By Akash

At first, it sounds stupid. Life lessons from anime quotes? How childish. But as time passes we realize anime are not just brutal fights, magical beings, or high school romance – they are so much more.

Aside from the excitement and fun, some Anime characters also have the most powerful, smartest, wisest quotes about dream, life, pain, and happiness that are really worth to follow.

They guide us through our life and without even realizing it we start believing in their messages, words that inspire us, and make us a better person.

And it’s no overemphasis to say some quotes are motivational and relatable. And that’s exactly why it helps you relate, feel the emotion, and develop an appreciation for certain animes.

That being said here are some of my favorite quotes from some famous anime that may help you to be inspired.

obito uchiha quotes

I hate nice girls. Just exchanging greetings with them will get them on your mind. Start texting each other, and your heart will be set aflutter. If they call you, you’re done for. Enjoy staring at your logs and grinning like a fool. However, I won’t get fooled again. That’s what your kind calls kindness. If you’re nice to me, you’re nice to others. I always end up nearly forgetting that. Reality is cruel, so I’m sure lies are a form of kindness. Thus, I say kindness itself is also a lie. I always ended up with these expectations. And I always ended up with these misunderstandings. And before I knew it, I stopped hoping. A highly trained loner is once bitten, twice shy. As a veteran on this battlefield of life, I’ve gotten used to losing. That’s why I always hate nice girls. – Hachiman from My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU
