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.
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,
you are literally Hitler.
Every single week, Bananya manages to make the best of its three minutes by not just focusing on its cuteness factor, but having a coherent storyline and character development as well. Yes, Bananya can do in three minutes every week what overhyped action anime aimed at adults can't manage to do in 23.
After eleven episodes, I feel like I've become part of a new family. A family of bananyas.
Not only is Bananya entertaining, it's soothing. If you're having a bad day, simply turn on your anime-watching device of choice and watch cat-banana adventures. Even though it's a kids' show, it doesn't feel like it's dumbed down or talking down to an older audience at all, and has some jokes that will get more of a laugh out of an older audience (such as a cat being called the "Madonnya of Bananyas" - BTW she's also the best girl of the season).
In conclusion, you have absolutely nothing to lose by watching Bananya. In the time you took to read my crappy review, you could have watched your first episode of Bananya and began your life-altering journey into bananya-hood.
What could I say about this masterpiece that hasn't been said yet?
Some shows are just too good for the human race to apreciate, with that said, bananya is something else than an anime, to the point of being an experience, something you'll only live once in your life, something beatyfull and outstanding.
Story- 10/10: Every episode tells a different story about bananya's crew, focusing in one of the few characters.

Sound- 10/10: All things related to sound, that being, voice acting, sound track and everything else passes the feeling of awesomeness.

the show, something other anime could learn from.
Enjoyment- 10/10: It's impossible to watch bananya without a smile in your face, it's almost a magic feeling.
Overall- 10/10: In the end, bananya is not an anime, bananya is the most incredible experience you'll ever have in your entire life.
MY GOD. This Anime's story is absolutely outstanding. From the very first episode it hooks you in on wonder. Wondering, what is this peculiar Banana-Cat's world like? Later on, as we learn more of these banana-cats exist, our veil of limitation is lifted, because Bananya eventually explores later on, and we learn the lore that this world adds to the story.
In the final episode (aka the best final episode ever written of anything), bananya and his friends help the greedy humans and open their hearts by making a cake for them. In return, the humans help bananya achieve his dream of being a
Some might say the art is garbage (Nobody is happy with anything), some, simplistic. I think is very aesthetic and adorable no matter how you want to rate it. Character design: absolutely gorgeous. Backgrounds: They deserve to be on display in a museum.
I feel like Chopin was revived from the dead to write this series score because, dang. Thats lit.
Bananya is an example of an anime with good character writing. Take a moment to think of an anime with good characters, then toss it out the window because it automatically fails in comparison to Bananya. Bananya is the name we address our mc with, and he dreams of being a chocolate covered banana. He explores this world and his heart is open to the moral that everyone deserves automatic respect, and that he is not alone.
Bananya eventually learns that his so called 'best friend', Calico Bananya, is only acting like his friend to see Bananyako. Bananya's heart is broken like this, and has to rebuild himself and everything he's ever thought about others. This is why Bananya is such a good character.
I very much enjoyed this series. I absolutely enjoyed this series. Please, just watch it. Its adorable and the lore runs deep.
Best anime ever. Please watch it when you get the chance.
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
- Many would takes this as
a con, but I think it was perfect for this one that it had a episode based plotline.
- That ending was interesting!
All the hurtful.... cringe! - The cons
- It is nothing more nor less, don´t expect much.
So yeah should you watch Bananya? Hell yeah especially if you feel down, stressed or anything like it and want to watch some kawaii stuff ^^ It is perfect for those situations
