Nanno, also known as the Girl From Nowhere, is the titular main protagonist of the Thai television anthology series Girl from Nowhere. She is portrayed by Kitty Chicha Amatayakul. Nanno is a young teenage girl who transfers to different schools disguised as an 11th-grade student. Likewise, she has the ability to expose everyone's different stories of hypocrisy. While it is unknown where Nanno comes from or even what she is, she is not human and uses her special abilities to expose people. She is not human, as she has shown from time to time that she has supernatural powers, that go beyond the abilities of a human. She has a rival/apprentice named Yuri, who died drowning and 'accidentally' drank/inhaled her blood. This caused Yuri to have the same immortality as Nanno and can expose victims like how Nanno can. At the same time, people usually suffer after Nanno is done dealing with them. Nanno is a light-tanned girl of Thai descent. She has a short medium-length, bob hairstyle with bangs. Her hair is black.
Despite Nanno provoking her targets all the time, she does not give them punishments by herself.
She always wears the school uniform of the current school she attends. In many episodes, her school uniforms will vary. Her shoe attire consists of Mary Jane shoes with buckle straps or sneakers. She usually carries a Thai school bag to school. Nanno will twirl her hair with one finger menacingly whenever she is thinking, bored, or when she is done or satisfied with a victim or target that she exposes. When her target is exposed, vulnerable, or embarrassed she is usually amused and will laugh like a mad or a crazy person. This shows her insanity and her inability to be afraid. Nanno loves provoking her targets to make them act out on their selfish or hypocritical gains. Despite Nanno provoking her targets all the time, she does not give them punishments by herself. She always allows her target to decide whether they will continue the wrong deed or decision.
The punishment is usually self-inflicted or caused by the consequences of the target's decisions. But there are times when Nanno feels sad after she leaves one of her targets or doubts her own actions towards one, showing she has a soft side to her personality. She curiously is associated with Buddhism in several episodes. She symbolically stretches drowsingly after a well-learned lesson. Throughout the show, Nanno was shown to possess a huge number of powers that she uses in order to complete her missions. Her origin or the origin of her powers is completely unknown, and only several theories can explain much. Supernatural Physiology: It is unknown what Nanno's origin is. It is hypothesized that her physiology is demonic in nature, though her true origin stands unanswered. Immortality: Nanno's most enduring ability is her immortality. In several episodes, Nanno manages to survive wounds that would be considered deadly, and can just open her eyes and stand up after being killed. The cause of her immortality is unknown. The way on how her immortality works is also unknown, but it seems like her immortality have limitations as seen on the episodes, JennyX and The Judgment. In JennyX, Nanno's powers that makes her immortal weakens or fades when the actions/punishments she did, made her doubt herself, which made Yuri ask if she's a mortal now.
She is somewhat knowledgeable about her existence in a show.
While in The Judgment, she was convincingly killed by Waan, and was bid farewell by Yuri as she said to her dead body that her plan was to abuse the powers Nanno gave her, but not long after her immortality was apparently 'given back', when in the end of the episode, a girl with the same hairstyle as Nanno is seen watching over Yuri and the newly turned-immortal Junko (who was Waan's daughter and killer) walk in separate ways. One event that happened before Yuri telling Nanno's corpse about her plans is that Waan was killed by her daughter Junko, and it seems like Waan's death might be the cause for some unknown rules of Nanno's powers to become full circle, making Nanno immortal again. But the true state of Nanno is still unknown and is yet to be discovered in the future. Medium Awareness: In the episode, BFF Part 2, Nanno made her audience aware of her impending karmic rampage against students in school, while looking directly at the camera. She is somewhat knowledgeable about her existence in a show. Regenerative Healing Factor: Shown throughout the show, Nanno can regenerate wounds in a very fast rate.
And in the start of almost every episode, she appears to be perfectly fine, as if the wounds she had prior to that episode never happened. In JennyX, this ability is also one of the powers that started to fade when she was deemed a 'mortal'. As a wound on her neck didn't heal sooner than it should've been, and is still shown on the next episode, The Judgment. She can also never get sick, however, she can still be drugged or put in a vegetative state. She can't also be rendered drunk, even when already taking numerous shots of vodka or alcoholic beverages. Age Perseverance: Nanno can live for years yet her appearance and youth will never change, and she will still look like a high school student. This is evident on BFF Pt. 1 & 2, where she's been around in a class since the '90s yet she still looks the same in the present while her classmates looked older. This is technically evident on the entire series as well since Nanno spends a lot of time on different schools, from months and even years, yet she never ages. Pain Immunity: She has the ability to not feel any pain at all as she can even talk, laugh or smile as the people she's punishing kills her. Presence Concealment: Nanno can make her actions oblivious to people around her. This is shown when she talk with the people she's punishing where she can laugh loudly all she wants or do something noticing yet people mostly never noticed it, yet when the people she's talking to do something that can be considered loud or noticing, they will be noticed by the crowds around them.

There are also scenes where Nanno smiles or stares at people in a very weird and different way, yet they are oblivious to it. She can also make someone be familiar with her presence but everyone else will not notice her. She can even make herself unnoticeable and will only be noticed once she speaks. Dream Manipulation: Nanno can insert herself into dreams of others and can even make new dreams where she is in control. She mostly do this to scare the people she punishes or make them remember their mistakes when they are starting to forget about it. This is noticeably seen on Wonderwall Part 1 and Minnie and the Four Bodies. Wish Granting: In Hi-So, Nanno can grant people's wishes in exchange for money. She can grant their wishes, no matter how ambitious it is. From getting a motorcycle, getting good grades, or even a new girlfriend. Time Travel: Nanno traveled back in time, in the episode, Liberation. Master Tactician: Throughout the series, Nanno has managed to pull off grand schemes that leads for the person she's interested to be punished or get what they deserve. She tends to think of a plan that takes a lot of time to perform and is self-inflicting, meaning that she can't be really at fault when the person did the bad decision.
Bilingualism: She can speak native Thai and English without any restrain or difficulty.
She's also good at outsmarting people that puts them in a false sense of security before revealing that they are just outsmarted by Nanno. Her intelligence is also shown on how she talks, she talks in a very direct, curious way, where she can use what you said to her in her defense instead of yours. Expert Spy: Even without using her powers, she can be sneaky and get information without anyone noticing. Like in Yuri, where she sneaked in the faculty room and changed the answers of her classmate without anyone suspecting it. Or when she can escape in direct situations, oblivious to anyone. Skilled Thief: In the episode, Lost and Found, Nanno demonstrated her ability to rob, or pickpocket a person of their belongings with masterful ease. Bilingualism: She can speak native Thai and English without any restrain or difficulty. Moral Confusion: Though she is quite resistant to many known methods of harm, Nanno does have a single confirmed method for being able to kill or permanently end her- If she regrets or questions her actions. We see this in Season 2 when Yuri begins to point out that Nanno has started to pity her kills, even regretting her decisions to involve the victim in punishment alongside their perpetrator (Such as in episode 7, "JennyX") where Yuri realizes that Nanno is becoming mortal. Others like her: Though not a primary weakness, Nanno is only exposed to becoming mortal after she inoculates Yuri- who then begins to challenge Nanno and her form of justice. This isn't the first time she is called out as having a self-centered or unfair form of justice but somehow Yuri is able to manipulate each situation enough to bring the potential for lasting harm to Nanno higher and higher.

The Quintessential Quintuplets (Japanese:, Hepburn: Go-Tōbun no Hanayome, lit. Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Negi Haruba. It was serialized in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine from August 2017 to February 2020, with its chapters collected into fourteen tankōbon volumes. The series follows the daily life of a high school student Futaro Uesugi, who is hired as a private tutor for a group of identical quintuplets: Ichika, Nino, Miku, Yotsuba, and Itsuki Nakano. At the very beginning of the story, it is shown that the events are being told in a flashback, while an adult Futaro prepares to marry one of the Nakano Quintuplets whose identity is only revealed near the end of the series. The series is published in English by Kodansha USA under the Kodansha Comics imprint. The anime series is licensed in North America under a Crunchyroll-Funimation partnership. An anime television series adaptation produced by Tezuka Productions aired from January to March 2019 on TBS and other channels. The series is a commercial success, being the 5th best-selling manga in 2019, and the 3rd best-selling manga in the first half of 2020 in Japan. In 2019, the manga won the award for the shnen category at the 43rd annual Kodansha Manga Awards. High school student Futaro Uesugi is an academically gifted student that leads a difficult life-his mother has died, he has no friends, and on top of all that, his father has incurred a large amount of debt. An opportunity presents itself when the rich Nakano family transfers to his school.
Futaro is promptly hired as a highly paid tutor. However, much to Futaro's dismay, he discovers that his five charges-identical quintuplet sisters of varied personalities-have no interest in studying at all and have abysmal grades. Some of the quintuplets are against having Futaro, whom they view as a stranger, in their apartment, but Futaro's diligent tenacity gradually convinces those girls to accept him and to improve their grades. Throughout the series, Futaro develops special relationships with each of the quintuplets. Through a flashforward, it is revealed that he eventually marries one of them, but her true identity is only revealed near the end of the series. The idea of "a group of quintuplets falling in love with the same person" existed even before the serialization of Haruba's previous work, Karma of Purgatory (2014-2015), but was very simple at that time. The idea was denied by his editor-in-charge. A year after, after the end of Karma of Purgatory, he discussed with his editor-in-charge what to serialize next.
Among the few ideas being come up with, the "quintuplets" idea was included again, which was accepted by the editor this time. After failures in two to three serialization committees, finally, it was decided to have a one-shot manga published first. The one-shot received positive reviews and therefore went on to serialization. It was decided the protagonist should be quintuplets at the very beginning. When later the idea of quadruplets and sextuplets was raised, it was rejected very quickly, around 30 seconds. Haruba said it might be a reference to Super Sentai when he came up with this idea. Similar to Super Sentai, Ichika (yellow), Nino (black), Miku (blue), Yotsuba (green), and Itsuki (red) are all represented by a color. The design of the quintuplets started from his favorite existing female characters from "some slice-of-life works only with girls", around 15 to 20 of them. The idea of adding numbers in their names was after the design was almost confirmed.
