Nana: Novel from the Movie

Image hosted by

Summary: Two girls of the same age, same name meet at the same time in the same train. They find the same apartment without knowing it, move in together - thus starting the marvelous adventure that is Yazawa Ai's "NANA". (text has been taken exactly from the film).

Review: Again, like the film, my major complaint is this: Cutting it off short in the middle of the entire story arc. However, it's been announced that there will be a sequel in the works as of later this year/early 2006 that is supposedly supposed to finish the rest of the story (as it is so far - volumes 5-13), so that's a good thing. Another thing I noticed while reading the novel - they're far more explicit about the initial bathtub scene with Nana and Ren in the beginning in the book than they are in the movie. But I guess that's to be expected. Otherwise, a good read as it has better inner monologues and brings more clarity to the characters that film just cannot due as it's visual and not textual. Check it out if you can.

Final Review: A
