Before moving to this first type of anime moms, lets take a while to talk about how many mothers we know around us who go through struggles. They face everyday tortures and yet remain steadfast and play their role as mothers. In anime too, there is a type of mother who is always struggling and suffering from torture.

She never lets her desire for revenge overpower her motherly nature, except when she has to fight for the sake of her children or family. She is not weak and stronger than people can imagine. The only reason why she suffers is because she does not want to let anything distract her from playing her motherly role.
