Yūki Kaji, Ayumu Murase reprise roles in 2nd TV anime from Gathering

The official website for Q-LiA's Bananya banana cat mascot character announced on Wednesday that a new television anime, Bananya: Fushigi na Nakamatachi (Bananya: Wondrous Friends), will air this fall.

Bananya is a mysterious catlike creature born from a banana tree. The character already received a five-minute anime series that ran on Teletama (TV Saitama) and Sun TV from July 2016 to September 2016. For the new series, Yūki Kaji and Ayumu Murase are reprising their roles of Bananya and various other characters from that previous series.

Kyō Yatate (Sockie's Frontier Quest) is also returning to direct the anime at the studio Gathering again in collaboration with TMS Entertainment. Masahiro Takata (Super Seisyun Brothers director, scriptwriter). is writing the scripts again. Nobuyuki Abe is back as the sound director, and Akiyuki Tateyama is now the musical composer.

Q-LiA launched the Bananya mascot character in 2015. Crunchyroll streamed the first television anime as it aired, and Discotek released it on Blu-ray Disc and DVD with an English dub last summer.
