She is the mother of Kisa Sohma.


She is a fair-skinned woman in her middle age with straight, free-falling dark brown hair with bangs covering her forehead, and a pair of tired, but calm light brown eyes.


She is an overprotective mother towards Kisa. During her first appearance, she appears to be extremely distressed, tired, and on her final straw, as she expressed how she couldn't take her situation with Kisa anymore. However, she was brought back to her senses by Tohru Honda. After putting a distance from her daughter for a few days, she was able to 'recover' and is shown to be a loving mother who cares greatly about Kisa and gently watches over her.[1][2]

Story Overview[]

Second Year Arc[]

S1E18-2019 (111)

Tohru talking with Kisa's mother.

After Shigure Sohma called her and informed her about how Kisa had run away from home once again, she confronts Kisa in her Tiger form. She asks her why she had run away from home, stopped going to school, and why she hadn't told her that she was being bullied. She expressed how she couldn't deal with her anymore, but Tohru Honda brings her thoughts into the conversation and emphasizes with both of their situations. It brings both Kisa and her mother to tears.[1]

S1E20-2019 (27)

Kisa's mother informs Hiro about Kisa's wellbeing.

Mother and daughter then spend a few days apart from each other so they patiently can resolve their respective issues and 'recover'. When Kisa was staying at Shigure's house, she called Tohru and wondered if Kisa was eating enough, informing Tohru that Kisa doesn't love dry food but loves eggs with chives.[2]

A few weeks later, she is happily seen informing Hiro Sohma that Kisa is having a sleepover at Shigure's House and that Kisa is smitten with Tohru.[3]


Kisa Sohma[]

Initially, she is seen as a very overprotective mother who had gotten tired of dealing with Kisa.[1] However, after putting a distance between for a while, it is demonstrated that she is a loving mother who cares about Kisa.[2] She is happy that Kisa has such a great support system and that she has been happier lately. [3]

Hiro Sohma[]

She seems to have a rather friendly relationship with Hiro, as he is comfortable enough to spend time with her without Kisa's presence.[3]


  • She shares her English voice actress with Mitsuru and Tohru's Aunt, both in the 2001 Anime.
  • Her name is never mentioned.
  • She is also one of the few Sohma parents who wholly accept their "cursed" child.
