yeah, one of the best animes I've seen for a long time. It's been nearly 2 years now that the OVAs have ended, is there anything new?

This arc was amazing in the manga, and since it's gonna be and OVA the quality probably will be top-notch! Can't wait to start translating it!

Ya I can't wait for this to come out but people if you want to support Black Lagoon and give someone a reason to dub the new stuff in English then you really need to purchase the DVD's. You can currently get the first 2 seasons with extras for only $40. You can purchase it from the official website http://www.funimation.com/blacklagoon/
Also I highly recommend anyone to read this article "Why You're KILLING ANIME" an interesting Article from Toonzone forums! http://www.toonzone.net/blog/blogs/228/why-youre-killing-anime/

Can't wait for the BL OVA!

i dont have any problem with it being an ova, and if you look on the bright side, the animation will probably be even better than the other series. plus, no point creating a whole new 12 episode season for one arc. the manga has pretty much just started moving into another arc so its either a) take the ova or b) wait another who knows how long for a true 12 episode season. and considering the manga is published MONTHLY you guess how long it will take to for them to announce a new season. ya ova is looking pretty good now huh.

as for bluray, since i can get the dvd for both seasons without having to order online, ill just stick with that.

Awesome! I'll definitely get those Blu-ray releases ^^

Lets hope the third is as cool as the first two seasons :>

Thats great news and the release date was actually a bit earlier than I was dreading it might be. I wonder how long each volume is going to be but I suppose 5 volumes is enough to cover the arch.
