Nana Volume 7, by Ai Yazawa

Nana Osaki’s Blast continues to climb up higher on the steps of fame as volume seven unfolds. With the band taking off and making it big, Hachi realizes that her game of being the head cheerleader of Blast starts to complicate as there are more and more diehard fans dedicating all of themselves to Queen Nana and the rest of Blast. Consequently, Hachi feels unaccompanied in room 707 as her friends chase after their dreams on the stage and she remains in the kitchen cooking all alone. Hachi is left questioned whether she would be happy with the charming cold Takumi or answer to the new happiness that knocks on her door.

Nana Volume 7, by Ai Yazawa, is the story goes on, we began to see the absurd Hachi becoming more eloped with all sorts of trouble. This makes me want to just give Hachi a warm hug and tell her that everything will be just fine. At this point of the story, I have realized that the amazing style of Ai Yazawa’s writing made me get very emotionally attached to all of the Nanas. In addition, I keep on being amazed at the new characters and situations while maintaining a good cadence with the old ones. I really do enjoy this book and the bonding I encounter with it in every step of the way.
