"Um... jeez... I'm Morikubo but... ah, yes, I'm Morikubo Nono but, um, Producer-san, sorry for being so sudden but, um, I thought, that I should already stop being an idol... um, jeez..."
THE iDOLM@STER POPLINKS Profile Quote
"I'm... Morikubo but... you're just in time, so I'll, uh... go back under the desk..."
Apprehensive, Nono is easily distressed and uneasy. Originally introduced to the idol world by an uncle during a fill-in photoshoot, she didn't originally plan on becoming an idol. Dubious of her abilities, she frequently considered quitting her job and giving up immediately, but the Producer convinced her that anything was possible. Through other idols and Producer's encouragement, Nono frequently finds the strength to continue on with her idol career. Though being uneasy, Nono finds solace in her hobbies of poetry writing and hopes to one day be a picture book illustrator/author.
Nono has two famous catchphrases: "Though I'd rather ________." The blank is filled in with something safe and opposite of what she's doing. For example: be at home, hide under the bed, avoid crowds, etc. The second catchphrase is "it's impossible..." or "no waaaay...". Additionally, Nono alternates between talking in the first person and calling herself "Morikubo".
Because Nono is so fearful she frequently gets anxious before lives and hides under tables or inside closets, especially the producers' desk. While Nono was initially too afraid to make close friends, she was able to become great friends with Mirei and Syoko and the three together are an idol unit called individuals.
For a while, it seemed in the tie-in Cinderella Girl comics, Nono was becoming more outgoing and confident, though she kept her generally displeased expression. A later comic featuring her in a squirrel costume reveals that she's putting a lot of effort into faking to become normal. After this comic and her [Bewildered Little Squirrel] SR, Nono became associated with squirrels due to their solitude and hiding abilities.
Nono currently has 18 sets of cards in the game: 5 Rare card sets and 13 S Rare card sets.
