After the Nana’s Flower arrangement gathering in Singapore, I realized that I am more than a ordinary Nana’s fan now. For this issue, I still insist that I am a fan between ordinary and hardcore.
As one of my friend told me that after seeing Part of my collection, he feel that he shan’t known himself as a Nana’s fan, although I doubt about that. Actually, my collection style is a bit strange and you can’t treat me as just a ordinary fan, and feeling itself is uncountable, what we can do is just to use something countable to figure it out. Hereby, I will give my opinion for your reference: How to determine which level of Nana’s fan you belongs to?
1。普通等级的奈控 – 大家可以参考上图。如果你拥有的奈姬物品只限于以上物品的话，那么你应该属于普通等级的奈控。这一类型的奈控只收集单曲，专辑，还有演唱会等DVD。不过，大部分的奈控应该都是属于这一个级别的，所以如果你是并不需要灰心，再接再厉吧，接下来的大家都经历过这一步的。（Ultimate Diamond虽然也算在内，不过拍照的时候找不到，所以没放进去，还望见谅）
1. Normal Nana’s fan – Please take a look of the photo above. If all the Nana’s related goods you have are within that picture, I guess you should belong to Normal Nana’s fan. This kind of fans only collect the Singles, Album, Nana clips, and concerts. Most of the fans should belongs to this catagory, so if you are, don’t be dissapointed, every hardcore fans go through this step, what you need to do is just to work harder. (Ultimate Diamond should belongs this photo as well, but when I was taking photo I couldn’t find it, therefore I didn’t include it. Sorry about that)
2。动漫倾向奈控 – 这类型的歌迷比较倾向动漫界，除了对身为歌手的奈姬以外，也同时对身为声优的奈姬同样的支持。除了个人名义的单曲外，还会有一些动漫的角色单曲或者动画专辑。（因为很多东西都放在新加坡没办法拍照，所以看起来比较少，非常抱歉）
2. Anime-based Nana’s fan – This kind of fans is more devoted to Anime related product, they not only support Nana as a singer, but a seiyuu as well. Other than her CDs, they also collect some anime related stuff such as Character song singles and anime album. (This is just part of my collection, most of the others are in Singapore, therefore I can’t take photo of them, sorry about this again)
3 – 书本类收集家 – 比起身为声优的奈姬，这类型的人更加喜欢奈姬可爱的一面，特别是杂志的照片以及访谈等。不过这个类别的奈控不但少，而且日文水准要求也高，其实也算是相当高等级的奈控。
3 – Book collector – This kind of Nana’s fan more interested of Nana herself than her seiyuu’s background. Most of them loves Nana very much and like to collect her photos and read through her interview to know her better. This kind of Nana fans need to understand japanese well, so they are quite close to the Hardcore Nana’s fan.
5。演唱会型奈控 – 奈姬演唱会上的实力之强大堪称一绝，只要去过她的演唱会就是不是歌迷也能够欣赏到她的实力。想当然就会有一群平时收藏品不多，但是专门冲日看演唱会的分子。其实这种类型日本本地或许比较多，毕竟冲日费用太高了…..
5. Concert-based Nana’s fan – I dare to say that one of Nana’s speciality should be her live singing performances, even if you are not her fans, once you have been to her concert, you will understand why so many people are crazy about her. Of course there are some fans who are not collector but concert lovers, they seldom buy CDs but they always go for her concert. I think most of the people in this catagory is staying in Japan, because the expenses of going to Japan is too expensive.
6. All round Nana’s fan (Hardcore Nana’s fan?) – Actually there are quite a numbers of this kind of Nana’s fan all around the world, but most of them hide themselves well, so that most of the usual fans won’t know about it. If you are wondering if you belongs to this catagory, you can take a look of the few photo above. If your collections are more than that, I guess you should belongs to this catagory. (Quite a pity that I haven’t reach this level yet)
This is all my opinion about the different type of Nana’s fan, and I hope that helps. The photo looks a bit stingy because some of my collections are in Singapore right now, I apologies for that once again.
Before I end this post, I will like to clarify that, I am not only a Nana’s fan, but also an anime lover. Please take a look of the photo below.
Thank you for reading this post, and hope to you see as soon as possible.
