Amazon, Anime, and Ash: Banana Fish master post bananafishrepublic: With the popularity of the upcoming anime, I decided to make a master post for fans new and old, as well as for those who are curious about the series! What is Banana Fish?Banana Fish is a manga series by Akimi Yoshida. Originally published in 1985, it follows the story of Ash Lynx, a charismatic gang leader, as he grapples with figuring out the mystery of “banana fish” that turns his life upside down. The story also centers around the close relationship between Ash Lynx and Eiji Okumura, a young Japanese photographer’s assistant who came to New York to photograph the city, but ends up getting caught up in Ash’s violent life. DISCLAIMER: Banana Fish is definitely not for everyone. Some of the topics Banana Fish deals with are violence, drugs, rape, pedophilia, child abuse, gang warfare, racism, prostitution, and death. None of the sexual content is shown explicitly. I recommend not investing in this series if these topics make you uncomfortable. Manga - The main story consists of 19 volumes. VIZ Media licensed a english translation in 1999-2002, with flipped L to R pages and censored dialogue. VIZ later released a full re-translation of the series of all 19 volumes. Both have since been out of print. Can be read in full here, in English.The manga is also getting a gorgeous box edition which can be found on Amazon. (Japanese only)  Side stories - An extra volume, titled Banana Fish: Another Story consists of five side stories that take place before and after the events in the main story. Highly recommended to read after you finish the main story. Raws  Angel Eyes -prequel that tells the story of how Ash and Shorter met. Included in VIZ’s translation of Banana Fish. The Garden with Holy Light - Epilogue to Banana Fish. Included in VIZ’s translation of Banana Fish.Private Opinion - Prequel that tells the story of how Ash and Blanca first met. Untranslated.Fly boy, in the sky - Prequel that tells the story of how Eiji and Ibé met. Untranslated. Ura Banana - Short, comedic story about Ash and Eiji discussing fan mail with Akimi Yoshida. Untranslated. Media  Anime- A Banana Fish anime is in the works! Set to premier July 2018, it is being produced by the studio MAPPA and will consist of 24 episodes. The biggest change will be that the story is set to modern day. You can find more information here on ANN. (Will update this section when we get closer to the date)Radio drama - A radio drama for Banana Fish was produced in 1996. @bananafishlovers was kind enough to compile the drama CDs into a playlist which can be found here. Untranslated, but you can follow along with the audio if you have the manga close by.Stage adaption - A stage adaption for Banana Fish was produced in 2012. Very hard to find outside of Japan, here’s a preview  (Warning: stage silliness)Asrun Dream - A song from the album Mars by Gackt. In an interview with Akimi Yoshida, “Asrun Dream is an older song of his [Gackt], inspired by Banana Fish. He said that when he wrote it, he imagined Eiji asleep in bed while Ash looks out the window to the night sky.” (lyrics + source)ExtrasAngel Eyes - Not related to the side story of the same name, Angel Eyes was a Banana Fish art book by Akimi Yoshida. The short story, That Summer, is also included in the art book. You can read it here and here You can find copies of the book on Amazon or on Japanese bidding sites, but please be warned that the price for it has skyrocketed since it is a rare book. Banana Fish REBIRTH - Official guide book to Banana Fish. This book includes an extensive analysis on the story and characters, and the setting of New York City. Harder to find than Angel Eyes, but also just as crazy expensive.I hope this covers everything. If you have any questions, suggestions, or corrections, let me know! I’ll also be updating this post as more information about Banana Fish is released.

Bailey Jay, College, and Hillary Clinton: Bloomberg Business @business Follow "I don't believe in free college": Hillary Clinton during #DemDebate bloom.bg/1 K1JVXR RETWEETS L 136 LIKES twinfantasy: graceebooks: foreverthesoniag: lagonegirl: Of course you don’t. Free college might hinder the school-to-prison pipeline your  prison owning donors depend on !!!!!!! “Clinton would create a grant program available to states that set tuition levels so that students could graduate without having to take out loans in order to afford it. She believes tuition should be set so that students and families don’t have to borrow in order to pay a cost that’s beyond their means, but that it’s not unreasonable to ask families to pay a price they can afford for higher education. ‘I don’t believe in free tuition for everybody,’ Clinton said Saturday. ‘I believe we should focus on middle-class families, working families and poor kids who have the ambition and the talent to go to college and get ahead.’” in other words, make rich people pay for college instead of raising taxes more on everyone just wanted to note that op was one of the URLs listed as a russian state-sponsored disinformation account - this was a single sentence taken entirely out of context that garnered 200,000 notes, and i’d guess that the majority of the reblog chains weren’t accompanied by any corrections like the one above.

Confederate Flag, Memes, and South Park: South Park Will Tackle White Supremacy In Season 21 Premiere @balleralert MA PARK COUNTY COURTHOUSE South Park Will Tackle White Supremacy In Season 21 Premiere- blogged by @niksofly ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Wednesday, the 13th of September, the politically correct (and sometimes incorrect) animated series, SouthPark, will return for its 21st season. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The season kicks off with a huge bang and timely address of the political climate within the United States. The premiere will address the terrorism that occurred in Charlottesville, VA. The episode is described as "Protestors armed with tiki torches and confederate flags take to the streets of South Park. Randy comes to grips with what it means to be white in today’s society." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Officially titled "White People Renovating Houses", the season's first episode reflects on Charlottesville as animated white supremacists walk down the Colorado town changing "you will not replace us". The theme of white supremacy continues in a different scene when a band of white nationalists appear in court. At every chance the nationalists received, they wave the confederate flag.
