Often, in life, we question the what ifs. This series primarily focuses on the what ifs in life, especially in the case of the two Nana's. The secondary characters are often involved with this story which gives a nice fuller picture from everyone's perspective; but of course, the main story is revolved around the two Nana's, the friendship they create, the bond that buids into something that would be considered an obessesion, and the heartache that comes with misunderstandings, jealousy and mistakes that could've been mended easily if each Nana hadn't been so self involved with their own lives.
Each episode is played out almost as a "flashback" at the misjudgements that were made and where the wrong turns started in the two Nana's friendship. While the first batch of episodes on this set are at a slow pace, it starts the series with the character's backstory, how they meet and of course how they started on their paths to the mistakes that they eventually lead to later in the series. While the manga series is still ongoing, I do believe that it is coming to its end, and if it is going the way it is, it seems to end in some form of tradegy.Read more ›
also, i got a sweet guitar pick with Nana O.'s tattoo on it. very cool. check this one out ladies!!
Ren is offered a chance to debut in Tokyo as a replacement member of the popular band Trapnest. Nana chooses to stick with their old band, choosing her pride over her love for Ren.
Nana Komatsu, the other Nana, is nicknamed Hachi as she is a bit of a push-over, and is like a puppy. When her friends and boyfriend leave for Tokyo, she decides to join them a year later after having saved enough money to support herself.
As Nana O. persues her dream, and Nana K. tries to figure out her own life goals, things get increasingly complicated and dramatic. The drama includes love affairs, reunions and success. It gets very intense at times. Friendships are tested and life and love are the key.
The animation style is identical to the manga it is based on and is very good for a 47 episode series.
With the story revolving around music, there are two real-life musicians that write and sing the songs for the two bands in the series. Anna Tsuchiya writes songs for/inspired by Nana and the Black Stones. Olivia Lufkin (half japanese) writes songs for/inspired by Reira and Trapnest.
These songs are used as opening and closing songs to the anime, as well as played on the episodes.
Anna/Nana's songs are more punk/rock. I think they suit the character perfectly, and are very catchy.Read more ›
