-Blood Dupre (Heart no Kuni no Alice: Wonderful Wonder World)

"Happy? It's not as perfect as when you were with me."
-Takahashi Nanami (Bokura ga Ita)

Yano Motoharu: "Shall we hold hands? Shall we make memories?"
Takahashi Nanami: "You say some pretty brutal things, don't you?"

-Kiba (Wolf's Rain)

"No one who fights as a warrior would be so selfish as to demand that you save her life when you've already saved her as a human being."
-Deneve (Claymore)

"Pay attention, you brats! This is crucial knowledge for History! Even so, this isn't necessary for you to have a normal life. But knowing this material will give you a slight advantage. Knowledge works as such."
-Mr. Rascal (Akazukin Chacha OVA)

"What's wrong with change? That's our Fairy Tail! We ain't a living corpse like you! We live our lives by putting everything on the line, bastard! If you don't have the courage to change, then just stop right there!"
-Natsu Dragneel (Fairy Tail)

"Sorry, but it seems I can't accept your request. Brad knows about love. That's enough for him to live on as a human. I only get rid of devils."
-Dante (Devil May Cry)

"Basically, people with something to protect are strong."
-Yasuri Shichika (Katanagatari)

-Maniwa Kawauso (Katanagatari)

"I was never qualified to hold you."
-Togame (Katanagatari)

"This is what you've done to Takahashi. You've abandoned her, in the same way that I threw away that expensive ring [into the ocean]. Can you not see... that Takahashi is drowning?"
-Takeuchi Masafumi (Bokura ga Ita)

"Someone you love, someone that wants to be near you... If they have someone like that, a person would think, 'I'm glad I was born.'"
-Sakura Mikan (Gakuen Alice)

"I should've wished for my breasts to grow bigger. Why did I wish for world peace?!"
-Bessho Koyoi (Hatsukoi Limited)

"One who ignores trifling matters will achieve nothing grand."
-Takeda Shingen (Sengoku Basara)

"The things you hold dear may be your weakness. But they are the things which make people truly strong!"
-Maeda Keiji (Sengoku Basara II)

"To worship a feral monkey drunk with power is the pinnacle of folly!"
-Oda Nobunaga (Sengoku Basara: The Last Party)

"She could have followed him back then. Still, instead of being happy as a woman, she chose her pride. So she wants to make it as a musician and be better than Ren and Trapnest one day."
-Terashima Nobuo (Nana)

"Because he hates vegetables and only eats instant food, he has an exceedingly ghastly face that looks like it came from the dark side of the moon."
-Watashi (Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei)

"It's inexcusable to momentarily lust after someone just because you're lonely!"
-Watashi (Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei)

"At that point her expression, which was like some European fortress city, relaxed into a smile, and that smile has made an impression that has never left my mind. In short, frankly, to put it plainly, honestly, saying it without any reservation, at that moment... I fell head over heels for her."
-Watashi (Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei)

"All it takes is some shifty information or a convenient rumor, and the careless masses will change their opinions just because they can."
-Morimi Saki (Higashi no Eden)

"People are funny. Even a five-year-old knows how to spend money, but there's plenty of adults who don't know how to earn it. They feel better handing over money than bowing their head and taking it. They go on and on about how the customer's always right, always the winner, but isn't that supposed to be how the seller feels, not them? If everyone's spending, who's left to provide the service? I think a society where people prefer earning to spending is a healthier one."
-Takizawa Akira (Higashi no Eden: Gekijouban II Paradise Lost)

"My hands are so small. If I am given this much happiness, it's going to overflow."
-Juliet Fiammata Asto Capulet (Romeo x Juliet)

"Go beyond the impossible and kick reason to the curb!"
-Kamina (Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann)

"Say, Simon... do you know why people have eyes in front? It's to see the vast landscape, and to move forward. If we had eyes in the back, we'd only see ourselves leaving our birthplace. That way, people wouldn't be able to move forward. Our eyes are at the front so that when we walk, the distant landscape draws closer. That's why people can move forward."
-Kamina (Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann)

"Listen, Simon. Don't forget... believe in yourself. Not in you who believes in me. Not in me who believes in you. Believe in you... who believes in yourself!"
-Kamina (Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann)

"Whether you were planning to be witty, or whether it was for your protection... that's the limit of someone shitty like you. Your lack of resolve that is necessary at the very end, that's the large wall that separates a number one and a number two."
-Cassandra (Claymore)

"As long as I'm with you, I can become the president! Become king, become queen, we can even become jokers!"
-Isaac Dian (Baccano!)

"Two people in love can be together. Isn't that wonderful? That's an option I don't have, no matter how hard I try. You just have to want it!"
-Tanigawa Kanna (Ano Natsu de Matteru)

"Not to brag, but I have never done homework once in my life!"
-Oga Tatsumi (Beelzebub)

"Strength is love! And sometimes croquettes!"

"In Cephiro, one's will rules over all. The heart which believes becomes power."
-Clef (Magic Knight Rayearth)

"I don't need to use chocolates to show off my planet-sized love!"
-Kagura (Gintama')

"Women aren't going to follow the script like in a game. The hottest girl around will still fart and poop. Eventually she'll age and become an ugly manager. If you love someone, that means you're ready to accept that. Love is the resolve to create an illusion that accepts this reality."
-Sakata Gintoki (Gintama')

These days, even babies are born with cellphones dangling from their umbilical cords!
-Kagura (Gintama')

"Don't treat somebody's first love like a mistake!"
-Tsukahara Kaname (Kimi to Boku.)

"My evening with you unfolds before my eyes. Blindingly bright and overwhelmingly happy. And somewhere deep inside, really frustrating. I'm so happy I could cry. So happy I could smile. I'm happy that I love you."
-Tachibana Chizuru (Kimi to Boku. 2)

"Kaname, you won't cry. Your heart isn't pure enough."
-Asaba Yuuki (Kimi to Boku. 2)

"Make hard choices? But it must be easy for you. You don't decide by emotions, but by following your cause, right? If it doesn't prick your conscience, anyone could easily make those choices."
-Michelle Lobster (Fairy Tail)

"I can't stand watching your receding figure anymore."
-Miura Kento (Kimi ni Todoke)

"I finally caught the awkward you."
-Miura Kento (Kimi ni Todoke)

"If I'm going to get hurt, I would want it to be with Arima first."
-Miyazawa Yukino (Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou)

"Studying is important, but I think a day in high school is far more precious than a month is in adulthood."
-Miyazawa Hiroyuki (Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou)

"You lose your emotional balance, so it's 'falling in love,' right? It isn't the real thing if you can act cool and get by on your own. That means your own feelings are more important to you than his. You've met a person who could make you lose your emotional balance. That's why they say he has 'stolen your heart.'"
-Izawa Maho (Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou)

"All I wanted was for you to know I was there."
-Tonami Takefumi (Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou)

"I... have powers of concentration! I haven't done it in a while, so it's pretty tiring. "
- Fujisaki "Bossun" Yusuke

"Miracles aren't meant to be wished for, they're meant to be created by our own power."
-Miria (Claymore)

"Burn it into your eyes. This is our body, and this is Clare's body. And then, when you see that form of Clare's, if you can accept her like that, I want you to hug her with all your might."
-Deneve (Claymore)

"Sometimes more, sometimes less, whether we wish for it or not, our path changes with every person we meet. The fact that we've met, and even the time that we've spent together so far, do you declare them completely meaningless compared to the revenge that you wish for?"
-Miria (Claymore)

"Parents don't seem to be paying attention, but they're always watching."
- Fujisaki "Bossun" Yusuke (SKET Dance)

"It must be really tough to stick with what you wanna do. I wouldn't know from experience, but to achieve results, you have to make a big effort in private. Unfortunately, having a dream can be painful."
- Fujisaki "Bossun" Yusuke (SKET Dance)

"Why do there have to be so many stars on a night like tonight? I'm gonna start to hate them."
- Fujisaki "Bossun" Yusuke (SKET Dance)

"They're not sweethearts, friends, and of course not a married couple. But if I had to express it in one word... I suppose I could only say they have a 'bond.'"
-Usui "Switch" Kazuyoshi (SKET Dance)

"Whatever the circumstances, it's never a good idea to get in the way of a person's feelings."
-Usui "Switch" Kazuyoshi (SKET Dance)

"'I wanna poop!' 'I don't wanna poop!' I'm like a puppet on a string, controlled by waves of feces!"
"What's sadder than having to draw a school of fish while tryin' to keep from crapping your pants?!"
"Are you alright? Can I have faith in you, my sphincter?"
- Fujisaki "Bossun" Yusuke (SKET Dance)

"Oh... I feel like I could do anything for that smile..."
-Nishimi Kaoru (Sakamichi no Apollon)

"Watermelon. Or like a panda with a mean face... Or a sandal with pressure points drawn on them... Or the smell of a blackboard eraser... Or a sunday morning, where you wake up and it's been raining... Well, I like him more than stale bread crusts."
-Samejima Mamimi (FLCL)

-Ren Akatsuki (Fairy Tail)

"We can't be in love with anyone who walks in the light."
-Jellal Fernandez (Fairy Tail)

"There are walls that can't be broken through power alone. But if there is a power that can break through those walls, it's the power of feelings."
-Mavis Vermilion (Fairy Tail)

"And so, he kissed me for real. I don't care much, since it was as good as deep-fried chicken."
-Tachibana Mei (Sukitte Ii na yo.)

"A weak heart hurts others."
-Kitagawa Megumi (Sukitte Ii na yo.)

"You know, if you married someone, that means you love every side of your significant other that you already know. So if you find a new side after to love, doesn't that mean you'll love your partner even more?"
-Kirigaya Kazuto "Kirito" (Sword Art Online)

"My HP might hit zero if you hug me too hard."
-Kirigaya Kazuto "Kirito" (Sword Art Online)

"The less experienced one is, the harder they strive for attention."
-Oreki Houtarou (Hyouka)

"The problem is that she's not someone I can ignore."
-Oreki Houtarou (Hyouka)

"You can't say the word 'expectations' when you have confidence in yourself. 'Expectations' are what you have when you've given up. You can't help it. Unless you've already given up, it sounds so fake."
-Fukube Satoshi (Hyouka)

"It's important to accept a defeat as a defeat. If a person had never experienced the emotional impact of a defeat, he neither learns how to stand back up after he falls nor how to move on. So dwell as much as you like. But when you're done, stand up and move on towards your future. While you're still dwelling, I'll be there to comfort you."
-Yoshii Akira (Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu)

"It's stupid to plan for failure."

-Sakata Gintoki (Gintama': Enchousen)

Katsura Kotaro: "When we believe you're taking the right path, we stick with you, no matter how hard it is."

(Gintama': Enchousen)

"I'm not interested in being a bogus samurai that doesn't follow a code!"
-Kondo Isao (Gintama': Enchousen)

"Listen up, you two. Tears are handy for washing away troubling and sad feelings. But when you grow up, you'll learn that there are things so sad, they can never be washed away by tears. That there are painful memories that should never be washed away. So people who are truly strong laugh when they want to cry. They endure all of the pain and sorrow while laughing with everybody else. You can cry all you want right now, but one day, you must become samurai strong enough not to cry."
-Obi'Wan Kenofi Hajime (Gintama': Enchousen)

"Hunger is the best spice, second only to love!"
-Fujishima Maiko (Kokoro Connect)

"Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration... However, you can interpret Edison's quote to mean that hard work means nothing without that flash of inspiration."
-Amakata Miho (Free!)

Motoharu: "What's 'tsundere'?"
Tanaka Yoshitake: "An abnormal and aggressive romantic relationship. It's a major topic of American criminal psychology. As for the motives behind the killing, they tend to arise from a vindictive disposition."
(Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou)

"A faint clap of thunder. Clouded skies. Perhaps rain comes. If so, will you stay here with me?"
-Yukino Yukari (Kotonoha no Niwa)

"To me, she represents nothing less than the very secrets of the world."

"You'll die an early death if I'm not there for you."
-Mikasa Ackerman (Shingeki no Kyojin)

-Armin Arlert (Shingeki no Kyojin)

"You can't hope for a horror story with a happy ending!"
-Eren Yeager (Shingeki no Kyojin)

"You can't feel lonely if there's no one else around."

-Nanashi (Stranger: Mukou Hadan)

"Cut flowers are kind of like ghosts. Normally, they bask in the sun and absorb nutrients from their roots, but when they are cut, the ugly parts are discarded and only the beautiful parts remain. It's too selfish. It'd be better if they were left to wither and become fertilizer for the next sapling!"
-Hazuki Ryousuke (Natsuyuki Rendezvous)

"If I could be born again, I'd still marry you."
-Shimao Atsushi (Natsuyuki Rendezvous)

"Well, it seems like she lost her memories, and women are highly susceptible to kindness when they're feeling down."
-Kagura (Gintama 2015)

"Even when faced with sins that must be severed, are you still gonna point that blade at yourself? Instead of wasting your sword on crap like that, use it as a crutch to move forward, even if your belly's been pierced and your guts are spilling out!"
-Sakata Gintoki (Gintama 2015)

"When people sin and degenerate into demons, the only beings capable of turning them humans again at the end are neither demons that take human heads, nor reapers that take their souls, but humans who sever their sins to save their souls."
