Banana Fish

Dec 3, 2021

I first watched the anime prior to reading the manga, and both are excellent. Personally, I would recommend reading the manga first and then watching the anime. Since the manga is how the Banana Fish story was meant to be told, you also get to see the growth of the supporting characters since many of their scenes were either cut or reduced significantly. I also suggest reading the side stories to give the main storyline more depth and to complete the emotional journey. Sexual assault, child photography/rape, sex trafficking, trauma, violence, death, murder, guns, firearms, gang warfare, drugs, and racism... See full review
