Her series, Kagen no Tsuki was the first of her works to be made into a live-action film. Yazawa started her most popular works, Paradise Kiss and Nana, around the same time in 1999. ParaKiss was made into an anime, and a film. Nana was adapted into two films, an anime, three video games, and several books.
