  • She's a fan of the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters and Shinjo Tsuyoshi.
  • She believes she won't lose to any other member in her support of professional baseball.
  • She has the most amount of solo phonebooks (five) out of the 12th generation.
  • Her dream was to join Morning Musume, and become an idol like Michishige Sayumi.
  • Michishige Sayumi has said that Maria was her favorite Hello Pro Kenshuusei member.
  • Unlike other 12th generation members, she comes from a prefecture (Aichi) that already had a member before.
  • Tsunku said that she looks clever, and that if she joins Morning Musume, she could be at the front in no time.[67]
  • When she became a Morning Musume member, the first thing she wanted to do was to throw the ceremonial first pitch at a baseball game.
  • The first Morning Musume song she heard was "Seishun Collection".
  • Her Morning Musume 11th generation audition (2012) number was #153
  • If God could grant her one thing, she would wish to become a beautiful lady like Michishige Sayumi.
  • Kanazawa Tomoko has said that Maria is very funny and the most interesting part about her is that she doesn’t put on much of a character; she’s the same person on stage as she is in the dressing room.
  • She wants to try singing "Joshi Kashimashi Monogatari (2011 Dreamusu. Ver.)" by Dream Morning Musume.
  • She thinks the best things about joining Hello Pro Kenshuusei were being able to do things she wouldn't normally be able to do and learning alot, and becoming friends with Sasaki Rikako.

  • She and Haga Akane are the first members of Morning Musume to be born in the 21st century.
  • In later 2013, Tsunku commented on Makino: "Please get a better sense of the rhythm and details in dancing. You have a look that you give too often where you seem so serious, so it would be good for you to have something individualistic about your self-introduction, or a gag, or a catch-phrase so as to overcome that wall."
  • According to an interview on JUNON Magazine released in July 2014, Makino hoped on getting a pink member color.
  • She works best under pressure.[50]

  • She thinks she's a boke.
  • During a prank show, Yoshizawa Hitomi asked her and the rest of the 12th generation who their favorite senior was and while Maria said Michishige Sayumi, the rest of the 12th generation said Hitomi, and later after Hitomi and Tsuji Nozomi left the room, Maria started to cry feeling the other 12th generation members betrayed her.
  • On her blog she said that she and her family often go to Disney World in Florida.
  • She is the first member to audition three times for Morning Musume and pass on the third attempt.
  • If she could be reborn as someone else, she would be Ishikawa Rika because Makino's favorite song is "The☆Peace!" and she would like to say Ishikawa's monologue in the song.[55]
  • She believes she is the Hello! Project member who can not be beaten in loving baseball. Her favorite team until she was three years old were the local Chunichi Dragons in Nagoya, but she thought Shinjo Tsuyoshi was cool after watching him play and became a Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters fan.[55]
  • If she did not become an idol, she would like to become a wagashi artisan because she loves Japanese wagashi and has been able to experience making it during her work as an idol. When she was little, she wanted to become a Fighters Girl (a Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters cheerleader).[55]
  • Makino wears dresses everyday because she does not like denim and feels uncomfortable when she sits wearing pants. As result, she is not very good at pairing tops and bottoms. Iikubo Haruna has deliberately given her a coordinated two-piece outfit as a birthday present because she thinks a skinny and stylish look suits Makino, but she has not worn it once.[68]
  • Since 2015, she has released a photobook every year.
