    BLACK LAGOON



    Spoiler: other covers


    Mangaka: Rei Hiroe
    Genre: Action, Drama, Psychological
    Status: 7 Volumes and On Going (Monthly)
    Serialization: Sunday GX (Same as Shin Angyo Onshi)
    Anime Info: Anime starts from volume 1 to volume 5.

    Probably the best action series set in modern day, with loads of guns and explosions, Black Lagoon is just too good! From the Russian Mafia, to a killer maid, to Romanian vampire twins, to a samurai-wielding yakuza, to old Nazi survivors, to the chinese triad, to gun totting nuns--this series packs a huge variety where a lot of intense action takes place among well written scenarios in every arc.

    And the art is just as awesome. Aside from all the action, the story has really good drama, sometimes philosopical, comedic, or just too damn suspenseful. It's very well written and definitely goes to my top list of favorite mangas. There, I don't think I can praise this manga anymore than i already have :laugh (I actually can but that'd be too much, lol)
    ----------------------------------------

    Edit: All of the available volumes are now scanlated. No gaps what soever.

    Spoiler: DDL
    DDL:
    Volume 1 - DDL

    Read Online:
    kill Kakashi

    If you want the rest of the volumes, i can get them up, or you can just head over to mangatraders or lurk.

    My sig is also from this series. :laugh

    yeah seriously. :laugh

    I know right, he starts from wuss to badass. okay, maybe not as badass as the other characters, but he's damn cool. and earlier than most mangas at that.

    that scene with him and revy was where it started. :laugh

    yep, they started with volume 6 where the anime left.

    watch the anime then, it covers volume 1 to 5 in complete detail. it's also one of the best adaptations there is.

    also note that volume 6 and 7 are scanlated. (they skipped 4 and 5 because the anime already covered it)

    If I'm not mistaken, volume 4 has been scanlated by Anonymous Spore and volume 3 is being done by I-Manga. Anonymous Spore also did 6 and 7.

    Can someone tell me which episodes cover volume 5?

    Can't decide on whether I should wait for the Manga scanlation or watch the anime. From what I've seen on wikipedia, some things were changed between the two.

    ^just watch the entire anime series, you won't regret it.

    besides, some arcs are jumbled, like one event happened sooner or later than the other. :p

    I probably will. A bit annoyed though. I had already downloaded the entire Anime series, but then I ran into your sig and found out that Black lagoon was originally a Manga. Deleted the anime and went to reading only to find out this :p

    A bit late on 5 being done. Only 4 eps to go before I finish the Anime. Am I missing something or is Volume 3 still undone. I can't find 2 of the chapters(19 and 20).

    Second season >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>First season, no joke.

    Also, does anyone know why the author suddenly changed Revy from how she looked in the first chapter to how she looks now?

    I think the first chapter (which is labeled as chapter 0) was actually a one-shot. So maybe back then, that was the mangaka's early design of revy? and later decided to give her a pony tail in the final version.

    He should've stuck with the first design imo, she looked hotter that way.

    yep, not yet. Black Lagoon runs monthly and each tankoubon (volume) consists of 9 chapters. Means it takes 9 months for a new volume to come out.

    Sad but true. :(

    Really...:cry

    However, on this website they are up to chap 62.

    Link removed

    The English translation stops at 55. So, how come nobody has nobody has translated those 7 chapters, if they come out in volumes every 9 months?

    Popularity. Black Lagoon isn't as popular as some series, so no scanlator will take the time to do it. Sad, but true. The group that scanlated volumes 3 to 7 hope that someone will come in and do the rest plus do it monthly since they've bridged the gap pretty much.

    well, yeah. That, and it's a bit hard to find the magazine raws. technically, we can have this manga monthly if there are scanners who will scan each chapter every month. but they seem to prefer to scan with one whole volume, when it comes out.

    However! I remember raw-paradise uploading each chapter monthly... a long time ago (when there are barely any scanlations). so if they still scan it monthly, which i dont think they do anymore, then maybe we can nag a few scanlators to pick up the title.

    Or nag raw-paradise first to scan the chapters.
