Bakemonogatari Anime Quotes


Koyomi Araragi, a third-year high school student, manages to survive a vampire attack with the help of Meme Oshino, a strange man residing in an abandoned building. Though being saved from vampirism and now a human again, several side effects such as superhuman healing abilities and enhanced vision still remain. Regardless, Araragi tries to live the life of a normal student, with the help of his friend and the class president, Tsubasa Hanekawa. When fellow classmate Hitagi Senjougahara falls down the stairs and is caught by Araragi, the boy realizes that the girl is unnaturally weightless. Despite Senjougahara's protests, Araragi insists he help her, deciding to enlist the aid of Oshino, the very man who had once helped him with his own predicament. Through several tales involving demons and gods, Bakemonogatari follows Araragi as he attempts to help those who suffer from supernatural maladies.

Bakemonogatari: A fake with more power than the real thing is more dangerous than the real thing.
Bakemonogatari: If I may suggest, I recommend my waking you up every morning wearing nothing but an apron. Then I can cook you breakfast. Isn't it a man's fantasy to watch that from behind?

Bakemonogatari: I am not going to take sides, I am neutral. I am talking about standpoints here, that is all.

Actually, there is not a right one in the first place. It is just about who is easier to agree with.
Bakemonogatari: The first requirement of being a hero isn't being right. It's being strong. That's why the hero always wins.
Bakemonogatari: In our society, letting others find out that you're a nice person is a very risky move. It's extremely likely that someone would take advantage of that.
Bakemonogatari: Oh, right, Senjougahara. I've got a great story to tell you. It's about that man who tried to rape you way back. He was hit by a car and died in a place with no connection to you, in an event with no connection to you. Without any drama at all. [...] That's the lesson for you here: You shouldn't expect your life to be like the theater.
Bakemonogatari: If praying does not work, and words are ineffective... what's left is to fight.
Bakemonogatari: Oddities are the world itself. They're linked to the world, unlike living beings. Science alone cannot shed light upon them, as there will always be people who'll be afraid of vampires. Although all forms of darkness could be lit up, darkness will never cease to exist.
Bakemonogatari: I told you, anything is OK, like saying you want me to end all my sentences with "nyu" for a week. Or that you want me to not wear underwear to school for a week. Or that you want me to wake you up every morning for a week, wearing nothing but an apron.
Bakemonogatari: There's no reason a fake can't do what the real thing would. And it's possible for a fake to be more real than the real thing.
