Roberta News

Roberta is a anime/manga character in the Black Lagoon franchise
| |

Funimation has posted a trailer for the Black Lagoon: Roberta's Blood Trail without a release date yet. The OVA will be released in a DVD/Blu-Ray combo pack.

Plot

Brace yourself for a barrage of hot lead and shorts short in the gun-blazing follow up to the critically-acclaimed Black Lagoon. This tour de violence was inspired by the masters of mayhem John Woo and Quentin Tarantino -- and brought to you by the studio behind Hellsing Ultimate!

The cutthroat crew of Black Lagoon faces their stiffest challenge yet when a Venezuelan assassination sparks a killing spree that spans the globe. Roberta was a reformed assassin until a clandestine clash between politically backed acronyms claimed the life of her master. In flash of a muzzle, she goes from maid to murderer on a pill-popping, crimson stained quest for vengeance. When Revy and the gang are hired to stop Roberta's killing spree, they quickly find themselves in the middle of an international shootout starring everyone from the KGB to the CIA. The bullets are flying, the bodies are piling up in the street, and Roberta's painting the town red -- with blood.

Now you can play with your toys to kill your friends for fun.

--

Playing with or against friends online is one of the major appeals in online gaming to me. I personally play tons of UNCHARTED 3's multiplayer, both Competitive and Co-op. It's a great little time killer. I've never really been into the MMO world on my PC, but I found something while browsing some Japanese sites that really got my attention. A rather popular MMO Third-Person Shooter game called Toy Wars in Japan (MicroVolts in Europe & U.S. / H.A.V.E. in Korea) added four members of the cast of Rei Hiroe's BLACK LAGOON to their list of player models back in early March of this year.

From the trailer, Toy Wars adds living figures of Revy, Roberta, Balalaika, and Shenhua to the roster. The attention to detail is impressive. Roberta uses her classic modified SPAS-12 shotgun that doubles as a shield, but Revy is using a grenade launcher in place of her Sword Cutlass. I only wish they also had an El Baile de La Muerte version of Roberta. You may actually be surprised how many MMOs are made that have anime characters as guest stars. The free to play Korean-made golf MMO Pangya offered costume sets for certain characters that made them look like Lelouch Lamperouge (Zero/Emperor), C.C., Kallen Kozuki, Suzaku Kururugi, and Anya Alstreim, Holo, and Craft Lawrence. Toy Wars even had figures from SUZUMIYA HARUHI and STRIKE WITCHES as an option at one time.

You can see the trailer of these ladies in action below.

If you're at all curious about this game. Check out the gameplay trailer I've posted below. What catches my attention is the impressive level of detail in character customization. I've tried to see if the European MicroVolts version of the game had these BLACK LAGOON models as an option, but I think you can only get these figures by downloading the Japanese version. A search of the forums on the MicroVolts' website led me to a posting that gives detailed tips on how to download this version. The game is pretty popular among the MMO enthusiasts. It's won accolades for MMOSite’s Reader’s Choice Awards in 2010 and MMOGames' Editor's Choice in April 2011.

Here I am with another special AMV to share with you all. I discovered this years ago and I really loved it. I'm a fan of Black Lagoon. I was heartbroken when I heard VIZ was publishing the manga. If they thought smoking was too controversial for Naruto. I hate to image what they changed in Black Lagoon. Especially when it came to those vampire twins.
 

Black Lagoon - Roberta

The song is "Millionaire" by Queens Of The Stone Age. This AMV about Black Lagoon's Roberta is an awesome bit of editing. it would be great if the person who originally made this would make a HD version. Watching this is a good example as to why you should give this series a try.

To celebrate the return of Roberta in the upcoming Black Lagoon OAV, thought I'd make a "5 Second" clip of Black Lagoon featuring her. Enjoy!
