I'm building a list of legendary anime quotes, anyone want to help out? If you can provide a clip for each quote, even better!
I'm trying to decide which quote to go with for Vegeta. Vegeta's Pride? (his speech to Goku before they fight during the Buu arc?) Vegeta's Respect? (when he admits Goku's better than him near the end of DBZ) or maybe something else?
@AnimeDefender: It made you cry? Are you sure you aren't talking about the scene where he sacrifices himself? Wait, damn it! That's another one! Now it's even harder to choose!
It depends on the anime, but for DBZ I think English clips would be better, yeah.
My list from a while back (Characters to Avoid Being Stuck in an Elevator With) should fit in with this section somehow.
Your link to your Bondage list is dead. I didn't know you created a panty list.
I wasn't stalking you enough in these past 2 weeks, I guess.
This list was inspired my little sister who made sharp observations when we watch anime shows together.
Beware of Mild Spoilers Ahead.
|1. Haruka Nanase|
A rival of Rin. He only swims free and quit competitive swimming after an event in middle school. When he defeated Rin in a race during middle school, he was sad that Rin was frustrated over his loss. Unlike Rin, Haruka wants to swim because he loves the water. In comparison, Rin wants to swim to better himself.
|2. Rin Matsuoka|
A rival of Haruka. He worked hard to achieve his dreams of becoming an Olympic swimmer by attending a school in Australia. A dream that his dead father could not ever reach.
|3. Rock Lee|
A rival of Neji Hyuga, and at the same time, he is somewhat a rival to Sasuke. Day in and day out, Rock Lee trains to become the best ninja at Taijutsu. He is an odd ninja who cannot perform any ninjutsu. His training came to the test when he fought Gaara in the Chuunin Exam. Despite his loss and spinal injury, Rock Lee continues his path as a ninja. <br> For Neji, Rock Lee strives to beat him. With every defeat, Rock Lee trains hard to get Neji to acknowledge his skills.
|4. Neji Hyuga|
A rival of Rock Lee. Armed with the Byakugan, his eyes, and Gentle Fist Techniques, Neji is a naturally talented ninja. At first, Neji believes that Naruto and Rock Lee will never reach his level because they don't have the skills to do it. Later on, Neji acknowledges Lee's strengths.
Kagura is a very athletic high school girl who works hard to be the best. She has never won against, Sakaki, however, and it drives her to pursue a one-sided rivalry with the taller girl.
Sakaki doesn't have much interest in sports despite her high talent for it. She views Kagura indifferently, but they become friends later in the series.
Azula is a prodigy firebender who is also skilled at lightning bending. As a little girl, she could perform firebending with ease.
Unlike Azula, Zuko could not firebend well during his childhood. With help from Uncle Iroh, he worked hard to perfect lightning bending
Ambiguously Brown is a trope that describes certain brown/dark skin characters whose facial, hair, and other characteristics are not clear enough to make out a specific ethnicity like Yoruichi. With her skin color and facial features, she could be black, Indian (Asian), or Japanese.
@SMXLR8: That's because there is no set stature for race in pokemon. Iris, Brock and Lenora all fit with this trope
I found this comment in the What makes Female Pokemon trainers so Expendable? and I look at the link. I was intrigued by this trope.
|1. Yoruichi Shihoin|
She could be black or dark skinned Japanese.
|2. Tier Halibel|
Same as Yoruichi.
She could be black or just dark skinned Japanese.
He could be Chinese or a light skin African American.
|5. Anthy Himemiya|
She could be Indian (referring to her Tilak) or black.
So yeah, I was told to showcase my list here, and I want to let folks know I am taking recommendations for this list. Anyway, Here is: God Dammit Shinji!!!
I've noticed many different animes contain a similar trope, and that is an inexperienced or traumatized male lead. Though the writers intend to show various different psyche, they unfortunately have the tendency to come off as annoying. I'm talking about the many male lead characters that you wish would step up to the plate, and be the badass that they so obviously could be; however, instead these guys hold tightly to the idiot ball and let us down time, and time, and time again! This list is dedicated to these inept bastards.
|1. Shinji Ikari|
The guy who just so happens to be this lists very namesake. To anyone who has ever watched any incarnation of Evangelion and has not wanted to strangle this little shit at some point has either more patience than Buddha or is a freaking liar. There have been so many times throughout the series that you just wish the guy would shut up and get in the freaking robot. Instead, he chooses to whine and let a lot of other people get hurt. Thing is Shinji your dad doesn't give a rat's ass about you, so how about you show him how awesome you are like you did in the fight against Zeruel...Oh wait you screwed that up too! God Dammit Shinji!
|2. Issei Hyoudou|
For all this guy's charm, or lack thereof, Issei Hyoudou has this miraculous untapped power that comes from a gauntlet on his arm. Though he has confidence he thinks more with the head between his legs rather than the one between his shoulders. This causes him to make very stupid decisions, or causes him to become a badass in a very different way. You would think though that if he actually focused on this power he has been given rather than trying to figure out how to be the "GREATEST HAREM KING EVA!!!" he may have by this point mopped the floor with a lot of his enemies. Then again, it's his overwhelming focus on T & A that causes his moments of badassery, so I guess it is how they say: "Whatever works"
|3. Suzaku Kururugi|
This guy here. A Shinji Ikari clone with a freaking death wish. We have no problem getting you in the robot do we buddy, nope that's not the problem. It's getting you to bring the damn thing back in one piece! I understand man that your daddy sucked, and that your best friend is supreme terrorist number one and he killed your waifu (seriously he could have just told her to make him a sandwich), but you take it to the next! You do prove your badassery time and again throughout the series, but your need to throw yourself down in front of the chopping block every chance you get has literally made the executioner feel uncomfortable and he had to take therapy.
|4. Takeru Ohyama|
I hate to say this dude, but your series doesn't really make much sense. I get that you unintentionally developed a harem, and your only reason for going to this school was that you get to look at booby bungalows instead of a sausage fest, but next time man read the damn pamphlet! Also, I get that you don't really understand this, but you have some sort of secret badass power, that pretty much makes you more awesome than anyone else at that school except for possibly your girlfr...I mean best childhood friend. Unfortunately, You don't know you have this power or really how to use it, but WHY DON'T YOU! You could be awesome man. T_T
...CAN SOMEBODY PLEASE GAG THIS BITCH!!!
|6. Eren Yeager|
I feel a little bad for lumping you in this category, but toward the end of the second arc you kind of deserved your placement. Eren you have a lot to be admired. Your determined, you have an amazing work eithic, you focus your anger into a creative outlet instead of letting your traumatizing past turn you into a whiny sap. You had several moments of badassery throughout Attack on Titan, but WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED MAN!!! To be honest the writers of the show happened to you. Like during the assault of Trost, I was totally expecting you to wreck the titan's with your new skills...well that was an Effin disaster wasn't it! Also next time if your comrades ask you if you trust them...SAY HELL NO AND BITE YOURSELF DAMMIT!!!
You never really learned not to play with fire didn't you? How many times have you screwed things up by playing around with the with the bad guys instead of going ahead and finishing them. I have to admit that you had several awesome moments, and you really are my favorite character of the series (next to Vegeta); however, your goofing off really screwed the pooch didn't it. Seriously I can't think of a better way to show my Dad how much I appreciate everything he's done for me by forcing him to sacrifice himself because I was too arrogant to dispose of a walking pitri dish. Also way to show that you're the most powerful being in the universe by playing with the pink taffy gangster so long that it actually eats your ass! Way to go Gohan!
|8. Ash Ketchum|
Um...man I don't feel right picking on you. When there's one guy who's been screwed by the writers, you buddy are like the epitome of that scenario. You do have your moments of badassary through out the several incarnations of your series, but it's like you are perpetually stuck at eleven. A guy like you should be in the Elite four, started your own gym, or heck at least have actually dated someone! ...I just can't man. Ash Ketchum, even though you are on the "God Dammit Shinji" list for a lot of the dumbass decisions you made. I salute you for standing strong in the face of the enemy known as "enfranchisement" and enduring the torture so Poke'mon can continue to bring joy to us all. I salute you indeed. T_T
