Honne Nohotoke (布仏 本音, Nohotoke Honne) is a character who appears infrequently in the Infinite Stratos series. She is a 1st year student at the IS Academy, one of Ichika Orimura's classmates in Class One, a member of the Student Council with her older sister, Utsuho Nohotoke, and she enjoys eating snacks. She is affectionately called "Nohohon-san" by others.


Honne Nohotoke has sleepy yellow eyes and pink shoulder length hair, most of which hangs free, the exception being two small pigtails on either side of her head held in place by yellow fox-themed hair ties. Her appearance is usually marked by her long sleeves which obscure her hands. However, her long sleeves are not always present as the skin-tight suit used during IS exercises lacks sleeves. Despite her childish expression, Honne has a rather curvaceous and well-endowed figure.


She is presented as a cute, childish, happy and enthusiastic girl. Honne loves eating snacks.


  • Utsuho Nohotoke - Her older sister. They both work for the student council under Tatenashi Sarashiki.
  • Ichika Orimura - She, like other girls, is fascinated with Ichika. In Volume 1, Chapter 2, Honne gives him the nickname "Orimu". This first instance of this was omitted in the anime, so it is heard for the first time in episode 9.

  • Kanzashi Sarashiki - Honne is Kanzashi personal maid and childhood friend. Honne is generally loyal to Kanzashi and will do her best to aid her.
