Nana, a 2006 anime which is one of the cornerstones of shojo, has been all but impossible to watch legally. None of the major streaming platforms had it and DVDs were hard to come by. That changed on January 26th, when Sentai announced it had acquired the rights to the series and would be releasing it in HD on both digital platforms and home video.
For some anime fans, Nana needs no introduction. But if you’re new to the series, here’s a quick rundown of what it’s all about:
Nana Komatsu and Nana Osaki are two very different young women. Though Nana Komatsu wants to be strong and independent, she’s easily swayed by her emotions and ends up chasing her love interest to Tokyo. Meanwhile, Nana Osaki is exactly who Nana Komatsu wishes she were: tough as nails and ready to do things on her own. In fact, she’s just left her lover and her former band to strike out on her own as a singer.
When the two meet on the train to Tokyo, they strike up an unlikely friendship. Through a surprising turn of events, they end up becoming roommates. As life gets more complex, their relationship deepens and they support each other through love, heartbreak, career struggles, and all the other ups and downs of life in Tokyo.
So far, there is no timeframe in when you’ll be able to watch Nana, but hopefully, it won’t be too long.
