Shonen protagonists take viewers on action-packed journeys to defeat enemies, save lives, and achieve sky-high goals, but they aren't all driven by the same motivation and personality. While the prototypical shonen hero is a brash, courageous person who never gives up, when you dig deeper into the genre, you find more traits than just the conventional ones. What's more, you can link some of those traits to characteristics exhibited by the 12 zodiac signs.
You're the main character of your own exciting life story, but which story, and which protagonist, resonates most with you? Do your personality flaws match your zodiac sign? Are you a Libra like Goku from Dragon Ball Z, so dedicated to balance and fairness that you'll even help out your enemy to repay him for aiding you? Or are you a Cancer like Izuku Midoriya of My Hero Academia, caring so deeply about other people's safety that you put yourself at risk? Just like with Naruto characters based on zodiac signs, you can consult the stars and discover your true shonen anime self.
