Misae Nohara

野原美冴, nee Koyama, Mitzi, Misty
The mother of the Nohara family. She is 29 years old and a typical housewife of postwar Japan she cleans launders cooks sews mothers and lazes all to varying degrees of success. While at heart a caring and nurturing individual her positive aspects are often offset by her many shortcomings. A paragon of hypocrisy after handing out irrevocable edicts to her husband and children she will not hesitate to immediately break them once they are out of sight. She administers brutal punishment to her husband son and on rare occasions her yearold daughter whenever they disobey her. While she spends as little as possible on the lessessential needs of her husband and son she loves to splurge on Himawari and herself though she is noted to have instances of great generosity. She is the source of boundless diet and savings plans all of which fail within the first week. For example she is prone to immediately partake in bargain sales when she sees them thinking she is saving the family money. However she buys in extreme quantities which defeats the purpose. Additionally she secretly hoardes money for her own personal use. Source: Wikipedia
