It’s been a long time since the end of the manga he wrote and illustrated Negi Haruba, Gotoubun no Hanayome (The quintessential five), and although the author has already started a new serialization that apparently already has an anime adaptation in production, fans are still digging through his romantic comedy for new interesting details.
While Gotoubun no Hanayome He stood out for the fact that he offered not two, not three, but five for the love of the main character, causing endless wars on social networks, It seems that one of the books of the franchise’s production material decided to reveal a rather big tidbit: the design of the mother of Futaro Uesugi, the protagonist.
Little is known about “Mrs. Uesugi” both within the series and in the original manga, due to the fact that he passed away long before the events of the story began, when Futaro was six years old. However, something is confirmed by the fact that he constantly mistreated little Futaro and that he treated the lost girl on the street better than his own son. Finally, her design is very reminiscent of Rena Nakano, the mother of the Nakano quintuplets., except for the difference in hair color. In this regard, the author never explained whether this was intentional.
By the way, let’s not forget that he wears “hairstyle of death“…
