As for an Anime top 100 list... I'm certainly intrigued by the idea, just not sure if it could be done.

That is an interesting idea. Should we try to have a go at it anyway?

I imagine that PCF could come up with a list on its own one way or another. Asking around on the rest of the Internets would be a messy affair, not to mention potentially unpleasant, since it could involve having to deal with the--*cough*--"hoi poloi" of anime society...

But anyway! I think it might be interesting to see what we could come up with. But where to start?

Pretty much got the idea from this. If you haven't been following the show for a minute, this is what's been happening so far; Green_Bird posted a thread showing the 100 Best Catchphrases from TV Land and people posted in it. Zengiata came up with the idea first to do something in the same nature with anime, Mistress-Samwise liked the idea and I found it to be interesting as well. Roll credits of that thread and so, I made this thread as a spinoff to accomdate for the "100 Best Catchphrases in Anime".

The way this works, I suppose, is that we could just post down quotes, debate about them and then try to fill out or narrow everything we got at one point to a 100 list of quotes from anime.

I guess I can head things off first with:
"It was like watching a dream I thought I would never wake up from" - Spike Spiegel

"A bird whose wings have been plucked will shead all its feathers, and return back into the beast it was before it evolved into a bird." - Roger Smith.

So, anybody willing to run with this and have a go at it?

There are two cool villain quotes from Cowboy Bebop that I always liked.

"And you will shed tears of scarlet. " - Vicious right before slicing his katana across the eyes of one of the Red Dragon leaders.

"I have no fear of death. To me, it just means dreaming in silence. A dream that will last for eternity." - Vincent

Honorable DBZ mentions:

"Having these balls makes me feel something that resembles joy, I think. I want to caress them." - Frieza

The greatest anime quote of all time comes from none other than Dragonball Z...from the Super Android #13 movie:

"Free will? Pitiful humans; war, segregation, hatred, is that what you've done with your free will, boy?! Don't you lecture me with your thirty dollar haircut. Goku dies!" -- Super Android #13 to Trunks.

"Now I cant believe that the great Goku is catchin' an ass-whippin' from those boys. If he cant even handle the Indians, why bring out the Chief?" -- Super Android #13

and of course, anything Vegita says is hilarious:

"Now you stay in the back and keep quiet, woman. I don't have time for your stupidity right now." -- to Bulma.

"Hand me a drying cloth, woman!!" -- to Bulma.

"It's amazing that every time you open your mouth you prove that your an idiot." -- to Bulma.

"What's the matter,clown?" -- to Goku.

"This is what happens when you don't train for seven years!He's completely lost his fighting sense...disgraceful." -- to Goku.

Is that from the Japanese dub? 'Cause I have a running joke with my friends that concerns the quote from the English dub.

I say, "It's hot."

And they respond immediately with, "Yes."
