Makoto Call! (真コール! Makoto Kōru!?) is a Japanese shōjo manga series by Kazuko Fujita. The series first appeared in July 1990 on the 15th issue of the semimonthly Shōjo Comic. It won the 37th Shogakukan Manga Award for shōjo.[1] While shōjo, the series has elements of classical sports manga like player rivalry and special attacks.

The series is about high-school student Fujisaki Makoto, a figure skater who returns from Canada to Japan. As the result of a random encounter with her new school's volleyball team, she joins the team, and with her help they are able to hold off (but still loses at the end) to high school championships favorites led by Hitomi Kanou. There begins Fujisaki's road to stardom and Barcelona.
