Japanese Fans Rank Anime’s Ideal Parents and Children

Look around the world of anime and like most other forms of dramatic entertainment, you’ll find plenty of dramatic and dysfunctional parent-child relationships. And while household tensions make for great storytelling, sometimes you just want to bathe in the warmth of a nice, fuzzy relationship between parents and their progeny.

That isn’t to say there isn’t any drama between the parents and kids on this list, but in the end, the love and respect the folks on this list show each other make them, in the eyes of readers of site Charapedia, anime’s “ideal parents and children.”

10. Kohei and Tsumugi Inuzuka
Sweetness and Lightning

9. Namihei and Katsuo Isono

8. Vegeta and Trunks
Dragon Ball

7. Isshin and Ichigo Kurosaki

6. Naruto and Boruto Uzumaki
