Some Memorable Manga Lines?

I’d think everyone knows some line from anime or manga that you just can’t seem to forget right? I’ve introduced some memorable lines from the previous post “Most Favorite Anime Lines” Chosen by the Japanese Users“, but since there are just so many lines, I don’t think I’ve cover all of them. Recently the poll “The Memorable Manga Lines?” came out and became somewhat of a topic, so I’d like to introduce some line I missed last time along with some Japanese reaction toward it.

First let’s see the poll’s result!

The Memorable Manga Lines? (from Niconico News)
  • I will drive them out!! (Attack on Titans)

    It made an impression on me since it’s not like I’ll kill them all! also it’s a line you can use in everyday situation. (Female, 27)
  • “Is it only me…? Who think we can still win this……” (Slam Dunk)

    Whenever in trouble it pops into my mind. Also that kind expression really fit that line. (Female, 34)
  • “I have no regret for my life” (First of the North Star)

    I feel that I’ve finally understand just how great Lou is with that line. (Female, 19)
  • “I will not retreat, flatter, or look back.” (First of the North Star)

    Thouzer’s famous line. (Male, 42)
  • “Don’t try to pick the ‘right’ choice when you’re confused. Just pick the funner one.” (Space Brothers)

    It somehow encourage me. (Female, 30)
  • “There is something in human’s heart that’s even greater than god…I’m just following that” (Yu-Gi-Oh)

    I just think if we all believe in something like that, then there wouldn’t be all these religious turmoils. (Female, 34)
  • “Hard work doesn’t always get paid off. However! All the successful people work hard for it” (Fighting Spirit)

    Something that make sense. (Male, 42)
  • “What a guy, killing 5 people. I try so hard just saving 1 person” (Black Jack)

    Famous line from Black Jack. There are lots of other famous line, but this line describe the main character very well. (Female, 26)
  • “Mudamudamudamuda…..” (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure)

    Cool. (Female, 24)

Arthur of classic Slam Dunk Andou-sensei and line from Mitsui Hisashi is so memorable, it sets the standard of famous line. And I believe many people knows those line since it was adopted into animation.
