Synopsis

Kaoru is a 17-year-old virgin who has an S&M fetish. He has always dreamt about an SM relationship with his childhood friend Nana, who is looked upon as perfect and is always the target of boys' eyes. Their relationship has somewhat deteriorated through the years, due to them hanging out with different people and because Kaoru is not taking his education too seriously.

One day though, Kaoru's mother gives some of his S&M toys to Nana for safekeeping - Nana finds the leather one-piece that Kaoru bought and tries it on but accidentally locks herself in it and doesn't have the key!

Kaoru frees her of the one-piece, but then Nana realizes she may like Kaoru's hobby more than she thought and subsequently the two of them start engaging in so-called "breathers". These breathers are intended to relieve Nana of stress, stress originating from her attempts at keeping her grades and her name perfect.

A butchery of the source material, really.

The premise is badly explained, as well as the motivations of both Nana and Kaoru.

The initial breather depicted was done fairly faithfully, though Nana's warring inner dialogues left a lot to be desired, and the pinnacle of the scene with Kaoru damaging the prop to get Nana out of it was omitted.

The second S&M scene was also poorly adapted, in the manga it was supposed to detail Kaoru's one lapse in control as a benevolent dom, but since they once again omitted the end of the scene, it just portrayed him as an asshole.

So I've been waiting for a Nana to Kaoru anime adaptation for some time now. And when it's here I couldn't help but feel, misled.

The thing that was so great about Nana to Kaoru Manga was because of the storyline and how the charactors develop though time. And also giving a view into the world of S&M. It taught us that it's not all about the sex! That it's alot about real love and stress relief. The ecchi was a bonus to say atleast.

Story:
And the story is practically none! This falls flat is basicly because they were focising sooooooo much on the ecchi it was read more

Well if you're curious or into S&M or simply find it funny, MM! deals with a M guy who has a bad case of it, however in MM! It's more about the comedy of dealing with it and some cute characters with a slight harem thing going on. Just don't expect actual S&M to take place (much).
Also MM! doesn't have nudity.
