3 Days 3 Quotes Tag – Day 1

A few months ago I was tagged by Aria for the 3 Days 3 Quotes Tag.
It’s finally time to start it up! This tag spans over 3 days, as you may have guessed.

You can find Aria’s 3 Days 3 Quotes Tag posts here: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3.
I was tagged on Day 3, which had a great quote from Microsoft.

If only they could follow their own tip – yesterday Windows on my laptop went through a big update that took over an hour. Once it was finally done, I discovered that the update had deleted my audio driver! I tried downloading the driver online, but the install would always fail, so I had to revert to before the update.
Needless to say, I have disabled windows update and that’s the end of those.
After all, I quite like having an audio driver on my computer.

Anyways, the rules for this tag are simple:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post three quotes on three consecutive days.
  3. Nominate three bloggers to do the same.

Thanks again Aria for the nomination, I had this tag written down for a while now.
Glad to finally get started on it, so here we go!

Quote #1:
“If you were to die tomorrow, I shall live for three days‘ time and tell of his tale to someone. I shall recite the story of my master with pride to a listening ear”.

– Shinobu Oshino  (Owarimonogatari)

This is my favourite anime quote. There are definitely many great anime quotes out there, but this one is my favourite. Even if you stumble through the Monogatari Series without really understanding what’s going on, the scene between Araragi and Shinobu in which this quote is spoken tells you everything you need to know about their relationship.

For context, prior to this quote by Shinobu, Araragi says to her: “If you were to die tomorrow, I’d be fine with tomorrow being the last day of my life. But if you decide to live through today, I will also choose to live through today”. 

Araragi and Shinobu develop this inseparable bond that goes beyond any traditional relationship. The scene in which these quotes are spoken is one of my favourite from the entirety of Monogatari Series, because it wraps up how the two feel about each other, after a long time of having a very “it’s complicated” relationship.

Great quote from a great scene from a great anime!

Nomination

I’m going to do this the same way that Aria did, with one nomination per day.
The rules say “nominate three bloggers”, so one blogger per day seems good.

Of course, this means that my first tag has to go to the Tag King himself, Average Joe Reviews. No tag is complete until Average Joe has done it. Truly a tag prodigy, second only to myself, although I feel as if it won’t be long until he takes my title of Tag Master for himself!


And with that, stay tuned for more quotes!

Until next time.
Thanks for reading!

  1. Thanks for taking this nomination on.

    Oh, the audio driver problem. I’m my house’s resident “computer expert”, so I’ve had to wrestle with it before…apparently (according to someone more knowledgeable in computers than myself), the solution is to get external speakers.

    That quote…Monogatari is complicated enough that I don’t get it, but I think that’s the point. (I think that’s a compliment, given the context…

    …welp, I’ve never seen anything of the Monogatari series, so that should explain why I said what I said.)

    1. I only use headphones on my laptop unfortunately. Normally Windows will automatically install “High Definition Audio” if there is no audio driver, which is what I had / have, but I guess the update had other plans.
      Really it all comes back to Dell being the problem, because I had to delete their audio driver as it just does not work well for headphones at all.
