As we endlessly search the web for the next series to watch and suddenly find the perfect one, many of us wonder how we have come to our decision. What makes our choice more favorable than others? Could it be because of the hype surrounding a new series? Or maybe it’s a continuation of something we’ve already seen. Perhaps the name or PV is eye-catching.
Looking closer, we notice that everyone’s selection process is different. However, with a handful of options, we can group the outcomes by personality and preference, looking to the cosmos for insight as to why people are drawn to certain types of genres. As such, by checking their horoscope, an otaku may find an anime with a warm, heartfelt plot involving family and close friends because it’s a Virgo trait.
The duration of Virgo is from August 23 – September 22. Virgo’s element is Earth so people under this sign enjoy the natural order of life. In various circumstances, instinct and intuition also guide the Virgo’s path.. Virgo’s symbol is a Maiden. The Maiden’s maternal quality ensures that those around her are nurtured under her care. Virgos are hardworking people, sticking to a practical approach as opposed to theorizing and dwelling on the “what ifs.” Due to Virgo’s diligence, you can be sure that they are also perfectionists. Virgos value quality over quantity, period.
With that being said, we at Honey’s want to share what we believe people under the Virgo sign would watch. Being the sixth sign of twelve, we’ve got some interesting titles for you!
1. Shikioriori (Flavors of Youth)
- Episodes: 3
- Aired: August 4, 2018
An anime that comes to mind when we think of Virgos is Shikioriri (Flavors of Youth). Composed of three stories, the collections of varied adult events draw the characters in each to reflect on their past, and how it has formed them in the present. The stories highlight the types of love that occur in life: the love for family, the passion that drives one to succeed, and romantic love. Embracing the sensual moments that mold one’s character, Virgo, the fair maiden, desires to love and to be loved, holding the world in her hands. Those who fall under this sign live a life that yearns for the heart to sing.
2. Yuru Camp (Laid-Back Camp)
- Episodes: 12
- Aired: January 2018 – March 2018
Another series that fits the bill is Yuru Camp. Here, we are introduced to Rin Shima, a girl who is content calling the mountains the place to go for a little getaway. Rin is pretty good at camping, claiming the base of Mount Fuji as her “home away from home.” As she is on another regular retreat, Nadeshiko Kagamihara, totally lost, suddenly startles Rin and as a result, the two of them camp together. Nadeshiko has her eyes set on scoring the perfect view of Mount Fuji, but fatigue comes over her, falling asleep near Rin’s campsite. As luck would have it, the two of them share a unique experience, until Nadeshiko’s sister picks her up later that night. From that event, the girls wonder if there will ever be another camping trip that is just as exciting.
Virgos are admirers of nature, appreciating the sights, sounds, and smells of the physical world. Mother nature has much to offer and Virgos appreciate its breathtaking beauty. Virgos also look out for their friends and would do anything for them, as long as it is safe and reasonable. Because they value following the rules as well as setting them, you can be sure that a Virgo’s obedience will steer their friends in the right direction. As such, a Virgo’s outdoor adventure can start orderly, but each occasion is never the same.
3. Ballroom e Youkoso (Welcome to the Ballroom)
- Episodes: 24
- Aired: July 2017 – December 2017
Another anime that encompasses Virgo attributes is Ballroom e Youkoso (Welcome to the Ballroom). Ballroom e Youkoso follows the journey of Tatara Fujita, a constant victim of bullying. One day, a professional dancer named Kaname Sengoku comes to his rescue, giving him refuge at his dance studio. There, he meets one of his classmates, Shizuku Hanaoka, whom he admires secretly. Aiming to become a professional dancer, Shizuku sees Tatara’s star potential and decides to take him under her wing. From this moment, Tatara is exposed to new friendships. He’s been given the chance to self-improve, raising his confidence and taking a stand against the bullies. As Tatara takes these steps to success, he gains support and appreciation from the dance community.
Virgos would find Ballroom e Youkoso appealing because, just like Tatara, folks under this sign work exceptionally hard to achieve the highest praise. Additionally, Virgos are selfless, supporting, and loyal. Furthermore, when your spirit is crushed or you feel a sense of disappointment, you can always count on a Virgo to uplift you, driving you towards your greatest potential.
All in all, it sounds like Virgos are some top-notch folks! What would you say? Do you agree or disagree with our picks? With so many series and seasons, our choices only represent a small fraction of Virgo recommendations. As we sign out, let us know your thoughts by leaving us a comment! Thanks and see ya!
