then lets him join up with them even though he has no skill and doesn't listen without a second thought?

I gave it a ten to bring BLs avarage score up. And to chas: you should take it less seriosly. Its fiction of course it's going to be unrealistic so looking into it is pretty much pointless. Its a nice manga worth at least a eight
