One of the cuter short-form series of the last few years that has made big inroads in the merchandising market is Bananya. While Discotek Media picked up the home video rights for it, we learned last month that a second series is coming and that it’s bringing back the main staff and that Crunchyroll was going to bring it out with a premiere date of October 1st, 2019. Crunchyroll has now updated by dropping a subtitled version of the main teaser for it which is definitely delightful.

The project is from TMS Entertainment and Gathering with Kyo Yatate directing it and working on the scripts. Jun Mita served as the animation director for it. Yuuki Kaji took on the titular role in it as well.
Plot Concept: Bananya is a mysterious cat who hides inside a banana. Bananya lives undercover inside a real banana, and no-one has ever seen the part covered by banana skin… When nobody is around, Bananya secretly plays and creates mischief. Bananya likes to play and eat sweet things. Bananya’s dream is to become a stylish chocolate banana.
