the story took place after the end of Nana (2005). while the 2 Nanas continued to live together, their love life went 2 different directions. punkish Nana managed to get back together with Ren, the guitarist from a popular band called Trapnest. while another Nana got together with Takumi, the bassist. however, being a player himself, Takumi paid not much attention to Nana after sleeping with her, which was forced to change after she got pregnant.
although Nana (2005) was highly successful and sincere, with lovable characters and captivating relationships; Nana 2 (2006) was missing everything. with many of the bigger casts being changed, especially the cute Nana and Ren, the feeling was all lost. the new Nana tried a little too hard to be cute, not a natural thus made her character felt fake and disgusting. even though the story tried to present the depressing side of their friendship by going their separate ways, it was not enough to engage our feelings nor tears due to its unbelieving casts.
