Mondo Oowada Quotes

“It’s okay to feel depressed. It takes time to overcome things. And then, by taking that time, you just start moving forward again. That’s just what humans do.” – Mondo Oowada


Punpun Onodera Quotes

“I always believed that everyone in this world was far nicer and smarter than me. That no matter how unlikeable they seemed to be, they still had a good conscience and had justifiable circumstances for acting the way they did. That’s why I hated myself for being so timid and depressed when I didn’t even have any good reason for doing so. …But now I see that there actually are people who’re despicable in every way and don’t blink twice at ruining another’s life.” – Punpun Onodera


Shizuka Hiratsuka Quotes

“It is impossible to not hurt someone. Humans unconsciously hurt others by simply existing. Whether you are alive or dead, you keep hurting people. Getting involved will hurt them, but trying not to get involved might hurt them too. But if it’s someone you don’t care about, you won’t notice you’ve hurt them. What’s important is your awareness of it. It’s because you care about them, that you feel like you’ve hurt them. Caring about someone means being resolved to the fact that you’ll hurt them. The more people care for each other, the farther out of reach certain things get. But that’s not something to be sad about, I think it’s probably something to be proud of.” – Shizuka Hiratsuka


Kaoru Yamazaki Quotes

“People like us aren’t qualified to be involved in a dramatic incident such as a suicide. No matter how depressed you are or how much pain you’re in, you have to return to your routine, daily life. Even if you don’t come back, you’ll just end up dying in vain. A dramatic death isn’t befitting of us.” – Kaoru Yamazaki


Iruka Umino Quotes

“Lord Jiraiya only had praise for you. He was always boasting about you, saying you were like his own grandchild. He had faith that you were the one who would inherit his will, and truly believed that you would one day be a great Hokage. Lord Jiraiya will always watch over you. Even this very minute, he’s watching from somewhere. He wouldn’t be happy seeing you sad like this. So…be your usual self, the one he praised so much. Don’t stay depressed forever. For Lord Jiraiya himself, one of the Legendary Sannin…acknowledged you as his promising student!” – Iruka Umino


Detective Conan Quotes

“It’s just like changes in the notes and passports. You may find it hard to adjust to at the beginning, but you get used to it eventually. Time is very depressing after all… Both happiness and sadness fade away with time.” – Detective Conan


Edward Elric Quotes

“I’m such a hopeless idiot. All this time and I haven’t grown up one bit. I thought maybe the rain would wash away some of this gloom that’s been following me… but right now, every drop that hits my face is even more depressing.” – Edward Elric


Mirajane Strauss Quotes
