“I was younger then, I wasn’t afraid of anything, I didn’t think about dying for a second. I thought I was invincible. Then I met some girl. I wanted to live, I started to think like that; for the first time I was afraid of death. I had never felt like that before.”—Spike Spiegel (Cowboy Bebop)
People, you see when they must meet someone. They meet the person they must meet, because everything is inevitable… and parting is the same as well ”
— Yuuko - xxxHolic
“To become happy, you need to pay a fair price. Which means that excessive fortune can only be viewed as a threat. You need to earn that fortune through an appropriate amount of work and struggle.”
Yuuko - xxxHolic
“Living things are restrained by Chains: The laws of nature, the flow of time, the vessel known as your “body”, and the existence called your mind. The one chain that people can wield: WORDS”—Yuuko - xxxHolic
I’m watching for a few weeks now a anime series called xxxHolic. Basically is drama and comedy with a bit of supernatural. Here is the sinopsis:
Kimihiro Watanuki is a young boy with a cursed gift. He has the ability to see evil spirits, and somehow they seem attracted to himself. One day he meets a misterious woman who names herself Yuuko. She claims to have the means to end his torment, but she never works for free, and she wouldn’t help him until he works for her enough to pay for her services. Thus he starts to work in her shop and discovers that in that place, nothing is what it seems.
The great if this anime is that each episo de brings a question. This could be about a variety of topics since morality until superstitions that they encounter in Yuuko’s shop.
And this anime has really great quotes that I will post, one per day.
