Seventeen-year-old Nanaka Kirisato is a high school student serious about her studies and goals in life. She frequently criticizes her best friend, Nenji Nagihara, for being a childish delinquent who spends his time fighting other boys. Then one day, after a heated argument with Nenji, she falls off a flight of stairs and suffers a brain injury, resulting in her mind reverting to that of a six-year-old. With this in mind, Nanaka's father and Nenji must keep her injury a secret as she struggles to live a normal life and grow up all over again.

This will be a phrase you will hear often in this series, as Nanaka often tends to blurt it out whenever she is under any kind of pressure.

Story 7/10
This title stays tried and true to the basic "memory lost" storyline you probably have seen before, however it does have a unique aspect to it. For one, Nanaka does not suffer this through the whole storyline like you would expect, nope, in fact about half way through the series she begins to slip in and out of her two different age personifies. Which is a nice touch and helps to keep the series from becoming bland! read more

I give this anime an 82/100

I first came across this little anime after finishing watching Nobody's Boy Remi on Anime News Network. I had run out of anime to watch and felt like starting on some new ones. Thankfully, Nanaka 6/17 turned out to be a fine little anime for me to watch before school started for me.

So basically it's about two kids who grow apart upon entering high school. Nanaka's the studious girl and Nenji's the delinquent. Then, they get into an argument and Nanaka gets a brain injury which causes her to suffer from 'Backwards Aging Syndrome' as I call it. She's turned read more

If I got a dollar for every time someone fainted unnecessarily in this show that will still not be enough money for me to watch this show again. Decent story with elements to be something great but masked behind annoying, flat characters.

This is a very odd show. Nanaka is a complete bitch as a 17-year-old, and yet as a little kid, she is so troublesome and odd little girl. Nenji is no better, being high strong and easy to get into fights. The story is rather cute even if it’s annoying in some places. At first, I thought it would be a real magical girl show but it seems that I was so wrong. The only thing magical girl about this show is the odd pieces every once in a while when they have a Magical Domiko pieces. I get why they have that breaking the read more
