Maybe it's just me, but I can't help but wonder if

Oh, well. Still a nice episode regardless, and "Airhead" Nana is still cute... esp. with the short hair, IMHO.

If they had followed the mangas pacing, they would have lost tons of viewers...
I personally didnt find the manga very interesting at all until the 2 nanas met..

My thoughts were that having skipped a volume already in the first episode, they now have to go back and do what they're doing now. I find the shift in time a bit jarring, IMHO. Whether others think so or otherwise, no idea.

You're very welcome, dear. and i'm looking forward to next week, counting on you.
That was actually really fun, wasn't it? Unlike wrex was thinking, i'm a guy and can somehow manage to do two things at the same time. lol
Anyway, wrex, i'm sure you were better off with your girlfriend. I think i would probably have done the same if i had one. boohoo
( mippa don't get mad, we all know you are waiting for your man, if you don't mind me saying^^ )

I'm quite pleased with how they are arranging things. I wasn't interested in NANA until after I read the first two volumes, so I believe starting from volume 2 and going back to volume 1 was the correct choice.

Can't wait for Nobu~ <3

Nana big hit in first week

Nana debuted at number five in last week's top ten anime by number of viewers. This is outstanding for a late-night show, almost none of which ever hit the top ten. It was even ahead of Naruto. Honey & Clover started the trend of late-night josei anime, but Nana in its first week had 50% more viewers than that had in any week of its run (as I recall the figures).

Downloading to watch for the first time.... glad to hear that. More H&C and Nana type shows might just move that dysfunctional edge of anime more into the mainstream (much as Simpsons and Futurama almost made cartoons "normal" adult fare.)

The manga for this was so exciting at every moment and the character development was incredible. The anime is living up pretty well I'd say, it keeps more viewers to start with the segment where Nana and Nana meet because it's just interesting. I have a feeling it'll continue and keep going really well, I haven't felt so excited to watch an anime like this in a while. Thanks Live-eviL for doing a fast/great job! ^___^

Lets just hope Nana can keep good figures and not take a hard tumble downward. But I cant wait for later episodes when the real drama begins.

I freaking squealed when I saw the anime version at AnimeSuki. I was very disappointed with the movie (I'm sorry, the only thing good in that movie was the actress that played Nana Osaki and the music). I was a little fearful I'd be disappointed, but damn! It's amazing. I totally understood that they had to make it shorter than the first volume of the manga. The art is amazing, very loyal to the original one (hurray for Ai Yazawa!) and the music... Oh man, the music. I loved it; the opening and ending were amazing.

I can't wait for the second episode. Live-eviL! Hurry up and feed us awaiting fans. :D

I just saw episode 2 and Im really suprised that they stuck to the manga 100% no changes what so ever. Even lines were identical to the manga. I agree too that they will probably spend about 3 to 4 eps on the backgrounds of the two Nanas. I also wonder if this will even be a 52 episode series since volume 1 will be about 3-4 eps and the manga is now about 14 volumes long. However, I can see it being a 26 ep series if they begin to cut out material. But at the pace this is going I hope that everything will be covered and this wont be rushed at all like parakiss was.

I think it's good they stick 100% to the manga. Pity they skipped vol 1 that treated their story before meeting in the train. Actually if they show that most ppl will be lost in events to come.

This is reminding me more and more of Honey & Clover. Not because the story is the same, but because they are sticking so close to the manga (except for reshuffling a bit). And this is a very good thing.

Has anyone fell in love with Nana's new ED done by the ever lovely Olivia?

I heard that after going on a 2 year hiatus, she springs back with this powerful song.

I love it.
