Is this show actually bl or is it implied bl or is it just queerbaiting?
>>
>>3220368
Seems like it's actually gay for real, at least the manga is.
>>

I'm going to go with option 3 since that's 99% of all shows that get homo fanart
>>
>>3220368
If you don't mind spoilers: the two leads have a very close relationship but nothing ever gets confirmed in the main story. In the epilogue one of then acknowledges he might have been in love with the other guy but the other guy is already dead.

Fingers crossed it's canon gay in the anime since we need more main gay couples besides yuri and victor.

To me they're exacly on the same level of canon as Victor and Yuuri. You don't get it spelled right at your face and we don't see them straight up fucking, but you'd need to be pretty delusional or a hetfag do deny it.
I was hoping maybe the anime could be more daring but we must remember it's Utsumi on the direction and she did nothing but play it safe while working on Free!
At least Eiji looks cute on the anime design.

Ash calls Eiji a faggot in the manga when he's worried for him.
It's old fashioned queerbating.
My advice is to watch it if you like action and gangsters, not for the gay. Sadly the 80s atmosphere is gone, the author put so much dedication to it and it was what contributed to make the manga a masterpiece.
>>

I'm surprised that there seems to be a considerable amount of people here who have never heard of it. I know it's an old manga and all but I thought everybody who cared about faggotry had read this at least 5 years ago already.

it's based off of a mid 80's shoujo manga. Apparently in the source materials the main characters are heavily implied to be romantically involved, but it's not the focus and isn't ever quite explicitly stated.

Who knows how much liberties they'll take with the original story, but I expect it'll end up somewhere between Tales of Zestiria, where the main characters are very close but their relationship remains unclear until they were declared to be romantically involved by word of god, and No.6 where the main characters were obviously romantically involved but it's never quite stated overtly(at least in the anime).

Still, from the trailers it looks great. Looking forward to it no matter what.

It's been so long since I read this manga that I forgot about this. Hard pass on reliving that experience. Although I'm morbidly excited to watch the fandom fall apart if the anime ends the same way.

Didn't Utsumi say she didn't change anything of the original? The only difference is the modern setting.
>>
>>3221519
You can't really change the 80's setting without changing a fuckton of things, though. Banana Fish isn't exactly timeless.
>>

>>3221560
In this vein, I've felt for awhile like having gay stories where one of them dies at the end is kind of past its time. I'd prefer to see BL stories where they actually make things work, rather than end tragically. It is possible to live happily as a gay person in many parts of the world now and it's tiresome to continue seeing the narrative of suffering gays.

I know they will most likely keep the gay subtle like the manga but I fear they will latch onto the YoI trend and make it less implicit, and that's going to fuck up a lot of people if they keep that original ending. Honestly kind of hope they downplay the gay. Personal opinion.

First episode in a few hours, fags
>>3221785
I don't care really for the original ending because since the very begining, the manga does give you the impression that things are doomed and they aren't going to end well, a feeling that only become bigger as the story progresses. It wasn't out of nowhere. Banana Fish just happens to be, at its core, a very tragic story, and it also happened to be adapted into anime in a time where people are starving for lighthearted fun such as YOI. It might not click well for some but to me it doesn't change anything on the overall quality of the show. I won't complain if they decide to change the ending though.
>>
>>3221785
Most BL manga is happy SOL shit anyway. Stop parroting the self-victimizing garbage you read on twitter/tumblr and let fiction be whatever it wants to be.
>>
>>3221857
Most BL doesn't get an anime. YoI only did because it pretended to be a sports anime with fanservice like Free. And I'm not parroting, this is how I've felt for a long time before Tumblr started saying any of it. The feeling clarified for me when Brokeback Mountain came out and I saw it in theaters. Happy endings are default in straight romance, but tragic endings are default in homosexual ones. I'm tired of the implication that gay stories are only worthwhile or important or real art when they end in tragedy.
>>
Damn, first episode was surprisingly good, I'm hype now.
>>
>>3222024
>YoI only did because it pretended to be a sports anime with fanservice like Free
YoI is a sport anime through and through, what the hell, if anything it has too much sport.
>>
>>3220390
Yeah, I was disappointed when people keep parroting it as a gay love story. SURPRISE SURPRISE the only confirmed gays are ALL the pedos and rapist. I think the main author even said something along the lines of "It wasn't my intention to make them a romantic" or something.
>>

>I was hoping maybe the anime could be more daring but we must remember it's Utsumi on the direction and she did nothing but play it safe while working on Free!
You act like directors can make it gay even if they want. It's nowhere near gay as YoI too.

You mean just like Kubo said Victor and Yuuri's rings were buddy rings?
>>
>>3222275
That's not even remotely the same thing. Have you even read Banana Fish? Characters have gay panic moments with "Ahah, do you want to see my dick? What a fag!" and shit like that.

YoI does everything straight couples do in anime and more, the only difference is because it's homo people apply double standards to it and assume "it's bait" and the director had to fight the staff to insert a censored gay kiss.
>>
>>3222275
If you want to bring this shit up again know that the original text had the katakana for "partner", it was translated as buddies by an infamous fan translator who often downplayed the gay.
That being said, this polemic is fruitless.

Nip and Blondie's relationship is so contrived. They've known each other for less than a day. This is supposed to be 24 episodes and they just skipped over the character development as if there was no time.

They honestly don't have much of a relationship to speak of yet, outside of Ash having a quiet moment with an outsider his age, and Eiji sympathizing too hard to ask him for a favor for the cops. Ash saving him was fairly established by his anger toward Dino for having the youth gangs involved in murders.
That said, it's too long a manga to neatly fit into 24 episodes, so there are going to be some pacing problems. I'm not surprised if it feels rushed right now. But if they reach their soulmate status without any of the good development, it'll be a huge problem.
