Mai has shown her selflessness in several ways, like when she spoke up to protect Sakuta’s reputation during the hospitalization incident and when she gave Kaede a dress to encourage her to engage more with the outside world.

She even risked her own life to save Sakuta from a car accident and later became a heart donor for Shoko. However, Sakuta was able to return the favor and save her in the end.
