The episodes of the Black Lagoon anime are based on the manga series of the same name by Rei Hiroe. The episodes of the first season of the anime were directed by Sunao Katabuchi, animated by Madhouse Studios, and produced by Geneon Entertainment and Shogakukan.[1] In the second season, known as Black Lagoon: The Second Barrage, Shogakukan was not involved in the production.[2] The English adaptation of the episodes is licensed by Geneon Entertainment.[1][2] The plot of the episodes follows the adventures of a Japanese businessman, Rokuro Okajima, after he is abducted by the members of the ship Black Lagoon and joins their crew under the moniker "Rock".

The first season aired from April 8, 2006, to June 24, 2006, on Chiba TV in Japan.[1] The second season began airing on October 3, 2006, on KBS Kyoto, TV Nagoya, TV Kanagawa, and Sun TV, and concluded its run on December 19, 2006.[2] The English adaptations of both seasons were aired continuously from October 26, 2007, to April 11, 2008, on G4techTV Canada; the English episodes were also broadcast in the United States from February 26, 2008, to May 13, 2008, on Starz Edge.[1][2]

Four pieces of theme music are used for the episodes: one opening theme and three closing themes. The opening theme is "Red fraction" by Mell. The three closing themes are "Don't Look Behind" by Edison, used for all the episodes of the first season and the second season save episode fifteen, which featured "The World of Midnight" by Minako Obata, and episode twenty-four, which used "Peach Headz Addiction" by Breath Frequency. The original soundtrack for the series, containing all the opening and closing themes, was released on August 30, 2006, in Japan.[3]

Six DVD compilations, each containing two episodes of the first season, were released by Geneon Entertainment between August 26, 2006, and December 27, 2006.[4][5] The episodes of the second season have been released in six DVD compilations from January 31, 2007, to June 27, 2007.[6][7] The English adaptation of the anime is also distributed by Geneon Entertainment; three DVD compilations each containing four episodes were released between May 22, 2007, and September 18, 2007.[8][9]
