Nana Shimura is a major posthumous character in the 2014 Japanese superhero manga series My Hero Academia and its 2016 anime television series adaptation of the same name. She was also a minor posthumous character in the 2019 anime film My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising. Shimura was the seventh person to inherit the One For All quirk, a stockpiling ability passed on from user to user that increased in power with each new person. The reason for the quirk's existence was to defeat All For One, the dark emperor of the Japanese underworld whose combat might was unparalleled. The hope of the power was that one day One For All would grow strong enough that a user of the power could defeat All For One and free Japan from his influence. Nana eventually took on a disciple named Toshinori Yagi, who she intended to be the inheritor of One For All. After passing on the power to her student, Shimura sacrificed her life so that Yagi could escape the vile clutches of All For One. Toshinori Yagi, known as the world's greatest hero All Might years later, was able to use the sacrifices provided by his master and the other previous users of One For All to finally defeat All For One.

However, in an ironic twist of fate, Shimura's estranged son Kotaro Shimura had a child named Tenko who would go on to become the successor of All For One. Tenko, known as Tomura Shigaraki, eventually inherited the power of the dark emperor and built himself a criminal empire to rival his predecessor's. Nana Shimura's legacy was not one of complete failure however, as All Might's successor Izuku Midoriya carried on the mantle and opposed Shigaraki. Shimura is voiced by Mie Sonozaki in the Japanese version of the anime and by Stephanie Young in the English version. Young has also voiced Nico Robin in One Piece, Clare in Claymore, Olivier Mira Armstrong in Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Arachne Gorgon in Soul Eater, Towa in the Dragon Ball franchise, Sibyl System in Pyscho-Pass, Sherry Cromwell in A Certain Magical Index, Kazehana in Sekirei, and Cordyline in Tenchi Muyo! Generational Empowerment: The "One For All" quirk was a unique and exceedingly powerful transferable quirk that could be passed on from one user to the next. In order to pass on the quirk, the current wielder of the power would have to willingly consent to the transferal and then have their chosen successor ingest a part of their DNA (blood, hair, saliva etc.). After handling the quirk over to a person, the previous user could still utilize the power of One For All, although they would be running on fumes and could only use the power for so long before permanently losing it.
The quirk grew stronger with every person that inherited the power, stockpiling its previous wielder's personal quirks and their overall strength. Additionally, each possessor had a copy of their consciousness embedded into the quirk, allowing them to potentially commune with and influence the future wielders. Nana Shimura was the seventh wielder of the One For All quirk, having received it from her predecessor after consuming some of his hair. She would eventually pass on the power to her disciple Toshinori Yagi before her final battle against All For One. After her death, Nana would occasionally assist Toshinori's successor Izuku as a result of her lingering conscious contained within the quirk. Superhuman Physical Attributes: Due to the power of One For All, Nana undoubtedly possessed immense physical ability that was presumably almost unrivaled in her time. The quirk allowed Nana to stockpile raw energy within her body and use it to drastically increase her strength, durability, speed, and agility to name a few. She could focus the raw power into a single body part and could manipulate how much of her maximum energy capacity she utilized. She could also spread the energy across her entire body, allowing for an even increase in capability upon her entire physique. Due to the nature of the quirk, Nana was naturally less powerful than her pupil Toshinori. Additionally, she was unable to defeat her arch-nemesis All For One despite her tremendous strength. Peak Human Condition: A prerequisite for the One For All power was to have an exceptionally sturdy body, as the raw power of the quirk would be too much for an untrained body to contain, resulting in the implosion of the person who tried to absorb it. Whether Nana trained to receive the power or was already in perfect shape is unknown. Regardless, her body was visibly well-built with an impressive musculature that allowed her to correctly house the immense energy of the quirk. Her given name Nana contained the kanji for "vegetable" ("na") and "what" ("na"). Her surname Shimura contained the kanji for "purpose, will, determination, aspiration, ambition" ("shi") and "village" ("mura"). Furthermore, the word "nana" is the Japanese word for the number seven, a clear reference to Shimura's identity as the seventh holder of the One For All quirk. Additionally, "nana" is also a term of endearment for grandmothers in multiple languages, an implication towards Shimura being the grandmother of Tomura Shigaraki.
39;s Great-great-grandson) to aid Nobita.
This list describes characters from the anime and manga series Doraemon. Also listed are their original NTV voice actors (1973), followed by their TV Asahi voice actors (1979-2005; 2005-present). Part of the 22nd century characters are listed in The Doraemons. Each main character represents a primary school student archetype. Nobita appears in every episode of the anime, while Doraemon appears in most episodes, sometimes being substituted (for medical checkup or on leave) by his sister, Dorami. Note: In some translations of Doraemon, the names of these characters are different from the original names. 2.9 Nobisuke Nobi Jr. Albert in the Cinar dub of the series, is the title character and co-protagonist of the series. He is a cat-like robot from the future. He was yellow-skinned and had ears originally. However, his ears were accidentally eaten by a robot mouse. It left him heartbroken and caused his skin to turn blue. People often mistake him for a raccoon dog. He is sent back in time by Sewashi (Nobita's Great-great-grandson) to aid Nobita. Doraemon possesses a 4-dimensional pocket from which he can acquire various kinds of futuristic tools, gadgets, and playthings from a future department store.
He has also been shown to date with normal female cat.
He also has the tendency to panic during emergencies, characterized by him frantically trying to pull out a very much-needed tool from his pocket, only to produce a huge assortment of household items and unwanted gadgets. Still, Doraemon is very friendly and intelligent, not to mention long-suffering because of Nobita's antics. Since Sewashi sent Doraemon to the past, Doraemon has been living as the unofficial fourth member of Nobita's family and acts like a second son to Nobita's parents, since despite being a robot, he requires basic needs for a person, such as eating, and also sleeps in the closet of Nobita's bedroom. He also fears mice greatly (due to a robot mouse having eaten his ears), even go crazy about it and pull out devastating gadgets, and most of the times, Nobita saves Doraemon in such situations. Although he has no fingers in most media, he can hold things because of the suction cups in his hands. His favorite food is Dorayaki. He has also been shown to date with normal female cat. He is the elder brother of Dorami.
He is usually accompanied by Doraemon, who functions as his caretaker.
Nobita Nobi (野比, Nobi Nobita, English dub: Sidney in the Cinar dub, Specky in the Speedy dub, and Noby Nobi in the Bang Zoom! dub) is the co-protagonist of the series. He wears glasses, a red or yellow polo shirt with a white collar, and blue or black shorts and white socks and light blue shoes. Although he's not good at sports, he's good at shooting. He is usually accompanied by Doraemon, who functions as his caretaker. Although he's not good at sports, he's good at shooting and has been reflected in the movies many time. He's also good at string figure which sometime considered a girls' game. Son of Tamako and Nobisuke Nobi. Future father of Nobisuke (his son). Future husband or boyfriend of Shizuka and great-great-grandfather of Sewashi. Taurus), nicknamed Shizuka-chan (しずかちゃん) is a smart, kind and pretty girl. She is often represented by the color pink, and is seen wearing a pink shirt and skirt.
The word 'Shizuka (しずか)' means 'Quiet'. She is Nobita's best friend. She does not shun Nobita due to his failing grades, lazy disposition or constant failures. In fact, she often tries to encourage him to do better, though she usually fails to convince him. Shizuka likes to take a bath several times a day; however, a running gag in the series is that she is sometimes interrupted by a sudden appearance of Nobita (sometimes Doraemon, Gian, or Suneo) usually due to misuse of Doraemon's gadgets like the Anywhere Door (Doko Demo Doa in Japanese). Shizuka's skirt is also frequently seen getting flipped, either by Nobita misusing Doraemon's gadgets, or by the wind. Scenes in which her underwear is seen, or she is seen bathing, have been removed from the dubbed versions, especially in India, Europe, the United States and the United Kingdom. Her true passions are sweet potatoes, which she would rather keep to herself out of the knowledge of others, and the violin, in which her playing is just as horrendous as Gian's singing. She is also known for taking piano lessons unwillingly due to her mother's wishes (as she loves violin more), which is sometimes a reason for declining to hang out with friends (but she plays piano better than violin). Shizuka is an animal lover and keeps two pets at home: a dog, who is saved from succumbing to illness by Nobita and Doraemon in one story; and a canary which runs away on multiple occasions and causing Shizuka and Nobita to run around the city chasing her down.
She sometimes fansies some handsome idols on TV. Besides Nobita, Shizuka is also close to her classmate and popular student Dekisugi. Though they consider each other only as friends. Gemini), named Buster in the Cinar dub and Bob in the Speedy dub, usually known by the nickname "Gian" (「ジャイアン」, "Jaian", English: Big G) is a strong and quick-tempered local bully. He also frequently steals other children's stuff (especially Nobita's and Suneo's) under the pretext of "borrowing" them, unless the toy is damaged. He is known for his awful singing voice, though he considers himself a great singer. To prove this, Gian sometimes "invites" others to attend his concerts, under the threat of beatings. His singing is so horrible that, once, Nobita and Doraemon try to mute it in a silent world, his writings of the song lyrics in a board end up having the same effect as when they hear them.Though his voice is terrible in one of the episodes it was shown that a girl liked his singing. In some films, his singing is enhanced to become an effective weapon (as in 'Nobita's Great Adventure in the South Seas'). In some episodes when his voice is recorded and he hears it, he instantly denies it being his voice and threatens to beat up the person who his songs in a very bad way (which is an irony).
