Moms often get a raw deal. For that matter so do dad's. Should be anime rule that characters have parent issues.

that said. I'm not sure about best or worst but there's a huge list of not so good.

One interpretation of Shinji's Mom, Yui Ikari, has her deliberately setting out to get swallowed by unit one in order to traumatize her son and start all the dominoes leading to third impact falling. If true I'd argue that would make Yui Ikari a monster.

The five adopted Teacher-Mom's from Happy lesson.... Hmmm Good, Bad? Insanity causing? lovable? AWESOME.

The MC's mom from Nyarko-san. Part time demon hunter. console game fanatic and expert user of the FORK. Is a pretty good mom. Even if she's absent a lot.

Ayeka and Sasami Misaki's Mom... dangerous.

hmm..

that's most of the Moms I can think of at the moment. Most anime mom's even some of the above are primarily notable for their absence.


Ooh.. one last one. The ship captain of the 'good guys' ship in Brain Powered. I think it sucked that learning her son was an agent for the other side because he had mommy issues was enough to make her suicidal. ... Personally I think a lot anime writer/creator's have it in for moms.


good list though I would add Washu who is kind of sort of maybe Ryoko's mom
and I loved Happy Lesson though the ova ending kind of ruined it for me

I forgot about Washu! how could I forget Washu!

ooh...Happy lesson OVAs no where near as good as the TV series. There was a second series as well. Where it appears that Mama-Kisaragi is an alien (as well as would be world conquering mad scientist) but gives up on return to ... wherever... in favour of continuing to be one of the MC's moms.

Kisaragi is was my favourite... But I suspect it becuase of the way I see her channeling Rei Ayanami.

Best Mom:

Irisviel from Fate/Zero

Worst Mom: I would go with Ohana's mom from Hanasaku Iroha but and isn't that bad she had some development. (But I still can''t think up the worst mom)

Why is this even a question. Rosa from umineko is by far the best mom.

Best Mom? The gal from Fate / Zero? How?....

Worst:

Mars - I don't have a picture, but ...The main character, Kira Aso's mother took back her second husband even after he admitted that he raped and molested her daughter (Kira) when she was 14, causing her great emotional pain. Kira told her mother her story, and for a while her mother was horrified and separated from her husband...But she took him back saying that Kira should forgive and move on.

X/1999 (or X) - Seishirou Sakurazuka's gorgeous mother who was strongly implied to have molested/raped her own son and was the former head of the murderous Sakurazuka clan that kept on producing sociopaths, Seishirou included. Not to mention that his mother actually admitted that her own son (Seishirou) was her "special person" and that he "loved him" more than anyone else. Of course that was the day that
At least he inherited his mother's outrageous good looks? Gotta love CLAMP!

Evangelion - Ritsuko Akagi's horrible mother, Naoko. Talk about being a b*tch! Then again, pretty much all the parents in that show are messed up really badly.

Great moms on the other hand include:

Fruits Basket - Kyoko Honda, Tohru's mom.

Sailor Moon
-


Naruto Shippuden - Naruto mom, Kushina Uzumaki.

Good moms would be any that haven't abandoned and/or abused their children. Which are actually few and far between. A few that I can remember:

Nagi no Asukara: Hikari's sister.
Kyousougiga: Koto (my favorite anime mother)
Magi: Alibaba's mother.
No. 6: Shion's mother.

Bad moms... Oh boy. From what I can remember off the top of my head:

Sankarea: Rea's stepmother.
Magi: Hakuryuu's mother.
Loveless: Ritsuka's mother.
Kill la Kill: Satsuki's mother.
Btooom: Ryouta's mother.
Usagi Drop: Rin's mother.

Best Mom:
The Koshigaya's (Koma, Natsumi, Suguru) mom from Non Non Biyori. It's exaggerated for comedic effect, but she's one of the few examples of a strict but fair parent in slice-of-life.
