Nana to Kaoru  
Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
Kaoru is a 17-year-old virgin who has an SM fetish. He secretly dreams about an SM relationship with his childhood friend Nana. One day Kaoru's mom asks Nana to hide all his SM toys so he'll study for a change. However, Nana finds the leather one-piece that Kaoru bought and tries it on, but she accidentally locks it and doesn't have the key! The beginning of super strange relationship.

Due to the popularity of Nana to Kaoru, the series resumes publication in Young Animal and chapter 22 is the final chapter in Young Animal Arashi. Publication of the series will continue in Young Animal, but renumbered as chapter 1 while maintaining the same name and storyline.

its funny cute and you never know What they are going to do next (i also love how the girl didnt really get that the first outfit Was for Her) she is just so inicent yet so worldly due to how she was raise and he just has some great taste lol but he is still so cute

i love the fact the male main is not a "lovely" man it makes it much easyer to belive that he is a very down to earth kind of guy that just will never under stand females......if he was a "lovely" male i would not read this manga every chanse i get

It's a pretty interesting story to be honest. I've never read anything like it before. A romance, comedy, with some S&M in the mix that almost cross the line to being a hentai series. I also like the art quite a bit; however, the protagonist being a sex deviant is a bit of a negative. Nonetheless, it's still an interesting series.

funny, intuitive and well drawn. but nothing too spectacular so far. Whether the manga will evolve itself into something more, or will just continue to rely on sex appeal is something to consider. I'm definitely against it turning into something like a hentai as drunkguy suggested. Some person in Japan will draw a doujin for it anyways if thats your cup of tea. Im more interested in the story that will keep me reading.

I like how the writer decided to leave the hentai out of the manga. It gives it a small sliver of innocence if viewed as a whole. Yeah, S&M is not too innocent but it helps. Now if only I could find a girl willing to "take a breather" with me. ;)

I got to hand it to Amazume for keeping the tension at it's peak on all the chapters I've read so far. He must have done his homework because the female lead and the male lead are fairly believable (in a manga quality plot). It's also a joy to absorb the artwork.

Great story so far especially considering the fact that it hasn't had to go to the graphic sex route yet. This setup so far really would make for a great hentai. If it ever goes there, here's hoping it'll be light on censorship. bigrazz

Amazing, I just love Ryuta Amazume's work! I'm a big fan of Toshiue no Hito, and this manga has so far been a blast as well.
As mentioned; this is no hentai manga, however similar to Toshiue no Hito, there are a lot of ero material - mind you, it's not your typical "fan-service"; all the ero you will see in any of Amazume's work is part of skillful story and character development.

this is by no means a hentai manga...yet lol, but it is without a doubt considerably more ecchi than most of the other manga out there which provide fanservice. some will probably say that it's pretty borderline, but the elements within this manga which shine through for me are the plot - quirky, funny and somewhat unusual - and the characters, who imo clearly have some feelings for each other, but due to various reasons (school, grades, friends etc.) don't seem to be compatible. so i love the fact that they are brought together by kaoru's perverted desire's and nana's need to 'relax' - the contrasting scenes between how they act at home and at school are pretty entertaining too.
if you're bored and don't mind some ott fanservice (if it can be called that ;D) then i encourage you to check this out

Odd manga but interesting...

It's odd but it's interesting to see how far this manga would go. It's obvious that Nana will ask Kaoru to keep doing SM things to her as a way to release her stress. The most interesting thing is how the romance in the series will develop. Kaoru no doubt likes her but doens't consider himself on the same level as her in beauty and in brains. He also knows he doesn't much time with her since she's going to a University which he isn't able to do. Nana seems to see him as a close friend but that likely will change because of the whole SM thing going lol.

Also the art in this series is pretty good and the manga-ka does a good job in making the scenes very erotic and steamy. Nana's body is quite lustful in those scenes heh.

Anyways shame this series was drop by the scanlation group, hope someone else picks it up because the series was just getting started and getting more interesting. sad

Edit: Great to see it's been picked up by another group. Now if someone will also pick up doing Toshiue no Hito only two volumes left for that manga to finish scanlating.
