NANA Part 1


NANA part 1 came in the mail today! I'm super excited... but at the same time, I feel pretty sure that I'm too used to and in love with the Japanese version to enjoy the English version that much. Usually, I love English dubs, but this is a special case. So I'm kind of scared to watch it.

I do think that the Hachi voice actress will be great. I mean she plays Barbie in the Barbie movies (which I tend to love, so shush.). And isn't Hachi just a little Japanese Barbie doll? On the other hand, she does Sango in InuYasha, so I feel like she can do the more serious side of Hachi too.

I'm going to try to watch the English version at least once all the way through. I have to give it a chance. Of course, even if I don't care for it... and even if I'm too used to the fansubs to even like the official subs (this was the case with The Girl who Leapt Through Time), I'm happy to legitimately own NANA. <3 I should really be doing that with the manga more too. Even though I hate thinking I'm supporting the people who translated volume 2. ~_~; Nana, man. Ugh. I really hope it's gotten better since then.
