I haven't seen a manga that better captures the complete deterioration of a character than Nana.
Ren has been one of my favourite characters from the start (it helps that he's easy on the eyes) and his story is just too sad. He loves Oosaki Nana so much. I cried so hard when I got to the chapter above; he's just gone from being this confident, kind person to someone so broken and lonely. There's another image I have of him sitting slumped against the locked bathroom door as Reira tries to coax him out, and that made me cry too.
Unfortunately, Nana's on hiatus because Yazawa Ai is sick and can't write until sometime next year. I'm sure there are thousands of people worldwide praying for her recovery; I'm one of them. :)
