Future Card Buddyfight. Mrs. Mikado, mother of the protagonist.
She’s actually, no joke, thee best anime mom I’ve ever encountered. Baddass in fighting, discipline, cooking, and being a part of her kid’s life as role model T///T
Go Naoki, I believe in you, Naoki.
We believe in you Naoki.
Don’t you dare lose next episode. You’ve always been my favourite.
Don’t you dare lose to Kourin.
I TRUST IN YOU, BABY. YOU’VE NEVER DISAPPOINTED BEFORE.
I’m not so sure. Could Kourin still be considered a love interest…when he doesn’t actually show any interest in her _(:3 7)\_ *laugh…* —- well, if it was necessity (which for a show like this, not really), you could probably give the same role to Misaki, and not only would it be seamless, it would make more sense. Misaki’s been there watching Aichi grow the entire time after all (and watching everyone else too, for the matter), as opposed to Kourin who pops up aggressively one episode to suddenly wall-banging with concern for the next, what, five). Misaki and Kourin overlap in roles so often, it’s a wonder what the writers were thinking. (Heck, I could even see more potential with Suiko…)
