This article was published on November 7, 2018, on AnimeFeminist. Banana Fish was probably the most emotionally exhausting series I have ever read. Despite many painful moments, I was impressed by the immense research Akimi Yoshida did for the series and how she was able to depict how pervasive white supremacy is throughout all sectors of society. However, those historical events depicted in the series can be painful for new QTBIPOC (Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous, People of Color) readers. Please read the original article on AnimeFeminist.

While my name everywhere is ThatNerdyBoliviane, I am also known as Lizzie Visitante. Pronouns: They/Them. I identify as an Queer Quechua (Mestize) person. This blog is mostly dedicated to my rambles on anime, manga and other interests. While I will mostly be gushing about my favorite canon and AU MOGAI couples, my main focus will be a critical intersectional analysis on race, ethnicity, class, gender, queerness, etc. on all things I like.
