Black Lagoon doesn’t particularly start off anywhere coherent. A ship containing a informational disc relevant to a major Japanese company in the hands of a businessman named Rokuro is boarded by a band of pirate mercenaries who kidnap Rokuro and hold him as a hostage. The company Rokuro works for negotiates a deal to have the disc recollected but doesn’t do much by way of getting Rokuro home safely. Meanwhile as they pirates and Rokuro head towards the drop off Rokuro, nicknamed Rock by the crew, decides he’d rather stay with the crew and become a pirate himself. It’s there where the adventure begins. The rest of the back story gets filled in as we move along.
