About
『BANANA FISH』(バナナフィッシュ)is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Akimi Yoshida. Originally serialized in Shōjo Comic from 1985 to 1994, the series follows Ash Lynx, a teenage gang leader in New York City. With a brutal past and not a lot of hope for a better future, Ash is holding steady in his life as the leader of a gang in downtown Manhattan. Mostly he's treading water - trying to stay alive as he struggles to free himself from the unendurable tether of Papa Dino Golzine, the mob boss who has been grooming him to be both his lover and heir since he was a child. Ash's world changes when he stumbles across a dying man in an alley. The man pushes a vial into his hand and utters his last words: "Banana Fish." This phrase isn't new to Ash, and it opens a door to an old mystery and the exquisite possibility of freedom.

Days later, Ash meets Okumura Eiji, a young Japanese man who came to the United States as the assistant to a photographer who hopes to do a journalistic piece on American youth gangs. What begins as a random encounter quickly escalates into a life-and-death struggle, knotting Ash and Eiji together in ways that cannot be untangled.

It's been a year since episode 24 aired

Even though it's been a year I'm sure a lot of us are still stuck with the ending of this amazing and painful story. 

The story that BANANA FISH adaption delivered has convinced me that it has been the absolute best anime I've ever watched and I don't know if it's possible to beat, at least not in this century. 

Even though it's been a year (And three days) I am still feeling devastated from the last episode of BANANA FISH. I didn't think any anime would get me this sentimental, ever. It was next to 'impossible' having to wait a week for each episode to air, especially the last three episodes. Man, it was just one terrible event after another filled with plot twists and heartbreaks. I'm still speechless and I often think of the fact that "Wo…

Halloween times!

Banana Fish is one such series lucky enough to have seasonal events occur in its story, namely Halloween! It's the right kind of spooky, fun filled times with the latter part of Episode 12 To Have and Have Not featuring Ash arriving home to Eiji with the appropriate backdrop, not limited to a large amount of pumpkins, much to Ash's delight!


As if it could be better, promotional materials have also released further Halloween related Banana Fish artwork, with the characters in their best trick or treat attire!

With that, such amazing moments and scenes make for a perfect collage for the wiki background for Halloween, which obviously must be shared!

Also favourite images, moments and fan art of the cast during Halloween, what you like best and w…
