Irène Honma is Menma's and Satoshi's mother.


Despite all the time that passed ever since the death of her beloved daughter Meiko, Irène had not been able to get over the tragic loss and is so caught up in her agony, that she even puts her sadness over her son Satoshi. She began to isolate herself over the years and will rarely leave the house. Although she won't show her emotions much and will always try to keep a happy, stable personality near people, there is near to no doubt that Irène is possessed by her inner desperation and grief. Although she is treating neither her husband nor her son insensibly or cold-heartedly, she still takes everything concerning her family for granted without showing them the needed attention or care. Due to her suffering from the death of Menma, this has led Satoshi to become invisible to her.


Irène is a middle-aged woman with grey hair that reaches down to slightly above her shoulders and has blue eyes. She wears a white blueish blouse combined with a long, green pleated skirt and black slippers with grey socks.


  • "Your sister was always absentminded. She might not even know she's dead."
  • "Meiko's father didn't want me to get trapped in my memory of her, so he cleared out her room."
  • "All of you really are good friends. I'm sure Meiko would be really jealous being left out like that. You say she'd be pleased, but you're only using her as an excuse to enjoy yourselves, aren't you? Meiko's no longer here, but you all act like nothing changed. Why? You were playing with her that day as well, weren't you? Tsurumi, you read her diary, didn't you? Time stopped for her! She's the only one who remains the same as back then! Why?! Why are you all so grown up?! Why is Meiko the only one...Meiko...the only one..."
