A perfectionist, Makoto has a strong sense of responsibility and refuses to yield to reality. Similar to Fuuka Yamagishi and Yukiko Amagi, she is intelligent, honest, and very hardworking. She has a compassionate side and reveals herself to be an understanding young lady. She also works hard, making sure everyone is accounted for.

Despite her serious and no nonsense nature, she has her hidden vulnerabilities. One of these happen to be her fear of hearing ghost stories. When the Thieves introduce themselves properly to Futaba Sakura, Makoto shows levels of anxiety. Given how Futaba likes her house dark and quiet, reminding Makoto of a horror movie. When Futaba scares her out of nowhere, the girl yelps and clings to the protagonist‘s leg. She begins gibbering and muttering, begging her sister to save her. Until, she realizes that Futaba isn’t a ghost. Futaba herself finds this hilarious. Thus, she repeatedly teases Makoto about horror movies throughout the game.

However, beneath her calm exterior is a load of suppressed anger. This leaks out during her fights which Makoto displays her brutal method of fighting. And unfortunately for the team, it also shows in her brutal way of driving.


After the death of her father in the line of duty, Makoto feels guilty that her sister has to shoulder everything. Because she wishes no longer to burden Sae, she pushes herself hard to study and do everything she can. In doing so, she intends to enter a top notch university. In the process, get a scholarship and relieve her sister’s burden.

Currently a third year honor student, Makoto currently is the president of the Student Council in Shujin Academy. After their volleyball coach confessed and was arrested, the principal asks her to investigate the possibility that the Phantom Thieves of Hearts are students from their school.
