Good morning loyal Painkillers, and welcome to another addition of Anime Wednesday. Today I have a good one for you guys. Who doesn’t love a good adventure on the high seas? Well this anime gives you that and much more. So then, let’s get into it. Here is Black Lagoon.
The story takes place in the mid 1990s, and follows a team of pirate mercenaries, known as the Lagoon Company. They do jobs and smuggle goods around the seas of Southeast Asia. The island which the team they operate from is full of bad guys. Almost everyone on the island is either some petty pickpocket or gunman to people that are connected to the Yakuza, the Triad, the Cartel, and the Russian and Italian mafia.
The Lagoon Company uses a 80 foot boat named Black Lagoon, that they use to transport goods for various clients, especially the Russians, since they have a good relationship with them. Besides smuggling goods, the team will take on various jobs such as boat battles, firefights, and close combat missions.
This show is fun to watch. Its two seasons long with each season having 12 episodes. The first season focusses on the relationships between the crew members of the Black Lagoon, while the second season is focused more on the missions the crew takes on. At the time that I’m writing this it is on Hulu, or you can own the series by getting it here. Either way sit back and enjoy. Until next time Painkillers!
