Black Lagoon fans rejoice! Mangka of the guns-blazing series, Hiroe Rei, has announced that he will resume the Black Lagoon manga sometime in January or February. It will be returning in Shogakukan’s Sunday GX magazine. The series has been on hiatus since mid-2010.
As to whether this may lead to more of the anime, that is up for debate. It will depend on the reception of the returning manga in terms of sales of the magazine and the tankobon (chapter compilation) books. I know I certainly want more Black Lagoon. Especially after the glorious Roberta’s Blood Trail OVA story arc.
