    Re: Takumi

    Takumi, imho, character is not complex. He had a bad father, was a misfit (bad-boy) teenager, a womanizer and most importantly is madly in love with his career and since Reira is part of that scene, can't live without her. All the thing that he does, he is aware of it and he do it anyways. He is my least favorite character cuz he shows no growth, no commitment or even love. I think women to him are just an avenue for him to release his frustration, horniness (lol) and a place of warmth. I don't feel sorry for him nor do I gushed over him. So, if he can't even commit to a relationship without cheating, then imo, he is just your typical, horny, abusive of power, little man. I just wished that Ai Yazawa would have introduced at least one new male character that rivals Takumi since it is already 20 volumes long but alas, we have to sit and read the ever down spiraling and depressing relationship that is Hachi and Takumi. I am just hoping and praying that the 2 of them ended up with a divorce because I think Takumi needs to be single more so than being tied down. He is a swinger.

    Re: Nana 84 Discussion/85 Predictions Threads

    I don't think Shin should go to Reira cuz Shin himself is a kid. Among all the guys there, he's the one with the most screwed up upbringing. Reira did give him comfort for awhile until he realized that she is pretty screwed up herself. They are actually not suitable for each other. He can't take care of her cuz he is still growing up and Reira messed it up when she rejected him. I think in the future, Shin probably is so over Reira that I find it pretty hilarious. Shin needs a new woman to make him happy and Reira is not it. I've noticed that sometimes in real life, people always go out and seek comfort in their own inner circle and the same is happening here in the manga. So, my suggestion to Shin, RUN!!!!

    Nope, the cultural ideal of beauty in Japan is a feminine appearance, not a manly one. Just look at the mainstream majority of Japanese male celebrities and artists, you often can barely tell them apart from their female co-workers.

    While manga for guys focus on butt&boobs for the female characters, the manga for girls tend to feature skinny till normal looking male characters. Muscular and very sportive looking guys are more a thing of action and erotic manga targeting male readers, not so much of romance and drama stories for females. Even in Boys Love manga you differ between gay manga for guys (over-the-to muscular characters) and gay manga for girls (natural, skinny, feminine or slightly sportive characters).

    I have to admit that many seinen manga turn me off because of the 'too manly' design of the male characters. I can better adjust on normal or skinny types when following a story.

    Re: Takumi

    IMO: I think Takumi has changed a little after he married Hachi-kou. After their child was born, I think he has developed a sense of responsibility to at least go home and initiate talks with Hachi.

    Re: Nana Hangout Thread

    @Smoking-- Also let's keep in mind that smoking in general is very common in Japan (and the rest of Asia). I highly doubt tobacco companies make most of their profits in the US these days. Having so many characters smoking would be a pretty fair representation even if it weren't the "rock scene."

    @Body Style-- Oddly, the word "Style" スタイル in Japanese means figure. Generally speaking, a girl with good "style" means a girl with a shapely figure, and a guy with good "style" is the more muscular sporty type. Aesthetically speaking though, it's a fact that Japanese women don't have the same view on muscular men as American women-- it's just not something in demand in the same way.

    . . . just like it Japanese men (or women) don't seem to care about straight teeth. While I think there will always be a part of the human genome that attracts women to powerful looking men, if I think of the word "ikemin" (good looking guy), you definitely mean the kind of pretty fashionable guy.

    The Japanese (at least in the cities) love Fashion, and one thing I kept hearing female American students while I was studying abroad in Japan was that they noted how much better Japanese men dress in general compared to American men. To a large degree it is cultural and I do think it also stems from a difference of taste between American and Japanese women (and again this probably comes down to some cultural difference).

    Re: Takumi

    hehe he's my favorite character because he's so complex, and he'll always have a redeeming quality IMO. It will show up sooner or later in the manga, and 100% of that will be because of Hachi.

    No. I think the press release said she would need several months treatment, and I haven't heard/read anything else.

    Re: Nana by Ai Yazawa

    As this series has come to a hiatus, the Nana subforum will be dissolved for now. Until she's back or when the discussion has come to be so active, hopefully we'll see the Nana forum up again.

    Funny thing is, there hardly seem to be any news on her return anywhere.

    Re: [Shoujo] Nana by Ai Yazawa

    What a loss. It will be very sad if this manga does not get finished.

    It will a great loss if we dont get more mangas from Ai Yazawa.

    I hope she recovers and starts to write again.
