Yup there's no doubt now the final episode will conclude the manga itself.

 

Gonna miss this series.

 

O well at least Black Lagoon is resuming. :3

It would be interesting to see a crossover between Jormungand and Black Lagoon, eh? Of course, everyone will be significantly younger. Perhaps with Floyd or Kasper?

Rather not have Jormungand screwed up to place it in Black Lagoon. I like Jormungand far more then I did the Black Lagoon anime. Better story and characters.

Why would everyone be significantly younger if a crossover did happen?

Black Lagoon takes places in the nineties and Jormungand takes places in the 2000s.

Thanks. ^_^

Agh, I didn't realize until reading this thread that Jormungand would be ending so soon!  I'll definitely miss it.  Is Black Lagoon worth watching?  I've thought about trying it out.

Im interested in getting involved in this series, but really? Jonah hates Arms Dealers because of the Arms Dealer who killed his parents? xD What a convenient plot element.

He is a child. It's a simplistic way of thinking, mate.

Im not saying that the child is being silly, Im sayings its a convenient plot element. Hating Arms Dealers because an Arms Dealer killed your parents seems...oddly specific, and convenient in that it creates an interesting dynamic between the two main characters.

 

Its like...if a man who killed your parents just so happened to be a bank robber, it wouldn't make you hate bank robbers, it would just make you hate criminals in general wouldn't it?

I dont know. Just seems oddly specific and convenient to me, but maybe im missing something that the anime/manga provides.

Not sure what you really mean here.

 

The death of Jonah's parents were an indirect cause of Kasper's doing and from there on Jonah had a deal with him in exchange for the lives of some orphans.

 

That is where he was transferred under Koko's care.



Oh I remember that, ha ha. That was lovely.

Indeed.

 

That was drawn by the author of BL btw.

 

I miss Revy. :(

I'm surprised that he was able to draw Koko so well.

Oops. Looks like I was mistaken LOL.

 

Take a look at the first page.

 

Presented by '高橋慶太郎'.

 

So I guess this could be a collaborative chapter between both authors.

Well I'm sure a dislike for criminals in general would exist but I'm sure the dislike for bankrobbers would be worse.

 

Jonah didn't have a very good first impression with arms dealers and then he is more or less blackmailed into working for another arms dealer.  It's not like he just hates them he'd rather not be running around being a child soldier.  It's just when in that situation and asked how he feels he's not going to say he hates war he's going to tell the arm dealer that he hates arm dealers.  It's not that big of an issue and more just serves as an interesting hook at the start and is more developed later.

 

It's worth giving it the benefit of the doubt and giving it a chance.

These last few episodes have jumped this series up into one of the best of the year...Damn..can't wait to see how it ends.

 

Edit: A collaborative BL/Jormungand crossover is epic....Having it reference team america makes it legendary.
