The broadcasting committee relies on him for his excellent ability to gather information. It wasn't his intention to become a model in the first place, but he's been in show business since childhood because of his parents. He's a real looker when he takes off his glasses. A member of the unit Trickstar.

Ensemble Stars! Appearance

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 blue 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.

On stage Makoto wears Trickstar's uniform. It includes a blue plaid half-sleeved jacket worn over a white v-neck shirt. The rolled up sleeve cuffs of the jacket are white. The lapels as well as the sides and shoulders of the jacket are black, with four tiny golden stars on the edge of the left lapel and golden trimming on the shoulders. Makoto wears matching blue plaid pants that are rolled up from the ankles. The uniform has multiple thin golden belts and an outlined star design on the side. He also wears a strap on his right side that's green with a white stripe. On the left side, there's a draped black bandana with a white stripe and dotted with tiny silver specks. He wears green sneakers with white laces. The outside of the shoes feature a star motif with the name "Trickstar" embroidered under it. Makoto wears two green wristbands. He also wears a gold necklace featuring an abstract design which may be interpreted as a combination of the letters "T" and "S" (from Trickstar), together with a star in the middle.


Personality

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)[2][3].

Makoto's hobby is gaming. He enjoys simple playstyles, and appreciates any game as long as he feels accomplished[4].

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[5]. 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[6]. 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?”[7]

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[8], it wasn’t until then he had properly demanded Izumi to treat him as an equal, and treat him for who he is[9].

Etymology

Makoto's first name means "truth" or "genuineness," "seriousness." His last name is homophonous with the word 勇気, which means "courage."
