This paper toy is a chibi Nano Shinonome (uniform version), a robot created by Professor Shinonome, based on the manga series Nichijou (Regular Life), the paper craft was created by niseke. Nano Shinonome lives with Hakase and manages the household. She is constantly being upgraded by Hakase without knowing, or approving, of these upgrades. This leads to strange situations that Nano worries might reveal her android identity to others.
Nano has black hair and black eyes. Although 1 year old, she has the average build and height of any other 15-17 year old in Nichijou. Nano sports a key in her back at the insistence of Hakase. The key is mostly useless and spins randomly. When the key is wound manually, it launches her big toe into the air. She is usually seen a bright red pull over with blue trousers when going casual, or a lavender T-Shirt, a light blue dress and wooden sandals when doing household chores. When attending school, she wears the standard school uniform, though her particular uniform is tailor-made so as to allow her to put it on without removing the key on her back.
Nano acts like a reserved, shy, teenager with insecurities about being a robot around others. Nano acts like a caretaker to Hakase and Sakamoto, so her personality around them is very maternal around the Shinonome house. Nano acts kindly and properly to others in general, but her insecurities about being a robot usually has her fibbing about herself. She initially disliked the key in her back not only because it was inconvienient, but also because it is an obvious giveaway to the fact that she is a robot. However, in the final episode, when Hakase offers to remove her key, she realizes that her key is part of what makes her who she is, and she decides to keep it on.
Hakase built in many hidden abilities into Nano, but Nano herself usually learns for the first time what her special abilities are at the moment they occur. One of Nano's special abilities is to dispense pastries. Nano's limbs also come off at random, at her great surprise every single time that she comes apart. Nano is usually unappreciative of and embarrased by her mostly useless gifts. Here is a list of the functions that were seen so far :
- A rollcake dispenser in her left arm.
- A sweet bun dispenser in her forehead.
- Her toes comes off easily, and double as USB drives. Her big toe in particular can be launched like a rocket when the key on her back is turned manually.
- She has a digital watch built into her right arm.
- Has an in-built cuckoo clock. When the clock rings, the cuckoo clock springs out of her forehead.
- She has a gun installed in her hand, which fires grapes instead of bullets.
- Her right hand is rocket-propelled, but it usually flies off at random. It can fly for a very long time, and can travel very long distances: this was best shown when the fist was accidentally launched and flew around the town for a rather long time, only stopping after it hit Misato Tachibana on the head.
