Arrow Banana no Nana



Title: Banana no Nana (Alternatives: バナナのナナ; Nana of Banana)
Year released: 2010

Quote:
On the world that consists of a single giant continent called Dokkanon, most people have some kind of special ability. Those who have a high-ranking ability, such as the ability to control water, are respected and granted much power. Those with low-ranking abilities, such as Nana, who controls bananas, and her best friend Ringo, who has super-powerful legs, have very little power in society. When Nana and Ringo were kids, they were awed by stories from Ringo's adventurer father about a land called Oz, where a god lived who could make any wish come true. Nana and Ringo swore that they would go adventuring together when they were adults. But as time went by, Ringo's father vanished while adventuring, and Ringo became much more aware of the social stigma associated with adventurers. Will the two of them find the strength and courage to follow through with their promise?
Author: Oniyazu Kakashi
Genre: action, adventure, comedy, fantasy


So far, three chapters are scanlated.
I thought the manga is very funny.
Other than the painfully obvious innuendos, it's quite interesting the way the author tackles the whole "adventure" concepts.

I was sold on "yuri" and "shounen."

And there's still so much more to enjoy.

Just three chapters is not enough.

Both the leads are cool and cute in their own way. I am however somewhat disappointed that the maid is not entirely dressed in the french maid style.

I think Ringo's ability is actually pretty good. Anyone who gets kick by that leg will take a lot of damage and she can run away fast if things get bad. If she learns martial arts she will be a good combatant. Her risk is also rather insignificant for now.
Nana on the other hand has a pretty specific joke ability that she somehow manage to make into a useful one. It require her to have some level of weapon proficiency though.

I wonder what other "fruits" will join the gang. For now we have banana and apple. Grape will join without a doubt. I am guessing strawberry, peach and orange

The God there make tsundere girl wearing miniskirts...? Such a good God they have there...

It seems Ringo's "risk" is undoubtedly Nana's bliss . With that same line of logic, maybe Ringo secretly have a fetish to shove a banana with skins down Nana's throat..

hmmm...if it's true, I'm afraid the wish Ringo want to be granted when they reach the land of Oz is:
"Turn me to Male so I can shove my own Banana to Nana's mouth"

Having to eat a banana with the skin on for every use seems like overkill to me. It's a good thing she loves bananas, but still . . .

This is weekly right? >_>

don't worry, the maid still there for Yuri-ness
And Nana just need to adjust fruit size of Banana Tree she grown, so it small enough to swallow in one gulp even with the skin on

That will be a cheating to God i guess. See.... the God probably even measured Ringo's skirt to make sure it's qualified as mini-skirt

It looks fun in Japanese through: バナナのナナ

I bet there would be at least one country out there, which will laugh at the name "The Day after tomorrow"....
Naming sense can't be translated afterall

Chapter 4 was pretty good. "I love you, please forgive me!" "It's not like I've forgiven you or anything..." "She's back to normal, I'm glad she's a tsundere" Had me laughing. Will be interested to see how Nana wins against the maid.
