Definitely one of my fave manga and anime series.  It's about two girls friendship and the bond that they will share. 

Nana Osaki is a punk singer who wants to debut with her band as soon as possible to leave her ex-boyfriend, Ren Honjo, behind. Nana was the lead vocalist in their old band with Ren, and they lived together as lovers. When Ren is offered a chance to debut in Tokyo as a replacement member of the popular band Trapnest (T-Nest for short), Nana chooses to cultivate her own band, Black Stones (BlaSt for short) instead.

Nana Komatsu, the other Nana, is called Hachi (after Hachikō) as she has weak mental characteristics that resemble a puppy. With a habit of falling in love at first sight, Hachi has always depended on other people to help her. When her friends and then boyfriend leave for Tokyo, she decides to join them a year later after having saved enough money.

Nana and Hachi meet in a train by chance, both on their way to Tokyo. After a string of coincidences, they come to live together in an apartment numbered 707. Despite having contrasting characters and ideals, the Nanas like and respect each other.

While the Black Stones begin to gain popularity at live gigs, other issues need resolving, especially in the areas of romance. The story of Nana revolves heavily on the romance and relationships of the two characters as one seeks fame and recognition while the other seeks love and happiness. (courtesy of Wikipedia)

I watched this about 2 months ago and loved it..def one of my faves so far, even with the lack of a proper ending.

I'm glad you posted this series :) I was just thinking about it recently. I'm very sad it's unfortunately been on a hiatus for so long. It's one of the best slice of life/drama/romances I've ever read. The character relationships are just so amazing and believable...and I think Nana O. is so dynamic. I like how she changes throughout the story, seeming very tough and untouchable in the beginning but later being revealed to have weaker and sadder moments also. The Nana/Hachi friendship is so sad :'( I've always hoped the series could end more on the bright side than darker but we'll see...

It's great !!I hope new chapter of manga will come soon..

I finished seeing of this anime just some days ago. This is really chic anime. My heart was so excited from time to time. <br />

Both of Nanas are vulnerable. Hachi can’t to make an important choice in her life. Hachi’s first decision shocked me. When her boyfriend invite her to live together in Tokyo she denied because of living with Nana in the 707 room. Nana was unfamiliar girl to Hachi that time. What is more Hachi can’t to say NO Takumi and it causes break relations with Nobu.<br />
<br />
Nana Osaki think that her career is more important that love and happiness. It is her decision but I can’t understand it. Nana and Ren is a beautiful couple and I hope they will can to save their relations.<br />

Nana and Hachi became more than friends. I saddened that they didn’t involved in sexual relations between themselves. It would be nice.
