Nana is back on TV on Ka-Boom!

Nana, the anime adaptation of the manga of the same name written and drawn by Ai Yazawa, winner of the Shogakukan prize for manga in the shōjo category in 2002, is about to return to TV again!

Starting in fact from 2 July 2021 it will be possible to watch it on TV on Ka-Boom, the container of the SUPERSIX channel at 8.00 and 18.30!

Nana: the manga

Nana is a manga written and drawn by Ai Yazawa, published in Japan in Shūeisha's Cookie magazine since May 2000. Between May 15, 2000 and March 13, 2009 the individual chapters were collected in 21 tankōbon by Shūeisha. In the March 2013 issue of the magazine, Ai Yazawa published a short chapter titled Junko's Room, which enriches Junko's story.

The serialization of the manga has not been linear and has been interrupted many times due to of the serious health problems that the author Ai Yazawa suffers from. Because of this even today there is no real ending of the story.

In Italy the manga has been published by Planet Manga since July 2002. In 2007 the publishing house published an edition called Nana - Collection with the format of the original volumes which was then reprinted in 2009, in 2012 and in 2019. In 2020 instead Nana - Reloaded Edition was printed (buy the first volume on Amazon!)

"Nana" in Japanese means "seven". A lucky number. Nana Osaki and Nana Komatsu, however, will have to build their own luck and, to succeed, it will be necessary to escape the lure of the Japanese province… New edition with revised translations and metal effects on the cover for Nana, Ai Yazawa's masterpiece.

Nana: the anime

A television anime was taken from the manga, produced by Madhouse and aired in Japan on Nippon Television from 5 April 2006 to 27 March 2007. In Italy the rights were acquired by Dynit and the series was broadcast on MTV in the Anime Night schedule between January 2007 and January 2008 and on Rai 4 from October 24, 2010.

The anime was also broadcast on the web tv on demand Popcorn TV starting from 20 December 2010 and on Netflix from 2019.

We also remind you that in 2005 and 2006, two live action feature films were taken from the series.
