** It becomes worse after he [[spoiler:collapses after all the hardwork he has done for the Yezo High Festival and ends up in the hospital]]. They aren't ''just'' distant. Hachiken's dad doesn't have faith in what his son chose for his education. In fact, the bacon that he sent to his family? [[spoiler:He didn't approve of it.]] It's heartbreaking. And Shingo? Let's say that he is also distant from his father.

* Chapter 99: The Komaba twins' determination to succeed ''without'' the help of their brother so that '''they'll''' be the ones looking after both their mother and brother really was heart breaking, considering that they're only barely into elementary school and already mature enough to understand the hardships their family is going through and are willing to sacrifice their childhood to attain a greater good! Manly tears inevitable.

** All of the above was hinted in the Pizza Oven Arc when Yugo's middle school home teacher comes to visit him. The teacher was worried because the last time he had seen Yugo, has was the perfect picture of the overburnt student, with no life beyond studying, in total disconcert and despair when asked about life aspirations beyond that, one bad grade from snapping into {{hikikomori}}. It says something when the ''teacher'' is more concerned about the poor kid's mental wellbeing than his own family.

* It becomes apparent that Hachiken's parents are very distant. After a few ''months'' away from home, his only interaction with them is short text messages composed of one or two school-related questions. Later, Hachiken ends up lost in the woods after dark and his first thought is how Mikage's family will be mad at him for missing out on work. Even [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Ichiro]] tells him that they'll mostly be worried about him being lost in the woods after dark.

*** There's more to worry about if you think about it.. Remember that Japan has one of the highest rates of suicides committed by students because of their grades. He was worried that, at the rate Yugo was going, the poor boy would've eventually killed himself.
