My Lost City is the sixth episode of the Banana Fish anime.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

In Cape Cod, the group uses Griffin's files to identify his killer: Abraham Dawson, a member of Griffin's platoon in Iraq who lives at the street address given to Ash by the dying man. Jim, Ash's estranged father, reveals to the group that Ash was sexually assaulted as a child, and later murdered his rapist; when Ash was sent to live with Jim's younger sister, he ran away from home. That evening, Golzine's men confront Ash, wounding Jim and fatally shooting Jennifer, Jim's girlfriend. Jim stages the scene to appear to be a botched robbery, and gives Ash his blessing to take down Golzine. The group, having identified Dawson's address as being in Los Angeles, flee to the west coast. Back in New York, we see Golzine and Mr. Lee making a deal. Golzine wants Mr. Lee's help to capture Ash and in exchange, he is willing to relinquish a portion of the heroine market in Europe starting the new year. Golzine tells Mr. Lee that he needs Ash captured to contain the information he has about Banana Fish. Ash has two reporter friends with him and he doesn't want the information to leak out to the public. Mr. Lee agrees to assist Gozine. He has some territory in Los Angeles' Chinatown and has assigned Yut Lung, the Dragon Moon, to attend to the situation.
