Nana 1! I finally got around to watching...
- Poor Watanuki looks fat next to these characters.
+ Like Paradise Kiss, the production is almost flawless...Madhouse Studios ♥.
+ The opening by Anna Tsuchiya and ending by Olivia are nice rock tunes with great visuals. Anna Tsuchiya played Ichigo in Shimotsuma Monogatari (an entertaining movie similar to Nana).
+++ Romi Paku (who is also in Puripuri and was Edward Elric) and Ishida Akira...need I say more?
+ The cute moments are cute.
- The story.
Quick summary: Two girls with the the same name explore some hot passionate action together...oops, that would make it too interesting. Sweet Nana and Rocker Nana meet and end up living together. Watch how they survive...it's like real life..so they say.
My opinion: There once was a time that I enjoyed soap operas...back when I was like 13. I would have been obsessed with this show. Paradise Kiss was eh..eh. The Nana manga is eeh. The fashion and other visuals are great so I will end up watching. I enjoyed the live-action movie and the anime has definite potential for being more than girls crying about boys and life.
