Like all members of the Iwatobi High School Swimming Club, Makoto has a female name.

Despite being on the swim team, Makoto is afraid of the ocean. However, in High☆Speed!, Makoto is not only afraid of the ocean, but the water in general.

Makoto has been described as the wishy-washy type by Haruka, because he is too nice and was unable to decide which club member would be his boyfriend if he were a girl.

Makoto and Haruka appear to have a game that consists of Makoto guessing what Haruka is thinking.

Makoto likes eating green curry and chocolate.

Makoto’s best subject is Literature, while he’s bad at English and Art.

According to Rin, Makoto has a rough but dynamic stroke that leaves everyone behind.

Makoto’s voice actor, Tatsuhisa Suzuki, is the vocalist for OLDCODEX, the band which performed the opening theme for Free!, “Rage on”.

Makoto has won the Muscle Contest held at the renewed Iwatobi Swimming Club, where Gou was one of the judges. However, the one Gou gave the most points was Rin.
