I was watching evangelion and I got to admit. I feel real sorry for Shinji. His life is so messed up. Of all the animes I have seen I think he has the worst childhood. Anyine think theres someone out there that has it worst?

I haven't seen Evangelion, but the one I've seen so far is from a manwha.
Main kid had it hard, but when we see the other children, we can see that everyone's having it pretty hard. Death everywhere, war, hunger, violence, discrimination, sickness, revenge after revenge, underaged assassins, torture, etc. It's like, a default setting when you're born in that world. That's war for ya.

In Elfen Lied the poor nyu hated humans because they made her life a little hell, killing everyone she loved and she had no friends in her past. t.t

Shiki Tohno from Shingetsutan Tsukihime..
He was stabbed by his own father (I think... I haven't finished the anime)

Shinji's also kinda sad but he doesn't care much about his life anyways

I think remi was the one with the worst one, i mean, he lost mother, gramps, dogs, monkey, practically everything; i can't remember a single episode that didn't have a crying scene

hmm.. I think Kenshin had a bad childhood too.
His aunts got slaughtered in front of him. He faced so much killings to people close to him. But at least Hiko raised him. So probably Kenshin hasn't that bad a childhood.

i think nyu is worst out of them all.
she was abandon, betrayed, and cause of a misunderstanding she killed the family of the only person who care about her.
also she grew up in a confine coffin like thing...

then again there's also nana, but she's too innocent, so she didn't suffer as much as it look like

Yeah, I'll go with Evangelion. Hell, pretty much all the characters from that have messed up childhoods (but if I had to pick just one character from that anime I'd go with Asuka). Also Kamui from X, possibly other characters also from that anime. And others, of which I really can't think of right now. I think I just like angsty characters too much.

Ye gaara to me tops the bill. I mean from the moment of his existence he was cursed as a monster, everyone hated and feared him because of what he had inside him .Even his "mother" cursed him because he caused her so much pain. The only person who cared for Gaara tried to assassinate him after being ordered to do so by Gaaras father! .Plus the amount of rejection and betrayal is enough to send anyone mad. Naruto almost went down that road, luckily he was saved .

Quote by vatican92Shiki Tohno from Shingetsutan Tsukihime..
He was stabbed by his own father (I think... I haven't finished the anime)

Seconded.

And I'll add Soushi Minazuki from Fafner (

Spoiler (show)

he got assimilated when he was a child

). He got that scar from Kazuki during his childhood days. (forgot how it happened, still on vol. 4 of the series)

According to my calculations, your problem doesn't exist.

Oh, and mostly anti-celeb/anti-Hollywood/anti-commercial since 1978

I'll second Shinji from Evangelion and Kamui from X... They had to go through some pretty messed up stuff in their lives so far...

I don't know about anybody here but I think Edward from FMA. After all he did lose his whole family momentarily. Then has to put up with Roy all the time. Then a wrench to the head every time he sees winry. To top things off almost everybody in that series wants to kill him (besides the military and his close friends).

Oh yeah! I almost forgot about that automail of his. Think of having your nerves rejoined every time something happens to the automail.

Now that I think about it, and read a few of your reply, I couldn't agree more with elbalde. Each of the episodes have at least a little crying scene... It's just so sad to see a child growing up in a cruel way like that in a peaceful world. Thrown away by his parents (for a good reason fortunately), growing up in a little animal circus group that goes around the country, and he even lost his only mentor (and yes, he also lost his best animal attraction and friend, a monkey). But all this for the better part of his life. Fortunately a boy his age joined, and they travel together ever since. First to find Remi's mother, then to travel the world doing what they do best: performing circus attraction.

I believe I've never seen animes like this again ever since. 8)

Probally Enishi Yukishiro from Rurouni Kenshin. Coz it must've been painful for him to see his sister die in Kenshin's hand and filled with all that pain, he was also attacked by diseases and almost died many times. Not to mention it was during the Boshin War... Yup, I can guess it's most probally Enishi

I would say Nyu from Elfen Lied. I sure as heck would be traumatized and forced to kill people if they tormented me like that. :|

I'm not sure about the worse, but some people who have it bad are:

Kaoru from Ai Yori Aoshi.
& definately all the eva children,
they've all got it bad..

and maybe Yuki & Kyo from Furuba.
Shinn Asuka from Gundam SEED Destiny.
