Makoto Nanaya is a playable character starting from BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II. She is a former classmate of Tsubaki Yayoi, Carl Clover, Noel Vermillion, and Jin Kisaragi from the Military Academy.

InformationEdit

She is a squirrel-type beastkin and is considerably hyperactive with a short attention span, though she has proven to be rather cunning when she needs to be. She is outgoing and adventurous. She has a few complexes about her race, but nonetheless, she acknowledges who she is and is proud of it. In BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, Makoto works for the Novus Orbis Librarium Intelligence Department with Hazama but is actually a spy for Sector Seven. In the True Ending, she defects from the NOL after finding out what happened and leaves with Noel and Iron Tager.

In Makoto's arcade ending in Continuum Shift II, it is revealed that one of the reasons Makoto is in the 13th Hierarchical City of Kagutsuchi is because of her discovery of the several failed attempts by the NOL to create Noel at Ikaruga.

Continuum Shift ExtendEdit

In Makoto's True Ending in BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend, it was revealed that during Makoto's time in Ikaruga, she had discovered a computer that was still gathering data from the Cauldron. She also found a file on the 12th prime field device created by Relius Clover and that it was none other than Noel.

Before Makoto could go back with the data she collected, the Cauldron knocked her unconscious and sent her soul to a parallel world where she met an injured Jin and Hazama, who was out to kill Jin. They later met up with Bang Shishigami, who decided to heal Jin's wounds. She then met up with Tager and Kokonoe to give them a disk, but she failed to give Kokonoe the right password saying it was Gnu when it was actually Baa. Kokonoe asked her the date of the disk, and Makoto said it was January 3, 2200. Kokonoe said that disk was useless to them because today's date was December 31, 2199.

Shocked and confused, Makoto headed back to see Jin and found that he has escaped. She runs to the NOL where she met up with Tsubaki. Tsubaki told Makoto that she joined the Zero Squadron just to bring Jin back, and when she was done, she was going back to the 4th Thaumaturgist Squad. This caused Makoto to remember that Tsubaki joined the Zero Squadron out of her own free will after graduation. Then, Hazama showed up and told them that Ragna the Bloodedge was here, making Jin run after him. Makoto told Tsubaki to go after him and that she needed to talk to Hazama. Makoto asked Hazama where Noel was, and Hazama said she would not find Noel anywhere on the planet and that her sudden appearance messed up his entire plan. Before he could attack Makoto, Rachel Alucard jumped in and saved her, explaining the situation and how she can get back to her own world.

Makoto's decision to go to Kagutsuchi

After Makoto returned to her own world, Rachel told her what caused her to travel back in time. Rachel pointed to the cauldron and three caskets of the failed clones of Noel Vermillion and told her that Noel and the failed copies are all human-made dolls, just like Beastkin. Rachel asked Makoto what she plans to do now that she got to look at the truth that she was never meant to find out. Makoto said she was going to Kagutsuchi to save her friends.

ChronophantasmaEdit

After hearing Tsubaki is in Ikaruga from Kokonoe, she and Noel ran right out to there.

In the finale, Makoto joins with Tsubaki Yayoi in her Zero Type Izayoi form and Bang Shishigami in the fight against Litchi Faye-Ling, Carl Clover and Relius Clover inside a hidden dungeon below Wadatsumi. The two girls gave an opportunity for Bang to activate the device on the Kushinada's Lynchpin but however the tag team of Ada and Ignis tries to prevent Bang from activating the Lynchpin. After Bang succeeded activating the Kushinada's Lynchpin then Carl, Relius and Litchi flees together.

PersonalityEdit

Makoto is a silly, friendly, generally whimsical and energetic beastkin. She also appears to be somewhat scatter-brained, though this trait belies her true aptitude as an Intelligence operative and spy for Sector Seven. She is one of Noel's best friends, though unlike Tsubaki, she harbors no jealousy towards her. She cares deeply for her friends and cannot stand when they fight each other. When she was in Military Academy, she used to be cruel, mean, selfish, and hated humans, but then had a change of heart by Tsubaki's words when she confronted her fellow female classmates who were picking on her. When she, Tsubaki, and Noel were trapped in the lower levels of Kagutsuchi, it was revealed that she just wanted to be accepted for who she is. Makoto also has a serious side when it comes to her friends, and has even confronted Hazama when she discovers what he did to Noel.

During her arcade ending in Continuum Shift, she lashes out at Hazama for calling beastkins just mere tools created simply to fight the Black Beast, showing her dislike for being discriminated. This is also revealed when Relius, during Makoto's Bad Ending, messes up with her mind, recalling painful memories of being rejected and ostracized as a beastkin.

In Chronophantasma, while she likes Kagura Mutsuki as a person, she dislikes his lecherous behavior, which includes multiple attempts to flirt with her and Noel, offering the latter drinks which are implied to be alcoholic in nature, and attempts to grab Makoto's breasts. In her special intro with Kagura, he tries to grope her, but she parries and punches him back in response.

AppearanceEdit

Makoto is a squirrel-type beastkin young lady with short brown hair, a big curly brown tail, hazel eyes, and large breasts. She wears an NOL uniform with a black balmoral cap to cover her squirrel ears, a jet black cloak, and black military boots. When she is in battle, she switches her outfit to an orange fighter top showing half of her bosom, two tonfas, black strap panties with an orange skirt-like cloth, long black stocking, and orange boots.

When she was in the Military Academy, she wore a standard school uniform, only with a darker mini skirt, black stockings, and brown shoes.

As a child, Makoto wore a short orange top that bared her midriff and short black tights, and is barefoot.[1]

In BlazBlue: Chronophantasma, Makoto does not wear her NOL uniform as her pre-battle outfit, trading it for an orange collared jacket with folden sleeves which was issued to her by Kokonoe. Kokonoe explains that the people of Ikaruga harbor hatred and resentment towards the NOL, which justifies the change in attire.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Because of her Beastkin heritage, Makoto has inhuman reflexes, as well as incredible strength, being able to make an impact crater in Carl's storyline, and her Astral Heat involves her punching an opponent skyward, leaving an imprint of her fist in the moon before it splits apart. The increased strength, however, may be the result of her tonfas, Impact, which allows her to charge the strength of her blows.

It was also stated in the anime, Alter Memory, she was specially admitted into the Military Academy for her athletic abilities.

In Arcade mode, both Λ-No.11- and ν-No.13- (also μ-No.12- in Continuum Shift) note that Makoto exhibits a surprisingly strong resistance to seithr, eroding at 0.2% of the normal rate. This may correlate with and explain her average aptitude with ars magus; even if she is adept at wielding it, she may simply not be drawing in enough to sufficiently power it.

In her storyline, Rachel states that her "unyielding will" and her strong attachment to Noel and Tsubaki are what kept her soul intact during her journey through the Boundary; likewise, Relius notes that she has a hardy soul, both focused and pointing in multiple directions, and thus was able to "leap across time and space". How this correlates with the rest of her abilities is as yet undefined.

EtymologyEdit

Makoto (誠) is a unisex Japanese name that means sincerity and honesty; two virtues that Makoto undoubtedly shows and possess'. Makoto is typically a male name, however.

Nanaya (七夜) is Japanese in origin and literally means Seven Night. Its a fairly uncommon surname and can be used as a surname in some Eastern cultures; however, Makoto's last name is found more in media than it is in real life. Literally, Makoto's name could be read as Honest Seven Nights.

TriviaEdit

  • Makoto said to Noel once that her breast size will increase if she lets a boy massage them, making her face flushed and repenting the thought of that. This also happens in a short story in one of the Official Comics, where Makoto loses her panties.
  • In the Remix Heart manga, Makoto is implied to be homosexual or bisexual due to the multiple escapades she has with Mai Natsume. These range from kissing her, fondling her and even watching her being forced to touch Cajun Faycott sexually; even when Tsubaki and Noel look away, Makoto watches avidly.
  • In the Alter Memory anime, Makoto is missing several black stripes from her tail. This error is consistent with each of her appearances in the anime.
    • In Episode 7, the black stripes from her tail are visible only during one of her appearances.
  • In the Highlander Assault mode in Chronophantasma, if Makoto uses her Big Bang Smash; Distortion against Gigant: Take-Mikazuchi, then instead of the usual large scale projection of her being shown before she attacks, the camera instead does a close-up on her.
  • Her birthday, April 2, is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day.
  • All of Makoto's special moves, Astral and Distortions have their names influenced by celestial and astronomical terms.
  • In Chronophantasma's Tutorial Mode, Makoto will teach the Beginner- Offense and Beginner- Defense classes alongside Noel Vermillion; she will also teach the Beginner- Rolling class alongside Tsubaki Yayoi.
  • Makoto's Beastkin Gene is that of a Kagutsuchi Island Squirrel.
