I enjoyed this and the story arc. Their death was going to happen. Them living was not an option. I think Hansel died befitting of him, while Gretel died just to make Rock feel. But they were far too broken and have done too much damage for anybody to leave them alive. I felt so much worse at the end of that season with the Yakuza child's suicide.

Hansel and Gretel's story was very sad, forced to kill or be killed. It makes me sick that people would do that to children.

This is beautiful; I love Hansel and Gretel I almost cried when they died.

It was a dark, melancholy story (only watched the dubbed version), with a lot of truth in it. There were indeed a lot of unwanted children placed in orphanages where they came from, all to the glory of a madman running that country. A lot of them 'disappeared' after the Wall fell...

Hansel and Gretel's story doesn't seem so farfetched. While they were killers, they were made that way, out of a will to survive. It is what gets me most about this arc. I knew they had to die. There simply is no other way since there is no way to cure them. The thought that with each kill, they become even more immortal is burned so deep into their psyche, there is no way to remove it. Even Rock, who the girl thought was the sweetest guy, someone she really liked, wasn't going to be safe if she thought it would enhance her immortality.

It was a hard thing to watch, exemplified by Boris saying as much and remember, he had seen a lot of bad things in Afghanistan. I grieve for the life taken from them but I celebrate their death because it means an end to their suffering. Maybe, if there is an afterlife, they may find mercy and all the things they didn't get in this life.

i really loved this poem, and yes the story was very touching...
wouldn't it be great if someone (perhaps you?) wrote an alternate ending to the story where they get away? (and let other stuff happen too i suppose) such is the tragedy of my two favourite characters of black lagoon dying, oh well...
great story/ poem!
