|Rōmaji||Sawa no haha|
|Children||Sawa Mitoma (Daughter)|
|Manga||Another Chapter 8|
She is the mother of Sawa Mitoma. Sawa mentions that her mother occasionally disappears without a word, leaving Sawa with no way to contact her. This often leads to complaints from the landlords since Sawa's mother does not pay the rent in time.
She is a fair-skinned and youthful woman with a pair of light-colored eyes and long eyelashes. She has upper-back-length, light-colored, wavy hair with bangs framing her face.
Although she appears as a kind, smiley woman, Sawa's mother is emotionally and verbally abusive towards her. She is very self-centered and says she does everything for Sawa's sake, though she is clearly very terrible towards her. She often degrades her daughter, telling her she does not have the common sense to choose a "normal" outfit, that she is always in the wrong, and that she finds it surprising that her daughter made some friends since everyone apparently "hates her so much". She hates it when Sawa blames her actions on her, and feels like Sawa needs to be indebted to her since she is her mother.
She appears in many of Sawa's nightmares and flashbacks, and some brief panels, though her official debut is in Another Chapter 8. Sawa wishes her mother wasn't around.
