Rokuro Okajima is meek, mundane and metropolitan. His business trip to South East Asia turns from pleasure cruise to festival of pain when modern day pirates board the ship and take him hostage. Revy, Dutch and Benny are merciless, maniacal and mean. Together, they make up the crew of the Black Lagoon. They are the exact opposite of Rokuro in every way but one. A mercenary group has targeted them to steal the data disc that Rokuro had, and with it classified information that threatens the peace and security of the entire world! Amen, hallelujah, peanut butter!!
