  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (14)

    • Sherry: (Finished explaining the battle) I'm sure, now that you understand, you'll be relieved to hand over your book. Kiyo: Huh? Sherry: You never asked to be a part of this and it will be a long, unpleasant bussiness. You must see that.

    • Kiyo: (refering to the battle) So thats the object of the game? Sherry: That's right. To find and burn as many of the books as possible. But it's hardly a game to them. Each book burned means another rival out of the way. Kiyo: I see, so the last one standing is... Brago: The Mamodo King!

    • Kiyo: What's a mamodo? Sherry: Some call them underlings, or imps, or monsters. They exsist in another world separate from ours. I know it sounds strange. Kiyo: Or crazy. No offense.

    • Sherry: Zatch is, what is called, a mamodo. Kiyo: What? Sherry: He's not from this world. He's only here to fulfill his destiny.

    • Sherry: Obviously the child of the red spell book has lost his memory. My coming here is none too soon. Kiyo: Wait a minute, mind telling me whats going on here since you seem to know so much about it? Sherry Hm, I don't see why not. Perhaps if I explain what Zatch is, it will make it easier for you to give up the book.
