Read full description of the books:
Okay, I'm probably not being as objective as I could be with this series, but I really do enjoy the hell out of it. This is probably the best volume yet, and I loved the Naoki bonus story. Yazawa skillfully injects drama into the series without resorting to overused shoujo manga tropes, and the characters remain utterly authentic - if you've ever spent any time with punk rockers or other alt-types, you'll recognize personalities in this series.
Admittedly, I'm a little embarrassed to be so hooked on this romance fashion punk rock comic book for girls, but I can't wait until the next volume comes out.

Read information about the authorAi Yazawa (矢沢 あい ,Yazawa Ai, born 1967-03-07 in Hyōgo Prefecture, Japan) is a Japanese manga author. Her pen name comes from Japanese singer Eikichi Yazawa, of whom she is a fan.
Yazawa started her manga publishing life in 1985; throughout 15 years of publishing, she wrote over 10 series in Ribon. While most of her manga continues to be published in Japan by Shueisha, publishers of Ribon and Cookie (in which Nana is serialized), series like Paradise Kiss now appear in other magazines such as Zipper, published by Shodensha.
Yazawa's most famous manga include Tenshi Nanka Ja Nai (I'm Not an Angel), Gokinjo Monogatari (Neighborhood Story), Paradise Kiss, and Nana. All five volumes of Paradise Kiss have been released in English by Tokyopop. Nana was formerly running in Shojo Beat and is now being released by Viz Media, bi-monthly. In Japan it continues to run in Cookie and is currently up to 80 chapters, plus three side story chapters about different characters' early lives. In 2003, she was awarded the Shogakukan Manga Award for Nana. Nana was made into an anime (produced by Madhouse Studios) and a successful movie with a sequel in Japan.
Yazawa's works are most popular among women and young girls. The storylines generally are centered on young women and their relationships, something with which her young fanbase identifies. The characters are always very stylish, and she is known especially for her hip sense of fashion. Yazawa herself attended a fashion school after high school but did not complete her studies there. Another key point is her strikingly unique, often rebellious characters, who tend to be juxtaposed against the more traditional ones.
She has also published three artbooks.
