Black Lagoon: Roberta's Blood Trail

 (2010-2011)

Black Lagoon: Roberta's Blood Trail Blu-ray offers decent video and great audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

A Japanese businessman, captured by modern-day pirates, is written off and left for dead by his company. Tired of the corporate life, he opts to stick with the mercenaries that kidnapped him, becoming part of their gang.

For more about Black Lagoon: Roberta's Blood Trail and the Black Lagoon: Roberta's Blood Trail Blu-ray release, see Black Lagoon: Roberta's Blood Trail Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.



Black Lagoon: Roberta's Blood Trail Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Roberta's Blood Trail cuts a swath of semi-gorgeous destruction on Blu-ray with a problematic 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video presentation. To be clear from the outset, the encode itself doesn't seem to be the problem; that begins with the original Madhouse animation, which sacrifices crispness and clarity in service of style, evocative lighting and cinematic flair, and ends with a series of issues (presumably) inherent to the source, including at-times severe macroblocking and banding. Hardly a shot or scene goes by in which smoke, dust, shower steam, interior walls, night skies, blood sprays and even faces aren't riddled with eyesores. More often than not, the culprit is the digital lighting techniques applied to the animation, but sometimes it simply appears to be the result of a compressed source. FUNimation can't really do much to correct such issues, but each one takes its toll nonetheless. Fortunately, it's not a complete loss. Colors have been preserved nicely, saturation isn't overbearing and, if the animators' intended it to be seen, it's present and accounted for. Black levels are tragically dingy, but that too is an artistic Madhouse choice, and contrast is dull, as it's meant to be. All told, Roberta's Blood Trail isn't nearly as striking as its action, ultraviolence and character designs, and drifts a bit too close to a DVD-esque presentation to wow high definition anime fans.


Black Lagoon: Roberta's Blood Trail Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Roberta's Blood Trail features two lossless audio options: an English dubbed Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround track and an original Japanese-language Dolby TrueHD 2.0 stereo mix. This is a fairly standard practice for FUNimation, and fans will have to continue hoping for the day to come when every anime release offers the best of both worlds in 5.1 surround. Even so, both tracks deliver voices that are clean and clear on the whole, effects that pierce the soundscape with intensity and immediacy, and music that's neatly prioritized with the action. The 5.1 English dub naturally provides the most exciting sonic experience, with fittingly aggressive LFE-supported violence and gunplay, assertive rear speaker activity (limited as it sometimes is), and an immersive soundfield (or rather a soundfield). The voice actors sound a tad detached from it all -- no surprise here -- but anime junkies should be quite used to such trivial shortcomings by now. Ultimately, there isn't a lot of room to complain. There's only room to want more.
