    Naruto? Really?

    Naruto was an orphan and didn't know his parents at all but a few minutes, how is that an ideal parent-child relationship?

    And Naruto was a bad parent to his own children.

    If people think these are ideal relationships, then this world is in big trouble.

    What did you expect from basement otakus who wish their parents were dead?

    Guy died for his son, might not be a 'relationship' but certainly is quite something.

    Boruto is just a spin off that shouldn't exist, dunno why it is even there.

    Goku? Really? WTF?

    Best one on the list is the Izumi (Konata) family.

    I'm not a huge naruto fan but if you follow shippuden you will notice the plot goes beyond that, even though it was short the moments of naruto and his father and mother was really emotional, it showed the love of parent-child in an unconditional situation like no other.

    No Tenchi and Nobuyuki?
    Sure he was a lech and all but other than that he was a good parent.

    What the hell? There's hardly ANY relationship material b/w Minato and Naruto.

    These retards who voted never watched Neon Genesis Evangelion. Hell, even Gendo is a knight compared to the queen of bad parents, the sexy bitch mother of Kill la Kil, Ragyo.

    Are you kidding?
    Gendo set Shinji up to room with a hot chick.
    Also a giant robot.
    Then there was the submissive chick, (actually I'm pretty sure he wanted the submissive one for himself.)
    Then the Tsundre redhead.
    Then when he bombed with the chicks, he set the guy up with a boy.
    And all the while not sweating the whiny little shit; because if Gendo fucks up there isn't going to be a whiny little shit to save.

    The only one who makes no fucking sense is Goku and Gohan. Like yeah, Goku is not terrible, but he's mostly absent due to wanting to train or being fucking dead. That didn't stop Naruto's dad, though. Mofo as a zombie tried making up for lost time and even his ghost tried doing that.

    I agree piccolo is more of a father figure to Gohan than Goku.

    Agreed. Hell most fans of the show understand this for ages. Also Naruto's parents (should of included mom) are freaking amazing for the short amount of time they had with him (shit was heartbreaking though). The parts with Naruto's mom still make me tear up given regrets of both character's.

    Naruto's dad was dead his whole life and Gohan wasn't much better. Why is every poll I see on this site so god damn retarded.

    Why do you feel entitled to this poll ? this was a poll to the japanese viewers, so westerns like you can go fuck themselves if the list isn't to your liking, your highness.

    I dunno... If Naruto and Gohan can make the list, why Inuyasha's dad? at least he left him something to make his youngest son somewhat relevant

    I'm not even gonna read it. I just came here to say: Cattleya + Rana, Iori + Sei Rinko, and Amaha + Rihoko. I'm sure none of them will be on the list but theyre on mine.

    Cattleya is like the total opposite of a helicopter parent. Instead the kid is the helicopter while she goes on and takes him into dangerous situations, lol.

    Tsumugi and Kouhei deserve to be way higher on the list.
    Also glad to see Clannad knocked out of the top 3, but really? Goku and Gohan? Vegeta is a better dad than Goku. Like even if he was a dick to future Trunks he's still a much better dad than Goku

    Indeed. Can't say I ever particularly liked Piccolo, but he's even a better grandfather than Goku...

    Goku's not a great Dad because mentally he's still a child himself. When he's not fighting, he's like one big kid. It's not his fault really.

    Yeah not really his fault. If he were raised properly then he couldve turned out a lot more differently

    People who like cute things are pedophiles?

    Best get on telling just about everyone they're pedophiles then.

    On the plus side, I guess it's clearly a much better use of your time than anything else you would ever do because you demonstrably lack the brain power to do anything worthwhile.

    At least this will keep you busy.

    "cute" is one of those things that are in the eyes of the beholder, so, yes, EVERYONE likes cute things, if they think it's cute. It's basically the meaning of the word, it can't be cute to you, if you don't like it.

    It's by definition exactly what it means, if you find something cute, then you obviously like it. If you don't like it, then you don't find it cute.
