I would highly recommend "Banana Fish" for the story and the characters, but don't expect this to be a cute story. In fact, it's just tragic but filled with cute moments btw Ash & Eiji. Even though some people may say it's shounen-ai, but I only see pure friendship btw them. ***SPOILERS AHEAD*** Goodbye Ash, you'll be missed...
This anime really hurt me on many levels. As much as I would say it's a beautiful ending, but it's not the perfect ending for Ash & Eiji. They didn't even meet each other for one last time T-T Ash really deserved another chance at life. But then again, he was too strong for too long and he finally had time to rest and not worry about someone coming for his head. I respect his decision. Ash has only been fighting for his freedom. All this while he was forced to live violently in order to survive a war of his own. His decision to die before getting the chance at freedom to live his own life shows that life can never get better for him. He can't overcome his abuse, his pain and deteriorating mental health. He found love with Eiji (I really think their relationship go beyond lovers) and is finally at peace now. Nevertheless, it was an amazing journey!
GAHHH I FEEL LIKE CRYING AGAIN
