Kotaro Katsura, the Leader of the Joui Faction

If you have faith, your dreams will surely come true.

But I suppose it’s not so bad that an old friend is the same as ever.

We could drive them off the entire earth if we had your strength, Gintoki!

Gintoki, will you take up your sword once again to cleanse this rotting nation? Lend me the strength of the fearsome white demon once again. Is this it? Rather than falling into enemy hands, we should kill ourselves and die as warriors.

Eyebrow Zombies… How about we call them Zombrows?

When it’s to protect something, everyone bares their fangs. You, who have nothing to protect, are nothing more than a beast.

Nothing awaits you beyond there but HELL.

It’s not Zura. IT’S KATSURA!

Kagura, the Queen of the Kabuki District

I choose my own battlefields. Not by my blood, but by my heart! I stand on the battlefield to protect what’s important to me. And if anyone stands in my way, I don’t care if it’s one of my kind, my brother or anyone else… I’ll crush them all!

It hasn’t withered. I won’t let it wither. We might just be little branches, but if the branches break off, the tree really will wither. That’s why I won’t break off. Even if winter comes and the leaves fall off, even if the wind comes and all the other little branches break off… Even if I am the last branch left, I won’t break off. I’m sure we’ll be together till the end.

You don’t need a driver’s license to hit and run!

I’m on TV! I gotta call my folks!

Hijikata Toushirou, the Demonic Vice-Commander

There is no need for any proof. There is no need to create any. We just have to live every second to the fullest, and the traces of the path we lived will burn into the ground. That will serve as proof of our existence.

If you run into a wall and pretend it doesn’t exist, you’ll never make progress. The wall will never change, so you’re the one who has to change.

It’s spicy… It’s spicy. Damn it, why am I… It’s so spicy I have tears in my eyes.

Oi, oi. Why do you have red eyes? Have you been playing Tetris all night?

Happiness depends on each person. If you think you’re happy, then you must be happy.

The best way to live a full life is to be a child, no matter your age.

Anime – it’s not something that can be thought of in a hall for conferences. It is made out of strange juices current from the brain of animators.

I’ve told you, this isn’t a cigarette. It’s a lollipop!

Gintoki Greatest Quotes
animelap.com

You yourself have to change first, or nothing will change for you.

What is right? What is wrong? In this mixed up world, deciding what is right and wrong is not easy. You can’t just go by somebody else’s rules. If you let yourself be controlled like that, you’ll just become a puppet that can’t make decisions on it’s own. You have to live by your rules.

But men are always boys at heart until they die.

It’s often said, “People who are similar can be called friends”, right? You haven’t been making a good life for yourself, have you? Well, I guess I’m no better.. People don’t try to make a life that they can’t be proud of… They have the intention of staying on the straight path, but out of blue, they’re in the dirt. But, even so, with heart and soul you try to brake through. There will be a day, that even dirt will dry and fall off.

What are you, some tantrum throwing brat who forgot to buy his Jump? Having no money is like having a sinus infection. You just have to ignore it and not pick at it, and it’ll go away.

The earth’s rowdier than a group of five high school guys living under the same roof.

Manga endings might always end the same. However, if it comes to life. Neither you or I are mere readers. We are writers. We can change the ending.

Yeah, I know. It’s not good to be reading Jump at my age.

Funny Inspirational Quotes

When a woman says something’s cute, a man just can’t trust it.

What is it, you? Bang bang banging on people’s heads like that. Are you hoping to become a tambourine player? If you don’t like Shin-chan, then how about Sen-chan from secret operation?

Great Quotes from Gintama Anime

If we’re unable to climb down the mountain, then we won’t know whether there’s another mountain to climb up.

No matter whether you win or not, there’s no meaning to war.

You yourself have to change first, or nothing will change for you!

That’s the kind of people they are. Whether it was me or not doesn’t make a difference. A person falling to their doom, and without a second thought they would jump in to save them. It’s impossible to just sit and let it happen. Without thinking of the consequences their bodies just move. That’s what kind of idiocy is gathered here. That’s the Yorozuya. Even if you forget everything else, as long as you remember that much, we’re good. As long as you remember that, whomever your leader is, you guys will do fine.

Have faith in your inspiration. Feel the imagination!

Nobody can take anybody’s place. There isn’t a person in this world that could take your place. It doesn’t matter if you were based on me or have the same face.

That’s like what an evil organization in some anime would do.

Hey, what’s that natto for, anyway? If you intend to seduce me with it, you’re way off base, you know.

Even if you’re a main character, you can still die… I better be careful-ttebayo.

When boys get to a certain age, family becomes a bother. That’s how they become independent.

Ironic, isn’t it? How people without truly important things know about them more than those who have them.

There are two things people fear… those are death and embarrassment. Those who try to overcome death are just idiots, but I won’t laugh at those who try to overcome their embarrassment. I like those kind of idiots.

Goodbyes are only one side of the coin. You can’t say goodbye until you’ve said hello.

The Best Quotes from Gintoki
aminoapps.com

Sake sure is nice. You can forget your troubles if only for a moment. You’ll have to remember them tomorrow though, and they’ll be even more painful than they were the night before. You can’t run away from things like this. Especially from things you really want to forget.

Don’t worry. When people break their old selves they embark a journey to find their new selves.

Stress makes you bald, but it’s stressful to avoid stress, so you end up stressed out anyway. In the end, there’s nothing you can do.

A farewell is like the other side of a coin. It will only happen when there is an encounter. Rather than dreading the day we have to part, shouldn’t we be happy that we had the chance to meet today instead?

Life is like a mountain – you can say you’ve reached the top, but only after climbing back down.

Honest feelings can sometimes lead to cruel endings.

You STILL don’t get it? When you tossed all of that away, a few important things were discarded as well. You abandoned your friends? More like you were afraid of BEING abandoned. You fight by yourself? More like you hid yourself in solitude from the beginning. You abandoned yourself? No… You just couldn’t bear the pain of having a heavy load place upon you, or being a heavy load, so you ran. Like the coward you are. If you want to live your life abandoning one thing after another, that’s your choice. But to try to incite your student to join you because you can’t handle being alone, makes you a fool.

I don’t have anything anymore, but if there’s something on the floor, I’ll pick it up.

Idiots in their idiotic way have their own idiotic worries.

Could it be that this (metal detector) can even detect the iron will of a person?

Listen up! Let’s say you drink too much strawberry milk, and have to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. But it’s cold outside your bed. You don’t want to get up, but the urge to urinate is just too strong! You make up your mind to go! You run to the bathroom, stand in front of the toilet, and let loose! You think that all your life has led to this moment! But then you realize! It isn’t the bathroom, you’re still in bed! That feeling of lukewarm wetness spreads like wildfire! But you don’t stop! You can’t stop! That’s what I’m talking about! THAT’S THE TRUTH OF THE STRAWBERRY MILK! DO YOU GET IT!?

What are you talking about? We LET you corner us.

Katsura, just stop this. No matter how elegant you think dying is, your death won’t appease your conscience and won’t change anything.

Shut up you! What’s with that TV drama attitude?!

It might be dog food. Take it.

In this country, we don’t call someone who can stop a scooter with her bare hands a girl. We call her a mountain gorilla.

If you die, don’t come crying to me about it.

Leave it at that. Even though she was raised by gorillas, she’s still a woman.

You can’t just run away, especially from the things you want to forget!

Shinpachi, just remember this… We aren’t friends with justice or even your sister. We’re YOUR friends.

Even if you can’t move anymore, or your back gets bent out of shape, it doesn’t matter! What matters is what’s inside! Not what someone looks like, dammit!

Life is basically like a soap bubble. It rides on the wind, flying here and there… and before you realize it – pop! It’s gone. When it’s about to disappear, you think that you could’ve flown a little higher. But by the time, it’s already too late.

The Other Side of the Other Side of the Other Side would be the Other Side.

Funny Motivational Quotes

They have a one-eye bandaged member, so we’ll be better and have a two-eye bandaged member!

It may be tough now, but the worst is surely yet to come. Keep that in mind, and you’ll be fine.

Having no money is like having a sinus infection. You just ignore it and it goes away.

We’re not going to sneak in, we’re gonna bust in. To bust in means to go in from the front, guns blazing.

Thanks for the support! Here come the real heroes!

The country? The skies? You can have them. I’m busy just protecting what’s right in front of me. I don’t know what’ll happen to me in the future, but if something has fallen at my feet, then the least I can do is pick it up.

Oi, oi, why are you letting them chase you, idiot?

So what if the government collapses or the country is ruined? I’m not civic-minded! All I want to do is stand tall and live on until the day I collapse and die!

Whether I go or not, I’ll die anyway. I have an organ more important than my heart. Although you can’t see it, I feel it going through my head down to my feet, and I know it exists within me. It lets me stand on my feet, it lets me walk forward without trembling. If I stop here, I feel like it would break… My soul will break.

People need to live their life with a clear conscience. When you want to walk on a straight path, somehow you get yourself stained with mud. However, as long as we never give up, one day the mud on you will dry up and fall off.

No matter how colossal a power you obtain, no matter how gigantic an army you bring with you, I ain’t scared. While you’ve abandoned a hundred, I’ve connected with a thousand. While you’ve destroyed a thousand, I’ve been helped by ten thousand. So what’s an army of a few thousand? We have protected everything as just three people. We’re the Yorozuya.

No matter how hard you blow, you can never extinguish our fire. As long as a single flare remains, the others can be relit.

A Quote from Gintoki Sakata
nouwcdn.com

If you have time to think of a beautiful end, then live beautifully until the end.

Everyone’s carrying something that matters. You just don’t realize when you’re carrying it. It’s only after it slips out of your hand that you realize how heavy it was in the first place. So many times I thought that I’d never carry a load like that ever again. And yet, before I realized it, I was carrying it again. I’d feel so much better if I just got rid of it. But I just can’t bring myself to do it.

Listen up, I don’t care what you punks do around the universe. But with this, my sword… anywhere it can reach, is part of my country! Asses who blunder in and violate my things… whether it be a Shogun, whether it be space pirates, whether it be a meteorite – I’ll destroy them!!

A samurai doesn’t need a reason to do what’s right. If you want to protect her, you must draw your sword.

The night is in its darkest just before dawn. But keep your eyes open. If you avert your eyes from the dark, you’ll be blinded by the rays of a new day. So keep your eyes open, no matter how dark the night ahead may be.

Trying to shoulder the burden all by yourself? Don’t be a stranger. Weep and ask for help. Lean on me with your runny nose. Cry when you feel like crying. Laugh when you feel like laughing. When you’re tearing up with an ugly face, I’ll give you a good cry with an uglier face. When you’re laughing so hard your stomach hurts, I’ll laugh in a louder voice. That’s how it should be. It’s far better to get dirty while living true to yourself, than to throw away yourself and die a clean death.

Do you really intend to lose even more of your friends for something like that? I’ll pass on that. As long as I’m alive, I’ll live by my own rules. I’ll live as I see fit and protect that which I hold dear.

Humorous Parody Quotes

Man, I wish I had a Bankai or something. (Bleach Parody)

That’s a good attitude. You should hate me more, curse me more, and detest me! Then you should take the power of that hatred and use it to survive in this rotten world. (Naruto Parody)

Every since childhood we’ve dreamed of being pirates. We’re looking for the fabled treasure they call “One Pack”, right Zura? (One Piece Parody)

Ah, I wish I could have a bankai like that. (Bleach Parody)

Luffy Quotes about Friendship

I’ve gotta speak to someone important, and seeing how important people live in tall buildings…

As long as everyone else survived, like I did. Then that’s fine.

I can’t calm down until I find my crewmates.

I sure owe you a lot for all you’ve done. Sorry I can’t do anything to repay you.

I hope everyone is safe like that too.

Just run away, everyone! We’ll think things over once we’re safe.

We’ll have to make sure that none of us die, eh?

I don’t know anything about it, but everyone sets off to sea to find out for themselves.

You three are my friends now! No matter what happens, I’ll definitely save Caimie!

I won’t forgive anyone who dare to take our flag!

Those women sure are scary! Nami is a lot better than them! Maybe not…

Oi, do you know where Usopp is, Sogeking? He disappeared.

It’s nothing special. We were just getting back our nakama (friend) who was taken from us.

No matter what’s happening right now, they’ll survive.

I’m not alone. I wouldn’t want to come alone. I’m different from you guys, I’m not alone.

When I was a kid, I swore to gather nakama and become the Pirate King!

You’re already my nakama, Robin. Just like the pirate who protected me, I’ll protect you too!

[To Nico Robin] We already came this far. Anyway, we’re gonna save you. And then, if you still want to die. You can die after we save you.

Whether you wanna die or not, I don’t care about whatever you say! Say that kind of thing while you’re by our sides!

I thought about a way to fight at my fullest. So that I don’t lose anyone… So that I don’t let anyone drift away…

If I don’t get stronger than everyone else, I’ll lose them all!

That’s because even if they aren’t strong, I have nakama I want to keep with me.

If strong guys like this are going to appear on our road later. If I don’t get stronger, I won’t be able to protect my nakama.

We’re all facing in the same direction, but it’ll all be for nothing if we don’t fight together.

I won’t let Robin die!! I don’t care about that. I’m not gonna be satisfied until i kicked your ass.

I know that I need others to help me if I want to keep on living!

Those are my nakama! And you won’t take them even if I die!

Being lonely is more painful than getting hurt.

Stop screaming. You’re a nakama of the future pirate king!

If it was sympathy, would we put our lives at risk?

Luffy Quotes about Going Merry

Luffy Quotes, The Future Pirate King!

All of us got one of these, so we should be able to find each other again. Everyone is tough.

This reminds me of the past, back when gramps threw me into the jungle.. I don’t wanna remember that.

You guys are all really annoying, but I don’t have any business with you right now.

I don’t wanna conquer anything! It’s just that the person with the most freedom on the sea is the Pirate King!

If we’re gonna have a boring adventure like that, then I would rather die!

I don’t wanna hear where the treasure is!

I don’t even wanna hear if there is a treasure or not!

Imaging old Lady Kokoro as a mermaid is for some reason really gross.

I’m overflowing with power… I can’t hold it in!

I don’t know whose pirate flag this is, or where it’s from. But this a flag you pledge your life to.

They gave up on their flag. These guys are no longer pirates.

The words “give up” are for those who have fought to the very end!

At this moment I don’t feel like losing at all!

It’s a hero! I knew it from the beginning since he had a cape!

If I die trying, at least I tried.

I have a reason to not lose this time!

But even if you can predict moves it doesn’t mean anything if you can’t dodge them.

Don’t decide my grave, I am not meant to die here.

A true pirate would never give up his name til the day he dies.

Thats so stupid ! I like your style!

Things are finally getting interesting. The stronghold Ossan said escape is impossible!

What god would try to destroy everything?

Lightning wont work on me! Hitting me won’t work either!

It’s not if it’s impossible or not, I do it because I want to.

A dead end! After I had to walk all this way? That’s no fair!

Maybe if I break through, I can keep going?

So what if you’re one of the Shichibukai? Then I must be THE HACHIBUKAI!

I have to go directly south, and that’d the direction that feels the warmest!

[To Zoro] Man, your sense of direction surprises even me!

Don’t worry. We won’t lose!

How can I fight it if I can’t touch it?

But even if you can predict moves it doesn’t mean anything if you can’t dodge them.

What’s more important, adventures or your life?

There’s danger no matter where we go.

I don’t care ! I want to go Sky Island!

You don’t need power. We pirates have a dream.

If we don’t move, we’ll never get back, right?

If you’re so afraid of the fame of the sea then you’re not qualified to be a pirate!

It’s not if it’s impossible or not, I do it because I want to.

It doesn’t matter how old you are. You can become a pirate whenever you want.

Attacking from behind is cowardly.

Since you mention pistols, bet your life on it. It’s not a tool to scare people.

The one who takes more is smarter, right?

I don’t give a shit who you are! I will surpass you!

We won’t stop fighting. You can’t defeat me!

Depending on how you use the ability of the devil’s fruit it can become stronger.

35 One Piece Manga and Anime Quotes from Roronoa ‘Santouryuu’ Zoro

One Piece Manga and Anime Quotes

If I die here, then I’m a man that could only make it this far.

You need to accept the fact that you’re not the best and have all the will to strive to be better than anyone you face.

You’ve underestimated me, snow woman. When you thought you couldn’t beat me, you should have run. Of course, there are things that I don’t wanna cut. But… let me ask you something. Have you ever seen a fierce animal you were sure would never bite? Because I haven’t.

Bring on the hardship. It’s preferred in a path of carnage.

Either in belief or doubt, if I lean to one of these sides, my reaction time will be dulled if my heart thinks the opposite of what I choose.

I don’t care what the society says. I’ve regretted doing anything. I will survive and do what I want to.

You want to kill me? You couldn’t even kill my boredom!

Pirate Hunter, Roronoa Zoro Anime Quotes
One Piece Quotes from Pirate Hunter, Roronoa Zoro

You sure can talk the talk, but you’re not quite ready to walk the walk. Time’s up, it’s my turn.

When the world shoves you around, you just gotta stand up and shove back. It’s not like somebody’s gonna save you if you start babbling excuses.

So, are you stupid enough to fall for such a stupid trap that such stupid people set up?

A wound that’d make an ordinary man unconscious… I won’t lose to it. A wound that would kill an ordinary person… I won’t lose to it! To face one who is extraordinary, Hawk Eyes… I can’t allow myself to be ordinary!

There should be a limit to how similar a couple looks like.

When I decided to follow my dream, I had already discarded my life.

If you kill yourself, I’ll kill you.

Well, how about this. My “luck” versus this thing’s “curse”. Wanna see what’s stronger..? If I lose, then I’m just that much of a man anyways…

There is someone that I must meet again. And until that day…not even Death itself can take my life away!

I don’t know. I’m not sure why myself. But if I were to take even one step back, I believe that all those important oaths, promises and many other deals ’til now, will all go to waste and I’ll never be able to return before you, ever again.

One Piece Anime Quotes from Zoro
One Piece Quotes from Roronoa ‘Santouryuu’ Zoro

If I can’t even protect my captain’s dream, then whatever ambition I have is nothing but talk… Luffy must be the man who becomes the pirate king!

When you decided to go to the sea, it was your own decision. Whatever happens to you on the sea, it depends on what you’ve done! Don’t blame others!!

You’ll never understand…your swords will never be as heavy as mine!

If you do anything that would cause me to abandon my ambitions… You will end your own life on my sword!

Fine! I’d rather be a pirate than die here!

I do things my own way! So don’t give me any lip about it!

24 Rurouni Kenshin Manga and Anime Quotes from Makoto Shishio

Rurouni Kenshin Anime and Manga Quotes from Shishio

[To Kenshin] Call me Shishio, my rude predecessor.

I was almost assassinated; when my wounds had finally healed and I tried coming out, the Meiji government had succeeded in ending the violence. Now they who tried to eliminate me won’t send a single troop against me for fear of looking weak before the Western powers. This weak government. I cannot leave this country to such a weak government. If the violence was ended, I’ll awaken it! I’ll seize control! I’ll make this country strong. Justice will be served when the country is mine.

[To Kenshin] I’m kidding, I’m kidding. Learn how to take a joke. You’re as serious as the rumors say you are.

Anime and Manga Quotes from Shishio Makoto
Makoto Shishio in Rurouni Kenshin Manga

If you trust, you will be betrayed. If you are careless, you will die. Kill, or be killed. And, A good man is never far from a woman.

The government is the real bad guy. They used me and then tried to burn me to death.

No. It doesn’t matter where you’re born. It’s because you’re weak. In this world, the flesh of the weak is the food of the strong. The strong live, the weak die. No matter how hard you smile, you can’t run from the truth.

[To Kenshin] You fool. Who do you think you are? I’m just here to laugh at you. But I might take you with me all the same. You just have to realize that you were a failure. Your sword, your beliefs, your life, everything… admit it was all one big mistake you can never take back.

[To Komagata Yumi] Everything you’ve just said completely wrong. The circumstances of the world are entirely irrelevant. What is to blame? There is but one answer: Your Weakness! In this world, the flesh of the weak is the food of the strong.

Interesting… Of course, when it comes to matters of buying and selling, what is or isn’t at fault is irrelevant. But, what shall be my reward?

Rurouni Kenshin Anime and Manga Quotes from Shishio
Makoto Shishio, Leader of The Juppongatana

[To Komagata Yumi] I told you didn’t I? Your weakness is to blame. That protégée of yours was weak, so she was killed. Those twin Kamuro were weak, so they were kidnapped. And you are weak, so you CRY. In this world, the flesh of the weak is the food of the strong. If you are strong, you live. If you are weak, you die.

So my road to hell is paved with the orders of a whore? FINE BY ME!

Little puppies… Should know better than to snap back at their elders…

[To The Wagatsumi Shark Corps] It’s nothing personal, but I’m sad to say that all two hundred of you fools are going to be sleeping with the fishes tonight.

[To Ichigase] Tch… I expected more, boy. This isn’t even enough to get me warmed up. You fools…are just too fucking weak!

[To Houji] I just paid you a compliment man. Geez, Do me a favor and at least smile.

I believe in hell…while these men of violence who wash away blood with blood crawl upon the earth, is it not a suitable place to call hell?

This world, full of evil and violence, is Hell itself. Don’t you think?

If the revolution is over, then I’ll start another one!!

[To Ichigase] As I recall, you were blathering on earlier about how you were going to “Make this country strong.” Guess what? I am aiming for the same goal. By means of a Coup d’Etat. Before addressing that goal, don’t you think it’s prudent to first settle, once and for all, which of us is the stronger, more qualified applicant for that job?

[To Enishi] If you’ve got a problem with them (the payment), we’ll just take the ship for free. And your life along with it.

[To Juppongatana] Move out! It is once again time to throw this country into chaos!

This world, full of evil and violence, is hell itself. Don’t you think?

Movie Quotes from Shishio Makoto
Shishio Makoto in Rurouni Kenshin Live Action Movie

[To Kenshin] I almost forgot… I can not go on avoiding you forever. Fine by me, let’s dance, you and I.

Once upon an age past, the day I was burned alive, I stood, if only for an instant, in hell. Darkness and bleached bones as far as the eye could see… A world of absolute silence. It didn’t feel lonely, but going there alone was boring.

In my battle with the Battousai, the spirits were afraid of me, and chose to side with him. But there’s only evil people down here, so that won’t happen this time.

It’s meaningless to just live, and it’s meaningless to just fight. I want to win.

If I’m protecting someone, I won’t let her die, and if I’m attacking, I’ll cut you.

Become strong not just for your own sake, but for your friends.

[To Kuchiki Rukia] Are you any different!? You sacrificed yourself to save me that time!! At that time were you thinking about complicated stuff like “this is my Shinigami duty”!? That’s not what sacrificing yourself is! At the very least… I’m different! I haven’t accepted any commitment. If things get bad I might run away… since I’m not a good enough person to be able to sacrifice my life for total strangers. But unfortunately I’m also not trash that can live happily without paying back his debts!

I see. So basically, you’re a shinigami? And you came all the way from some place called Soul Society to vanquish evil spirits? Which means that monster earlier was one of those evil spirits? And it attacked that little girl? Okay, I belie- NO WAY I’LL BELIEVE THAT, DUMBASS!
