Bleach Anime Quotes


Ichigo Kurosaki is an ordinary high schooler—until his family is attacked by a Hollow, a corrupt spirit that seeks to devour human souls. It is then that he meets a Soul Reaper named Rukia Kuchiki, who gets injured while protecting Ichigo's family from the assailant. To save his family, Ichigo accepts Rukia's offer of taking her powers and becomes a Soul Reaper as a result. However, as Rukia is unable to regain her powers, Ichigo is given the daunting task of hunting down the Hollows that plague their town. However, he is not alone in his fight, as he is later joined by his friends—classmates Orihime Inoue, Yasutora Sado, and Uryuu Ishida—who each have their own unique abilities. As Ichigo and his comrades get used to their new duties and support each other on and off the battlefield, the young Soul Reaper soon learns that the Hollows are not the only real threat to the human world.

Bleach: Do we really have to fight, Yama-jii?
Bleach: I told you before, Komamura. The only paths that I see with these eyes are the ones not dyed with blood. Those paths are the paths to justice. So whichever path I choose...Is justice.
Bleach: [holds up juice box] How do you drink from this?
Bleach: I can't deny, I don't know very much about Rukia. That's not the point, I might not risk my life for her, but Ichigo wants to save her life and that's all I need to know. What may seem like an unworthy cause to you is more than enough reason for me.
Bleach: Let me tell you about the difference between you and me. It's like the story of the monkey trying to capture the moon. However close he thinks he is to the moon, it's still just the reflection of the moon in the middle of the lake. No matter how he struggles to capture that "moon", he inevitably sinks to the bottom of that lake to no avail. You will never reach me.
Bleach: [in reply to Shunsui Kyōraku] It's true, I know nothing about her (Rukia). It might not be quite enough for me to risk my own life over. But...Ichigo wants to save her. That reason is enough for me.
Bleach: [To Orihime, when she refuses to eat] Shall I force it down your throat? Or would you rather be strapped down and given IV's?
Bleach: In my mind this jacked-up sideways ridiculousness is the normal state?
Bleach: In my mind this jacked-up sideways ridiculousness is the normal state?
Bleach: Whenever you fight from this point on, there is one thing you must never do. Which die alone.
Bleach: [to Komamura] Don't make me laugh. Aizen-sama has given me something far more powerful than a bankai.
Bleach: She beat me like I owed her money.
Bleach: That’s just the way it is. Change is inevitable. Instead of resisting it, you’re better served simple going with the flow.
Bleach: No choice, then. Before you become intoxicated by your own power, I shall show you a decisive power gap that you could not overcome in a millennium of struggle.
Bleach: It's always a lot easier to let something fall apart, than it is to try to hold it together.
Bleach: Oops. They found us.
Bleach: [to Choe Neng Poww, as the giant Arrancar charges a Cero after making a comment on Komamura's strength] I see...Then I shall stop that yawn in its tracks. Bankai.
Bleach: Loyalty to someone is different from depending on them.
Bleach: I already told can't kill me with that sword anymore!
Bleach: I never ask them to trust me at all. I told them to come with me but I never told them to trust me. And I always tell them not to trust anyone, including myself. But sadly, there are not many strong enough to do that.
Bleach: You are right. I have not yet introduced myself. I am Captain of the Seventh Division Komamura Sajin. And though it shames me, I am just as you say -- A meager worm of a man.
Bleach: Do you remember the first time you walked? No. So you weren't conscious of it. Then why did you walk? Everyone was born knowing how to walk. It's called instinct. That's what this boy reminds me of. He knows he can achieve bankai, so he continues.
Bleach: I... Despise the way you fight. Without ever lifting your own hand... To steal bonds of camraderie and torture opponents is the height of cowardice. It is a lack of shame deserving of death. I am here. Strike me down. I shall kill you and cast you aside... Before you finish swinging your blade.
Bleach: Justice is not something that you can express in words.
Bleach: Just how many times must I strain my voice before it will reach you? And yet, nowhere in this world can there be anyone who knows me better than you.
Bleach: [To Starrk, about Lilynette] That child with you... Can you send her somewhere else? I can't really go all out with her there.
Bleach: Those who know despair, once knew hope. Those who know loss, once knew love.
Bleach: I am sane. It's this world that's crazy.
Bleach: [to Arrancar Gantenbainne Mosqueda] It seems that my power is more akin to yours than that of a Shinigami or a Quincy.
Bleach: No matter how many times I do this, it results in a wonderful reaction from you, Ichigo!
Bleach: [After Gin offers to kill some Arrancars] No thanks, for that would be boring.
Bleach: [To Orihime] You're just in time. Watch closely. This is the moment that the man you've put your hope in will lose his life.
Bleach: Can't you tell, Aizen? You no longer have a place to run away to.
Bleach: *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!
Bleach: Have you been out on the window ledge all this time, in plain sight? What if the neighbors report a silver haired elementary student burglar?
Bleach: Cute, cute Nanao-chaaaan. Lovely, lovely Nanao -- AHHHHHHH!!!!
Bleach: Sovereignty means absolutely nothing in front of me.
Bleach: I'm going to keep getting closer and closer to you. And not just day after day, oh no. It's going to happen much faster than that! See I'm already closer to you than I was a moment ago. And I'll keep getting closer and closer to you, until I swallow you up and then, you'll disappear. Things are not turning out well for you at all, are they? (laughs) See you around.
Bleach: Death and pain are just a small price to pay for the enjoyment of battle!
Bleach: Well done. That time, your fang definitely touched me.
Bleach: Playing is more important. You can work any time.
Bleach: You shy, little boy.
Bleach: The right to choose life or death lies with the victor. And the victor of this battle is me.
Bleach: If there is such a thing like happiness in this world, it should resemble the endless nothingness. Nihility is having nothing and having nothing to lose. If that isn't happiness... then what is?
Bleach: [To Orihime, after she had being taken from Ichigo once again] A girl like you should smile more often. Overcast skies blot out the sun, and that always brings people's spirits down. So why not let the sun shine...For just a while longer?
Bleach: I hate Shinigami.
Bleach: There's a lot of products that you can buy with money...but my love is the only limited product that only you can have.
Bleach: Do you know what a scientist fears most in this world above all else? It's oblivion, my friend. A scientist measures our lives in the ways we develop and expand our knowledge through myriad variations. Nothing can take its place. It's our very soul. I have done the worst thing one scientist can do to another: I have altered your thought process. When my drug takes effect, you will find your mind has lost the ability to think.
Bleach: Admiration is the furthest thing from understanding.
Bleach: It's not anyone's fault that Masaki died. It's just that... the woman I fell in love with... was a woman who could die protecting her son. And don't forget. You are the guy... the woman I loved gave her life to protect.

Bleach: Ichigo Kurosaki, all of the battles you've fought, were all part of my plan.
Bleach: [to Nemu about Uryuu. Nemu is currently attempting to restrain Uryuu so Mayruri can heal him, but she is unknowingly smothering him with her breasts] Yes, Nemu. Just smother him with those things. Worst case, he dies happy.
Bleach: If you wanna talk to me, do it while I cut you to pieces. But, I'm not gonna hold back one bit! Bankai!
Bleach: Every week, when it is time, they stick to the TV. They watch my actions in the comfort of their families after dinner. Children watch my actions and their hearts leap. They see me stand up to evil spirits and... they know what courage is! Do you understand, boy? With them watching, I can't run away from the enemy
Bleach: It's always a lot more easier to let something fall apart than it is to try to hold it together.
Bleach: (To Ichigo Kurosaki) You are a fool, Ichigo Kurosaki. You willingly seek to challenge an opponent so much more powerful than you that it strikes a primal fear into your being. Incomprehensible. If this is the work of the 'heart' that you people speak of, then it is because you possess this 'heart' that you humans bring hurt upon yourself, because you possess this 'heart' that you lose your lives
Bleach: Your blade will never be able to touch me. Ever.
Bleach: Remember that a sword held by someone who is about to die… will never be able to protect anything.
Bleach: Even saying they were just a bunch of fools would suffice. So why can't you? Were it me... I would be angry at the ignorance of those who would enter Hueco Mundo... without even testing their own power.
Bleach: We can't waste time worrying about the what-if's. Rukia's execution date has been changed to noon tomorrow. So what? If the deadline has been changed to tomorrow... I'll just have to finish today!
Bleach: The Commander-General's rather violent today, wouldn't you say?
Bleach: Put away your sword and you shall live...unless you're still dreaming about defeating me. Did you forget, or did it just never occur to you...that I have Bankai as well?
Bleach: [lying about coming to save Rukia] Just passing by. No big deal.... Well, if you must know, I felt a sudden urge to go to Sunflower Seams, that 24-hour dressmaking shop. There's a branch near here. That's where I was headed at this late hour. I certainly didn't bring this bag with me just so I would have an excuse for suddenly leaving the house because I sensed the spirit energy of a shinigami, all right?
Bleach: Lately, I've been looking at these two guys only. As expected, I see flowers when there are women in the workplace... the atmosphere!
Bleach: I think you and I have different concepts of beauty. I was taught that it's beautiful to survive, unsightly or not.
Bleach: Calling me a coward, eh? At least say it so I can hear it...
Bleach: [thinking as Nel tells her to cheer for Ichigo] That's right. To begin with, I came here just thinking I wanted to protect everyone. But when I heard they had come to save me, I couldn't help but feel a little glad, just a bit in my heart. When I look at Kurosaki-kun in that mask, I think that he might not have come here to save me at all. Even though it's wrong, they shouldn't be going that far for me.
Bleach: I've always been afraid...Always been pretending to follow you closely, always pretending to sharpen my fangs, when the truth is...I'm scared to death just treading on your shadow.
Bleach: That's enough, Soifon. You remind me of myself. I even think of you sometimes as my little sister.
Bleach: There are two kinds of fights. As long as we place ourselves in battle, we must always know the difference, a fight to defend life or a fight to defend pride.
Bleach: Uncoil the seas and heavens, Nejibana!
Bleach: We don't look any different from those shinigami. We just dress diferently.
Bleach: You and I, our levels are as distant as the earth from the heavens. Must I spell it out for you? I have discarded my left arm, discarded my left leg, and yet even then I have not nearly lowered myself to your level.
Bleach: Only underlings get caught up in the matter of style and lose the battle. A captain can't afford such indulgences. Don't try to be a good kid. Whether you own somebody or they own you. The moment you start a fight, you are wrong in either way.
Bleach: Farewell, warrior of the sky. I pray... you don't forgive me.
Bleach: It's impossible to feel exactly the same as someone else... but when you both care for each other, your hearts are able to draw a little closer together. I think that's what it means to make your hearts as one.
Bleach: Discouraging, isn't it? It's always easier to tear down than to build... And much more difficult to tie than to untie.
Bleach: But don't forget... as long as you're in my division, I'm on your side until death and beyond.
Bleach: The curtain that falls down at the end, shall be pulled down by the blade of my sword.
Bleach: How I envy the feeble and frail... If I were inept, I could simply blend in, not stand out, and get lost in the crowd. I yearned to be just another sheep... And if that was asking too much I'd settle for... walking among the lions.
Bleach: [to Yuzu] Ah! It's okay, Yuzu, don't cry! Daddy will show you something really hilarious!
Bleach: You can't carry me AND dodge at the same time, Tetsuzaemon!
Bleach: You are fighting out of obligation, not out of hatred. You will never reach me like that. Battle without hatred is like a bird without wings. You’ll never defeat anyone like that. You powerless friends are just weights that will break your legs.
Bleach: I was glad you did not pretend to be a saint and claim to love the world despite everything. That is why I decided that I would be your true friend. I would accept your sorrow. And I would share my joy. If you strayed I would reprimand you. If you made mistakes, I would forgive you. And when you found yourself in trouble, I would be there for you. So that you who learn to hate the world, would come to love it once more.
Bleach: Exactly when did I say that I do this because I am a shinigami? My killing you is no other reason than the fact that you... Pointed your blade [view shifts to Rukia] at my pride.
Bleach: Battles aren't supposed to be heroic affairs. They are not supposed to be fun or exciting, to us every battle is filled with despair, they are dark, horrifying, grizzly. We should fear warfare, avoid it always and whenever possible choose the path of peace.
Bleach: No man's life is worth more than another! If you're gonna put your life on the line, you do it as equals! I don't care if you're brothers, or master and apprentice, or whatever! You should only die for a guy who'd die for you! There's nothing honorable about throwing your life away as though it's nothing! That's just showing off like a kid.
Bleach: Oh? I thought I severed your body from the waist-down, but...It seems the cut was too shallow.
Bleach: I thought I told you. If you see your allies losing, that's your chance. Don't step between them. Take the enemy down from behind. And if the enemy's so strong, you can't even do that, then just watch your allies get killed. That's what it means to be Special Forces.
Bleach: Nanao-chan is last place!
Bleach: [to Karin] Do as your heart desires! Jump into your father's bosom!
Bleach: A warrior who has lost his ability to fight is only going to be in the way.
Bleach: *to Ichigo* I thought you were interesting before, but now you're just a creepy kid.
Bleach: Why didn't you take me with you!? Yoruichi?
Bleach: [to Ichigo] You're a Soul Reaper and I'm a Hollow. Whichever side loses will be massacred! It's been that way for over a thousand years! Who needs any more reason than that?! Now bring it! The last man standing gets to go home alive! That's all there is to it!
Bleach: Ichigo... I hate the rain. Rain falls in this world, too. When your heart is in chaos, this sky becomes clouded. When you are sad, rain falls so terribly easy. Can you understand...the horrible feeling of being pelted by rain when you're all alone in this solitary world? If only to stop that rain, I shall lend you any strength. If you trust in me, I won't let a single drop of rain fall from that sky. Ichigo, trust are not fighting alone.
Bleach: All of the Arrancar follow me... because they see me as fearless and the only individual who can actually bring forth the new world... the new future where you can belong. Without me, that dream can't be fulfilled and without me the gotei 13 will destroy you all... Do you see it now from my point of view?
Bleach: 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!
Bleach: If it's not enough to believe in justice, then I will become justice. I will seek out all evil in this world and wipe them out like the clouds in the sky. I swear I will...For justice.
Bleach: You destroyed those Menos Grandes. That's enough for me! I have decided to fight by your side! I won't accept no as an answer, masked ones!
Bleach: A grenade that's thrown should not come back.
Bleach: [after Hisagi thanks him] Aren't you clever? Is that supposed to be sarcastic?
Bleach: [After getting hit by Yammy Llargo's Bala] You mean do I have a defence? Truth is, I’ve never really had any plans against any attacks. I just knew I had to win so I did. That’s my plan. I don’t care if you’re higher ranked than the other Espadas' were, to me it’s all the same. I’ve gotta defeat you so I’ll find a way to do it. Simple.
Bleach: I had no intention of deceiving anyone. It's just that none of you could understand...My true self.
Bleach: If it is because of what you call a heart, then it is the heart that causes you humans pain. It is because of your heart that you will die.
Bleach: My, my. So dangerous.
Bleach: Well, you sure have weird ways of doing things. The one who taught me how to give your name out to he whom you are about to kill also said... that it was always the last lesson he taught his students. That way, if you do end a person's life... at the very least, they will know the name of the one who slashed their mortal coil. I'm of the 11th Division, 3rd seat, Madarame Ikkaku! You're right, there's no reason for me to hear your name, because the most important thing is that you know mine. After all, it is the name of the man... who will send you to your death!
