Over ten years prior to the events of the series, Pantyhose Taro's mother was walking through Jusenkyo when she suddenly went into labor. Luckily, Happosai and the Jusenkyo Guide were nearby and spotted her. After giving birth, Happosai washed the child, but accidentally did it in the "Spring of Drowned Yeti-riding-Bull-carrying-Crane-and-Eel" (Niuhōmanmaorennīchuan) where the Guide reveals a Yeti riding a Bull and carrying a Crane in one hand and an Eel in the other drowned 2,500 years ago and has the Spring has since become known as the most cursed one of all.
Once she recovered from giving birth, Pantyhose's mother she allowed Happosai to name the baby after he baptized it according to her village law. After three days and two nights of thought, he gave him the perfect name: "Pantyhose Taro". What ever happened to her after this is unknown. In the anime, she greatly resembles Akane, but with lighter blue hair color.
