Voted for Miu- she is the most stable and reasonable girl (along with Junko) in the whole series. I just love her with Yasu.
I guess now I will startle you. My second favourite minor Nana character is... Yuri. Before starting to shout "How can you? Yuri is such a bitch!", please, read my post carefully.
A number of people hates Yuri, cuz she is an "obstacle" for Nobuo and Hachi's relationship. Ok, she can be bitchy but wouldn't you guys be If you were in her shoes? You fall in love with a guy, who unfortunately still has got some feelings for his ex. You propose that you will help him to forget about her and he agrees. Everything goes fine, he starts to care about you but then the ex who is already a wife of somebody else appears. Wouldn't you be jealous? Don't tell me you would be nice to her and give her the guy back because you are oh-so-gentle. Hachi has chosen Takumi- not Nobuo and she still can't put herself together and be mature and responsible for her own decision. She is not a teenager- she is an adult woman who should use her brain more often. Despite her difficult personality, in the contradiction to Hachi, Yuri is a mature woman- she thinks about Nobu only, she doesn't cheat on him an is sincere to him. She went all the way to Osaka only for him. She tried to quit her job even despite the fact it would cause her a lot of problems, only because of him. Why the hate? Calling her whore because she is an AV actress? God, this is so shallow. If she is a whore, what would you call Hachi, who goes on a first date and has a sex immediately, even if she doesn't know the guy well (eg. Takumi)? Forget about Takumi, she couldn't wait a freaking few days to not take off Nobu's pants. Same thing with Shouji- "I will sleep with you, if you tell me you love me". And Hachi is totally fine, pure and we should pity her that she couldn't be with her love. Facepalm.
Anyways, if you don't like Yuri because her personality annoys you, it's totally understandable. Everyone has got their own tastes and right to say them. But if you hate Yuri only because you are NobuxHachi fangirl, just don't be narrow-minded and think about Yuri's feelings. Think about how good to Nobu she could be. I feel that in the depths of her heart she is a good girl and if Nobuo loved her as much as he loved Hachi, she wouldn't be bitchy at all. She acts like that because she doesn't feel the stability from the guy she really loves and all the time she is worried if he won't dump her for Hachi.
Don't get me wrong. I like Hachi and I dont want to offend her but she deserved her fate.
