This Adorable New Anime Features a Banana Cat

Sometimes the best things are the most impossibly random ones. And “Bananya” is the random cat-banana anime hybrid we never knew we wanted.

Bananya actually started as a design created by Japanese stationary manufacturer Q-lia, and was adapted into an animated show by TMS Entertainment released just this month.

We don’t know much about it, but with descriptions like “Bananya’s dream is to become a stylish chocolate banana,” what we do know is pretty great. Bananya is a mysterious cat who lives in a banana…maybe. The catch is we’ve never seen beneath the peel.

omg look how happy it is

So is Bananya a half-cat, half-banana hybrid? Is Bananya a cat taking refuge in a banana peel? How does he (she?) keep the banana peel from rotting? These are the questions, and probably why Bananya’s peel is so big – it’s full of secrets.

Spoiler alert.

Bananya is also a catnana of secrecy, playing and causing mischief when no one is around – basically the Toy Story of cat-bananas. It’s the most random food-cat hybrid since Nyan cat (we can haz Bananyan cat crossover?) or bread cat. And for that, we thank you, TMS Entertainment. We thank you.
