Nicholas D. Wolfwood – Trigun
“Preacher, don’t the Bible have some pretty specific things to say about killin?
– Wolfwood: “Quite specific. It is, However, somewhat fuzzier on the subject of kneecaps.”
This quote tells you quite a lot about Wolfwood’s character. He’s a preacher first and foremost. As the show goes on, it becomes clearer and clearer that he’s also a world-class shot and an ex-assassin to boot. The cross on his back is extremely heavy because “it’s so full of mercy.” The mercy, of course, happens to be a gigantic gun.
“Aramaa, tora da wa!”
Oh, Benten…so unconcerned as a giant tiger bursts through the wall and growls most terribly in the face of the Friday Fellows’ New Years dinner. What is truly special about this line, the way she says it in Japanese, is that it is more akin to saying, “Oh look, a kitty!” all while maintaining an elegant and feminine speech pattern and tone. Gold.
