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.

If the ...

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, mislead.

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, but that it can and is in this original work alot about REAL LOVE and stress relief. The ecchi was a bonus to say the least.

And the story is practically none! This falls flat is basicly because they ...

Ok, I know I'm not suppose to make a review on the 1st ep of an anime (OVA doesn't count), but after viewing this kind of horror(that's just me) i suddenly realize that this thing is not my cuppa tea.So how do I rate this OVA? Here's how:

Story - Dreadful number 2.

Frist of all the story of this OVA is very simple.................there's isn't any, it's all about the masochistic Nana who feels arouse by Kauro's sadistic and perverted psychological maneuvers.

Art - Very Good number 8.

I like the way Nana was drawn and how the people were drawn too.
