Banana Fish Episode 2 !EXCLUSIVE!

Banana Fish is a cut above many of its peers from that era, making it a strong choice for a high-profile production today. Right out of the gate, it delivers an intriguing plot and a fascinating cast of characters. Even if you're not that into the show's developing romance, Banana Fish makes a strong first impression as a crime drama. It drops question after twist after mystery that leaves you itching to learn more. Who or what is "Banana Fish"? Why are all these people so obsessed with it? What can Ash do to get out of the mafia (assuming he truly wants to)? How will fish-out-of-water Eiji adjust to the trouble he's stumbled into? It doesn't hurt that the show looks great too, boasting high production values alongside a fun and quirky soundtrack. It's a great pedigree for adapting a classic manga.

Banana Fish Episode 2


After endearing us to the characters, establishing the stakes, and knocking out some impressive action scenes, the story really ramps up in episode 3. Since Ash is in prison now, there's less opportunity for fight sequences and more time to develop the central mystery. Ash's cellmate isn't just a guy who was paid to protect him; Max Lobo (real name: Max Glenreed) turns out to have been a friend of his brother Griffin, from when he was in the army. He's spent his time since working as a journalist and obsessively searching for the secret of "Banana Fish" himself, out of guilt for attempting to kill Griffin in self-defense. The series has strong potential as a portrait of various broken people trying to put their lives back together again by solving this mystery. I hope that Ash can learn to see what he and Max have in common and embrace him as an ally, rather than continue holding him to his past.

MAPPA's adaptation moves Banana Fish into the present day from its original 1980s setting. That makes sense to a certain degree, since it was in the "present" when the manga was published, but it requires some interesting changes. The biggest one is that in the original manga, Griffin and Max fought in Vietnam, while now it's the second Iraq War. Obviously there are parallels between these conflicts (as any Iraq War protester would've told you), but it's not a complete 1:1. The drug element of Banana Fish reflects the specific role they held in the Vietnam era, from the general impact of 1960s-70s drug counterculture to their active role in the war. Griffin's story seems based on Agent Orange, a herbicide used during the Vietnam War that had deleterious effects on the mental health of people exposed to it, including many soldiers. That's just my initial impression though, and episode 3 suggests that there's more to "Banana Fish" than a simple parallel.

Like the title of this blog says, I'm going to list all thethings I am looking forward to the most. Thatmeans that I've had to choose between various scenes from the Mangaand picturing how they would be as an adapted anime scene, and thatgoes for all scenes. The cute ones, the funny ones, the sad ones,the weird ones, etc. I'll do a top...6 version. Here are the ones I've chosen for the tenthand eleventh episode.

To start off with, the climax of the episode was the song. I knew it was gonna be good, but what I didn't know was that it wasgonna be SO heartbreaking. The song, the sounds of the instruments,the lyrics. Boy the lyrics...

I'm not even done with episode 9 but I needed to post thelyrics to his song. I kid you not I was legitimately sobbingwhen I heard it. (Also we got some amazingly pure Mafuyu x Yuki.I'm so happy with the way this anime adaptation came out. It makesme so happy.)

Next is Ritsuka Uenoyama. With a lot of debating, I have decidedthat he reminds me of Yuri Plisetsky in the later episodes ofseason one. They both have unconventional ways to show their loveto those they care about but it somehow gets across. They're alsoknown to lash out at times...

Ever since the 7th episode of Given has aired, I couldn't help,but speculate about Kedama, or is their a another dog that isn'tmentioned yet? So, this is my opinion on what I'm analyzing fromthe anime and the manga, so far.

The song was first introduced in the second episode, "LikeSomeone In Love" and was also sung later on by Mafuyu in episodethree, Somebody Else and is sung by Ritsuka Uenoyama in episodesix, Fluorescent Adolescent...

The faces all the characters can make are absolutely priceless,and I will now give a few example as to what had me drop deadbecause it was so funny that I repeated that scene 10-15 timesbefore I continued watching the rest of the episode.

The episode did start emotionally but then it turned into acomedy shortly after. When Akihiko arrives at the school whereHaruki is waiting, Haruki gets pretty p*ssed jealous. This part hadme died laughing, priceless reactions and especially that face, Idied.

I cannot wait... Well I have to because when an anime startsairing, I always decide to save the episodes that I look mostforward to, for friday nights where I can sit back and watch someamazing anime and well, here we go again. I am looking most forwardto the songs, Mafuyu's voice, and all the incoming BL moments aswell as drama scenes, I love it. 041b061a72
