Nana Suzuki is an ordinary schoolgirl with a crush on one Yuichi Kamichika. One day, while trying to bake a cake for Yuichi, she stumbles on her scientist grandfather's secret experiment to separate the light of a rainbow into seven crystals. Naturally, the experiment goes awry, and splits Nana into seven versions of herself, each with her own matching rainbow crystal. Now, Nana must find a way to integrate the crystals together, or else all seven of her will vanish.
The Seven Nanas are:
- Nana: The Original, or possibly the Responsible Nana. She uses the blue crystal.
- Nanappe: The Bokukko Nana. She uses the red crystal.
- Nanakko: The Slacker Nana. She uses the orange crystal.
- Nanacchi: The Cheerful Nana. She uses the yellow crystal.
- Nanarin: The cry-baby Gamer Chick Nana. She uses the yellow-green crystal.
- Nanasama: The Bookworm Nana. She uses the green crystal.
- Nanapon: The Weird Nana. She uses the purple crystal.
Not the be confused with the manga/anime Nana.
