    Thank you for posting this, I am Japanese but I didn't know Birthday had meaning I'm going to share the list with my friends, mine was "Moon Heart" by the way I woke up in the morning and saw Laureus' video and Raya's, Yuzuru is looking good, isn't he? I also enjoyed reading the comments and GIFs under Laureus's tweets

    Thank you for the updates about Rikako. The whole country was shocked at this news and it still is. Life is not fair, I have no words. As you know, Wakaba is her friend and she said on Instagram that she went to the temple/shrine to pray. I wish Rikako the best, she is a talented, sweet, and smart athlete.

    Thank you. I didn't know about that, so I've just looked it up and found out Yuri on Ice won many awards on Crunchyroll in 2016. Do you think this was one of the reasons for not airing BANANA FISH on Crunchyroll, too? I am not blaming YOI at all (I watched all episodes of it and it was a good sport anime for me), but I just feel it is kind a sad stereotype if it was the case. Well, I am happy if BF wins Tokyo Anime Award Festival at least

    I am not following Miki on SNS but I have never heard of her comment "Yuzuru is successful because of Javi", I wonder where this came from I remember Miki apologized to Yuzuru's fans on twitter saying she was sorry for making them confused about what she said in TV show. To me, Miki and Kozuka are not well spoken when they talk on TV, so I tend not to take them very seriously (I know they are really trying, but still). But this is only my opinion and I don't know how other Japanese fans think

    Sure, sorry for my rough translation I got so emotional after watching NHK documentary and I can not sleep
  8. I woke up in the morning and saw the scores for top 3 of men. What is this? And now I've just watched them but my first thought has not changed...good job, US nationals as always, probably better than ever. Happy for the skaters though.

    It seems extra music track is in Blu-ray/DVD Box vol.2. BGM in the ending is called "Liberty"...OK... It sounds so beautiful, I want to listen to it fully.

    In Kimono From left, Eiji, Ash, Blanca. I still can't believe Ash's voice comes out from his mouth

    Here you can read "Garden of Light" with Mr. TheDriver. As you can see, this is the story about how Eiji and Sing are doing 7 years after Ash's death. Sing has grown up

    In "Tokyo Anime Award Festival 2019", BANANA FISH won the first place in top 100 of anime this year. It seems this award is famous, the viewers will vote next year again to choose "anime fan award", and the professionals in anime field will decide "best anime award" and "best individual award" (don't know what it means, do they give a prize to a best character?), all out of 100 anime selected this time. http://news.livedoor.com/article/detail/15795385/

    I bought this official guide book "Rebirth". I haven't finished reading this yet, but it is truly for the fans. It has many interesting information I didn't know, including past Yoshida's interview with publishers. Did you know Blanca's character was supposed to be a woman named Tatiana? Yoshida started to drawing her figure but one of the editors suggested a man character would be better. Good job And Yoshida talked about the ending of the series, too. I guess now we are able to discuss the ending finally so I put this here. She said it was always difficult to decide if she made a main character live or not because most of them in her manga were criminals. They were criminals but hurt so much for the reasons and had to kill to survive, but she always wondered if it was right for them to live happily ever after all crimes they committed, she also said Ash and Eiji being in Japan didn't assure their happiness for sure. So in this manga, she decided to end Ash's life (and I've also read in another source that she had decided it from the beginning.) I am aware there are a lot of different opinions about the ending and it is the greatest thing about this story IMO since we can look at it from many point of views What do you think about it? I personally respect Yoshida's decision of leaving the reality in the story. Yes, it is manga, she could make it fantasy as she liked, but one thing I really like about BANANA FISH is the reality it has. And I confess, I might have not remembered this piece if it was happy ending because I was reading a lot of manga when I was young, and many of them were happy ending and I don't remember them now I cried and was shocked reading BANANA FISH for the first time, it was one of the most impactful moment for me as reading manga. So if I describe my feeling about the ending in short, it may be "it was well fitting but frustrating." (I am borrowing this from one of the reactors on YT) I understand and accept it, and it is so beautiful and I don't think it is bad ending at all. But I can not help but dream about "what if Ash lives".

    More suffering, final scene of the last episode. My ridiculous figure skating brain tells me it would be amazing if Yuzuru skates to this beautiful sad pure music...maybe tempo is too slow but I think he can pull it off. Is this piece in the soundtrack? I am confident that I can cry only listening to this right now lol.
