    Last time... I'm not gonna talk about last time.

    THIS WEEK: Back to the good ol days!


    "A fugitive counterfeiter named Jane arrives at the Church of Violence, hoping to find shelter. When the bullets start flying, prayer probably won't help -- but Revy and Eda might."

    And here comes part one, of three, of one of the most fun, action story arcs of Black Lagoon. This is the story arc where you just set back, relax, and enjoy enjoy the show.


    Now, here is something that most people miss about this episode. One of two injokes, the Black Lagoon series has another beloved anime series, that most people miss.


    So, here is the question, what character uses a variation, not the exact model, of the model pistol that Revy suggests, during her conversation with Eda, as the beginning of the episode?

    For those that to spoiler themselves, here is the answer.


    Just something to think about, while you are watching the Black Lagoon series.

    Relax. After the first two minutes of the episode, this becomes a fun episode.

    On a side note, since a picture of Jane is posted at the top. If you are wondering, from the Black Lagoon swimsuit magazine has a which female characters breasts were biggest, to smallest. Jane has the largest breasts in the series. Roberta is second in that list.

    And Revy is way.... down that list.

    I think he means that he's not interested in seeing the comments in this thread because the reception to the series on this board and in these talkbacks have been surprisingly negative, and last week's was overwhelmingly so.

    Greenback Jane is a fun arc, though. I'd be really surprised if people don't like it overall, though I would understand people think Jane is a somewhat annoying character herself.

    Personally, I like Jane. She was only annoying because she was desperate for help. And Jane is a nice contrast to the other female characters of the series. She is genuinely nice and pleasant to be around.

    So can we start liking anybody on this show yet? Or would that take away the "edge" that makes this "adult"?

    Don't worry. After the Hansel and Gretel arc, these next three episodes are a much-needed breather.

    Soooooooo, there was poll in Japan for most popular Black Lagoon character to celebrate the 10th volume of the manga being released. And what a coincidence, Gretel is #1! Also along with most popular character, there was a poll for favorite episode.

    Last time: Yeah, we don't need to go through what happened last time. Your stomach will thank you for it.

    This time: A shootout at the church, and a new story arc begins with a runaway counterfeiter.

    One glaring animation error in this episode: Revy's hair is tied back at the start of the scene, and then in the next frame, her hair is down.

    Okay, what's up with the forums? Are we only getting ten posts per page now?

    Hello, Sango.

    Yeah, like THAT will improve worker morale.

    Revy turned her bedroom into a 9mm pincushion.

    And look at who the new blond girl just walked passed.

    Jane's not the only one feeling the heat.

    Consider this her resignation.

    The $1,000,000 question.

    This is gonna be fun...

    Tidy Whiteys.

    Yeah, Eda, I'm pretty sure none of that was actually in the Bible.

    Bad move, boys.

    Never mess with Revy's drink.

    Some translations call the Ripoff Church, the Church of Violence for a reason.

    "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee."
    --Ezekiel 25:17, New Tarantino Version

    Mother Superior jumped the gun.
