Nonomiya Yuuta, a Skii Jumper aiming for Olympic Gold, bursts onto stage with his exceptional skills. However, his biggest problem is that he is not really a "HE"... This Yuuta is actually Nonomiya Yuuta's twin sister, Nonomiya Nono... And with Women's Skii Jump not being an Olympic catagory, hiding her true identity is the only way for her to achieve the dreams of her father and brother.
This isnt a tell me what the story is about section so ill get straight to the review. This was amazing. The story was soo good i couldnt let it go till i reached the final released chapter.There is not one chapter where i would stop reading or get bored.The story and reading is very easy to follow. The art is on the higher end of manga and is very detailed. It makes guys look hot,weird guys look like pedo's,and girls that actually have feminine charm. The kind of art you would expect from an visual novel in a manga.The characters were deep and funny.I enjoyed it completely. This is for seinen lovers.I never cared for the sport or for sport mangas but this manga changed all that.Read it.If you read a lot of manga and have run out this will not dissapoint! Plus the fact that this is written from the author of Elfen lied is also amazing and weird considering how different both of them are. Plus this manga has it all.Slice of life with nono wanting a boy and their school life. Romantic comedy and comedy with her disguised as a boy but with a super feminine heart and love for all things cute will lead to hilarious moments and the funny scenes with the afro group leader(wont ruin it).The names are easssy. i cant remember all that japanese jargon for names and i usually find myself lost. This is not one of those.Hope i convinced you. Watcha waitng for. Go read itread more
Aren't you tiered of those gender bender stories that are pointless? Well, either way some things are pointless. Can't help you if you find stuff boring.
I'm not going to include any summary in here except my personal opinions. I'm sure there's a lot of reviews and summaries that you can read out there that explains what is going on in the manga. Hahaha, either way it's against the "Review Tips and Guidelines" at the right of this "Write Your Review" box.
Nononono is a rather interesting manga that can keep you going even if the drawing is poor.
Let's talk about the story, The story to me, has a strong story line because it is centered on one thing, which is ski jumping. Although it has a little twist of small, very small amount of romance, it doesn't screw the story up at all. I think since this is my judgment of this manga, i don't know if it will appeal to you as it did to me.
"Ewww the drawing is so ugly, i'm not going to read this manga." Hey, it's your loss, although the manga had a poor job of drawing, it's not screwed up like some manga i know. The drawing of this manga is a not too good but not too horrible theme to it. As you progress further into the story your eyes will peel to see the manga in a better light. All you have to do is get that ugly thought out of your head and read the manga for what it really is.
The character Nonomiya Nono is a strong individual that grabs the attention of many main characters in other stories. I'm not saying she's the only one but, you get the point. She's strong willed and she risked her whole life to become what her brother couldn't achieve for their father. Even if her father wasn't relying on a girl like her to achieve his dreams, Nono chose a life that would not involve dresses or make-up like every other girl. Instead choosing her life as a boy to continue what she loves takes courage.
I enjoy this manga to a good extent. Some parts of the story are funny and some parts of the manga are such attention grabbers. Some may say that it was boring and pointless. The truth is they don't want to see the purpose of Nono's life as a boy. AND, they don't understand.
Overall, i gave this manga a 6. Just because all my my rating avarages to 6. It lost a lot of points when it came to the drawing part. Even though Nononono was a fair manga for me doesn't mean that it's going to be a fair manga to you. Who knows? you might like it better than you thought.

Normally I have trouble dropping a series, but this one is just way too excessive. At first it presented itself as "girl has to hide that she is a girl in order to ski!" although admittedly a kind of dumb concept as a girl can compete in any sport if she tries hard enough. Whatever, people love gender benders, it is not totally unreasonable that they gave themselves a good excuse.
Unfortunately, this quickly becomes about half assed tragedy (the tragedy in itself is not a terrible idea, but how everyone talks about it, reacts/reacted to it, how much everything about it is repeated ad naseum). Everything becomes sad faced drawings of characters that looks so terrible. It is not depressing, but it sure is miserable to interact with. My mistake was hoping that this would be a manga with exciting sports competitions, and instead it was Rumbling Hearts, "this time on skis!"
On the "gag" side and "slice of life" side, there are lots of bad blushing pictures and bad character art to accompany those types of story elements too. I do not like these types of elements anywhere, but I have no real particular problem with them when executed well. They are terribly executed in this manga.
The non-character art is really good, and that is about the only good thing I can say about this manga.read more
I am a fan of gender-bender story lines. I don't know why - I think because you can get very strong female characters. and I like sports storylines. Also, I have no idea why, but I seem to get sucked into them. OFten you get the two combined - I guess so we can see how totally awesome these girls are at the sport. When you think about it, that is sending a message that the rest of the girls are not good, but that is a rant for another occasion.
Nononono is.. well it is good. I put off reading it for ages.
While it is definitely not a comedy (there are some strong abuse themes that run through it) there are some very light hearted moments.
The character of Nono is surprisingly weak, and although it annoyed me at first, it is growing on me. Physically she is obviously amazing, but she is quite a shy girl, who needs to protect her identity. That, obviously, makes for some interesting situations.
Nononono isn't going to suit everyone. You need a predisposition to gender benders/sports stories, otherwise it won't hold your attention. Me? I eagerly await each new update!read more
