Series Summary from Viz Media:
Jonah is a child soldier, born amidst the chaotic conflicts that rage across West Asia, his family lost to a war fueled by weapons supplied by the so-called Merchants of Death--international arms dealers. Despite Jonah's hatred of weapons and violence, he employs both extremely well in the service of high-flying arms dealer Koko Hekmatyar and her band of mercenaries. Their journey through the dark underbelly of the world's arms markets may lead only to damnation, but will Jonah one day make his way back to the light? Only one thing is certain: it's going to be a long, hard road out of hell... 
Kenn's Comment: Before I say anything, if you take a quick look at the official site, you'll notice a little Black Ops II crossing with the series. What is it? Beats me, but if I had to guess it'd likely be something to do with DLC stuff in Japan. Who knows?

Anywho, really looking forward to this. Jormungand was one of my favourite series of the spring and that one was really good too. If you haven't watched the first season yet, I strongly suggest you do. Violence wise, it's a bit toned down compared to Black Lagoon, so it should be fine for those who found Lagoon too much. Jormungand also has much more emphasis on the business side of things, while Lagoon's on the shooting.

I'm only comparing to two because of how similar they come off from the surface. But I digress. Watch it.
