Nana Komatsu & Osaki Cosplay





Originally a shōjo manga by mangaka Ai Yazawa, The manga derives its title from the name of the two main characters, both of whom are called Nana. What sets them apart, however, is the stark difference between their personalities. Nana Komatsu (aka Haichi) has a childlike innocence and tends to lose touch with reality, while the other Nana Osaki is a strong, self-confident singer in a punk band.

Cosplayers are Kaori and Hinata from Taiwan.

Elderly would like to thank Kawaii Princess Poine, who manages one of the classiest personal blogs your likely to see. Take a visit leave a comment, and do, if you do nothing else this evening, check out her extraordinary taste in music.

see all "Nana" posts

She looks cool, but there's no topping Mika Nakashima as Nana. She was just perfect for that role.

Yo! Read this article :) I never knew Hinata and Kaori were semi-famous..
You're just finding out, but I knew of them. This article was written sometime in late January.. I was looking for other info I had seen on the main site and saw a picture of them..

J I never saw the film, but the screen grabs would have me fully agreeing with you..

Hi Poine
Wow. semi famous is right, wonder how they got the part in the video..

the forum posts are a great find.. have to admit though Kaori is my favourite. i've added the links above, and thanks again for getting back so soon

The film wasn't all that to be honest, but the 2 Nana's girls are played well.

Kawaii Princess Poine said...

Well, I know they went to the opening of the anime.. and they were on TV for something before the video.. so that would be a step up.

Hinata really has more of an advantage when Kaori really has to pull everything off. Though I don't have a favorite really, Kaori's outfits are more difficult.

Glad to help:)

I remember watching and enjoying the first episode of the anime on Dailymotion, though i never seemed to find the time to follow up. Pity the film was a let down J...

The images and forum links were a great addition Poine, they added a great "insider" element,
