Experienced as a child model, his posing technique is unmatched. As a person, he's cheerful and easy to get along with. His glasses are his charm point. With a bright, charming singing voice, Makoto's performances are heartfelt and flexible.
Um, my name is Makoto Yuuki. I'm part of Trickstar, a unit under Starmaker Production, and I work hard every day with my friends! While I used to be a child model, these days I want to make everyone smile as an idol. I've been hard at work practicing my singing and dancing, so I'd be happy if you could me for yourself at one of our performances! Oh, and I'm on social media too! I'll be posting about everyone in Trickstar, so if you're interested, check it out!
Ukki~ is Trickstar's biggest joker! His charm point is his shiny, polished glasses! That's all! ...Just kidding, just kidding! Ukki~'s totally gorgeous when he takes off his glasses, and ever since he entered high school, he's been active as an idol with us in Trickstar! He's a hard worker, he's really good at gathering information, and he's always helping out the rest of us! Keep up the A+ support, Ukki~! ☆
Makoto is a boy of average height and build. He has short dark blonde hair that is parted from the right. His eyes are green, and he wears blue rimmed glasses. He wears the school's uniform with the collar slightly undone, and a green tie. He also wears a dark blue button-up sweater with red and light cream colored designs on the front. He wears dull light brown sneakers with light yellow accents and a light yellow circle on the heel, with white laces.
A former model, Makoto is a newbie to the idol industry who takes a lot of comfort in Trickstar. Makoto takes pride in being the "funny guy" (boke) in Trickstar's comedy skits, however this doesn't actually correspond to his actual role in their dynamic, as he is more of a "straight guy" (tsukkomi).
Makoto's hobby is gaming. He enjoys simple playstyles, and appreciates any game as long as he feels accomplished.
Although still extremely skilled at modeling, his experience in the modeling industry has weighed down on him to the point he swore to never model again. He developed a severe fear of cameras, which causes him to freeze and become unable to convey a proper expression when a camera is pointed at him. During his first year at Yumenosaki, the sight of one was enough to cause him to scream. With his friends' support, he has gradually grown more accustomed to them. This trauma stems from his time as a model, but it is unclear how it developed specifically.
He opened back up by enrolling in Yumenosaki after deciding to make use of his modeling skills as an idol instead. He believed becoming an idol would have less pressure and be more manageable than returning to modeling. Due to his lack of practical skills, he makes use of his knowledge of the entertainment world. However, he is often insecure about his lack of talent as an idol, compared to his natural talent as a model. Despite this, he has no intention to return to being a model, as he truly loves being an idol. Makoto is also good with computers and at gaming.
His time with Trickstar allowed Makoto to slowly rebuild his confidence. By pushing himself to train hard and develop in the areas he lacked in, he felt more and more at home in Trickstar. As he grew, he developed a stronger self-awareness that allowed him to find closure with both Izumi and the modeling industry.
In Summer Live, he reveals for the first time that his biggest strength is that he’s willing to do whatever he has to do to get by. However, this strength is achieved by shutting off his personal feelings in order to do what has to be done, no matter how painful it may be. During inescapable situations, Makoto ends up shutting down his emotions to get the job done, and does it well. This is shaped by his negative experience in the modeling industry, which would put his work and obligations before his personal feelings, and his own personal sense of perfection and professionalism.
Rei once says this to Makoto;, “You are no good at all. (…) You have a sparkle, as well, but you are throwing that away yourself. (…) You are afraid. You hesitate to show yourself. What could it be that has you so frightened?”
Before the Trickstar and Knights joint live, Makoto comes to the realization that much of his self-doubt and hatred has stemmed from Izumi’s blunt treatment of him, often insulting his identity as an idol in order to coerce him back into the modeling industry. Although he had stood up for himself many times in the past and has made settlements with Izumi, it wasn’t until then he had properly demanded Izumi to treat him as an equal, and treat him for who he is.
Makoto's first name means "truth" or "genuineness," "seriousness." His last name is homophonous with the word 勇気, which means "courage."
- Makoto's autograph consists of his full name, rendered in kanji. The autograph also features a smiley face.
- Makoto is very skilled at information gathering, especially through the net, and often uses this ability to support Trickstar.
- Makoto's specialty is tinkering with electronics, and he is quite good with his hands.
- So far, Makoto has been shown to be better at video games than anyone else in the cast, including the Game Research Club members.
- Makoto wears glasses as a way to distance himself from his past image as a model.
- Makoto has briefly considered becoming a pro-gamer idol as per Jun Sazanami's suggestion. While this is dismissed as a joke, he is integrating more gaming-related work into his job as an idol.
