Maki Yousuke is a student of Sensen Academy and the ace of Sensen High's Baseball Club since his first year.
Maki is famously known for his height, referred to as "The Giant" by many, though he doesn't clear two meters in height. His design is rather plain in comparison to others besides that. He has short dark hair with two long strands that may be sideburns against both cheeks. His nose is noticeably turned downwards, and his eyes are a grayish brown and rather thin.
Maki is shown to be very polite in speech, referring to his teammates with the -san honorific and rarely raising his voice. He also is shy to a point, very quietly accepting praise from his teammates. He carries a grudge from having never being invited to Seidou to play, seeing it as an insult to his abilities when in fact he'd been too nervous to attempt reaching out to them. Although he has a calm persona overall, the chip in his shoulder shows that he can be quite petty and childish even. He's even shown to dig at Seidou's players in his mind, becoming bitter of the freshman in the first-string roster and forgetting his teammates as he strove to take Seidou's batters down all on his own.
His fastball comes down from a high angle while it said that his curve is unprecedented in Japan because of his high release point. The lower he throws, the steeper the angle of his pitch becomes.
- Though referred to as being two meters tall in the beginning, he's actually only 195 centimeters
- His walk up song is "A Cruel Angel's Thesis", the opening song for Neon Genesis Evangelion. According to the guidebook, he respects the director of the anime greatly.
- "I knew it all along. I didn't join Seidou not because they didn't scout me. It's just ... I didn't have the guts to take the leap and join them ..."
- "Right now, I am a member of this team!"
