- "In the end, children always listen to their parents. That's why, if they want to do something seriously, regardless of the result, I don't want to stop them."
- —Makoto Edogawa[src]
Makoto Edogawa (
Makoto married Yukie, with whom he had Oto. Thanks to his successful business, Edo Quality Cosmetics, they lead a comfortable life for several years. The Edogawa family was close to the Hase family, even arranging an engagement between their children.
In October 2017, Makoto's business went bankrupt, changing the family's lifestyle drastically. Makoto went away to work on a fishing boat to pay his debts, while his wife and daughter remained in Tokyo. In June 2018, Kazuma Hase, probably prompted by his wife, decided to open a makeup department at Hase Live and was going to hire Makoto as the head. Makoto returned to Tokyo later that month. Upon returning, he overheard Rie upset about the result of the competition between Tenma and Haruto Kaguragi. Makoto told her that children should be allowed to make their own decisions "regardless of the result."
Makoto was a tall, good-looking man probably in his mid-forties. His general appearance was neat and tidy, including his short black hair and simple clothes. After working on a fishing boat, Makoto had a noticeable tan and looked considerably more disheveled.
Personality and traits
He had a calm disposition, which contrasted with his wife's nervous personality. Makoto was an understanding father and believed that adults should allow their children to make their own decisions.
