- Nana Osaki (Nana)
Nana Osaki is a music lover (which is why she has a punk band) and shows herself as a tough, strong and determined girl. She is usually the voice of reason and becomes a bit aggressive trying to get her friends to reflect well on their situation, although sometimes she can’t help but break down.
Her childhood was not particularly easy, as she was abandoned by her mother and had to take care of her grandmother. On top of that, her adulthood isn’t the best either: although she has a band and is well known, she also has some problems trusting others. But when she decides that you’re someone special, she’ll fight for you to the point where it’s bordering on obsessive.
Her moments of weakness become much more frequent throughout the manga, and the thing is that at a given moment, horrible news shake both hers and her friends’ mood.
The truth is that, in a way, Nana is an example of how life is not always the way you want it to be and she is a victim of its crudity, but the important thing is that she is always looking for a way to deal with it by leaning on her loved ones.
In addition, it conveys a strong message of not being carried away by anyone and fighting for your dreams, even if that means having to make some sacrifices along the way.
We could have delved deeper into her personality, as she promises a lot, although the manga stoppage has prevented us from knowing much more about her.
