Hmm i don't know i enjoyed this quite a lot. I've always enjoyed the fucked up side of things though.

OP still rules. I also love how the ending music starts in this anime, closes off the show so well.

I actually don't really have a problem with the twins.
Except for the fact that that little girl would not have been able to fire that gun...
Otherwise they really don't bother me.

actually I also want to comment on an earlier post about gunslinger girl.
Those children were awful because they were devoid of feeling.
The Twins are more natural because at least they are doing it
for themselves instead of taking orders.
That is the difference for me

I actually really enjoyed this ep. The creepy, screwed up twins makes for a decent arc.

Those kids creep the f*** out of me! I'm a little disappointed about the whole vampire thing because they seem to be in everything, but I still love Black Lagoon.

To people who thought that Black Lagoon was realistic:



Seriously, I never saw anything in this series that would show that author cares about realism. The only thing the mangaka seem to care is badasness and action. The "Vampire Twins" fit the story perfectly.

Awesome creepy kids. I don't personally understand the big fuss over the kids, It's only an anime, you must've seen waaaaaaay worse things in reality surely? This isn't an anime intended for 10 year olds so I don't mind it being a bit more risque at times.

But hey, like people have said before, that's you opinion and you are entitled to it.

I find it amusing to see a kid with a m249 saw when a kid that age wouldn't even be able to handle the recoil on a barret pistol or such...

10 year old girl firing a m249 from the hip... >.> oh dear children oh dear.. Child would be knocked off her feet from the first round

There is literally nothing I hate more in anime than this shitty archetype of "an insane shota and loli who are also incestuous and invincible". Nothing. I hope they get killed in the most brutal way possible without any censors or I'm gonna have to think about dropping this shit right here.

BAR rifles weight atleast 20 kg, so using them that like means they're strong enough to atleast stay standing.

First Nazis, now vampires. Hellsing anyone?

Those kids sure are creepy, I'll give it the benefit of the doubt and see where all this leads to.

One things that's still great about this series, is the huge amount of nationalities seen (there's no good or bad here, so it works even better) and the lot of references to American movies in general, It's always amusing spotting those out.

If these kids really turn out to be vampires, I'm dropping this, no matter how much I enjoyed and loved first season. Invincible vampire kids are both annoying and cliché, I can have that in any other anime.

Love how the Russian mobsters scare the crap out of everyone.

Vampires?

Balalaika looks furious as ever O____O

yay Eda!!!!

didn't notice her boosoms are big as that :D

i wonder how the Lagoon group will solve this.

what's up with the fucking haters lately??

the show is not trying to be realistic, even though it still tries to maintain a link to the real world.

plus it's only anime, what's up with the constant bitching about small details all of a sudden??

yet i rarely see any those complaints like Naruto, Bleach, and other anime's

oh what's that?? it's not trying to be realistic??

YOU DON"T SAY???? :O

for me while the kids are freaking creep, it didn't bother me at all.

sure there fucked up and sadistic, but it nothing cringe worthy like some people love act like it.

the laugh while irritating, is definitely freaking scary as hell.

also that english song, while having accent, is cool to hear.

the brother and sister singing sadistically as they poke the hell out of that person is just wow.

then again after finishing watching Shiki especially Ep 14, it's hard to cringe at other gory anime's now :\

still it's definitely interesting to see Vampires(??) in this anime.

guess we have Gang lords, Mafia, Nazi's, Nuns, Strippers, Maid's and now Vampires.

we just need Ghost and Goblins ha :P

I liked this ep a lot.

the twins are creepy and very interesting for the series, i dont know why people were hating them for being vampires (they could be fake vampires, not the fictional ones).

Black lagoon wasn't made to be realistic, The loveless maid, shows it.

Dont compare lagoon with the reality, just because little twins appeared to be sadic an crazy.

Nice to see Eda tbh and that new personality of hers fits her much better.

And those...two twins reminds me of the same twins from Season 1 of Shakugan no Shana as in creepy as fuck.

I think the question we're looking for here is what exactly made them fucked up? Totally agree with the others that were reminded of the twins from Shana.

I really hope those kids aren't vampires, or else my rating for this show will drop.

The whole mafia scene of Roanapur is pretty interesting though; I hope the different gangs (of different nationalities) will have a bigger role in this season.

Looking at how good first series were, this is ridiculous. Russian mafia can't take care of 2 brats. And that girl using a gun 2x her size? Sure.

Hey, let's forget that maid that was apparently immortal! I think after that all bets were off. Ridiculous and Black Lagoon go hand in hand, let's also not forget the flying the boat into the helicopter in the first arc. Anyway, from a storytelling perspective this is one of the better arcs.

Yeah, you are probably right. The terminator maid was beyond ridiculous. And the boat jump was slightly unreal.

I love the design of the twins, white hair, black clothes, when she pulled out the light machine gun for the first time that was screencap moment. Don't mind the incest and the gore, more fun!
I don't expect realism from this anime since the first episode, don't know how people thought it was the direction it was going.

Their behaviour fits the Shakugan no Shan twins, but the look resembles the ones from Yosuga no Sora more. Both didn't end all that happy.

And funny how Romanian = vampires. I wonder whether the creators picked that up somewhere when looking for ideas, or if that - How do you even call it? It's not exactly prejudice, neither really misconception - if it is that wide spread that it's common "knowledge" even in Japan.

the most weird part of the episode was the child twin incest moment. Besides that thisi is pretty normal for anime.Also I dont see why people are mad that a child can carry a gun that big its anime people if this was real the main cast would have been dead long ago.Also seems revy is marking her territory.
