Late September is the time of year when teachers, students, and parents are starting to settle into their new routines after the back-to-school rush has slowed down, and Halloween lovers are whipping out the skeletons and cobwebs to prepare for the first major holiday since the Fourth of July. It’s not just pumpkin spice season: it’s Libra season.
Libra is the astrological sign of people born between September 23 and October 22. It is an air sign represented by a set of scales. While balance is generally very important to a Libra, oftentimes those scales tip and a Libra falls under one of two extremes: calm and wise, or headstrong and ambitious. Here are 12 Libra anime characters that prove how much of a range in personalities Libras can have!
First, the calm and wise:
Momo Yaoyorozu (My Hero Academia) – September 23
Class 1A couldn’t have picked a better Vice Representative: Momo’s intelligence and humility distinguish her from her peers and give her the makings of an excellent hero.
Kyoko Kirigiri (Danganronpa) – October 6
In a scenario where the lives of you and your classmates depend on identifying the culprit in a murder trial, having an Ultimate Detective on your side can certainly come in handy!
Tetsuya Yuki (Ace of Diamond) – October 8
As captain of a prestigious baseball team, Yuki is an admirable leader both on and off the mound.
Tsukasa Shishio (Dr. Stone) – October 10
Tsukasa may be “The Strongest High School Primate,” but he isn’t all brawn and no brains: he has a clear vision for the world he wants to create, and strategically builds his kingdom using the people he knows will be best suited to achieving his goals.
Erwin Smith (Attack On Titan) – October 14
As Commander of the titan-slaying Scout Regiment, Erwin is responsible for countless soldiers’ lives—and deaths. His strength, wisdom, and foresight inspire the scouts to ride into battle at his command.
Akihiko Kaji (Given) – October 21
Sometimes Akihiko is a little TOO laid-back for his own good, which unintentionally causes strife in his relationships while simultaneously somehow making him more endearing.
And on the opposite side of the scale, the headstrong and ambitious:
Aoi Toudou (Jujutsu Kaisen) – September 23
It may be a little off-putting that Toudou gauges his opinions of people based on what type of girl they like, but if you have the same taste as him, you’ve earned yourself a best friend for life!
Joseph Joestar (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure) – September 27
With his bold, entertaining personality, it’s no wonder that Joseph is the only Joestar that appears in not one, not two, but three parts of the series.
Lily Hoshikawa (Zombieland Saga) – October 6
From a child star to an undead idol, Lily never stops entertaining with her high energy and youthful spirit—even beyond the grave!
Irina Jelavić (Assassination Classroom) – October 10
Irina is a bonafide seductress whose charm makes her one of the greatest assassins in the world.
Yuu Nishinoya (Haikyuu!!) – October 10
Despite his small size, Nishinoya is a force to be reckoned with on the volleyball court. Watch out for his Rolling Thunder receive!
Ranpo Edogawa (Bungou Stray Dogs) – October 21
Kyoko isn’t the only detective on this list! There isn’t a case that this genius investigator can’t solve… Well, as long as you can get him to stop eating snacks long enough to solve it.
