  • When an Aries has a goal in mind, they'll attack it in the most direct way possible. To avoid being murdered by man-eating Titans, Eren Jaeger lives confined behind seemingly impenetrable walls. When the monsters breach the walls and kill half of his village - including his mother - Eren's fiery Arien nature has him hellbent on revenge.

    While his sign gives him the strength to keep fighting in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds, it also makes him reckless. Without Mikasa's unrelenting drive to protect him, Armin's tendency to think things through, or Levi's willingness to kick his butt if he doesn't listen to orders, this stubborn Aries might have gotten himself killed ages ago.

  • Ask any Taurus what they value most, and you'll get a variety of answers, but most of them appreciate creature comforts. This sign loves good food and luxury, but doesn't like to have to give up money or time to get it. Saitama might be the strongest person alive, but he loves his downtime in front of the TV and making sure he gets his groceries cheap.

    Of course, there's more to Saitama than being lazy and miserly. He also channels the bull-like strength of Taurus, enduring an intense daily regimen of 100 pushups, 100 situps, and 100 squats, followed by a 10-kilometer sprint. He might love lounging around, but when he's truly motivated to do something, he's an unstoppable force.

  • Those born under the twin sign of Gemini often have such complex personalities, they can seem like two different people, depending on the circumstances. This principle certainly applies to Gintoki Sakata, a war veteran who runs an odd jobs business.

    On the one hand, Gintoki is a quick-witted, sarcastic, lazy person who refuses to pay his rent and loves dishing out insults. But Gintoki also has a more vulnerable side to his personality; he cares deeply for his loved ones, and his experiences during the Joui War had a far more significant impact on his emotional life than he's willing to admit.

  • Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Izuku Midoriya

    Izuku Midoriya's most cherished wish is to become a professional hero. He doesn't want it for the fame or the glory; he wants it because protecting other people is his instinct. Without even considering his safety, Izuku jumps right into conflict, thinking only of saving lives. Even before he has any powers to speak of, he tries to rescue his friend Katsuki Bakugo from a rampaging slime monster. As he trains to become a hero, he repeatedly injures himself in the pursuit of protecting others. He interrupts his competition against Shoto Todoroki to help him work through an emotional issue that's holding him back, even though this makes Shoto more likely to defeat him.

    His tendency toward self-sacrifice stems from his Cancer nature. Cancers are emotionally intelligent people who value other people's happiness and safety above all else - including themselves. Izuku takes this Water sign's tendency to ignore one's own needs to the extreme.
