In addition to stats like gender, location, and magical powers, anime characters often have canon birthdays. Not only does this give dedicated fans a chance to celebrate their favorite characters once a year, but it also reveals their astrological sign. Sometimes, it seems like the creators were choosing their characters' signs with their personalities in mind because they exhibit most, if not all of the signs' signature traits. At other times, it seems like their sign wasn't considered.
With that in mind, let's take a look at Cancer sign anime characters - characters who were born between June 22nd and July 22nd. The fourth sign in the zodiac cycle is a water sign that's represented by the crab. Cancers are deeply empathetic, social people who are known for their powerful caretaking abilities - but they can easily slide into codependency and even self-harm when life is going badly. Izuku Midoriya of My Hero Academia is a great example of this phenomenon - he desperately wants to be a hero and help those in need, but he's so serious about it that he accidentally hurts himself in the process. Other characters, like Ichigo Kurosaki of Bleach, exhibit few if any Cancer traits.
