55 anime quotes that are absolute classics

Let’s take a trip down memory lane.

I grew up as an anime fan and it allowed me to experience great quotes from the most popular shows. It was something that wasn’t as popular as a kid as it is now, so knowing someone else who shared my fandom was not an option.


Now that so many people have realized how well stories can be told in these amazing shows, I feel like more people are familiar with a genre that hasn’t enjoyed the respect it deserves for years.

I say this because I have compiled a list of some of my favorite quotes from old and new anime to reveal some of the wonderful lines I have lived through. Please let me know about some of them that I missed, and share your personal favorites in the comments below.
