They decide to move in together and despite their differences, introspective NANA and outgoing nana become firm friends. NANA finds a new bassist and reforms her old band, Black Stones. Unfortunately, nana finds that the course of true love does not always run smoothly. nana receives some good news, however, when she wins a pair of tickets to see her favorite band, the hit sensation TRAPNEST, in concert and invites NANA along.

The curtain goes up on the TRAPNEST concert and Ren steps onto the stage. NANA sits below in the front row of the audience. Her eyes fill with tears as memories come flooding back. Will NANA and Ren be reunited...?
A really good movie and story based off the popular manga/anime of the same name. I think this movie really did a great adaptation of the anime/manga which is often hard to do. The cast is top notch here with Miyazaki Aoi (Atsuhime, Junjo Kirari) and Mika Nakashima (Ryusei no Kizuna) playing the two Nana’s of the movie. Also several great co-stars with Hiroki Narimiya (Orange Days, Gokusen 2, Stand Up!), Kenichi Matsuyama (Detroit Metal City, Death Note, 1 Liter of Tears), Saeko (Dragon Zakura, Oishii Proposal, Nodame Cantabile) and more. The music is just plain good, a mix of rock and pop that will really get you into the movie. Mika sings "Glamorous Sky" as one of the main songs and "Endless Story" sung by Yuna Ito (also in the movie) highlight the musical side.
You’ll be touched by the story and enjoy it from beginning to end. Fans of the anime/manga will enjoy it and those that haven’t seen it will be just as entertained..
