But it remains tender, and someone must protect it all!
99th Class, Nana Daiba! I will protect them! Forever... Again and again!

Nana has emerald-green eyes and dark-blonde hair, which goes down to the nape of her neck. Her hair is generally styled in half-twintails that are said to look like bananas, which she always ties with chartreuse ribbons. Her bangs are long and frame her head and eyes.
Her Seisho uniform consists of a gray blazer with dark-gray trimming and a gray knife-pleated skirt, a white button-up shirt, a red ribbon tie, and brown loafers, which she wears with black crew socks.
Her casual outfit consists of a long yellow blazer with dark-brown trimming, a white T-shirt, and denim shorts. She also wears a teal tank top that fades into yellow, along with high-waist coral capri tracksuit bottoms around the dorm.
Nana's practice outfit consists of a black leotard with grey leggings. She wears a white crop top over it.
Her revue outfit comprises a white jacket with golden piping, that is light-grey in the middle-third portion, as well as in the collar; red cuff flaps with a golden trim, and a golden armband, epaulettes, and thick-braided aiguillettes. Her belt is golden with a golden buckle. Her skirt is a light-gray knife-pleated skirt with a white band near the bottom, a gray ribbon at the back, and a light-pink tulle dress tail. Like all the other girls, she wears black boots with golden trim detailing and a tassel, as well as a red pelisse jacket with golden piping over her left shoulder, held to a red shoulder belt by a golden aiguillette and a golden button. Her weapons are a pair of Japanese swords with a yellow gem for a pommel.

Karen is deeply appreciative of Nana's efforts to help everyone out, and is the one to give her the nickname "Banana," as she considers her to have the sweet, kind, and nourishing qualities of one. Karen's view that the ephemeral nature of theater is what makes each performance worth treasuring directly opposes her wish to grasp onto her beloved performance of "Starlight" during the 99th Seisho Festival. While after her loss Nana has trouble coming to terms with the idea, she is still cares for and is supportive of Karen as they move towards a 100th Seisho Festival without Hikari.
Junna holds a great amount of respect for Nana, having once told Nana that she considers her to be "a true stage girl".

- Nana's surname Daiba means "big, great" (大) (dai) and "place" (場) (ba).
- Nana's nickname "Banana" was coined in a joke Karen made after their first performance of "Starlight" as a class. Karen coins another phrase, "Bananice", by creating a portmanteau of "Banana" and "nice".
- Nana's name could be read to mean big banana: Dai (大) banana. Nana enjoys cooking with and eating bananas, and scriptwriter Tatsuto Higuchi said they had planned to make the character with the image color yellow related to bananas.
- Another possible connection is with the term "top banana," which means the lead of the show.
- Nana and Claudine Saijo are the only characters whose revue outfit does not feature their image color; however, Nana's weapon still has a gem that does.
- She is the tallest of all the Revue Starlight characters, at 170 cm.
- Nana's favorite gift is a frog notebook.
- Nana has awful sleeping posture. 
- Nana dislikes spicy food. 
- By taking count of the lines that represent loops in episode 7, "Nana", it has been inferred that Nana looped her first year at Seisho + the Revues upwards of 60 times.
- Nana's weapons are a katana named 輪 (meguri) and a wakizashi named 舞 (mai). Joining these two characters creates the word 輪舞 (rinbu) meaning "rondo".
- Samurai during the Feudal era of Japan in the 15th century were required by law to keep two swords. Samurai would use the wakizashi as a backup sword to use in close-quarter combat. It was also often used to behead opponents or to perform seppuku, a form of suicide samurai would commit if they lost their honor.
