Dark anime quotes remind you of the harsh truths in life. The kinds of truths we ignore because it’s too uncomfortable to deal with.

Or the kinds of things that are too deep for some people to handle, because of what it means if they accept it as reality.

While other dark quotes show the more disturbed side of human nature.

Let’s talk about and share all of them!
