I still can't believe I'm standing here. I wonder if someone like me can survive in a place like this... I'm the Şablon:İmp. A normal high school student selected by chance.


It's finally graduation... I got to meet so many amazing people! I'm glad we spent such a fun time together.

Friendship Events[]

With Korekiyo Shinguji[]

With Korekiyo Shinguji
W-Was that...an empty can?
Ah...here you are, Makoto.
Oh...Kiyo. Did...you happen to see that? How embarrassing...
It appears the can was thrown from a window. You have my condolences.
Getting randomly hit by a can... Man, that's pretty unlucky.
Unlucky? That's an odd thing for an Ultimate Lucky Student to say.
Yeah...I was lucky to have been picked out of all the high schoolers in the country...
But for me, stuff like this is normal. Honestly, I'm more used to being unlucky. I guess they're researching luck here at Hope's Peak Academy, but...I wonder if I'm helping.
Perhaps luck is something not easily measured. Good and bad luck are woven together like rope.
I shall go ahead and say... "Makoto, you are lucky after all."
We ended up chatting, but the reason I came to talk to you was to deliver this.
Oh...that's my wallet!
I wonder when I dropped it... Thanks, Kiyo!
The can hit you and made you cry out... Hearing that, I looked over... And thus, I was able to deliver your wallet. That could be considered good luck, yes?
Um...when you put it like that, maybe it was good luck after all...
Perhaps whether something is good or bad luck needs to be decided after all is said and done.
Well, that can hurt pretty bad... And I dropped my wallet...
But you're right. I'll try being more positive. I was lucky you picked it up, Kiyo. Thanks.

With Sayaka Maizono[]

With Sayaka Maizono
Makoto, did you know the menu in the dining hall is going to change today?
Oh yeah...I was thinking of eating in the dining hall today to try it out.
Wow, I was thinking the same thing. If you don't mind, would you like to go together?
Y-Yeah! Of course!
Phew... That was delicious.
I knew the [[Ultimate Talent Development Plan/Teruteru Hanamura|Şablon:İmp]] was good, but this is like eating at a Michelin star restaurant!
Even though, I've never eaten at a place that fancy before...
Me too...but I know what you mean. It was completely different from what we're used to.
Can you tell what I'm thinking of...right now?
Um... Sorry, I can't.
Sorry for messing with you. I got a little ahead of myself, and I couldn't help teasing you. It's fun spending time with you like this as normal students. That's what I was thinking.
I-I feel the same way.
Back in middle school, I never thought I'd be able to spend time with you like this. I can't really think of anything clever to say, but...it's really fun.
You don't need to think of anything clever. I'm just glad you feel the same way as me.
...I'd also like it if we could eat together again some time.
Did I...guess what you were thinking?
Y-Yeah... Let's eat together again sometime.
Yes, I'd love to.

With Celestia Ludenberg and Nagito Komaeda[]

With Celestia Ludenberg and Nagito Komaeda
Oh, it's Celeste and Nagito. That's an interesting combo.
Makoto...perfect timing. I was just about to go get you!
Is this also a result of someone's luck? Although, I am unsure which of ours it may be.
Huh? Wh-What are you talking about?
I am talking about Mahjong, Makoto. Do you enjoy playing it?
Mahjong? I've never played it...
That's okay. Neither have I.
I'm not sure what's going on, but...are you saying you want us to play Mahjong?
Yes I am. You two, who have the same Şablon:İmp talent and I, blessed with luck in gambling...
I wonder which of us would win in a match. Are you not curious as well?
Celeste and I found a Mahjong set in the Game Room...we're pretty lucky.
Um...Celeste, you always win lots of money from gambling, right?
I don't have anything I could give you when I lose...
Don't worry. I simply want to test our luck... I have no intention of betting anything.
Not betting anything... That's fine then. It'll just be a normal game...
But I'm just a beginner at Mahjong. Is it really okay for me to be your opponent, Celeste?
Even if you are a beginner, if you have Lady Luck by your side, it is still possible to win.
You often claim to be unlucky, but... I suspect you are, in fact, quite lucky indeed.
If we're talking about luck, I think Nagito's luck is better. I'm usually unlucky...
Someone like me won't win... Celeste's talent as the Ultimate Gambler is way more amazing.
Of course, I don't intend to lose. So let us begin immediately.
Oh, but...don't you usually play Mahjong with four people? Who should be our fourth person?
Why don't we ask someone who will take great interest in the results of this match?
Huh? Is there someone like that?
The headmaster.
What!? Th-The headmaster!?
So I'll become the stepping stone Celeste can use to let her talent shine, right?
Then, let us go. I look forward to seeing who will win...
Playing against the headmaster... Hey, I don't know about this, guys...
Ho-Hold on, you two!
The headmaster joined you, and the four of you played Mahjong for quite some time...
But before you could figure out who was luckiest, the headmaster lost pathetically!

With Kyoko Kirigiri[]

With Kyoko Kirigiri
Huh? Kyoko? Why are you here so late?
I'm on my way back from the headmaster's room.
The headmaster's room? Could it be...
...It's for work. I can't really talk about it in detail.
Huh? It's for...work?
Um...I've been wondering, Kyoko, but... Is Headmaster Kirigiri your...
What do you plan to do with that information?
What do I—? I was just curious.
You're curious about me?
I know you don't like talking about yourself, but... We're in the same class so...I want us to learn about each other and become better friends.
Hm...I'll answer your question then. My surname is uncommon, so it's natural you'd think that. The headmaster is...my father.
So he's your father after all... That's amazing... The headmaster of Hope's Peak and his daughter, an Ultimate, working together.
The fact that we're related doesn't matter. It's natural for a detective to take on cases... Even as family members, we only talk about work.
My father left when I was little, so we have nothing to talk about.
Is...that so... But...there's really nothing you want to talk to him about?
I'm sure there are some things he wants to say to you.
I doubt it...
How do you know that for sure? Have you ever asked him?
I have no reason to waste my time confirming that. I don't think anything of him.
Sorry, I've said too much... I assume you regret asking me now...
No, that's not true. I'm glad you told me. It's probably something you wouldn't talk about with just anyone, right?
If you don't mind, I'd like you to tell me more about yourself...if that's okay.
If I feel like it...

With Hajime Hinata and Shuichi Saihara[]

With Hajime Hinata and Shuichi Saihara
Huh? Hajime? I'm surprised to see you here.
Yeah, I got a neat gift from my friend just now, and then we got caught up talking.
I'm on my way back to the reserve course now. If I'm late, Usami won't let me back in.
When you get something you really like, it makes you want to spend more time with that person.
That's true. I'm always giving gifts, so maybe I was a little too eager to receive one this time.
Ah, I'm also usually giving presents rather than receiving them.
It's fun, isn't it? Thinking about the person being happy...
Seeing their face when you give them something they really like makes you happy too.
But sometimes they react poorly...
Yeah...it can make you feel pretty bad.
Sometimes when that happens, I think about it later and wonder why I even gave them that.
But you're always so confident when you hand it to them...
When someone gives me a gift, I get shy when I think about why they've given it to me...
But when I see that look of sincere generosity on their face, I can't help but feel happy.
You're right... Seeing a face like that can make you happy all on its own.
...Ah, I'm getting embarrassed thinking about the face I make when I receive a present...
Now that I think about it, I should probably get my friend something in return...

Seasonal Events[]

Sports Festival[]

Today is the sports festival... You're in the scavenger hunt! The card you pulled is...
Şablon:İmp!? There aren't many people that fit that description...
I know someone like that in my class...
Chihiro? Could you come with me please?
Huh...? You want me to run with you? Um, I'm not that fast... Are you fine with that?
Oh that's fine! It has to be you.
O-Okay...I'll try my best then. Thank you.
You ran through the goal with Chihiro!
She's wearing a tall hat, but she's short...
Himiko? Could you come with me please?
Nyeeeh...that's a pain.
Bear with me... Please, Himiko?
If you want me to move, you gotta persuade me with magic...
Magic? I can't do magic!
Himiko wouldn't budge...
I'm not sure, I'll ask them...
Angie? Could you come with me please?
Hmmm? Me? I don't mind, but can you tell me what it said on the card you drew?
Umm...it said Şablon:İmp
I see... And you're sure I qualify? Our size difference is not that great, you know.
Well, I think I'm a little taller...
Ummm, I suppose that will work. When we cross the goal, I'll hunch a little.
Oh, thanks, that would help.
In return...will you be a sacrifice?
...A what?
Nyahahaha! C'mon, let's hurry up and go!
You ran to the goal with Angie, still wondering what she meant!

School Festival[]

Today is the school festival... You went to a classroom doing an escape room!
Let's show some teamwork and escape together! What do you do?
Someone was checking all over the place
Kokichi, you looked like you were checking everything out. Did you find anything?
Yup, I already found something that looks important.
Buuuut, I hid it again somewhere in a really tricky hiding spot.
What!? Why would you do that!?
Tell me, Makoto...which is the lie? That I found something...? Or that I hid it...?
Wh-What the...? Kokichi, we're in the middle of an escape room, we need to work together!
Nee-heehee...I just thought it'd make this game more interesting.
If we're gonna play, we might as well play at the hardest difficulty, right? C'mon, answer.
Wh-Why are you raising the difficulty on us!? We're on the same team!
You worked hard to solve the mystery, even with Kokichi constantly underfoot...
I'll check my surroundings
Yeah, that's a good idea. For games like this...the first thing you should do is find all the clues.
You're awfully calm, Şablon:İmp...
Action games, RPGs, and of course logic games can have investigation and puzzle elements... So I'm definitely used to solving things like this, but...
I'm usually playing these kinds of games by myself, so playing it co-op is new.
You're right... Thinking about it like that makes me kind of excited!
Excited... Yeah...I agree. Looking forward to working with you, Makoto.
You worked hard on solving the mystery with Chiaki!
Has someone played an escape room before?
Oh, I'm just plain experienced in escape rooms.
I've gone with my cosplay friends to a number of anime escape rooms before.
Interesting...then we can depend on you, Tsumugi!
Well...I've never been able to escape, though. I get pretty far...then I get caught in a trap.
I-I guess it's not that easy to escape...
Well, this is just a school festival. Maybe it won't be that hard.
You never know... This game *was* created by an Ultimate student.
What if we're never able to escape and we have to live in this classroom forever?
...Let's make sure that doesn't happen!
You worked hard with Tsumugi to escape the room!


Your last winter at the academy... Graduation will be here before you know it.
With so few months left in the school year, you are overcome by bittersweet nostalgia...
I'll go to the classroom
Oh, Makoto! I was just thinking about inviting you!
Me? You and Byakuya want *me*? That's pretty rare...
Don't get ahead of yourselves. Hina is just speaking for me.
Geez, I told you that you're invited, too!
What nonsense. If you really wanted me to go, I could go.
The Byakuya from the other class gathered all his classmates for a party, though...
Don't compare me to him.
Hold on, I'm lost...
Sorry about that. Did you know Chiaki and Peko's class had a party yesterday?
Yeah, a Christmas party.
Yeah! When I heard how lively and energetic it was, I was so envious.
Oh, you want our class to have a party or something?
Yeah, that's what I was getting at!
We have no call for a social gathering.
That's true... The last Christmas of our school life had already passed.
Ahhh, why didn't I think of this sooner?
Well, everyone was busy on Christmas. Isn't it better to do it now?
Oh, good point. That reminds me, Sayaka was doing a Christmas live.
It would've been a problem if Sayaka didn't come! I'm surprised you remembered, Makoto!
And, so...you wanted me to come to the party?
No. It seems Hina would like you to *plan* this party.
Huh? Me?
You're friends with everyone, right, Makoto? More people would come if you invited them.
Ah, I'm not so sure about that...
Definitely! Of course, I'll help plan and set up the party.
Okay then...I'll help with whatever I can.
Alright! Let's make it a fun party!
...I'll be keeping a close eye on you.
You planned a fun class party!
I'll have a meal at the dining hall
We don't have much time left... I should relax in the dining hall.
I'm glad that I'll be graduating. I didn't know how that would turn out, but...
Why do you say that, Shuichi? You're an excellent detective.
Ah, no, I just...solved one case and was selected to be an Ultimate.
I'm afraid I'm nothing but a failure compared to a great detective like Kyoko.
Kyoko is amazing...but I think that you're pretty great too, Shuichi.
Besides, you two are pretty different in terms of detective work, right?
And if you're worried about getting your Ultimate talent by "chance"...
...imagine how *I* feel. I'm the Şablon:İmp.
Ah, like Nagito? He *does* seem to have incredible luck...
But perhaps there are different kinds of luck.
You're probably right. I actually consider myself the "unlucky" type.
We're already this close to graduating. I think you can be more confident.
Same to you, Shuichi.
Yeah... I feel as though I have much more confidence in myself than I used to.
You and Shuichi talked about your school memories...
I'll have a look at the school building
Oh, Makoto...what's wrong? Aren't you cold out here?
Oh, Tsumugi. I wasn't really doing anything in particular.
I was just thinking about how it's been three years since I stood here last...
I see... It's almost graduation. I can understand feeling lonely.
Maybe...but I feel like we should be happy about our time here too.
You've gotten a bit more confident, haven't you Makoto? You look different these days.
Huh? You think so?
Yeah, I do. When I look at you, I feel like I'm looking at hope itself.
You're exaggerating... My only strong point is that I'm a little more gung-ho than others.
That's what's amazing about you. Just being with you makes me feel positive. It's like...being infected with hope. If you were a fictional character, I bet you'd have a lot of fans. Everyone would love you.
To the point where it'd be like, "Ugh, this guy again..." Er...no, sorry, I mean—
No, come on...you're making me embarrassed... But thanks, Tsumugi.
You and Tsumugi talked about your school memories...

Appearances in Seasonal Events for Other Characters[]

With Byakuya Togami (Imposter)[]

Today is the school festival... You'll be taking command of the shop selling Teruteru's food! It looks like you have a guest right off the bat... How will you greet them?
I'll greet them personally
I'm glad you're here, Makoto. I am running this shop, so you will definitely be satisfied.
Um, Byakuya is okay, right?
...I see.
Makoto...it seems as though you want to say something to me.
Um, I don't know how to say it exactly...
There's no need. You need only enjoy yourself right now.
You earnestly served the confused Makoto...

With Gonta Gokuhara[]

Today is the school festival...and you're hosting the Şablon:İmp exhibit!
No one has visited your exhibit yet... But finally, someone has come!
Yasuhiro, can Gonta help you find bug?
Oh, hey. You got any ladybugs here, Gonta?
Of course! Gonta got lotsa cute ladybugs!
Nice! Just what I wanted to hear! You might not know this, Gonta, but...in some countries, ladybugs are good luck!
Well!? How about we try selling the ladybugs you raised!?
Huh!? Sell ladybugs!?
A symbol of good luck that's been raised by the Şablon:İmp! It'll sell like crazy!
N-No... Bugs are Gonta's friends... But if bugs go to nice person who take care of them...
Great idea! This is the chance to try and get lotsa people to cherish ladybugs!
I bet we could sell em for a lot...er, I mean, get lots of people to like bugs!
No, that's wrong!
M-Makoto!? Why are you here!?
After I saw you go in here... I got a little worried.
*gasp* I had a great idea! Makoto, write a testimonial about buying a ladybug!
"I was able to become the Şablon:İmp thanks to this..." It'll sell like super crazy!
I-If I write something like that, it'd just be a lie, I've never had a ladybug...
Oh, do you wanna live with Gonta's ladybug? It really cute and...bring you good luck, too!
You believed that stuff Hiro said!?
Makoto stopped you from accepting Yasuhiro's offer!
Too bad. You just wanted everyone to understand how cute ladybugs are.

With Hajime Hinata[]

Today is the main course's school festival... You were invited so you tried the escape room! Let's work hard and cooperate with the others! So, what will you do?
There's something written on the wall...
This has got to be a clue, but...maybe it's a red herring instead?
It could be...we should consider all of our options.
You're right. This whole room is suspicious, but I don't know if I'm thinking too hard or not.
We should be able to solve this if we work through everything together.
...Sorry that I don't have any better advice...
No, I agree. Let's all talk it over and solve things one at a time.
...You worked together with the others to solve the mystery!

With Junko Enoshima (Mukuro)[]

Your last winter at the academy... The closing ceremony ended, and only a few months are left. Your little sister asked to meet with you to have a talk. What will you do?
Maybe I'll stay in the classroom for a bit...
Junko...you're not leaving?
Not yet. I've gotten a little attached to this classroom.
I see... Yeah, it is almost graduation. We won't be here much longer.
Yeah... It's kind of sad.
So, what is the Ultimate Lucky Student going to do after graduation? I honestly can't imagine.
It's tough to say what someone with my Ultimate talent would even do...
But if you're going to be a graduate of this prestigious academy...
I'm sure any company out there would be honored to have the Ultimate Lucky Student.
Junko, are you going to continue modeling?
Um...honestly, I'm not sure.
Why is that?
Well, sometimes I catch myself just staring off into space, thinking about it...
Thinking about what I can do. Should I just keep doing what I've always been doing? Or should I put more thought into this?
Oh, don't worry, this isn't some serious life story or anything like that.
I just mean fashion isn't something I can do forever.
It's possible to do a 180, really switch things up.
I see...must be tough.
It will be. There are a lot of demands made of models, after all.
You can't just...change so easily.
Well, no matter what you decide, I'll cheer you on.
I might not be much help, but I can at least listen to you.
Makoto...I told you, this wasn't supposed to be serious!
But you're making me tear up a little bit!
You felt like you would want to talk to Makoto more in the future...

With Kyoko Kirigiri[]

Your last winter at the academy...but you've been too busy lately to be sad about graduation! You did some detective fieldwork at dawn, and now you're back at school... What will you do?
Maybe I'll drop by the classroom
Kyoko? Is something wrong? The closing ceremony is over...
Nothing, I just stopped by... I've been so busy with work lately that it's hard to visit often.
I see. You do seem pretty busy lately, Kyoko...
You weren't here for Christmas. I thought... I wouldn't see you until next year...
That's what I thought, too.
What are you doing here alone?
I thought you might...come back here.
Um, Kyoko...? I know you're busy, but...
If there's something bothering you, you can tell me. I can help you, Kyoko.
Maybe I won't be much help, but... I want to try.
Then...tell me about yourself, Makoto.
Huh? Me? Why now?
I have told you stories about myself, so I think you should tell me yours now, right?
W-Well, I guess you're right...
It's just...I'm so normal. I'm so normal that my story might be over real quick...
Your normal stories might be a nice change of pace for me.
I don't really know how normal boys live...
Ever since I was a child, I lived abroad. Afterward, I went to an all-girls middle school. The only males I interacted with were other detectives or clients.
I see... Then my story might be new to you.
And...I don't mind the story, as long as it's about you...
I should control my emotions better...and I shouldn't overstep my boundaries, but...
You spent some time talking to Makoto about various things...

With Leon Kuwata[]

Today is the the sports festival... But you can't impress the girls with your baseball skills. Unfortunately, you have to play soccer instead. What position do you play?
Alright, I'll be a defender or whatever. Makoto, you play forward, get us some goals.
Th-That's your entire strategy?
Calm down, Makoto. It's soccer. We can't even win with this team anyway.
...Maybe not, but I'll still try my hardest!
You actually managed to win with that defense!

With Monomi[]

Your last winter at the academy... Graduation will be here before you know it.
Let's take care of as much unfinished business as possible! What will you do?
I wanna talk to someone
Oh, it's Makoto! Hey, Makoto!
Oh, hey Monomi. What are you doing here?
I felt like talking, so I figured if I stayed here, someone would eventually show up.
After spending three years with everyone, looking at the schoolyard feels...bittersweet.
It's a strange feeling for me, too...
From the entrance ceremony to today...it's been almost three whole years.
Makoto...did you have a wonderful time at the academy?
Yeah, I did. At first, I was worried that someone like me would never fit in...
But I'm glad I was able to be here. It really...made me happy.
I'm glad to hear that. I know I wasn't much help or anything...
But I'm really happy that you and the others can graduate.
I...really wanted to be everyone's teacher.
T-Teacher? Really?
Things didn't quite go as planned, thanks to Monokuma...
But spending time with everyone at Hope's Peak Academy was really fun!
I couldn't be everyone's teacher...but even after graduation, I'll be watching over you guys!
You and Makoto reminisced about the academy for a while...

With Sakura Ogami[]

Today is the fall school festival... A pop star, a fashionista, a swordmaster, martial artists... All the girls with sports and entertainment-related talents are putting on a fashion show! Unfortunately, that includes you, too... You have time before the show. What will you do?
Perhaps I will help set up the stage...
Is there something I can help with?
Sakura? Weren't you going to be up on stage next?
That is the plan, but I have some time before it begins...
Makoto, if memory serves, you are not the assigned helper for this event.
Y-Yeah, I was just going to watch for a bit, but then they asked me to help out...
Then allow me to lighten your load. I can be of use with any heavy labor.
Oh, no, I appreciate the concern, but it would be bad if you got hurt now...
...Do I look like I get hurt easily?
N-No, that's not what I meant...
It's just that, it's pretty busy, who knows what could happen?
You should be preparing to take the stage, Sakura.
If you're going to say that...then I will wait patiently. I apologize for taking your time.
No, not at all! Do your best!
You were distracted by your conversation with your classmate!

With Sayaka Maizono[]

Your last winter at the academy...but you still have concerts lined up around New Year's! You finished your Christmas show and came home late, but you're restless. What will you do?
I wonder if that person is still awake...
Sayaka...were you waiting long?
Makoto...sorry for calling you out so late.
It's okay. I wanted to talk to you about the concert today! I'm so glad you invited me!
Thank you for coming to the concert today. I saw you from the stage, and it encouraged me even more.
Oh no, I should be thanking you. It was really fun. All of your fans were watching you with big smiles on their faces! And me too... I thought it was amazing. That one person had that much power.
It's a little strange, you know? The girl who was on stage, shining like a star... is now right here in front of me. I guess it's a little late to be realizing that though.
It really is late...
Yeah. You've been that close for years...
Yeah, I may be a pop star, but I'm also your classmate, Sayaka Maizono. Even after we graduate, it'll continue. I won't ever be too far from you.
So, as long as you keep watching me, I'll be happy.
Yeah...I'll keep cheering you on, Sayaka. So that your dreams come true. I'll be right here.
It's a promise.
As your breath condensed into fog from the cold, you had a nice conversation with Makoto.

With Toko Fukawa[]

Today is dreaded summer sports festival... You're forced into the scavenger hunt... Ugh, it can't be helped... Which card will you choose?
I always want to pull the card on the right...
The right card is Şablon:İmp... Ugh... I can't get something that doesn't exist...[1]
F-Forget it! Hey, Makoto!
Huh? Me?
Come with me! Y-You aren't a perfect match, but you're better than the rest!
Wh-What!? Wait, Toko!
I'm doing the scavenger hunt, too, y'know!?
You forced Makoto to run with you to the goal...


  1. In the original Japanese version of the game, the exchange between Toko Fukawa and Makoto Naegi during the Sports Festival event references Makoto's sister Komaru Naegi, protagonist of Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls and eventual best friend of Toko. Toko complains the "Best Friend" card is bad as she "can't take some who isn't here" as Komaru doesn't attend Hope's Peak Academy, and picks Makoto as her answer since he and Komaru share a surname.

    Toko: のカードは「1番の友達」…ほら、嫌な結果だった ああもう…そこの苗木!
    Makoto: …えっ?
    Toko: あんた、あたしと一緒に来なさい!
    Makoto: 苗木:…えっ?ボク?
    Toko: あんた、あたしと一緒に来なさい!苗字しか合ってないけど…他のヤツよりはマシよ!
