Banana Fish has got everything that you ever could wish for!
3 February 2019 | by rahashirleySee all my reviews

It was the fanarts of the two main characters that caught my eyes first and made me watch it but God! I really didn't expect it to be this good! It has got all you ever could possibly wish for! Very well writen and stunning story, strong main character and solid sub characters and a very very new and unique romance.

I loved the characters and specially the main character, Ash. he's strong but not flawless, he's hurt but not broken, he's a true fighter and leader who tasted the brutality of his world, our world, but learned how to survive when he was just a kid.

I was really going to rate this 10 or 9 when I was like 75% into it, it's exactly THAT much good! But unfortunately the last 6 episodes weren't that good, They were confusing and some how I felt it was too much action and fighting and I'm bored, so I guess 8 is enough.

Definitely worths watching it!
