Ooki na tabi ni deyou taiyou to kaze no kanata e

Miho Nosaka is a character in the Yu-Gi-Oh! manga, first series anime and Yu-Gi-Oh! the Movie. In the English version of the Yu-Gi-Oh! Dungeon Dice Monsters video game, she is called Melody.

Miho appeared once in the manga in a story where Honda bought her a love jigsaw puzzle. In Toei's anime, she was made into a main character along with Yugi, Anzu, Honda, and Jonouchi. Her role and personality in the anime are significantly different and Honda is actually in love with Miho throughout the whole of this continuity. The jigsaw puzzle story is changed in the anime to revolve around Mayumi buying the puzzle for Jonouchi.

In the manga, Miho is a meek, kind, shy, and quiet girl.

In the anime, Miho is cheerful and flirty, though she can also be a stubborn and resilient girl who none the less cares deeply for her friends safety. She sometimes refers to herself as in third person. Miho shows signs of being a typical fangirl, squealing at any given moment when an attractive male (mainly Ryo Bakura) walks past. Much like Honda, she is a romanticist at heart. However, Miho can also be naive and at times a little dim witted, oblivious to the feelings of those around her, much to Honda's dismay.

In the anime, if someone hurts her friends, her personality will become serious and she will come to their defense, as evidenced when she confronted Warashibe for giving Anzu, Honda, and Jonouchi polluted water and making them sick.

Manga biography
Miho was in class 1-B at Domino High School and a student librarian. She was nicknamed "ribbon" or "ribbon-chan" by her friends for the yellow ribbon she wears in her hair.

Hiroto Honda had a crush on her and bought a love jigsaw puzzle from Sugoroku Mutou, the grandfather of Yugi Mutou, as a gift for Miho. He got Yugi to write a love letter to Miho on the puzzle, that would be revealed on completion, for him. Yugi, Jonouchi and Honda put the puzzle on Miho's desk before class. Later, a beautiful teacher named Ms. Chono decided to do a desk check. When she found the puzzle, she asked who it was from. Yugi, Jonouchi, and Honda all confessed, so Chono decided to solve it to find out which one it was from, after announcing she will expel the person who made the puzzle. All the attention drawn to herself caused Miho to be greatly embarrassed which caused Honda great grief.

Dark Yugi came out and turned the jigsaw in a Shadow Game, causing Chono to feel the pain she was inflicting on others as she solved the jigsaw. When she solved the puzzle, her makeup peeled away, revealing an ugly face. Embarrassed, Chono ran out of the classroom.

Miho turned down Honda after he directly asked her out. Afterwards, Yugi and Jonouchi bought him a hamburger to cheer him up, and Honda became friends with Yugi.

Anime biography
Miho is Anzu's best friend and a close friend of Yugi Muto, Katsuya Jonouchi, Hiroto Honda, who is madly in love with her, and Ryo Bakura. According to Anzu, Miho's favorite food is natto.

Miho entered the classroom while Jonouchi was tormenting Yugi. She said that the cafeteria line was long and she had had nothing for lunch, prompting Honda to volunteer to buy her lunch.

After school one day, Jonouchi and Yugi agreed to go to Burger World on the way home. Honda disagreed as it would be against school rules. Miho enthusiastically said that she'd like to go, causing Honda to change his mind. Anzu tried to discourage them from going, by saying she'd heard bad things about the place and reminded them of the escaped convict on the loose. Jonouchi noted how Anzu had been acting weird lately and not accompanying them on their way home from school over the last few days. He wondered if Anzu could be dating older men for pay. Miho, not wanting Anzu to live such a life, followed her home to tried and "rescue her". However she found Anzu was actually working in Burger World, but keeping it a secret as part-time jobs were against school rules. Miho too got a job at Burger World, wanting the extra money to buy things. She accompanied Anzu on her way home after school the next day. Honda suspected Miho was also dating for pay and followed, resulting in him getting a job too, wanting the extra money to buy stuff for Miho. The three were followed home by Yugi and Jonouchi the next day. Two escaped convicts entered Burger World that day and one of them wound up taking Anzu hostage. Miho, Honda and Anzu quit after this incident. Honda and Miho however got a new job at a noodle shop.

Miho was invited to Seto Kaiba's mansion along with the rest of Yugi's friends. She was immediately fond of Kaiba because of his wealth, making Honda jealous.

Honda was convinced by Miho to get up early to wait in line to buy a D-Shock watch for her. However the watch got stolen by Shotaro Akaboshi, while Honda wasn't paying attention. At the arcade when Miho arrived to collect the watch, Honda discovered it was missing and stripped down to his underwear while searching his clothes for it. Miho slapped him and ran off crying. Dark Yugi won the watch back in a Shadow Game and had it returned to Honda, who passed it on to Miho. Two days later, Honda offered to wait in line to buy Miho perfume.

Miho got a Digital Pet and hoped to win the prize holiday in an upcoming tournament. However she didn't want to spend time training the pet for the tournament herself, so she made sure to say this in front of Honda, who volunteered to take care of the pet. Honda took days off school and returned with the pet, now named Super Strawberry, which he used to defeat Kujirada's pet Devil Master, who was after eating Anzu and Jonouchi's pets. Haiyama, who had been manipulating Kujirada, kidnapped Miho and left a note. Honda got whipped by Haiyama, as he attempted to rescue Miho. While he was unconscious, Dark Yugi defeated Haiyama in a Digital Pet duel. As Miho lay unconscious on Honda, she spoke about going on the holiday, but with her mother rather than Honda.

Mayumi had a crush on Jonouchi. Looking for ideas in what gift to get him, she asked Miho and Anzu what Jonouchi was interested in. Miho said porn videos, but after realizing that Mayumi was looking for a gift, they got Yugi to help and ended-up getting a jigsaw love letter.

The college student, Warashibe, desperately tried to win Miho's affection, by sending her Capsule Monster Chess pieces as presents. Warashibe pretended to be a hero in front of Miho by saving her from a guy, who was really Yugi in disguise. However Miho recognized Yugi and Warashibe's appearance didn't meet her expectations. Warashibe tried to invite Miho to his secret base, but she refused and slapped him after getting too creeped out. Embarrassed by what happened, Warashibe poisoned Miho's friends, prompting her to confront him. Yugi led her to Warashibes's base, where she was forced into a game of Capsule Monster Chess. Upon realizing that Warashibe had rigged the dispenser to give Miho the weaker monsters, Miho got up to leave. Warashibe refused to let them leave, as he wanted to put Miho in a giant CapMon capsule. He quickly closed his gate, which broke, causing a part of it to hit Miho and Yugi, knocking them out. Yugi changed to Dark Yugi, who finished the Capsule Monster Chess game, defeating Warashibe and rescuing Miho.

When Yugi and Anzu went to Domino Park together, Miho, Jonouchi and Honda investigated to see if it's a date. Miho lashed at Honda after he suggested that they go to the pool, so he could see her in a swimsuit. Regardless she still spent time with Honda in the pool. She managed to get out of the park during the evacuation when there was a bomb scare, but returned after the bomber was captured.

Miho congratulated Yugi after he received a love letter from Risa Kageyama and asked Anzu if she felt jealous. She continued to spy on Yugi's love life, by hiding in the bushes with the rest of his friends to watch Yugi meeting Risa.

Honda tried talking Miho into taking part in a beauty pageant. After Miho fell for Ryo Bakura, she agreed to do it. Fellow contestant, Kaoruko Himekoji and her supporter, the Student Council Chairman, tried to sabotage Miho's chances of winning. Miho performed majorette dancing in the first round. The chairman had her swimsuit torn-up for the next round, but Miho improvised and wore a mermaid costume from the school drama supplies. Before the final round, Himekoji mugged Miho and tore her dress. Dark Yugi then defeated Himekoji in a Shadow Game, causing her to withdraw from the competition as well.

Miho also helps her friends during the Death T and the Monster World arcs.

In Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie she hangs out with her friends at school and has a laugh with her fiends. Miho, Honda, Yugi and Jounochi head to a card shop to watch Yugi and Jounochi play a game of Duel Monsters. Much to the gang's shock they discover that Anzu now worked there. Miho watched Yugi play the game as he explained it to her. Honda challenged her but she wanted to watch more. A boy named Shougo was being picked on because he couldn't play the game very well. Anzu explained that the child had been there before but is too timid to play.

Her final appearance was her having a good time with her friends and Shougo.



Yu-Gi-Oh! Episode 17
A Beautiful Teacher with Concealed Face

AIRED: 6/6/98
Yugi is walking home from school when Jounouchi and Honda join him. Yugi doesn't like Honda walking home with them but he doesn't say it out loud. Then Jounouchi says that they have something to talk about with Yugi, Hondagoes crazy and tells Jounouchi not to tell Yugi. Yugi wonders if it's about Honda while Honda is stating the fact that Yugi's got a grudge against him and will tell the whole school. Jounouchi says that Yugi isn't that kind of person. So Jounouchi tells Yugi that Honda is in love with the student librarian, Miho Nosaka a.k.a. Ribbon. He then explains that they need a way to get Ribbon to notice Honda and was wondering if they could get something from Yugi's game shop. Yugi agrees and they buy a blank Jigsaw Puzzle from Yugi's grandpa. But Honda doesn't know what to write because he's never written a love letter before, so he asks Yugi to write it. Later that night Yugi is stuck writing Honda's Love Jigsaw Puzzle and he ends up writing; My beloved Ribbon You look perfect in your yellow ribbon I love you more than anything in the universe. From Hiroto Honda. In the morning the trio get together before school to put it in Ribbon's (Miho) desk. The scene then changes to Ms. Chono who's walking to her classroom right when the bell rings. All of the male teachers are talking about how they want to date her, and how she expelled 15 kids in just 6 months. Also that the students call her "The Wicked Witch of Expel". The Vice Principal asks Ms. Chono how her date went, she says that he wasn't up to her standards and that she needed to get to class. Ms. Chono is now in the bathroom (well i'm assuming the bathroom since their's a sink and a mirror). Then she punches the mirror because the Vice Principal reminded her that her other date had dumped her. She gets angry but calms down because she needs to redo her make up. At class Ms. Chono announces that it's 'Inspection Time', or time to empty your contents on your desk. Yugi and Jouncouhi freak out, but Tristan just stares with disbelief. Meanwhile, Ribbon's found the gift in her desk and she wonders what it is. Ms. Chono then is happy because the students look 'terrified' and 'guilty'. Then she walks down the aisle to Ribbon's desk and picks up the present from Honda. Then Ms. Chono takes it to her desk, opens it, and starts putting it together. Then she asks who gave this to Miho (Ribbon, i like switching off names...) and Honda stands up to find out that Jounouchi and Yugi are standing too. Then Ms. Chono asks why all three of them are standing and then realizes that she can just finish the puzzle to figure out who sent it. Then Yugi lets Yami take over (no one knows the difference yet though) and he turns the Jigsaw Puzzle into a Shadow Game, so as much as she hurts others, she will hurt herself. Ms. Chono finsihes the puzzle and is announcing the name when her face clicks off in jigsaw puzzle pieces. The make up is removed and all that is left is Ms. Chono's ugly face, which the other kids in the class point out happily. She then runs out of the room and threatens to get them if any of them tell anoyone else her secret. Yugi then comes back with no memory of what just happened. Later, Tristan screws up his courage and asks Ribbon out directly. But she refused him. The three are now friends! ;)moreless
