"You'll either be revealed as a murderer wearing the mask of humanism or as one worthy of the beautiful name... 'man'. ."
— Kyôritsu Ô, from No Greater Love
"It's not my fault that I'm Japanese... yet it's my worst crime that I am!."
— Kaji, from No Greater Love
"I refuse to die."
— Kaji, from Road to Eternity
Shinjô Ittôhei: You doubt that all races are equal?
Kaji: I just don't share the same naive certainty. What have the Japanese done? Deserting the ranks of the invader doesn't prove the purity of your ideals. You're still just a deserter.
Shinjô Ittôhei: What are you trying to say?
Prettier flowers blossoming on their soil doesn't justify rejecting your own. I could never do it.
