->''"...life isn't very fair, is it?"''

After having spent her life being raised in a lab, Nana suddenly found herself living on the streets with no money, no food, no friends. Compounded by the fact that she had recently lost her limbs in an assassination attempt gone wrong, this proved to be a very trying experience for our young heroine. [[FromBadToWorse Yet her troubles were just about to begin...]]

A fan-comic based off of the {{Anime}}/{{Manga}} series ''Manga/ElfenLied'', coming to you courtesy of comic writer Creator/DanKim, ''Nana's Everyday Life'' branches off in a completely different direction from its source material, featuring several cast members from [[Manga/GunslingerGirl other series]], as well as a few original characters.

It '''will''' make you cry.

!!This comic provides examples of:

* AlternateContinuity: Starting off as a parody of ''Elfen Lied'', the comic soon branches into its own take on Nana and her unyieldingly terrible life.
* BarbieDollAnatomy: For art dissonance to the point of GrotesqueCute.
* BlackComedy: About the comedy part...
** DeconstructedTrope: It keeps pushing the "black" part until you may start asking if it's truly funny anymore.
* BlackComedyRape: Subverted. YouBastard.
* BreakTheCutie: More like demolish. Starting with reducing Nana to a quadruple amputee and [[FromBadToWorse getting worse from there.]]
* CerebusSyndrome: Goes from having fun making her life hell (Pedobear gets a surprising early cameo) to just making her life hell, and then to making her life so horrible that just thinking about it makes the reader tear up...
* CharacterExaggeration
* TheChewToy: Why yes...
* CigaretteBurns: [[http://manga.clone-army.org/viewer.php?&series=nana&page=19 Ouch!]]
* CrapsackWorld: [[CosmicPlaything The entire universe has it out for Nana.]]
* {{Crossover}}: Freely blending characters from several continuities along with new characters.
* DiedHappilyEverAfter: [[spoiler: Happens to Nana in the epilogue. Nana, who spontaneously resurrects a dead kitten ''and'' makes the dank alley she dies in [[FertileFeet sprout beautiful flowers]].]]
** [[spoiler:She's also reunited with Marcelo and Minami, whose shadows are shown in the last few panels]].
* DownerEnding: In classic Victorian literature form.
* EndingTrope: [[spoiler: TheHeroDies]]
* FixFic: A crossover with VideoGame/{{Team Fortress 2}} [[http://web.archive.org/web/20120430151623/https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6114528/1/Nanas_New_Life here]].
* FromBadToWorse: To the point of being [[GallowsHumor hilarious]]... or, y'know, [[TearJerker tragic,]] I guess.
* HopeSpot: [[spoiler:Just long enough to make the inevitable return that much more painful.]]
* GrotesqueCute: That cute picture up there? That's the style the comic is drawn in. These tropes? They are not cutesy.
* HumansAreBastards: With the exception of Marcelo and Minami after their CharacterDevelopment
* MamaBear: [[http://manga.clone-army.org/nana.php?page=51〈= MAMA PUNCH!]]
* MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext: Lucy with a tail. 'Nuff said.
* OnceForYesTwiceForNo: [[http://manga.clone-army.org/viewer.php?&series=nana&page=64&lang=&HUDoff= The doctors]] at the lab asks this of Nana.
* TheRunaway: Mayu, trying to get away from ParentalIncest.
* SadistShow: Played up to 11.
* ScaryShinyGlasses: Kurama.
* SerialEscalation: What horrible things will happen to Nana today?
* SevenIsNana: The protagonist.
* SmokingHotSex: Featuring Nana and [[BlackComedyRape whoever raped her most recently]].
* SnapBack: Everything except hideously painful mutilation.
* StatusQuoIsGod: The only universal constant is that Nana is in constant agony.
* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: Nana didn't ask for all this!
* TookALevelInJerkass: In ''Elfen Lied,'' Kurama is a man who at first seems to be cold and ruthless but in reality cares deeply for his daughters, Nana and Mariko. He even risks being fired (or worse) by smuggling Nana out of the research complex and giving her prosthetic limbs and money to live in the outside world after he was ordered to kill her due to her failure to capture Lucy. Instead of doing that here, he dumps her in a cardboard box on the streets and studiously ignores her when he runs into her later. He later responds to a missing person's ad for Nana put up by her adoptive parents, has them killed, and takes her back to the research complex all without showing any emotion. Even worse, given how [[http://manga.clone-army.org/nana.php?page=67&lang= some of the Diclonii at the research complex respond to him]], it's implied that he deliberately forges a father/daughter bond with some Diclonii to get them to obey him. So yeah, he's definitely a bastard here.
* TheyKilledKennyAgain: Quite a few earlier comics involve Nana getting killed, only to return in the next comic. And likely get killed again. [[spoiler: At the end of the comic, however, [[KilledOffForReal it sticks]].]]
* ThirdPersonPerson: In this comic, Nana often referrs to herself in the third person. Not to mention Mariko and another Diclonius that Kurama raises in the lab...
* YouBastard: "'''[[spoiler: [[http://manga.clone-army.org/nana.php?page=11&lang= IS THIS COMEDY?]]]]'''"
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Inherited from the source material.
