I’m in Tokyo, this is my first tour. Does anyone know the rail fare from Tokyo to Kobe?

yes, I read it a while ago, the mangaka is good! and the story is interesting. I quite like it. It's sad though

I haven't finished it; it's impossible to find these days. I got the first volume at an anime convention ago, went through what they had at the manga library in a few hours, and haven't been able to find anything since. Perhaps it's for the better if it ends badly, though. Ash had a tough life and I wanted him to be happy.

One of the class BL manga, this is a long series, has a good script, definitely a good read.
However, I don't like its tragic ending.

It's really mild shounen ai but its awesome!
You might think the main character looks a bit ugly at first but he's drawn more beautifully as the manga goes on (not to mention hot!).
I think the mangaka did that on purpose though.

Yeah, it's one of the first "shounen-ai" series to be published in the US. It was first published here under Viz's magazine "Pulp." After Viz stopped publishing, they made it into volumes, and then came the great "flop v. unflopped" debate and they decided to reissue the series. That sucked, because if you were already collecting it, you were pooched and had to start over. Plus, Viz even said they were going to make the translation "better" than before, which REALLY sucked and instigated hatred from long-time manga collectors.

Otherwise, that mangaka is pretty good. The story was really interesting, even if the art was meh. If you can find it, you should totally read it. It's worth it. ;)

Rescued from the Death Ground because yes, I know Banana Fish.  It's a classic and it's awesome.  It's also mild shounen ai with an intricate, mob-dictated plot.

I don't have any scans though, because I own the actual manga volumes.

I modified the second half of the post because that's what caused your thread to be deleted.  Requesting manga=Death.  Just remember that.
