When you watch a cartoon, you expect to have a good time following the adventures of a very likeable character to whom positive things happen. But some characters have really, like really, shitty lives, like the following examples.
1. Rémi in Rémi without family

He worked when he was 8 years old. His dog gets eaten by wolves. His monkey friend dies of exhaustion doing his show. And Vitalis, the man who raised and loved him, dies of cold. Good luck Remi.
2. Guts in Berserk

3. Seita in Tomb of the Fireflies
In 1945, Seita is a teenager. His father is a soldier, so I might as well tell you that he will never see him again. His mother dies because of an incendiary bomb (the Americans bomb Japan). He then takes care of his 4-year-old sister. They try to live with an aunt but are mistreated. They hide in a shelter, the little sister falls ill and dies. Seito is therefore not fishing, and also lets himself die in a train station. Ah well it’s Seito, great for morale! Awesome ! I thank you. He’s screwed, it doesn’t matter huh! Oh, you really are a dirty little prick.
4. Sophie in Les Misfortunes de Sophie

5. Sarah in Princess Sarah

6. Clementine in Clementine

7. Naruto in Naruto
