Maki is a first-year student at Otonokizaka High School and comes from a wealthy family of doctors. Her family pressures her somewhat into following the same career path, but Maki is hesitant as it would mean having to give up music. Maki tries to hide her parent's wealth from the other members of μ's, but in the 10th episode of the first season of Love Live's anime, the girls all visit her parents' beach house.

Maki is considered a tsundere character, finding it difficult to express her true feelings to the people around her. She is quite stubborn and withdrawn at times and is shown as a loner in the first few episodes of the anime. However, she is a loyal friend to her fellow μ's members and will always stand up for them when they are in trouble.

Alongside Eli Ayase and Nico Yazawa, Maki is a member of μ's subunit, BiBi. The name "BiBi" is meant to symbolize the sharp and fashionable nature of the members. Due to Eli and Maki being two of the most popular characters from Love Live, BiBi has always had the highest single sales compared to the two other side-units.
