I wrote this because Yasha got bad score and I don't think Yasha deserve it.

The art improve a little from when Banana Fish was released.

Yasha is more focused on biological weapon and human experiment. If you like Banana Fish, I think you will like Yasha because the story has similar pattern, the male lead really remind me of Ash. I read Yasha recently and the situation is really similar with COVID-19 so I think people can relate.

What I really like about Yasha is the bond between two male leads. It's really unique like no one else. The male lead is really well ...
