Overview

Nana, Vol. 1 by Ai Yazawa

Nana Komatsu is a young woman who's endured an unending string of boyfriend problems. Moving to Tokyo, she's hoping to take control of her life and put all those messy misadventures behind her. She's looking for love and she's hoping to find it in the big city.

Nana Osaki, on the other hand, is cool, confident and focused. She swaggers into town and proceeds to kick down the doors to Tokyo's underground punk scene. She's got a dream and won't give up until she becomes Japan's No. 1 rock'n'roll superstar.

This is the story of two 20-year-old women who share the same name. Even though they come from completely different backgrounds, they somehow meet and become best friends. The world of Nana is a world exploding with sex, music, fashion, gossip and all-night parties.

Another series, Kagen no Tsuki (Last Quarter), was made into a live-action movie and released in late 2004. American readers were introduced to Yazawa's stylish and sexy storytelling in 2002 when her title Paradise Kiss was translated into English.

Nana has become the all-time best selling shojo title from Japanese publishing giant Shueisha, and the series even garnered a Shogakukan Manga Award in the girls category in 2003. A live-action Nana movie was released in Japan in 2006.

NANA is a wonderful book for people in their teens and above. Ai Yazawa's beautiful art will draw you in, but the story will keep you. Its two protagonists Nana Osaki and Nana Komatsu have believable personalities so any reader can put themselves in their shoes. The story is down-to-earth with a touch of glamour. If you want a break from the 'Magical Girl' shoujo genre to something mature with an awesome storyline, NANA is the manga for you.

This series has me giggling one minute and sobbing the next. It's a perfect choice for those looking for a soap opera of a series that you can get wrapped up in and fall in love with. It starts pretty light and happy, but then things get complicated, and well, life happens. (Literally! You'll see. ^_~ )

I had always come across this manga in some shape or form. It wasn't until i actually bought it that i realized how awesome it was. If you like manga. Well more like shoujo manga. Then you NEED to read this.

This is the premier shojo title. I fell in love with it the first time I read it. Everyone knows a Nana K and a Nana O. If there is the one series I will start collecting, this is it especially since it will no longer be serialized in Shojo Beat after August 2007.
