30-Day Anime Challenge: Day 28: Favourite Quote From Any Anime Character 

The most heartbreaking line from the most heartbreaking anime.

“I don’t want to eat anymore”

I think my favourite quote from any anime character would have to be from Keneki Ken in Tokyo Ghoul.

The moment is during season 2 (for a rubbish season it had a few good moments) when Keneki is in his centipede form fighting Amon in the prison. Amon calls out to him, demanding to know what happened to the young man he met all those weeks ago who was different from all the other ghouls he had met before, and Keneki breaks down and says “I don’t want to eat anymore.”

My heart cracked in two at that moment.

Keneki Ken really did go through a lot of shit during this anime, and I think this line really sums up the struggle he goes through.

He doesn’t want to eat anymore because he doesn’t want to be a ghoul anymore. He never wanted to be a ghoul. He doesn’t deserve all the crap he went through after becoming one – being chased after by Tsukiyama, watching his best friend nearly killed by Nishiki, being captured and tortured by Jason.

This line not only says that he wants to stop eating human flesh, but that he wants all that crap to stop. That he wants to be human again and have his old life back.
