Motherlove is incomparable; she gave it when Satoru was a kid or adult.

I love to watch Banana Fish again and again, also Jessica Randy. She played the character of a journalist. Despite Sachiko (as mentioned above), she is never afraid to speak up against her enemies.

Love to watch and talk about a warrior mom; Mikoto is one of them. She didn’t meet the same heights as her sons Sasuke and Itachi reached but reached the rank of Jonin, which was helpful to help her son with shuriken training.

You can give the title of a gentle and loving mother who always has a smile on her face – yeah, she is Sanae Furukawa. She is the wife of Akio Furukawa and the mother of Nagisa Furukawa.
When someone insults her bread, she becomes childish, but keep in mind, that she becomes strong when needed. She appeared in both “Clanned” and “Clanned: After the story,” but I actually think she appears in “After Story” as one of the best anime moms.
22. Tomoko Higashikata (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure)

When anyone talks about Emi Handa, everyone smiles and just loves anime. She is very beautiful, and the other reason is her sweet appearance and emotional personality in anime. She stops doing work as a calligrapher after having a son (Seishuu Handa).
Like other mothers, she is a doted, overbearing and overprotective mom. The funny thing about Emi is that she punches those people who have angered her, and her punches aren’t very strong.

Trisha Elric is a beautiful anime young woman, a mother of two children Edward Elric, and Alphonse Elric. She is a kind and loving woman who too much cared about her children and husband, Van Hohenheim.

Momoko later married her fiancé’s best friend, Hideki Shigeno, who he took care of Goro with her two biological children. That’s why I consider her the best mom among anime characters.
37. Mito Freecss (Hunter X Hunter)
Mito Freecss plays one of the best mother roles in the Hunter X Hunter series. She is the foster mother who has become a guardian for Gon Freecss since he was 2 years old, that’s why the anime world rates Mito much.
As Gon’s life goes on, she tells that her parents died in an accident but reveals the truth soon that her mother is unknown and his father Ging Freecess becomes a hunter who left him in her care.
