Only two days after today! And this prompt should be much easier than majority of them on this list.

Okay, so I’m going to split this up into relatable quotes, and inspirational quotes, since multiple come to mind immediately.

Inspirational Anime Quotes

“I don’t really care whether you guys recognize me as a boy or a girl. In my opinion, it’s more important for a person to be recognized for who they are, rather than what sex they are.”

-Haruhi Fujioka to the Host Club Ouran High School Host Club

“We should love someone other than ourselves, you must know that. We should be able to protect, as well as be protected. It’s important.”

I’m going to leave it at just those five, since I want to talk a little bit about them. The first three are definitely what I feel almost on a daily basis, as I’m a strong introvert. I hate going into work, knowing that for anywhere from 4-8 hours I’ll be forced to socialize with people who may be rude or impatient with me. It makes me almost feel sick to my stomach when I’m driving there. Which is funny, since I want to become a teacher. But, I think that’ll be a bit different, since I want to teach English, and it’s something I’m passionate about. In this case, I don’t care whether the store I work at get credit sign-ups or not. I don’t care if I sell a ton of merchandise or not. Horrible for a retail worker to say, I know, but it’s how I feel my entire shift. And those quotes kind of embody how I feel about it.

The bottom two are less cynical, and mean a lot to me.

Haruhi has been a huge influence on me, with the way I feel about myself. I have been struggling with my image for years. I don’t know how I feel about the way I dress. I generally wear skinny jeans, anime/pop culture T-shirts, and a baggy hoodie. But then sometimes I like wearing sweaters and have become a bit more fond of dresses recently. I cut my hair somewhat short, and I dye it weird colors. I know I generally don’t come across as feminine, and I want to be okay with that. But I don’t really see myself as masculine either, though I love ties and button-up dress shirts. This quote reminds me that it doesn’t matter how I dress, or how I come across to other people in my appearance, as long as I am a decent person. I think I am, so this quote really rings in my head sometimes.

Haruhi looks amazing in both feminine and masculine clothing, and that’s what I want to achieve in my life.

The last one stuck out to me, when I was watching the most recent dubbed episode of The Ancient Magus’ Bride. There were other quotes I could have pulled, but this was the one I remembered initially. A lot of the episode dealt with Chise finding the medium between dependence and independence. It seems like she wants to rely heavily on Elias, but she won’t let him rely on her as well. Ruth, Chise’s familiar, wants her to know that it’s okay for there to be a mutual feeling between the two of them, where they know the other will be there for them. I just love seeing them grow in their relationship, and this quote also rings truth in real life too.


Wow, this turned to be long, but I hope you enjoyed it all the same, and I hope it was okay for me to share some personal stories.
