Yazawa Fashion.

Mangaka (manga artist) Yazawa Ai is one fashionable lady, and it shows, especially in her famous manga NANA and Paradise Kiss. Most of her characters a punk-fashioned, with cool little chains and gorgeous hairstyles. She also pays very great attention to every detail, and it counts. I’ll show you several Paradise Kiss pictures of her fashionable characters.

Miwako (a definite lolicon and is part of the fashion line Paradise Kiss)

Yukari (an upcoming fashion model and main character of the series

Arashi and Miwako (both are of the Paradise Kiss fashion line)

George and Yukari (George is the head honcho of Paradise Kiss and Yukari’s a former-prep-student-gone-model)

As you can see, all of these characters are quite fashionable (as is suspected of a manga all about how a girl wants to free herself of the boring lie of a person she was, and begins modeling after finding the inspiration of some weird, but very nice [and sometimes mean] fashion designers of Paradise Kiss). Most of the characters are pretty unique (no, actually, none of them are too alike). And I just started reading this manga, I love it!

Anyway, back to the matter at hand. I’m going to show some examples of several fashionable NANA characters.

Nana O. (lead vocalist of the rock band BLAST) and Nana K. (housewife of Trapnest’s head)

Nana Komatsu (nicknamed Hachi or Hachikou — a pun on her behavior, she acts like a lost and clingy puppy, just like the real Hachikou — check my history post)

Nana Osaki (Just goes by the name Nana)

BLAST (Nobu, Nana, Yasu, Shin)

Nana Osaki and Ren Honjo (Ren is the guitarist of Trapnest and former bassist of BLAST)

Now that I’ve shown you the anime version, I think it’s time to show you the cosplay (or live action) version of some of her characters.

These next two pictures are of Nana Osaki (from NANA)

This is Nana Komatsu (from NANA)

Chou cosplaying as Yukari (from Paradise Kiss)

Arashi (from Paradise Kiss)

Wow, so cool! The mangaka behind the stories, though, was born in 1967, meaning she’s about 41. Despite getting “up there,” this is her. The only picture I could even find.

She’s pretty fashionable, if you ask me. I like her lipstick. Her hair style suits her, too.

Thanks for reading! I know I haven’t been posting as much lately and that might make you sad. But, look! I finally gave you another fashion issue! Aren’t you happy?

Rina-chan, out! Peace!!

Oh my gosh, I’m wearing pigtail braids. *_*
