There are a few, just that sometimes you don't notice it. For example:

DBZ: Goku raised his son Gohan to become an excellent fighter while ChiChi raised him to become educationally inclined.

Soul Eater: What other shinigami god you know that protects the town that his son (Death the Kid) is living in with his soul essence?

Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko: Yeah I know, usually an aunt that is trying to pass off her daughter onto you and have no sense of being fully dressed around you won't win "Parent of the Year" (she spun her child around and lodged her into a wall for Christ sakes!). But you have to admit, she creatively find ways to help her daughter and nephew and because of it, everyone got along better by the end of the show.

Usagi Drop: I know, I know, this shouldn't be up here but the dude took the parent role and did a heck of a good job at it. An everyday salaryman that only knows work and doesn't have anyone living with him. All of a sudden, he finds himself taking on his grandfather's kid and trying to adapt to a life of raising a kid and the kid adapting to life with a grownup that hasn't a clue lol

There are probably more but those are the most prominent ones that came to my mind.

I'm not a DBZ fan so that was way off my radar lol. I can definitely see what you mean. When I think of Soul Eater or Usagi Drop I think of the manga. Not their anime counter-parts. I haven't watched either of them but I have seen Denpa Onna, which was a bit of strange one but I can see the Mother ties.

I kind of wish there were more though. It still feels really lackluster and small when in comes to this aspect in anime. Thanks for your pointers though ^_^.

Cheers!

Ouran High School Host Club, Haruhi's father Ranka. :D

Seriously, he's got such a sweet and loving personality and is overly protective of his daughter and she's the same with him (And everyone else).

Spot on, OP!

Other than that, I'd say Dojima from Persona 4: The Animation. That's kinda cheating though, isn't it?



Also, as a bonus:



Actually, Aki Hinata from Keroro Gunsou is pretty great, too!

Mom - Sanae Furukawa... I just don't know of a better mother than her other than Nagisa herself. She was the first person to come to mind when I read the topic. The moment she cried in After Story was just heartbreaking...

Father - This is really tough. Lots of choices... Minato... Akio... etc. but I had to side with Shirou Fujimoto... He took those 2 in and treated them as his own and how everything played out... I just couldn't pick anyone else... It was moving how things transpired in the series

Prince Phil. He loves his daughters, his kingdom, and justice.



He's always there for his daughter when she gets swatted away from a bad guy.



He even knows how to put spirits to rest by using diplomacy!



But if you're doing wrong, know that you will feel the PACIFIST CRUSH!
