She held her final concert, "5th Anniversary Year's Final Live" on March 20, 2014, although she would continue to be active in the voice-acting industry.[1]

On December 1, 2016, Nakajima's management announced that she would return from her hiatus to perform the song "Watashi no Sekai", which is used as the ending theme to the 2017 anime television series Fuuka. Her second post-comeback single "Saturday Night Question" was released on November 6, 2017; the title track is used as the opening theme to the anime series Recovery of an MMO Junkie.

She released her fourth album Curiosity on February 26, 2018. She released the single "Bitter Sweet Harmony/Shiranai Kimochi" on August 1, 2018; the song "Bitter Sweet Harmony" was used as the opening theme to the anime series Miss Caretaker of Sunohara-sou. Nakajima reunited with Yoko Kanno and May'n, for the single "Good job!" in January 2018 during the Macross series' 35th anniversary collaboration event with Tokyo Sky Tree, "Macross 35th BLUE MOON SHOWCASE at Tokyo Skytree". "Good Job!" was also created to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the Macross Frontier's television broadcast.
