Worth Watching – NANA, a tale of two

NANA - Two Nanas

If I were to make a list of shows in desperate need of a license rescue, the classic NANA would definitely be on it.  If it was available, there’s a whole bunch of people (including your humble author) who would be constantly talking it up.  In the meantime, it’s story has inspired a number of AMV’s that are very much worth watching.

Hit the jump, and let’s explore!

Anime Playlist – an update.

Haven’t posted anything about my anime playlist in a bit, so I guess it’s time to update with my latest additions and thoughts.

Recent Additions:

Recovery of an MMO Junkie
Net-juu no Susume / “Recommendation of the Wonderful Virtual Life”
Saturday Night Question – Megumi Nakajima

Rewatched MMO Junkie a couple of months back – and realized that I watched and listened to the OP every time.  Maybe I didn’t fall in love the first time around, but I certainly did this time.

Runner-ups:

Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!
(Eizōken ni wa Te o Dasu na!)
Chelmico – Easy Breezy

I watched the OP every single week, and loved it. But when I listened to the complete song, I didn’t like it so much. Still, wanted to share it because it’s a fun tune.  And an anime very much worth watching if you haven’t.

My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!
Otome Gēmu no Hametsu Furagu Shika Nai Akuyaku Reijō ni Tensei Shite Shimatta
angela – There’s More Than Just One Route For a Maiden!

Another song that fell into the “great OP, didn’t like the full song” category…  I think I liked the OP because of how neatly the music and animation were integrated.  You don’t often see it so very well done.
