BREAKING: Black Lagoon On Toonami Starting March 22nd
New anime. New anime. New anime? New anime! New anime.
The official Toonami Tumblr has made an announcement that I’m positive some people are going to be extremely excited about: the action anime Black Lagoon created by Rei Hiroe and animated by the legendary, brilliant Madhouse is hitting the block starting March 22nd, replacing Soul Eater which will end the week prior. Revy’s hittin’ up Toonami.
If you’ve never seen it, the show page on the FUNimation Entertainment website lays it all out nicely:
Rokuro Okajima is meek, mundane, and metropolitan. His business trip to South East Asia turns from pleasure cruise to festival of pain when modern pirates board the ship and take him hostage. Revy, Dutch and Benny are merciless, maniacal, and mean. Together, they make up the crew of the Black Lagoon. Making a living in a city where the most villainous of villains make themselves at home isn’t without its risks, but they take on any job available to them. Smuggling guns, drugs, kidnapped children, and stolen goods is all part of a hard days work.
The show has two seasons, both of which are available together in a Blu-ray set from FUNimation. 24 episodes altogether. There are also 5 OVAs (also on sale via FUNimation), though whether or not Toonami will air those as well is unknown. I wouldn’t bet on it, but crazier things have happened.
Say farewell to Soul Eater on March 15th. Say hello to Revy and the gang in Black Lagoon on March 22nd.
Only on Toonami! Where else?
