NANA the Anime
Airing April 2006!!
Written by Lisa
The current hot gossip in the world of animation is the upcoming anime for NANA. (Hell Yea!) Announced on November 26th, both Cookie magazine and S-NANA confirmed that a NANA anime is in the works. The first episode will be airing in the upcoming Spring, April 2006 on NTV in the night slot. Presently, it is unknown to the public how long the anime will run. =) More information on the upcoming NANA anime can be found in the current January 2006 issue of Cookie magazine.
NANA fans can also look forward to a new volume of manga to stuff their X-mas stockings with. NANA Volume 14 is set to be released in Japan on December 15th. The first english volume for NANA, licensed by VIZ, will also be in stores everywhere on December 6th. So if you have trouble figuring out what to get your friends, NANA makes a great X-mas gift!
Fans of Mika Nakashima and Yuna Ito will have another performance to look forward to. The two are scheduled to make an appearance at NTV's Best Artist on November 30th, beginning at 7PM in Japan time. Mika Nakashima has her TV schedule booked full for the beginning of December. Reported by BoAJjang, Mika is to perform at the "Year of Korean/Japanese Friendship" concert on December 6th. It is the live event of the year in Asia, with many top artists from Korea and Japan coming together for a MBC and NHK joint concert. She will be there in Korea, performing alongside with super star artists such as BoA, Rain, and many more.
[ RUMOR MILL ] Regarding our last post about a NANA drama, our reporter tipster has contacted TBS for an answer. Now, this is what TBS pretty much responded with: "We are not confirming it. But we are NOT denying it." So make what you will of this answer. Our tipster said when companies respond in this way, it means that there WILL be a production. However, details are still in the negotiating process. Newspapers in Asia are spouting off predictions on who the actors/actresses will be for the drama. I, for one, will take it all with a grain of salt until fully confirmed.
