Thought it'd be a good idea to make a thread where we can compile some of the best quotes to come out of the legendary series that is Hunter x Hunter. I personally believe Togashi is a master of dialogue, with a lot of simple pieces of dialogue having a great deal of depth to them on closer inspection.
What are some of your favourites? Quotes can be from both anime series and of course the manga itself. Here are some of my favourites:
'If you want to get to know someone, find out what makes them angry.' - Aunt Mito, repeated by Gon Freecss.
'I do not fear death, I only fear that my rage will one day fade' - Kurapika
'I fear I've created an incredible monster...' - Wing in reference to Gon
'My Dear Uvo, can you hear this? We dedicate this requiem to you!' - Chrollo as he conducts the requiem of destruction for Uvo.
'I can't stand being on the losing end forever!' - Gon during fight with Genthru
'I'd prefer not to do this, I've seen you in action and you have talent and potential. Is your pride really worth throwing that all away?' - Genthru during fight with Gon
'He's utterly insane!' - Genthru's observation of Gon
"Violence is the greatest power of the world!" - The first conclusion taken by King Meruem, after realizing he could crush even those who would surpass him in a specific area (besides, of course, power).
Which reminds me of this...(pay attention to the funny skeleton talking =P)
I always found this dialogue hilarious 99 version, episode 18, when they look for treasures during the boat test :
Hanzo : I found something !
Kurapika : Oh, wow ! That's the ceremonial crown of Jerra III, also know as The Tragic Prince. He was lost at sea on his coronation day in the sixteenth century !
Leorio : What ?!
Kurapika : It's common knowledge to anyone who's trying to be a Hunter...
Gon : I found something too !! Look at it !
Kurapika : That's the Legendary Scepter of the Sun, which was supposed to be presented to the queen of Eng in the 18th century, but mysteriously dissapeared ! It must be worth hundreds of millions !
Leorio : WHAT ?! I can't be sitting around here !
*He undresses and jumps*
Kurapika : ... Or it could just be a bedpost.
He doesn’t talk. He doesn’t talk about the past. He has no interest in the past. By tomorrow, I imagine he'll have forgotten Kastro's face. He doesn’t associate with others. He’s his own man. Because he believes himself to be the strongest.
- Machi (talking about Hisoka)
Move, and I will kill you... Use Nen, and I will kill you. Make a sound, and I will kill you. If you understand, slowly close your eyes. Do you know what happens if you break your word? If you know, slowly open your eyes. Look at me in the mirror, and listen carefully. Never show your filthy face to us again. That's a promise.
Killua. Thank you. To have come here with you... Yeah, to have met you... was really a fortunate thing. - Gon
It's the other way around. Gon, it's me. Gon. Me. ...Meeting you, I'm the fortunate one. - Killua
The best bromance. Ever.
