If you walked into a party, you would likely see the Libras in the middle of the crowd. They are friendly and social individuals and because they are understanding of others, they can easily make friends and relate to others. This also makes them good romantic partners, particularly for the more hard-headed signs such as Aries and Sagittarius. Their gracious nature cancels out the fiery one and inversely since Libras can be indecisive and avoid confrontation, it balances out the other sign’s more adverse traits. The Libra is an admirable and friendly sign that encompasses individuals born between September 23rd and October 22nd.
Similarly to humans, anime characters can also carry the traits for the signs that they are born under. We are able to analyze these characters because of the depth that their creators put into them. In turn, we can also admire anime that much more by appreciating the amount of work that was put into each show. On this list, we will analyze all the females in anime with birthdays between September 23rd and October 22nd and put them in order by how well they represent not only the positive traits, but also the negative traits of the Libra sign.
10. Irina Jelavic from Ansatsu Kyoushitsu (Assassination Classroom)
- Episodes: 22
- Air Date: January 2015 - June 2015
This busty blonde is about as far from being a respectable teacher as you can get. As a former spy, Irena displays an innate confidence especially when it comes to her powers of seduction. When she is recruited as a teacher, she makes it widely known that she hates children. Irena has limited Libra characteristics but carries the negative trait of holding onto grudges which appears to be a theme amongst Libras. These traits earn her a spot at the bottom of our list.
9. Ririko Kagome from Rosario to Vampire (Rosario + Vampire)
- Episodes: 13
- Air Date: January 2008 - March 2008
Ririko is strict on her students and can go over-the-top with her passion and craving for knowledge. She appears to be gracious to her students by offering tutoring outside of class, but it ends up just being a selfish ploy to gain more power. Her motivations are purely evil and go against the positive and cooperative nature of the typical Libra and earn her a low spot on our list at number 9.
8. Asuna Yuubi from Sword Art Online
- Episodes: 25
- Air Date: July 2012 - December 2012
Asuna is a very independent individual who does not like to rely on anyone for help. When Kirito tries to recruit Asuna, she is resistant to his presence and requests Once they pair up, she becomes the least cooperative and the most stubborn person for Kirito. With a strength that is unparalleled, Asuna fulfills her wish to become strong as she could not in the other world. Asuna is free-spirited and exciting, while she is an admirable and courageous character she does not fit the traits of a Libra well and earns her a low spot on our list.
7. Umaru Doma from Himouto! Umaru-chan
- Episodes: 12
- Air Date: July 2015 - September 2015
Umaru has conflicting personalities based on who she is around. At home she portrays a childish and spoiled temperament that contrasts with the Libra’s traits. She throws fits and does not participate in helping with any of the household chores. However, outside, Umaru is seemingly perfect. She puts on a façade that she is the perfect person. She has the perfect grades and is popular and social. Her gracious manner is beholden to everyone except her brother. Her traits outside of the house are very much a representation of the Libra, however once we see her inside demeanor, Umaru falls to a lower spot on our list.
6. Ino Yamanaka from Naruto: Shippuuden (Naruto: Shippuden)
- Episodes: 500
- Air Date: February 2007 - March 2017
Ino may not be the most social person around, but she is kind and loyal to those that she is close to. She has a very strong personality which can be intimidating to others but she is fair when it comes to observing a situation and making decisions. She is not afraid of confrontations but will force her problems head on rather than skirt the issue. While Ino is admirable in her own way, she is not the best representation of the typical Libra personality and putting her low on our list.
5. Suzuha Amane from Steins;Gate
- Episodes: 24
- Air Date: April 2011 - September 2011
Upon first glance, Suzuha is a friendly neighborhood girl. She is nice and even-tempered despite her constant teasing with Okabe. However, under the surface, Suzuha carries a dark secret that makes her very hostile towards Kurisu Makise and is very uncharacteristic of a Libra considering their uncanny ability to avoid conflict like the plague. Suzuha is somewhat lazy when it comes to work but is there for Okabe and the others when it is necessary. She seeks to fulfill her own agenda and holds the fate of the world in her own hands. While Suzuha is an excellent representation of the positive traits of a Libra, she carries very few of the negatives.
4. Mina Aino (Sailor Venus) from Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon (Sailor Moon)
- Episodes: 46
- Air Date: March 1992 - February 1993
Good grades and focus on schoolwork are not the name of the game for Mina Aino. With Sailor Venus as her alias, she has more important things to worry about. That being her duty as a Sailor and video games. While her priorities are not exactly straight when it comes to her recreational activities, Mina is reliable when it is necessary. She is diplomatic and fair with the others but has been known to have an attitude. She also has an uncanny ability to carry grudges and act very childish. These traits put her high on our list of Libra females.
3. Honoka Tamarai from ReLIFE
- Episodes: 13
- Air Date: July 2016 - September 2016
As captain of the girls’ volleyball team, Honoka is no stranger to responsibility. Some may see her as being about as deep as a puddle, but this is just because her emotions seem so apparent. She is fair in her decisions but is often regarded as a cry-baby. Honoka has a bad habit of wallowing in self-pity and generally avoids confronting others, even when they have wronged her. She is extremely introverted but an admirable Libra nonetheless. These traits put her near the top of our list.
2. Emilia from Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu (Re:ZERO - Starting Life in Another World)
- Episodes: 25
- Air Date: April 2016 - September 2016
Emilia is like a mother figure to those around her and seeks to take care of them. She is gracious and generous almost to a fault. Emilia carries many burdens that she does not wish to share with others so as not to trouble them. She tends to avoid confrontation whenever possible and carries many of the positive and negative traits of the Libra. Because of this, she earns a spot towards the top of our list.
1. Misaki Ayuzawa from Kaichou wa Maid-sama! (Maid Sama!)
- Episodes: 26
- Air Date: April 2010 - September 2010
Misaki sees herself as fighting for the equality of all the students and pushing the girls to have what they deserve. It is only the stupid and annoying Usui who can make her see the error of the path that she has taken and open her eyes to the true inequality in their school. She seeks to be diplomatic and fair to all that she watches over as her ranking of student council president. This role in school allows her to be in a position with decision making authority. With Usui’s presence in her life, she seeks to be truly more fair to the boys and is an admirable portrayal of a Libra in the end and putting her at the top of our list for displaying both the positive and negative traits of the sign.
Libras are one of the most social zodiac signs. They are popular among others because they enjoy being among the masses and prefer networking. However, they can also be rather introverted which can lead them to try to avoid confrontation whenever possible. They carry grudges and can be indecisive. All Libras must learn how to balance their good and bad traits and use this skill to grow as an individual. All people have the responsibility to better themselves, not only the Libras but all zodiac signs. Weaknesses and strengths are apparent in everyone and the characters we have chosen for this list represent the characters that possess both the strengths and weaknesses of the Libra and balance them accordingly.
