Banana Fish Season 2: What Can We Expect From Her?

The second season of Banana Fish is one of the most talked-about anime because fans couldn’t get enough of watching Ash’s adventures. But it’s been two years since the anime came out, and there’s still no news about when the second season might come out. Banana Fish is a manga that was written in 1985, but it wasn’t animated until 2018. This shows that the story is still relevant, even though it was made so long ago. Without further ado, can there be a second season of Banana Fish?

What Was Banana Fish About?

The criminal drama Banana Fish is set entirely in the United States. Ash Lynx, the protagonist, is a fighter with an endearing personality and superhuman strength. At the age of 17, Ash has taken charge of a New York City street gang consisting of youths.

Griffin Callenreese, Ash’s older brother, went insane one night while serving in the US Army during the Vietnam War in 1973, and he started shooting at his squad. The moment he said “Banana Fish,” the youngster fell to the ground. He developed mental disabilities and moved in with his brother Ash in New York City, where he was cared for.

Ash’s life changed when a dying man who had been shot by one of his subordinates gave him a flask of something, an address in California, and the words “Banana Fish” as he passed away. As a result of the source’s curiosity, Ash begins to look into “Banana Fish,” which sets off a series of developments.

What We Can See in Season 2 of Banana Fish?

It doesn’t seem likely that there will be a second season without Ash, who is our major character. So, is Ash gone? Some fans find it hard to comprehend this passing. Even for the writers, such a death is extremely harsh because there was no blood on the ground after being stabbed. A second season might include Ash and Eiji getting back together. These predictions are sadly still incredibly unlikely.

Will There Be a Banana Fish Season 2?

The producers or the studio MAPPA have not yet decided to renew the show for a second season as of September 6, 2022, when this article is being written. As previously established, the anime series Banana Fish is based on manga, and the manga is no longer being updated. With additions like smartphones and the Iraq War, the series’ storyline moves the manga from the 1980s to the 2000s.

Even if this is the case, anime is typically based on manga. This makes me wonder if there will be enough scripts for Season 2. Sadly, there is no positive response to this query. An anime & manga matching chart can be found below, and there have been 19 volumes of the manga published so far.

Additionally, it was implied after Season 1 that Banana Fish Season 2 would not be produced. Five ancillary tales could be developed into a brand-new anime series. The side storylines, though, might not be sufficient for a second season. Instead of a brand-new season, it is more likely that those side storylines will be published as special episodes. We will inform you if there is official news about the anime.
