The zipper is a window to society.
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?

I’m sure we’ll be together till the end.

Kids these days just want to stuff their faces and make sweet love. At least that’s what Gin-chan says.
A strong woman would forget about past relationships and prepare herself for a new love.
Gin-chan says I shouldn’t play with strange men I don’t know.
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

[To Nobita] Now you know you can not make the gadgets do all the work. You yourself also have to make effort.
[To a Japanese Soldier in World War II] Don’t worry about the war. It will end soon.

I don’t want to live anymore.

I want a little sister who looks exactly like me and adorable.
Why the more I think I can do it, still I couldn’t?
It was on a new year day right? I was surprised because you suddenly appeared and said, “You are a screw up!” We’ve been to so many places together. The future, the past and other unknown places. We even escaped death! You never know what to do when you panic. Whenever I get into trouble you always cared like it was your problem. I never thanked you but I am always grateful. Sometimes we do get into serious fights. But no matter what we made up afterwards. Come on Doraemon, say something! Hey, Doraemon… (crying) Doraemon…
Life is meant to take things easy. That’s it, just relax and take things easy.
[To Doraemon] I am kind of worried. What if I can’t marry someone? What should I do?

I doubt I need an introduction, but just in case, I am the mighty Frieza and yes, all the horrible stories you’ve heard are true.
[Talking to Zarbon about Dodoria] Forget him. If he isn’t capable of dealing with two puny pests and a baby Namek, then I don’t want him back. Continue your search for the last two dragonballs.
[About Vegeta] Miserable Saiyan monkey.
Take note Zarbon. Because you can expect the same to happen to you if you don’t find out where that dragonball is. Do you understand? That is the price of careless mistakes. You had better hope for your sake that Vegeta is alive.
You should’ve gone in after him Zarbon. Now we can’t confirm anything just because you didn’t want to get wet. That’s careless. And, it was careless to try and kill Vegeta before you even questioned him. How do you know he hadn’t already found a dragonball and hidden it?
[Talking about Goku] Vegeta isn’t the only one that concerns me…there are others.
These Saiyans are proving to be quite a thorn in my side. It seems the more they fight, the stronger they become. Of course, I’m still much more powerful than they are, but if they keep multiplying their strength, then who knows what they might be capable of in the future. Best to eliminate them now, before they get any stronger.
[To Zarbon] You’d better, because if you don’t find him (Vegeta) within the hour, you’ll wish you’d never been born!
It’s quite simple Captain Ginyu. Your mission is to recover my dragonballs and bring me Vegeta!
Once I have the dragonballs, it will make a nice fireworks display to celebrate my immortality. Ah yes, I’ll write the name of Frieza in lights across the galaxy.
[When Ginyu trying to dance] Uh, Ginyu, if you value your life…stop.
Before you begin your pathetic struggle to survive, I should warn you. Your chance of winning is nonexistent.
Observe. My left hand…it’s strength alone is enough to crush you like the little bug you are, so as a special one time bonus, today, I will fight you while my other hand is behind my back. So now that we’ve got the ground rules settled, shall we begin?
[To his scouter communicator] Ginyu Force, this is Frieza! Come in! Over! What…no! This can’t be! Where are my soldiers? Why aren’t they showing up on my scouter!? There’s no way Vegeta and those miserable little punks could take down the entire Ginyu Force! If they’re sleeping on the job, I will make them pay!
So you are the ones. Naughty. I don’t see how three shrimps and a burnt out Saiyan managed to defeat the Ginyu Force, but now it’s your turn. Don’t worry. It won’t hurt too bad. Really. Death is my specialty.
[To Vegeta] There doesn’t seem to be any power readings for the Ginyu Force. So it is true. Heh heh heh heh heh. Somehow, you wimps have managed to destroy the most elite fighting team in the universe. Ha ha. What a farce. I only wish that I could’ve been there to see the look on Ginyu’s face. Ha ha ha ha ha. What do ya say we get started…I know you are all anxious to resolve this dispute once and for all. I always knew that you would turn on me someday, Vegeta, but I never knew when. Now, I see that you were just waiting for the stakes to get high enough before you played your hand. A valiant effort but in the end it just didn’t work, now did it? I hope you’ve thoroughly enjoyed your little rebellion, because now its over my restless little warriors. Now you die. I should’ve done this a long time ago. You ruined everything you little scumbag. How dare you stick your nose in my affairs? I could’ve been immortal. I hate you!
Oh, you rude little ruffian. Please. I don’t choose my real form because my power is too radical to control. Heh heh heh heh heh heh heh.
Oh, alright. Heh, I’ll bare it all. Heck, why not? Well, strap yourselves in. You’re in for one heck of a ride. Ha ha. Oh, and Vegeta, I want you to know that any remote chance you once had of winning is about to go flying out the window. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, I think it would be nice for somebody to give me a countdown.
Vegeta, it pains me to see you going through this. What a waste. I favored you so much. Why couldn’t you just continue to obey me?
The pain that you have caused me…I will return it ten-fold!
[Talking about Gohan] Don’t look so surprised Vegeta! I’ll be right with you, but first I must exterminate the mighty midget.
[To Piccolo] I suggest you go about your business Namekian. As of yet, I haven’t decided to kill you, but I’m real close. Now go before its too late. Please, it would ease my conscience knowing that I spared one of you.
You are quite the comedian Vegeta. If only the rest of your Saiyan people were around to see the brave prince Vegeta now, huh? But, ha ha ha ha ha ha ha…that really doesn’t matter, because I’ve got you cornered like a frightened little mouse. Oh, don’t worry, dear prince, I’m going to save you until I’ve taken care of your little Namek friend.
[About his 2nd transformation] Well, it looks like the tables have turned again my friend, and this time for the last time. So, are you ready for a taste of your demise? Because it’s coming up right now.
Vegeta, face it. To fight with me is futile and useless. Just wake up. You’re blind and delusional. You keep going on about being a Super Saiyan, but it’s just a myth Vegeta. I’ve never seen one, have you? You’re such a chump. Heh heh.
[To Goku] I’ve never met a sentimental Saiyan before. It’ll be your downfall.
[To Goku] Well, I’ve got to hand it to you. You’re the first one who’s ever hurt me besides my loving parents that is. Hm. It’s been so long since I felt pain. It’s such a strange sensation. What a rare case he is.
[About his final transformation] Don’t be glum. You should actually be flattered. I’ve never had to summon this much of my power to defeat someone. Fifty percent of my maximum. That’s all that’s required for this.
[Talking about Goku] Something is strange about this warrior. How does a Saiyan have such incredible power? They are, after all, inferior creatures. I’ve never met a figher with that kind of strength. Grrr…I must take him out now.
You humans are such sad and weak, foolish creatures.
Look at them all. Humans are foolish beyond salvation.
To get something, you evidently have to take it away from somebody else. In order to achieve anything in life, you inevitably have to take it from someone else… That is what any honest adult knows
You shouldn’t seek all the answers; believe me. You may not like what you find..
Maybe you are right. Where did I come from and where will I go? When I die? Maybe all this time that is what I wanted: the freedom to find out.
Have you ever wondered where we came from… or where we go after we’re dead?
The thought keeps rising like a bubble to the top of my mind. Where did I come from? Where will I go?
Where did I come from? Where will I go? Not for me to know.
You killed me. I hate losing. But there worse ways to die than at the hands of a man like you. I love how cold and focused your eyes are. I look forward to the day when those eyes will be wide with agony. It’s coming. It’s coming…
Memories…of the people we were. They’re subtle but they’re real. It took me a lot of time to understand what I saw… Books say we shouldn’t have memories. Or at least they’re only the memories and emotions of the alchemists who made us; that we see. But they’re wrong…Those memories are mine.
Deadly Sin, Greed. Homunculus that Wants Everything
About 130 years, I’d say. Let me break this down, nice and simple. You can either remain in here as lab rats or you can come with me to bring hell to those above us. Your choice. I’m only asking once!
Unfortunately I’m greedy as can be. I want your life too, Wrath.
There’s no such thing as no such thing.
They don’t call me Greed for nothing! I want money! Women! Status! And power! I want everything this world’s selling and eternity is topping the list! Understand?
I want everything you can possibly imagine. I want money and women, power and sex, status, glory! I demand the finer things in life!
Shut your worthless trap, ugly.
I disagree. You want to bring back someone that you’ve lost. You might want money. Maybe you want women. Or, you might want to protect the world. These are all common things people want. Things that their hearts desire. Greed may not be good, but it’s not so bad, either. You humans think greed is just for money and power! But everyone wants something they don’t have.
I’m greedy as hell, only out for myself….
[Ling]- SOLDIERS! If you have a family go home! If you don’t wish to get hurt leave NOW! [Greed]- OH YEAH! and Ladies! I dont fight girls, I’m just not that type of guy!
We homunculi, we’re born when an alchemist tries to recreate life. We are weakened when we are close to the remains of whomever it was the alchemist tries to resurrect. That is the homunculi’s weak point. That’s how we can be killed. Understand? And not come back.
Deadly Sin, Envy. Homunculus That Jealous With Others
I’ve come to kill him! Take me to Hohenheim of light! Hey, what are you doing? Stop messing with me! You do as I tell you!! You’re taking me to see Hohenheim! To that bastard! To my father!!!
Edward Elric. I’ve been looking for you! Did you miss me?! Take me to Hohenheim! To our father!!!
[To Wrath] What’s wrong with you!? How could you let that bastard go after what he did?!! You should’ve yanked his spine out of his mouth! It’s not too late to kill him, so get to it!
The question is, are you going to work with us – if not, the village is history. Lust told me about your arrangement; as long as we agree to leave the village alone, you’ll do whatever we ask. Which is it? Agree to work with us, and kill everyone in this country, or, refuse to work with us and watch every one in your beloved village die? Fool, you just have to forsake one little village to save an entire country. Too bad you don’t have the stomach to do the logical thing. Ha ha, I shouldn’t be surprised, that’s just how all you humans are, you put emotion before common sense. I killed a man who was like that once. All I had to do was make myself look like his wife and he was helpless – he couldn’t even fight me! You humans are so easy to take advantage of. Lucky us.
THAT’S ENOUGH! You should have just done as you were told, but if you scum really wanna test me, then I’ll show WHO’S IN CHARGE!
Really? And what about your sick games? Don’t kid yourself, Mustang, you know how humans love to watch other people suffer while making fools of themselves. I mean, why else would you constantly be at war with each other?
Hah Moron? Tell me who the real moron is here, because I don’t think it’s me! I prefer to use that term for someone who falls for a cheap trick like this! Ha ha! You should see your face! Oh, you’re not gonna believe this, but that was the same look on Hughes’ face when I shot him! The utter shock, the dumb confusion! You could see every emotion he felt as his own wife shot him! It, was, GREAT!
Are you a moron? Some nice, flowery words and feigned empathy?! You make me sick to my stomach! Are you humans always such pathetic worms?! Why can’t you just listen to your gut and do what you want to? Colonel Mustang, have you forgotten? Your pal, Scar, here was going to kill you! And what’s more, wasn’t he the one who killed the parents of the pipsqueak’s girly friend? Oh, yeah! And what about that little girl who became a chimera? Scar was responsible for her death, too! And as for you! Have you completely forgotten your hatred for they did to your Ishvalan countrymen? And then, this woman! She has the arrogance to claim the sight of a hawk; she shot your buddies left and right! You’ll never get another chance! This is the perfect time! The ultimate opportunity! Hate them and weep! Kill and be killed! Fight each other! Grovel in the dirt! How could you four hope to team up? You’re way beyond the point of kissing and making up! Right, pipsqueak? Right, Hawkeye? Mustang? Scar? There’s no way. No. No, you can’t! Never! NEVER! It’s impossible! How could you? How could you do it? HOW!?
Damn! Dammit! Dammit! I’ve been humiliated! HUMILIATED! Me, Envy, Jealous of you? A human?! I’m a homunculus! How could this pipsqueak kid see through me? It’s the ultimate humiliation!
I guess we’ll how long this adorable little alliance of yours can kill then! Ah well, best of luck with that, pipsqueak!
Deadly Sin, Gluttony. Voracious Homunculus
Come on, Lust, isn’t it time you let me eat the old preacher?
Can I eat him now?
He looks delicious.
It’s him, Lust. It’s him!
I’ll kill them! Let me! Let me, please!
Lust? Wheres my Lust?
I hate you! I hate you for hurting my Lust!
Come look, Come look. Death. Death. Soon they will all be dead.
Deadly Sin, Pride. Arrogant Homunculus, Feeling High and Mighty
You ask my name? It’s Pride, and I was the first Homunculus.
Wrath and the like do not exist inside me. There is no wrath, or lust, or sloth, or greed, or gluttony, or envy, such emotions have fled from my father. My name is Pride.
I’m not angry, I’m never angry.
So what!? Don’t try to force your flawed human logic on us! I’ve made my bet.
What was it you were always saying? That you wanted to see which way the world would choose? And here you are, dying like a pathetic wreck. It must be humiliating.
Really? Is that your plan? Your stature has lead you to prove your worth by always fighting those who are larger than you. So then, you don’t exactly have much experience in fighting those who are smaller than you.
Ah, this should make things much easier, I can practically smell movement you make. I could do without the ravenous hunger, but I suppose I’ll just have to secede it. Oh wait…I recognize that scent. You’re somewhere close by aren’t you? Hohenheim?
They may well be tenacious creatures, but humans are easy to dupe.
One can be sure, in this world, humans are of little consequence.
Either because of love or out of foolish curiosity, human transmutations are attempted. And when these attempts all backfire, a different life is created. A being that has its own body and mind, but no soul. That is how the damned are born. That is a homunculus!
Let me get this straight, you think surrendering, and offering yourself will stop the war? How arrogant. The life of each human is worth one, that’s it. Nothing more, nothing less.
My life was lived on the rails that were laid down for me…but thanks to you humans, it was…to some degree, a good life…one worth living.
Is that all being human means… that you can die? Then, why do I want to become one, so bad?
Why must everyone make such a fuss over the death of a single soldier? The moment a soldier dons his uniform, he accepts the reality that he might be buried in it.
God you say? Now this is intriguing, how much longer do you think your ‘God’ plans to wait before unleashing his fury? Just how many more thousands of lives must I take before he decides to strike me down?
Open your eyes. ‘God’ is nothing more than a construct created by man to inspire fear and promote order. If you wish to see me struck down, for all these atrocities, use your own hands to do so, not ‘God’s’.”
[To Lan Fan] Stop throwing around words like “love” and “sorrow.” You know nothing. She’s the woman I chose. We didn’t need such meaningless words to understand each other. That, is what it means to be the wife of the Fuhrer.
Do they really expect me to make a complete mockery of myself by entering through the back door of my own Palace?
There is something poetic about two nameless men fighting to the death.
Deadly Sin, Sloth. Trisha Elric Back to Life
Edward… Why couldn’t you make me right?
That’s why I have to kill you, so I can prove this identity is false… Because no real mother would kill her own sons. As long as you children are alive, these memories will torment me trying to make me into this human…
It hurts Edward… That’s very clever, but you are going to need more than that.
[To Edward while dying] You have done well. Don’t forget to clean up afterwards.
[To Edward] Eventhough I am not your mother, if I was… I might love you.
No matter what you do, I won’t die.
I remember being a mother with endless emotions, now I have NONE…
Manga is virtual. Manga is sentiment. Manga is resistance. Manga is bizarre. Manga is pathos. Manga is destruction. Manga is arrogance. Manga is love. Manga is kitsch. Manga is sense of wonder. Manga is … there is no conclusion yet.
Comics are an international language, they can cross boundaries and generations. Comics are a bridge between all cultures.
I don’t consider them pictures… In reality I’m not drawing. I’m writing a story with a unique type of symbol.
Now we are living in the age of comics as air.
Tezuka Quotes about Human Life
My teacher said once that every man faces seven enemies in his lifetime. Sickness, hunger, betrayal, envy, greed, old age, and then death. What is one man’s life compared to the eternity of time and space? No more than a snowflake that glitters in the sun for a moment before melting into the flow of time.
Coincidence doesn’t happen a third time.
Where there is ignorance, sickness will thrive.
By nature, it’s impossible to describe enlightenment! How do you plan on sharing your enlightenment? Hahaha, that’s impossible. Wake up! That’ll be the end of the world if you ever succeed!
Human beings wear clothing and walk upright, but when you take that away, we’re nothing but monkeys.
A life must be saved as long as it can be no matter whose it is.
I can cheat fear today – but won’t it return tomorrow? Rather, I must embrace this fear… and find peace in its bosom.
I am known as Valentinez Alkalinella Xifax Sicidabohertz Gombigobilla Blue Stradivari Talentrent Pierre Andri Charton-Haymoss Ivanovici Baldeus George Doitzel Kaiser III. Dont hesitate to call.
Those who make mistakes blame themselves and close their hearts. It’s impossible to fix the mistake; men can’t return to the past. That’s why they drink. Lushes, drunks, sliding alcohol down their throats to try to dilute the memories that can’t be forgotten. Frank Marlon, the gunsmith, does nothing but drink, and questions the glass after it’s empty. “Am I wrong? Was I wrong?”
I hope you don’t mind me barging in like this. In spite of the profession I’ve chosen, I’ve never actually made a confession before. It’s these times we live in. I did what it took to protect the children at any cost. That’s how I always justified my actions. I took many people’s lives, all that time believing there was no other way. My sins are so heavy. Too heavy. Too heavy to ever atone for. And yet, somehow I feel happy, at peace with myself today. It really can be done. Once you stop to think about it, there are plenty of ways to save everyone. Why didn’t I ever listen to him? Why didn’t I see that before it was too late?
I meditate diligently every morning. The subject is Life and Love. I quit after three seconds.
We’re nothing like God. Not only do we have limited powers, but sometimes we’re driven to become the devil himself. What’s your answer this time?
Life is an incessant series of problems… all difficult, with brutally limited choices – and a time limit.
The tragedy endlessly repeated in order to fulfill desires, the lust for conquest making people bend to your will, a thrill intense enough to make you shudder. There is a man who is a slave to that ecstasy, the leader of the Badlads. A man who shines: Brilliant Dynamites Neon. The sandsteamer will shake the moment each of the huge dynamos on each of his shoulders start to spark. In the pitch black darkness, the gruesome party begins.
Dangerous toys are fun but you could get hurt.
I picked up my first gun at the age of seven. And I shot. I remember how strangely easy it was to pull the trigger. Ha. I actually laughed. Because that one shot was all that was needed to silence that sickening piece of garbage who had the nerve to call himself my guardian. Ha. It was that simple. And so I was free. Yes, tomorrow would be different. Hm. Tomorrow. As much as I wanted to believe, it only went from bad to worse. A vicious cycle… I didn’t want other kids to grow up like me, so I started my own orphanage. It was gratifying work, I was actually doing something for the good of others. It was my place of peace and happiness… yet sometimes, I still think to myself ‘there’s no place worse than this planet. It’s horrible here.’
Vash the Stampede… every time I observe his actions I can’t help but sense something hidden deep within him, something we can’t being to understand. But this much is certain: everyone one who has become involved with him has somehow regained an emotion which was once lost
