Japanese Name: なごみまくり
Literal Translation: Overly Calming Down1
Released: February 2002
Original Japanese: WWW & WWW & WWW & WWW & WWW

Nagomimakuri is a mysterious animal in the beautiful, clear river and dense forest. Resembling a salamander, but looks a little different… A plump form and precious movement that drains strength are the charm points of this character group. The appearance in nature and leisurely living unconsciously calms one down.

Nagomimakuri are typically on the waterside and forest. Although apparently there are several types in the group.

なごみまくりは、綺麗な河や深い森にいる不思議な生き物。 さんしょううおに似ているけど、ちょっと違うみたい・・・ ふっくらしたフォームと、のたっとした動きがチャームポイントの脱力系キャラクター。 自然の中でのーんびり暮らす姿にはついついなごみまくります。

Notice the spring-like Nagomimakuri

Yummy, huh? For now he eats… Drunk from flowers?
うまいかな? とりあえずくう… お花で酔うの?

Slowly swaying, where are they in the flowers?

A flower bloomed on his head while he was sleeping...


I've always wondered about this guy and what it is... now we know it's a salamander-like creature!

Translation Notes

1. "Nagomimakuri" comes from the verb "nagomu" (和む) which means "to be softened; to calm down." "Makuru" (まくる) is slang used to show excessiveness. So this salamander guy is overly calming!

2. "Kuu kuu" (くうくう) is an onomatopoeia for the breathing sound while sleeping.


  1. Omg, my favourite San-x character!!! ❤❤
