Gohan, Goten, Bulma, Trunks, Pan, Maron. That covers all the Dragon Ball characters.

5 minutes of thinking... Well shit...


Not really. Goku's parents died, Vegeta's parents died, Krillin parents' are unknown, Chi-Chi's mother died, Tien's parents are unknown, Videl's mother died, and we know nothing about Maron's family tree.


I doesn't apply to all the characters, thats why I listed the ones it does apply to. Also, Maron's mom in 18 and her dad is Krillin.

I don't know what the actual state of Japanese parental involvement in high school sporting activities, but for the anime you probably don't need to look any further than laziness/budgeting constraints. If you put parents on camera, that means coming up with unique character models for them, hiring voice actors, etc.--and none of those can be stand-in, because it needs to be consistent, should the same parent appear in both episode 2 and episode 20.

If that were typically the reason, we would see a lot of anime based on manga or light novels where the parent(s) were present in the original anime, but not the anime.

With manga, you have a similar set of constraints--page and frame limits are very tight, you can only fit so many characters into a frame, you only have so much space to introduce new characters, etc.

And with LNs, there are fewer constraints... and there are sometimes parents--and other characters--that appear who are off camera in the anime: Banri's father in Golden Time, for example.

That's Marron. Maron was Krillin's ex in the Garlic Jr. Saga.

Its not unusual for a character's parents to be alive and together. Its unusual for them to actually be in the country and not on a business trip, second honey moon, vacation, etc and inexplicably leaving their kid to live completely on their own. Or sending their kid to the Big City(tm) to live by themselves.

All of which are apparently both legal and commonplace in Japan if anime is any indication. -.-

I was gonna say Nagisa, protably two of my favourite characters to, they work so well together and offer some good comic relief.

Touma Kamijyou from A Certain Magical Index (both his parents were introduced together during the Angel Fall arc), Sakura Haruno in Naruto, Yu Narukami from Persona 4 (a video game that got an anime adaption so I'm pretty sure it counts), Sin Kiske from the Guilty Gear franchise (not actually an anime and his parents aren't officially married yet so I'm not sure if it counts), Judai/Jaden Yuki from Yu-Gi-Oh GX (he's currently the only main protagonist of any Yu-Gi-Oh series who's parents aren't dead, missing, or status unknown), Satoshi/Ash Ketchum from Pokemon (even though his father has yet to be introduced), Noel Vermillion from Blazblue (technically her adoptive parents but I think it still counts).

Those are just from the top of my head.

Yeah those two are some of my favorites. I could probably go on to say Madoka Kaname from Madoka Magica, Chisaki and Manaka from Nagi No Asukara, Batman (just kidding) and Tomoki Sakurai from Heaven's Lost Property even though you don't get to see them.

Yasaka Mahiro from Nyaruko-San.

Although only his mother is actually seen. It's mentioned his parents were on their 17th honeymoon during the first few episodes.
