|Anime||Episode 2: I'm here for that warmth|
Noriko Kamomebata (鴎端のり子 Kamomebata Noriko), also known as Moka, is a character in Scum's Wish. She is also the main antagonist of the series.
She's Mugi's childhood friend and frequently refers to him as "prince".
She's not fond of her real name and dislikes having people addressing to her by it. Instead, she prefers her nickname, Moka (モカ), which is short for most cutest (最も可愛い mottomo kawaii).
Noriko is rather childish, as noted by Hanabi, saying she "doesn't know anything". She molded her character over the years, and her appearance, to match one of a princess', because her dream is to have Mugi, her childhood friend, as her prince. She likes showing off her style and enjoys being perfectly prepped; she's determined and sometimes acts spoiled and whiny - the childish part she has to her personality, but often has the intention in mind of making others happy. At times, she enters an existential crisis, as she wonders if what she's created and done for herself was worth it, and what more she needs to do to feel better about herself, revealing her deepest worries and issues.
In the anime she has golden hair usually tied back in long twin-tails with ribbons of any sort. Her eyes are light brown and she has a petite figure, often looking younger than she actually is. Noriko fancies looking like a princess to fulfill her childhood dreams with Mugi as her prince.
Noriko very much dislikes Hanabi as she feels that she is only using Mugi for her own benefits. She typically gets jealous when she sees Hanabi and Mugi together while warning Hanabi to stay away. This usually results in Hanabi showing an attitude back as she still perceives Noriko as a little child who does not know anything.
Mugi is Noriko's childhood friend and the only one in her heart. This was influenced by how, in the past, someone told her that she and Mugi looked like a "princess" and a "prince". She's been, since then, actively pursuing Mugi, making an effort to look like a princess because of that comment. Eventually, she confesses her feelings to him, and he takes advantage of that to begin a physical relationship with her. She doesn't mind being tainted by him, and encourages him to do anything he wants. However, Mugi realizes that she's too special to him to be ruined by his selfish needs; thus, their relationship ends.
