10 Anime Dads to (Maybe) Adore!

Happy Father’s Day! Let’s not forget some of the awesome (and maybe not-so-awesome) dads we find in anime.


1. Joichiro Yukihira (Shokugeki no Soma)

“Listen well, Soma, the secret to becoming a great chef is… meeting a woman that will make you want to give all the food you make to her.”


2. Akio Furukawa (Clannad)

                                                             “There are things a man has to protect, even it kills his pride.”


3. Soujiro Izumi (Lucky Star)

“Hey, Konota, when you clear that game, teach dad how to beat it!”


4.  Kouhei Inuzuka (Amaama to Inazuma)

“No matter what kind of girl you are, daddy still loves you.”


5.  Kamon Nandaba (FLCL) 

“Unlike a hamster, he [Naota] can take care of himself.”


6. Ryoji Fujioka (Ouran High School Host Club)

“Who do you think you are calling my daughter by her first name?!”


7. Tatsuo Kusakabe (My Neighbor Totoro) 

“Everybody, try laughing. Then whatever scares you will go away! ”


8. Kurama (Elfen Lied) 

“Mariko, not a moment has gone by since the day you were born that I haven’t been thinking of you.”


9. Ryotaro Dojima (Persona 4 The Animation)

“I’ve changed your diapers before, you know…” 


10. Daikichi Kawachi (Usagi Drop)

“It feels weird telling kids not to do everything that I did.”


Honorable Mention: Naruto Uzumaki (Boruto)

“It is hard to kill the father-son bond.”
