Nana K. is going home--for an awesome TrapNest concert! She drags Nana O. along, convinced that somehow Ren will sense his ex-flame in the audience. But life is never that easy, and Nana O. isn't sure if she even wants Ren back.

No sé si no tengo ningún tipo de criterio para juzgar manga aún o Nana es una saga tan maravillosa que todos los tomos merecen cinco estrellas jajajajaja

Leer esto provoca, literalmente, una montaña rusa se sentimientos y emociones. En una página te estás riendo de un chiste absurdo y en la otra estás con una depresión enorme por algo que le pasó a alguno de los personajes. No, no estoy exagerando, es así. Creo que es imposible no terminar un tomo de Nana, este en particular (al menos hasta ahora

Oh boy Ren is back in the picture ! I was so interested in seeing how Ren was incorporated into this volume especially because of his past history with Nana. I enjoyed it and I loved that the girls are getting much closer and they are willing to be more open with each other than before. This definitely is a timeless manga that I will continue to enjoy and I'm looking forward to seeing how the girls are going to evolve in future relationships as well as with themselves and each other.

I'm completely addicted to Ai Yazawa's shojo manga Nana. Nana is the story of two young women, both from small towns, who meet on the bullet train and end up moving in together in Tokyo. Nana Komatsu (a.k.a. "Hachi") is a small-town girl who has big city dreams of romance and leaving her old life (and self) behind, while Nana Osaki has come to Tokyo to try to find success as the singer of her (psuedo) punk rock band, Blast. This all sounds like pretty standard fare so far, but once you throw in ...more

I can't believe how involved in this soap opera I am!

There's little hints that Nana K drops toward the end of the volumes - how this is all a flashback for her and she's telling this story far in the future.

This was a good one as the band Trapnest becomes involved with the band Blast. Or, rather, the members of Trapnest become re-involved with the members of Blast. Very complicated.

So many choices for Nana K to choose for her next love!

Silly but poignant. It's about growing up and I'm enjoying w

The fangirl in me rejoices over this particular volume for reasons you will only find out if and when you get this far. Let's just say that it reminds me of a few fan fiction stories that I read and loved back in the day - for both Nana's story angles.

Oh god, enter Takumi.

I appreciate how intertwined everybody's lives are. It makes things so messy and emotional!

نانا مانجا من نوع مميز ما قد شفته ، مافي مانجا ثانية تأثر في مشاعري وتخليني افكر في نقاط ضعفي واتذكر أشياء أنا ارتكبتها في حق نفسي زي نانا ، هاتشي هنا تمثل كل شي انا اكرهه واحتقره وما ابغى اكونه في الحياه.

En este volumen conocemos de cerca a más personajes, una historia va por buen camino, y los personajes que forman esa historia están teniendo una linda relación que me gusta mucho y me hace sentir feliz por ellos, sin embargo hay otra historia que comienza en este volumen, con un personaje que no me gusta para nada y que puede tirar abajo una gran amistad.

This was a fun and interesting volume, and I love Trapnest. I think its so sweet that Nana O. made a special treat for Hachi. I'm anxious to see where it goes from here and i enjoyed Takumi. I'm hoping that she wont read to much into that night because i don't want her to be disappointed and heartbroken again. I get why she did what she did and can't blame her or hold it against her she is an adult even if she is still immature. I want her to be able to appreciate the memory and let it be what i ...more

I will admit it I loved the anime and now I'm reading the manga because I'm here for all the drama, and I'm happy to experience it all again. It's addictive, like reality tv. I love the relationship with Nana and Nana and in this one the members of Trapnest show up and there's all the past drama and future drama of love affairs that have been had/ will be had. It doesn't really make sense that all of them know each other in the past, but I really don't care and I'm enjoying every second of it. O ...more

The volume starts with the two Nanas attending the concert and later on Ren getting togather with Nana Osaki. The rest of the volume concentrates on Hachico and Takumi relationship and how did it start.

Ai Yazawa nos presenta en este quinto volumen de ナナ Nana, el reencuentro tras el concierto de トラネス Trapnest de ナナ Nana y レン Ren, que juntos establecen mis momentos favoritos de este tomo. Su reconciliación introduce a los miembros de la banda de レン Ren nuevamente en la vida de los ブラストBlats lo que es un giro completamente genial.

Por otra parte, ハチ Hachi y タクミ Takumi no son precisamente mis personajes favoritos y aunque ハチ Hachi ha logrado entrar en una zona neutral con mi yo lector, タクミ Takumi p

Après un petit arrêt et des critiques laissées en suspens, je me suis replongée dans la série Nana et j'ai dévoré le tome 8.

Review dell'edizione italiana, ossia dei capitoli 5 e 6.
Hachi si impegna nella ricerca di nuovi membri per i Blast e Shin diventa il loro nuovo bassista. Arriva anche la tanto temuta Sachiko e, per Hachi, si mettono in mezzo anche i problemi economici.
Un volume divertente che non perde niente dei tratti eleganti ed esperti della Yazawa. Inoltre, come al solito, la serietà della storia e quel suo lato triste, che ha contribuito a far classificare questo manga anche come 'drama', sono sempre evide

While I adore the Nana series, this volume was so-so compared to the others. Not that it was bad or anything. Hell no, it was actually okay. But until this volume, Nana seemed to follow a pattern of realism in everyday life and love lives. But the whole Takumi x Nana thing was way too... dream like. It was just too easy and too perfect. I already know it ends well, so that's how I know it's too perfect. Unlike with Shoji and Nana, we see no development between Nana and Takumi. It was just 'I adm ...more

I'm giving this volume 5 freaking stars exclusively for the scene at the beginning (view spoiler)

This is definitely more of a set-up volume, as much of the drama that had been building up has been partially resolved at this point.

God, I hope everything works out for these peeps. Five volumes in and I'm already worrying about imaginary people.
