We’ve combined your two favorites, anime and astrology, to create the perfect watch list. Keep reading to find out which anime best represents your sign!
Aries (March 21 – April 19 ): Courageous, honest, passionate, moody, aggressive, short-tempered
Anime: Attack on Titan
This anime’s leading character, Eren (who is an Aries himself) embodies this fire sign’s spirit. His strong will to survive at all costs and explosive attitude make Attack on Titan the perfect show to fit this zodiac sign. No matter how bleak the situation may look, Eren along with Mikasa and Armin, are determined to face what lays ahead courageously in the hopes of a better tomorrow. Any Aries is sure to identity with the characters’ passionate nature.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Reliable, patient, devoted, stubborn, uncompromising, possessive
Narumi, a fujoshi, and Hirotaka, a gamer otaku, are childhood friends turned lovers who share a joint goal of wanting to enjoy their hobbies peacefully. Their devotion to their relationship and stubbornness to continue their otaku lives regardless of outsiders’ opinions is the perfect example of the Taurean nature. This romcom will capture the heart of any Taurus who’s ever dreamed of living an uncomplicated life.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Expressive, witty, adaptable, flighty, indecisive, inconsistent
This slice of life comedy is centered around a whole host of characters who struggle to communicate effectively, leading to endless humorous misunderstandings. The anime’s very capable leading character, Takanashi-kun, vacillates between wanting to change or remain the same- represents not only the dual nature of this air sign but their struggle with indecisiveness. Working!! will hold even the flightiest Gemini’s attention with its continuous gags and quirky cast.
Cancer (June 21 -July 22): Passionate, intuitive, tenacious, manipulative, pessimistic, insecure
Barakamon is fantastically campy with a nostalgic appeal which lends to the Cancer’s love of home. Handa-sensei, a calligrapher sent to the countryside after an explosive event at an art viewing, is on a soul search not only to better understand who he has become, but to improve his craft. However, his efforts are often thwarted by the antics of the village children, including a particularly rambunctious 7-year old named Naru. Through these shenanigans, there is a love that is built that effectively pulls at Cancer’s heartstrings.
Leo (July 23 – August 22): Warm-hearted, creative, brave, arrogant, inflexible, self-centered
Anime: Magi: Adventure Of Sinbad
Magi follows the adventures of Sinbad, a young boy who sets out to not only change the world but to become king. Sinbad consistently displays what it takes to be a great leader; although, it is later revealed that he can be a bit self-centered and manipulative. With his flair for the dramatic, flirty nature, and take charge personality, Leo should have no problem seeing themselves through the main character’s eyes.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22): Practical, hard-working, kind, overly critical, judgmental, fussy
Told from the veiwpoint of Hikigaya, an overly critical and judgemental protagonist, SNAFU is a story about a high school youth determined to be the antagonist of his own story. Although extremely hard-working, his seemingly practical but harsh methods to keep those around him happy have made him the pariah of the school. Through the friendship of two classmates, Yukino and Yui – who are able to see through his attempts of self-sabotage – Hikigaya’s thoughtful and kind nature is slowly revealed in the form of a very complex love triangle. Virgos will be able to easily relate with the main character’s pragmatic nature and selflessness.
Libra (September 23 – October 22): Harmonious, charming, loyal, indecisive, avoids confrontation, self-indulgent
Although lacking the ambition that some Libras may display, Tanaka-kun is a shining example of this air sign. With his deep desire to simply enjoy life while doing as little as possible, Tanaka’s harmonious nature and go-with-the-flow attitude makes him an especially likable character, easily charming his classmates without even trying. Because decision making can sometimes be too much effort, he often leaves choices of where to eat or go after school up to his best friend, Ohta, whom he is very loyal to. This cute, funny slice of life anime is an easy choice for the most indecisive Libra.
Scorpio (October 23- November 21): Mysterious, passionate, assertive, distrusting, jealous, secretive
Anime: Cowboy Bebop
Well known and highly praised, Cowboy Bebop is an easy choice for Scorpio. Set to a jazz soundtrack, an eclectic crew of bounty hunters travel across the Solar System rounding up bad guys and slowly learning to trust each other. Each with their own secret and mysterious past, the Bebop crew seek to reconcile their previous lives so that they can live in the present. Scorpios will be able to identify with the characters’ struggle to hold onto their anonymity.
Sagittarius (November 22- December 21): Humorous, adventurous, open minded, impatient, awkward, absent-minded
Much like the quirky and fun Sagittarius itself, That Time I Got Reincarnated As a Slime is a mirror of your friendly neighborhood Archer. Following the death of a 37-year old office worker, Satoru Mikami who is, as the title suggests, reincarnated in another world as a slime where adventure ensues. This anime ranges from intense battle scenes, humorous quips, to emotional character arcs. Full of whimsy and other sillness, Sagittarius is sure to enjoy the ride.
Capricorn (December 22- January 19): Analytical, confident, responsible, unforgiving, condescending, know-it-all
Code Geass follows the tale of exiled prince, Lelouch who, with his cold, calculating personality and the supernatural power to control people, leads a rebellion against the very empire that betrayed him. Nothing has been left unplanned and anyone is prey to his scheming. Lelouch demands revenge and he means to acquire it by any means necessary in this mech anime. Capricorn will be able to closely relate to Lelouch’s analytical thinking and unforgiving motives.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): Intellectual, helpful, independent, temperamental, uncompromising, aloof
Anime: One Punch Man
Enter the world’s most aloof super hero, Saitama from City Z! Able to defeat any villain with just one punch, he joins the Hero Association, hoping to gain notoriety for his courageous deeds and the chance to fight powerful villains. Unfortunately because of his unassuming nature, he and his mentee, Genos, are often overlooked by both the Association and the townspeople. This causes Saitama to become increasingly frustrated with his omnipotence when all he seeks is an opponent capable of giving him a real challenge. Aquarius will find kinship in Saitama due to his uncompromising morals and desire to be of service.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20): Compassionate, artistic, gentle, naïve, fearful, martyr mentality
Anime: Fruits Basket 2019
In this sweet, recently remade anime, Tohru Honda, a kind albeit naive high school girl unexpectedly finds herself living under the same roof with two male classmates after an unfortunate event. Her compassionate and understanding nature quickly endears her to the Soma household as they trust her to keep their family secret- they are cursed to change into different animals from the zodiac whenever they are stressed, weak, or come into physical contact with the opposite sex. Pisces share a bond with Tohru as they both want what’s best for those they treasure and and are willing to sacrifice their needs for others’ happiness.
