About Banana Fish English Fandub

Hello and welcome everyone! I have decided to produce an English Fandub for the anime Banana Fish! This series is one of the highlights of the anime that premiered in 2018 and has greatly impacted so many people including myself, and yet STILL NO OFFICIAL ENGLISH DUB has been released to this day. That is why I decided to take matters into my own hands and dedicate myself to producing it for this gem of a series!


This will be a big project that will extend over the next few months. It will be demanding but also extremely rewarding as we create something incredible!  

For this project, I do not intend to dub full length episodes, but rather to dub various scenes throughout the series ranging from episodes 1-24 and post them on YouTube. This may change depending on how well the project goes and if we receive enough support. 


Plot Summary:  Cursed by his captivating beauty, Ash Lynx has attracted attention from the wrong crowd for most of his life. When he was still a boy he was taken in by “Papa” Dino of the New York Mafia and forced to live a horrid life. By age 17, he becomes a gang leader and attempts to survive in the crazy streets of downtown New York.  One day the secret that drove Ash’s older brother mad in Vietnam fell into the hands of “Papa” Dino, at the worst possible time when Eiji Okumura, a kind Japanese boy, has a fated encounter with the notorious Ash Lynx. The main plot follows Ash and his friends as they try to figure out what is going on with this mysterious substance. 


The Banana Fish manga written by Akemi Yoshida originally ran from 1985-1994 and is notably one of the most impactful manga of its time and genre. It’s essentially a crossover between shounen and shoujo, giving it a very unique and interesting feel. The story originally took place during the 80s, but the anime adaptation was modernized to the 2010s to give it a more current and hip vibe that resonated better with the newer audience.  

Tags: Action-thriller, adventure, psychological


Warning: This series contains many references to mature themes and topics such as human trafficking, trauma, rape, child pornagraphy, and gang violence. There will also be some use of strong language. If you are interested in being a part of this project, you will need to be comfortable with this type of content. 


Important note: There are a few misconceptions that I would like to take this time to clarify. This series is not a BL or yaoi as you may hear about in various places on the webs. Banana Fish is an action thriller that includes some lgbt themes. In no way does this series glorify the mature topics that it touches upon nor does it fetishize m/m relationships. The themes are represented in a serious manner as the overall tone of this series is mature.


Rules:

You must be 16+ to audition


You must have an XLR mic (I use AT-2035 condenser mic)


You must be ready to commit to this project


You must have Discord. We will use this to keep in contact and up to date with the project.

You must be able to deal with mature, dark scenes (most scenes will be lighter though).

Refrain from starting petty arguments and drama. If you have any issues please discuss it with me before starting drama.


Final notes: If you are interested in being a part of this project and you haven’t already seen Banana Fish I strongly recommend that you watch it. It is such a tragically beautiful story, and it will definitely leave you pondering about this crazy world that we live in. One of my main motivations for starting this project is to help it reach to wider audiences, as it is such a well-crafted work. I hope that it will become something meaningful to others as well. 


If you have any questions at all please contact me either here or on Twitter.


Also I would like to ask those with interest to please help share this page around so that we can build up some excitement and find some really great voice actors for these lovely characters!!


Thank you and good luck with the auditions!


About the Creator: Lida

Hey I'm Lida, I'm a mixer, artist, and script writer. I do some voice acting occasionally but mostly stick to production. I would like to organize new projects and to collaborate with people using this site. I mainly want to create anime fandubs and original projects.
I started mixing a few years back, creating original scripts with the sfx and bgms. Most of my old projects have been in Japanese since I've been interested and studied the language at university and in high school (7 or so years).


This link has some group projects that me and some of my friends created together. 

I did the mixing for a few of these projects, and I also helped with voice directing for each one.
