10. Jiraya (Naruto)
Jiraya, Ep. 53
- Episodes: 220
- Aired: Oct. 2002-Feb. 2007
Who would proudly announce that they are a pervert? That’s right, it’s Jiraya. He is a hermit/writer who is part of the three powerful Sanin. He is funny, wise, eccentric, and a pervert. Jiraya has a teacher-student relationship with Naruto but treats him more like a grandson.
Naruto, wanting to be stronger to achieve his dream of becoming a Hokage, kept on pestering Jiraya to train him since Naruto’s initial teacher, Ebisu, was knocked down by the Toad Sanin. Jiraya said that he will only train the boy if he stays with him using his sexy technique which made Naruto shout back at him being a pervert. And this is where this quote comes in. Just as Naruto said “He openly admitted it” and we can’t help but laugh how bold and proud Jiraya is for correcting Naruto that he is no ordinary pervert.
9. Elric, “Ed” Edward (Fullmetal Alchemist/ Hagane no Renkinjutsushi)
Elric “Ed” Edward, Ep. 1
- Episodes: 51
- Aired: Oct. 2003-Oct. 2004
The two brothers, Edward and Alphonse, just arrived at a desert town of Reole after learning that the philosopher's stone might be at that place. As they were resting at a food stand, a mysterious lady in cloak made a remark to Edward that he is the prodigy state alchemist. But instead of praising Edward, they went to Alphonse mistaking him as the sate alchemist. Alphonse immediately corrected the misunderstanding, but the townsfolk are doubtful because of how little Edward is. This triggered Edward to rage and defend his height and thus the quote.
Edward has made us laugh a thousand times with his antics when it comes to his height and of course him being mistaken as the little brother. He has said a lot of things to those people who made fun of him that can be made as a funny quote, but still, this quote takes the cake. As he tries to prove that he is no “shorty”, it is quite obvious that he has heard tons of different versions of how to call him small. But true to his statement, he is still undeniably growing and wow! Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood proves what a fine man he is when he gets tall. Ah~ If only he could have drank lots milk then maybe he would have grown taller sooner. Guess he’s just a late bloomer.
8. Heiwajima, Shizuo (Durarara!!)
Heiwajima Shizuo, Ep. 11
- Episodes: 24
- Aired: Jan. 2010-Jun. 2010
Ever since he was young, Shizuo has been enormously strong with a short tempered fuse, which is a bad combination as he tends to wreck havoc when angered. Despite this, he is against violence, therefore, hating himself for not being able to control his anger. He is a quiet good looking guy and acts according to what he believes is right.
In episode 11, we see Simon advertising his Russian sushi with Shizuo beside him. Shizuo tells Simon this quote saying that it’ll be more understandable if a middle school dreamer asked him that instead of an adult yakuza guy. Realizing that Simon is not listening, Shizuo almost threw a motorbike at him but not without Simon stopping Shizuo. The scene is funny enough that Shizuo is being ignored, but the quote itself is hilarious. You can just imagine the poor guy questioning about life, just to be answered with Shizuo’s violent strength. Bet the guy learned the meaning of life, albeit him learning it the hard way.
7. Okajima, Taiga (Assassination Classroom/ Ansatsu Kyoushitsu)
Okajima Taiga, Ep. 17
- Episodes: 22
- Aired: Jan. 2015-Jun. 2015
School can either be fun or not, it all depends with your environment, classmates, and the teacher. But when you are studying under Koro-sensei’s class, rest assured that the class would be fun. 70% of the moon has been destroyed by a mysterious creature. Now the creature who is known to be Koro-sensei, claims that the earth will have the same fate if class 3-E of Kunugigaoka Middle School doesn’t assassinate him before the school term ends. And thus, the students try to kill their teacher while studying like normal kids too.
One such assassination attempt was when Okajima, Taiga, lured Koro-sensei with porn magazines. His classmates didn’t believe that the plan of luring their teacher would work but to their shock it did! Okajima researched well about his teacher’s prefered type and made sure to use it against Koro-sensei. But Koro-sensei being, well, Koro-sensei, still managed to get away from the assassination attempt with ease. This quote can actually be true if they did managed to kill Koro-sensei at that time. Besides, the quote is really humorous! Porn can surely save some other people... but saving the whole world? Now that’s an entirely different story!
6. Levi (Attack on Titan/ Shingeki no Kyojin)
Levi, Ep. 18
- Episodes: 25
- Aired: Apr. 2013-Sept. 2013
Attack on Titan may be a very grim anime, but it still has it share of some funny moments at times. Levi is recognized by many as the leader of the special operation squad and humanity’s strongest soldier. He is very hard to approach due to his cold personality and is an extreme clean freak. Levi usually speaks frankly and uses vulgar insults, but in spite of this, he is empathetic towards his comrades.
While executing the expedition outside the walls, a female titan is on the heels of the survey corps to capture Eren. The chase continues as they go towards the forest of giant trees. Entering in the forest, Eren questions Levi about the formation as there is definitely something wrong with it. Levi responded to Eren to look at his surroundings and take advantage of it and just follow Erwin’s orders.
There’s really nothing supposedly funny about what he said, but the way he phrases it is just plain amusing. The tress are absolutely big alright, but just imagine big tress with asses on it. Now that would be a spectacle to behold huh. Levi normally speaks like this and we reckon that there are more phrases of his that are just as good as this quote.
5. Furukawa, Nagisa (Clannad: After Story)
Furukawa Nagisa, Ep. 14
- Episodes: 24
- Aired: Oct. 2008-Mar. 2009
When we hear Clannad, we instantly think about how sad it is and how it made us cry. Oh~ But not this time! Not when Nagisa said something priceless as this. Clannad: After story follows the romance of Nagisa and Tomoya and their ever changing world of becoming a newly wed couple and more.
The quote came from one of the most funniest scenes in the anime. As usual Akio and Tomoya are bickering at each other when they heard noise coming from the bathroom. The two immediately went to check, just to see Nagisa throwing up as Sanae assists her. Akio jokes at Tomoya that by now, Nagisa should be pregnant in which Sanae agrees that Nagisa is. The two men are both shocked and most especially, Akio. To stop her father from giving ideas how she is with child, Nagisa shouted this quote leaving Tomoya to almost be punched by Akio. But nonetheless, Akio still congratulated Tomoya.
Nagisa couldn't be more obvious how babies are made. All the expression on their faces are golden! Sanae just smiling on the corner, Nagisa blushing and shaking from embarrassment, Akio processing the news, albeit, getting mad, and Tomoya having mixed emotions of being scared because of Akio and admiration towards Nagisa’s bold statement.
4. Onizuka, Eikichi (Great Teacher Onizuka)
Onizuka Eikichi, Ep. 38
- Episodes: 38
- Aired: Jun. 1999-Sept. 2000
Onizuka, Eikichi is the teacher of class 3-4 at Seirin Academy private school. He teaches social studies and is famous for teaching his students in an unconventional way. Onizuka is flamboyant, eccentric, and childish. However he takes his job very seriously and is ready to guide his students as best as he could. As the title of the anime suggests, Onizuka is clearly great!
In the first scenes of the episode, Onizuka killed the very fish that the vice-principal used as an example to elaborate the importance of life. Onizuka wanted to make the fish as a side dish and even offered the vice principal if he wants some. Just as this argument continues on, one of Onizuka’s students, Kazaki, snuck a snake in his shorts out of revenge for messing up the room arrangements. The snake bites Onizuka’s genitals, thereby, asking for help to suck the poison out.
As much as Fuyutsuki-sensei wants to help our unfortunate protagonist. It just can’t be. Why would she, or anyone else suck out the poison from his genitals. That’s just a big “NO”, unless you guys are fine with that. Thankfully, he is flexible enough to suck it out himself. How did he do it though? We’ll leave it up for your own imagination.
3. Motoharu (Daily Lives of High School Boys/ Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou)
Motoharu, Ep. 7
- Episodes: 12
- Aired: Jan. 2012-Mar. 2012
Daily Lives of High school Boys is a slice of life comedy anime. That being said, there are a pile of jokes, puns, and good funny quotes in this anime. But as the saying goes, “there can only be one”, thus, this is the quote that we have chosen.
Four boys talk about Mitsuo behind his back about his stupidity during his younger days. To hopefully stop them from talking about him, he approaches them. But despite this, they still continued to talk about him. While 2 of the 4 boys gave their story regarding Mitsuo, -one of it being the quote above- it turns out that it was Yoshitake, Tanaka, all along. This means it’s not Mitsuo who pooped his pants, but it was Yoshitake.
Putting aside who really pooped, the quote itself is funny. I think its a good strategy to cry and run off when mother nature calls us without delay in our underwears. Just make sure to time it right so your playmates won’t even tell the difference. Better yet, just go to the bathroom when you really need to. They were kids at that time so it was understandable but still, we can’t help but laugh at this part so much. Well, at least Motoharu apologized for saying it, right?
2. Sakata, Gintoki (Gintma)
Sakata Gintoki, Ep. 11
- Episodes: 201
- Aired: Apr. 2006-Mar. 2010
Gintama is an anime that will make you wonder what you are watching. It has a lot of random moments but you just can’t help but watch the show.
An old man asked the Yoruzuya to help him find the the owner of the hairpin he has been carrying for the last 30 years. Thinking that the man had a lot of fortune, Yoruzuya took the job only to find out that the old man is broke. They decided to call it off but not without the old man telling his story to Gintoki. Gintoki finding within himself to help the old man, he inspires Yoruzuya with the strawberry milk speech.
After the poop business from the last selection, this time we move on to peeing. To simply put, Gintoki can’t stop himself, but offer his services to the old man. He uses the strawberry milk speech to express this. It might be so but, wow, this quote was so humorous and deep. I’m sure all us, in one point of our life, experienced what Gintoki has stated. It might not be strawberry milk who caused it, but hay, it’s close. Gintama has the best quotes of making it funny and at the same time inspirational.
1. Yagami, Light (Death Note)
Yagami Light, Ep. 8
- Episodes: 37
- Aired: Oct. 2006-Jun. 2007
As the search for Kira continues, L suspects that Light and Kira are one and the same. In order to see if Light is Kira, L asked the surveillance team to install cameras at the Yagami household. Light noticing this, acted like a normal boy would do at his age. To further remove any suspicion from himself, he still continues to be Kira. He does this by making his study notes using his right hand and uses his left hand to write in the death note. Light made use of a bag of potato chips to hide a portable mini T.V. inside to watch the reports.
This quote is our number 1 choice because of how popular it is. All us for sure had to pause the player and rewind this scene just to check if Light really did say that. After all, with the intense background music, heavy atmosphere, and Light’s ominous voice, we would never expect him to say something like this. Heck it even sounded funnier when he used his evil voice and matched it with his evil laughter. Only Light can say something random and then couple it up with a nice touch of his menacing tone.
