Japanese katakana syllabogram ノ is derived from the standard script (楷書) form of the Japanese kanji 乃 (possessive particle). If you look at the diagram above, you will notice that the shape of katakana ノ follows the left-hand side slanting stroke of the character 乃. Although the shape of katakana syllabogram ノ is different from the shape of hiragana syllabogram の, both syllabograms are based on the same Japanese kanji 乃.
