Nana to Kaoru thread. Because I want to. Starting where I left off yesterday.
Back when this shit series wasn't so shit
So is the regular series over?
The last brether was boring, and Arashi is even more boring.
nope. still going.
And that's that chapter.
One aspect of this series I don't like is how Nana is always portrayed as this helpless character carrying a big burden.
Would you like to know more
The next volume release in my country will surpass the fantranslations. Need to know how this arc ends.
Still going, but Kaoru's in Okinawa for a while.
And that means Nana has to hang out with Tachi more.
Maybe they'll visit Mitsuko!
Just read the last chapter.
I hope the series goes on for a long time, it's the only decent BDSM manga I know.
Speaking of that. Wasn't this getting localized in the states?
Not that user, but I'll second your hope.
Wew. Too lewd.
I love spats
No Tachi, no life.
You'll never explore BDSM with your childhood friend
man, even 2d asians have zero ass.
You will never have a big titted female friend with which you can practice BDSM regularly.
Reading this manga is suffering
still havnt said they love eachother
The amount of teasing this manga has has gotten stupid. I hate both MCs, only flat and brown is fun. It doesnt help that I know the BDSM community and they are all fucking crazy people in the not good way.
They've confessed to each other at the end of Arashi.
We just have to wait for the normal story to reach summer vacation, then see if it continues after a timeskip.
Tachi > Nana
We are past the summer vacation Black took place in by now, or so multiple dicussion forums have led me to belive due to when their break took place.
Next time on NtK, some naughty stuff happens. I hope you enjoyed.
they will never fuck
life is pain
inb4 muh black label
They fucked in Black Label?
I don't remember that. Is it implied?
I thought Black took place after the end of the main series.
Given how they keep talking about the "end" of breathers, and in black they talk about "after" breathers...
The rope session they had was intimate, but it ended with a kiss.
They were still dressed when they woke up.
No. It did get intense, but I think it was explicitly stated that Kaoru didn't want to fuck her yet.
It takes place on the last summer before the last year of preparatory. I think.
Is Arashi still going? That shit was dumb but lewd as fuck.
This. Same reason here.
Ended. Main book is still going.
Kaoru tied up a pornstar not long ago.
Black? No, finished... 2 years ago? Brilliant ending.
Kaoru tied up a pornstar not long ago
What with the sameface for the heroine for all his manga? Even same hair style
American fans often complain about it so I guess not though I am not sure.
The other countries started the two series years ago.
God this was so unnecessary, fucking cuck japs and their insert NTR shit
I honestly think Ryuta just lost steam for the Okinawa arc, it lost a certain something for me.
Quite frankly it killed the series for me, all that forced drama being prolonged that far, unbearable really.
I think "Please end now. Please." sums up my feelings. It was a brilliant series, the sooner it wraps things up (and maybe moves onto another pov?) the better.
Get it out of your systems now. This is going to be happening for a while.
You know, I find it strange no other mangas have tried to copy NtK.
Isn't Nanan to Kaoru kinda succesful in Japan? It even got anime and a Live Action.
It even got anime
It got some Mini-OAV. Not anime.
I wonder if it's one of those situations where it's so unique, anything similar would look like an imitation? You can't really tell a bdsm-heavy story without looking like an ntk clone, but you need some way of talking about the relationship in a way that explores deeper undercurrents while still remaining interesting (=sexy) for the skim reader.
Also, noone does monologue like the mangaka does. That's a big part of it.
Still, it looked good. And there were 2 live actions.
It sells kinda well in my country but no idea about Japan. I once searched for sale numbers but never found any. Considering the existence of Arashi and how many volumes the main series has I'd guess it sells at least decently though.
Are there any other manga that deal with this topic in a non-comically way? People often mention Sundome but I wouldn't count that as actual bdsm.
Well, you can always turn the tables and make a manga about a sadistic young women that discovers BDSM with a male partner.
Anyways, the whole BDSM with romantic undertones seems to sell well. It's strange noody else tries to capitalize in it.
Sundome it's more about a sadistic girl that tortures someone, but he's not a masochist. It's not BDSM-ish.
Vol.12 reached 10th place in the weekly charts. That's a pretty big deal. There's a reason they moved it from one magazine to another.
There is a Western comic which I won't name which does it with a lesbian couple very well. I do think they could spin the story several different ways, but it still runs the risk of looking derivative. Then again, that never stopped anyone...
There is a Western comic which I won't name which does it with a lesbian couple very well.
yes. also very well-written, somewhat more realistic setting.
500 years later, still not a couple
It's really good. Nice characters, pretty artstyle (them outfits), BDSM centered with a romantic story...
A shame there's not more material like that out there, at some point you get tired of Kink.com and literotica, and crave for something BDSM with quality.
he should have never stopped doing hentai
Just fuck already.
