Geminis, born between 21 May to 20 June, are the twins of the Zodiac. Youthful, excitable, and curious, Geminis are fun to be around. Sometimes they end up on the dark side, due to their endless curiosity, indecisiveness, and chaotic neutral alignment. Not to fret though; Geminis are highly adaptable and can bounce back and forth between perspectives easily.
We updated our Top Male Gemini Anime Characters list with five more of our favorite characters who are canonically born under the sign of Gemini. Let’s take a look!
5. Matsuno Osomatsu and His Brothers from Osomatsu-san (Mr. Osomatsu)
It’s not easy to describe the countless shenanigans of the Osomatsu brothers, always up for fun, laughs, taking the short way to everything, and living a NEET lifestyle without a hint of remorse. Matsuno, the eldest of the Osomatsu sextuplets, is a master of tricks and is carried away by whatever catches his interest. His enthusiasm is infectious and manipulates his brothers to take part in his schemes. We would hit a party with the brothers at any moment, although that would probably be a LAN party.
4. Kazuya Kinoshita from Kanojo, Okarishimasu (Rent-a-Girlfriend)
In the first few seconds of Rent-a-Girlfriend, Kazuya gets dumped by his girlfriend for another guy. Unable to deal with the rejection, he downloads the Rental Girlfriend app and hires Chizuru to pretend she is his girlfriend. We see him spurting lie after lie to his grandmother and parents, finding a quick excuse when both he and Chizuru appear at the hospital. His lying gets him into trouble, as expected, but he’s not a bad guy though - he just has a quick tongue and desperately wants to avoid his problems. Smart but really indecisive, for the majority of the series, Kazuya can’t make up his mind about the girl he is really in love with. The woes of a Gemini in love...
3. Nobimaru from Kemono Jihen
A kitsune boy, Nobimaru serves Inari-sama, another kitsune who pulls the strings behind the Police. Nobimaru disguises himself as younger than his age, using his cute looks to his advantage so that his opponents underestimate him. Aloof, fun, and quick-witted, he knows everything about other people’s drama but chooses not to get involved, unless it’s to his benefit. Funny, and super strong, he doesn’t even like his Mistress, Inari, but aligns his secret goals with her. We see Nobimaru coming and going to Kabane’s or Inari’s side as he pleases, balancing out opposing views and changing his mind easily.
2. Itachi Uchiha from Naruto
Everyone knows the promising genius of the Uchiha Clan who turned to the dark side. Itachi doesn’t display the usual playfulness of Geminis, but he keeps his motives to his chest and can change perspectives quickly. Following the two-sided Gemini stereotype, Itachi’s motivations are unknown for the majority of the series, we know of him as a villain through and through, responsible for murdering the Uchiha Clan except for his brother, Sasuke. Itachi collects information, learns, and understands with characteristic air sign detachment. Itachi is the favorite character of many Naruto fans despite his controversial backstory, and one of our favorite Geminis.
1. Ash Ketchum from Pokemon (Pokémon)
Ash, or originally Satoshi in the Japanese version, needs no introduction to old and new anime fans. Cheerful, adventurous, determined, idealistic, endlessly curious, Ash vows to become the very best Pokémon trainer. Eternally 10 years old, he sets out to travel around the world, catch Pokémon, compete with other trainers, and win tournaments. Along the way, he meets several people, makes friends, and completes the information on his Pokédex.
Ash cares a lot about his Pokémon, treats them as friends, and goes along with the whims of his unconventional companion, Pikachu, who never enters a Poké Ball. He is often seen playing with his Pokemon companions, teasing Misty, and finding ways to outsmart Team Rocket. Ash is the favorite Gemini guy of our childhood anime series.
And there you have it, the Top 5 Male Gemini Anime Characters updated list! Witty, intelligent, fun, but also easily bored, morally grey, and indecisive, these male characters were born under the sign of Gemini and are good representatives of these traits. Did you know that Itachi or Ash are Geminis? Are you surprised to see any of these characters on this list? Let us know in the comments below and thanks for reading.

Hisoka Morow is one of the beloved antiheroes in all of anime. He is notorious for his love of killing and takes pride in his methods of torture. He is extremely strong but mercifully allows those to live who he sees potential in. However, this is explained by him taking greater pleasure in killing them later. While Hisoka seems like a murderous bastard, he does display some hint of humanity occasionally as evidenced by his sparing of Machi.

9. Shokugeki no Souma (Food Wars!)
- Episodes: 24
- Air Date: April 2015- September 2015
Terunori Kuga is hot-headed, but his talent for cooking attracts many people. This allows him to be the center of attention and earns him a seat on the Council of Ten. His skill in creating spicy foods is second to none and he knows it. While he puts his passion behind his food, he is extremely egoistic and this makes him oblivious to the skills of others. This is not a typical trait of Gemini and therefore does not earn him a spot at the top of our list. However, due to his excitement at being challenged and avoiding routine, he makes up for his ruthless traits and enters towards the bottom of our list.
8. Shinjirou Kurama from Kamisama Hajimemashita (Kamisama Kiss)
- Episodes: 13
- Air Date: October 2012 - December 2012
Shinjirou Kurama is an extremely selfish tengu yokai who poses as a fallen angel through his rock star persona. He cannot believe that Nanami has no interest in him because of his popularity with others. While he can be conceited, he grows to have a close friendship with Nanami and is reliable when it is needed. While he is not as nice and affectionate towards others as is characteristic of Gemini, his rock star status makes him extremely popular and the center of attention pretty much wherever he goes. These traits earn Kurama a place on our list of top Gemini.

He has a love of all things romantic such as Valentine’s Day and shows great affection towards his characters. While Nozaki does not have any first-hand experience in love, he enjoys creating outlandish stories under his pen name. While he may handle romantic relationships with skill when on paper, he is oblivious when it comes to dealing with real-life relationships. He is shown as a valuable friend and is able to come through when necessary. These traits allow him a place on our list of top Gemini.

Renshou Sorinozuka is a lazy individual who cares deeply about his friends. While he may seem like an unreliable individual at first, he truly comes through for everyone when it matters.

He is affectionate and curious when around his friends putting him on our list of top Gemini. While he may not be the center of attention every time, his relaxing and pleasant demeanor put the entire hotel at ease.
5. Kaname from Brothers Conflict
- Episodes: 12
- Air Date: July 2013 - September 2013
Kaname is probably the most sexually forward of the brothers in Brothers Conflict which can often put Ema on edge. However, he is also one of the most mature in the house as shown through his work at the temple. He can be indecisive at times and can always be seen surrounded by either his brothers or others who work at the temple.

Though he generally despises social interaction, he puts on a comfortable and pleasant exterior making him a more complex character. As Karneval continues, he is revealed to show more emotions through his relationships with others. The character development throughout the anime shows significant change in his demeanor. He changes from one who closes off his emotions to an individual who has blossomed into an admirable Gemini.

He is easy to get along with and even-tempered making him an excellent Gemini and putting him at the top of our list.
Gemini are a well-respected sign. They are gentle and affectionate when they are with their friends and will stand up for them when it matters. However, due to their nervousness, they are not the most outgoing of people. Their talent for music and literature is outdone by none and this often leads them to being book smart, even if they are not the most sociable of individuals. Their personality shines through and makes others want to be around them. These are truly individuals to be admired as they display a variety of positive traits. Gemini can be serious and stoic or fun and jovial, the twins are the perfect sign for these individuals with so many exhibited traits.
