  • Shundan Kimi (to Misaka Mikoto, regarding her plan to spread esper development technology): "The weak are trapped below the heels of the strong, but even they can tear out throats if they grow fangs. They won't need heroes like you to save them. The heroes can't reach all of the weak, so isn't it more fair to give the weak weapons so they can fight back?"
