I think you are open-minded and fair and that's cool. Nana is not the most up-lifting show out there and it's acceptable and understandable to be turned off by all the pathos that is being thrown at you. You are right, the show likes to end lots of its episodes on a cliffhanger, usually not a happy one, it's a technique you see often used to keep people's interest up between episodes, "what happens next?"

If the entire show was pushed 15 minutes forward, and the middle of each episode turned out to be the end of the episode, and the cliffhanger was a happy one, you would probably feel and remember the happy moments more, despite the story and narration being the same.

I wanted to be sure you did not like the show unjustifiably for the wrong reasons, that would have been too bad, but I think you cornered most of Nana in a reasonable fashion.

I'll only say that both Nana Komatsu and Nana Osaki end up being fairly happy at the end of the show despite all the twists here and there, maybe that will help you complete the serie.

Opinions are cool, I just think you did not get to experience the anime fully by only watching one part of the show, aka Hachi's arc. I also suspect that you read the manga judging by your spoiler, what you spoiled is not part of the anime, the anime is only a take on a bit more than half the manga current story.

I am also a bit disoriented by your take on the drama aspect of the story, sad and happy moments are both present all along and happen continuously simultaneously, maybe by only watching half the show, the half that resolves for the most part around Nana Komatsu's love stories, you got to see more of the sad moments, Nana Komatsu falls in love easily, there is no happy ending to her condition, she will never be at peace, at least not through a normal loving relation with another person, (she fills that void another way in the 2nd part of the show) or you selectively remember the sad moments and forget the happy ones.

Life is not a rainbow fairy tale, it has its ups and downs, and what you wanted, believed, wished for when you were young rarely happens to be what you have or be when you grow up, but that's not necessarily bad or sad, there is happiness to be found everywhere, even where you did less expect to find it. I think Nana conveys that message pretty well, and if you forget the happy moments, you are missing the picture.

Hello, I'm sad you did not like Nana much, I would suggest to maybe start watching it again from episode 20 or so, where you stopped.

The first 20 episodes are for the most part Nana Komatsu's arc, while the next 20 episodes are Nana Osaki's arc, you will most likely find the 2nd part more rock & roll.

i never understand the "Kou is not Kou anymore" in the first place,he just grow older and people change with time.If they get married will she start crying after 3 years because he changed...I thought she loved him before he moved away?So why all those struggles I:


So, the bottom line is, is that she's struggling to understand if she loves Kou as a person, or just his former personality.

Nice answer
