Banana Fish looks good

So i just came across Banana Fish and thought to myself, “Looks like an interesting title, i wonder is it about a restaurant or something”. But it is not about an restaurant or anything remotely about cooking or catching fish and its nothing about bananas either.

Well i it is about an American Gang and more particularly about one guy named Ash, who is adopted by a crime lord to be nurtured to become a cold-blooded killer.

Synopsis:Nature made Ash Lynx beautiful; nurture made him a cold ruthless killer. A runaway brought up as the adopted heir and sex toy of “Papa” Dino Golzine, Ash, now at the rebellious age of seventeen, forsakes the kingdom held out by the devil who raised him. But the hideous secret that drove Ash’s older brother mad in Vietnam has suddenly fallen into Papa’s insatiably ambitious hands—and it’s exactly the wrong time for Eiji Okamura, a pure-hearted young photographer from Japan, to make Ash Lynx’s acquaintance…

From the synopsis this anime feels like its gonna be dark and more action focused, yeah it is kind of dark but the animation style is not really making the atmosphere for me. By no means it is bad, it is quite good and fitting for this anime………..but i was expecting something like ’91 days’ style of animation.

I had heard about Banana Fish prior to the anime. There is a completed Manga which people can go and read it. This manga had released way back in 1985 and ran through till 96′. So the animation actually kind of stay’s true to the manga’s art-style.

I am really interested in the story but not gonna read the manga though, i am gonna watch the anime.(weekly updates and overviews)

I find all of the character in the anime very interesting and i am really happy that a different kind of anime has come up. It is quite refreshing in my opinion and i can finally get back to watching some anime. From what i have heard it has a amazing story, so that’s good to know.

Banana-FishThis animation style reminds me of early 2000’s and 05′ anime like Red Garden and some other.

UN-GO(my thoughts)

So a while back i wrote about the review of the first two episode, but now as i have watched all the 11 episodes i am writing a bit more detailed review.

First few episodes literally bored me, the mystery were to simple to solve and the cases were just to boring, but as the story progresses all the episodes and the certain mystery they had, they all start making sense(not 100% though).

It is tagged as a supernatural anime but the supernatural aspect of the anime is kept to a bare minimum. I think the anime is more psychological at the end. So it is actually worth watching till the end.

The op and Ed are good but not anything special, Voice acting is decent too.

Art-style is modern and normal nothing to weird or different.

Overall i’ll say it is worth the watch….

UN-GO(Episode 1&2 review)

So i have been searching for some short crime,drama anime and came across this one.      lets read the synopsis:

In a dystopian future, detective Shinjuurou Yuuki—known by some as the “Defeated Detective”—solves mysteries throughout Tokyo. Aided by his odd associate Inga, Shinjuurou’s insight and ingenuity in cracking cases, particularly homicides, lead to numerous mysteries solved and culprits caught. However, his partner seems to have some other, more sinister intentions for the people they catch, and the truth of the assistant’s identity and motivation is shrouded in secrecy.

Well i have watched the first two episodes and found the plot and story lukewarm,the cases did not feel really tough. I don’t assume if an anime is good or not just by its few episode, so i went online and checked for some information about the anime and for my surprise the anime has an average rating of 7. Now 7 is not a really strong rating but enough for me to continue watching it. Right now i am watching this as a side-anime,so i wont be finishing it anytime soon. I went through some of the reviews and found people saying that, the show has a bad start but actually gets really good at the end.

The anime review will be up in a few days.
