On this episode of Manga Mavericks, we invite on Marion Bea to discuss Akimi Yoshida’s hit Shojo manga, Banana Fish! A story that takes place in New York involving gang wars, political corruption, and a whole lot of pain! And even that is just the tip of the iceberg, as the Mavericks do their best to discuss every facet that makes Banana Fish so great, and sometimes not so great. Topics of discussion include how certain demographic labels color people’s opinions of the series, our thoughts on it’s recent anime adaptation, as well as just how much of a time capsule the series is for better or for worse. Enjoy!

About The Author Colton

Colton is just your regular glasses wearing nerd residing in Saint Louis, Misery (that's a joke) who loves reading and collecting manga as a hobby and also records too many podcasts! He started off his podcasting escapades in 2013 when he created Life Lessons: The Gintama Manga Cast, which was a show dedicated to Gintama and its past English release of the manga. From there he became the co-host of shows such as the Manga Corner from Anime3000, Heavenly Kings, One Podcast Prevails and many more. Colton first discovered manga back in 2006 when he bought his first issue of Shonen Jump, and ever since then, his love and passion for manga took off from there! His favorite titles include Sket Dance, Eyeshield 21, My Hero Academia and much, much more. Colton can be found frequenting sites such as Anilist and Twitter under the handle of sniperking323.
