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!

[b]Black Lagoon: Roberta's Blood Trail[/b]
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 read more

The move from that of a televised anime series to an OAV format did its fair share of good for the crew of Black Lagoon. By allowing them to work without worrying about censorship, they could get the violence as visceral and hyper-sexualized as possible and create a no holds bar bloodfest the likes of which anime has rarely had before. Going into this, it should be perfectly evident from the name what you’re in for: A tale of carnage caused by everyone’s favorite former guerilla warfare enthusiast maid, Roberta. And boy does it deliver.

Our tale starts with a public bombing orchestrated by a contracted read more

The quality present in the original Black Lagoon anime series is taken up to a whole extra notch with this no-holds-barred OAV series. What I first thought would be a casual revisiting of a character notable seemingly only for fetish fuel turns into an in depth look into why Roberta earned the name "Bloodhound." Blood has been spilled, and Roberta's out for revenge, and with no television censorship to worry about, this series is free to show Roberta's Blood Trail in all of it's violent glory. The entire crime ring of Roanapur, from the Hong Kong Triad to the Hotel Moscow, to the Italian Mafia read more

Roberta's Blood Trail is a direct sequel to The Second Barrage. I'll try to make this review as much objective as I can because there are a lot of emotions from me.
This OVA is 5 episodes long, which is kind of strange if you take that the source material is 33 chapters long and involve various fractions with their own goals. Although title character, Roberta is not as present as many suggest, but her appearance it's worth the time.

Story: 5

As I'm a fan of Roberta, and I like Black Lagoon, I read all of the released chapters, and although the manga story is not perfect, 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.

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.
