Revy And Rock’s Argument (Black Lagoon Episode 7)
Welcome to Anime Rants, my friends. Black Lagoon is a thrilling, thought-provoking, and entertaining anime series I recommend to every adult anime fan. For this post, I will look at the heated argument between Revy and Rock at the outdoor restaurant in episode 7. First, some background information will be revealed. Then, the events and main points of the altercation will be explained. Here goes. For context, Rock is young man who only very recently joined the mercenary group Black Lagoon.
In contrast, Revy is violent, short-tempered, and bossy. The dealer whom he spoke to was impressed by his wits and logic, and she told Revy to learn from him. This did not sit well with Revy. She feels she needs to be dominant over Rock. This event made Revy numb to having to kill, and careless about corpses. She threatened to kill Rock if he ever brought this up again. So then, here are Rock and Revy sitting outdoors at a restaurant for a meal.
While Rock seems satisfied, and even confident, Revy refuses to eat. She keeps up insulting and demeaning him until Rock says that he no longer intends to apologize to Revy as he has in the past. When Revy dares him to speak up again, Rock stands up, raises his voice, and restates his position very clearly. He will not keep bowing his head to Revy. Revy responds by deciding to kill Rock, pointing a gun at his head. She fires, but not before Rock grabbed the gun and jerked it enough to point upwards.
He manages to wrench the gun away and it flies over onto the ground. Rock proceeds to grab Revy by the collars and shout and shout at her. She glares hatefully as Rock does his fair share of insulting the woman for being opportunistic, violent, arrogant, and having no pride.
She justifies herself using the argument that she has suffered like Rock never has and that is certainly true, but not an excuse for attempted murder. Countering, Rock says everyone encounters suffering in their lives, and Revy is a coward if she cannot acknowledge it. There is no need for honor or greater values in a world so dark and corrupt. She states that there is no Robin Hood in a world like this. Rock states that killing him now would only prove his point about violence.
While holding back her fist, Rock lowers his voice but not its ferocity. He explains that he also suffered in his life in Japan, forced to obey corrupt bosses and grovel for them. The one who taught Rock to think for himself and stop submitting, in the first place, was Revy.
Hearing this, Revy finally begins to simmer down somewhat. The murderous light in her eyes is gone as she calls Rock an idiot and enters a brief, childish argument with him over who is the idiot. At that moment, the two are interrupted by police, who were called to the scene by frightened customers. On the way to the police station in the back of the car, Revy asks a question. The meaning of this question and its answer will be discussed soon.
Nowhere else. They have a brief moment as their faces are close, and it solidifies that things are now alright between them. I think it symbolizes that they are now equals. This is where the episode ends. This interaction tells us a lot about the characters, although some of it was obvious in previous episodes.
As for the young man, he is now confident enough to speak his mind with Revy. We see that he is more rational than Revy as well. The show does a good job using this scene to contrast the two characters. However, it also compares them. They have both led hard lives where they were miserable. The argument scene also reveals that Revy is surprisingly insecure and, in some ways, helpless.
Because of her background and experiences, Revy is used to using intimidation and violence to solve issues or get what is needed. She has survival skills and fighting prowess. However, that can only take her so far.
Revy has no idea how to interact normally with anyone. It may never be. One must wonder if she is able to find any enjoyment in life outside of danger and battles. This is what I meant by Revy being helpless. This became clear when she failed to win the dealers over with her fighting. Meanwhile, Rock made a wonderful deal in a peaceable way. So, Revy is having to face the fact that in some ways she is incompetent. In some ways, Rock is better than her.
This causes fear and rage, which spurs Revy on to try to bully Rock around at the restaurant. The Lagoon company is her shelter and the place where she belongs. She always performs excellently for the team. But now, Rock has found an area in which he can outdo her.
As you can see, Revy is quite insecure. Revy and those at the Lagoon company are outlaws and thieves, similar to Robin Hood and his Merry Men. But Robin Hood had a certain kind of personal honor. His purpose was to rob the rich to feed the poor. So, he was a noble outlaw.
Revy views the world as beyond any hope or redemption. So although she may have hoped, deep down, to meet a Robin Hood, Revy could find none in all her life. It was likely something that distressed her on the rare occasions when she slowed down to think.
Rock had no problem presenting a possible solution to the supposedly hopeless dilemma. If she was going to keep him alive and work with him, then Revy would have to start treating Rock with more respect. After getting most of the fury out of her system, she was willing to try this out. She was looking for his honest response. Whose side do you want to be on? What does this question mean?
I have an answer, but limited certainty. That being said, I think the core of the issue is that Revy has a very binary, black-and-white view of things. There must always be two sides. Dichotomy and nuances are not easy to grasp for some people. He uses logic, reasoning, and a fair amount of ethics to function. However, now Rock is interested in and committed to his work as a mercenary at the Lagoon company. He is independent and has as much self-interest as the next person.
Where does that put him? Is he a good-guy or a bad-guy, a hero or a villain? Another option is that Revy was referring to the Robin Hood story again. Having once been one of the rich, and now being an outlaw, where does Rock want to be?
Would he rather live a life following the rules, or make his own rules? Either way, there are only two sides. Revy needs to know who Rock stands with. I am where I am standing. Rock is a shade of grey, somewhere in between opportunistic and honorable, selfish and altruistic, tough and sheltered.
One may alternatively see it as a statement of friendship and closeness with Revy. I think this view is problematic, however, and not quite fitting with the characters. In summary, this scene in Black Lagoon is immensely important to the characters and the themes of the show. It provides new insights about the mindstates and personalities of Rock and Revy. It also raises interesting questions and topics, such as individual worldviews, personal honor, the usefulness of violence, the usefulness of logic, human emotional fragility, and more.
Thank you so much for reading my work today. I hope you found some things to think about or ponder as you read.

Biggest want. Was able to track down the damaged version of original and base for under which I wanted most of all. But this new one is slightly disappointing. I actually liked the Originals head, and to me is more of a step sideways, rather than upwards. Perhaps including the original heads would be a good option and Damaged clothing and accessories. But I will order anyway. This looks fantastic, I have DX07 and will be picking this up too, I can't pass it up. Looks pretty good, imo. I'd love to pair this with a decently sculpted Bespin Han.

While we generally avoid political debate and topics, we had to address the recent undoing of RoeVsWade. Hear our initial reactions and be sure to see our YouTube video where we discuss it in more detail. Social media exacerbated the gatekeeping by allowing an anonymous face behind the keyboard. But really, most people are not the same in person as they are online, and a lot of people have crappy social skills. Written by Steve Byrne a licensed psychologist and a fan of extreme music for 25 years he examines the attitudes of the fanbase and basically concludes, as we agreed, that times have changed even within the extreme metal community. There are lots of nostalgia moments in the new Jurassic World and overall, we felt this movie was the most enjoyable out of the newest three.

Salaryman Rokurou Okajima spends his days trying to climb his company's corporate ladder, until one day when a business negotiation in Thailand goes awry. During the botched deal, he falls hostage to the Lagoon Company—a band of ruthless pirate mercenaries. Left to the whims of his captors after his managers refuse to pay his ransom, Rokurou does the unthinkable: instead of begging for his life, he joins the very crew who kidnapped him. Now a member of the group, Rokurou must adjust to his new residence in the dissolute hellscape known as Roanapur, a city where corruption and crime run rampant, and even the smallest slipup could cost him his life.

Kakashi x Reader. Without another word, she leaves. Please consider allowing Autoblog. Keep in mind that jealousy is usually a sign that someone is insecure, so try to be empathetic, even though it's not always easy.

Videotape also plays a role in a Spader film released almost simultaneously, Bad Influence , in which he plays a meek yuppie at the mercy of alpha male Rob Lowe — who was trying to rehabilitate his career after a tape leaked shot by the actor and documenting his real-life threesomes — one with a 16 year-old girl. We close the first half of this season talking about Lowe, Spader and how camcorder mediation of sex changed pop culture forever.
