This is the sixth volume of the Banana Fish manga.

 Synopsis Edit

GANGS OF NEW YORK...

1980s New York: Corsican Mafioso Dino Golzine took in runaway Ash Lynx as a boy, forcing him into prostitution even while grooming him as his heir. Ash rebelled, gathering a gang around his personal charisma and deadly skills. Their truce shattered over Dino’s plot to exploit a nightmarish drug–code-named “Banana Fish”–that drove Ash’s late brother mad in Vietnam.

Now Ash, together with reporter Max Lobo, Japanese photographer Ibe, and Dr. Alexis Dawson–who with his brother Abraham created Banana Fish–have been delivered to Dino by his dubious partners, the Chinese Lee syndicate. Ash’s old rival, the sadistic Arthur, is now Dino’s right-hand thug; while Ash’s comrade, gangster Shorter Wong, was first blackmailed into betraying him and now has been brainwashed by Abraham’s injection of Banana fish into having a homicidal fear of Ibe’s ward and Ash’s close friend, young Eiji. For his amusement and to demonstrate the drug’s power to a shadowy cabal, Dino wishes Shorter to mutilate Eiji before Ash’s eyes. Only two factors remain outside Dino’s control: Yut-Lung, the Lee brother seeks a personal revenge against his own family, and the ruffians of Shorter and Ash’s old gangs....

Summary Edit

In the basement of respectable businessman Dino Golzine’s New Jersey mansion is a private execution chamber better suited to Dino’s private identity–as one of the five biggest mob bosses on the East Coast, and leader of the committee that runs the Union Corse. Gathered in this chamber to do work are Arthur, the man who replaced the rebellious Ash Lynx as Dino’s heir, and Dr. Abraham Dawson, who together with his older brother Alexis stumbled upon “Banana Fish” in college. Here to be worked upon are the captured Ash, Max, Ibe, and Eiji. And the working itself will be done through Shorter Wong, shot full of Banana Fish–which puts its victims into a mental hell they believe can only end then they carry out a specific command. In Shorter’s case the command is to gut and dismember Eiji with his knife. Watching with interest through TV cameras are Dino and his guests: an U.S. Senator and a high-ranking Army general. They believe Banana Fish may have great potential...
