Crime never sleeps in Roanapur, and neither does Roberta—a devoted maid and skilled guerilla soldier in service to the Venezuelan Lovelace family. After the assassination of her superior by the US Secret Service, Roberta returns to the city of debauchery in search of vengeance and his killer's head.

Meanwhile, young Fernando Garcia Lovelace, the new heir to his father's estate, tails Roberta to Thailand alongside his bodyguard, Fabiola Iglesias. He enlists the help of the Lagoon Company, with the objective of deterring Roberta's warpath and bringing her back to the family. However, with the continued bloodshed and mounting tensions between Roberta, island crime factions, and the US military, it will take a significant amount of strategy—and weaponry—to stop her relentless quest for revenge.

God damn I forgot how badass Black Lagoon is. The first two seasons were thoroughly enjoyable, and Roberta's Blood Trail doesn't disappoint.

First of all let's talk about the music. It is excellent. Properly scene accompanying music, in particular, the solo drums that pounds through the action sequences that are as perfect as ever. The music throughout is well balanced against the action, doesn't over stay it's welcome and doesn't invade the moment. Even the intro and outro music is good. We all know this is a rarity.

The animation is great. It's grimey, it's dirty and continues to convey the darkness that surrounds ...

Mixed Feelings
Notice: This review covers all three installments of the franchise. No reason to make different reviews about the same thing.

In a nutshell: A distillation of every bad or semi-competent Hollywood action flick cranked up to eleven, interspersed with some light philosophy, homage to other media (war films, Yakuza films) and some mature subjects like terrorism and child abuse. It got a cast like a Tarantino film, actually strong and competent female characters who don’t break down and need the male shoulder to cry on, and its tone and content is both over-the-top hilarious and at the same time features moments more mature than ten dozen ...

"Spoiler" alert including allusions to sexually graphic content

What a hugely disappointing finale to what was a very enjoyable series on a generally downward trajectory throughout the second series.

The story does little of note, spinning its wheels in a desperate attempt to build some kind of intrigue but fails to do that through janky pacing and character arcs that in no way dovetail into anything with a working structure.

The art and sound are the strongest points of "Roberta's Blood Trail" in large part because they are mostly in keeping with what came before: crisp, often dark and brooding but not overbearingly so, interspersed with colourful wide-angle ...
