    Anime Showdown - #13 Best Parent




    Anime Showdown!
    Where Characters And Whole Shows Battle For Ultimate Glory


    Welcome to the 13th edition of the Anime Showdown. This is where your beloved animated characters will fight for the ultimate glory... No matter how unique, strong, cute or beautiful... Everyone is the same in front of your eyes!

    Let's start the 13th showdown. The Best Parent edition!





    With their strong love towards their children, we all know how touching the story of a parent can be. But as in all other things, there are less exemplary, yet more realistic parental care examples, as well.

    Now, which will be your favourite? Share your favourite anime parent with us and show your appreciation of them to MangaHelpers family!

    Here are the nomination rules:

    - Any member of MangaHelpers can nominate one anime parent for this showdown by posting in this thread and explaining why said parent should participate in the showdown. Please add pictures or videos to further support your nomination!

    - The nomination period will close once a fixed amount of time has passed. The showdown will then begin right away.

    The voting rules:

    - You can only vote for 1 character, so choose wisely.

    - The voting will be done by voting in a poll.

    - We’ll have 2 rounds, the first round will last 72 hours, so the voting period will be of 72 hours and the final round will last 72 hour too.

    - If the amount of nominations reaches a certain number, we will divide them into groups. Each group will have its own voting period.

    - Only the 3 characters with the most votes will make it to the final round until finally one will be crowned as the absolute winner of the showdown. In case of a tie, we’ll have another round to break the tie. [Also applies to the group stage.]

    - If only 3 characters are nominated after the nomination period has passed, we will start with the final round right away.

    - As soon as the first round has ended, it will be closed. After that I will reveal / count the votes and then I'll start the final round with the characters that have proceeded.

    - You’re more than welcome to discuss the characters and what makes them unique, thus participating in the showdown more actively.

    -Please don’t bash the character a member nominates nor bash the person who nominates him/her. This is for fun! <3~

    - And please remember, the forum rules also apply to this thread.

    - Rules will be edited as necessary.

    End of the Nomination period: May 12, 10pm CET.

    I nominate Edward Newgate, aka Whitebeard(One Piece)

    Daikichi is not a parent, but maybe we can allow him to participate since he's Rin's guardian. I'm not so sure myself, to be frank.

    Never mind, ladylola's nomination also seems to be along that line, so, l don't think there should be any problems with this one, either.

    If we're going to follow the strict and traditional definition of a parent, as in the biological parent, then no WB isn't one. I explained why I think he counts as one, he loves his sons, and they see him as a father, the only father they would have prolly known. Even Ace despises his real father, and only thinks of WB as one.It goes without saying that just like in real world being the biological parent doesn't guarantee that you'd make a good parent. In fact they often end up being shitty, and people usually see the person who raises them and nurtures them with their love as their true parent.
    If adoptive fathers or father figures aren't ok then by all means feel free to remove my nomination.

    Personally, I have no problems with the way we have gone so far. Other members seem to have reacted positively, as well, so, I don't think I'll disallow nominations for non-biological parents after this stage (=

    Green Grin Re: Anime Showdown - #13 Best Parent

    I would nominate Bellmere from One Piece, mother of Nami and Nojiko. She was more than a mother who loved her children unconditionally to the extend of sacrificing her life for them. It was so sad that she was killed by Arlong. Before she died, she told the girls "I love you."

    I would include Genzo in Bellmere's parenting if it's allowed, as this gentleman plays an important role and is a part of Nami and Nojiko's life. He is like a father figure to the two girls.

    Spoiler show


    Sometimes, an adoptive parent may even be a better parent than the biological one.

    ^ Megami-sama, we are allowing one nomination per member, so, I'm assuming it's going to be Bellmere in your case (=
