List Rules If one of these quotes makes you laugh out loud, vote it up!

If you want to laugh, sometimes the best way to do it is to queue up your favorite anime and tune in to some of the funny anime quotes that appear. 

While comedy anime like Gintama and Konosuba are brimming with hilarious quotes, more serious shows like Legend of the Galactic Heroes and CLANNAD have some genuinely funny moments too. Whether it's a character intentionally cracking a joke or making a comment that was meant to be serious but wasn't, the funniest anime quotes of all time will have you laughing until you cry.

"Hey, you spiky, aloe vera b*stard! Where the hell's Sasuke?"

Most people approach Zetsu, a plant-based creature and member of the Akatsuki, with some level of fear or reverence. Naruto couldn't care less - he just blurts out the most ridiculous description he can think of.

"What a low blow! You fiend of a child! A punch to the scrotum is unforgivable!"

Tenya Iida is one of the most proper, rule-abiding teenagers ever, so hearing him say the word 'scrotum' is funny enough to make viewers spit out whatever they were drinking. The fact that this was said in response to a five-year-old's actual assault on Midoriya's nether regions makes it all the more laugh - and cringe - inducing.

"I'll take a potato chip... AND EAT IT!"

If you haven't watched Light Yagami eat potato chips, you haven't truly lived. The chips are actually part of an elaborate scheme used to take down criminals undetected - impressive but uttered with such theatrics that it's hard not to burst out laughing.

"Look around Eren, at these big [***] trees."

The best thing about this line is how and when Levi says it. He and the rest of the Survey Corps are fleeing from the female Titan and trying to figure out a strategy to defeat her. Levi suggests that Eren take advantage of their tree-filled environment. This isn't funny on its own, but the unnecessary, deadpan swearing makes it hilarious.
