Manga 'Banana Fish' is getting a TV anime adaptation to be broadcasted on Fuji TV. Coming for 2018.
Studio is MAPPA.

Plot


Nature made Ash Lynx beautiful; nurture made him a cold ruthless killer. A runaway brought up as the adopted heir and sex toy of "Papa" Dino Golzine, Ash, now at the rebellious age of seventeen, forsakes the kingdom held out by the devil who raised him. But the hideous secret that drove Ash's older brother mad in Vietnam has suddenly fallen into Papa's insatiably ambitious hands--and it's exactly the wrong time for Eiji Okamura, a pure-hearted young photographer from Japan, to make Ash Lynx's acquaintance...

Seeing that this is on Fuji TV, it looks like it will be coming in the Summer 2018 on Noitamina.

Given their lineup, that would make sense.

I saw the title and thought this was related to Bananya. I'm surprised to see MAPPA animating a manga from the 80's. Then again, Madhouse did make the Parasyte anime.

This is something I did not expect. Alot of good talent behind it too.

Maybe my dream of a Lucifer and Biscuit Hammer anime adaption is possible.

NYC gangs, NYPD and an MC that perks my interest. If referenced titles of previous works are an indicator (Free!, Yuri on Ice), there may be a fan service angle they'll be working.

Yeah this seems like it could be big, which means Crunchyroll won't get it. smh

Yep, Prime got it

And in case you missed it, this show is going to be two cours. This is the first show to span two cours since Noitamina cut back to one show in 2015. Considering how rich the story is that it's going to need it.
