Young Nana and Ringo live in a world where people develop StockSuperpowers soon upon turning [[DangerousSixteenthBirthday sixteen]] and are expected to use them responsibly to contribute to the communities they live in. Unfortunately, their own powers are the lowest rung: Ringo has a pair of superhumanly strong legs, while Nana can [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway manipulate bananas]]. What's more, Ringo's DisappearedDad has instilled in both of them a deep-seated desire to go adventuring and to find the legendary land of Oz (not [[Literature/LandOfOz that one]]), where [[QuestForAWish any wish can be granted]]. Unfortunately, vagrancy is a capital offense all across the continent that deprives adventurers of any human rights, so both Nana and Ringo have been bullied for their dreams since childhood. One day, however, the stars align, and Nana and Ringo say goodbye to their home village in the most final way ever (by violently beating up [[SmugSuper their abusive village chief]]), and find themselves on the high road of adventure. Wacky hijinks rapidly ensue.

[[caption-width-right:225:[[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything Manga cover: Nana of Banana]]]] ''Nana of Banana'' is a not-at-all-serious comedy manga starring Nana and Ringo, two girls who are treated like dirt in their village because of their supposedly useless powers. In this world, the strength of your powers defines your status in society: Ringo's strong legs, which let her jump really high, are looked down upon by people who can, say, [[MakingASplash control water]] while Nana... Nana can [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway manipulate bananas]]. Both had been inspired by Ringo's father's tales of the magical land of Oz (not [[Literature/LandOfOz that one]]), and of the adventurer that found it. They vowed to go on an adventure of their own someday. Skip to PresentDay. Ringo is being bugged by Nana to go on the adventure they promised so long ago, but Ringo has lost interest and is focusing on her job, not to mention leaving the village to go on an adventure is heavily, heavily stigmatized. The village chief, a rather jerkass cuss whose been keeping an eye on the two, then floods Nana's house for no reason other then [[SmugSuper because she can]] but it doesn't deter Nana. Nana decides to go on her adventure and gives Ringo a chance to join her. The chief isn't having any of that, so she sends people to take care of Nana and presents Ringo with a SadisticChoice of destroying the adventure diary that once belonged to her father. Cue Ringo refusing, crying out for Nana who then arrives, having dealt handily with the {{mooks}}. We then see the [[OverlyNarrowSuperlative very finest water vs. banana fight ever]], and Nana ''wins'' because [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower she is able to manipulate anything about bananas]], including making a shield strong enough to deflect water attacks, and a ''sword''. But the chief takes Ringo hostage, demanding she "[[PutDownYourGunAndStepAway Drop the banana]]!" Nana asks whether Ringo wants to go with her. Ringo responds by high-kicking the chief into the air. Of course, after that they can't go back home for fear of reprisals, so they take the opportunity to begin their adventure into their strange continent.
