Nature made Ash Lynx beautiful; nurture made him a cold ruthless killer. A runaway brought up as the adopted heir and sex toy of "Papa" Dino Golzine, Ash, now at the rebellious age of seventeen, forsakes the kingdom held out by the devil who raised him. But the hideous secret that drove Ash's older brother mad in Vietnam has suddenly fallen into Papa's insatiably ambitious hands—and it's exactly the wrong time for Eiji Okamura, a pure-hearted young photographer from Japan, to make Ash Lynx's acquaintance...

Banana Fish is an American gangster/mafia story written from a Japanese perspective, and man is it good! The original manga is written by Yoshida, Akimi and is hailed as a classic for many who've read it, but does this adaption serve the original justice? Well, here's my take on it.

Now before I start I want to clarify; THIS IS NOT A YAOI ANIME, YES THERES YAOI UNDERTONES BUT NOT ACTUAL YAOI (The undertones are pedophilia and are shown as such). This is more of a shounen-ai, but to a lesser extent to Hitorijime my Hero and such.


The story is simple; Our protag just wants read more
