Sugihara Makoto was a student at Suzuran and a sophomore by the time Harumichi Bouya came into town. He is a member of the Ebizuka Trio with Hiromi Kirishima and Toshiaki Honjou.

His trademark accessory is his trusty pair of shades, along with a hat given to him by his girlfriend in the second half of the series [1].

Personality Edit

Mako used to be a man of few words, until he became friends with Bouya. Because of this, Mako's inner chatterbox came out and the two became fast friends, even if they ended up fighting all the time.

Mako has even accompanied Bouya more than once when the latter had to confront a whole gang of enemies by himself. This even led to a one-on-one versus Housen's Hideyuki Bitou, which was a fight that Mako won.

Regardless of Hiromi's leadership, Mako is considered the strongest of the Ebi Trio,this makes him the Harumichi Family's second strongest fighter after only Bouya himself.

It was stated by Pon that Mako likes spicy foods [2].

He claimed that he enjoys sitting alone quietly at the very back of his class, enjoying the sunlight and falling asleep while thinking about love [3].

History Edit

Ebizuka Mid Edit

Freshman Edit

Kirishima attended Ebizuka middle school along with Pon and Mako and would become friends. Kirishima considers them as his brothers and the only time he would smile the way a middle schooler is supposed to was with those two. When Kirishima started middle school, Izaki Shun was the strongest at Ebizuka and was looked up to by Kirishima. Despite being quite mellow and chilled out when he is a senior at Suzuran, Kirishima was considered a dangerous person in middle school and even shaved off his eyebrows so that none of his upper classman dare to go near him.

Sophomore Edit

Kirishima, along with Pon and Mako, would become well know around the district as the Ebizuka Trio and were the strongest at Ebizuka. Many of the middle schoolers wanted to join the Ebizuka Trio but they did not take any followers.

Senior Edit

Kirishima, along with Pon and Mako, would fight other middle schoolers from outside Ebizuka. They took out Sahara and his guys from Seta Mid and Odajima and his guys from 3rd Mid. Unknown to the Ebizuka Trio, no one fights with Odajima since he has an older brother from Suzuran that backs him. When find out about Odajima, Kirishima stated that it didn't matter what happens from now on. At this time, Kirishima considered not going to high school.

When Kirishima, Pon and Gunji arrived to help, Kirishima tells Odajima's brother that Suzuran can kiss his ass and that they aren't anything special because they are two or three years older than them. Before engaging them into a fight, Kirishima's speech caught the attention of Genjirou Katsuragi who was walking by. When Odajima's brother and the Suzuran students saw him walking by, they began to panic in fear. Katsuragi stopped and askws whats going on and lookws at Kirishima, Pon, Mako and Gunji. After looking at them, Katsuragi turns to Odajima's brother and says to him ''Odajima, what the fuck do you think you are doing fighting middle schoolers?!'' Odajima and the rest of the Suzuran students apologize and run in fear. It was the first time they met Suzuran's infamous Genjirou Katsuragi and after talking to him, he saw the appeal of Suzuran. Kirishima decides to join Pon and Mako and go to Suzuran together.

The four men teamed-up and continued to hang out with each other even after Bandou's defeat.

The Ebizuka Trio helped form the Harumichi Family to fight against T.F.O.A., and later they were surrounded by Anzai Mitsuhiko and several underling but the three of them managed to defeated them all [8]. During this era, he was claimed to be the top 5 strongest person in Suzuran excluding Bouya.
