Mother Mabuchi (加算馬渕) is Kou Tanaka and Yoichi Tanaka's mother and the ex-wife of Father Tanaka. She is a minor character.


Mother Mabuchi has short brown hair with side bangs, along with brown eyes. She is usually shown smiling.

After she and Father Tanaka divorced, she and Kou moved to Nagasaki with Yoichi in college. She is seen in the hospital due to her terminal illness and lung cancer, which made Kou feel helpless and alone all the time. Before that, she also mentioned that she always treasures the moments they eat and watch television together. Upon returning home, he realizes how difficult it was to take care of her rather than spending most of his time studying for a good school and company, yet he is desperately aiming for that one goal. When he hears a voice message from Yoichi saying that he got a call from their mother, he remembers the day when his brother wished him luck with her. With all that from the past is wrong (or a lie), Kou cries out feeling so sorry for her. Mother Mabuchi finally passed away from all the cancer spreading to her bones.


Before her death, Mother Mabuchi was a carefree, old woman who was always happy and loving for her family and treasured the moments in life.


Kou Mabuchi[]

Mabuchi is Kou's late mother. It appears that she loves her sons equally, but spends more time with Kou due to Yoichi going away for college. He is the only one between her sons that took her last name after her death.
