Personality[edit | edit source]
Nagumo has a considerably short temper, to a point where he's willing to fight Kiryu for seemingly trivial reasons, before considering him a brotherly figure. He has a high sense of loyalty to people he respects.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Nagumo wears a floral blue shirt, along with beige plaid pants, a maroon belly warmer and a pair of white shoes. He has short hair with an undercut, and a noticeable freckle on his left cheek. During his trip to Kamurocho with Kiryu, he wears a brighter blue floral button-up shirt with a black striped suit jacket over it along with striped suit pants, black shoes, and a gold chain.
Background[edit | edit source]
After killing their fathers to protect the Onomichi secret, Toru Hirose adopted him and Matsunaga, taking care of them. At some point, he met Yuta and Naoto and they formed a small clan known as "Hirose Family" with Nagumo as the second-in-command. The clan worked in a protection racket in extortion for protection money from various places under the supervisions of the Masuzoe family. Nagumo met Kiyomi with Ino in high school and eventually develope a crush on her. He became a customer in her bar and would frequently visit her.
Yakuza 6[edit | edit source]
When Kazuma Kiryu arrives at Hiroshima, Kiyomi invites him into the bar. Nagumo is not pleased that Kiryu and the baby get all the attention while being scolded by Kiyomi for smoking near Haruto. Jealous of Kiryu, Nagumo challenges him to a fight outside the bar, and is defeated by Kiryu. Nagumo then warns Kiryu that he's the second-in-command of the Hirose Family and that he'll be back for revenge.
The day after that, he reappears with his friends, Yuta and Matsunaga, to pick a fight with Kiryu. They all end up bickering amongst themselves, and as such Kiryu ignores them. Later, at the baseball field, Nagumo and his friends revealed to be in the opposing baseball team. Nagumo once again feels jealous of seeing him with Kiyomi and challenges him to a match.
During the match, Nagumo purposely throws beanballs, which injures Kiryu's teammates. Kiryu then goes up to bat. He dodges Nagumo's pitch and narrowly throws a bat at him. Nagumo then fights Kiryu with the help of Yuta and Matsunaga, but all three of them are defeated.
That night, Nagumo reappears in Kiyomi's bar and once again asks Kiryu for a fight. After being defeated for the third time, Kiryu tells him to stop embarrassing himself and that he's not worth fighting. Shortly after Kiryu goes back into the bar, Nagumo is beaten up by the Masuzoe family, who demand to know why Nagumo is late with his protection money. Kiyomi tries to give her money to Nagumo, but he refuses it, telling her that if he accepts the money, he can never return to her bar as a customer anymore. This results in Masuzoe dragging him outside and continuing his beating.
Suddenly, Kiryu comes to Nagumo's rescue and takes down Masuzoe and his goons. Kiryu explains that he helped Nagumo because he was impressed that he stands up to his principle and stays strong in front of the woman he loves. This changes Nagumo's perception of Kiryu, and he comes to respect Kiryu as a 'brother'.
Later, Nagumo introduces Kiryu to Hirose, and they both chat for a while. Suddenly, Matsunaga arrives and calls Nagumo out. He reports that he picked a fight with a customer and Yuta said that ever since Kiryu beat them in baseball, their reputation has decreased. Nagumo tells Matsunaga to take the hits instead of fighting back against the customers, because it's not how they handle business. After the rest of Hirose family leave to handle the customers, Nagumo apologizes to Kiryu for his friends' bad manners and tells him that he's welcomed here anytime.
The next day, when Kiryu comes and ask him and the others about Haruka, Nagumo becomes nervous and tries to avoid him. Later that night, he tells Kiryu everything he knows. When Kiryu showed him her photo, Nagumo finally found out about his real identity as the fourth chairman of the Tojo Clan. He tells Kiryu about how the Hirose Family welcomed Haruka and was friendly with her, as she is very kind and cute. The Hirose Family had been protecting her during her time in Hiroshima. Nagumo also reveals that Haruka had been working at Kiyomi's bar when she was in town.
The next day, he finds out that Kiyomi has a relationship with Takumi Someya of the Tojo Clan, and becomes totally shocked. Ino comes in and informs them that Kiyomi has been kidnapped by yakuza. The yakuza are working for Someya, and he is having a negotiation with the Yomei Federation at a hotel. Nagumo is still determined to rescue her, and goes as far as trying to quit the Hirose Family so that his family will not take the blame. His friends also want to assist him, but Hirose shows up and provides them with masks in order to conceal their identities. After planning their assault, Nagumo, alongside Kiryu and his fellow family members, attack the hotel to rescue Kiyomi.
After taking out the goons in the bathroom, Nagumo accidentally takes off his mask because he's feeling too hot. This causes Masuzoe, who happens to be there, to recognize him, leading to Kiryu also having his cover blown. After Kiryu's battle with Someya, he finds out that Someya has married Kiyomi, and is stricken in grief. Koshimizu, the captain of the Yomei Federation, attempts to exile the Hirose Family for their actions, but the Yomei Federation chairman, Heizo Iwami, tells Koshimizu to spare them.
After the raid at the hotel, Nagumo still feels depressed, because Kiyomi has not only married Someya, but also had a child. He also finds out that their former friend, Tatsukawa, has is suspected to be Haruto's father from Kiyomi's testimony. When Kiryu decides to return to Kamurocho in order to locate Tatsukawa, Nagumo and Yuta decide to accompany him, with Nagumo apparently still upset because of Kiyomi's relationship with Someya.
When they arrive at Kamurocho, Nagumo, Kiryu, and Yuta go to Cafe Alps in order to plan their search for Tatsukawa. They then go to Stardust in order to find him, but suddenly Yuta gets a stomach ache. At the mini-market, Nagumo finds out that Daigo Dojima is going to go on penitentiary soon. Nagumo suspects that Someya would gain more power if Daigo stays behind bars. However, Kiryu cannot do anything about it because he's no longer a member of the Tojo Clan. When they get to Stardust, the bouncer doesn't let them in. Apparently, Yuya and Kazuki no longer own the club. They met Yuya on the street and go to Kanrai to eat. After discussing his condition and Tatsukawa, the new owner of Stardust, Han-Joon Gi, appears and tells Nagumo and the others to meet him at Stardust. On their way to the club, they are attacked by the remnants of Jingweon Mafia. The trio manages to defeat most of them, leaving Yuta and Nagumo to fend off the Koreans while buying Kiryu time to escape.
After defeating all of the Jingweon members, Nagumo heads to Stardust to catch up with Yuta and Kiryu, but he gets lost and goes into a massage parlor instead. He then reunites with Kiryu and Yuta after they have dealt with Han-Joon Gi. They go into the apartment where Tatsukawa lives, only to find out that he has been brutally murdered, along with an unknown woman.
Team Heat Action w/ Kiryu[edit | edit source]
When Kiryu grabs an opponent while standing near Nagumo, and the player presses the Triangle button, the Nagumo Team Heat will play. Kiryu will grab the opponent's arm with his left hand, and push the opponent down by the head with his right hand. Nagumo will rush at the opponent and cross his hands, delivering a cut to the opponent's neck.
