Nana and Kaoru are now seniors in high school, still enjoying every minute of their secretive S&M sessions together to blow off steam. The fun continues for the pair when the two are invited to a special trip with adult toy shop owner Mitsuko and her 'master' – a man who just happens to be Shuutarou Sarashina, Kaoru's idol! What will Nana and Kaoru learn while under the tutelage of Sarashina-sensei and his lovely submissive?
First review, whoop whoop! Okay so if you've read the first series Nana to Kaoru this is an absolute must. So this manga is based on the relationship of Nana and Kaoru (duh) and the developments of their relationship as SM is introduced into Nana's life through Kaoru. They've been childhood friends their whole life and now they have connected with ropes and ball gags. It sounds like a lame plot but I absolutely enjoyed reading this. Which was so weird cause I'm pretty sure I'm not some SM freak but I just loved how cute Nana and Kaoru were and loved watching their relationship develop. One of my main problems with the first manga was that it ended before I was ready. The first series says its 156 chapters when its really 135 chapters and the rest are just repeats of the last 20+ chapters so that sucked. I was not ready man, I wanted to see more. So immediately I looked to see if there was a sequel and the heavens graced me with some kindness and gave me this, Nana to Kaoru Arashi.... or black label, whatever it means. There was so much more development and LOVE <3 shown to us in these chapters I was grinning like a school girl. Its dumb too cause its about people with fetishes but I honestly didn't care and loved every minute of it. Of this sequel anyway. I loved every minute of this sequel and am super happy it exists. I was given what felt like a much more solid ending and I can only hope that Nana and Kaoru end up together forever.
Well well well, I loved nana to kaoru but I only rated it 7/10 because of it's ending which lets us on our hunger from a romance point of view. Nana to kaoru black label is basically the end that we all wanted to see. Those 45 chapters are a pleasure to read. No drama at all, it doesnt really talk about their high school life. It focuses on their bond, their relationship. Nana and kaoru go on a 3 or 4 days trip on japan's countryside with Tachibana and her master (who is also a SM writer that Kaoru loves). It will permit our main characters to deepen their relationship and their "breather" by seeing some real pros that make it together for 10 years. Those two are also in love with each other. As you probably know, Nana and Kaoru are quite coward if not totally coward. They wont never express their feelings without an outside help. And who is more able to do that than Tachibana that we all know and her master (a very good character that you will quickly learn to appreciate) who's also Kaoru's favorite SM writer. You will learn to deepen your knowledge of Tachibana who is a great character that was left in the shadow during nana to kaoru "season 1" if I can say. Overall, as I said, the main focus of black label is the romance with of course SM. It is basically 95% of the manga and it's a MUST READ after nana to kaoru especially if you was still on your hunger after season 1 ending. I couldn't have guessed that this would have been so great to read. The art is still as great and original as nana to kaoru. No downgrade there I can swear you. I'm truly glad that the author decided to deepen the ending with this season. He put everything that he had in those 45 chapters, like a last wave of fireworks and NOW I can say that Nana to Kaoru is definitely one of my favorite manga and one of my favorite romance manga. It was a wonderful journey through the world of SM and I absolutely not regret being a part of it. The author totally conveyed his passion for SM and it's bond with the romance between two persons. Nana to Kaoru is, overall, one of those manga, created with an original idea that is not an overused idea that works. But despite this, the manga was a masterpiece that deserve being in the top of the best manga. Then, the best way to describe black label is simple. If nana to kaoru 'season 1" is the tasty cake that lacks of a cherry, black label is that perfectly ripe cherry on top on it.
