Chapter 01 is the first chapter of the BANANA FISH manga.
10 years later, in Bronx, New York, the corpse of a man is found. They discus the specious serconstances and the two Japanese reporters that would be arriving.
The same night, Ash Lynx overhears a gunshot and finds a man on the brink of death. He gives him something and an address, saying "Banana Fish" before dying. Two men run up and say that Papa Dino told them to. He tells them to run before the cops arrive.
Ash talks to Dino and becomes angry when he says the man's murder was "trivial." He apologizes for not telling him and teasingly asks if he has a girlfriend. He caresses his face and says he loves him, asking him to think it over.
Outside, Ash meets Shorter. He tells him to go easy on Marvin, saying that he holds a grudge and is gay. He agrees and Shorter asks that he doesn't force him to kill Ash. He teases him for his line and says that's why he's going bald.
A man enters Dino's greenhouse and tells him a small amount is missing.
Ash plays with the pendant and finds a capsule and an address. He leaves to see his brother. He tries to get answers from him, but he remains silent.
