Nozomi Kaminashi (神無 のぞみ, Kaminashi Nozomi) is the main protagonist of Keijo!!!!!!!!. She was a student at Setouchi Keijo Training School. She previously resided in Room 309 before being promoted to the Elite Class.

Upon graduating from Setouchi, Nozomi officially becomes a B-Rank Keijo player, affiliated with the Kansai's Hyougo Branch. After her winless start in the professional world of Keijo, Nozomi tries to seek a mentor to guide her. After meeting Sumire Sakuragi, Nozomi asks Sumire to become her mentor. Although Sumire initially refused, Sumire is later willing to become soeur with her.

After her match with Sayaka Miyata, Nozomi is able to advance to the A-Rank. Sometime later, Nozomi and Sayaka start to stay in the Garden Worth, a lodging for Keijo players, where they reunite with Hanabi Kawai and Saya Kogatana.


Nozomi has navy blue eyes and long dark blue hair that she usually keeps in a ponytail, tied in a white ribbon. She has two visible ahoge on top of her head. She has a big butt due to her using Vacuum Butt Cannon a lot. When training, Nozomi prefers the dark blue version of the school swimsuit. Nozomi wears a white ribbon, due to this characteristic people call her the "Ribbon Girl".


Nozomi is a very energetic and lively girl with a deep love for Keijo, her friends and her family. While she seems somewhat greedy and dim, she mainly wants to become a rich Keijo player to get her family out of poverty and is actually quite clever, observant and creative, enabling her to figure out her opponent's technique's and counter them. She is also somewhat eccentric as she does silly things from time to time but in a Keijo match she is fiercely determined and does not back down no matter what. Nozomi is also sociable to people she first met and supportive of her friends. She tries to help them out however she can, despite annoying them from time to time.

Born in Kobe, Nozomi speaks in Kansai dialect, referring to herself as "uchi" (うち), instead of the formal standard "watashi" (わたし). Due to her poverty, Nozomi shows unusual tendencies when it comes to saving money. For example, Nozomi will negotiate with sellers in order to get the best price.

Nozomi often does shameless things: such as showing her pantsu to others, stripped herself naked without explaining anything in front of her friend. Nozomi is also not bothered to take off her bikini tops, albeit there are reasons behind this: first when she avoids Sayaka from using her Judo skills to throw her away, and second to find out Fuyuyu Tsurugi's main ability (using the metalic part of her swimsuit to trigger Fuyuyu's electricity).

Nozomi cares deeply about her comrades, and is willing to help them in any way. For example, helping Saya Kogatana with her breast damage: Nozomi attempts to invent new techniques. Another example is when Kotone Fujisaki almost gets defeated, Nozomi cheers her up, going as far to tell that they are going to aim higher. Nozomi is also known for being a motivator, as she motivates Kotone who had no interest to participate in Keijo's race. Nozomi also motivates Usagi Tsukishita, who decides to become a Keijo player just because she adores Mio Kusakai, giving her a new reason to participate in Keijo. Additionally, Nozomi also motivates Maya Sakashiro to have a rematch with her, which replied by Maya that she would love to do it.


Nozomi's mother telling her daughter.

At some point, her mother was hospitalized. Around at age 6, her mother eventually passed away, while Nozomi helplessly cried. Right before her death, Mitsuki told Nozomi, as the eldest daughter, to take care of her siblings. Nozomi and her siblings then lived in a very poor condition.[3][4] Due to this poverty, Nozomi kept working hard, to the point where her friends said that her body never stopped moving.[5] Nozomi attended Shinkou High School in Kobe. Upon entering Shinkou, Nozomi has became a pretty skilled gymnast.[6] Thus Nozomi was invited by colleges with the best gymnastic programs. However, Nozomi then learned about Keijo, a gambling, water sport, knowing that its players got paid so much if they win in the large scale tournaments. As such, Nozomi refused all offers of joining athletics college and decided to become a Keijo player in order to bring her family out of poverty.

As the match started, Nozomi realized that she was being targeted by four participants. Thus, Nozomi was cornered by the three of them. But soon, another participant, Hanabi Kawai, showed up and asked Nozomi to join into the fight. Hanabi quickly defeted the three of them, while leaving the last survivor to run away.

A short time later, Nozomi went to the toilet, but she immediately screamed upon seeing male students there. Nozomi rushed towards Sayaka, while Sayaka explained that male students were studying to become Keijo Engineers. Nozomi was shocked since she thought that Setouchi was an all-girls school. Masaru Okazaki approached Nozomi and mumbled that she didn't apologize for seeing him while peeing. However, Masaru decided to leave as Nozomi still insisted that it was not her fault.[20][21]

Upon attending the entrance ceremony, Nozomi and Sayaka figured out that they got the same room in the school's dormitory. But they were warned by Yuko Oshima that their room Room 309 was designated for those who barely passed the exam. The two quickly entered the room as were greeted by the two remaining residents, Non Toyoguchi and Kazane Aoba.

The next day, they changed their training spot and went to Kamogawa River. By observing Shirayuki, Nozomi ultimately learned that her butt had gotten bigger.[40] The next day, while the other Infighters were training at the river, Nozomi was brought to the fields. Shirayuki then asked Nozomi to putt out the turnip in order to master the "Butt Flash". While Nozomi initially complained regarding this matter, but later realized that Shirayuki was really spending her time to teach her.[41] The next day, Nozomi tried so hard but was still unable to pull out the turnip properly. Shortly after, Mio visited her and managed to pull it out with on her first try. Later that night, Kobayakawa explained that tommorow they would held trial matches and Nozomi was challenged by Usagi Tsukishita. The next day, Shirayuki left Nozomi to train by herself.

As such, Usagi was unable to bear the weight of Nozomi's big butt and fell down to the Land.[43]

Later that night, Nozomi and Rin Rokudo invited Usagi to join the dinner party. Usagi initially refused but changed her mind upon hearing that Mio was also present. While heading to the dining room, Usagi told her past to Nozomi, but Usagi got embarrassed when Nozomi implied that their match was fun. Thus she ran away. While Rin explained that Mio was the one who motivated her, but Nozomi was the one who taught her how to enjoy fighting in Keijo. Shortly after, along with her friends, they were discussed regarding the next event, the East-West War.[44]

But soon, Yokosugi suddenly assaulted Nozomi. However, Maya surprisingly stopped her. Yokosugi demanded Maya to explain, which replied by Maya that she wanted to fight Nozomi, blasting Yokosugi away.

Later that night at the feast, Nozomi asked Hikari and Midori about Maya, which replied by them that Maya fell asleep. While she was celebrating alongside Suruga's students, Nozomi noticed a small, enigmatic figure, called "Beach-kun", approached her.
