Sentai Filmworks has announced that it has acquired Nana, the 47-episode anime series produced by Madhouse and based on the manga by Ai Yazawa. The series has been upconverted from its original format to vivid high definition.
Two twenty-somethings seemingly share nothing in common apart from their first name, but a chance meeting on a train bound for Tokyo sets Nana Komatsu and Nana Osaki on a collision course with destiny. Nana Komatsu, a love-at-first-sight dreamer, aims to find enduring happiness in the big city. Nana Osaki, neo punk rock vocalist, pursues her burning ambitions of musical stardom and worldwide fame. As their fates increasingly intertwine, they each chase their dreams — until the harsh realities of life in big city Tokyo threaten to tear everything apart.
A production of studio Madhouse, Nana is directed by Morio Asaka with series composition by Tomoko Konparu and music by Tomoki Hasegawa. The series stars Romi Park as punk-rocker Nana Osaki and KAORI as the cheerful Nana Komatsu.
Sentai is planning an HD version for release on digital outlets with an HD home video release to follow.
