Can you suggest an anime with an adult male MC, that had a difficult past?

Question

Okay, so, it'd be great if the MC had a difficult past and also still living a difficult life. I don't want childish characters (if that's possible) or children as MCs. 
Thank you in advance!

***I'm new to this forum, so excuse me if I've made a mistake about anything.

Some suggestions off the top of my head: Cowboy Bebop; Megalobox; Hakata  Tonkatsu Ramens. Maybe Monster (the MCs life has a lot of promise at the beginning, but that ends very quickly). I’ll also mention Welcome to the NHK, though in that case a lot of the hardship is his doing, and it’s more of a dark comedy.

Baki from Baki the grappler maybe had the hardest time growing up. Father didn't care about him at all. People don't like him cause they can't beat him in fights. All he's known his whole life is to be the best.  I can't think of any other anime character thats a harder child hood.

Akira is an assumption, but the characters are in a gang so they’re life took a wrong turn somewhere.

Baki the Grappler, but not the newer one. That one was kinda bad.

Mirai Nikki (Future Diary). He’s already bullied, and now he has to deal with Yuno Gasai. Shivers

Koe no Katachi (A Silent Voice) because both main characters are an emotional disaster.

Kids on the Slope isn’t that bad, but Kaoru’s family wasn’t that great, and some of the kids weren’t that friendly to him either, especially because he played piano.

Miss Hokusai was sad because she was always overshadowed by her dad as an artist. Even though she was amazing, she was constantly put down for her art.

Serial Experiments Lain. Lain’s friend dies, and she finds out life is a lie. Any more than that and it’s a spoiler.

Shikioriori touches on three people that all have messy lives.

91 Days and Gansta. (the latter one will most likely not continue due the studio going bankrupt - unless another studio picks it up which is pretty unlikely)

      Hellloooo! (I hope I'm putting this post in the right category!)
      Tonight, I will start watching My Hero Academia.
      I thought it would be fun if anybody else is still in the beginning of the series, that we have some place to talk about it while we are watching it? (I never used a forum before maybe thats more of a chat/discord kind of topic idk)
      Anyways, it would be fun to talk about our impressions with someone who is also experiencing MHA for the first time!

      So I've been working on a chatbot based off of Nezuko from Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. I think she's a fascinating character, and I want to give fans of the anime and manga the chance to talk to her since she doesn't talk too much on her own. Currently, I'm in the training phase so I've been programming her with questions users may or may not ask her. The only problem is I'm only one guy and I'm out of ideas of things to talk to her about, so I'm looking for community input. Keep in mind, she won't just be pre-programmed. She's going to be a mix of programmed responses and machine/deep learning based AI so she will, in essence, have a mind of her own.
      If you had the opportunity to talk to Nezuko, what would you say to her or ask her? It could be either questions or topics you'd want to discuss with her.
      Thanks!

      I think One Piece will end after the Wano Arc..especially once Luffy fights Kaido and possibly Big Mom, what do you guys think?
