Several years into the future. Ren's death anniversary.

Yasu, Miu, Hachi and Satsuki are gathered by the sea. Shin couldn't make it because of work.
Seeing the 3 adults making offerings on the sand, Satsuki copies them.
After that, they go to Nobu's hotel and held a Mahjong session. Hachi is the only one who wins all the games.
Nobu: Why are you so good at the game?
Miu: Because I coached her
Nobu: Hachi must have picked up all the special techniques from you.
Satsuki: Why didn't Shin-chan come?
Yasu: Shin is the only person who can perform his job. He can't even take a break when he's ill.
Satsuki: Is that why daddy didn't come back?
Hachi remains silent.
Satsuki: And that's why brother (mysterious brother strikes again) stayed with Daddy right? But Mummy is with me, so I don't feel lonely.
After Satsuki falls asleep, Yasu says: I wonder what she prayed for by the sea.

End of future scene

Back to continuation of Chapter 78.2

Everybody mops around at the Terashima Inn (Nobu's family's hotel).
Miu says to Hachi: If you stay in the cold, it will not be good for the baby. Let's take a bath.
Hachi wants to decline, but Nobu says: The rooms have bath tubs. You go ahead.

Scene switches to Nana's room.
Nana remains stunned.
Ginpei: Let's take the car. I'll drive.
Nana: I'm not going. There's work tomorrow.
Yasu: Go and see him for the last time.
Nana's mind is filled with memories of Ren.
Yasu: We'll drive to Nagoya and catch our flight.
Everybody leaves the hotel.

Scene switches to bathroom at Terashima Inn.

Nana and Miu are bathing together.
Miu: All along, I thought Nobu was quite undependable.
Hachi: He's not undependable. He's just too gentle and kind.
Hachi discovers that there are slash marks on Miu's arms and asks if she did it to herself.
MiuL Yes
Hachi: Why did you do that?
Miu: I wasn't suicidal. I just have such a fetish. But from now on, I won't do things that will make Yasu sad.
Miu starts crying after that.

Takumi returns to his room at Terashima Inn.
Naoki: Welcome back.
Behind Naoki, Takumi spots Reira, lying down and covered with a blanket. On sensing Takumi's presence, she gets up, hugs Takumi and apologizes.

Back to the bathroom.
Hachi: Although Nobu consoled me, I will regret failing to persuade Ren for the rest of my life.

At the backseat of Ginpei's car, a teary-eyed Nana leans against Yasu.

Okay, I'm starting to get it now. Obviously the sea is Ren's grave because in one chapter when it was just him and Reira he told her that if he ever died to spread his ashes over that sea. (It was the chapter when he told her he thought about killing nana Anyway so when Ren died they must have spread his ashes there. Also in the future scenes you always hear about how nana "died at the sea" (when the repoter from Search was reporting back to the boss in the future) she must have tried to kill herself and join Ren in the sea. Oh and one more thing, again, i dont know the chapter but it was at the end of one, It was Hachi's voice saying something like "I still remember Nana's last words; I want to see the sea" that must have been when she went and tried to kill herself but disappeared in the end. This is all a guess on my part though...

I'll come to post my comment later...

I'm still depressed everytime I read Nana for the moment..I'm worried for Hachi's life she won't be happy at all because of Nana's sake and her family that they can't live together , she wants to live with her family but I think she can't do that because Nana disappeared, she wants to meet Nana (Ren should help her as her wish). Now I don't care if she will break with Takumi, but of course I will be soooooooooooo sad (I just try to think in negative more than positive way for Nana manga because of Ren's death).

This chapter it makes me like Nobu more, it seems that he grew up from the past, that's good he has changed, I'd love to see him to be like this. Maybe he will end up with Hachi Yawaza sensei might make us to be surprised and it will be a reward to Nobu's fans that they will see him happy. Even though I'm Takumi's fan but I don't care anything now, sometimes Takumi deserves to live alone all his life, I thought that.

I remembered that Hachi will go to find Nana in London (which chapter I don't remember well maybe 74 or 75) Takumi called her that but she still didn't go there (?), I'm wondering if Yazawa sensei will tell us soon that will be the end of Nana manga (?). I can't wait to see next chapter (80) *lol* I haven't read 79 chapter yet (english translation), I'm so hasty.

this chapter disappoints me! >;< basically no development at all, just more mourning. I guess Aizawa cannot get herself out of her own dilemma ( that is if she is too into her characters, which is possible). Life goes on no matter what. I start to get annoyed a the whole bunch of emotionally weak people in this manga lo.
There is a chance that Little Ren is Nobu's...but then the story would become even more complicated, anyhow I hope the serie gonna end soon, since from what it seems, it gonna be gloomy over the left chapters.
Nana O has to learn to be independent, maybe she knows that too, that's why she went away if she throws herself into her frineds' arms, the cycle will start again and the one who dies 'cos of drugs is not Ren but Nana!

This chapter was so very sad...but it cleared a lot of things up for me. About the future, the present...the past...
Ren's death was so unexpected. But in away, it seemed inevitable.

Yasu looks so much like Ren at the start when he's looking at Miu!

I almost cried when I found out Ren was dead. don't ask why, I pretty much fell onto my knees. After all, I think that Nana O. and Ren were the canon couple of the series, and in a way, it still is. I think it's the one pairing that won't be 'shaken'. They will always love each other.

Why is Takumi so nice to Reira? It annoys me again... He should go to Hachi and hug her instead, little bastard.

Maybe because bandmates stick together? I don't mind him comforting Reira now, but I'm afraid in the future Reira will be emotionally dependent again. She knows Takumi is fed up with her ( what chapter is it? 74?) and she is fed up with herself but she cannot change . She is just as Shin said - a selfish woman- her sacrifice for Ren might not be sacrifice after all because by feeling needed by someone she can stop herself from falling int a darker pit, inferior complex maybe? ( the " if I can't sing, I'm nothing" thing).
BTW Reira, on the way to hell, take Takumi with you ( lol I am amazed at how mean I can be when it comes to Reira!! shame shame shame on me )
I just hope that my Ren can go to heaven *tears*
