Manako (まなこ) is an odorite who began dancing on Nico Nico Douga in 2012 as a member of DANCEROID.


Appearance & PersonalityEdit

Manako is known for her signature black bob haircut, which she has had for the majority of her time on NND. In her early videos, however, she had long hair, and early 3rd generation DANCEROID promos depicted Manako with long pigtails. She also often wears a sailor uniform in her videos.

Dance StyleEdit

Manako dances to a mix of gentler and more energetic songs, occasionally with her own original choreography to these songs.

Manako has a fairly gentle and precise dance style, which she picks appropriate songs to dance to, such as "Hide and Seek" Nv. She often also dances energetically, but still manages to maintain her precise style. Recently in her videos with Q'ulle, she has shown herself capable of dancing in a cool style as well.



Manako first started uploading videos to NND in 2012. The first video she appeared in was her DANCEROID audition. She became a member of the group for their 4th generation. In her early days on NND, she rarely uploaded solo videos, instead mostly opting to uploading dances featuring her fellow DANCEROID members.

In the later parts of 2013, she began uploading solo videos more frequently, which she often made original choreography for. Some of these became popular, such as "Yuukei Yesterday" Nv and "Snow Song Show".


Her breakout video was Youkai Taisou Daiichi, which made her extremely popular on both NND and other areas of the internet. She received over 10 million views spread over NND and YouTube for the video and appeared on various TV programmes performing the dance in Japan. However, the video has since been privated on both NND and YouTube.

Around the same time as the success of Youkai Taisou Daiichi, Manako's cover of Melochin's choreography for "Friday's Good Morning" Nv also became popular. It is now the most viewed dance of the song, with over 1 million views on NND. Her original choreography for "The World Is Falling In Love" Nv around this time also was well-received, with over 500,000 views.

After this, Manako became one of the most popular odorite's on NND, with the majority of her uploads gaining over 100,000 views.

Collaborative ProjectsEdit

The main group that Manako has been involved with on NND is DANCEROID, of which she was a member from 2012-2014 until their disbandment. The first official DANCEROID upload that she appeared in was "BOY MEETS GIRL" Nv, which was the first video featuring the 4th generation of DANCEROID. After appearing in all the DANCEROID videos from this point onwards, she provided the original choreography for the groups final video, "Kami no Mani Mani". For more information on Manako as a member of DANCEROID, please visit her article here on the DANCEROID wiki.

She has also collaborated with her fellow DANCEROID members many times outside of the group, such as in "Love is a Fickle Illusion!!" Nv with Maam.

In late 2015, she became a member of Q'ulle with other former DANCEROID members, which is an idol group. However, the five members continue to upload odottemita covers to NND, which are always extremely popular. Their first upload, announcing the group, was "Carry Me Off" Nv, with choreography by Melochin. Manako has also provided choreography for their odottemita covers, namely "Oni KYOKAN" Nv and "Pumpkins Nightmare" Nv.

Manako most commonly collaborates with Yakko, with Manako often providing original choreography for their videos. Their first collaboration was "Romantic Breaker" Nv, which was well-received as a result of its cute, somewhat childish style. The duo's most iconic video together is "Viva Happy" Nv, which had choreography provided by Melochin and became extremely popular on NND.

Manako and Yakko have also collaborated with some vocaloid producers, with DECO*27 having the duo dance to "Tankobu Baby" Nv as the NND upload of the song, and HoneyWorks simultaneously uploading "Tokyo Summer Session" Nv with the two.

Manako and Yakko are also known for collaborating with Ashibuto Penta and Miko, as they are all of a similar age and have shown to be good friends with each other. They often call themselves YMMP and have held a Christmas concert focused on the four of them.

She has taken part in all 4 of the NND choreographers group collaborations; "Highway" Nv, "39" Nv,"Kamikyoku" Nv,and most recently Calc., being one of only a few odorite to take part in all 4 of these dances.
