Anime Quotes About Death

Death is something that have always fascinated us humans who have the questionable gift of being aware of our own mortality. We fear it, we’re in awe of it, we despise it… sometimes wish it upon others, sometimes upon ourselves. Despite our fascination, there’s not much that we know about death, as no one lived to share the tale (I’m so original). Surprising to some, the discussion of death in the anime world is quite fascinating, there’s a hint of Eastern Philosophies, but much more than that, fictional characters that represent a nihilistic perspective that others never dare to say. Below are some of our favorite Anime Quotes About Death, some are intelligent, some cynical, depressive, inspiring, sometimes amusing.

Man always thinks about the past before he dies, as if he were frantically searching for proof that he truly lived.

Virgo Shaka Quotes



 Virgo Shaka From Saint Seya 





The flowers bloom, then wither …

the stars shine and one day become extinct …

This earth, the sun, the galaxies and even the big universe

someday will be destroyed …

Compared with that,the human life is only a blink,

just a little time …

In that short time, the people are born, laugh, cry, fight,

are injured, feel joy, sadness, hate someone, love someone.

All in just a moment.

And then,  are embraced by the eternal sleep called death.








  Orichimaru Quotes From Naruto


There probably isn’t any meaning in life. Perhaps you can find something interesting to do while you are alive. Like how you found that flower. Like how I found you.
Orochimaru (Naruto)

  Dr. Hiruluk From One Piece


When do you think people die? When they are shot through the heart by the bullet of a pistol? No. When they are ravaged by an incurable disease? No. When they drink a soup made from a poisonous mushroom!? No! It’s when… they are forgotten.

spirit owl quotes



    Spirit Owl From Wolf’s Rain




When are we born? When do we die? Why are we born? Why do we die? The world has been destroyed and we’ve fallen countless times, always resurrecting from the ashes as Paradise. It has happened before, and it will happen again. An endless cycle of life and death. The world is a Paradise that was opened by someone, but this era too is almost at an end. We have acquired the means to exceed our natural span of life, never suspecting that the world itself was finalized in its existence. This knowledge has left me in despair, my fate has fallen and scattered like the petals of a dying flower, like the blast from a sandstorm it has been worn down and weathered away. As if to be purified, the world will be encased in ice so that it can return to the beginning once more. Paradise is a world that is opened by someone…
Spirit Owl (Wolf’s Rain)

Kirishiki Sunako Quotes



  Kirishiki Sunako From Shiki


Death is terrible for anyone. Young or old, good or evil, it’s all the same. Death is impartial. There is no especially terrible death. That’s why death is so fearsome. Your deeds, your age, your personality, your wealth, your beauty: they are all meaningless in the face of death.

Sunako Kirishiki (Shiki)
