Makoto Takei (竹井 誠, Takei Makoto) is a minor character of the Fruits Basket series. He was the student council president at Kaibara Municipal High School before Yuki Sohma, and is shown to adore and love Yuki.
He is strict about the school code and would make sure that he would do whatever he takes to correct a student's wrongdoings. He tends to do everything relating to Yuki, even immediately choosing him as his successor and commenting that he would like to take back just to look at Yuki more often.
Second Year Arc
When he first appears, he yells at Hatsuharu Sohma for having two different hair colors, and despite Yuki's protests, states that it is against the school rules and it is not possible to have two natural hair colors. He continues his ranting at Momiji Sohma for wearing the girl's uniform, and when Tohru Honda attempts to help Momiji, he says that he is defending logic. By this time, Haru has turned black, and proceeds to beat up Takei, dragging him into the bathroom and presumably shows him his pubic hair.
