Get your Japanese pop-punk fix! If you’re not familiar with the awesomeness of Nana, prepare to have your heart broken.
Nana started as a manga about two girls – one a bubble-headed romantic, the other an aspiring rock star, both named “Nana” – who become friends when they make the move to big city Tokyo. The ensuing late night parties, pop star rivalries, and male prostitution give Gossip Girl a run for its money. There’s a reason VIZ labeled the DVDs “Uncut.”
The manga spawned two live action movies and this anime series. Volume 4 ends the series, so if you were waiting for the chance to watch the entire thing in one sitting, you now can!
