Synopsis:
When it comes to Father’s Day, there are only two kinds of dads: the quick dad (he’s on his game!) and the deadbeat dad (might as well jumped off a cliff). Which anime and manga dads will get the “Greatest Dad in the World” cup?


THE QUICK/GOOD DADS

Jd: Isshin Kurosaki (Bleach)

Colton: Maes Hughes (Fullmetal Alchemist)

(Twitter) Imran Khan (@imranzomg): Fourth Hokage/Naruto, Soichiro Yagami/Death Note, but the top is definitely Mr. Koiwai from Youtsubato.


THE DEADBEAT DADS

Jd: Sakuya Ayuzawa (Kaichou wa Maid-sama)

Colton: Goku (Dragon Ball Z), Gon’s dad (Hunter x Hunter)

(Twitter) Edward Sizemore (@edsizemore) Honestly, I can’t think of great Dad. Most are pretty absentee. Yotsuba is the closest.

      Yeah, you’re right. Should’ve given him an honorable mention at least
