Sentai Filmworks Acquires Nana Anime

Sentai Filmworks has announced the acquisition of the fan-favorite anime Nana. The 47-episode series is adapted from the bestselling shojo manga, which has been published in America by VIZ Media.

Sentai Filmworks 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.”

As of now, Sentai is aiming to release an HD version on digital, then release it on home video at a later date. It did not give a time frame for these plans.
