Quotes: Guilty Gear

    Heavy Day 

Detonator will come out of nowhere, yeah!
Trick, Cheat, Fraud, Lie? Sulfur in the air...!

"So let it be, oh let it be", says all debaters.
Six times knocking on the door,
No response but, "Hey, you ready?!"

Back to Back! Death comes riding on a midnight train!
Back to Back! Conscience is screaming to the end!
Back to Back! Can not let anyone do it again!
Back to Back! I can no longer pretend!
Give me a break, you damned!
Just wanna get back my dice again.
Blazing down,
What a heavy day...

Now, you hear the rumble from the ground, yeah!
Trick, Cheat, Fraud, Lie! Clown is dancin' 'round, yeah!

"So let it be, oh let it be", seems I'm the traitor.
Six times knocking on the door,
One last chance you've got to stand!

Back to Back! Death comes riding on a midnight train!
Back to Back! Conscience is screaming to the end!
Back to Back! Can not let anyone do it again!
Back to Back! I can no longer pretend!
Give me a break, you damned!
Just wanna get back my dice again.
Blazing down,
What a heavy day...

Hey! Hey! Hey!

We made a contract with a clown and had a high old time.
No body doubted his true purpose, oh yeah!
Not knowing we had given up everything we had left,
All odds and options denied, trapped here in this dead end-

Back to Back! Death comes riding on a midnight train!
Back to Back! Conscience is screaming to the end!
Back to Back! Blade is already on your jugular vein!
Back to Back! It's now or never, last chance...!
To stand...!

Give me a break, you damned!
Just wanna get back my dice again.
Blazing down-!
What a heavy day...

    Lily 

Lily, you've not changed a bit.
The sky is not the same no more today.
There is no turning back.

Lily, you've not changed a bit.
Covers are all we judge books by today,
If they're shiny or not.

Every page inside is meaningful as always,
But no one's gonna read them out again.

Oh, please! Don't wait for me, darling!
Stay out of the cold rain,
Or your heart may become rusty!
Oh, please! Don't wait for me, darling!
Just stand there and receive!
Your souls is drying up!

You don't need to wait,
Need to wait,
Need to wait for us!

Lily, you'll never change.
The winds are not so soft no more today.
They've changed to cold and sad.

Lily, you'll never change.
They all want a brand new box today,
No matter what's inside.

All these pieces that meant so much to me those days...
The tide has washed them all away today.

Oh, please! Don't wait for me, darling!
Stay out of the cold rain,
Or your heart may become rusty!
Oh, please! Don't wait for me, darling!
Just stand there and receive!
Your souls is drying up!

You don't need to wait,
Need to wait,
Need to wait for us!

What is there to say? Everything's too late,
And we all accepted it that way, so be it.
Time marches on,
Really...

Oh, please! Don't wait for me, darling!
Stay out of the cold rain,
Or your heart may become rusty!
Oh, please! Don't wait for me, darling!
Just stay safe and sound,
And as long as you are there...

I will figure it out,
Figure it out,
Figure it out for you once more!

"It may look like anime, but it definitely sounds like metal. What's more, an absolute multitude of references point to the fact that the man who wrote the storyline, designed the characters and composed the music for Guilty Gear has metal in his blood. In one character you'll find nods to two different members of a German power metal band, called Helloween, a super-move named after a Metallica album and a theme song that's one word different from the title of an Iron Maiden track. If you where to put a metal detector next to a Guilty Gear game it just might explode."
Gametrailers, Top Ten Most Metal Games

Watching someone play Guilty Gear at the competitive level, you would think they were playing a completely different game than the one you screw around with at home. Proper GG play is really a kind of philosophy. Since it's 2D, like many other fighters you have played, you think you're in for a certain kind of experienceóthen it castrates you.

This castration comes as a total surprise.
