Makoto is an openly gay NPC in Enchanted Arms. According to the game’s official site (pictured above): “Makoto is openly gay and his friends like to call him the ‘yellow otomegokoro.’ This means roughly ‘girl’s feeling, maiden’s mind'” (Fruit Brute, 2006). Makoto is in love with Toya, one of the other main NPCs in the game. The English language voice for Makoto is much more stereotypically gay (from a Western perspective) than the Japanese version, though in both versions of the game he is very flamboyant.
