We all know from watching anime that some parents can be pretty cool and likable, but as we also know, there are some that can get you so mad and make your skin crawl; the ones who do mean and vile things to their children. Here are my top 5 worst parents in anime.
5. Saki Arima(Your Lie in April)
Saki was a famous musician, who was struck with an sudden illness. She began to live her career through her son, ” Kousei Arima” due to the fact that she could no longer play. She made him go through extraneous practice sessions, and would beat him if he made a mistake. This scared Kousei so much that when she died, he could no longer hear music and couldn’t play the piano without freaking out.
4. Sakuya Watanuki’s Parents(Servamp)
When Sakuya was young his parents drove his older sister into depression and forced her to commit suicide, just so they could collect the insurance money. Unfortunately for Sakuya he witnessed what happened to his sister, and when the authorities arrived his parents forced him to lie to cover it up. Before Sakuya’s sister died, she made her parents promise not to hurt Sakuya. Even though they promised, Sakuya later met the same fate as his sister.

3. Charles Brittania (Code Geass)
An egotistical person who relished in watching his children as social experiments. So much so that he set them up in high positions just to see what they were capable of. Charles was so twisted that he set out to destroy the collective consciousness of humanity, so that people would no longer be capable of deceit. What makes matters worse is he hated people who are deceitful. He believed that telling the truth and being a person who respected other people would go against the fabric of the way life works.
Gambino is Gut’s (The Protagonist) adoptive father, who blamed him for his lovers death. He blamed Guts so much that he would beat him along with making him fend for himself at the age of six. To make matters worse, he would later sell Guts as a prostitute to make money.
1. Shou Tucker(Full Metal Alchemist)
Probably the most deranged character ever, Shou Tucker was a scientist so obsessed with his experiments, that he took his young daughter and combined her with the family dog into an chimera, all in the name of science. Who can forget the phrase that sends chills down your spine: “Hello Brother Ed”.
