Above a nondescript kitchen counter quietly hangs a bunch of ripe, yellow bananas. Suddenly, one of the slender fruits begins to shake, gently at first but slowly increasing in ferocity until it tears itself away from the rest. With a graceful landing, the long and curvy edible gradually rolls back its golden peels, revealing what lies beneath its firm covering to be something unexpected: a cat!

This mysterious feline-fruit hybrid is named Bananya. Carefree and gentle, the adorable creature dreams of one day becoming a luscious bananya bathed in chocolate. Together with his fellow bananya, this kitten cloaked in yellow passes its days without a care in the world, enjoying a rather calm and peaceful existence as it experiences what the world has to offer.

Some anime aren't for everyone.

There are people who really can't stand sports anime. For others fanservice is a turnoff. Some people think that psychological works are too confusing and full of themselves.

And you know what? That's perfectly fine. Everyone has different taste - that's why we have so many different genres and mediums for entertainment. I'm never going to tell someone their taste is bad.

Unless, of course, they don't like Bananya.

You see, Bananya is a universally appealing anime - as in, if you see a slice-of-life comedy about adorable cat banana friends going on adventures, finding love, and chasing their dreams not appealing to you, ...

Bananya is that dosis of cuteness where you might be able to beat your addiction for cat videos. Now wait the characters are cats? But I though they were just talking bananas... I am confused.
Bananya is 95% cuteness and 5% comedy stuff 3 minutes series.
So if you really need that blissfully cuteness of drugs, this would indeed be cocaine of cuteness XD

All the rainbow faeces of the Unicorn - the good things
- Very beautiful simple colorful artstyle. (a more detailed style wouldn´t be fitting, I think)
- I love their Nya sounds, very cute and a good cute ending song

Okay, I'm going to be real. I couldn't even ironically like this.

This anime is a complete waste of time, which is saying a lot since each episode has about 2 minutes worth of content. The entire time, I was bored shitless. My eyes kind of glazed over while watching this. I think the only reason I finished was because it was so short, and because i was hoping that I could find some kind of enjoyment in some other random aspect. Alas, I found none. I couldn't even laugh at the bad flash animation because it was so minimal.

Heck this anime doesn't look like ...
