Makoto Sakurai is Izumi Sakurai's younger brother who joined the Igo-Soccer Club during the 2nd half of Nichijou. He is also the one that informed Kenzaburou Daiku that Igo-Soccer is actually a sport and that he was his junior high's MVP.


Makoto has short, light-brown hair. He is almost always seen with his eyes as slits; his open eyes have only been seen very briefly while he was demonstrating igo-soccer to the igo-soccer club. He wears a white buttoned shirt, black pants, and a pair of white and blue sneakers. He shares this outfit with Daiku and Ogi.


Unlike his sister Izumi, Makoto is much more forward and self-aware of his surroundings. He is quick to lose his temper when annoyed and is not above using blackmail to get what he wants, though he is not particularly malicious. When flustered or frightened, however, he exhibits traits similar to Izumi, such as excessive stammering, sweating and blushing.
