Should dying really count as parental abandonment? To abandon something is to purposely leave it behind. Besides suicide and suicide related tropes, I do not see how dying dying = abandonment.
Agreed. This trope needs either a new name or some subtropes.
How do we propose a rename for this trope? A lot of examples of Parental Abandonment involve the death of one or both parents, instead of intentional abandonment.
You won't. Too many wicks and inbounds to justify a rename for such a reason. A cleanup may have a chance, but I'd say the Trope Repair Shop needs to be cleaned out first.
The trope's name does not accurately describe what the trope is about, and literal abandonment could qualify as an entirely separate trope. If there was a ever a reason to rename a trope, this would be it.
See How To Write An Example before fleshing this one out and returning it to the article: gotta have the specifics to be worth listing. We don't rely on external links being followed.
Natter be gone!
It doesn't count if she has not parents.
I just wanted to say that this article has the best header image ever. Whoever is responsible for it deserves a cookie.
Is Anime & Manga a separate page for a reason, or is it just formatting wonkiness?
