If this show is a highlight in anime it goes to show what level of work is acceptable by standards today.  it is a subpar cowboy bebop at best.

@jlanzer:
This is an underappreciated series that barely gets the light of day. I don't mean this as a highlight of what anime is but a good example of something a little different. Also, there are plenty of anime far worse than Black Lagoon to talk about "standards". And I find Black Lagoon something variable enought from Cowboy Bebop. Yeah there are similarities in the crew and how they get hired to do things but Lagoon Company is strictly for hire and deals with pretty realistic happenings. Personally (obviously since I wrote this), I find Black Lagoon better than Cowboy Bebop with consideration of characters and action at the very least.

Very well written Guide. It reminds me that I really need to go out and read the manga. Now, if I could only figure out what precisely I did wrong with my guides that made it so they didn't work right for promotion.

@Count_Zero:
Thank you very much. I haven't read any of the manga, actually. I've learned that sometimes it comes down to the subject for users to offer their opinions. I wanted a good reaction from this and I believe I've gotten it...But the main point is to do one on a title you like where you can offer a neutral viewpoint with a good description.

God I love this show! How can you not fall in love with an insane sister of Lara Croft?

I like these beginners guides, i wouldn't have been interested in black lagoon if i hadn't read this. Nice job.

This should be good, since it has most of the basic nutritional needs of anime.

I agree with Animedude -- Beginners Guide are absolutely awesomeness.

Listen, I love me some Black Lagoon, but no way in hell is this a "down to earth anime."  There's no magic or anything, sure, and it has that "gritty realism sensibility," but I mean...I don't want to spoil any cool moments, but this show delights in skirting the edges of plausibility.
