What are some terrible anime/manga families?

The Sohma family from Fruits Basket had it all

Physical abuse
Psychological abuse
Child abandonment
Rivalries
Envy
Some incest

Shinji and Gendou Hikari. Also Yui Ikari from Evangelion.
And don't even start me on Asuka's family situation in the anime (I've recently heard it's even weirder in the manga).

The first thing you learn about Shinji is that he's been living with his teacher for unknown reasons despite the fact that his father is clearly financially well off to hire a nanny or something after Shinji's mother dies. Then he moves back to the city where his father lives and... moves in with one of his father's employees? And that just scratches the surface, because the rest goes into spoilers.

I do admit that Momiji's backstory in Fruits Basket was depressing, but the family relationships in Evangelion were so sad that I couldn't even cry about it.

Gasai Yuno had a pretty horrible family life, before she killed her parents.

I can't even say I blame her. It was that bad.

It was pretty bad...


Also searching for "Yuno cage" of course gave me this wonderful result-
I dont know what I expected.

Yeah, I mean, say what you want about their parenting style but they have a system--and it works (except when you have to lock your possessed youngest up forever and your favorite son goes rogue and stabs you).

Well, it mostly works.

The Monogatari series has a couple of pretty screwed up ones, particularly the Senjogaharas (adultery; giving away the family's wealth to a cult; giving your daughter to the cult to be raped) and the Tsubasas (essentially child abuse and severe neglect).

Then you have Nanako's family from Myself; Yourself (abuse, adultery, murder)

Or Kotoura's family from Kotoura-san (adultery, alcoholism, abuse, abandonment)
