Nana Komatsu is a young woman who's endured an unending string of boyfriend problems. Moving to Tokyo, she's hoping to take control of her life and put all those messy misadventures behind her. She's looking for love and she's hoping to find it in the big city. Nana Osaki, on the other hand, is cool, confident and focused. She swaggers into town and proceeds to kick down the doors to Tokyo's underground punk scene. She's got a dream and won't give up until she becomes Japan's No. 1 rock'n'roll superstar. This is the story of two 20-year-old women who share the same name. Even though they come from completely different backgrounds, they somehow meet and become best friends. The world of Nana is a world exploding with sex, music, fashion, gossip and all-night parties.

Nana and Hachi's adventures continue in this likable installment. Has the demon lord got Shoji in his grasp? Find out!
Bittersweet and very appealing manga about two women named Nana- their lives, loves and their friendship. Vol 1 introduces the two women; they meet each other later. Vol. 1 can stand by itself as a sweet set of short stories. Very good.
The two Nanas meet in this highly readable and enjoyable second volume. Blonde Nana gets her nickname too!
Eh, just not for me. The art is, for the most part, good, and I do like the attention to clothes and style. But I don't like either Nana at all, and I don't care to follow their lives for another 20 volumes or so. It's not that it's badly written, it's just not my thing.
