"Makino" has been featured, meaning it was chosen as an article of interest.
Makino is a young woman with brown eyes and black hair (dark green in the anime) that goes up to just above her shoulders. When she was first introduced, ten years before the current storyline, she wore a yellow kerchief, an orange blouse with black sleeves and a long light blue skirt and orange sneakers with white soles. Although her clothing changes with her appearances, they are usually similar to the ones she was introduced with. By the time she met Ace, she wore a white blouse with no sleeves, and underneath it a pink-striped shirt.
Twenty two years ago, her appearance was the same as it is now except her bandana around her head was yellow and covered her forehead more.
Makino is a very kind woman and she was a close friend of Shanks, his crew, and Luffy. Makino appears to be a very prominent figure in Foosha Village.
Her fondness for Luffy makes her appear as an adoptive mother or adoptive sister, showing interest in and supporting whatever Luffy's dream is. She seems content with whatever lifestyle Luffy chooses so long as he is happy and amongst friends. She also gave him food under the joke about him running up a "treasure tab".
She seems to have a listener's ear and often appears alongside Woop Slap whenever he discusses Luffy's dream while the rest of the village seems too busy celebrating his success as a pirate.
Monkey D. Luffy
Makino is well acquainted with Luffy, having known him since he was a child. When Luffy left on his journey, Makino stated how much she would miss him. She has been keeping up to date with his exploits. After Ace's death, Makino was deeply upset when Dadan told her that he was suffering the most. After the timeskip, Makino was pleased to hear that Luffy returned and a short time later when his bounty had risen.
Makino is on good terms with Shanks and his crew, having them once as guests at her bar.
Makino treats Dadan as one of the regular customer at the Partys bar and often paid a visit to her house during Luffy and Ace's childhood times, often delivery imported ale and even food for Dadan's group. She also stopped Dadan from harming Garp further after the Marineford War, saying that Garp also grieved over Ace's death.
Portgas D. Ace
Wanting to thank Shanks properly, Ace turned to Makino to learn proper manners. Makino felt amused although he was quite aggravated by her response. She was also saddened over Ace's death.
Monkey D. Garp
Makino is on good terms with Garp as well as she often saw Garp disciplined Luffy and Ace at Dadan's house during his vacation. Makino defended Garp from Dadan after the Marineford War, stating that Garp also grieved over Ace's death.
Run-in with Higuma
Makino first appeared in the story serving Luffy, Shanks, and his crew at Partys Bar. She was one of the only two villagers who dared approach the bandit Higuma when he took Luffy after she ran to look for the mayor, the other being the mayor himself.
During Ace and Luffy's childhood under Curly Dadan's care, she appeared to have brought some new clothes for them and Sabo. In the background, there seemed to be several males looking at her (in a manner similar to Sanji when he meets a pretty lady) implying she was very popular in the town and seemed to spoil Luffy as she told Luffy to keep things a secret from Garp.
Later, while bringing some imported ale to the bandit's hideout, Ace asked her the proper way to make an introduction since he wanted to meet Shanks after hearing so much about him from Luffy. After Ace explained his reason to her, she just rested her head in her hand and looked at him endearingly, causing Ace to blush and asked what she was doing. She then laughed and started to answer Ace's question. Makino saw Ace leave on a small boat off the coast of Mt. Colubo.
Makino was also present at Luffy's departure from their village via a small dinghy. She stated how much she would miss him.
East Blue Saga
After Luffy received his first bounty of 30,000,000 for defeating East Blue's most fearsome pirates such as Buggy, Don Krieg, and Arlong, the newspaper report arrived in Foosha Village where Makino was working at an inn. At first, the citizens cheered that a local citizen was famous, but Woop Slap quelled the cheering, saying it was shameful.
Water 7 Saga
Post-Enies Lobby Arc
Summit War Saga
When Garp established a Marine Headquarters at Foosha Village to protect the town from the sudden rise in pirate and bandit violence after the Battle of Marineford, Makino stopped Dadan from beating Garp over the death of Ace.
She commented on how Garp was suffering from Ace's death worse than anyone. Dadan responded by saying that Luffy was the one who was suffering the most. This triggered a memory of a time with Ace and Luffy when she was commenting on Ace's rudeness. This caused her to break into tears and run off.
