1. Ringo Oginome Quotes
“I love the word “fate”. Because, you know how they talk about “fated encounters”? A single encounter can completely change your life. Such special encounters are not just coincidences. They’re definitely… fate. Of course, life is not all happy encounters. There are many painful, sad moments. But this is what I think: sad and painful things definitely happen for a reason. Nothing in this world is pointless.” – Ringo Oginome
2. Takakura Shouma Quotes
“I hate the word “fate.” Birth, encounters, partings, success and failures, fortune and misfortunes in life. If our lives are already set in stone by fate, then why are we even born? There are those born to wealthy families, those born to beautiful mothers, and those born into the middle of war or poverty. If that’s all caused by fate, then God is incredibly unfair and cruel. Because, ever since that day, none of us had a future and the only certain thing was that we wouldn’t amount to anything…” – Takakura Shouma
3. Takakura Kanba Quotes
“Why are people born? If people are born only to suffer the hard life, is it meant as some kind of punishment? Or a cynical joke? If that’s the case, animals that adhere to the survival strategies programmed in their DNA are far more elegant and simple. If there really is an existence worthy of being called a God, I want to ask him just one thing: Is there really fate in the universe? If a man ignored fate, and ignored his instincts and DNA to love someone else… Dear God, is he really human? Just wondering. I hate the word “fate”.” – Takakura Kanba
“Let’s share the fruit of fate.” – Takakura Kanba
4. Takakura Himari Quotes
“Listen up, you lowlifes who will never amount to anything!” – Takakura Himari
“It’s no use. It’s akin to love. Akin to the first kiss. It only works once.” – Takakura Himari
“As it turns out, living was a punishment. I’ve been punished in small doses, living as a Takakura. But, still, we were together. We took all the punishments, no matter how small and trivial. They’re all precious memories. Because the only reason I felt alive was because you two were there.” – Takakura Himari
“That’s when I realized! That I had become a child who would be found. So I broke into tears of happiness. No matter how far we’re separated, you two would definitely find me. It’s nice knowing someone will find you.” – Takakura Himari
5. Keiju Tabuki Quotes
“Yuri, I finally understand why you and I were the only ones left in this world. You and I were already lost children, but most children in the world are the same as us. That’s why, even once was enough: We both needed someone to tell us “I love you”.” – Keiju Tabuki
6. Sanetoshi Watase Quotes
“What do you think of the word “fate”? Does the concept of fate exists in reality? To put it simply, are people’s futures set in stone when they are born, never to be challenged? Do you believe in such a rule?” – Sanetoshi Watase
“Let’s see how many people you can kill with the power of love.” – Sanetoshi Watase
“None of you will ever escape the curse, as I could not. Residents of the boxes like you could never gain anything. You will all simply disappear without leaving anything behind in this world. You won’t even leave a fleck of dust behind – you will never be happy!” – Sanetoshi Watase
“I realized one morning… That I hate this world. This world is made of countless boxes. People bend and stuff their bodies into their own boxes. And stay there for the rest of their lives. And eventually, inside the box, they forget: what they looked like; what they loved; who they loved. That’s why I’m getting out of my box. I’m one of the chosen. That’s why I’m going to destroy this world.” – Sanetoshi Watase
“In the human world, truth and reality aren’t always one and the same. Humans just call their desires and ambitions as “truth”. Humans will even kill other humans if they have “truth” as an excuse.” – Sanetoshi Watase
“You see, there was this girl and she just appeared out of the blue. To my surprise, she was the same kind of person as me, and she had the same kind of eyes, at first sight, I realized I wasn’t a solitary existence in this world, I was so happy. That’s right, until I met her, I was all alone in this world, I had not a soul with whom to share the scenery before my eyes, and not a soul with whom to share the music in my ears. But…I heard the voices all over the world, I could hear the whole world crying out, “save me”. It’s true, thus I could see the optimal path of the world. But it saddened me, because the moment I saw her – I knew we were never meant to be, yes, she refused to side with me. She rejected me – the only person who could see the same scenery.” – Sanetoshi Watase
7. Momoka Oginome Quotes
“I think everything in this world is beautiful. The sky, birds, bugs, frogs, flowers, and even rocks. Because, if God created this world, could there really be anything dirty and ugly in it?” – Momoka Oginome
