Ritsuko Chigusa

Kyoko's demanding mother. One glimpse of Ritsuko, and you can see where Kyoko gets her fiery temper from. She was very dissapointed in Kyoko's decision to marry Soichiro, and did not attend their wedding or the funeral. She only began attended memorial services in hopes of convincing the Otonashi's to side with her and encourage Kyoko to remarry.
