UTAU wiki

Nagone Mako (和音マコ (なごねまこ)), sometimes written as Nagone Maco, is a voicebank for the UTAU program.


Mako is shown to be a kunoichi for hire, and while competent with her job, is lazy and often slacks off with her work and spends her free time singing. She's been into gaming videos lately.

Etymology details[]

  • Name: Nagone (和音) - Chord Sound, Harmonious Sound; also can be read as Japanese Styled Sound, appropriate since Mako is often illustrated as a kunoichi. Mako (マコ) - No meaning.

Character details[]

  • Character item: Plum
  • Likes: Umeboshi pickles, Tanzura
  • Occupation: Kunoichi


Mako does not have a definite appearance, although Makonaka usually depicts her with long black hair that is usually held in a pony tail. She does not have an "official" outfit either. Fans have been known to change her outfit in almost every video- although the underlining "ninja" feel is a consistency with all of her appearances. One example consists of ninja style garb with a short netted shirt and white scarf, over which she wears a black robe with a giant red obi. Her arms are bandaged, mimicking VOCALOID arm gear.

Makoto's character is largely based off of Mako's down to the profile and appearance. The only difference between the two is their gender.


  • Nagone Makoto (和音マコト) - official male derivative by pitch manipulation.

Her voice ranges from low to high and is sometimes compared to Miku Hatsune. And she was known to be the preferred UTAU for beginners, even though her voicebank contains Japanese phonemes only. 3 additional sets of downloads for her voicebank are available, which focuses on quality and accuracy in voice renditions, for beginners and professional users alike.

  • For a while, her name was read by western fans as Waon Mako, Waon being a misreading of her family name Nagone. The author clarified it was read as Nagone after the misunderstanding continued.
  • Luna Amane is treated as her common singing partner and fellow member of Tenhou ( (てん) (ほう) ) unit and the Double Yakuman trio. Tenhou is taken from the "Ama" part of Luna's last name (天) and the "Nago" part of Mako's last name (和).[1]
  • Teto Kasane is a fellow member of the Kasa-Ama-Nago ( (かさ) (あま) (なご) ) unit also known as Double Yakuman (だぶるやくまん).
    • Double Yakuman and Tenhou are references to mahjong terms.[2][3]
