A Perfect Day for Bananafish is the first episode of the Banana Fish anime.

Synopsis Edit

Ash Lynx, a seventeen year-old leader of a street gang in New York City, is given a street address and a vial of an unknown substance by a mortally wounded man. The man speaks the words “banana fish” before dying — the same last words spoken by Ash’s brother Griffin, an Iraq War veteran who fired on his own squadron under mysterious circumstances, and who is now in a vegetative state. Meanwhile, Eiji Okumura, a Japanese photographer's assistant, arrives in New York to complete a report on street gangs.

Summary Edit

Sometime during the Iraq war, soldiers are talking amongst themselves before a man called Griffin, without warning lifts an assault rifle and shoots into them. After he is incapacitated by his friend Max Lobo, he simply mutters the words "Banana Fish."[1]

Ash Lynx comes across a dying man in an alleyway. He tries to help him before the man uses his final words to tell Ash a street address, and hand him a vial of an unknown substance.[2] Ash is shocked to hear him utter the same nonsensical term "Banana Fish" he has heard before dying.
