How's it going my gumdrops? So far, things have been going a little better for me at the moment. You have no idea how relieved I feel. I am actually in more of a "zen" mood. Nothing or no one has been wreaking havoc on and offline, which is fantastic. However, I am slightly worried about the shoe dropping, which means I have to live up this current energy while I still can.
I forgot to mention yesterday, that my spirits were slightly lifted on April Fool's Day. Even though I was still distressed during last week, an Adult Swim Helper's inboxed me on Adult Swim's forum. He/she informed me about the Black Lagoon section being decorated. It actually lifted my spirits. The Adult Swim Helpers helped decorate most of the site with different background sceneries. I didn't have the chance to see every section because there was so much happening on and offline. Although, I managed to see the background scenery for Black Lagoon.
There was a picture of an unconscious Revy from being knocked out after brawling with Roberta. The background scenery had designs of Roberta with her sinister grin. The scenery definitely put a smile on my face. It's like I've said on facebook, Adult Swim, and on here, I am Team Roberta all the way.
Her Columbian maid persona is only a cover. "Roberta," who was originally known as Rosarita Cisneros, happened to be a former FARC guerrilla trained as an assassin in Cuba. That's not including being an internationally wanted criminal. When I was on Adult Swim last Thursday, I loved that the moderators and Swim Helpers changed our usernames outside of our threads.
"Fucking Glasses Bitch" was used as some of our usernames and some other references to Roberta. Roberta has several nicknames. Balalaika would typically refer to her as "hardcore terrorist." Revy either refers to Roberta as "Fucking Four Eyes," or "That Fucking Glasses Bitch." LMAO!
I'm so glad that Roberta became a recurring Black Lagoon character. Watching Roberta kick everybody's ass including Revy's was great. I really hate that the Mangaka downplayed the character so that Revy wouldn't be upstaged by her.
Since the beginning of Black Lagoon, I never liked Revy. When I originally started watching the series, before its premiere on Adult Swim last year, I kept saying, "I hope somebody kicks Revy's ass." Low and behold, Roberta appears.
In fact, Roberta even has a 5-episode OVA specifically about her. I was disappointed towards the end of the 5th OVA. The creator just wanted Revy to upstage the main protagonist (Rock) and my Roberta. I'm still Team Roberta.
Actually, I'm Team whoever as long as it's not Revy. Revy is about as obnoxious as Sasuke Uchiha from the Naruto franchise because Black Lagoon is too centered on Revy as a character much like Naruto is too centered around Sasuke. Those are the eternal victims in everything yet they upstage the main characters of Naruto and Black Lagoon.
With that being said, I have a fight scene from Black Lagoon: Episode 10 for today's Cartoon Sunday. It's between Revy and Roberta.
