I have been an anime fan for years, but I have to say with some regret that recent series that have been domesticated have been lacking adult/slice of life issues. I wasn't too sure about this title at first being that I had read the Paradise Kiss series that is done by the same creator as Nana and wasn't too thrilled with the series. For Nana, though, my experience has been much better. The synopsis of this series is nicely summed up in Amazon's summary, but of course doesn't really bring to focus what is so great about this story.

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.

For any of you who may have suffered through the ridiculous train wreck that was the Peach Girl anime, Nana is a fresh breath of air. Yes there's pretty clueless girls, and plenty of hot guys, and yes there's lots of drama. but it's all done better. The animation is better. The voice acting is better, the characters are more developed and real. It is kind of paced slow, it starts at the present time and then spends 6 episodes giving u their back story of the year before they all moved to Tokyo. The only bad episode is where u see basically the entire first episode all over again, but with smaller new parts added. that was kind of cheap, but its off to a great start. It follows the manga pretty faithfully, and so everything is gone into detail..maybe a little bit too much. and sadly at episode 11 things are really starting to take off, but that's where this dvd collection cuts off. My ouran host club collections have at least 13 episodes and i think they could have at least given us two more episodes for the price they are asking. Nana is a great story, and it is a rollercoaster, things don't always work out they way u think they will. If u like, drama, love, sex and lots of rock'n roll then Nana is for u!
also, i got a sweet guitar pick with Nana O.'s tattoo on it. very cool. check this one out ladies!!

I watched the entire NANA collection on Netflix at least five times before they removed it from their offerings. There it was in Japanese with English subtitles, which was fine by me! I loved the story line, the music, and the comical expressions of the characters when appropriate. I really wanted to purchase the series, but the price was just too much for me to handle. Finally, I came to realize that it would be better to get the dubbed version digitally downloaded via Amazon Instant Video than not have one at all. Since my purchase, I've watched it twice. Some of the voice inflictions are different, but that's due to the language change I'm sure. It's still my favorite!

It's a terrific story about 2 young ladies both named "Nana", which also means "seven" in Japanese. It's a slice of life drama with some light hearted moments, and growing pains, and some awesome music (even if you can't understand the lyrics)! There are also some great friendships. While it has 51 episodes altogether, it definitely held my interest. It's sort of like getting hooked on a soap opera, but much better! There are some unexpected twists and turns, and, having watched the series with subtitles, it's cool to have it with English dubs now, too.
If you're going to buy this set, buy them all. It's worth it!!

I was looking for something to watch and came across this series. It starts off cutesy and entertaining. By the second or third episode you're hooked! Do yourself a favor and give it a shot. It's definitely a girls flick. Worth buying and re-watching.

Nana is my all time favorite anime. I finally purchase it for myself to watch again :D
This one can make you laugh, cry, feel happy, sad, etc. You will go through all the emotions. I felt very strong attachments to all the characters. I am copying this same review for all 4 Nana box sets.

The anime series Nana is a romantic/drama/comedy and is 47 episodes long. The story follows two 20-year old young women, both named Nana who meet coincidentally twice, and become room mates and then best friends. Nana Osaki is a punk singer who wants to debut with her band as soon as possible to emotionally get over her ex-boyfriend, Ren Honjo. She was the lead vocalist in her band, Black Stones with Ren, and they lived together as lovers.
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.
