Audience Member not as good as the first one, but still pretty solid. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member The change of cast was really bad. And i now wish i would have read the anime to see that all comming...i liked the 1st but wasnt as huge a fan of this one... although nobu's character got cooler in this one by far! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Annoying cast changes. Horribly frustrating ending. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member And it continues on. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member NANA has always been more than just an anime or manga to me, it was my salvation for many years and I cannot tell you how many times I've rewatched the series/read the manga/watched the movies. My review for NANA 2 is very similar to that of the second half of the anime; I wish Hachi was stronger in her female role to take charge of her life without having Takumi live it for her. In NANA 2, we see a drastic change in Osaki's personality and hostility towards the ever advancing Takumi on her poor and innocent best friend. They called Trapnest just that for a reason, right? Those who are bigger fans would understand the meaning behind it! Continuing, we also see how Shin and Nobu change as well [ albeit aside from Shin's new actor, which I actually enjoyed more than NANA1 ] and grow in their friendship as well as Nobu's love for Hachi. I enjoyed the Nobu/Hachi love for how long it lasted, and it really brought out a lot more aspects than the last movie on their growing relationship. Of course all good things must come to an end, and Takumi is such a possessive and jealous nit! When I discovered they were keeping with the manga, I was thrilled even if it was very short lived for Nobu and Nana. I would've loved to have seen Hachi stand up for herself, but of course we all know she's far too innocent to speak out that often, yes? The only complaint I honestly really have is the switch in actors/actresses. Otherwise, I believe this movie did exactly what it needed to and got the message across. I really hope they do a third installment and continue to follow the manga, and thus far I really hope that Ai continues the manga! We've been waiting for so long at the edge of our seats to know Nana O's whereabouts! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member The first one is better than this sequel film based on the manga comic book. I was surprised that a sequel was eventually made, unfortunately <i>Nana 2</i> fails to live up to the previous film's success and instead seems like a rushed, ill-conceived and confused sequel featuring "best of" moments from the comic and anime but with little of the emotional impact. Nakashima Mika again does admirable work as the enigmatic and alluring Nana O. She is the best thing about the movie and her scenes are always enjoyable to watch. I was little disappointed to see Aoi Miyazaki as Hachi in the previous <i>Nana</i> film didn't appear in this sequel, Yui Ichikawa, who replaced as the new Hachi, is average in her acting. And there went for character Ren too. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Read all reviews
