Based on one of Hiroe's tweet a friend of mine translated, Black Lagoon will be ending at vol 11. Hiroe's working on too many projects to continue.

How do you think it'll end? Will Revy or any of the core characters die?

Damn, I mean it's better than going on a 2-3 year hiatus after every few chapter but now I'm kind of worried if this is true. Even though there will be a lot of storyline that will never come to be, I just hope Hiroe gives us a satisfying ending.

maybe they can finally do a final chapter anime.

Please.

Final Chapter? I want the remaining 60 episodes, at least 2 more seasons

Final chapter OVA's like Roberta's Blood Trail would be good enough for me.

Post the translation, user.

Since we're Dutch-fags, friend translated it to Dutch.

"ik wil trouwens mededelen dat door andere projecten ik stop met Black Lagoon. De serie zal eindigen bij een bundel 11 titels"

"Also, I would like to announce that due to other projects I will be stop working on Black Lagoon. The series will stop at 11 volumes".

Are you sure it's not "The sries will stop after 11 more volumes"?

Lucas Harris

I wish. But no.. Friend's Japanese and I trust that he translated it correctly.

Jordan Powell

I don't think he means that. What I understand is that he'll work in something else after volume 11. There might be a volume 12. Right?

Henry Richardson

That's not what the tweet said. He said work on Black Lagoon is going to be put on hold due to another project, but that he's already finished the storyboards for v11, hence the picture.

Whew. BL fans are used to hiatuses, so this isn't bad.

Thanks for clarifying that hox. Would've been really sad had it been ending at 11.

Huh. Guess my friend mistook "On hold" with a more definitive stop.

If its not too much trouble, can you break the sentence down for me? I'm interested in how both he and you arrived at differing translations.

Carson Howard

Japanese wouldn't use the verb 止まる to mean "end" as in "end a series." They would use 終わる. So the stop in this context is referring to a temporary stop.

But more importantly, the second sentence, "ブラクラ自体は11集分のネーム全部上がってるのやで" in no way means "De serie zal eindigen bij een bundel 11 titels." I assume your friend thought 上がる in this context meant finish and then didn't know what "ネーム" meant, so he guessed that it was referring to the series Black Lagoon. However, the verb 上がる is specifically referring to the noun ”ネーム" which means storyboard.

Ending it in Vol 11 would be pretty rushed, would it not?
Don´t know how the Arc from Vol. 10 could escalate into anything "final".

Feng reveals she has a secret robot army she's going to unleash upon the world and Rock sacrifices himself to stop it. As he lay dying, he tells Revy "Live", which causes her to cry after all these years. She then boards a boat and lets the wind decide where she goes, while still crying. The end.

Afterwards, the camera changes to a TV tuning out and Shenhua, Sawyer, and Lotton looking at the screen in confusion, each asking what the hell just happened and commenting how stupid and sudden the ending was.

Adam Nguyen

Yeah, the ”ネーム" tripped him up. Thanks for clarifying!

thats bull! you can read the tweet either as stopping or pauzing! i hope its pauzing

It's nice to hear that it's all still going, even if he's taking a break to draw yaoi

I figured she knew enough English to hold a basic conversation, discuss mission objectives, and threaten people, but nothing beyond that.

That Revy's name for her is chinglish

Doubt BL will ever end, I mean he doesn't have a reason to end it, the fans are used to hiatuses, so he can resume/stop it whenever he wants, and the story is the type which can go on forever i.e. the characters don't have any particular end goal, it's just a group of pirate buddies taking on different jobs and getting in all sorts of trouble while doing them.
I mean all arcs don't have any connections between them except the two Roberta arcs, and even there she has totally two different reason for visiting Roanapur, which are in no connection with each other.

A good reminder to take random single people on the internet who are not fluent in a language posting translations with a grain of salt

gotta always take japanese with a grain of salt. its a vague language

The story is built so that pauses and hiatuses are easy to work around.

Hell, he could end it with a "And the adventure continues..."-style ending, then get back to it 5+ years after that and it would still work.

Kevin Bennett

i bet he continues in like 10 years or so!!

I bet we'll get the Feng arc animated as a way to tide fans over while Rei finishes up other projects before working on volume 12.

What's the boat equivalent of Black Lagoon

Stuck in an internet cafe?

On the phone with a Chinese guy?

Lucas Nelson

I like "stuck in an internet cafe" because the thought of Rock, Revy, and Feng trapped in one and trying increasingly-desperate ways to get out while waiting for the next volume to get released so their story can continue is funny.

Well that's what I'm saying it's basically an episodic anime.

Rock is actually really fucking evil

He has been doing this life-gambling shit from the beginning, and is only figuring it now?

Not really, it was during the japan incident that he really started to become how he is now.

You could consider the fight against the attack chopper his first gamble with lives on the line, but Lagoon Company literally had no other options at that point so it doesn't really count that much compared to the shit he pulled in the Japan arc and the Roberta's rampage arc.

Dylan Ross
Dylan Ross

You could consider the fight against the attack chopper his first gamble with lives on the line
I don't really consider that to be one of his mastermind moments like the shit he pulled off latter, like you said it was pretty much a do or die moment for the BL crew so he didn't really have a choice.

I agree, but I'm just saying some could.
