Synopsis

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... 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.

It's a cat! No- it's a banana, It's Bananya! The utterly adorable kitty who is inside a banana.

Story (9):

The story follows the adventures of Bananya and his friends and family. Each episode is a whole lot of fun, possible a bit cliche, but undeniably enjoyable. Although, please keep in mind that this is a kids show so it is not for everyone. There are no evil characters or sinister companies, deep plot twists or fight scenes, it is just pure fun that can be watched by people of all ages.

Art (10):

The art is absolutely adorable! The color palate is bright and colorful, the animation smooth, read more

Warning:
Possible spoilers

Go watch it and then come back here. You won't believe the glory of this anime and you shan't be able to get trough this review without finishing the whole series.
Bananya, the Citizen Kane of anime. Now you'd say nah no way this anime is for little kids and mentally handicapped, also known as American college students. To that I have to say you are dead wrong. Behind the simplistic premise hides a huge amount of intrigues and mysteries.

Art.
Art looks like it's drawn with crayons. Now you might think it's just shitty art or maybe they didn't have enough money to animate it read more

Just a simple review!
This is a short anime with each episode of not more than 3 to 4 min max. Like the poster shows its about a cat in a banana. RIP logic. Coz it's bananya.

What more will make us happy than an epidode of 3 minutes with an abundance of kawaiiness and an amazing art!

Don't expect a story outta this anime. It's just a great entertainment. No matter how mature you are this anime can bring out the soft kawaii side out of you. If not then watch it with a kid. If it still doesn't work then may be it's just read more

Sorry for the spoilers ahead of time.
The main character plot development is that Bananya is actually a cat inside a banana. One of the best animes I seen so light hearted. Imagine watching innocent happy puella medoka magika without the "plot".

This is the perfect show to watch when you are feeling under the weather. It doesnt have a political message or any reason but to entertain and make you happy.

The have little misadventures here and there or have spats. No overlining story each episode is its own plot. From being comfortable with the temperature to finding a place to hang out.
