Nanaka 6/17 came across as a bit of a mixed bag for me, but not in a bad way. It is a decent coming-of-age series exploring the developments concerning Nenji and Nanaka as Nanaka's amnesia serves to make their characters realize their inner flaws: Nenji with his delinquency and Nanaka with her selfishness. The series does flesh out enough with the two for you to connect with the two characters in regards to their personal thoughts of what they believe involve having to be a proper adult and having their flaws. What does have me keep from wanting to give the series a Buy is that I did find the series to be quite hit-or-miss with its comedic delivery. While the magical girl anime 6-year old Nanaka is hooked on serves to contribute to the developments concerning her older self, it's a wee bit too overexposed for the show's comedic moments. Same goes for the moments where Jinpachi is getting regularly walloped by her bokken-wielding sister, Satsuki. The comedy does work in a few moments of innocent innuendo involving the naivete of Nanaka's 6-year old personality and a ridiculously funny episode where Nenji is sick. It's not perfect, but Nanaka 6/17 is a decent light-hearted and somewhat bittersweet comedy-drama looking into Nenji and Nanaka understanding what they believe it means to be growing up.

Well - I am upgrading this to a BUY because I just bought the ADV boxed set for $26. (Shameless plug for http://www.deepdiscount.com) This series is something that I would like to have in my lending library.|
This is a very cute teen-girl romance story in which a little six-year-old girl takes her best-friends’s words “to grow up quickly” too seriously and becomes a somber, reserved and studious high school student. (Her classmates consider her to be snooty, unfriendly and aloof.) While her feelings for Nenji have not changed, they somehow lost their special childhood friendship over the years. The stupid and angry words that Nenji spoke where just too much for Nanaka, and when she awoke up in the hospital, a six-year-old Nanaka wondered why her six-year-old playmate, Nenji, had magically transformed into an older seventeen-year-old high school student. But of course! Nenji's transformation could only have happened with magic from the wand of the Magical Girl Domiko!!
While life is a just a fun game for a six-year-old, Nenji finds himself having to protect his childhood friend, while hiding her condition from the other students at their high school. One of their classmates, Ameniya is excited at being in the same class as Nenji, but she is very troubled at just much attention 'her' Nenji is giving to this strange girl and just how clingy the girl is on him.
This is a fun series if you are a teen-girl or if you are into high school romance stories with a lot of comedy and a serious magic girl twist. If not, then one should consider this series to be a <watch>.
I have posted some snaps of the first episode, if you are interested in seeing a bit of the anime style of this series...
