And while anime does encompass a lot of different genres, astrology is rarely – if ever – the focus of anime series, which makes sense. Astrology is a Western concept and the Japanese have their own concepts which aren’t necessarily related to what Westerners group under astrology. Japanese anime characters have their birthdays but they aren’t generally associated with astrological signs, which is why we are going to do exactly that for you.
In this article, we are going to focus on characters born under the sign of Aquarius. This list is going to contain a total of 20 Aquarius characters, ordered by their general likeability. The list is going to contain characters from various different series, characters of different affiliations, genders, occupations and whatnot, but with one common trait – their astrological sign.
When are Aquarius Born?
People born under the sign of Aquarius are born between January 21 and February 20 according to the traditional Western calendar. Individuals born under the sign of Aquarius are often quirky and unconventional. Sometimes their eccentricities are obvious — they may have an unusual sense of humor, or have interests that others do not. Other times, Aquarians will have very small, quirky, and sometimes amusing eccentricities which only become apparent as one gets to know them.
