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.

Hunter X Hunter(An overview)

If you are familiar with the anime world many people consider Dragon ball, Naruto and One Piece as the holy grail of Shounen anime/ manga many forget about a gem called Hunter x Hunter. This is an anime which is respected by it’s viewers and has been liked by everyone who has watched it. But a lot of time people hesitate to start a new series which is about 150 episode long. I am here to clear your hesitation about this wonderful anime that is Hunter x Hunter.

-What is the anime about?

Hunter x Hunter is set in a world where Hunters exist to perform all manner of dangerous tasks like capturing criminals and bravely searching for lost treasures in uncharted territories. Twelve-year-old Gon Freecss is determined to become the best Hunter possible in hopes of finding his father, who was a Hunter himself and had long ago abandoned his young son. However, Gon soon realizes the path to achieving his goals is far more challenging than he could have ever imagined.

Along the way to becoming an official Hunter, Gon befriends the lively doctor-in-training Leorio, vengeful Kurapika, and rebellious ex-assassin Killua. To attain their own goals and desires, together the four of them take the Hunter Exam, notorious for its low success rate and high probability of death. Throughout their journey, Gon and his friends embark on an adventure that puts them through many hardships and struggles. They will meet a plethora of monsters, creatures, and characters—all while learning what being a Hunter truly means.

-How is it different then other shounen?

-So Hunter x Hunter on surface looks really fun and colorful anime but it is something really really worse than that.(wont tell more because i don’t wanna spoil)

-What sets this apart?

– So a lot of times we expect something to happen in a certain way, but what if something exactly different happens? This is what Hunter x Hunter is all about, you can never anticipate things.

-what do i like in the anime?

The plot development is really good, the character development is on a complete different level. The most important are the villains in the anime, Hunter x Hunter is home to some of the most ruthless and gruesome villains i have ever seen. The arc’s in the anime are really good too.

This is the reason why everyone should at least once watch Hunter x Hunter.

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….

My 5 Favorite Full Metal Alchemist Characters

So i recently completed watching FMA:Brotherhood, i know it is really late but i finally finished watching it. Actually i flipped a coin one side being Monster and other FMA & the result was Monster so i watched it first and took a break from Anime overall and now i have returned to watch more masterpieces. I am not really fond of any new anime other then these slice of comedy and light hearted anime which are just 12 episode long. Actually if there is a new anime which is really worth watching do tell me.

I am not gonna review FMA because it is straight up good and has been reviewed over a thousand time and is sitting on top of the “all time best anime list” on  myanimelist.

This post might contain Spoilers.

 

5.  Greed (ling Yao)

Now i am gonna be honest here, the first greed that i saw acted like a asshole but even the first greed had a good side to him which i guess stays consistent. Out of all the homunculus he is the only nice guy(well he is bad but not as bad as others).                 The second greed(ling yao) just wanted friends, that is not a sign of a bad person.

4. Scar

I know scar tried to kill the brothers but he was filled with rage and wanted justice for his people. I just like him he is the villain who has turned into a good person(Cough*Saiyan prince*Cough).

3. Roy Mustang

He is a total badass uses fire and is a respectable commander. He also burned down a homunculus. He is just the character that everyone likes.

2. Envy(inner envy)

I hate him but, the actual envy who committed suicide actually left me a bit teary eyed. It was satisfying see him die but the way it happened was quite sad. That makes me think, he is the most saddest homunculus he was always envious of humans. I know he killed Hughes but there is something about him that just doesn’t let me forget him.

i actually like this Envy(true form)

1. King Bradley

He is my personal favorite. He wields two sword and is to strong even in his almost old age, he is not a homunculus technically, he is like mostly human with an special eye which is the only thing that suggests that he is a homunculus. Well he was trained for that purpose so he is on their side. That last fight was actually amazing.

P.S.

I know this list does not have Edward and Alphonse i like them and all but these are the characters that i feel really stood out …
