"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 (江戸川 誠 (えどがわ まこと) Edogawa Makoto) was the husband of Yukie and father of Oto. His company was once the leading cosmetics manufacturer until it went bankrupt. Afterwards, he began working as a fisherman to pay off his debts.


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.[2]

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.[2] 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.[3] 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."[1]
