VIZ Media reports that the popular shojo animated series NANA is now available on the itunes Store in the US and Canada. The series will be exclusive to iTunes until August 31, 2009 and every purchase of a NANA Season 1 pass will include a free bonus episode download. (www.itunes.com/tv/nana)



The NANA anime is based on the manga by Ai Yazawa, which has sold over 43 million copies in Japan, and is published in North America by VIZ Media under its SHOJO BEAT imprint. Its tremendous success has inspired two live-action feature films which are available on DVD in North America from VIZ Pictures.

NANA follows the adventures of two girls, both named Nana. While they share the same name, they couldn't be more different. Nana "Hachi" Komatsu follows her boyfriend to Tokyo in the hopes of making a new start, while Nana Osaki, who arrives in the city at the same time, is a punk rock beauty who has the ambition of making it big in the world of rock and roll. Although these two young women come from different backgrounds, they quickly become best friends while chasing their happiness and dreams. ~VIZ Media
