Setsuno Dining Hall
|[v · t · e]|
Nono (のの) is a disciple of Setsuno and her only staff member. Though she acts as Setsuno's assistant chef, she has been chosen to be her successor for the next generation. Since Setsuno's departure to Gourmet World, Nono is now the head chef of the Setsuno Dining Hall.
Nono is a young pale-skinned girl with mint green hair, blue eyes and two small blush marks under her cheeks. She is a bit taller than Setsuno, but about the same height as Komatsu. She wears the same clothes as Setsuno, including a pink apron with a red heart symbol on the chest like Setsuno's. She also wears a pair of red pants and a pink bandana over her head.
While venturing in Gourmet World, Nono wears a pair of dark-colored pants and a sweater with a heart symbol on it and she is not seen wearing her bandana.
She seems to be a silent and kind girl. She is also a true chef at heart and admires those with skill and love for cooking, and is often quick to recognize it. She has also taken a considerable liking towards Komatsu and his amazing skill, and it appears that this liking has developed into complete admiration and apparently affection after Komatsu's return from Gourmet World.
Powers and Abilities
Not much is known about her overall capabilities, but considering that she has been chosen by Setsuno as her successor at such a young age, she is likely a chef of considerable skill, having even been complimented by Ichiryu.
It was indicated that she has some sort of freezing ability as it was said that she was responsible for freezing the boiling hot Pot Pond. Her freezing power was also shown when she froze a mountain made of food and that the ingredients still maintained their freshness.
Golden Wheat Arc
Nono guides the Limousine Jellyfish to pick up her master after Komatsu ends cooking all the variant dishes of the Zenmen, where she talks with her wondering why did Setsuno request the young chef to do it if she could have made the aforementioned noodle in just three minutes. But without receiving an answer, Nono is then questioned by Setsuno about how was she doing with the preparation of the cup noodles of Zenmen to which she answered that she freeze dried all those excellent ingredients.
When the Four Beast poisoned the population of Food Park Plaza with Green Rain, Komatsu sought out chef Yuda to prepare an antidote, but soon enough they were joined by Setsuno and her assistant Nono who eagerly offered their help in preparing antidotes for the victims. They were soon joined by more famous chefs who were called in by Johannes to help them. When the group discovered that they might not be able to make enough medicine for the populace due to their small numbers and the fact that Purple Mochi is a specially cooked ingredient, they were faced with the tough decision of deciding which individuals will get to live. However Komatsu refused, and instead requested to be given time to create a new method of preparation so even normal chefs can make it. Setsuno and the others soon agree and call in their chef employees to help in case he succeeds, and Livebearer calls in his associate Tylan to help stall the poison in everyone's body to give Komatsu enough time to prepare, thus giving him 10 minutes to come up with a method.
As Komatsu begins preparations, he is soon joined by Nono who snuck off to help him, but she soon finds out, much to her amazement that he is doing incredibly well and can't help but admire his amazing skill and to further her amazement he is able to find a method in less than 5 minutes and uses up the other 5 to make the mochi more tasty, leaving her speechless and in awe as well as the other chefs who could not believe it when she told them. All of them could not help but think of Komatsu as a genius.
She is briefly seen on the anime aboard the Limousine Jellyfish with Setsuno, who was looking forward the expected fest. After all the deadly events that later occurred, Nono is seen at some building at Life, along with her master and Chin Chinchin, where she reports the former that an ingredient preparation was all in order. There she listens to Setsuno's speech regarding the chefs, that they have to brace themselves since the ones that will truly save the people will be the Gourmet Hunters.
A year and a half after the fall of the Meteor Spice, Setsuno and Jiro left for Gourmet World to find Joie, but before she left, Setsuno left Nono in charge of her dining hall. Komatsu later visited the dining hall to speak with Setsuno but upon arriving Nono informed him that she had already left. Before Komatsu could leave, Nono nervously asked Komatsu if he would like to stay and eat with her at the dining hall a simple Billion Bird meal which he happily complied to much to Nono's delight.
She was one of the many people who went to the World Kitchen to say their goodbyes to the Four Heavenly Kings and Komatsu before they set off to Gourmet World and she and her fellow chefs promised to cook all the ingredients that they send.
When the delivery of Gourmet World ingredients finally came into the Human World, Nono joined up with many of the Human World's skilled personnel who journeyed to Gourmet World in order to assist the Heavenly Kings. When everyone arrived in Area 8's Hex Food World, they became distressed when the Daruma Hermit told them that they had no Safety Monsters capable of traversing water to take them to Area 7 where the Heavenly Kings and Komatsu were as they only had a Crabbus that could only travel on land. Luckily Nono reminded everyone of her freezing abilities which would allow her to freeze water into a solid surface that would allow their safety monster to reach Area 7. With their faith of reaching the Kings restored, the party prepared to leave for Area 7.
