“Favorite quote from any anime character”
The things I’m most likely to intentionally quote would be things that are like catchphrases or taglines, but that doesn’t mean those are actually my favorite lines.
Well, sometimes simple lines can really stick out to me too. There was one point in Dragon Ball where Goku said “You should do what’s right, not what you’re told”, which is a nice and blunt summary of something that I really wish more people understood.
And then there’s what Mewtwo says at the end of the first Pokemon movie, at least in the English dub.
“I see now that the circumstances of one’s birth are irrelevant. It is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are.”
Maybe it’s because it comes from a character we actually see learning the lesson, but somehow it just seems more meaningful than a lot of more eloquently worded similar quotes.
And with the likelihood that both cloning and artificial intelligence will be possible before the end of this century, having people get it before it becomes an issue could very well do some actual good in the world.
