NisiOisiN
“Every mystery novel I ever read, the great detective was such an arrogant fuck you could replace 70% of his dialogue with 'Are you stupid?' and the conversation would still make sense.”

Hitomi Kanehara
“God has to be a sadist to give people life.”
Hitomi Kanehara, Snakes and Earrings

“God is a man of such perfect, flawless character that he only watches over everyone equally -- the strong and the weak, the rich and the poor -- and never plays favorites or reaches His hand out to any of them. Oh, what a wonderful God. He can just drop dead.”
Yukako Kabei, Kieli, Volume 1: The Dead Sleep in the Wilderness
