Many of our favorite anime characters are Libra! Libra anime characters are generally associated with a balanced life, which is fairly representative of Libra philosophy.
They’re consistently charming and diplomatic regardless of whether they are extroverts or introverts. With all the good does come some bad traits. They can at times be manipulative, people-pleasers, and sometimes have a desire to please.
Let’s take a look at the best Libra characters from anime below.
Mink, DRAMAtical Murder
Birthday: September 26th
Mink is one of the stars of the series DRAMAtical Murder and is the charming leader of a gang of ex-convicts known as Scratch. He is perceived by others as ruthless, and hedonistic due to his outlook and actions.
At first glance, he appears cold and heartless but, he does have the classic charisma traits that Libra’s are known for. Because of his Libra inclinations, he excels as a leader and it’s no coincidence that he has an intimidating appearance.
He is extremely concerned with the way he is perceived by others and thus, is meticulous in maintaining his looks for others.
Silica, Sword Art Online
Birthday: October 4th
Silica is a competent fighter and one of the players featured in Sword Art Online. As one of the most well known Beast Tamers in the game, she was the first to obtain a Feathered Little Dragon.
As a Libra, she must have a good social life and surround herself with awesome friends in the game.
In the wake of Silica’s success, she developed a bit of an ego. Luckily, since Libras are generally grounded people, she eventually recognizes this and begins to correct her ways.
Kyoko Kirigiri, DanganRonpa
Birthday: October 6
Kyoko Kirigiri Famous quote: “No matter what happens, don’t give up on hope. I shall always be by your side.” (To Makoto)
The daughter of Jin Krirgiri, Kyoko Kirigiri is one of the six main characters from the DanganRonpa series and is the Ultimate Detective.
Kyouko is a young mysterious, tall 19 year old beautiful anime girl. She previously thought she was 17 because she suffers from amnesia.
Her pale skin and purple eyes are accompanied by her light purple hair styled in a side braid with a black ribbon tied around it. Combined with a short skirt and knee-high boots, her outfit features an all-purple collared jacket over a white blouse and tie.
Despite most of the horrors that occur in her life, she remains unfazed and manages to stay calm. Kirigiri is able to see things objectively and doesn’t jump to conclusions, making her a strong ally to Naegi.
Later, she becomes quite close to Naegi, even hinting at some kind of attraction between them. Kirigiri realizes she’s been putting her own desires ahead of his safety when Naegi allows himself to be found guilty in Chapter 5.
Kirigiri is an emotional person, but she hides it behind her stone-cold exterior. When Alter Ego mentions her father, she sometimes lets her emotions get the better of her.
Gintoki Sakata, Gintama
Birthday: October 10
Gintoki Sakata (坂田 銀時, Sakata Gintoki) is the main protagonist of the manga Gintama turned anime series.
Gintoki is an anime guy that can come across as very selfish and super lazy but the truth is, he’s a hero. He often defends those who can’t fight for themselves and never breaks a promise.
He runs a business called Yorozuya, where he charges small fees to do all kinds of odd jobs. Kagura, an alien girl, and Shimura Shinpachi, a young samurai-in-training, help him run the business.
Before Gintoki was a Joui patriot he was raised and trained alongside Takasugi and Katsura by Master Yoshida Shoyou the founder of the Shouka Sonjuku.
The school was burnt down during the Kansai Purge and Yoshida Shoyou was arrested by Tensho Sect. Tied down, Gintoki had to watch helplessly as his teacher was taken away. It was then that Shoyou left everything in Gintoki’s hands and promised he would return.
With a desperate attempt to rescue their teacher, Gintoki, Katsura, and Takasugi, rose up as the last warriors of the Joui Patriots and went to war.
I don’t want to give any spoilers for this one so you’ll have to watch to find out if they make it in time to save their master.
Minako Aino, Sailor Moon
Birthday: October 22, 1978
Minako Aino is the alter ego of Sailor Venus and one of the main protagonists in the popular Sailor Moon series. She was initially known as Sailor V at the start of Sailor Moon and Sailor Moon Crystal series.
She is the guardian of love and is protected by Venus, which is the planet of beauty. Sailor Venus helps Sailor Moon and the other Sailor Scouts save the world from the baddies.
Known as Mina in the English anime version she was seen to have a humorous silly side as well as a serious one.
Asuna Yuuki, Sword Art Online
Birthday: September 30th
Famous Asuna Yuuki Quote: I’d rather stay myself until the very end than sit and rot away at an inn, back in the first town. Even if I get killed by a monster, I don’t want to lose to this game… to this world… no matter what. „
Asana Yuki is stunning and is easily recognizable for her long orangey-brown chestnut hair, and hazel eyes. Early on in her training, she wears a dark red leather tunic, a light copper breastplate, leather pants, boots, and a hooded cape. When she joins “Knights of the Blood”, Lisbeth makes her a rapier called Lambent Light that she wields and wears a red and white uniform that all KoB members wear.
She is the daughter of the former CEO of RECTO Progress Inc who took charge of the Sword Art Online servers and the waifu of Kirito, who is the former vice commander of the “Knights of the Blood” guild.
It’s funny what love does to people. Before meeting Kirito, Asuna didn’t really care about dying in the game and acted like a typical tsundere. Meeting her husband completely changed the way she views life. Kirito becomes her guiding light and she goes for when she needs help.
Similar to Kirito, Asuna does not abandon a helping hand, even if her own life is at risk. Before Kirito tells her to have a little fun with SAO, she takes the game very seriously and is focused on clearing it.
Asuna is somewhat proud and won’t back down from anyone who challenges her authority or abilities. When they disagreed about how to handle a Floor Boss, she challenged Kirito to a duel. She doesn’t feel shy about acting out on her own and will speak her mind from time to time when it’s necessary.
Birthday: October 16
Yūichirō Hyakuya is the main character of the Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign manga.
His squad is part of the Moon Demon Company and the Japanese Imperial Demon Army. “Seraph of the End” is the story’s focal point and he, Mikaela Hyakuya, and a few others possess the “seraph” gene.
Due to the tragedies he experienced as a child, Yu grew up antisocial and moody. When he was a child, he hated himself and believed no one would love him. However, he clung to hope that he would someday find good in this world.
Yu eventually becomes a kind and fiery young man. His only goal is to exterminate all vampires because they killed his “family.” Yu faces any type of challenge in attempting to accomplish his goal.
Eventually, he is revealed to have a soft side, worrying more about his friends than his goals. As a result, Yu empathizes with others who put their family first.
He focuses on being patient and calmer which allows him to make more friends. He changes his view on Mika even though he is a vampire and they become friends.
Despite the fact that his best friend is now a vampire, Yu still slaughters them without mercy or hesitation. His squad members become closer to him after Shinjuku, and he makes Guren promise to help him reclaim Mika.
Aside from all this, Yu shows to have a unique sense of humor, as you’ll see when he teased Shinoa about her height.
Kirito (Sword Art Online)
Birthday: October 7
Sword Art Online is the first massively multiplayer online role-playing game ever to use Virtual Reality, and Kirito served as one of the 1000 beta testers for the closed beta. Later, he was recruited for the game’s official release.
Sword Art Online then trapped him as a solo main character among the 10,000 other players. As a member of the Clearers, he actively participated in Boss battles, taking on the role of a Beater to reduce discrimination against former beta testers.
Having escaped a dangerous dungeon with the Moonlit Black Cats, Kirito became a member of the guild but returned to being a solo player after a fatal error led to the deaths of the other guild members.
A wager Kirito lost to Heathcliff caused him to join the Knights of the Blood near the end of the game. Ultimately, Kirito eliminated the final boss, thus completing the game.
Occasionally, he is quite overconfident and appears rude to others, and can be quite difficult to understand. In spite of this, Kazuto is actually a kind, helpful person.
Kirito chose to become a scapegoat when players accused him of withholding information that led to Diavel’s death during the 1st Floor Boss battle.
Thus, he ensured that the players would not become victims of unnecessary hatred by taking all of their animosity upon himself. Additionally, he frequently comforts others who suffer hardships, like Silica after she lost Pina.
Occasionally, Kazuto allows his emotions to control him, as he is a very emotional person. His personal tragedies had haunted him until he married Asuna in Sword Art Online.
Kirito is a person with a wonderfully strong resolve, willing to do whatever it takes to achieve something he holds dear to his heart without hesitation.

During the Survey Corps he served as the 13th commander. Known for his brilliant mind and resourcefulness, he was credited with creating new tactics that reduced losses during operations greatly. He was however exceptionally brutal when it came to protecting humanity.
Although Erwin trusts his men, he realizes that there is a spy interfering with the Scouting Legion and arranges for his/her capture. In the war tribunal in which Eren was judged or during the recruitment branches selection, he is an excellent orator, able to sway many people.
He accepts news he receives with the same attitude regardless of how good or bad it is, as he knows what his objectives are and what he will do to achieve them.
Birthday: September 23

He is smart and has a great mindset which is seen in his friendships and personal relationships. He’s kind, quirky, and a popular good looking anime boy.
The Heroine is demanding and asks for messages often but he doesn’t always know what to write so he will often just say good night and good morning.
It’s not that he doesn’t want to talk to her, he just doesn’t know what to say, but his love for her is very sincere. It’s obvious that he doesn’t have much experience with dating.
Emilla (RE Zero)
Birthday: September 23
Starting Life in Another World follows the story of Emilia, the main protagonist from the dark anime/fantasy series, RE Zero. Her appearances in the series also extend to various short stories, video games, and side stories.
Emilia has appeared in several television projects in the “Isekai” series genre, including the 2019 comedy crossover television series Isekai Quartet.
In the elven village of Elior Forest, Emilia was raised by her late father’s sister Fortuna, over a hundred years before the events of the story. Emilia’s village was destroyed as a result of an attack by Vanity and her ally when she was a child.
Emelia, grieving for her loved ones, froze the entire village as well as its surviving inhabitants, as well as herself. Emilia was eventually defrosted by the artificial spirit Puck, who became her only confidante and friend.
After living alone together in Elior Forest for years, Emilia and Puck both met a powerful wizard named Roswaal L. Mathers. According to Mathers, she would one day become one of the five possible candidates to lead the nation they presided over – Lugunica.
Emilia is five feet and three inches tall has violet eyes that are tinged with a bluish tint and her long silver wavy hair often cascades down to her hips.
Half-elves have pointed ears, a characteristic that earned Emilia ire for her alleged descent from the Witch of Envy when coupled with her somewhat red hair and brown eyes.
She possessed both youthful softness and maturity in her beautiful face. With a touch of refined elegance, Emilia was gifted with a bewitching charm.
Emilia cares for others and has a good nature, but doesn’t admit to this. Instead, she perceives selfishness as it is. Emilia refrains from sharing her burdens and opening up to others due to this very stubborn nature.
Hijiribe Ruri ( Durarara!!)
Birthday: September 27th
Despite appearing unlikable, Ruri Hijiribe is an idol by day. This quiet girl began her career as a make-up artist, which makes more sense. Her interest in macabre and horror films makes her a bit of an oddball. It’s not that strange when you realize that she moonlights as a serial killer.
Although she doesn’t necessarily fit into the usual stereotype of an introverted Libra, she is attracted to fame as a musical artist as well as a serial killer – even if she is a more introverted Libra. Her Libra qualities allow her to successfully manage two separate spotlights while juggling a double life.
Misaki Ayuzawa (Kaichou wa Maid-sama!)
Birthday: September 29th
At Seika High School, Misaki Ayuzawa was the student council president. “She became known as the Demon President for her strict, unforgiving leadership. However, she is much more than your typical model student. In order to earn money, she works at a Maid Cafe during her after-school hours.
Libras are accustomed to taking on leadership roles naturally, as Misaki does. In addition to being a top student, she is also very concerned about her appearance.
Masayoshi Hazama (Samurai Flamenco)
Birthday: September 29th
Male model Masaoshi Hazama, who is also fascinated with superheroes, is a successful male model. A life of luxury is shattered when he abandons his comfortable double life as a Samurai Flamenco in pursuit of this enduring passion.
While Masaoshi has no doubt found success as a model, he can be a bit naive at times, much to his detriment, but somehow he always manages to triumph no matter what, even when it is through sheer luck.
His vigilante acts demonstrate the classic Libra strength that places people above all else.
Kotoko Aihara (Itazura Na Kiss)
Birthday: September 28th
The smartest boy at her school has captured the heart of Kotoko Aihara. While he may be out of Kotoko’s league, she will not give up easily and will use all the strength in her soul to win his heart. An earthquake complicates her plans when she is left with no other place to stay but his house.
Kotoko may not be a saint, but she is a Libra who gains her way by charm. Despite her clumsiness, she is a bit of a space cadet. While she seems like a tsundere to others, she is warm and kind inside. Additionally to her charisma, she is extremely idealistic and a bit of a dreamer – traits that can be found in many Libras.
Karin Maaka (Chibi Vampire)
Birthday: October 13th
Karin Makaa is known as what’s called a reverse vampire, which means she actually gives blood instead of draining it. As she produces too much blood, she must inject it into others instead of drinking it.
This is a blessing and a curse as every time she gets embarrassed she gets an unfortunate nosebleed. She is not allergic to things like sunlight or water like many vampires are.
This kawaii 16-year old’s physical appearance is something that draws her quite a bit of attention. Additionally, she is particularly sensitive to social pressures – this is exacerbated if she is in the presence of human suffering. Karin is no exception to this tendency, as she finds it hard to see others upset or in pain.
Maximillion Pegasus (Yu-Gi-Oh!)
Birthday: October 8th
The genius behind Duel Monsters Cards is Maximillion Pegasus, an extremely intelligent person who calculates his actions as meticulously as his appearance would suggest. He is one of the series’ most memorable antagonists due to his affinity for cartoons.
Pegasus exhibits some of the worst traits Libra anime characters. He can be manipulative and, unfortunately, extremely narcissistic.
Naruto Uzumaki (NARUTO)
Birthday: October 10th
In his oath of allegiance to the Konohagakure, Naruto Uzumaki is a young shinobi. He is easily one of the most well recognized faces on this Libra anime characters list. Despite the fact that Naruto doesn’t fit neatly into this star sign, the character is a Libra.
Only someone endowed with Libra charm will be able to pull off the over-the-top, unapologetic manner in which he carries himself. It is this same appeal that drew the moths towards him throughout the series.
Although he has strong values concerning things like friendship and people, his need for attention and admiration is overtly Libran, a common fault associated with this sign.
Conclusion On The Best Libra Anime Characters

There is no way to determine a person’s personality through their star sign, but it is certainly fun to use it as a tool for self-reflection. Characters sharing your sign can sometimes be quite surprising.
