Average Rating

Aslan Jade Callenreese, known as Ash Lynx, was a runaway picked off the streets of New York City and raised by the infamous godfather of the mafia, Dino Golzine. Now 17 years old and the boss of his own gang, Ash gets his hands on a mysterious drug called "Banana Fish"—the same two words his older brother, Griffin, has muttered since his return from the Iraq War. However, his investigation is hindered when Dino sends his men to retrieve the drug from Ash at an underground bar he uses as a hideout. At the bar, Skip, Ash's friend, introduces him to Shunichi Ibe and his assistant, Eiji Okumura, who are Japanese photographers reporting on American street gangs. However, their conversation is interrupted when Shorter Wong, one of Ash's allies, calls to warn him about Dino. Soon, Dino's men storm the bar, and in the ensuing chaos kidnap Skip and Eiji. Now, Ash must find a way to rescue them and continue his investigation into Banana Fish, but will his history with the mafia prevent him from succeeding?

Guns, Gangs, Goons and Gays. My type of 4G.


This show isn’t about bananas or fish is it?


What if Grand Theft Auto turned into anime?

🌌 宇宙キャプテン・ナーガ🚀

It’s gay gangstas mainstream-ized 4 regular audiences! And one of those Anime you can like without being into BL urself. Good comedy/action.


You don’t finish this anime. This anime finishes you.


It hurts. Everything hurts.


As of EP 9: not even halfway done and the pain this has given me is extreme, holy shit that wrecked me. And it only gets worse from here.
