Tear-Inducing and Heart-Wrenching

When I watched the first episode of NANA, I was hooked from the start. The interaction between Nana Osaki and Nana Komatsu (Haichi) was flawless. And from there on, after going through their numerous tribulations and trials, the friendship between the two Nana's was nothing short of a beautiful, yet tragic bond. Episode after episode, I found myself feeling more attached to each character, from all the members of BLAST to the random friends they run to along the way. Although there were many moments I cried in frustration and misery, I realized that the brutal reality of NANA was what made the show so great. Every character had a flaw and there wasn't one person who was the bad guy. NANA realistically depicted the ups and downs of life, but also the undeniable strength that each person possesses in order to stand back up again. While Haichi falls hopelessly in and out of love, Nana battles against her own desires to become a famous musician, but also to become a happy woman in the end. Romance, although a heavy part of this anime, is definitely not a forefront. The trials of friendship, dreams, and aspirations are a pivotal part of this show that leaves you with a feeling of how convoluted life can be. NANA is not a happy-go-lucky anime for sure, but it will nonetheless bring a smile to your face . It's a truly beautiful story that captures the very essence of what it means to trudge through your problems to find the will to get back up again. I adore NANA and hope that one day the story will have it's rightful ending.

I remember looking at NANA and thinking, "Another girly anime." But then I saw the first episode and I was immediately hooked. What attracted me to the series with the first episode was the internal relationships of the characters. I could tell that this series would have a deep intertwined story of friendship, love, heartbreak and growing up. It turned out to be one of the finest pieces of Japanese animation that I have seen to date. The storyline is quite cohesive and consistent from one episode to the next. The first few episodes act as an introduction to the story, but after that it picks up very quickly. The music is absolutely wonderful. The rock songs, the instrumental pieces, all are very well done and match the series to a T. The characters are all different and unique. They each have intricate and interesting personalities from each other. How they interact and work with one another within the series is one of the things that makes this series so splendid. Character animation is absolutely wonderful. I highly recommend this series, wholeheartedly.

Nana is no doubt my favourite anime. It was so real and viewers can really establish a connection with it. It really hooked viewers and never let go. I'm sad that there will be no second season for the anime because the ending of the first season was sad and confusing. Nana was a sad anime but equally fantastic and enjoyable. Too bad it's licensed :\ The manga continues though. I think onemanga.com has Nana.
I would recommend this anime to anyoneeeeeee :D
Seriously.
Go on some site you can watch it.

Best Slice of Life ever

5.0Overall
I love Nana, the anime, manga and live-action. I cry the whole time I watch it. I was heartbroken when the creator went on an indefinite-hiatus and never finished the series. I loved how the characters of the live-action were so perfectly matched to the anime.

Nana rules! Must watch!

When I watched this for the first time it was so hard to stop watching, it was so gripping! Everything about it is good!

The story is one of the saddest and at the same time cutest I've ever read/watched.

This anime fallows the flow of the manga vary well even if it doesn't as far into the story line as the manga. I have fond my self relating to the characters more in the anime and manga more than any other and enjoy it vary much.

One of the BEST!!! :)

Disappointed this is not available on CR, but it is on Netflix instant watch and Hulu streaming.

By far the BEST "girly" anime series I have ever watched! Great main characters development. It leaves you wanting more after each episode. I had zero to no sleep when I watched this. It made me laugh and cry. Once you finish watching, you will be left humming/singing various Nana music!

I'm not a manga reader so I was unaware that this had an incomplete ending. From my search the ending does pick up from the manga. It was still a heartfelt ending, but it left you wanting MORE!

as maciau tik pirma serja, bet juk visad rasau po pirmosios.........

taigi, tikriausiai manot kad rašyti revievą dar per anksti, bet ką aš rašau didžiausias nesąmones, dažnai net nesusijusias su matytai epizodais... ir spėkit ką manau gerai kad rašau gimtąją kalba kurią čia mažai kas supranta, nes tikriausiai jau senai mane už tokius monologus butu išmetę, bet žinot ką? man patinka paskui atsiverčiu, paskaitau, pasijuokiu... ir lyg ir ok kad čia pievos, nes taip jau yra kai žmones kurie nemoka reikšti minčių rišliai ( tokie kaip aš) rašo revievus po pirmos serijos ir net nesupranta filmo esmes. bet ką čia tik įžanga... taigi. pradedam.. 1 2 3 4 :DD iš pirmosios serijos supratau kad ta brunete ( NANA nr1 ) nesugeba savimi pasirūpinti, jos vaikinu repertuaras tikrai turtingas mulkiais ir ji nesugeba susigaudyti tarp savo jausmu, tačiau ji turi akla svajone gyventi tokijuje su savo draugu, kuris ja kaip ir myli, ir štai traukinyje susipažįsta su kita NANA ( NANA nr2 ) ir spėkit ką ? Ji ir su ja gyvens ir tipo tai parodo kad kai nesiseka meilėje sekasi susirasti draugu... taigi sėkmes draugu paieškoje mielosios NANOS myliu, bučiuoju ir iki ;*

P.S. Dievinu "ROSE" daina <3
P.P.S. Aš irgi noriu būti NANA T.T
