This dude ain't no hero.

Makoto Itou (伊藤 誠, Itō Makoto) is the protagonist of School Days and Summer/Shiny Days, as well as a side character in Cross Days. A generally mild-mannered student of class 1-3, his life becomes more complicated when seatmate Sekai Saionji helps him with his romantic life and sets him up with Kotonoha Katsura.

Why He Sucks

  1. In the anime, he first starts off as an average student who is too shy to ask out a girl he likes. But throughout the series, he was badly flanderized into a lying, cheating, irredeemable jerk who sleeps with just about any girl he gets his hands on.
  2. Besides cheating on other girls, he scolds one girl and publicly embarrass her that anyone would consider it too distasteful than necessary.
  3. He generally flirts with tons of girls at school. He "loves" them for their bodies and earning sexual gratification rather than for who they are.
  4. Not only does he hurt the girls who love him, but countless other girls who have fallen for his "charm", causing a lot of suffering and devastation for them.
  5. Additionally, due to this, he drove two girls into insanity and he is directly responsible for Katsura’s mental collapse.
  6. When Sekai Saionji reveals her possible pregnancy to Makoto, he refuses to take responsibility like a coward.
  7. His psychotic character development actually RUINED this character from any sign of redemption whatsoever.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Unlike most harem series, (even though he or the series on its own may anger viewers alike) he serves an as a good example of how perverse behavior and little regard for others’ emotions can produce severe consequences.
  2. His acts of womanizing have bitten him back in the ass before. And at the end of the anime, he receives his own comeuppance for what he's done.
  3. He at least showed to have some remorse for his actions.
  4. His design is pretty cute.


  • His birthday is October 16.
  • Due to the fact that he treats women badly and he has a sex addiction, he is widely hated by many audiences.
  • He has children with Sekai and Setsuna. However, the continuity is unknown.
  • His first name translates to "sincerity".
