Yeah Takano is probably one of the worst that I can think of. You can't get much more fucked up than being forced to eat someones shit while they rape you. That is something that literally happened by the way not some sort of exaggeration. They did tone that scene down a bit in the anime though, and anything that had to be toned down in Higurashi you know had to be seriously messed up.

I kind of shake my head at some of the proposals in this thread, but I'm not going to criticize anyone for simply having limited exposure to the darker side of anime. I mean sure characters like Sasuke from Naruto had an unfortunate childhood, but I honestly consider his childhood closer to an ideal moeblob slice of life childhood when compared to some of the truly messed up childhood that some characters have had. Not to say that a less objectively messed up childhood can't be well written and have more emotional impact, such as Koutora(Koutora-san) or Switch's(Sket-dance) background, but when you step back and look at their childhood objectively they aren't so bad when compared to some of the things other anime characters had to experience as a child.

It makes me wonder if the manga will portray that scene. Actually, the arc her past is featured in is being released this month.



The art of the manga is rich and nicely defined. For example:

Yugi from Yugioh being a part of a universe where card games were necessary to do anything and having an abusive grandpa who didn't meet any of his parental needs and instead forced his grandson to wear tight leather outfits, while playing a card game :p

Ash Ketchum from Pokemon, if this theory is to be believed. I'm spoilertagging it so as to not take up an obnoxious amount of space in here (it's loooong).

Fun thread. My spoilers are kind of heavy parts of the show.

Amamiya, Yuuko from Ef - Tale of melodies. Although her "childhood" could probably be considered adolescence.

Akemi, Homura from Madoka Maica once again, probably considered adolescence.

Tsubaki Kasugano from Mirai Nikki

Setsuna Seiei from Mobile Suit Gundam 00.

And then there's your Naruto, Suzaku, and many others.
