    In this thread, feel free to post quotes from series that you find inspiring, deep, meaningful, beautiful, or anything like that!

    I'd like to share a poem from the manga Inugami. The original author is Hokazono Masaya, and the brilliant translator is Tamako Kageyama.

    I take a first step
    In my hands a gem, preciously held
    I take a first step
    In my heart a place, preciously hidden
    A miniscule garden, made of a thousand flowers
    I take a first step
    In my heart a thought, preciously coiled
    Fluctuating faces of a dubious future
    Smiling faces of a nostalgic past
    I take a first step under a bismuth sky
    Sinuously moving, streaked barbed wire
    I take a first step in a city of green, the infinity of space is reflected in its centre
    Beyond the forest of impenetrable green, a dormant sanctuary, lapis lazuli
    A calm meadow, bathed in moonlight
    I take a second step, another, ad infinitum
    The amber outlines of a hill rising in the sky of innumerable stars
    From a heart of crystal shine a thousand fires
    Thus ends my voyage.


    Isn't it gorgeous? <3

    That's awesome red, this is the lyrics to the song at the end of Origin: Spirits of the Past.... song is just amazing and after everything the Agito went through it was an amazing way to end the movie.

    Ai No Merodi by Kokia (in English translation)

    You're just like the sunlight through the leaves
    Gave me the happy smile, courage and will to live on

    The warmth of the heart in my memory
    Is beyond all the trammels

    It's all because of you, that I can live like myself

    Singing I was born to love you is the proof of my love
    And you trust that this feeling will be sent to you, and that you are still alive

    Pity, happiness, sorrow, vexation, regret, anxiety
    Make up the melody of love

    Before I untied the knot in my heart
    We were separated, but I have no regrets though I was sad
    'Keep the love alive' I said this to myself
    In order to keep the promise alive

    The melody is surrounded by the love, fly to the sky

    In that spring of overflowing love, to show you something more important than you have seen with your own eyes
    This love for you is so deep, through time and space,
    Beyond life itself, this is the song of my love

    I touch your body and feel your breath, 'are you asleep already?'
    If you are, then I whisper 'I love you'

    It's all because of you, that I can live like myself
    Singing I was born to love you is the proof of my love
    And you trust that this feeling will be sent to you, and that you are still alive

    In that spring of overflowing love, to show you something more important than you have seen with your own eyes

    The flow of the melody when I met you
    Still exist in this shaking time

    Pity, happiness, sorrow, vexation, regret, anxiety
    Make up the melody of love

    Pity, happiness, sorrow, vexation, regret, anxiety
    Make up the melody of love

    Here's some of my favorite quotes from Fairy Tail. These quotes, even though part of an anime, speak truths loudly and that's probably why I like the show so much. If Fairy Tail was a real place with real people, I would hope that I would get to spend my time with these people who find wisdom and strength where others would just give up.

    Great quotes from Fairy Tail:

    Gray:
    "I won't run, I will stand and look ahead to what I must do. I must face the fear. I won't let it control me anymore. I will use my heart that holds my courage and my bravery to move me forward to what I must do."

    Gray:
    "Sadness is just another wall that blocks you from moving on. I know it's hard to get past it, but you got to break through."

    Erza:
    Moving on doesn't mean you forget about things. It just means you have to accept what's happened and continue living."

    Lucy:
    Don't judge me unless you have looked through my eyes, experienced what I went through, and cried as many tears as me. Until then, back-off! cause you have no idea."

    Mirajane:
    "People cry not because they're weak, it's because they've been strong for too long."

    Natsu:
    "Never look at your life as something insignificant, never forget those friends of yours that loved you."

    Awesome quotes! Also, thanks for the translation of that song! I have that song on a CD, and it's just beatiful, so it's great to be able to understand the lyrics.

    From Black Butler... a lullaby:

    The white dog is a good dog, good dog good.
    The black dog is a bad dog, bad dog bad.
    He'll eat your flesh down to the bone, down to the bone
    He'll gobble you up until you're gone, until you're gone
    The white dog is a good dog, good dog good.
    Lullaby the sun sets, lullaby goodnight.
    The white dog is a good dog, good dog good.

    Creepy, but good. Dark show, but for some reason I really like the chant like lullaby.
