Makoto Isshiki (一色 誠 Isshiki Makoto?) is a fictional character in the Japanese light novel series and anime, Chūnibyō Demo Koi ga Shitai!. He is voiced by Souichirou Hoshi in the anime. In the English dub, he is voiced by Greg Ayres.
Makoto Isshiki was the first friend Yuuta Togashi made in high school. He is friendly and sits behind Yuuta. Similarly to Yuuta, he hardly knew anyone in their class at first. He often makes profiles of other girls in the class. He later joins the Light Music Club to get attentions from girls until he met Kumin Tsuyuri. He bought a new red electric guitar but barely knew how to play it. Later on, he decides to leave the club, but his seniors didn't approve his decision.
When Makoto was in junior high, he had a baseball crew cut. He doesn’t like having a crew cut because he thinks it makes him looks like a grade schooler. Unfortunately, his father turned bald at the age of 35 and he inherited his father’s genes. Judging from the genes, he'll go bald in a little over 20 years. Makoto was caught in the act of having a poll on the “Cutest girl in the class” and he accepted the self-given punishment of shaving off all of his hair.
Appearance and Personality
Makoto has a dark coloured skin and blue eyes. He had short black hair until it was shaved off later. He is friendly and befriends Yuuta on their first day in class. He often makes profiles on other girls and is constantly trying to get their attention. He falls in love with Kumin when she is longing to pat his head.
- Yuuta Togashi - Makoto befriended Yuuta and became close with him; he came to Yuuta for help when he received a love letter from someone. He also helped Yuuta out as well; when Nibutani found out about the cutie poll, Makoto defended Yuuta and the boys involved and admitted he was responsible for the poll. When Yuuta realized that he had feelings for Rikka, Makoto encouraged him to confess to Rikka and get into a relationship with her. By the second season, however, it seemed that Yuuta no longer cared for Makoto very much, and meanwhile Makoto focused on other things like becoming a school representive and getting Kumin's attention.
- Kumin Tsuyuri - Makoto fell in love with Kumin, and is the only girl he has focused on ever since. He has tried many ways to get Kumin's attention and confess his feelings for her, but continues to fail to do so. Still, he never gives up.
- Shinka Nibutani - Makoto was initially attracted to Nibutani, but after Nibutani showed her true colors, Makoto became afraid of her, especially after he admitted that he was the one who made the cutie poll.
