"Hey Nana, do you remember...?"Nana "Hachi" Komatsu is a 20-year-old Genki Girl from the countryside with a bad habit of falling in love at first sight (with any man who glances in her direction). Nana Osaki is a 20-year-old punk rocker from a different small city, who's coming off a bad breakup with her boyfriend (and former bass player of her band). When "Hachi" decides to follow her boyfriend to Tokyo, and the other Nana heads there to start her music career, the two young women meet by chance on a snowbound train. They rent an apartment together several days later. Surprisingly realistic drama and an oddly romantic friendship ensues.The manga Nana is technically shoujo, but according to The Other Wiki, it's often been confused for josei, and according to that same wiki, by 2005, it was the fourth best selling shoujo manga. The first live action movie was the #2 film in Japan in 2005, behind only the latest film from Studio Ghibli. The anime ran for 47 episodes, and is licensed for distribution in North America.The manga is currently on an indefinite hiatus since 2009 due to the author, Ai Yazawa, recovering from an illness. This year, to commemorate the 100th issue of Cookie (the magazine in which Nana is published), created a new bonus chapter.Not to be confused with Shichinin no Nana.
