    The August issue of Shogakukan's Monthly Sunday GX magazine will confirm on Saturday that the third Black Lagoon anime project will be an original video anime (OVA) project in 2010. Director Sunao Katabuchi will return from the first two Black Lagoon anime projects, along with character designer Masanori Shino and the Madhouse anime studio. Megumi Toyoguchi will reprise her role as the female pirate Revy. The story revolves around a typical Japanese businessman who gets caught up in the escapades of modern-day pirate mercenaries off the Asian shores.

    Viz Media will publish the seventh volume of Rei Hiroe's original adventure manga next month. Geneon Entertainment released part of the Black Lagoon anime in North America, but Funimation has since agreed to take over distribution of the anime. Funimation reissued the first anime series and started the DVD release of the Black Lagoon: The Second Barrage series last August.

    The first two anime series will be re-issued on Blu-ray Disc in full high-definition. The Blu-ray Discs' original special video supplements will feature the anime adaptations of omake extra manga shorts from the end of the manga's compiled book volumes.

    This show needs a full season, not this OVA bullshit. That's just enough to tease us or they'll try to squeeze too much story into a movie length release.

    I would rather see the extra money they put into fancier animation used to tell a story properly instead. This is not one of those shows that wraps everything up in 22 minutes. They do arcs.

    I can only hope they're doing this to gauge interest. Other than that, we're pretty much ass out.

    In all fairness, the El Baile De La Muerte arc pretty much just ended, and that's been the *only* story arc since Greenback Jane.


    But goddamn, only 5 OVAs? fuck



    edit: just realized I never saw the english dubs of the first two seasons, anyone have a torrent for them?

    Fuck, I'll take whatever I can get at this point. This anime is nearly on the same plane as Cowboy Bebop.

    5 volumes? But how long are they? If they're a 1/2 hour each it'll be fucked.
