Note: This review is part of the "Before Redemption" review series. This is Part A of the final day and contains no spoilers.
Bananya is a 12-episode short series on a cat whose species is part banana and the group of friends and relatives that live with him. Need I say more?
Storyline The episodic antics that Bananya and pals do get into are very cute and mischevious. The introductions to the cast on the first two episodes along with the everything else onwards were well done and the same goes with the end result considering that you remember one of the Bananya's true goals.
Characters The meat and pota- I mean chocolate and sprinkles of this series. Everyone looks very cute without even trying and are also likable and entertaining to watch. My two favorites are Bananya himself and Black Bananya even though there isn't a soul that I hated out of this show. Not even the mouse.
Pros and Cons The art style and animation happen to be excellent and fitting to the show. The one music theme the show has is kind to the ears and also fits like a glove. The humor that is about happens to have more hits than misses despite some of it being a tad rude.
Those that aren't into short form episodes or cats in general will have to skip this show. It's also best not to take this show seriously at all. (Then again, who would take this seriously?) My only true gripe about this show was that the cute factor was milked a bit too much even though I thought it could get away with it as a legitimate family show.
Final Verdict This is a 9/10 to me. I'll only recommend this just for those that want a break from anything dark that they're watching to recover before heading back into the abyss or to those that just want to see a cat do some darn cute things to brighten up their day.
Current Situation: I wanted another excuse to use Enterprise as an avatar again.
Old Man Dream: ...later titles in the Macross franchise can finally come stateside with all involved parties finally coming to a truce over how to handle things with the Macross trademark and all later anime in the franchise associated with it.

Taka: I see. A global release will benefit it. Gundam did pretty good. The only few franchises that are only popular in Japan but not popular in the west - Yokai Watch comes to mind.

Master Menos: F for Respects. DMX did all his work while suffering from a drug addiction, and I almost never knew until a point. I hope his next life treats him far better.

Taka: No worries, health, family, school, and work take priorities first.
