The Adventures of “Ashita no Nadja” Continue in Sequel Novel

 

The adventures of Nadja, an orphan girl living in early 20th century England and the protagonist of the 2003 shojo romance TV anime Ashita no Nadja (“Tomorrow’s Nadja”), will continue in a sequel novel written by Tomoko Konparu, the writer responsible for the series composition of the original show.

 

 

According to a post on Konparu’s official Twitter account, the new novel is entitled Ashita no Nadja: 16-sai no Tabidachi (“Tomorrow’s Nadja: A 16-Year-Old’s Journey”), and it will be published by Kodansha Character Bunko in September of 2017. Although details about the story are currently sparse, it is known that the titular character will be older in the new book than in the original TV series (16 years old vs. 13 years old, respectively).

 

 

The original Ashita no Nadja TV anime is directed by Takuya Igarashi and features animation by Toei Animation. It ran for 50 episodes from 2003 – 2004 on the ABC (Asahi Broadcasting Corporation) network. The story of Ashita no Nadja follows Nadja, a girl living in an orphanage in England during the early 20th century. After receiving a mysterious journal on her 13th birthday, Nadja leaves the orphanage and joins a travelling troupe of circus performers as she searches for her true identity.
