All 5 episodes of this Ova (Original Video Animation) go for quality over quantity. Allowing for an extended time of 30+ minutes, the show is able to feel more adult, and have a pacing more familiar to TV audiences. Black Lagoon: Roberta’S Blood Trail, sees a protective maid go mad with vengeance, as she hunts down the military men that responsible for her pain. Meanwhile, The Lagoon Company, a gang of mercenaries, become involved after Roberta’s employer, the young Garcia, and his current maid try and stop Roberta. Although it can be surmised as a tale of revenge, it is also a painful look at the true madness vengeance can drive us to.
Roberta is very much a force of nature.
