“You can't expect everything in this world to follow your rules.”
Ms. Mikami is the mother of Teru Mikami. She appears only in a flashback of events that detail her son's childhood.
Ms. Mikami's entire face is never clearly shown. While she appears to be wearing a wedding ring, she is said to be a single mother. She also has shoulder-length black hair and is wearing a light-colored long sleeve shirt.
Ms. Mikami appears to be a caring mother and is shown to be concerned for Teru's well-being. After Teru comes home with bruises on his face, she attempts to talk him out of confronting the bullies at his school due to his frequent injuries.
Ms. Mikami understood her son's sense of justice, but told him that it would be silly to be hurt so much in order to defend others. Teru believed that she was wrong and that she was not righteous, and he eventually began to deny her very existence.
When Teru was in middle school, she died in a car accident that also killed three boys who were bullies at Teru's school. Although her son felt sorrowful for his mother's death, he dismissed it quickly and felt glad that three of his enemies are dead from the car accident.
- While her name was never revealed in the anime or manga, she was given the name "Tokie Mikami" in episode 8 of the television drama.
