Still so many feelings, and so many things I want to happen for certain characters in this story. Why can't everyone just be happy already? *cries* Oh wait. Real life isn't always sunshine and rainbows and joy.
It's been ages since I've read volume 10. I've forgotten so much, but a lot of it came back to me. At times this one was confusing but it was also pretty good. This is so complicated, I've forgotten exactly why Hachi/Nana is acting so oddly when she is just about to see the group.

The dorm thing is weird. The whole music scene and why anyone cares about the relationship between Trapnest and Blast has always had me puzzled.

Still, I like the characters. They're my friends.
Hey! In all my talking about Nana, I forgot that I actually read this volume!

And to be honest, I briefly considered giving up the series after this one. For some reason, Yazawa abandoned the unique storyline and characters she'd been developing up until this point in favor for Stock Shoujo Contrived Plot Points, and the whole narrative really lost steam. Two very uninteresting new characters are introduced: single women! In a building with two single, heartbroken men! What a coincidence! Also, O

I still love this series, but it's starting to get a little messy with all the plot lines. Like Misato... the heck is she???? And niw she's disapeared. Also it's obvious that Osaki is narating but what happened??? Still sfraud to finish it because I know it's unfinished and no one knows when it will be...

So... Takumi.... He's changeing a bit I guess. I adore Shin! He acts so sweet and innocent and then *snap* he aint so much haha. Looking forward to the next one!

nothing exciting going on in this volume unfortunelty. But then again, mangas' that always have massive developments in plots are so cliché and fake so I guess it's a good thing. One thing I really love about the way Ai Yazawa writes Nana, is the use of metaphors; she does it so well and so sweetly too! There's quite a lot on average in a single volume so it can be kind of overwhelming but hey, it's good that a mangaka is incorporating a literary technique into their writing. Although I must say ...more

Both Nana's are so complex. I'm so unsure of so many characters intentions... Nana, Hachi, Shoji, Ren, Takumi...

"Hey, Hachi... They say people realize the value of something only after they lose it, but I think it's when you face it once more that you truly recognize it. If I could see everyone now, I'd depend on them again for sure. I'm scared of that. That's why I can't move from this spot." -Nana

Okay so this part wasn't on the anime and I'm now super invested, because it's all new information to me. And ugh that cliffhanger. Such a good set up and I'm 1000% here for it. This one was really good. I loved the stuff between Nana and Ren. I loved seeing how Hachi is coping with this and especially her run in with Shoji. I feel like I've been waiting for Shoji to come clean about how much of a jerk he was and I'm glad to get that closure on their relationship. Anyways on to the next one, I'm ...more

we find out what is the health condition Nana is suffering from, and we are introduced to a new character named Meiyu, in this volume. The Yasu x Nana is becoming more and more real just at the same time we know about Ren struggling with his addiction. He finally propose to her at the middle of the volume too and we finish the volume with the hope that the two Nanas will meet again.
For the sake of sanity, I'm going to call Nana Komatsu 'Little Nana' and Nana Osaki 'Big Nana'.

I like this volume a lot more since most of the relationship drama has calmed down a bit. Little Nana is gonna marry Takumi. Big Nana and the rest of the band are working on becoming super stars. Ren is the only one having issues. But that could easily be fixed.

Still, normally this type of story isn’t my thing, whether you view it as shojo drama or as punk rock style.

Theme of Novel 11: Relationship doubts.

Ever since Nana and Ren's relationship has been discovered by the Papparazi and Blast has been blown to the front page, all the members of the band have had to get out Tokyo and enter into a dorm run by Gaia Records. Relationship complications come with the package it seems. Nana has to deal with Ren falling apart and has doubts with them being able to be together. Is Yasu really just a big brother to her? Nobu is still broken over Hachi but seems to grab n

So much toying with my emotions! I was reading faster and faster to the end, hoping (view spoiler) but it just slipped through my fingers... ugghhh so I of course had to immediately pick up the next book.

Takumi was straightening up a bit... but nope! I'm sure this will be a constant back and forth of him being "sweet" and then making Hachi cry... :( Possible light at the end of the tunnel though? Did she seem to be cons

In the anime I just figured Nana and Ren were destined for each other, but reading the manga has helped me out on that. In the manga it hints that maybe there was some longing there on Nana's part and not just Yasu's.

Haichi may be secure with Takumi, but they won't be happy. I want to feel bad for her, but she knew he would cheat on her. I hope that one day she and Nobu can be together again.

Shoji kind of annoys me now. He says that Nana didn't want him, but he still cheated. Honestly their whol

his is my second favourite Japanese manga and is going on forever. This is the first edition that’s come out in print before I’ve seen everything happen in the anime so it was quite exciting for me to not know what was happening. It’s all about two girls called NANA and two rival bands, the members of which are all connected. Ai Yazawa’s other translated manga Paradise Kiss is even awesomer, and only 5 books long, so you could try that first!

This book was kind of just filler space in the series, setting up things for Nana and Hachi and their romantic relationships. Not much new happened, and nothing noteworthy so if you want to read the entire series then it doesn't matter if you read this one. It's still good and wonderfully drawn, though.
