Just a few I wanted to share for one reason or another:
This string of dialogue has always stuck with me, ever since I first read it, no matter how much time has passed. Of course, it’s not the only of such from Rewrite to do so (and a majority of the time it is
Akane speaking when it happens), but I find the delivery of these lines to be particularly perfect, both the voice acting and the word choice. It’s also just so piercingly insightful from Akane when thinking about the topics Rewrite explores and the overall story.
And of course, my post-modernistic ass loves her use of the word “infect” when talking about Justice.
A scene from Shizuru’s route:
I recently re-read Shizuru’s route and burst out laughing when I saw this line. After reading Terra, it’s quite amusing. I don’t know how I missed it on my previous re-reads.
Just in case people don’t remember, the context is that other than the obvious joke with the saying, Kotarou actually has
“died” (in a sense) twice before this moment, the first being the bad end of Terra and the second being when the Earth Dragon nearly eats him earlier in Shizuru’s route.
I just find it funny that the joke is that idiots don’t realise that you can only die once, yet Imamiya is talking to a self-proclaimed idiot who actually has “died” twice and indeed still hasn’t learned, just as the saying goes.
Just one more for fun, from Terra:
“Like I said, I’m saving the planet.”
“That’s the only way to win over the girl I like.” ~ Kotarou
There are so many more that it’d take me forever to narrow them down, so I’ll just stop here for now. But just for the record, I’d say pretty much any instance of Akane explaining anything, and all of the Earth Dragon’s lines are screenshot/quote-worthy, among other things of course (you can see why I’m being so frugal in my selection process).
