About the Manga


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...

Epic in scope, and one of the best-selling shojo titles of all time in Japan, Akimi Yoshida put an electric shock into the genre and gained a huge crossover audience through Banana Fish's stripped-down, non-stop style.

#bananafish themed #crossstitch #sampler 🍌🐟 I had so much fun designing this pattern. Thinking back at this amazing story to come up with objects and designs associated with the two main characters was so fulfilling. The pattern is pretty self-explanatory but maybe I should point out that the tartan pattern below Eiji's strip is from Ash's outfit when he's out feeding squirrels. As is the one below it with diamond and triangle shapes—remember Ash's “Chris Winston” knit sweater? And finally, the palm tree and leaves strip below it is my attempt to replicate Eiji's famous “off-the-shoulder” hawai shirt pattern🗽🌆🌭🗻🐆📚 @vizmedia #welovebananafish #ashlynx #eijiokumura #asheiji #バナナフィッシュ #アッシュリンクス #奥村英二 #A英
