Nana Manga Series Ending Possibility

In my venture into Asian TV, I got interested in the manga series/books that many of the Japanese Dramas were based. Nana was one of those series but due to illness, the author stopped writing the series and it was never finished.

Since there were enough flash forwards in the series, I made some conclusions on how things actually turned out. Others have written their versions in Fan Fiction. 

This is my version of how things turned out at the end of the series:

After Ren’s death, Nana O disappears, and Black Stones disbands. Nobuo goes back to his hometown to work at his parent’s hotel and Shinichi becomes an actor. Yasushi becomes a full-time lawyer and continues his relationship with Miu.

Nana I (Hachi) gives birth to a boy Ren named after Ren. With Ren’s death, Trapnest decides to disband. Takumi becomes a music producer/manager. He becomes Layla’s manager as she continues her singing career as a solo artist.  Hachi and Miu go into business together and a detective is hired to find Nana O. Naoki continues to play the drums but with a different group, marries and continues his friendship with Takumi.

Marriage of Hachi and Takumi has its ups and downs, but the couple stay together.  Takumi spends though much of his time in England. Two or three years after Ren’s death. Hachi has a girl and this time there is no question of paternity.  Takumi keeps an apartment in England for work and his son Ren comes to stay during vacations.

Hachi, Yasushi, Shinichi and Nobuo stay friends and continue meeting at the apartment that the Nanas shared. Hachi continues to pay the rent.

Detective tracks Nana O in England; preforming solo in a London club. Hachi then goes to London and reunites with Nana O. They return to Japan and the series ends with a reunion concert.

Since publishing this conclusion, it has been viewed many times and from places all over the world. I wish the author had finished the series or had given permission for someone to do it for her. The story is much beloved by people from all over the world. Let me know what you think about how the series ends.

  1. I think there’s potential here to create every possible alternative ending! I like to think that in the end, Nobuo and Hachi do have some sort of romantic relationship, I just hope so. Or something involving Nana and Hachi reuniting forevee, just like Nana wanted from the beginning.
    Who knows!


  2. This possible ending gave me peace, I would like to think that this happens, as for Hachi Id be glad of her staying married with takumi since nobuo can’t for what he wants. Hachi dreamed to have a luxurious life, be a beautiful bride and a housewife in the first place, all of that we’re given by takumi too but sacrifices are always there, but I think that’s also a consequence for Hachi deeds before. And Takumi is more reliable than nobuo tbh. My heart cries for Nana K, ren was the love of her life and definitely her soulmate I doubt I will ever move on from that.
