A series of seven short fan-oriented OMAKE specials were released as a special bonus on the Black Lagoon DVD/BlueRay disks. Playing fast and loose with characters of the series, each three-to-five minute 'episode' takes everything to a comedic and bizarre extreme. But typical of many omake specials, the animation is minimal and quirky, but the silliness factor is pushed to the limit.

Seven short OVA episodes.

This was enough of a hoot! This set of omake episodes features parodies (high school comedy, mahou shoujo), the show poking fun of itself by breaking the fourth wall (Rock being aware of his situation, some references to events from the show) and a couple shorts that tease the fanfic crowd (gender swapping, the cast younger than they are). Besides major characters like Balalaika and the members of Lagoon Company, you can expect some of the prominent secondary characters to make an appearance like Roberta, Eda and murderous twins Hansel and Gretel. The animation is a bit limited compared to the fluid movements you normally would expect from the show. But considering how silly and over-the-top these shorts are compared to the grittiness and attitude that Black Lagoon is known for, this still makes for a humorous quick watch if you're a Black Lagoon fan.
