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.

Afro Samurai, Samurai X OVAs, and Trigun.

Edited to add: Berserk, and Bananafish

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)

      Hello,
      Recently I have been trying to find the name of an anime that I used to own on VHS since google has been of no help whatsoever I decided it might be best to ask in a place with people who have seen a lot of anime.
      while I dont exactly remember all the details perfectly as its been (I think) 20ish years the anime had 4 swords people  (3 who stayed together 1 who had amnesia) and 1 female warlord in the begining of the movie the amnesic one is in a village not knowing anything about himself other than he knows how to fight and he is tasked to get rid of wasps (or bees its been a long time) he kills all of them except 1 which stings him, later the other 3 find him and try to get him to remember and then the last parts I remember are the female warlord yelling "DIE HOMARU" (im 90% sure the name wasnt homaru and my mind just put that name in instead of what I heard) and then it being revealed that the warlord was a part of the swords person group and something happened that caused her to turn against them...also there might have been magic but honestly I dont remember
      also although I know im wrong the main character (With amnesia) looked like ryu  from street fighter in my memory
       
      if anyone knows the anime im talking about please reply and let me know its honestly so annoying trying to find the name of it and not being able to
      also it isnt berserk
       
      I apologize about the long run on sentence

      I just signed up honestly for some recommendations. Is there any current airing animes about the Yuri genre or slice of life or just sci-fi in general? Thanks in advance for your help✌️
