25 Bleach Manga and Anime Quotes from Zaraki Kenpachi

It’s been so long that I forgot the pain of not having a name. Everyone had a name that friends use to call them, but I didn’t. That pain.

Never admit defeat and ask for a quick death! Die first, then admit defeat! If you are defeated but didn’t die, it just means you were lucky! At those times, think only about survival! Survive and think only about killing the one who failed to kill you!

You idiot! There’s always shadows wherever there’s light!

Inspirational Anime Quotes from Bleach
Zaraki Kenpachi, Captain of 11th Division

Oh, shut up. I was just thinkin’. With four arms, you’re just gonna keep on blockin’ my blade. That’s no fun at all. So, while I was layin’ on the ground, I was thinkin’ about how to stop you blockin’ all my attacks. But, you know…I couldn’t think up a single good idea lying down there. So I figure…I’ll just have to take out those arms, one by one.

Finished? It’ll never be finished. A battle isn’t like some stupid argument. As long as someone’s still breathing, the fight isn’t over.

How about I give you an advantage. Cut me anywhere you want.

Fight to the death eh? Great! If I kill you, become a ghost and come back to kill me!

Heh sanity? Sorry, I don’t recall ever having anything like that.

You want a reason…for fighting? Why don’t you just accept it already, Ichigo?! You seek out fights. You desire power. Isn’t that right, Ichigo? Everyone who searches for power, without exception, searches for battle! Do you fight in order to become more powerful? Or do you want more power so you can fight? I can’t tell you that. The only thing I know for sure is guys like us were born this way! We were born to fight, Ichigo! Your instincts will keep leading you toward new battles. It’s the only way you have. The only way to become stronger. Fight, Ichigo! If you want the power to control your enemy, take that sword in your hand and cut him down! That’s your only option! That’s the road that continues in front of you and remains behind you, Ichigo!

Loyalty to someone is different from depending on them. It is not even interesting fighting againts someone who does not have his own goals.

Anime and Manga Quotes from Captain of Shinigami
Zaraki Kenpachi’s New Look

Death and pain are just a small price to pay for the enjoyment of battle!

Playing is more important. You can work any time.

[To Yammy after recieving his punch] I barely feel a thing. Now I’m sure you think I’m a big fly or something. But if you are going to punch, you better put in some effort you great big worm.

Blah blah blah! You’re noisy! Just come on and fight already. It’s best if all four of you come together. If you four surround me and attack at once, maybe one of you will actually wound me.

You are shameless to sneak around like that, guys. Cowardly hiding spiritual pressure and stalking others isn’t something that captains should do.

I want to get stronger. I’ve finally found a worthy opponent. I can get stronger. I want to fight. I want to get stronger. It sure has been a while. To feel this desire again. I want to get stronger.

[To Ikkaku Madarame] Sorry but I’m not interested in weaklings who can’t fight any more. Besides, I don’t have any obligation to finish you off.

Bankai… Is for the weak!

Motivational Quotes from Zaraki Kenpachi

[To Maki Ichinose] If you really wanted to help that Kariya reach his goals, then you would have taken care of Ichigo first. But you chose to come after me. Wasn’t that a display of your own will? The power that you have gained was all in order to defeat me. That power comes from your own grudge! Why not try giving all your strength to that end?

Violence… If it is not solving all your problems, you simply aren’t using enough of it.

Sanity… what would I do with a useless thing like that?

Common sense? Worthless things like those, I haven’t had for as long as I can remember!

Oh… You can destroy the ground with the Reitsu from your sword? Not bad.

Am I gonna die here… Without being able to defeat you?

How do you two become captains? Stand up! You’re not dead yet, are you? If you want to die, then die like a captain and use your bankai before you die!!!
