Best Anime of 2018 That You Should Marathon Right Now
Banana Fish is based on a phenomenal drama manga series, and while the anime version of the show does make some small changes it’s still packed with drama and tense moments. The show tells the story of Ash Lynx, a runaway brought up and abused by the crime lord “Papa” Dino Golzine. When a disastrous secret falls into Golzine’s hands, Ash meets a pure-hearted young photographer named Eiji Okamura, and their fates begin to change.
The biggest change for the anime comes with its setting, now taking place in a modern New York City. The anime comes from the same studio responsible for Yuri on Ice, and the director of Free! The animation quality is quite good, and the subject matter is brutal, emotional, and mature. The relationship between the two main leads is absolutely fascinating, and it’s easily one of the most gripping narratives of the year. If you’re looking for a good drama, look no further than Banana Fish which is available exclusively on Amazon.
