A fresh take on the Banana Fish manga
22 August 2018 | by ljfseven-45779See all my reviews

The Banana Fish anime is an updated story taken from the previous Banana Fish manga (comic). Not only is this a fresh take on the manga, but provides a story and setting that isn't very common in anime.

The anime is set in New York and follows a gang leader (Ash) who befriends several unlikely people to solve a mystery and obtain revenge. This anime is in no way family friendly and has quite a bit of violence, drugs, sexual situations and a disturbing sexual backstory.
