Ore no Kanojo to Osananajimi ga Shuraba Sugiru – Love is Forbidden!

Illogicalzen writes:

Parents play a curious role in anime, they are often the invisible force, beings that exist and look after the main characters but don’t necessarily have a physical, or visible role. Throughout numerous anime the main characters, often in their teens appear to live in a curious realm, the everyday, but without their parents ever making a direct appearance in the series. In some cases the absence of parents is the catalyst, or reason for certain characters actions, but in the case of Ore no Kanojo to Osananajimi ga Shuraba Sugiru or ‘OreShura’ for short, it is precisely because of the parents absence that Eita acts the way he does. His is a dysfunctional family, and arguably doesn’t necessarily exist due to his parent’s apparent dissatisfaction with their lives and willingness to leave him behind as they search for true love. The notion that parents can be so uninterested in their child that they willingly divorce and disappear never to be seen again is shocking, but unfortunately not unheard of. And the impact that it has clearly had on Eita would explain his current attitude towards love and the way he approaches life in general. (Anime, Ore no Kanojo to Osananajimi ga Shuraba Sugiru)
