Makoto Sawatari (沢渡 真琴 Sawatari Makoto ) is a mysterious young woman who only remembers that she has a grudge against Yuichi Aizawa related to events that occurred seven years prior to his return.
Makoto's theme is The Fox and the Grapes.
Makoto is a light-skinned young woman whose most noticeable feature is her long, flowing orange hair that is tied in two pigtails on the sides of her head with red ribbons where each tail comes down to her waist with fringes going down to her eyebrows and light blue eyes.
Makoto usually wears a blue denim jacket over a yellow-beige shirt, as well as a short, black skirt. She wears long socks with a white-and-black pattern with black boots over them.
Makoto is first presented as a rather cold person, shown by her suddenly attacking Yuichi Aizawa in the middle of town during her first appearance. When she gets taken to the Minase household, she still acts very rude and stubborn, however, she slowly becomes warmer towards Yuichi over time, even becoming rather affectionate and clingy towards him, particularly when it becomes harder for her to maintain her human form.
Makoto is shown to pull very violent pranks, such as shooting fireworks into Yuichi's room while he's asleep.
She's also a person who is rash about her decisions and does not care about the consequences of her actions, proven by her buying pork buns and manga with money she was tasked to spend on dinner.
- The name Makoto means "real, genuine" (真) (ma) and "Japanese harp" (琴) (koto).
- Makoto was named after a girl Yuichi Aizawa had a crush on when he was young, and her first name (真琴 - Makoto) roughly means "True Koto" (Koto is a Japanese musical instrument).
- Makoto's surname Sawatari means "marsh" (沢) (sawa) and "transit, ford, ferry, cross, import, deliver, diameter, migrate" (渡) (tari).
- Makoto resembles Asuka Soryu Langley from Evangelion.
