Japanese Fans Pick Classic Manga's Most Difficult Dads

The absentees. The rage-aholics. The trouble makers. Manga and anime have no shortage of difficult dads

The absentees. The rage-aholics. The trouble makers. Manga and anime have no shortage of difficult dads, and leading into father's day, Japanese site Goo explored the subject with a survey in which a Research Plus asked a sample of 250 male and 250 female visitors to name the character that they'd hate to have as their father. 

 

10. Daijiro Ohara (Kochikame: This is the Police Station in Front of Kameari Park in Katsushika Ward) - the long running police comedy's out-of-touch Chief Patrol Office


9. Namihei Isono (Sazae-san) - the stubborn, scolding patriarch of the classic family comedy 

 

8. Hiroshi Nohara (Crayon Shin-chan)

 

7. Hiroshi Sakura (Chibi Maruko-chan) - bit of a drinker, but generally a a nice guy

6. Yuzan Kaibara (Oishinbo) - the snobbish father/rival of the classic foodie manga's hero

5. Vegeta (Dragon Ball)

 

4. Goku (Dragon Ball)

 

3. Kankichi Ryotsu (Kochikame: This is the Police Station in Front of Kameari Park in Katsushika Ward) - The comedy police series' lazy, scheming, immature lead

 

2. Bakabon’s Papa (Tensai Bakabon) - classic comedy's trouble maker, who stole the central spot from the series' titular character and original lead.

1. Ittetsu Hoshi (Star of the Giants) - father of the 1966 baseball manga's hero - a former pro-ball player forced to retire after being injuringed in World War II. Famous for his anger, tortuous training regiments and table flipping antics
