Hitoiro is the theme song to “NANA 2”, the sequel and the last installment to the movie series, which is based on the gigantic and growing franchise of Ai Yazawa’s NANA. The song is sung by Mika Nakashima, who obviously plays Oosaki Nana. She reprises the role in the sequel, which is great because most of the original actors got replaced. Could you imagine the chaos that would befall on us all if the main character was replaced?

The song along with the PV are unique; they don’t follow the mould that was used in the first movie. (Read More »»»)

Stolen Borrowed from Nana-Nana.net

Ooooh, the anticipation is rising and this trailer only adds fuel to the fire. The biggest issue with NANA 2 is all the new actors. There’s a new Shin, a new Ren, and even a new Hachi, to name the big changes. Will we be able to live without a Shin who looks older than his character is supposed to be? Will we be able to live without a Ren who has a stoney expression for most of the movie? Will be be able to live without a Hachi who is so devestatingly cute that… well, she’s cute.

Unfortunately, the trailer doesn’t really answer those questions, but after watching the it, I couldn’t help but think that it may not be so bad at all. (Read More »»»)

“A moment like this! Some people wait for a life time…” lalala..lalala…laa… *doesn’t know the words*

I am one happy fangirl at the end of this episode. It was da bomb. Total ownage. No, PWNAGE! It pwned everything that’s ever been pwned in this world! IT IS THE MOST SUPERIOR THING EVAR~

I haven’t gotten so worked up about a NANA episode for what seems like forever! It’s really been a long time since something REALLY MAJOR has happened. While watching this episode, my world was in a whirl and time to do stuff was running out, but I forgot everything and had a squeeling fest once…that happened. Hah. (Read More »»»)

“Truth” is one of the two theme songs to the second NANA live-action movie. Just like the first movie, the themes are sung by Yuna Ito and Mika Nakashima, who star as Reira and Oosaki Nana. The actors who are the TRAPNEST band members also take their roles in the music video… although I can’t tell if they’re actually playing the instruments or not. It doesn’t look very convincing, but I might be wrong.

The video is obviously not filmed in Japan, but Scotland rather. The scenery just so darn pretty, courtesy of the magnificent ancient caslte in the background. I don’t know where they found the idea to film at this location, but it’s a gold-mine! Reira’s dressed in lavish gowns of red and white, which give off a more elegant feeling this time around. They could have made better use of all the prettiness of Scotland, I think, but the redundancy of the scenes play well into the song.

306. NANA ep 26 – BLAST wants world domination

For the past few episodes, I feel that NANA was going through a waning point. Even though the story was interesting… after an episode finished, there was no substance left behind to work with. To me, those episodes sort of just flew right through my head. It was like drinking orange juice without pulp; you take the juice in your mouth and it tastes good and all, but once you swallow it, there’s nothing left over to chew on.

However, I feel that with episode 26, that waning point is coming to an end. It didn’t fully finish, but it will, SOON!!! Bwah! That’s just my opinion though.

If you really observe the episode with a triple thick magnifying glass, then you will see that there weren’t many things that happened. In my perspective, there were two points or “halves” to this episode. First half; the concert and Blast’s sudden popularity and then the second half; the loneliness, the latter being the greater subject of my reflectioning-ness. (Read More »»»)

299. NANA ep 25 – Whoa much?

“A man and a woman…when they just get together driven by lust…can they be tied together by love?”

Love and lust are un-avoidably entwined. Without one, the other couldn’t exist. One leads to another, and another… leads the person nowhere. We humans are confused creatures, with wants and needs that over-rate anything else in this world. Our brain is so intricate and complicated, that we ourselves cannot decipher its meaning. The yearning for a loved one will be confused with the craving for passion, and hence, the current story-line of NANA is born.

~~~

And this is what our Hachiko is going through. This girl is lost, empty and lonely. She’s vulnerable, and she’s been a ditz since her early ages already. Dangerous combination! Anything can happen to ruin your life when you’re like that, ESPECIALLY when you’re as easily swayed as Hachi.

hehe =m=

Lust. Self-indulgent of sexual desires. To give free reign to…to take unrestrained pleasure in…to yield to the desire of…gratifying ones desires… An uncontrolled and passionate craving that will blind you, take over your mind, and will drown you, and hyptonize you… and make you sleep with bastards like Takumi-yaro!! Love. Has many definations. Has many uses. Has many consequences. Lust, and Love. Love, and Lust. Which one is it? Which one will you choose, Hachi? Hmmmmmmmm?

~~~

Oh man, this episode. It’s intense. It kills. And it kills Hachiko even more. Haha, foolish woman. See what happens when you let lust blind your senses???

But my favourite part of the episode was after the 14:11 mark. When Nana is in her antique bathtub (can you really clean yourself in that?) and the wind magically carries her beautiful voice across to the ears of Hachi and Nobu, who are in a very awkward moment by the pretty lake. That whole scene, of Nana singing “Rose” which closely interwines with Hachi and Nobu outside with their dialogue interchanging with verses from the song was so WELL DONE and ARTISTIC, it made me giggle.

292. NANA ep 23 – You Belong to Me!!!

Everyone is hooking up with everyone, and all of a sudden, your world is so small. A good example of this would be when Nana and Yasu were saying how Trapnest was snatching them of everyone important in their lives. Yasu’s situation was especially funny though; Reira left to Tokyo, his best friend followed along, and his band’s lead singer is their lead guitarist’s woman. Then in the end, you see Reira buying out Nobu for a night. Haha Yasu, haha.

It reminds me of how in my own life, how all of a sudden, everyone started to know each other and my world just got a little smaller then.

A prominent theme in this episode was… I’m not sure how to put it into words, but.. “You Belong to Me”? When someone dear to us gets taken by another, it pains our heart. It hurts us to see them with someone else, and before you know it, you start to claim rights over a human being. It’s hard to explain, isn’t it? Why we start to think like this… When you love someone enough, why is it that we begin to think of them as “ours”? We have no ownership over another human being, but when you spend enough time with someone, something gets triggered inside of our hearts and we start to claim rights over them. Is it a sign of affection, of jealously or merely just selfishness? Many of the characters had this sort of feeling in this episode.
