One fun thing about being an anime fan is that many characters come with canonically established birthdays. There are plenty of fun ways to use that information, and one of those ways is to figure out a character's astrological sign. Some characters are perfectly suited toward their astrological signs, displaying all the traits that one might expect them to. At other times, they don't act like their sign at all.
With that in mind, let's turn our attention to anime characters who are Aries. Aries is the first sign in the zodiac cycle. Those born under it are known for their fiery attitudes, a fearless approach to life that can border on recklessness, and their single-minded dedication to achieving their goals. They are easily angered, but they care deeply for their friends and will do anything to protect them. Given those traits, you probably won't be surprised to learn that Eren Jaeger from Attack on Titan is an Aries. The reserved Rei Ayanami of Neon Genesis Evangelion, on the other hand, feels like an unlikely candidate for the fire sign.

This Saiyan warrior possesses many positive Arien traits: he's heroic, he's energetic, he's bold, and he's caring. But while Goku does have some negative traits, they don't really match up with the fire sign's profile - one would be hard-pressed to call Goku bossy or selfish.40964Do you love this Aries?
