"NANA" Songstresses Rule!
Written by Lisa Lam
As a fan, you have to know that this brand "NANA," can not only churn out the coolest manga, anime, and movie, but songstresses too! Mika Nakashima has just been voted by "Oricon Style" readers to be the "No. 1 Coolest Female Singer in Japan." She is acknowledged for her great sense of fashion, and ever changing images to match with projects that she take under her wing. Through her fashion, she has been able to express her individuality and show a sense of style that no other in the industry can quite match up to. Mika is also taking the title of being the "No. 2 Sexiest Female Singer in Japan." To be voted so high in an important music poll, shows that Mika is not only a woman that people can relate to, but her mysterious personality creates a longing for her presence.
"NANA the Movie" have also captured the hearts of "Oricon Style" readers. They have voted Mika Nakashima and Aoi Miyazaki to be the "No. 1 Most Appealing Female(s)" for the DVD category. The two girls' friendship onscreen touched the hearts of many audiences. It was greatly appreciated that "NANA" had not one lead star, but TWO. Yuna Ito and Mika Nakashima were also noted for the wonderful songs they were able to provide for the movie. These wonderful details helped put Mika and Aoi of "NANA" in the No. 1 spot, beating out Kyoko Fukada of "Shitatusma Monogatari," who ranked in 2nd.
And FINALLY, cover images of "NANA" anime CD singles have been released. Depending on whether you buy the (Single+DVD) version, or the regular version, you will receive a different cover for each. To continue emptying your wallets, there are now "NANA Anime Mini Capsules" for you to collect. There are 7 in total, and can be obtained by inserting 100 yen into one of those gashapon machines in Japan. Lastly, new "NANA" merchandise have been added to "Mekke." Good luck with collecting everything! (Your poor wallets...)
"MTV Japan Music Video Awards 2006" will be taking place tomorrow night on May 27th 2006. If you are in Japan or have satellite TV, don't forget to watch it! Mika Nakashima and Yuna Ito are both nominees at the ceremony! Anna Tsuchiya will make an appearance there as well. So tune in for your fellow "NANA" songstresses!
