Sagittarians (November 22nd – December 21st) belong to the Fire element of the zodiac, alongside Aries, and Leo. They are ruled by Jupiter, which is the planet of growth and abundance. Sagittarians are represented with the archer, and they are always looking for intellectual, or spiritual adventures. In fact, Sagittarians are very curious people who crave for knowledge. With their sense of humor, Sagittarians attract friends and lovers; what's more, they are very good story-tellers, but beware, because their tongue is very sharp, and it can hurt badly, hiding behind the “I'm just speaking the truth here!” statement. As can be seen, Sagittarians are speakers, more than listeners, and with their knowledge, they like to talk a lot, even though they could come off as arrogant at times. However, they cherish friendship and family more than anything else! In this article, we tried to guess what anime Sagittarians would enjoy watching, so stick with us to discover our picks!
1. Death Note
- Episodes: 37
- Aired: Oct 2006 – Jun 2007
Light Yagami is a high school student stumbling upon the Death Note one day. The object belonged to a god of death, therefore writing a name on it means the death of that person whose name was written. Light, deploring the state of the world, tests the Death Note and realizes that it actually works. Recognizing the huge power in his hands, he decides to extinguish all the criminals, becoming the god of a new world. But the best and most eccentric detective is about to destroy Light's plans...
Death Note can be seen as an intellectual adventure for Sagittarians. In fact, all the mind games that Light and L – the detective – play to each other will ignite a Sagittarians' curiosity, leaving them craving to know the outcome of their duel. What's more, the action-packed scenes, and the feeling of being on a razor will make a Sagittarians stick to this show until the very end!
2. One Punch Man
- Episodes: 12
- Aired: Oct 2015 – Dec 2015
One day, Saitama decides to become a hero, so he trains himself in superhuman conditions, becoming invincible and winning every battle with just one single punch. Being so strong, though, makes him frustrated as he no longer feels the adrenaline of a battle. Genos is a cyborg asking Saitama to become his disciple; he manages to persuade Saitama into joining the Hero Association, and the two of them start looking for more powerful enemies, seeking the emotions that fighting brought him before becoming the strongest man!
Just like they are humorous people, Sagittarians love humor, and comedy! But they do love action, too. That's why One Punch Man is the perfect candidate for a show a Sagittarius would watch. Saitama is a funny character, as exactly as a Sagittarian, he has no patience for long explanations: it's easy for a Sagittarian to like him. What's more, as a fan of the dynamism, Sagittarians would enjoy the action-packed scenes and fights! Be sure to watch season 2 which is jam-packed with more action!
3. Zankyou no Terror (Terror in Resonance)
- Episodes: 11
- Aired: Jul 2014 – Sep 2014
A terrorist attack on a nuclear facility in Japan ends with only one word written in red: “VON”. The police are trying to find the culprits, but it seems impossible to fathom who was behind the attack. It's only six months later that something begins moving: two teenagers, calling themselves Sphinx, upload a video on the internet, claiming that they will destroy Tokyo. In the beginning, the entire matter looks like a joke, but Sphinx aren't joking at all, and they start sewing chaos and mayhem in the city!
We think a Sagittarius would watch and enjoy Zankyou no Terror, because on one side it ignites a Sagittarius' craving for knowledge. On the other side, as we know that Sagittarians cherish friendship, in Zankyou no Terror they will find this theme as the very cornerstone of the entire show. Moreover, this is an adrenaline-filled show, that will leave a Sagittarian with bated breath!
4. Prison School
- Episodes: 12
- Aired: Jul 2015 – Sep 2015
Initially, Hachimitsu Private Academy was a prestigious all-girls boarding school, but a revision of the school's policy now allows the boys to enroll, as well. Five boys get accepted, but they find themselves quickly ostracized and overpowered by the girls. Unable to properly interact with them, the five boys decide to peep into the girls' bath, but they get found out, and thrown into the school's prison. Each of them will learn, at their own expense, what the word “punishment” means to the terrifying girls!
With Prison School, Sagittarians will like for sure the camaraderie among the five boys, and the mutual trust they will come to build up. Outnumbered by the girls, the boys will use their brains to “defeat” them. Just like Sagittarians are humorous people, they like a burst of good laughter, so these five boys' deeds will delight them for sure.
- Episodes: 24
- Aired: Apr 2011 – Sep 2011
The self-proclaimed “mad scientist” Rintarou Okabe, Mayuri Shiina and Hashida Itaru spend their time in a room in Akihabara. Okabe tries to create future gadgets, Hashida doesn't take his eyes off his laptop, and Mayuri is just a presence. One day, the Phone Microwave created by Okabe starts working for real. As it turns out, it can send emails to the past, modifying future events. But it's only when a tragic event takes place, that it will prove to be very useful...
We think that for a Sagittarian, Steins;Gate could be yet another intellectual trip, this time to the future and back. If it's true that Steins;Gate is able to ignite every viewer's curiosity, for a Sagittarian who is always up for a mental challenge, this show is like their piece of cake! What's more, this is a thriller show, and we know Sagittarians crave the thrill more than anything else. If you add the friendship, and romantic themes, you can understand why we picked this for Sagittarius-born people!
This is how our list came to an end! These are our choices we think a Sagittarius would watch. Knowing Sagittarians' personality traits, we acted accordingly trying to find those shows that could embrace their general tastes.
