Nani Sore is a memorable phrase spoken by the character Nonon Jakuzure in the anime Kill la Kill. The phrase, which translates to "What does that mean?", has become an iconic line for Nonon, leading to various edits and exploitable images based on her smile.


Nonon Jakuzure is one of the primary antagonists of the Kill la Kill series, serving on the Honnōji Academy's Student Council as the leader of the school's non-athletic clubs.[1] In several episodes of the series, she is heard uttering the line. The first and most notable instance of the line is in Episode 6 of the series, where the line is said with a peculiar squeaky tone.


On November 3rd, 2013, YouTube user fckngjss uploaded a clip of the first Nani Sore, seen above. One month later, YouTube user IEnjoyBeingNaked uploaded a one-hour loop of the phrase. On March 27th, 2014, YouTube user AverageScrandyDandy uploaded a When I'm Bored remix featuring the phrase in the video and title; this video gained over 180,000 views. Several different instant sound effect sites for the phrase exist; a Tumblr version has been played over 16,000 times, and the most popular Myinstants version has been shared on Facebook over one thouand times.[2][3] The phrase is also commonly used on sites such as Tumblr to tag images featuring Nonon.

The phrase is sometimes associated with a screenshot taken of an extreme close-up shot of Nonon saying the phrase. Said screenshot is used as the thumbnail on several Nani Sore-related videos. A Tumblr post featuring a pun on the phrase and an edit of the screenshot gained over 5,000 notes.[4] On April 6, 2014, Tumblr artist Bernie's Sauce Pot uploaded an image of the "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" character Rarity drawn with the same face as the screenshot, which gained over 1,000 notes.[5]
