Manga / Mayonaka ni Kiss

Go To

The main character, Natori Nono, is a teenage girl living with her little brother and their mother in a small apartment. Then, Nono learns her mother has been secretly dating a man, a fact she only learns the day after the new marriage. To Natori Nono's (now Ichijou Nono's) surprise, her new stepfather (Ichijou Hayato) is a billionaire. With encouragement from her new stepbrother, Nono learns how to fit in high society.


This series contains examples of:

  • Be Yourself: Nono tries to fit into high society by being the kind of lady the wife of the founder of Ichijou Group was but ends up fitting as herself.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: Juuri
  • Gold Digger: Saegusa Ajuu accuses the Natoris of being this.
  • Happily Married: Nono's mother and Ichijou Hayato.
  • King Incognito: One of the maids helping Nono to adjust to being a wealthy girl was actually her stepfather's mother in disguise.
  • Not Blood Siblings: Ichijou (née Natori) Nono and her stepbrother Ichijou Kazuomi. Saegusa Ajuu, interested in Kazuomi, sees Nono as a threat because of the trope.
  • Older Than They Look: Nono's mother is 36 years old but she looks younger than that. A better example is Ichijou Hayato's mother. At first, nobody would say she's old enough to have a sixteen-year old grandson.

  • Our Founder: A variation. Instead of a statue of Ichijou Group's founder, the Ichijous have a painting of the founder's wife. When their main hotel in Tokyo is facing difficult times, the painting is sent there from their mansion upon Nono's suggestion.
  • Rags to Riches: Widow Natori and her children when she married Mr. Ichijou.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Kazuomi likes his marshmallows.
