Nana Anime Review!

Published September 7, 2015 by Shay Taree

I know that NANA is an older anime and has been out for a while but I’ve finally gotten a chance to watch it. Yes I know that I am very late but hey at least I have finally watched it. 
So anyway on with this review and I completely fell in loved with this show and it had me hooked for the very beginning! I literally watched 4 episodes before I had to go to work and I couldn’t wait until I got home from work so that I could try and finish. 
But anyway the premise of the show was pretty much about two girls who of some crazy way have the same name and then end up becoming roommates when they both travel to Tokyo for different reasons. Once they become roommates the story then progresses with each of their ups and downs when it comes to love and just life in general.

I honestly really loved this show and I just had to keep watching each episode to see what was going to happen next. Nana K doesn’t always have everything together and she finds it very easy to fall in love with another guy. Nana O had more of a rough life overall so she is very tough. But overall they make a good pair of friends since their personalities are so different. 

Now throughout the show there are so many songs and the soundtrack was just amazing!!!!! Two bands that are prominent throughout the series are Blast which is Nana O’s band and then there is Trapnest who is another band which involves a group characters that are involved with Nana O as well as Nana K later on in the series. But regardless the songs that they sang and performed were amazing so of course they are now on my iTunes. 

The only thing that I did not like about this series was the fact that it didn’t finish. The anime itself left off in a good place but it was still very unfinished since there were quite a few questions that weren’t answered. Thankfully thought there is the manga to help you to answer those questions but at this point the manga is also on hiatus. At least it was the last time I checked. 
But overall I love the series and I really wish there was a 2nd season! So I give this anime a 9/10. I had to deduct a point due to the ending. But if your looking for anime with awesome music and enough drama to last you a lifetime definitely check out Nana. The dub was actually really good and it’s available on both Netflix and Hulu both dubbed and subbed. So comment down below on what you thought of this anime if you watched it as well as this review.

  • I love NANA. When the series was announced, I knew Romi Park had to be Osaki, and I was so looking forward to her singing. That was my only disappointment. But Anna was good, too.

    More of Yazawa-sensei’s works need to be released here, especially since I doubt NANA will continue anytime soon–if ever.
