''Bento Banana'' is a SciFi DarkComedy animated web-series created by Creator/AriGrabb, with the first episode published in 2018.

The series stars the titular Bento Banana and his OnlySaneMan companion, Plumpy, who are within a procedurally generated anime run by an enigmatic director in the real world. Yet, something is causing the characters within the anime to not go down their intended route, leading to surpising and horrific outcomes.

''Bento Banana'' takes a jab at typical anime tropes and often twists them for darkly comedic effect.

The series can be watched on Ari Grabb's [=YouTube=] channel, starting with the [[ first episode, here]].
