Great episode. I loved all of the references they made, especially when you could relate scene after scene to terminator. She acted completely like Robert Patrick in terminator 2. (Robert = Roberta?) I got a lot of laughs from this one, she's a great character.

Best episode by far for me. I loved all the action and it felt like I was watching Halloween.

The title of this episode was "Maid to Kill" ... surely that pun doesn't work in Japanese...

Overall, good action episode. Just a little ridiculous though.

Great action packed episode, it was like watching an actual action movie.
I don't understand how she got onto the roof, with a car that has a broken radiator, but I'll let that slide.

Okay, wtf?? She got on the rooftop then she crashed into them (flying down from the roof) and then crashed upside down into the store-window. No killer robot can do that!

Walking out of the flames was sure one big reference, but I'd never thought they'll mention Schwarzenegger

she really is like a terminator, she can't be stopped that easily, how the heck did she get that busted up car on the rooftops anyways!!???

I'm guessing that if the topography of that area is at all similar to central or south america, then it must be really hilly in that city with roads that edge up real close to a dropoff.

if that were that case she could've done some rooftop hopping from an elevated road.

Or you can take the episode as it was, a showcase for how outrageously exaggerated her badassery was. I dug it, made me lol a bit.

I lol'd @ Terminator scenes. This episode was madness! Loved how it all ressembles Terminator 2. xD

Roberta = T-1000

Haha, wow. Holy shit, and I thought Lagoon was badass. That killer robot maid is stronger than them. Love this episode. Best so far, I liked the part where she fought with her umbrella and twirled around. So swift and elegant yet destructive.

Damn, that was pretty cool, a bit exaggerated as there was no way she run up to a car speeding away at full throttle blown tire or not. But still cool, she might wanna be smarter tho, she coulda killed the kid in that car wreck she made, wrh?! I cant wait for Revy to wake up.

Holy Hand Grenades! I've never since an anime with such good action until this ep.
Highlight for me was on the highway when she first attacks with her beemer, never since action animation that FLUID!
And when the car finally flips and she is still shooting in mid air right before she crashes into a windows, the creator is a genius! Definably a favorite character for me.

I thought that she stole another car and jumped it onto a roof, considering the hills in that place.

I don't like the fact Roberta quite literally seems to be indestructible, would have been better if she was just super badass like Revy, as oppose to super un-killable.

Roberta shot those gangsters by surprise but when those gangsters can shot at her by surprise, they have to talk before which kills all the surprise.
Kind of wtf episode, I liked the action scenes, even though they were completely unrealistic.
Revy's down and Benny said that she had superficial wounds? Kind of hard to believe, especially after being bombed. It feels more like a stereotypical way to get rid of her temporarily, to devellop the others characters. They could use a better excuse.

Don't you realize that adding exagerated characters like Roberta ruins the show? :/

First the super boat jump and now roberta. I thought this anime wanted to not defy laws of physics. -.-

Best episode so far, and it looks like lagoon's in trouble for the first time, but reinforcements sure can deal with Roberta

She had better be a fucking robot, because otherwise, nothing she has done so far makes sense. And even then, no scratch as she emerged from the bar inferno? Not so much as singed clothing. Ugh.

I advice you to go watch more anime if this kind of thing surprises you.

Car Chase 101 : Featuring Roberta as the instructor.

Oh and 'just getting a concussion' from getting hit by a rocket/grenade that landed less than a foot from you, is kinda amazing, even if it might have been a 'small rocket/grenade'

Okay, Benny-boy was right, she is a robot from the future... Roberta could give T-1000 a run for his money...

This episode gets a 10/10 for excitement value alone! However it's too unrealistic to let some scenes pass!

Holy shit, she isn't bulletproof, she DEATHPROOF.

Seems like Balalaika is sending half the Russian Army after her. Oh boy, I definitely want to see that.

Yet I will not back down, and though fear may place it's stranglehold on my heart, courage will see me through. With tears in my eyes, I hit full throttle. My engines become an inferno, and my weapons light up, awaiting my command.

If I die tonight, I will do so fighting for everything I believe in."

Love the homages to Terminator and Desperado.

Roberta makes Revy seem like a little girl.

This is your roberta

Also, I can't decide whether the director is aiming for ridiculous unrealistic action or using this over-the-top-action for the sake of humour and referrences

man Revy got knocked out O_____O

yeah the gang members just standing there getting hit, then when it's time to shoot her they charge at her first lol

they could have made this like the last episode where they just keep firing and she just shooting the hell out of them

the grenades falling of her skirt is one of the best!!!!!!!!

wahhh the bar is gone :O

Balalaika is worry about this, she's sending her army in!!!!

i guess they owe Dutch on this on :P

i think Roberta is a killing machine. codename "Bloodhound"

she definitely lives up to the name.

and the car chasing is amazing, Roberta is just non-stop, Dutch could even detain her if not for shooting the car to slow her down

a little over the top, but if they had fix some of the faults i think the over the topness would have been more fitting.

still amazing nevertheless :P

can't wait for Roberta vs Revy :D

I thought the same as Rock comparing the killer maid with the Terminator.

Poor Barman. if lagoon company arrives, he loses the bar.

Finally someone that could beat revy, hope she is alright.
