Hey… Do you know that most characters in anime and manga have birthdays??

A lot of our favorite characters have sanctified birthdays, which may seem a little absurd at first. The truth is, you don’t have to believe me. If you’re interested in learning more about your favorite fictional characters, a fast online search can frequently yield a goldmine of data.

The creator’s dedication to creating realistic characters is evident in the minute attention to detail that has gone into each scene. It is not a strict law, but the zodiac sign of the character’s birth is reflected in their personality or viewpoint.

As we look at anime characters born in December under the Sagittarius and Capricorn zodiac signs, feel free to form your own opinions.

This is a list of my favorite December-born anime characters. In the course of compiling rankings and birthday dates from various web sources, I have compiled this list of 10 or so characters (male and female) who I believe are the best anime characters born this month.

Let me know if I missed any December-born anime or manga characters that you’re familiar with as you read this article. Post your choices in the comments section below! 🙂

12. & 11. Mitsuha Miyamazu and Taki Tachibana (Kimi no Na wa)

Taki Tachibana (Kimi no Na wa)

Date of Birth: 1st December

The lone body-switching couple on this list appears in the first entry for December… Mitsuha Miyamazu and Taki Tachibana are the authors.

Mitsuha is a Gifu Prefecture high school student from a small rural hamlet. To one day live the life of a high school student in Tokyo, she has a wish. This is a frightful Friday. Taki and Miyamazu must communicate with each other about their experiences, which helps them both grow as personalities, because the metamorphosis is only temporary. Despite the fact that they never meet until the very end of the novel, these conversations lead to the two falling in love.

Mitsuha and Taki are the perfect couple if you’re looking for a romantic comedy with strong female leads.

10. Mai Sakurajima (Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Sempai no Yume wo Minai)

December 2 is my birthday.

Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Sempai no Yune wo Minai stars Mai Sakurajima as the title character.

At Minegahara High School, she is a well-known actress and model. Mai is a kind, thoughtful, considerate, and level-headed young woman.

As a result of the circumstances, Mai’s classmates don’t seem to notice her at all. In the library, Mai disguises herself as a rabbit to maintain her privacy, but this time, someone takes notice. Mai embarks on a voyage of personal growth and discovery after a chance encounter.

For Mai Sakurajima’s life and relationships, the Sagittarii traits are fully adopted and embraced.

9. Megumin (Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku o!)

Megumin (Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku o!)

Date of Birth: 4th December

Kazuma Sato’s traveling companion is Megumin, an arch mage of the Crimson Demon Clan.

When it comes to theatrics, she’s got a natural ability. This is logical, since fire is the element of Sagittarius, and Megumin was saved by an elder magician. In addition, she will faint from weariness if she uses this power more than once. Megumin is Kazuma’s mischievous younger brother and the driving force behind the group’s heroic endeavors. This, I believe, is the reason she is one of my all-time favorite anime heroines!

It’s a tidbit of trivia… Boys in Japan call ladies named Megumi “Megumin,” which means “blessed” in Japanese.

8. Lelouch vi Britannia (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion)

Afternoon of the 5th of December, 1999

Lelouch vi Britannia is Anime Planet’s current fan favorite when viewed through the prism of December births.

The Eleventh Prince of the Holy Britannian Empire is Lelouch vi Britannia, the protagonist of Code Geass. He learns the truth about his mother’s death after being exiled to Japan by his father. Because of this, he is inspired to become a revolutionary by his growing resentment of the misery inflicted on the populace by royal families.

For the sake of justice and equality, Lelouch vi Britannia ends up becoming exactly what he despises. It’s simple to see why Lelouch vi Britannia was voted number one by anime fans for three years in a row.

7. Earl Ciel Phantomhive (Kuroshitsuji)

Ciel Phantomhive from Kuroshitsuji - Black Butler

1875 12 14th birthday

Ciel Phantomhive, the shrewd protagonist of the Black Butler anime series, is just 13 years old.

Ciel and his twin brother were sold to a religious cult as children by their family’s murders. Ciel enters into a covenant with a demon in order to retaliate for his brother’s death. When Ciel and his “black butler” discover his life is in ruins, they set out to repair the family mansion and recover the family money. In order to realize a childhood ambition of his, Ciel sets up the Funtom Corporation. Even as he advances in his career, he never loses sight of his ultimate goal: extracting vengeance on those who wronged his family.

The predicament of the Earl of Phantomhive and his resolve to restore the world by defeating the family’s adversaries will resonate with anime viewers.

6. Megumi Tadokoro (Shokugeki no Souma)

Date of Birth: 19th December

Definitely… The waifu for the month of December is none other than Megumi Tadokora. Chef Megumi is currently a student at the Ttsuki Culinary Academy, which is considered to be one of the best in Japan. She comes across as a bit mousy and insecure of her powers in the early episodes of the anime. Megumi’s primary beliefs of helping others and being a decent person are never sacrificed in the face of these personal difficulties.

Megumi Tadokora is the embodiment of hospitality in this food shnen. It’s not hard to see why some followers see her as their ideal wife. Unfortunately, Megumi Tadokora has her sights set on Sma Yukihira.

5. Levi Ackerman (Shingeki no Kyojin)

Levi Ackerman

Date of Birth: 25th December

We’d be remiss if we didn’t include Levi Ackerman from Shingeki no Kyojin on this list.

Born to a prostitute, Levi grows up on the streets of New York City, where he is taught to be a tyrannical thug. As a result of Erwin Smith’s guidance and encouragement, he overcomes his difficult childhood and rises to the rank of Special Operations Squad Captain.

Levi Ackerman, as a Capricorn, is a master of self-control and a natural leader capable of inspiring his team, laying out clear goals, and motivating them to achieve them. This may make him appear cold, but his ultimate desire is to safeguard all human life, even if that life is that of a giant. It’s impossible not to admire Levi’s life narrative and dedication to his career.

4. Misa Amane (Death Note)

In the year of 1984, I was born.

Here is a character I consider one of the best tragically flawed anime characters ever… Misa Amane, if you’re reading this.

This young model, affectionately referred to as “Misa” by her admiring followers, is over over heels in love with Death Note artist Light Yagami. To thwart L’s investigation, Light emotionally manipulates Misa into becoming an armed robber. As a result, government officials arrest Misa and subject her to torture in an effort to learn the truth about the unexplained killings sweeping the country. As long as Light is by her side, she cannot envision a world without him.

At the time of this writing, Misa Amane is one of Anime Planet’s top 100 favorite anime characters.

3. & 2. Rin and Yukio Okumura (Ao No Exorcist)

Yukio Okumura (Ao No Exorcist)

The date of my birth is 27 December 1995.

Ao No Exorcist centers on the Okumura twins Rin and Yukio.

The brothers, who claim to be Satan’s children, are on a crusade to overthrow their father. Yukio has been promoted to instructor of the exorcist class at the Academy of the True Cross, where he is a student. As exorcists, the brothers must be careful since they could face severe consequences if they go too far.

Rin and Yukio show that you can’t judge a book by its cover, despite its lineage, by gaining the trust and respect of their peers.

1. Hinata Hyuuga (Naruto)

December 27 is my birthday.

Hinata Hyuuga, a kunoichi beloved by anime fans, is the final entry on this month’s list.

When Hinata was a child, her father disowned her because he viewed her as a naive leader, which was harsh, but it was the truth. While other shnen heroines go over the top, Hinata keeps her ability to be a strong leader, a skilled ninja, and a doting mother.

The “Byakugan Princess,” as she is referred to in the Naruto series, is impossible to resist for fans.
