Announces the End of Filming
Translated by Lisa
A special press conference was held in Tokyo on July 7th, 2005, to announce the completion of the film, "NANA the Movie." Most of the main cast members in the movie like Mika Nakashima, Aoi Miyazaki, Ryuhei Matsuda, and Hiroki Narimiya were in attendance. They discussed scenes from the movie and posed for the members of the press. ^__^ I thought it was super creative to have this press conference on July 7th. Get the joke? Ha ha. Enjoy!

Mika Nakashima and Aoi Miyazaki, both stars of "NANA Movie," made a special appearance for a press conference in Tokyo (which officially announced the completion of the movie) on July 7th, 2005. "NANA the Movie," is based off of the super famous NANA manga by Ai Yazawa, which has already sold over 23 million copies. The story is about two girls (starring Mika and Aoi), both coincidentally named Nana, who became friends and are striving for their dreams.
Mika Nakashima admitted that she was a fan of the manga before the movie; So she was really happy when she got casted for the role of Oosaki Nana. The other star of the movie, Aoi Miyazaki, said about her own character, "Her personality (Komatsu Nana) is very different from me. She is such a free spirit. I felt this role was very refreshing." Aside from the two main stars in the movie, other casts members like Ryuhei Matsuda, Hiroki Narimiya, and Tetsuji Tamayama (and many more) also made an appearance at the press conference. The movie is set to be released in theaters on September 3rd, 2005.
