NanaOn-Sha (株式会社七音社, Kabushiki-gaisha NanaOn-Sha) is a Japanese video game company which created what is widely credited as the first modern rhythm game, PaRappa the Rapper. It was founded by Masaya Matsuura in 1993; the game's success resulted in the spinoff Um Jammer Lammy, which is based on guitar samples, and eventually a proper sequel, PaRappa the Rapper 2. NanaOn-Sha also produced another novel music game, Vib-Ribbon, but released the game only in Japan and the PAL region; the game was later released in North America on the PSN store as a PS1 classic in 2014.

"Nana On Sha" roughly translates into "seventh sound company" from Japanese.
