I never brought myself to hate Makoto. He's probably the only realistic 'harem lead' in any anime, ever. Looking back at most of the people in high school, if any of them would've been in the position of all the girls on motherfucking Earth wanting his cock, they would have probably behaved just like him, if not worse. Makoto is just an average high school student with ungodly opposite gender appeal. Hating him means hating 90% of the world's male populace (which you probably do though).
