Astrology can tell people what their personality is like, their prospects for school and work, and even if their relationship will be successful. Some astrology pairings like those who share elements—Aquarius and Libra for example—are predicted to be soulmates. Other sign pairings such as Aries and Cancers are deemed too different to make the relationship work.
When it comes to our favorite anime couples, the same rules can apply. Some manga and anime creators pay attention to the astrology signs of their characters in order to ensure the relationships they create will make sense to viewers. While not all of the top anime couples are deemed compatible, it’s a lot of fun to see which ones are and if it makes sense. Using a horoscope love calculator, we determined the 10 most compatible anime couples.
10 Kaguya Shinomiya & Miyuki Shirogane: 80% Compatability
In Kaguya-Sama: Love is War, Kaguya is a Capricorn who thrives on trying to remain in control. Like other Capricorns, Kaguya is a rule follower. Miyuki, on the other hand, is a Virgo. Virgos can be perfectionists, which explains why Miyuki works so hard to maintain his grades and image.
Virgos and Capricorns are both Earth signs, so they value hard work and their social standing. It makes sense why Kaguya and Miyuki feel the need to make the other confess their love first, as neither wants to look uncool by confessing. Virgos can inspire the Capricorn to let loose and together, they can accomplish any big goals.
9 Usagi Tsukino & Mamoru Chiba: 81% Compatibility
Usagi and Mamoru of Sailor Moon are perhaps the most famous anime couple of all time. Usagi or Sailor Moon is known for her crybaby attitude. Being a Cancer, she is emotional, caring deeply about her loved ones. When it comes to Mamoru, there is nothing she wouldn’t do for him. Mamoru, who is a Leo, initially comes off as arrogant. However, he is passionate and a great partner to Usagi.
Leos and Cancers seem different, but those differences complement each other. Cancers want to be loved, and Leos are ready to give love. As Usagi and Mamoru prove, Cancers and Leos still need to put in work to make the relationship successful.
8 Asuna & Kirito: 82% Compatibility
While most couples would say meeting in a digital video game world is not ideal, Kirito and Asuna of Sword Art Online seem to make it work, and for good reason. Both Kirito and Asana are Libras, which means they both are Air Signs who value peace and harmony. They also have strong minds and a knack for challenges, so its a no brainer how Kirito and Asana both ended up in the game.
Double sign pairings are usually not successful, but, for Asuna and Kirito, it works. They both are passionate partners and big on communication. In the Sword Art Online game, Kirito and Asuna grow close due to their willingness to be open with each other.
