Kanshigumi: The Ivory Lotus
"Irasshaimase! What can I get for you today?"
In her mid-thirties, this woman works at Iyashite Kudasai. Her son, Kanjiro, also works there.
Although no one is rude enough to rub her face in it by talking about it in front of her, it is well known among the local populace that Aiko's husband left her when Kanjiro was still a toddler. The most common reason given is that he ran off with another woman. No one has heard from him since.
The two live in a room above the shop with Zoji, the elderly owner, and Kuga, Aiko's ailing mother. Kuga has not been seen downstairs in at least five years.
