Back in January Sentai Filmworks announced its acquisition of the popular shojo anime Nana. Now HIDIVE will stream the anime in both dubbed and subbed versions, starting April 22. It’s set up so the first two episodes will begin at noon Eastern Standard Time, and two more episodes will be added each week.
Besides in America, HIDIVE will also be offering Nana in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Holland, Scandinavia, Central and South America, Portugal, and Spain.
Sentai gave this description of the anime:
“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.”
