    Banana Fish

    I actually forgot to watch episode 2 already (silly me!) but I was able to find it on YT somehow, thank you INTERNET But really, when I was reading this manga more than 20 years ago, there wasn't SNS at all so it is really amazing that we can exchange information or opinions like this, moreover on the international forum. And if I talk about the broadcast in Japan, I kind of feel relieved this series has been aired midnight since the content is not for little children, which in a way, brings more adult viewers who prefer realistic and darker side of the world.

    Banana Fish

    I really love her old manga, too! I can't still believe she wrote Banana Fish when she was around 30 years old on a magazine of Shojo manga. I think this is the first story made into an anime series as far as I know, some of her works have been made into TV drama or movie though. I like this review and summary of Episode 3, I don't understand perfectly what he is saying because of lack of my English ability but I agree with him on many points.

    Banana Fish

    Episode 3 with English sub, looks like it will be there for only 3 days. (Amazon Prime is streaming the show officially.) Please be aware the fight scenes and sexual contents. Ash knows himself that he is attractive, and he makes most of it to survive even though he is hurt mentally and physically. It is sad and cruel, but that makes him more attractive character IMO. I hope we'll see Shorter in the next episode

    Banana Fish

    I have been reading the comics again, but the next episode of anime might be tough one if it is exactly based on the comic. I think they can skip some scenes but I'm almost scared how they will show it (and I'm worried about discriminatory terms to be honest, I hope they won't have them in anime...)

    Banana Fish

    Oh, I totally agree. Honestly there are too many "why is this happening to him/ them?" moments in the series but I think those are necessary to build the characters and story in deep. Have you ever read another story called "The garden with the holy light?" I wonder if the show will be including some of the pages from it.

    About the necklaces, I showed "Haru yo koi" to my mother twice, and each time she was like "Wait, did his neck just get longer!? Am I wrong?" so I had to tell her, "Calm down and look, he isn't wearing any necklace in this program." She accepted it but probably I will have to say the same thing when I show her the program again (she admires and envies his long neck)

    Found episode 1 & 2 with English sub, please be aware that the show includes violence (gun action, blood), the drug and sexual content.
  8. I've never thought I would make a thread here, I am a little bit nervous but Hi! Have you ever heard of Japanese manga called "BANANA FISH"? It became anime recently and episode 2 was already aired. I don't usually watch anime (the last anime I watched was YOI, I watched it because it was about figure skating), but BANANA FISH is exceptional for me because I read comic books when I was young and I can not still throw them away. This manga was written in mid 80's to 90' and serialized on "Bessatu Shojo Comic", but apparently it was rare to see "hard action shonen manga" kind in there while others were mostly love romance of pretty girls and boys. So far, I like animation a lot and am so glad it will take 24 episodes (yeeess!), no wonder they do it though since the story is very long and it is almost impossible to finish in one season if they really want to try to true to the original story and characters. This is official web site of BANANA FISH, we can watch some trailers here. Brief translation of introduction of episodes 1 & 2 from official web site. Episode 1 New York. A boy with an exceptionally well-formed appearance and with outstanding fighting power, Ash Lynx, has been the leader of the street gang at the age of 17. One night, Ash is told the word "banana fish" with the address from a man shot by his own minions. It was a word that Griffin, Ash's wrecked older brother, often mumbles. Around the same time, he meets Eiji Okumura, a Japanese boy who came as a photographer's assistant. Episode 2 *Skip and Eiji have been taken away by *Arthur and his minions. Ash who goes to rescue them is caught by Marvin, a subordinate of Gorzine who joins forces with Arthur. The three try to escape with Ash's tact. *Shorter also appears and rough fight starts. Ash pursuits Marvin trying to run away, but when he enters the room, he sees an unexpected sight. *Skip and Shorter are in Ash's group. *Arthur is also in Ash's group but he is trying to revenge Ash. *Gorzine is the boss of Mafia I imagine there are many members love anime and manga here, so I thought it would be great if we can have fun discussion about this BANANA FISH (I confess I don't have any friend to talk about this ), please feel free to share information etc. Thank you

    Yuzuru: I am nervous. I am nervous but I am not an actor, so I hope I can have fun. And this is my first time coming to "eiga-mura (movie village)" and I think the best thing is to feel the atmosphere and enjoy it here. Reporter: How about the lines? Yuzuru: I have memorized them for now and they have been soaked into my body for now, but perhaps I'll get nervous and blow them (laugh). It's a part of my calculation (laugh), can't help it. I am embarrassed, embarrassed. Reporter: You are used to being filmed, aren't you? Yuzuru: I might not be used to being filmed (laugh), I get nervous, still.

    In the video clip, the sales lady said the foreign customers came and they (she didn't say how many) purchased Sendaihira products for themselves and others as souvenirs. I wonder if they were the members of this forum

    You are right, some amount of Takashimaya profits would be donated for restoration assistance.

    Thank you for your report and photos! The interview looks very interesting, Yuzuru has not seen ballet performance in person so Stephane hopes they'll be able to go and see it together...I hope they can make it someday

    Thank you for your post, there are actors and actresses only for the reenactment drama in Japan, so I have to say it is very unique situation. I think it is a good idea that you will just wait for the reviews if you feel any hesitation to see the program. It is not always necessary to understand and agree with everything in Japan because Yuzuru is a Japanese I said I did not know Kenshin Endo, but I asked my mother (she is TV drama otaku) and she knew him I looked at his profile page again and found out he was from big agency that the famous names belong to, such as Hiroki Hasegawa and Aoi Miyazaki. I might be one of the minority looking forward to see how it is going to be because this is the first time an actor known in TV drama actually plays Yuzuru's role. The length will be short though since the show lasts two hours but it has other athletes' segments, too.

    A sport entertainment program will be aired on May 25 from 19:00 on NTV, there is going to be docudrama of Yuzuru including Orser's interview. Young actor, Kenshin Endo plays the role of Yuzuru. I don't know him but he is 17 and 179 cm tall, and plays basketball. Next weekend will be very busy for us
