A Tokyo businessman is hung out to dry by his employers and joins a motley crew of deliverymen. Guns, alcohol, and dark comedy meet where doing the job sometimes may brush against the law.

Well, we did get that OVA.

Yeap he's coming out of his hiatus.

This time I hope he goes all out and concludes this series for good.

Of course with a happy ending for Rock & Revy. :awesome:

I can sense some big fight with Balalaika near the end.

Doubt so.

 

Sure there's a wee bit of tension between both sides but there's a mutual respect and tolerance in their relationship and dealings.

It feels to me that wee bit of tension is there to prepare us for the time when Russians actually become enemies to the group. 

 

Though, if that doesn't pass, there's always chance with some showdown with CIA.

Yea that might be a possibility, since Revy still does not know the nun (forgot her name) is actually from CIA.

 

Once it's revealed she will be in deep shit and maybe Revy might help her against her pursuers

Eda from the rip-off church.

 

Not really. She's has ties with the CIA to track down grey fox. Her identity being revealed would only strain ties with the Lagoon company.

No one knows as of yet.

We'll probably hear more from the author as the date draws nearer to his return.

She'll go full tsun-tsun mode. Mark my words. :derp:

/facepalm

 

It's a team led by a major who fought in the Vietnam war.

 

I guess you haven't reached that stage of the anime/manga yet so I wouldn't want to spoil you on this.

 

Remember to watch the OVA too (Roberta's Blood Trail).

The english version is arguably better then the Japanese because most of the characters were written with American speaking styles in mind, so it translates well into English.

Am i the only one who wants a romantic development between Revy and Rock? Normally, i would hate to go down that road in a series like this because it would not fit but in this case it fits perfectly, namely the metaphor of Rock being the bullet for Revy as a gun (i think the metaphor was used that way :lol: ).
