Since its Mother's Day, thought I'd list the top 10 anime mommas. Now, since mothers in anime are kind of an endangered species, coming up with 10 is no easy order.
10. Yui: Neon Genesis Evangelion
9. Trisha: Fullmetal Alchemist
Another dead character who was a motivation for the main protagonists, Trish was the wife of one of the most deadbeat dad's ever, but also a great alchemist. So when she passed on, her sons tried bringing her back to life, which ends up causing them to spend the rest of the series looking for a way to turn their bodies back to normal from the attempt. That's some loving kids, despite being turned into hideous abominations because of it.
Sailor Moon's future self is kinda hot in her strapless evening gown. She'd be a better mother if she'd stop sending her only daughter back in time when the Earth is still being attacked by demonic aliens.
7. Misaki: Tenchi Muyo
6. Harumi: DearS
5.Nadoka: Ramna 1/2
Ranma's momma is seriously dedicated to her family. Especially since she's willing to behead both her husband and son if Ranma doesn't turn out to be a "man amoung men". Too bad he turns into a girl half the time!
4. Sakura: Hyper Police
3. Nancy: Read Or Die
2. Hild: Ah My Goddess
Urd's mother is the ruler of the underworld, and the grand poobah of all demons. Acting also as the boss for the demon Marller, she constantly tries to break up Belldandy's relationship with a wimpy college student. She is pretty much all powerful, but still tries to maintain the balance between good and evil. She's also one of the most voluptuous females in all of anime!
1.Washu: Tenchi Muyo
One of three goddess that govern the cosmos, Washu is also the most brilliant scientist in the universe. Giving birth to one of the most prominent members in the Kuramitsu family(of whom the character Mihoshi is descended), Washu also created the neferious space pirate Ryoko using her own egg cel. Washu can shift between her younger Washu-chan guise, to her adult form. But her full-fledged goddess stature is totally "hubba-hubba"!
