    Death Note (Anime) ➜ Quotes (7) I knew I was the only one capable of doing it. I knew that killing people was a crime.

I was chosen to make amends for this rotten world, and to create a truly safe and ideal world.

    Death Note (Anime) ➜ Quotes (20) There are many types of monsters that scare me: Monsters who cause troubles without showing themselves, monsters who abduct children, monsters who devour dreams, monsters who suck blood … and then, monsters who tell nothing but lies. Lying monsters are a real nuisance: They are much more cunning than others: They pose as humans even though they have no understanding of the human heart; they eat even though they’ve never experienced hunger; they study even though they have no interest in academics; they seek friendship even though they do not know how to love. If I were to encounter such monsters, I would likely be eaten by them … because in truth, I am that monster.

    Death Note (Anime) ➜ Quotes (24) No matter how gifted you are … You alone cannot change the world.

    Death Note (Anime) ➜ Quotes (26) If I sit like a normal person my investigative abilities would be half as effective.

    Death Note (Anime) ➜ Quotes (28) It’s not a sense of justice. Figuring out difficult cases is my hobby. If you measured good and evil deeds by current laws, I would be responsible for many crimes. The same way you all like to solve mysteries and riddles, or clear video games more quickly … For me too, it’s simply prolonging something I enjoy doing. That’s why I only take on cases that pique my interest. It’s not justice at all. And if it means being able to clear a case, I don’t play fair, I’m a dishonest, cheating human being who hates losing …

    Death Note (Anime) ➜ Quotes (29) Seigishin de wa arimasen. Nanjiken wo kaiketsu suru no wa shumi desu. Ima no hou de zenaku wo hakaru nara watashi mo takusan no aku wo okash*teiru akunin desu. Minasan ga suirishousetsu no nazotoki ya terebi geemu wo yori hayaku kuria sh*tai to omou no to onaki de asobi no enchou de ari shumi desu. Dakara watashi wa jibun ga kyoumi wo motta jiken shika te wo dasanai. Seigi dewa arimasen. Sosh*te kuria suru tame nara shudan wo erabanai makezu kirai de zurui ningen desu. (正義心ではありません。難事件を解決するのは趣味です。今の法で善悪を計るなら私も沢山の悪を犯している悪人です。皆さんが推理小説の謎解きやテレビゲームをより早くクリアしたいと思うのと同じで遊びの延長であり趣味です。だから私は自分が興味を持った事件しか手を出さない。正義ではありません。そしてクリアする為なら手段を選ばない負けず嫌いでずるい人間です。)

    Death Note (Anime) ➜ Quotes (35) All humans die the same, the place they go after death isn’t decided upon by a god it is Mu (nothingness).

  • Souichirou YAGAMI

    Death Note (Anime) ➜ Quotes (37) The real evil is the power to kill people. Someone who finds himself with that power is cursed. No matter how you use it, anything obtained by killing people can never bring true happiness.
