It's surprisingly common to find anime parents who are absolutely terrible at parenting. Sometimes the parental figures are dead, or just off on permanent overseas business trips. That said, there are some parents in our favorite anime shows who are just plain amazing.

Parenting is no easy job, but these great moms and dads make it look easier than spotting the protagonist in an anime classroom. Some of them make huge sacrifices for their kids, while others are simply rocking the day to day grind of child-rearing. Good parents in anime are rare, so it's worth getting to know the ones who do exist.
