The Scream Inside - Multiple Personality Disorder

The Scream Inside - Multiple Personality Disorder (心の中の叫び ―多重人格について, Kokoro no Uchi no Sakebi - Tajūjinkaku nitsuite) is a book featured primarily in Boogiepop and Others.

Quotes

  • "The human psyche is open to the possibilities of both good and evil. In my opinion, multiple personality disorder occurs when one of these possibilities, suppressed by societal pressures, declares independence and begins to fight to exist. Regardless of how diseased the result or how destructive it is on the host body and those around it, the possibility makes no distinction between good or evil."

    (Boogiepop and Others, Chapter 1)

VS Imaginator

VS Imaginator (VSイマジネーター, VS Imajinēta) is a book featured primarily in Boogiepop Returns: VS Imaginator.

    (Boogiepop Returns: VS Imaginator Part 1, Prologue)

  • "If you wish to be good, then do not have dealings with the future. In most cases, that only leads to distortion."

    (Boogiepop Returns: VS Imaginator Part 1, Chapter 3)

  • "Why are we afraid of the dark? Even though it is the inevitable result of living..."

    (Boogiepop Returns: VS Imaginator Part 1, Chapter 4)

  • "It is easy to become carefree. All you have to do is lose your soul."

    (Boogiepop Returns: VS Imaginator Part 1, Chapter 5)

  • "Not all confusion will ever be cleared up. Sometimes it will solidify, still confused, and attempt to judge the world. Like a curse, affecting the world with no rhyme or reason..."

    (Boogiepop Returns: VS Imaginator Part 1, Chapter 6)

  • "There certainly is something out there. Something that makes people believe that they have to know their place in life. This knowledge gets in between people, and rocks the very foundations of this world....If there is anything that gives value to human life, it is the struggle with that "something." In the battle with the Imaginator that does your thinking for you—VS Imaginator is the starting line on which all humans must stand."

  • "A new possibility...occasionally consumes all things like itself... before self-destructing."

    (Boogiepop Returns: VS Imaginator Part 2, Prologue)

  • "Nightmares begin before you are aware of them. They are extremely difficult to predict or prevent."

    (Boogiepop Returns: VS Imaginator Part 2, Chapter 1)

  • "Rather than ask yourself if you are correct, it is far more realistic to think about how you are mistaken. Most humans have not been designed to be right very often."

  • "When humans think something is absolutely correct, in most cases, that truth is already in the past."

    (Boogiepop Returns: VS Imaginator Part 2, Chapter 6)

  • "In the End, there is nothing waiting for you."

    (Boogiepop Returns: VS Imaginator Part 2, Chapter 7)

  • "If there is such a thing as a God, then that God would exist only in the future."

    (Boogiepop at Dawn, Chapter 4)

  • "If there is such a thing as a God, then that God would exist only in the future. There is no doubt that salvation exists in this world, but despair is commonplace as well. Those who claim to be God's spokesmen try to explain that contradiction as 'God's trials', but that attempt at persuasion eventually ends up like this: if you have a great number of allies, you will gain a stronger position. His teachings haven't surpassed man's common sense. To say such a God is above man, that theory is much too... crude."

It is the following generation. Furthermore, for those that receive the fruits of that success, it is no longer a dream, but established fact. All hopes must therefore become the sacrifice of the Victor, but this is how humanity has advanced. Our only road is ahead of us, for people cannot live in the past..."

    (Boogiepop Returns: VS Imaginator Part 2, Chapter 3)

  • "Unfortunately, genuine effort is never understood by others. It is only understood when you emerge victorious, but when you win, the beauty of the effort extended is subverted into something else entirely. The true fruits of effort lie only within that which is sacrificed."

    (Boogiepop at Dawn, Chapter 3)

    (Boogiepop at Dawn, Chapter 6)

Quotes

  • "If you are a warrior, born to fight, then the object of your life’s purpose exists only within the enemy."

    (Boogiepop at Dawn, Chapter 4)

  • "Strength is not about having power. Nor is it about being exceptional. Nor is it being large, nor possessing brute force. Nor does it mean being rigid, or not losing. Ultimately, strength has no bearing on any other thing. It is an independent concept in and of itself, and should you truly attempt to grasp it, you must be prepared to sacrifice all other things. Victory… glory… All of it."
