Oh, Banana Fish... Where do I start?

I hadn't heard much about the anime prior to watching it. I never heard anything about it being BL or yaoi (I heard there was some discussion about that when it first aired in 2018 or something). In fact I was initially put off watching it because of the shoujo tag--it's not my preferred genre.

I decided to give it a try any way and I'm so glad I did. My preference is definitely shounen/seinen with lots of action and fighting. If that's what you're looking for then Banana Fish is the show for you. Banana Fish centers around read more

This film is your typical story of our main gang teaming up to fight evil and the outcome is predictable of course, but the film was still enjoyable. I really liked the pacing in particular. The dialogue doesn't go on for too long and the balance between the fight scenes and the slower scenes is just right to progress the story to where it needs to go. I tend to view the DBZ films as standalone films within the franchise because trying to make sense of them timeline wise kind of ruins how much I enjoy the films as a whole (because it doesn't make read more
