Read full description of the books Nana, Vol. 3:The summer of 2008 I got into reading the shojo manga series, Nana by Ai Yazawa. I tore through volume 1 and volume 2 and volume 3. Unfortunately for posting reviews, my reading for fun often takes a back burner for challenges and books sent for review. I am trying now to change my priorities to bring the fun back into book blogging.
Nana is the tale of two young women both named Nana. Fate has brought the together to share an apartment in Tokyo. One Nana is in a rock band and the other one wants to be an art student. They both have had rocky love lives and part of their moves is a means of escape from those memories.
In Volume 3, things are starting to gel for the girls. Nana Osaki has teamed up again with the guitarist and drummer from her old band. They've found a new bass player and are ready to play some gigs again.
Nana Komsatsu isn't faring quite as well. She's still troubled by the "Demon Lord" whom she blames for her own bad luck and poor decisions. She's found a job but it's not what she expected. Instead of being an up and coming editor, she's basically now Ugly Betty.
In fact, it's the similarity in many ways to Ugly Betty that keeps me coming back to this series. I am reading volume 4 now and have volume 5 waiting in my to be read soon pile.
Read information about the authorAi Yazawa (矢沢 あい ,Yazawa Ai, born 1967-03-07 in Hyōgo Prefecture, Japan) is a Japanese manga author. Her pen name comes from Japanese singer Eikichi Yazawa, of whom she is a fan.
Yazawa started her manga publishing life in 1985; throughout 15 years of publishing, she wrote over 10 series in Ribon. While most of her manga continues to be published in Japan by Shueisha, publishers of Ribon and Cookie (in which Nana is serialized), series like Paradise Kiss now appear in other magazines such as Zipper, published by Shodensha.
Yazawa's most famous manga include Tenshi Nanka Ja Nai (I'm Not an Angel), Gokinjo Monogatari (Neighborhood Story), Paradise Kiss, and Nana. All five volumes of Paradise Kiss have been released in English by Tokyopop. Nana was formerly running in Shojo Beat and is now being released by Viz Media, bi-monthly. In Japan it continues to run in Cookie and is currently up to 80 chapters, plus three side story chapters about different characters' early lives. In 2003, she was awarded the Shogakukan Manga Award for Nana. Nana was made into an anime (produced by Madhouse Studios) and a successful movie with a sequel in Japan.
Yazawa's works are most popular among women and young girls. The storylines generally are centered on young women and their relationships, something with which her young fanbase identifies. The characters are always very stylish, and she is known especially for her hip sense of fashion. Yazawa herself attended a fashion school after high school but did not complete her studies there. Another key point is her strikingly unique, often rebellious characters, who tend to be juxtaposed against the more traditional ones.
She has also published three artbooks.
