koyomi araragi quotes 1

“If they find out what you did there, a lot of people will say a lot of things to you. Some will say you did the right thing. And some will say you did the wrong thing. But that’s not what matters. No matter what anyone says, you don’t have to worry. Because you didn’t do the right thing, and you didn’t do the wrong thing. It was all part of being young.” – Koyomi Araragi

“It isn’t just “others”. Not “others”. It’s my Family. I’ll force my ideals on my family. And since they’re family, I’ll lie to them. I’ll deceive them. I’ll cause them trouble. I’ll make them worry. I’ll owe them things, things I’ll never be able to repay. However, I think that’s okay. If you say that being an impostor is evil, then I will shoulder the burden of that evil. If lying is a bad thing, then I’m fine being the bad person. I don’t need them to like me. I’m fine with being the worst kind of person.” – Koyomi Araragi
