Cat doughnut. Cat banana. I'm sure you see the similarity. Both of these short anime follow the silly and cute adventures of a part cat, part food character.

If you like anime about cats that are food too look no further than these 2 amazing titles. Sure to please the cat and food lover in you!

sothis sothis says...

Cats as food - what's not to like? There isn't much of a plot with these two, and the similarities are fairly obvious. 

hamletsmage hamletsmage says...

Do you like cats? Do you like food? Do you think you need more of the two combined? With Bananya, you have banana-cats, with Donyatsu, you have pastry-cats. Both are short episode animes that detail the daily adventures of the food-cats. If you liked one, you'll like the other. So go watch them right meow... (I couldn't resist the pun)

Rohjake Rohjake says...

Both of these shows have really short episodes and feature hybrids of food and cats.

Of these two, Bananya is more cutesy while Donyatsu is a tad more comedic.

Nyanpire The Animation

Nyanpire The Animation

Tiny, abandoned Nyanpire would have died when he was the kitten if not for the help of a kind stranger… a stranger that happened to be a blood-sucking vampire! Bringing the feline back to life with a few drops of his blood, the man then vanished, leaving Nyanpire to fend for himself. Now, the whimsical kitty lives with Misaki as her housecat, and spends every moment of the day figuring out a new way to find or beg for blood, even if it means turning to a friend such as the samurai Masamunya or angel Nyantenshi!

Karasune Karasune says...

Another unusual cat anime. Nyanpire features the hijinx of cat vampires, Bananya goes for cat bananas. They're both short and very cute, making them an easy and fun watch.  

hamletsmage hamletsmage says...

While the animation styles are a little different, these anime revolve around the fluffy felines that everyone keeps as pets... except these felines are a little different. One comes in a banana, the other thinks strawberries are an acceptable source of blood... But if you liked one, you're sure to die of cuteness overload from the other. 

Nicknames Nicknames says...

Both are short shows that feature odd cats doing cute things. They also are fairly episodic, and while Nyanpire features a vampire-cat while in Bananya you have cats in bananas, you'll definitely enjoy them.

ChalamiuS ChalamiuS says...

Both of these shows contain cats... except they are not normal cats. In Nyanpire the cat is a vampire and in Bananya they are... bananas?

If you enjoyed Nyanpire and want something equally silly you might enjoy Bananya (or vice versa).

Cats! Chi's Sweet Home takes a bit more of a realistic route and plays with the every day life of a normal cat and being a cat owner while Bananya is more silly with cats hiding inside bananas, but if you like felines and fluffy cuteness then I'm sure you'll be a fan of both shows. 

Nicknames Nicknames says...

Both are overly-cute short shows featuring cats (or cats in bananas) fooling around. Chi’s Sweet Home is a bit more realistic than Bananya but if you liked one and you’re in need of some diabetes-inducing cuteness give the other a go!

Lovers of Bananya, the kitty who lives in a banana, prepare to fall in love with Poyo, the melon-shaped cat! 

AngelBeatsYui AngelBeatsYui says...

Both are cute short series following the story of cats, they are both heavily focus' on short sketches and involve basic character designs. There is also the face that they are both light shows and enjoyable if you want something easy to watch after seeing something a bit more serious. So I recommend if you like the plain cuteness of one of these series then check out the other, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

Food + animals = both of these series. Dogtato-kun is probably aimed at a slightly younger audience and focuses moreso on morals, but both are lighthearted, cute titles that will appeal to the same type of fan.

Ocha-ken and Bananya are two family friendly titles involving food+animals. Ocha-ken is more focused on morals out of the two, but both are cute and cuddly and good fodder for the kiddies.

Madiz Madiz says...

While both these animes do not directly feature the same style and art of cats throughout their short clips, both do have the same catish adventures that make them funny and enjoyable to watch. Both are centered around the lives of cats and their daily new memories and discoveries. Nynako Days does have more of a plot and center around it, while Bananya has more of short little clips. However, both are still centered heavily around cats and always return back to the main focus of the furry little animals.

Both are sickeningly cute series with short-length episodes that will make you go "aww~". Also the protagonist in both shows are animals (An emperor penguin in Okoshiyasu, and a err... banana cat in Bananya) so if you liked one and this kind of shows are your thing then give the other a go!
