Ume Aihara (藍原 梅 Aihara Ume?),[1] née Okogi (小此木?),[2] is Yuzu's mother and Mei's stepmother. She is currently married with Shō Aihara.


She is a tall adult woman with neck-length black hair styled in swept bangs. She has somewhat similar facial features to her daughter Yuzu.


Despite her age and the fact she's a mother, she's childish, playful and immature, going as far as calling her husband a "tsundere",[3] and mocking Yuzu after she dyes her hair black despite being the one to tell her to.[4] She shows a more mature side sometimes, however.[5] Like Yuzu, she enjoys fashion and shopping.[citation needed]



  • According to herself, when she was younger, she looked just like Yuzu after she put on a black wig.[4]
  • As shown in chapter 17, she drinks beer.[5]


  • "Ume" (?) literally means "plum".
  • "Aihara" (藍原?) means "indigo field".
  • "Okogi" (小此木?) is formed by the combination of the kanjis 小 ( lit. small?), 此 (lit. here?) and 木 (lit. tree?). Thus, it can be interpreted to mean "this small tree".
