This is what NANA is about:
Nana Komatsu is on her way to Tokyo; finally she can be with her boyfriend after being in a long distance relationship for a year! On the train there, Nana Komatsu meets Nana Osaki – a girl who goes by the same name as her but seems to be everything Nana Komatsu isn't: cool, smart and a punk rocker. The two hit it off and spend the entire trip getting to know each other, but when they arrive in Tokyo, it seems that circumstances separate them forever.
But fate isn't done with them yet. While looking for an apartment, the paths of the two nanas cross again. They decide to share an apartment and become best friends in no time. Nana K. must learn to be independent and grow up while Nana O. works to become famous with her band; but together they learn about love and loss and the growth that comes with it.
