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.

Oh, YaY! You've made me excited for it now. I knew Hachi would be perfect. Glad to hear the others are good too. ^_^

I just hope the Takumi mispronunciation doesn't carry on into where he's more important. That would get annoying. I've actually heard that name mispronunced somewhere in English too. Hm.

The ending change seems strange to me. Especially since I love A Little Pain (although it did go on as the ending for a long time, it seemed.). :( Luckily, I love Starless Night too, but I don't like it when stuff is messed with like that.

Not sure if I'll get time to watch today... I all of the sudden have a million things to do. o.o; For me, anyways.

By the way, if you see the English Honey and Clover, let me know how it is. I've been meaning to watch it since you mentioned it, and that way if it's good, I can Netflix it. ^_^ Actually, I already have in on the list, but way down at the moment.

I was so excited for the anime!! I have it as well!!
I so love it! Yes Nana O. takes a lot of getting used too, but after a few episodes I was fine with her. She does sound like a stoner though,lol.
I felt like crying when Nobu showed up at room 707, its so horrible how things turned out with him and Hachi.
