Hullo. I know this may seem an odd request, but I write about a child who was abused. As hard as it is, it helps doing lots of research or watching things that are about child abuse, as a writer it just opens me to new things that help boost my writing muse and gives me more insight.

I'm just curious if anyone knows any shows that deal with this theme? The only show I know is Higurashi which had a few characters dealing with abuse.

lying mii-kun and broken maa-chan:precious lies

it's only a 5 chapter manga, but it should apply well to what you're asking.

That's correct. Most of the characters in Elfen Lied were abused in some way. Also, Freezing is a very sexual action anime (since it's mostly fanservice), but

I did too. And how nobody did anything about it. Yet a lot of people overlook that and say it's a good anime just because of the fanservice.

Between the awkward comedy and the risque plot, The first season of Kodomo no Jikan had a powerful scene.

I can't remember what episode, but it was fairly early on.
