Ashita no Nadja (明日のナージャ Ashita no Nāja?, lit. "Tomorrow's Nadja"), is a romance anime with 50 episodes of 24 minutes installments, produced by Toei Animation and aired between February 2, 2003 and January 25, 2004. And it was the first TV Asahi anime in the Sunday Morning 8:30 Timeslot to use TV Asahi's current logo.[citation needed]

The opening theme is "Nadja!!" by Minako Honda, and the ending theme is "Que Sera, Sera" by Ami Koshimizu.

The series is available on DVD (in Japanese) containing two to three episodes each. The series has been released in French-Canadian R1 DVD by Imavision in two boxsets, and will receive English-language compilation dubbed movies from William Winckler Productions and Toei with a planned DVD release.

In 2009, William Winckler Productions produced two all new English dubbed movie versions edited from the original series. Producer William Winckler, known for Tekkaman the Space Knight, wrote, produced and directed the English films, which are seen on broadband in Japan.

A manga version, written by Izumi Todo and drawn by Yui Ayumi, was serialized by Kodansha in the manga magazine Nakayoshi from March 2003 to February 2004, and collected in two bound volumes.

Story[edit]

Nadja is an orphan who lives at the Applefield Orphanage, in early 20th-century England. Nadja is called by Miss Appleton, the orphanage's owner, to receive a package delivered to her. The gifts sent for her thirteenth birthday are a dress and a diary. She is told in the accompanying letter that her mother is still alive. She later joins a traveling street performance act called the Dandelion Troupe in search of her mother after a fire breaks out in her orphanage. She travels the world, finding many friends along the way that teach her things about herself, ultimately having to learn the truth about her parentage and discovering her own destiny.
