Have you ever considered which badass anime woman you have the most in common with? No matter what their gender is, this thought has crossed many anime fans' minds. Awesome female anime characters aren't always perfect – like the star signs, they have both positive and negative traits.

Leos may be courageous leaders, but they can also get a little bit full of themselves, just like Tsunade of Naruto. Sagitarians like Motoko Kusanagi of Ghost in the Shell can take unnecessary risks, but they're also optimistic and deeply philosophical. It's time to find out which female anime character you are based on your zodiac sign.

Represented by the fiery Ram, Aries are unstoppable when it comes to pursuing their goals. Aries energy bestows pride, boldness, and heroism – but it can also lead to stubbornness, arrogance, and reckless behavior. San of Princess Mononoke is a powerful wolf princess with a singular goal: to protect her forest home from anyone who means it harm, and she's willing to do whatever it takes to achieve her goal. That kind of dedication is commendable, but San also channels the dark side of her sign - she rarely stops to consider other points of view and often takes unnecessary risks without stopping to plan ahead.

Like many people born under the star sign Taurus, Touka Kirishima seeks a stable, comfortable life, one which she has never been able to truly achieve as a ghoul. Due to the constant warfare between her species and humans, the female protagonist of Tokyo Ghoul has to spend most of her time either hiding or fighting to survive, and she's deprived of the stability she needs. This leads to the kind of stubborn, excessively cautious personality that is common in Taureans on a bad day. Yet Touka also exhibits some more positive Taurean traits – when she feels comfortable, she can be warm, supportive, and creative.

Fascinating. Charming. Wise. Judgmental. These are all traits Geminis exude with ease – and so does Psycho-Pass's Shion Karanomori, a brilliant analyst and physician who works for the Ministry of Welfare's Public Safety Bureau. Shion is a charismatic woman who doesn't like to be told what to do and who always has an opinion on everyone else's conduct. Despite this tendency towards negativity, she possesses an effortless charm, which easily draws people in to her circle.

Cancers are naturally inclined toward taking care of others, and that's the driving force behind Mikasa Ackerman. Nothing is more important to Mikasa than protecting her adoptive brother Eren Jaeger from both the man-eating beasts who threaten everyone in Attack on Titan and his own reckless behavior. Sometimes, this can get a little stifling for Eren, who has his own goals that don't include being protected. Like many Cancers, Mikasa can sometimes get so wrapped up in caring for others she forgets her own needs, and she can get angry when Eren won't let her look after him.
