A lot of times, fans try to figure out the characters they love based on their astrological signs. This might be part of the reason creators go as far as giving their characters birthdays. One technique in building a character’s personality is based on their astrology, so people feel like they know the character more once they figure out what constellation a character is under.
This article will focus on Virgo Anime characters. Virgo is one of the earth signs in the zodiac. They have a deep-rooted presence in the physical world and tend to think based on what is logical and practical compared to emotional. In addition, the sign believes in the value of hard work and striving for perfection. On the downside, this hyper-awareness may seem a bit strict to other signs.
Here are 20 Virgo anime characters who have become popular in recent years. These characters range from classic anime characters to some of the generation anime characters. Do these characters fit the bill of a Virgo? Read on to find out.
20. Ryou Bakura – Yu-Gi-Oh!
Birthday: September 2
Of course, this article refers to the actual Ryou Bakura and not Yami Bakura. Ryou, on his own, displays his sign’s calm and calculated side. Despite some Virgos being known as strict, Virgos like Ryou are more serene and would rather avoid conflict.
Not only does he host Yami Bakura, but he is also the modern-day counterpart of the anime’s main antagonist Bandit King Bakura. Ryou rarely converses or interferes with Yami Bakura when he is taken over. This is very unlike the type of partnership Yami Yugi and Yugi Moto share. Instead, Yami Bakura can completely overtake Ryou without the latter’s consent and knowledge.
19. Roswaal L. Mathers – Re:Zero
Birthday: September 16
Virgo’s are known for their calculative nature. In a way, scheming or plotting is synonymous with calculating moves. Re: Zero ended up being an eventful anime because of all the plans Rosewaal has made throughout the series. While he may have seemed like an ally at first, he actually was the true antagonist.
The reality of his well-thought-out plans was that he was planning to use Emilia, Subaru, and Ram for his own goal of killing the Divine Dragon and resurrecting Echidna. However, by Arc 4, a bet that he lost made him support Emilia on a quest.
18. Sayaka Miki – Pella Magi Madoka Magica
Birthday: September 20
She doesn’t really think her actions through, which is very unvirgo-like, but at least she later reflects on it. While she doesn’t show a lot of Virgo traits, there are at least some earth-sign characteristics in her. Sayaka is a magical girl from the 2011 anime Puella Magi Madoka Magica. She loves classical music and strives to be like her senior magical girl, Mami Tomoe.
17. Shotaro Kaneda – Akira
Birthdate: September 5
One of the characters that completely goes off their zodiac personality. Shotaro is the type of person who acts before he thinks, completely opposite of how most people born under the Virgo sign would act. Shotaro is the main character of Akira in the film. He is currently the leader of Capsules and a friend of Tetsuo. He values loyalty among his gang and hates it when it is broken.
16. Orihime Inoue – Bleach
Birthday: September 3
On the surface level, she might look like she’s on the ditzy side, but Orihime’s school records state that she’s quite a genius. Her brother mainly raised Orihime after they ran away from home because Sora believed his parents might kill his sister. Unfortunately, before the start of the series, Sora died, leaving Orihime alone.
15. Tomoyo Daidouji – Card Captor Sakura
Birthday: September 3
You can always count on Virgos like Tomoyo to cover all the grounds and ensure things are done to perfection. Even if Sakura doesn’t need it, Tomoyo is always ready to provide Sakura with an amazing wardrobe and even film all her best moments.
Tomoyo is the best friend of Card Captor Sakura’s Sakura. Her counterparts in other Clamp universes seem to have never met Sakura yet. She is the wealthy daughter of the owners of the Daidouji Toy Company and has access to a lot of new technology, which she supplies to Sakura and Cerberus. In addition, she is very mature for her age and is willing to have Sakura’s bath whenever needed.
14. Meiko Honma – Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day
Birthday: September 18
It’s hard to tell Meiko’s personality, but she seems too ditzy and air-headed to be a typical Virgo. However, regardless of her personality, she is a popular character born under the Virgo sign in the anime world.
She is usually called by her nickname Menma. Menma is a ghost who appears before Jinta because of a wish that he and his gang should grant. She, unfortunately, died due to an accident. She retained her child-like personality due to dying young and not being able to mature as her friends did.
13. Sousuke Yamazaki – Free!
Birthday: September 14
It takes a strong mind to play a sport, including swimming. Sosuke even has a very Virgo-like problem. He absolutely refuses to open up and ask for help even if he needs it. For example, he didn’t let anyone know about his shoulder injury until Rin confronted him.
In the series, when he was first introduced, Sosuke was a national ranked butterfly-stroke swimmer until he injured his shoulder. He had to take time off from swimming to recuperate and think if he should push through with an operation that would potentially end or pick up his swimming career. The surgery was a success in the manga, and he was recruited into the Japanese National Swim Team.
12. Miyuki Shirogane – Kaguya-sama: Love Is War
Birthday: September 9
Just like any Virgo who would like to think of their plans before executing them, Miyuki has been plotting ways to get Kaguya to confess to him. Sadly, his plans don’t always work out too well, or at all. Miyuki is the male lead for the anime Kaguya-sama: Love is War. Miyuki transferred to Shuchi’in Academy, where he first served the Student Council as a general affairs officer. However, after developing a crush on Kaguya, he adopted his current personality and became the Student Council President to attract her.
11. Tenya Iida – My Hero Academia
Birthday: August 22
Calculative, serious, and having a good track record are common Virgo traits. It is also the characteristic of Tenya from My Hero Academia. However, it is not beyond Tenya to break the rules if it’s in the best interest of his comrades and family.
Tenya is a hero student at U.A. High school and serves as Class 1-A’s representative. He adopted his brother’s hero name, Ingenium, after his brother retired from hero-work due to retaining an injury that no longer allows him to use his quirk. His quirk is called Engine. It gives him incredible running speed and powered-up kicks due to the car engines on his calves.
10. Mimosa Vermillion – Black Clover
Birthday: August 26
Minosa has always been good at reading people beyond what they appear to be. This gives her an edge as a noble and a Magic Knight. Being a step ahead of the others feels like how creators would design Virgo characters.
Mimosa is a noble hailing from the Clover Kingdom’s House Vermillion. Not only does she have royal blood, but she is also a trained Magic Knight of the Golden Dawn and even part of the Royal Knights.
9. Kakeru Naruse – Orange
Birthday: September 14
Like Sosuke, Kakeru is another Virgo who hides his true feelings from the public. On the outside, Kakeru is the usual main male character you see in your typical daily life anime. However, once you hear his story, you learn that his character is heartbroken over his mother’s death, and he even wants to kill himself because of the guilt he feels.
Luckily he met someone and promised each other they would keep each other happy for the rest of their lives.
8. Near – Death Note
Birthday: August 24
Death Note has introduced a lot of brilliant characters over its run. Near is another top detective. He might even be more intelligent than his mentor L. Near is one of L’s last successors. After L’s death, Near takes on the case and investigates the case that was left unsolved. After he gathers all his findings in a span of 4 years, he becomes the head of the squad created to take down Kira.
In a one-shot set after the series, Near becomes the third L.
7. Sailor Mercury – Sailor Moon
Birthday: September 10
Given the planet she rules, it’s no surprise that Sailor Mercury is a Virgo and displays the Virgo traits to near perfection. Sailor Mercury’s alter ego is Ami Mizuno, and she is one of the original guardians of the solar system. Oddly enough, despite her being an earth sign, her powers primarily include water and ice elements.
She is also noted to be an intelligent individual and is good with computers. Ami is also the second Sailor Scout to be introduced in the series.
6. Boa Hancock – One Piece
Birthday: September 2
It seems like creators have taken the Virgo trait of hiding behind false emotions as a means to create a lot of stories with deep and haunting background stories. Boa is one of those characters. This Virgo hides all her weaknesses and damage behind a wall of arrogance and cruelty.
Boa is the Pirate Empress of the Kuja Pirates and used to serve as the only female Warlord of the Sea before the group was disbanded. She is also a ruler called the Snake Princess in Amazon Lily, where she rules with her two younger sisters.
In the anime, she is first introduced as an antagonist, serving as the Big Bad for the Amazon Lily Arc. However, she returns as an ally for the other arcs after falling in love with Luffy.
5. Kazutora Hanemiya – Tokyo Revengers
Birthday: September 16
There aren’t many in here that are not in line with their sign, but Kazutaro from Tokyo Revengers is one of those who do not match their astrological sign at all. Kazutaro seems to make decisions based on his emotions, not the best choice and something Virgos do not do.
Kazutaro is one of the founding members of the Tokyo Manji Gang and served as the first division vice-captain. However, Kazutaro gave up the position when he joined Valhalla and became the leader of the Anti-Toman force. Unfortunately, after the Bloody Halloween fight, he was sentenced to spend ten years in a detention center.
4. Emma – The Promised Neverland
Birthday: August 22
With the way Emma looks and her personality, you might not think she’s a Virgo. However, once you see how incredibly smart this child is, her sign starts to make sense. Emma plays a vital role in the successful escape of the orphans from the Grace Field House.
Emma is one of the more energetic and optimistic orphans. In addition, she has displayed an incredible ability to learn and absorb information and is also pretty good when it comes to her physical abilities.
3. Zenitsu Agatsuma – Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba
Birthday: September 3
Zenitsu is probably one of the most nervous characters in the Demon Slayer series. While being nervous is indeed a Virgo trait, Zenitsu just went to the extreme version of the trait. Zenitsu is one of Tanjiro’s fellow Demon Slayer friends, along with Inosuke Hashibara. He has a cowardly personality but is quite competent in battle.
In the story’s epilogue, he and Nezuko had gotten married and raised a family together based on their descendants.
2. Hange Zoe – Attack on Titan
Birthday: September 5
She might come off a bit on the crazy side, but Hange knows it’s essential to study the titans in order to understand how to get rid of them. She’s also one of the members of the Survey corps that wants to research and use Eren’s power to their benefit. During her lifetime, Hange was in charge of inventing new weapons for the Corps and doing research on the Titans. She was promoted as commander after Erwin’s death but was succeeded by Armin soon after.
1. Kakashi Hatake – Naruto
Birthday: September 15
His earlier years under Minato showed Kakashi as your typical Virgo. However, as Kakashi grew up and became a teacher of his own, he became more likable and friendly to other people. Nevertheless, Kakashi still shows a great tactical side of him, one of the Virgo traits that never left him.
Kakashi is said to be one of Konoha’s talented ninjas, even serving as the village’s Sixth Hokage for some time till Naruto eventually succeeded him. In the first series, he was a jonin ranked Ninja who became the instructor of Team 7. He wasn’t a very big team player back in his youth, so now he teaches the importance of teamwork to his current students. After his team’s death, he served the village as one of the Anbu forces but was removed after the Uchiha clan massacre in fear that he might become someone like Itachi.
In Boruto, the series, Kakashi is still present and assists Naruto with his duties as Hokage.
