An OAV is scheduled to release in 2010? *me so exciteddd*

huamulan03 said...

Wow, you're quick! Thanks for sharing your thoughts about volume 3!

Awww, thanks! Will look out for further Black Lagoon OAV advisories -- in addition to those Atlantis manga that have proven to be elusive.

Anyhoo, now is the time for me to confess that I actually haven't read nor seen Black Lagoon *sweatdrop* I'm guessin' you both weigh in on the "Try it out"? ^^

raven said...

Usually I read another manga first, but this edition's cover is too shiny (*_*) beautiful.

You've read none? O.o
Go, go and try it out XD

Thanks for the recommend, raven-san!
