    Re: Nana 84 Discussion/85 Predictions Threads

    >.> I uh... come in Hachi's defense.

    I do not believe she is a weak woman. All that she decided and stuck on were all but plain signs of her strength. honestly, I was surprised at the recent turn of events when she finally caved in and hugged Nobu (did they kiss? I can't remember). however, there were several factors, like her frustration with Nana and Ren's death, plus her feeling of insignificance in Takumi's heart.

    regardless, she has been strong all this time, a woman of 20, to embrace motherhood as she did, fighting for what she wanted and standing by her decisions.

    Really, if there were any weak person in the manga, it would be Nana.

    Re: Nana Hangout Thread

    I watched the first episode of the NANA anime the other day. How closely does the anime follow the manga storyline?

    I think it's very close. I think they did a really nice job with the anime.

    +1 baboysai
    and I will also say that nana is hiding her weakness behind her big mouth (not in the negative way!) and her charisma

    I agree. It's very close.

    Even the first movie was very close to the manga, up to the costume designs and vivienne westwood hehe. I loved Mishka adams as Nana O.

    Re: Nana Hangout Thread

    I just finished reading all the way to chapter 84. I'm seriously hooked on the story. I also watched all 47 episodes of the anime, but I haven't watched the movies yet. At first I only was interested because I loved Kagen no Tsuki, and the only reason I read that was because I saw the movie, and the only reason I saw the movie was because of Hyde being in it. But I'm glad I got into reading Nana. I can't wait for the next chapter to come out.

    Re: Nana 84 Discussion/85 Predictions Threads

    @baboysai-- I still think present Hachi is much more growed up than past Hachi, so the further back you go, the "weaker" you could call her. Right now, I likes Hachi lots.

    As for mental stability, no issues there as Hachi is the normal one. Normal people grow up over time, unlike Nana. :/

    If Shin doesn't go to Reira, I will shoot him. Oh wait, I like the kid. I will hug his head and squeeze until it explodes. Anyway, he better get off his ass and go to her or I will be annoyed.

    Nana's Ai Yazawa Puts Manga on Hold Due to Illness

    Quote Quote:
    The August issue of Shueisha's Cookie magazine has announced on Friday that manga creator Ai Yazawa is putting her NANA series on hold due to a sudden illness. As a result, this issue did not run its scheduled installment of NANA. Since Yazawa will need several months of treatment and rest, NANA will also not appear in the September issue (which will ship on July 25) or later issues until further notice.

    Cookie's editorial department offered its apologies to NANA's readers, and added that NANA's return has not been scheduled yet. Once the editors can confirm Yazawa's recovery, they will notify their readers of the manga's return through the magazine itself, the magazine's homepage, the official NANA website, and other means.

    Viz Media will publish the 17th of NANA's 21 current volumes in North America next month, and it is also releasing both the television anime adaptation and the two live-action film adaptations. Yazawa was scheduled to appear at the Japan Expo convention in France next week, but Japan Expo announced on June 12 that she had to cancel due to health problems. NANA was on hiatus from June to November of 2007 while Yazawa recuperated from another illness and the resulting operation.

    Thanks for letting us know, Phoenix Wright. But this is terrible news!

    I haven't been able to find what the illness is yet, but anything that would cause her to go on hiatus for "several months" must be pretty serious. I hope she recovers as quickly as possible!

    Aww, I was really looking forward to chapter 85 coming out soon. I guess I need to find another manga to start reading.

    She could just be overworked and needs a vacation.

    Geehhhh... well, if she's sick, she's sick. If she spends the time recuperating and comes back better than ever then it's all good. I just hope she leaves some notes behind in case of Author Existence Failure. Just saying
