Gentle and talented, Pisces are among one of the most soft-hearted zodiac signs. They are often very spiritual and prefer to see the world for its more artistic side. This water sign is not easily fooled, their intuition is on point and while they tend to want to see the world in its most ideal form, they are not foolish enough to believe that it is completely without cruelty. This is a sign that seeks change for the better. In their most ideal form, they are loving, compassionate and forgiving individuals. This sign would make for the most understanding partner and most optimistic world leader.
Anime characters born under this sign represent these traits. They are idealistic and often the ones that are more quiet. By analyzing the characters born between the dates of February 19th and March 20th, we are able to accurately gauge the most archetypical Pisces in anime. There are many positive traits that form a Pisces, but we also must focus on the negative ones as well. When put in a less than ideal situation, Pisces can be fearful, sad and become forcefully ignorant of the world as it is. Pisces seek an idyllic life but cannot always have it, making it difficult for some of them to live in the real world. These traits, both positive and negative, combine to make a realistic and complex character.
10. Light Yagami from Death Note
- Episodes: 37
- Air Date: October 2006 - June 2007
This may seem irrational to have a person as dark and twisted as Light Yamagi to have on a list of top Pisces, but hear us out. He honestly seeks to make the world a better and safer place through eliminating the criminals. In Light’s eyes, he is only doing what is best for the world. He is wise when it comes to using his Death Note and having it not track back to him. By rationalizing that he would become God, he is securing a safer world where people do not have to live in fear. By doing it all in secret, Light is not only securing his safety but maintaining a veil that may hint at a more quiet and sensitive side. While Light may not be at the top of our list, these qualities earn him a spot towards the bottom of our list.
9. Yuusuke Tanimura from Kuroko no Basket (Kuroko’s Basketball)
- Episodes: 25
- Air Date: April 2012 - September 2012
Tanimura is not one to back away from a challenge. He is confident in his skills and as captain of Shinkyo Academy’s basketball team he is not ready to lose. He despises people who feel like they’re the best and wants to show them up. He also sees Seirin’s win as an affront to his team. Yuusuke is not as soft as others on this list but displays the exact dislikes of a true Pisces.
8. Koro-sensei from Ansatsu Kyoushitsu (Assassination Classroom)
- Episodes: 22
- Air Date: January 2015 - June 2015
While Koro-sensei seeks the destruction of Earth, he also wants to realize his dream of teaching and helping others before he destroys the planet. He truly enjoys his class and wants them to have the best education possible. He provides them with the best education that he is able and is gentle with them throughout his instruction. This man/alien is the perfect type to encapsulate the vision of a Pisces teacher.
7. Kasuka Heiwajima from Durarara!!
- Episodes: 24
- Air Date: January 2010 - June 2010
This quiet actor is phenomenal when it comes to his craft but extremely reserved in regular social situations. He does not wish to display emotion because of his upbringing and it leads him to be very different than his on-screen counterpart. He lives for acting and despite an unfortunate turn of events in his career he still seeks to bring that artistic flare to everything that he does, even off screen in a more low-key style. This more reserved but artistic individual is an excellent example of the Pisces personality.
6. Yuri Plisetsky from Yuri!!! on ICE
- Episodes: 12
- Air Date: October 2016 - December 2016
While Yuri has more of a hard exterior than others on this list, he is passionate about skating as an art and a lifestyle. He is competitive but seeks the deep emotion that only ice skating can provide him. He is fearful of being seen by others as a wimp and puts up a solid wall that is slowly broken down throughout the anime. As viewers, we are able to see the transition that he endures that makes him a more likable character and a true Pisces.
5. Takeru Totsuka from Kamigami no Asobi
- Episodes: 12
- Air Date: April 2014 - June 2014
Takeru is another character that displays a hard exterior. However, despite his appearances, he likes to be alone and finds comfort in animals. He is easily angered but is very loyal to his friends. While he may be temperamental, he is desperate to escape his situation and seeks to only be with those he cares about and escape the monotony of his existence. This God is the underlying example of the Pisces personality.
4. Italy Veneziano from Hetalia Axis Powers
- Episodes: 52
- Air Date: January 2009 - March 2010
An artistic and hungry individual at heart, Italy’s pastimes include music, painting and eating. Above all else he is a space cadet. While he seeks to be friends with the others, he often is spacing out even when others are speaking to him. The other countries see him as weak and timid but he has his own interests that put him far above the others artistically. While he may not be the strongest, he is comfortable in his own skin and very practical about what his skills are and how to use them to the best of his ability.
3. Louis from Brothers Conflict
- Episodes: 12
- Air Date: July 2013 - September 2013
As an artist for a living, it is not hard to see why Louis makes our list. He is constantly trying to improve on others to make them more beautiful through their hair. He is also very sensitive to animals as portrayed through his understanding of Ema’s pet, Juli. He is one of the most comforting brothers in the house and is one of the few that is not constantly trying to seduce Ema. She sees him less as a potential partner and more as a lifelong friend. His soft and mellow demeanor make him an ideal example of the Pisces.
2. Hiroto Kanazawa from Kiniro no Corda: Primo Passo (La Corda d’Oro: Primo Passo)
- Episodes: 25
- Air Date: October 2006 - March 2007
Once a grand opera singer, this teacher has turned to despair. After an unfortunate incident with his lover, he has vowed to never sing again because he has lost the passion for it. His passion for music has not escaped him however and he has turned to teaching other gifted musicians. By surrounding himself with music, he is able to see the world through the artistic light that he has lived for. He is fearful of realizing his potential and self-sabotages but is soothed by the very thing he is running from. This professor is another example of the ideal Pisces and represents both the negative and positive traits and put him toward the top of our list.
1. Mitsukuni Haninozuka from Ouran Koukou Host Club (Ouran High School Host Club)
- Episodes: 26
- Air Date: April 2006 - September 2006
Honey is probably the strongest character on this list. He is highly skilled in martial arts and respected throughout Japan. However, you would never have guessed based on his sensitive and gentle demeanor. He craves cute things and wants to see the world through rose-colored glasses. Although he is able to use force to end conflict, he prefers to end it in a cutesy way. He is observant despite his childish appearance. He is often overly trusting as well and expects more out of others that they can give. These traits put Honey at the top of our list for being the most archetypical Pisces.
Pisces are known for being warm and artistic individuals. However, this does not mean that they are weak by any means. They seek to encourage passion in others but also like their own space in which they can express themselves creatively. While many are empathetic they can also use this trait to twist others emotions against them. Many Pisces are kind-hearted but development as a character and their situation can turn them into something dark and ominous as with any sign. Strength and weakness can almost be blurred because the development of a character is more complex than just black and white. This is why we chose to include characters that are objectively both good and bad rather than focusing on the typical compassionate nature of the Pisces.
