In Chapter 2, it is revealed that Maki is actually the Super High School Level Assassin (超高校級の「暗殺者」chō kōkō-kyū no "ansatsu"), her initial talent being a fabrication. She survives the killing game alongside her two fellow survivors, Shuichi Saihara and Himiko Yumeno.
Spoilers end here.


Appearance

Maki is a young woman of common height with red eyes and long, dark brown hair that she chooses to keep in pigtails, which are held by two red hair ties. She has bangs, as well as two small strands of hair that fall at the sides of her head, the one falling at her right side being a bit longer. Maki also has a beauty mark under her left eye.

She dons a scarlet-colored sailor outfit accompanied by thigh-high socks of the same color, a black plaid skirt with a slight green tint, and brown ankle boots. Her accessories include a black bracelet, small, circular earrings, a white hairpin at the side of her head and a flower pin on her right shoulder.

Personality

Maki appears to have a very serious personality, as she doesn't really seem to smile much if at all. The only notable exception is the poster which shows her with a mysterious smile, having a finger over her lips, which is a sign of secrecy.

In general, Maki dislikes people and thus she is not very cooperative. She talks very little, so when she does, she states things clearly and she appears to be very confident about her arguments. Maki also has a sharp tongue, and sometimes talks in a sarcastic manner. While not the type to assertively act on her own, she is stated to have guts.

However, Maki is also good at taking care of others and she's very popular among children despite her unsocial personality and her dislike towards children.[5]

Despite Maki's distant and unfriendly personality, it has been stated by Kaede Akamatsu that she is actually capable of deep love, something that children may have been able to see, explaining their attachment to her.

Talent

Super High School Level Caregiver

Having been raised in an orphanage, Maki is very skilled at taking care of others, as she was ordered to take care of the younger children. She is loved by many children, even though she herself doesn't like kids. Kaede has stated that the children may be attached to Maki because they could see her true soul and capability of deep love.

Spoilers start here.
In reality, Maki has no real talent in caregiving and simply chose to use that as the cover story to hide her real talent since she really did have to take care of those younger than her when she lived as an orphan.

Super High School Level Assassin

Maki's true talent is that of the Super High School Level Assassin. Trained as a child under the threat of having her orphanage be targeted if she failed, Maki developed a proficiency with multiple types of weapons and powerful strength and endurance. She is also capable of using numerous weapons without difficulty.

History

Spoilers start here.
After seeing the Remembering Light and supposedly remembering that Kokichi Oma is a part of the Remnants of Despair, Maki made use of her electric hammer that Miu Iruma made and stunned an Exisal, which she immediately commandeered to bypass the electric barrier in the Exisal hanger, where Kaito Momota was being held captive by Kokichi. She was determined to kill The Super High School Level Supreme Ruler and end the killing game once and for all.

Upon seeing Maki come in, Kokichi made a rush for the Miu's remote control that could control any electronic device, but was immediately shot in the back by Maki with a poison-tipped arrow from her crossbow, bringing him to his knees. Kokichi belittled her, asking her why a killing game that should have already ended is continuing, claiming to not know anything about the Remnants of Despair. Maki, tired of hearing Kokichi spout supposed nonsense, shot the killing blow, but Kaito intercepted it with his arm, much to her shock. She immediately left the hanger and made her way to Shuichi Saihara's Study Center to retrieve the only antidote.

When she made her way back to the hanger, she found the shutter had closed thanks to Kokichi to prevent her from coming back in again, so she went to the small bathroom window instead and tried to give Kaito the antidote through there. When she attempted to pass him the antidote however, Kokichi stole it and supposedly drank it all much Kaito's annoyance and Maki's horror since she knew he he would die of poison if he didn't get the antidote. Kokichi boasted about there being another class trial where Maki would be Kaito's killer. Maki was stunned, but Kaito reassured her that she was going to live before telling her to run away. She tried to get back in by breaking the control panel to the shutter with her knife, but to no avail.

Later, when everyone was getting ready to storm the Exisal hanger and defeat Kokichi, Maki did not have her electric hammer with her due to already having used it to commandeer an Exisal, though she kept this fact to herself and said she'd be fine with just her knife. When they opened up the hanger, everyone was horrified to discover an enormous amount of blood leaking from underneath the press machine alongside Kaito's jacket sleeve hanging out from the press, setting off the assumption that he was crushed to death. Maki was rendered silenced and came to the conclusion that she must have killed him because of her poisoned arrow.

During the class trial, Maki was very quick to deny any claims that the victim was anyone other than Kaito and even got annoyed when Shuichi would try to say otherwise. When the "surprise guest" originally showed up in the Exisal and was initially believed to be Kaito, Maki was stunned until the person inside made themselves out to be Kokichi, having brought a recording of the supposed victim being crushed by the press with them, which appeared to be Kaito.

As the trial progresses, and Shuichi reveals Maki as the third party that infiltrated the hanger, it is revealed that she was willing to sacrifice anything, including the lives of her fellow survivors, in order to defeat Kokichi. After this fact is revealed, she decides to the reveal the truth about what happened inside the hanger between Kaito and Kokichi to everyone else in the trial. Eventually, the full truth about Kokichi's plan is revealed and that even Monokuma does not know the true culprit of this case. Maki tells Shuichi that she will think correctly from now on because she herself is unable to accept that she could have killed Kaito. However, once Shuichi reveals that the only other person Kaito could have swapped with to pull off this case was Kokichi, meaning Kaito would still be alive, Maki was quick to take the blame for the crime once again due to being unable to believe that Kaito would kill someone after constantly saying that he would never kill someone. Eventually however, Shuichi is able to fully deduce Kokichi's full plan and Kaito comes out of the Exisal, revealing himself as the true culprit of this case.

Maki is initially angry, asking Kaito why he was the one who killed Kokichi after saying that killing was wrong time and time again. Kaito then proceeded to tell her and the others the full details of Kokichi's plan and why he went along with it in the first place. Once Kaito started coughing up blood however, Maki panicked. Monokuma was quick to want to execute him, but Maki refused to let him get killed regardless of whether or not he was sick. Monokuma then reveals that all five of the Monokuma Kubs have been reconstructed and are active once more, meaning that all five Exisal are once again under their control and will defend Monokuma. Maki is not phased by this, but Kaito tells her to stop, to which she responds to by tearfully telling him that he was the first person to call her "Harumaki", and the first person she ever ended up liking. Kaito apologizes to her about not being able to spend more time with her due to his condition, but reassures her that if she could like someone like him, then she could even learn to like herself. Upon hearing this, Maki breaks down in tears.

Following Kaito's execution, Maki made her way to the courtyard where they would always go to train together. She finds that Shuichi was already there, and the two shared a short, but emotional conversation, agreeing that they should be grateful to Kaito for everything he had done for them and vowed to carry on his will and end the killing once and for all. Eventually, they were joined by Tsumugi Shirogane and Himiko Yumeno, they all decided to train together. This moment however, was eventually interrupted by Ki-Bo, who had lost his "connector" to the outside world and thus; making him wanted to end the killing game for good and was determined to destroy Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles and end the killing game himself.

Chapter 6 - Farewell Danganronpa

This section contains SPOILERS . It has been hidden from view to protect users from spoiling themselves. Expand at your own risk.


Spoilers start here.
Maki along with fellow survivors Shuichi, Ki-Bo, Himiko, and Tsumugi decide to re-open Rantaro Amami's case after discovering new truths related to his murder. Once Shuichi revealed Rantaro's talent as the Super High School Level Survivor, and proved that Kaede did in fact not murder him and was executed unjustly,, Shuichi realizes that the mastermind has to be one of them and, by double-checking everyone's alibis during Rantaro's murder, hones in on Tsumugi as the true culprit and mastermind of the New Killing School Life.

Maki along with the other survivors are confused and shocked that the Super High School Level Cosplayer could have gone through with such a plan while she denies the claim vehemently. Shuichi however, makes it very clear that Tsumugi is the only person who could have murdered Rantaro by using the hidden passageway in the girls bathroom, which also led into the hidden room that connected to the library. She attempted to pin the blame on Ki-Bo since he was not present for when they interacted with Mother Monokuma, but Shuichi is quick to call her out on not giving the command of "birth" which would have trigger Mother Monokuma's voice recognition software and created another Monokuma. Maki tells Tsumugi to argue Shuichi's claims if she wants everyone to believe her, but is unable to do so. Maki along with the others watch as Tsumugi slowly breaks and re-introduces herself as "Junko Enoshima the 53rd".

Maki is quick to want to kill "Junko", thinking that it will end the killing game, but she claims that the killing game won't end with her death. Tsumugi, now cosplaying as Junko, went on to reveal that everyone's memories of being students at Hope's Peak Academy, the Gophel Plan, and shouldering their friends and families burdens as mankind's last hope, was all a false memory planted into their brains by the Remembering Light. In reality, everything they remember about attending Hope's Peak Academy and the outside world being destroyed was a lie. What they remember about Kokichi being part of the Remnants of Despair was a lie as well, stunning Maki.

In reality, the circumstances behind their killing game are far more cruel. After proving her talent fully as the Super High School Level Cosplayer by cosplaying as some characters from Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, Tsumugi revealed that everything has been broadcasted to a very peaceful world that have been enjoying watching the students of Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles kill each other, essentially revealing everything that they've been through as a reality-TV show and "Extreme Real Fiction". She also reveals that everything that took place in the Hope's Peak Academy Saga were nothing more than fictional events from a very popular anime and game franchise known as Danganronpa.

Maki, along with the other survivors, were quick to oppose Tsumugi and Monokuma, but they both revealed that the participants of the New Killing School Life are also "fictional characters", whose memory, personality, feelings, and talent were all fabricated in order to provide an exciting setting for the killing game. Tsumugi reveals herself as working for Team Danganronpa and goes a step further and shows Shuichi's, Kaede's, and Kaito's, audition videos for the killing game, showing what sort of people they were prior to participating. Upon being told that her feelings for Kaito were all fabricated, Maki seems to have an emotional breakdown and questions what everything up until now was for.

Ki-Bo however, after hearing what "the voice inside of him" has to say, reassured everyone to not lose hope. Tsumugi corrected him and says that the voice Ki-Bo hears is the voice of the people watching this killing game and that he is nothing more than an interactive communication device and camera for the viewers to interact and participate in the game themselves. Despite this however, Ki-Bo refused to give up on hope and stated that the people in the outside world don't want despair. Tsumugi meanwhile refused to give up on despair and stated that a world that enjoys killings could not possibly desire hope. In true Danganronpa fashion, they decide to settle this with one final, special vote where Ki-Bo represents hope and Tsumugi represents despair.

However, Shuichi saw through the charade and cuts in, saying that neither choice is correct and that choosing hope would do nothing but cause the killing game to continue. Because of this, he decides to stop playing along and abandons his vote, hoping to end Danganronpa once and for all, much to Tsumugi's and Monokuma's chagrin. Eventually, Shuichi convinced Maki to abandon her vote, she came to the conclusion that even if everything is fiction, that she'll believe in herself. She stated that if she couldn't do that, there would be no meaning for her existing here. She said that if she can make fiction change reality, that it then wouldn't be fiction and that it would give Kaito's life meaning, choosing to believe her feelings for him were in fact real. She resolved to use her own life as a weapon and abandoned her vote along with the others.

In a last ditch effort to keep Danganronpa going, Ki-Bo is hacked by the audience. Tsumugi is proud to show that the audience does not wish for Danganronpa to end and explains that they supposedly deleted Ki-Bo's personality that kept getting in the way. Ki-Bo is able to take brief control again and tells his fellow survivors that their choice is not the wrong one and that they can change the world before the hacking takes him over again. Maki tells Ki-Bo to hang in there, but Tsumugi tells everyone that what they're doing is pointless. Shuichi refuses to give up, still exclaiming that he will end Danganronpa and that their lives are not just show-things for their amusement. Maki encourages Shuichi and tells him that he might be able to change the world.

Confident that Shuichi's voice reached the outside world through Ki-Bo, Maki and everyone else abandoned their vote. Tsumugi however, bends the rules one last time and abandons her vote as well, which she reveals after everyone else did. Everyone is immediately confused and worried as to why she abandoned her vote as well. Tsumugi stated that if they're going to risk their lives to end Danganronpa, then she will risk her life to make it continue. Tsumugi is confident that Danganronpa will continue after abandoning her vote, meaning only Ki-Bo's vote will have any power as he is still being hacked.

When Monokuma displays the results of the final voting, Tsumugi is shocked to discover that no one had voted, proving that the audience does not want Danganronpa to continue. Tsumugi panics and tries to make everyone reconsider, but it is no use as the monitors all turn off, the audience no longer showing any interest. Upon realizing that Danganronpa was indeed over and done with, promptly loses all of her hope in living as she denied a world without Danganronpa, but she had not prepared a proper execution before hand as as such leaves it to Ki-Bo.

Maki along with her fellow survivors take cover under some rubble while Ki-Bo executed everything and blows himself up, creating an opening in the glass dome for his fellow survivors to escape.

Maki survived the final execution along with fellow survivors Shuichi and Himiko by hiding under some rubble. She is the first to come out of the rubble and take in her surroundings, Gifted Inmates Academy had been completely obliterated by Ki-Bo. The remaining survivors wondered what would become of the fictional world now, but none of them had an idea of what to do now that everything was over. Maki questioned at first why they were still alive, but Himiko and Shuichi both stated that it must have been the outside world's will that let them survive.

To Maki and Himiko's surprise however, Shuichi states that what Tsumugi said to them about the outside world may have been a lie, and that Hope's Peak Academy and the Remnants of Despair might actually exist, though he has no proof to back up this claim. He also does not think that he would willingly participate in a killing game no matter how mad of a world he was living in, but once again it is mere speculation, though Himiko states that Kaito's insight might be rubbing off on him.

Despite not really knowing what is truth and what is lie however, Maki along with her two remaining survivors resolve themselves to go out into the outside world and see the truth for themselves, and that if a lie had changed the world, then the story would not end.

Demo - Class Trial Ver.

Maki was seen in the hallway giving her short introduction to Kaede Akamatsu as the Super High School Level Caregiver. She states that even though she's unsociable and hates children, they loved her. This is somewhat become a mystery to her, speculating that maybe because she took care of them well. Kaede commented that the children could see Maki's true soul and thinking that she's actually capable of deep love.

Initially, Maki appeared to be annoyed and irritated by Kaito. Her first interaction with him started with her sarcastically pointing out that he claimed he could take down the Monokuma Cubs singlehandedly, even pushing him to attempt this when the Monokuma Cubs appeared in their Exisal form (which terrified Kaito). Kaito also angrily shouted at Maki for blaming Kaede for the conflict between the students, while Maki successfully pushes the blame onto Kaito during the first trial.

Despite this, Kaito seems to have taken an interest in Maki following the events of Chapter 1, even nicknaming her "Harumaki" to her displeasure. During the investigation of Angie and Tenko's deaths, a frightened Kaito forcefully pulls Maki into a hug (as she was, coincidentally, the person nearest to him at the time), although this only resulted in her angrily punching him.

However, Maki soon starts to show more care for Kaito during Chapter 4. She is furious when Kokichi knocks down Kaito following Gonta's execution, even going as far as to make threats, and is shocked when Kaito suddenly begins coughing blood. He also becomes one of the few people Maki will actually listen to, as shown when she attempts to strangle Kokichi in front of the other students, halting only at Kaito's request. It's shown that Maki had developed romantic feelings for Kaito over the course of the game, and it's possible that he felt the same.

In Chapter 5, the two join in the group effort to take down Kokichi, who was believed to be the mastermind at the time. When Maki attempts to kill Kokichi by shooting him with a poisoned arrow, Kaito purposely takes the hit to prevent her from doing so, and it is implied that he did so to avoid her becoming the blackened in case their theory was incorrect.

Kaito later commits the deed himself, causing Maki to persistently attempt to steer suspicion away from him during the class trial. However, she is forced to stop when he confesses to it during the class trial despite her pleas. She evens threatens to fight Monokuma and the Cubs, but is stopped by Kaito, who asks her to promise him not to cry, something that Maki couldn't bring herself to follow through on. It's heavily implied that Maki was about to confess her feelings for Kaito before his execution. This shows that Kaito had become the only one of Maki's companions who she had any genuine care for. Kaito is the only person who Maki truly cares after his death and is the only one who made Maki cried for the first time in the killing game.

Later, at the beginning of Chapter 6, Maki promises that she won't cry again and feels thankful to Kaito for saving her life. During the final class trial, when she is told that her feelings for Kaito were all just a lie and fabrication, Maki became shocked and emotionally unstable. However, with Shuichi's help, she eventually regains her composure, believing that her feelings for Kaito have always been real.

The two got along well after the events of Chapter 1. Maki approached him and Kaito and the three began a conversation. This resulted in the three doing exercises together, although Maki outmatched the two boys at everything they did. Shuichi seemed impressed with Maki's skills, and the three began to meet up occasionally to do these exercises.

After Kaito's death, Maki and Shuichi went to their normal meeting spot and had a short, but emotional conversation about the events that had transpired. They resolve to put an end to the killing game, which they end up surviving together.

During the Love Hotel Event, Shuichi had the role of a kid from the same orphanage of Maki. Maki says that despite Shuichi and her being together for 10 years, she still didn't understand him. Shuichi is confused and Maki explains that he came into the orphanage a little before he entered elementary school. Shuichi agrees absentmindedly. Maki then again says that she really doesn't know everything about Shuichi. He then asks her what makes her think she doesn't know everything about him. She then blushes and Shuichi is confused at this. Maki says that Shuichi before used to play house with the other kids and it became difficult for her. She then asks Shuichi when he wanted to make a real family with her instead of a pretend one. Maki then goes silent and Shuichi asks whats wrong. Maki then gently held Shuichi's hand and says that she knew something was strange. Maki says that she wants to create a real family with Shuichi and not a fake one. Maki then asks Shuichi to promise her that he'll stay with her. Shuichi then nods his head as his answer

Maki holds immense hatred towards Kokichi. She makes numerous threats towards him, and even attempts to literally strangle him to death twice, only to be stopped by Kaito. She wholeheartedly agrees to the plan of assassinating him in Chapter 5, and nearly shoots him in the chest with a poisonous arrow, although she ends up accidentally shooting Kaito instead. Maki realized that Kokichi wasn't the mastermind all along and regretted how she led her love interest into killing Kokichi and Maki took the blame for it.
