    What the FUCK

    **MASSIVE TRIGGER WARNING AS ALWAYS. STAY SAFE.**

    I can say without a doubt this is the single most disgusting thing I've ever read and I've never been so conflicted about a fucking book in my life. I'm at a loss of words.

    And boy, am I conflicted, because this is the best volume so far and I can't bring myself to give it less than 5 stars, even if I normally would give it 4.

    Now if you excuse me, I haven't yet processed this so I'll just read the fluffiest thing I lay my hands on and curse my life choices, probably.

    4.5/5 stars. These volumes are really picking up for me. The tension is really growing. I have a feeling and know that things are about to go south real quick. Again, there’s really heavy topics mentioned and discussed in this manga.

    Max telling Michael to go with “Uncle Ash” made me want to cry. Max and Jessica have a moment after she smacks the absolute hell out of him.

    Yut Lung gives Ibe this tea which makes him collapse, then he has the damned audacity to paralyze Eiji, to take his vision, auditory senses, and motion through acupuncture... BOI IF YOU DONT LET MY BEST BOI GO-
    Ibe can see and hear, he just can’t move... so that’s great. He’s really out here testing me, how dare he.
    Shorter apologizes and promises Ibe to protect Eiji with his life... he wasn’t kidding when he said this, and that hurts.

    Ash catches on to the betrayal and literally yeets back to the house, there he finds Ibe and tries to go to Chinatown, Ibe is barely able to stop him. Can we talk about how Ash was like where’d they take Eiji. Like the exact thing he didn’t want, was what happened. And now Arthur is threatening to sell Eiji out to Golzine to get revenge on Ash.
    First of all, Golzine can get his crusty nasty ass hands off Eiji.
    Second of all, Arthur can keep his negative hateful energy away from my innocent sweet boi Eiji.
    Can we just appreciate how much Shorter is protecting Eiji. His loyalty. His dedication. His hard work. His undying protection. Stan Shorter. He also promises Eiji to kill him before Golzine can even touch him. Which, can I just say I wanna die a lil’ because this makes me so emo.

    Back in Dawson’s home, he actually makes an appearance. Ash finds out he made Banana Fish and has a secret room where most of the secrets of Banana Fish are hidden. Dawson reveals that the drug always sends people into bad trips, no matter their state of mind, which works as a perfect weapon. His brother Abraham, sent a batch of Banana Fish and tested it on the soldiers in Vietnam I gliding Ash’s brother. Now the bigger conspiracy kicks in, Abraham wants to sell Banana Fish vía the mafia to the U.S government. With this, they could make all hell break loose. Max and Ibe all got a shot at hitting a solid punch at Dawson for even leaving a trace of that drug.

    When I saw Golzine I immediately went: Disgotan! We all love the trust Eiji has in Shorter.

    When I saw the experiment room and Shorter... I wanted to scream because I’m afraid. They really brought in Eiji to see as Shorter is experimented on. Earlier Dawson said that a person who’s had Banana Fish, if given orders like kill so and so or every last this or that, they’d obey. Guess where this is going? Shorter is told that Eiji is his worst fear, that the only way to be free is to kill him. Eiji is crying, I’m just about ready to cry, everyone who’s read this, is in pain.

    It was absolutely disgusting how calmly Golzine talked about how the lighter the blond hair, the rarer the green eyes, the higher the price for a boy. Golzine and his whole group is sick. Not that I didn’t know this already, but god.
    I think this is a perfect chance to discuss something important.
    Something I respect about this particular manga is that rape isn’t glamorized or seen as this acceptable thing. It is rightfully depicted as a terrible thing, which it is. It shows the darkness and vileness, as well as bringing light to the fact that young boys can and are also sold off into sex-slavery. Basically I like that in Banana Fish rape is rightfully depicted in a bad light and it isn’t strewn in roses and glitter. It doesn’t take the subject lightly.

    There was also the scene when Yut Lung is talking calmly about sleeping with Golzine, and Eiji is surprised at his indifference to doing things like hurting Ash, making Shorter betray Ash, and trying to hurt Eiji. While I feel pity for him, I am upset with his behavior. But I feel like he had no one there to stop him from being evil to hold him back from giving up in himself. I want to see more on his backstory, what really happened that made him so heartless. He is treated as this thing that gets sent around as a gift by his older brother. And he mentioned revenge on his mother’s death. I want to see the dots connected. Why he follows orders when he could rebel like Ash himself did.

    Anyway, that was one hell of a cliffhanger. And I know exactly where the next volume is headed... I’m not sure if I’m ready for that. But anyway time to read the next volume, I’ll probably be in tears or something but it’s aight. It’s what I signed up for when I decided to read this manga.

    BACKCOVER BLURB
    The place was New York City; the time was the city's violent 1980s. Corsican crime lord "Papa" Dino Golzine took in runaway Ash Lynx as a boy, abusing him sexually even while grooming him as the heir to his empire. Ash rebelled, gathering his own gang of young street thugs, loyal to Ash's intelligence, charisma and deadly aim. Ash's uneasy truce with his "mentor" shattered over Dino's plot to exploit the same nightmarish drug that drove Ash's late brother Griff mad in Vietnam — a drug code-named "Banana Fish."
    After a failed attempt to kill Golzine, Ash flees to Los Angeles with a small group of allies: Griff's old army buddy-turned-reporter Max Lobo, Japanese photographer Ibé and his ward Eiji, and Chinese gangbanger Shorter Wong. Looking for Alexis and Abraham Dawson – the brother scientists who synthesized "Banana Fish," the fugitives find neither, but foil a plot at Dawson's residence to kidnap his Chinese adopted son, Yau-Si. Lobo and Ash encounter evidence that Dino's plans for the drug involve the cooperation of high-ranking members of the U.S. government. But the Corsican mafioso has many more partners in this scheme ready to strike — including the epicene young assassin who calls himself Yau-Si . . .

    Following the last volume, Max get a call from his wife. She is hold hostage by Lee’s gangsters. Max & Ash drives to the rescue, only to arrives when the police is already there.
    Ut-Lung use this moment to drug Ibe and kidnap Eiji. Shorter have no choice to obey, but swore to protect the young Japanese man.
    Ash realize that this was a set-up. We meet Alexis Dawson, the doctor who invented Banana Fish and finally found out what the drug is capable of (and trust me, it is horrible.) The gang get drag back to New-York by “China-town”.
    Eiji, now in Golzine’s hand, cannot believe that Shorter could betray them. The gangster is use as an experiment for the improved version of Banana Fish. We do not see the full effect, but this look bad.
    There is a harsh scene between Yut-Lung & Eiji where prostitution is mark as “not a big deal” if this is for survival. This make me quite uncomfortable. And Dino’s whole speech toward Ash during the dinner is quite sick. This truly despise this guy.
    Things are not looking good at all for the gang with Ash chain-up and Shorter becoming crazy. I am not looking forward to the next book and expect a lot of pain. Why I am doing this to myself?
