* DaddyHadAGoodReasonForAbandoningYou: Oyaji used the only way his harsh life taught him in order to defend himself and his family, pure violence, to get back at the yakuza that tried to burn his home down with him and his family inside. Killing the entire syndicate’s office managed to keep the thugs away, but it also got Oyaji a steep prison sentence, separating him from his dear family, and even when Oyaji got out many years later he tried to keep himself away, reasoning that his existence alone was a violence magnet, so to him being around his family was just putting them in danger. Oayji only goes back to his wife and kids when [[spoiler:he realizes he is going to die soon, so he will try to be the best father and husband he can before the time is up]].

* DistaffCounterpart: ''Okkan'', by the same author, is similarly about how a particular parent influenced their child's life and the sacrifices they had to make for their family in order to let them grow up as healthily as possible. ''Okkan'', however, covers a mother's love rather than a father's, and as a result is a lot less violent and more emotionally invested.



* NeverBeHurtAgain: Oyaji’s insanely abusive father was what made the boy grow into such a violent man, even if Oyaji only resorts to violence after being being on the receiving end of it himself, he can become a murder machine to make sure whoever started to mess with him and his family to be instantly incapacitated, or even killed. However, when Oyaji makes a a comeback to his family years later, [[spoiler:he actually tries to forsake violence as much as possible, making sure to let his wife and children know a man who shows real love instead of just trying to punch the problems away]].

Added DiffLines:

* BiggerIsBetterInBed: Not only is Oyaji’s member crazy huge, the author somehow tried to make the thing be as badass as Oyaji himself, by managing to make Oyaji’s wife Taeko confirm [[spoiler:she can have children after all, she lived her whole life till then believing she was infertile]].


However, Oyaji has a wife and two children under his wing, a life of violence can never end well for a man with a family to care for, thus it didn’t take long for the local yakuza to try and get back at Oyaji for never allowing himself to be pushed around by petty criminals; the thugs tried to burn his home down with him and the whole family sleeping inside at night, that of course was a terrible mistake by the yakuza, with the only fire truly ignited that night being Oyaji’s unrivaled anger.

* EverybodyCries: In one of the most emotional scenes in series, Oyaji, his wife and two children decide to sleep all in the same room, [[spoiler:Oyaji and his wife have a heart-to-heart talk where they sincerely thank each other for being their spouse, for both previously emotionally tortured people to form such a beautiful family, their children Yosuke and Kumiko silently cry while hearing their parents say this]].

Added DiffLines:

* RatedMForManly: Oyaji just exudes pure masculinity, he Is drawn purposefully as manly as possible to goad the reader into seeing how much of a badass father he is, but as the story goes the narrative wants to sell you how much his actual determination and love for his wife and children is that makes Oyaji a real man, not his appearance.

* MartialPacifist: As insanely violent as Oyaji can be, he actually never throws the first punch, he only grew to be this strong in order to protect himself and those dear to him; there’s no conflict to be had with the man if you just let him live in peace.

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguousEnding: [[spoiler:While the story makes it clear Oyaji is actually terminally ill, his impending death is never shown or alluded to, at the end Oyaji simply disappears after making sure to pass all the knowledge of life and love his wife and children needed before his time was up; all is framed as if Oyaji was a force of nature who appeared to do his job and then left when it was done]].
