“This is more entertaining than Hollywood is ever gonna be!” – Black Lagoon
Black Lagoon is where gangsters meet drug dealers, and the ugly side of crime and what it leads to.
It’s real, raw, gritty, and for that reason the quotes are some of darkest, most meaningful an anime could ever hit you with.
The anime quotes and content even makes realistic movies look like PG films in comparison.
Here are some the best lines taken from:

13 Black Lagoon Quotes Worth Sharing:
Revy Rebecca Quotes
“Whether we live or die isn’t a big issue. If you focus on being alive, you develop fear. Your eyes get clouded. But if you have no such feelings… you are capable of fighting right to the end of the world.” – Revy Rebecca
“So how do you measure a thing’s worth? Nostalgia and memories don’t mean shit. Value is determined by a universally accepted unit. Money. Any other measures of value ain’t nothing more than sentimental bullshit.” – Revy Rebecca
“You’ve got to enjoy life, or else you’ll end up wasting it.” – Revy Rebecca
“Rock, if you think about it, other than this, what do we really value in life? God? Love? Don’t make me laugh. When I was a brat, crawling around in that shithole city, it seemed God and Love were always sold out when I went looking. Before I knew better, I clung to God and prayed to Him every single night — yeah, I believed in God right up until that night the cops beat the hell out of me for no reason at all. All they saw when they looked at me was another little ghetto rat. With no power and no God, what’s left for a poor little Chinese bitch to rely on? It’s money, of course, and guns.” – Revy Rebecca
“If you cling to life, you live in fear of death. And that fear will cloud your judgment.” – Revy Rebecca
“What a terrible story. But appropriate for our world. Sometimes I feel like I’m walking over a giant pile of shit. Morality and justice don’t really suit me. Words like that and what comes out of asses are surprisingly similar.” – Revy Rebecca
“If I was looking for pity I would’ve told you something a lot more colourful. The moral of the story is when you’re livin’ on the edge, that’s all that matters to you because that’s all you’ve really got. Not everyone can get off on being normal, Rock. And one more thing… All those rich fat bastards living under palm-trees – and bitches who think that life’s only about putting on make-up. I don’t want to hear you speaking your mind from the same perspective as those hypocrites. Nothing’s worse than being treated like some whore by your companions. I’ll say this once. The next time you decide you’re gonna tell me what’s proper, you’ll no longer be one of us. When that happens… I am going to kill you.” – Revy Rebecca
“Justice. I can’t think of another word more loved by the people. It does have a nice ring to it. However, without ever exercising your own strength, you seek the death of others at the hands of someone else. Well, the justice you refer to smells pretty rotten to me.” – Balalaika
Rokuro Okajima Quotes
“I’m no saint. A sense of duty, a sense of righteousness – they’re just nuisances in life.” – Rokuro Okajima
“The name of this city is spoken of among the villains of the world. Many who come here to make a name for themselves are swallowed by the darkness, never to return. A cruel fate awaits any half-assed small time crook, who accidentally stumbles into Roanapur. Right now another sacrificial lamb has wandered too far from home. The city awaits.” – Rokuro Okajima
Sister Eda Quotes
“God’s not at home. He’s on vacation at Vegas.” – Eda
Mister Chang Quotes
“It’s been 35 years… since this rotten harbor town became a den of vice. Roanapur has managed to stay out of CNN’s evening news or the dinner topic of housewives only because… from the past to the present, the motives of those who’ve gathered here have always been consistent. That is, it’s in our mutual interest to lead the public eye away from our more stimulating businesses, for the peace of mind of those who are crooked. … Please remember this. If we continue suspecting each other, continue pursuing our own self-interests… who do you think will be left standing in the ring in the end? There won’t be anybody there, ladies and gentlemen. Not you, not me… Not even the ring itself.” – Mister Chang
“When you try and live it up by raising your useless self up on a podium, you end up with a march-loving idiot.” – Dutch
