One Piece, Naruto, FMA: these five anime quotes that all anime fans know by heart

We have recently seen that the comics had become, so to speak, works of art, and in a few years, it could well be the same for the sleeves, given the current notoriety of some of these japanese works. And with the animated adaptations, this has helped to spread and democratize certain citations now almost legendary. Here you will find a non-exhaustive selection of cult phrases from anime which are just as much.

1) “Omae wa mou shindeiru”

Become a real meme on the internet, the famous phrase comes from Hokuto no Ken (known to us as Ken the Boy Who Lived) de Buronson et Tetsuo Hara. Having gone viral thanks to its anime adaptation, the phrase takes on its context as the hero, Kenshiro, finds himself in a post-nuclear apocalyptic world. In a scene that is now cult, our hero, an expert in martial arts, manages to save a young girl from the hands of a dangerous individual. After hitting him with his famous technique, “Hokuto Hyakuretsu Ken”, Kenshiro ends the fight with this amazing phrase : “You don’t know it yet, but you are already dead” (lit.: “Omae Wa Mou Shindeiru”), to which the enemy responds with the equally cult “Nani?!” (lit.: “What”), before disappearing in an unexpected explosion.

2) “Kaizoku ou ni, ore wa naru”

If the expression “King of the Pirates” has become so widespread, it is thanks to Eiichiro Oda and One Piece. Has become a real saga on its own and has been going on for several decades, Oda’s work is now a classic of the genre. Heard countless times from the protagonist Monkey D. Luffy, aka Mugiwara no Luffy (lit.: Straw Hat Luffy), this phrase has become the signature of this saga that has endured through generations, rallying more and more people to the cause of the Straw Hat crew. At least now everyone knows how to say in Japanese “The Pirate King will be me”.

3) “Sore ga ore no nindo da”

Another phrase made very famous by the protagonist of Masashi Kishimoto’s work, I obviously want to talk about Naruto, from the eponymous manga. Considered one of the “Big Three” anime of the years 2000-2010, a whole generation of fans accompanied Naruto in his adventures and his evolution, and the work met with major success all over the world. The main character, Naruto Uzumaki, is recognized for his joyful character but above all for his determination, making him a perfect example of the hero of shonen. Thus, one of the most iconic phrases of the character probably remains: “I never go back on my word. Such is my nindo” (lit.: “massugu jibun no kotoba wa magenee. sore ga ore no nindo da”).

4) “Sakujo”

L’anime Death Note gave us plenty of memorable moments, from the potato chip scene in Light Yagami’s room to the tragic end of FBI agent Naomi Misora. But some of the most memorable scenes are those of Mikami Teru, pure fanatic of Kira whom he considers a god descended on Earth. When he therefore receives the famous Death Note to fulfill “his destiny”, we witness that known in the industry as “Sakujogasm”, when Mikami uses the Death God Notebook quite intensely, repeating “Sakujo” (lit.: “Elimination”) multiple times.

5) “Shut up! It’s not normal that people can drink something that comes out of a cow’s udder! Plus it’s all white!”

Even if it is certainly not the most striking moment of Fullmetal Alchemist, this passage echoes one of the funniest gags of the anime, but which is actually not there by chance. Indeed, when we look at the author, Hiromu Arakawa, we notice that this mangaka comes from a family of farmers, and that she approaches this kind of theme more deeply in other of her works like Noble Peasants Where Silver Spoon. But it’s clear that as funny as that time with Ed in the hospital might be, it does not match some incredibly cult scenes, such as that of Ed and Al having found the famous answer to the phrase “One is all. All is one”.
