Roberta, the terrorist-turned-maid that made her appearence in the first season of Black Lagoon, returns in this five-episode OVA series—and this time, all bets are off!

Roberta's benefactor, the patriarch of the Lovelace clan, is murdered during a political rally. The assassin's trail soon leads back to Roanapur—so now she has returned on a mission of vengeance! However, close behind her is the new patriarch, Garcia, as well as Roberta's apprentice (and maid), Fabiola Iglesias. As the body count of Roberta's bloody rampage mounts, forces from within the corrupt island (which includes the Lagoon Company), as well as overseas converge on what threatens to escalate into all-out war!

The third part of Black Lagoon eps. 25 to 29 after three years 5 OVA, 1 eps. every 2 months and a half, i can't imagine how the people watching at that time felt waiting so long for this, and for this big of a story, it should have been longer and better developed for the time they had.

Just a little better than the previous parts, focused on one single story rather than in three, a story with flaws but entertaining in some way, bloody and dark, sad and disgusting at times, this time focused more in Rock and his little change to orchestrate read more

So today I watched Black Lagoon Roberta's Blood Trail, it was good and left me wondering about myself and my own rage. Roberta's Blood Trail is an OVA which takes place directly after the end of Second Barrage.

It tells the tail of the aftermath of a NSA assassination which took out Roberta's master. Now if you have seen the original series you will know that Roberta would have killed everyone in Roanaper if it meant saving her master and his child. With the master dead, she goes after the NSA which have taken up residence in Roanapur for a little while. Garcia and another maid read more

Black Lagoon is among the few anime titles released within the last 9 years I can look back on fondly. While the series on occasion can dip into the ultra fantasy with females appearing to be much stronger than what they should be. I simply cannot ignore the other things that grabs my interest on a high level. One of its main draws for me has been the tonal consistency and mature direction it manages to pull off on occasion. I enjoy its dark humor most of the time, and admire that it doesn't attempt to jam in random and absurd comedic moments simply to read more

The anime takes place after "The Second Barrage" as the lagoon company is faced with a contract to hunt down an old adversary that was skilled enough to hit Revy. Their adversary's name is Roberta. Roberta recently went missing from her master's mansion and the young master came to the lagoon company with the request to find her for the promise a large sum of cold, hard cash.

One of the main reason's people enjoy Black Lagoon is because of the blood-pumping action. The gunfights in "Roberta's Blood Trail" aren't as good as the original Black Lagoon action scenes, but then again they weren't bad action read more

Anime: Hellsing Ultimate
Similar looking, eyes, hair etc. BL:RBT is a lot more cruel than first and second season, it's more like Hellsing, dunno why Revy reminds me of Alucard.

OVA sequels starring dangerous women fighting against multiple enemies. Shin Cutey Honey focuses on a hero fighting for justice while Roberta's Blood Trail is a revenge story.

Anime: Chainsaw Maid
Bloody maids. Hahahahaha. Crrazy and creepy.
Chainsaw Maid is one randomness full of gore. My tummy feels funny. Lol.
Roberta's Blood Trail is a psychological and thought provoking blood-gore. But you gotta watch this one after Black Lagoon's main series.
