I'm just going to rewatch it in broadcast considering how I don't remember anything.

Broadcast order has a much better ending.

Broadcast order has a much better ending.

And in opposition, the chronological order doesn't have an ending.

The chronological order exists exclusively to have fans watch it all over again, not because it makes any lick of sense.

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya makes me hate reality so much.

So anyway: Thoughts on the reality bendingness/rule of cool evident in Black Lagoon? Thoughts on Balalaika as a character from a moral stand point? Chang?

I was definitely in full support of Balalaika in the Hanzel and Gretel arc and hoped to see her psychologically twist the kids' minds even more. Although later she became more seemingly antagonistic to Rock and Revy, but it didn't ruin her for me. I actually liked her more in season 2 overall, because (hopefully my memory is right here >_>) she didn't get much development in season 1. In the first arc, I supported her, and in the last arc, I didn't. As for Chang, it's hard to say. His role wasn't that big (I don't even remember his presence after the first arc of season 2). But nonetheless, he was awesome.

I did like season 2 more than season 1, but it was disappointing to see that Dutch and Benny were reduced to very minor roles though.

I have to disagree about being in full support of Balalaika. She's badass and an extremely interesting character, but she's a horribly twisted person. The only thing admirable about her is that she has found her true purpose in life. Chang is almost as bad; the manga reveals a fact about his past that suggests he just gave up (it also might lead to even more awesome references to Chow Yun Fat; I pray for flashbacks).

I asked about the Balalaika thing because in Youtube video comments (yeah, I know), people were saying "**** that old man and his son! ;-;" when he killed Gretel at the end while nothing was said about Balalaika who had a child killed for revenge as opposed to putting them out of their misery and getting money to help a sick loved one. There's some ruby-tinted glasses on some folk if you ask me.

That's true, which only makes me question how twisted I am for actually supporting her. Maybe it's just a matter of protagonist vs. antagonist and I just support whoever is the protagonist (which in the first arc is arguably Balalaika, unless you want to go to the whole sympathy argument for the kids). I did feel bad for both of them when they died though, especially the girl or boy, or...whatever. The one who the dad killed at the end. All in all, that arc in general was the most disturbing one.

One of the most appealing aspects of this show/comic for me are these conflicts of morals.

Also, apparently Third Barrage will be an OVA.
