Banana Fish was a crazy ride and fans couldn’t get enough of Ash’s adventure even after watching it multiple times. Although it has been over 4 years, we haven’t had another season yet.
So, the question is, will there be Banana Fish season 2? Or is Banana Fish season 2 release date confirmed already? In this article, we’ll unveil all the details for you.
Banana Fish Season 2 Release Date!
So far, there is no announcement regarding the release date of Banana Fish season 2 from MAPPA or the Original Creator. Since it has been four years, you might have already thought of abandoning all the hopes.
However, it is not entirely impossible to get another season. For instance, we have seen Classroom of the Elite and The Devil is a Part Timer get a second season even after so many years. So, when will we get Banana Fish season 2? Let us rephrase it: Will there be Banana Fish season 2?
Will There be Banana Fish Season 2?
To determine whether an anime gets another season depends on three main factors: Popularity, Past Performance, and the Source Material.
Popularity: Even considering the top echelon, Banana Fish has unrivaled popularity as it is gaining more fans through years. So, we can say that its popularity is quite sufficient.
Past Performance: It refers to how the anime’s past season(s) performed in sales and views. Although we’re not sure on exact numbers, it is not an exaggeration to say that Banana Fish has a spectacular record in sales.
Source Material: Source Material refers to the source of the anime from where it is adapting the storyline like manga, light novels, and games. In this anime’s case, it is manga.
Unfortunately, there isn’t enough source material to continue the anime, except for an Epilogue “Garden of Light” and a prequel “Angel Eyes.”
Since there isn’t any source material left to continue the story and the creator, Yoshida uttered these words: “I have no interest in writing sequels. Nothing comes to mind.” So, you can pretty much come to a conclusion that there is no hope for Banana Fish season 2.
Banana Fish Manga Continuation After Season 1!
As we mentioned earlier, there is not much manga left to read after completing the anime. It was pretty much a faithful adaptation of the manga. So, you can either read the manga from the beginning or you can catch up with prequel and Epilogue.
- Garden of Light (Epilogue)
- Angel Eyes (Prequel)
If you’re unsure of a source to read the manga, we’ll link it below.
Banana Fish Season 2 Trailer!
Since there is no hope for season 2 and no official confirmation either, you can’t possibly expect there to be a second season’s trailer. So, there is no trailer for Banana Fish season 2 as of now.
However, if through a sheer miracle, we do get a trailer or announcement for the second season, we’ll make sure to update it here.
