Guess What? My Blood Type is Also B

Inspired by RPGHero's post, I'll make my own short profile of anime-based blood type readings.

So my blood type is B+, like RPGHero. The Japanese believe that people's blood types can determine their general character traits. Read below for the exact descriptions given in his posts for blood type character traits. In Japanese, "blood type" is "ketsuekigata," or "gata" for short. So, I am "B-gata".

Like horoscopes and other supernatural divination, blood type personality traits are purely subjective, and most times used playfully. Famous idols [and as you saw in RPGHero's post, anime characters] are usually weighed next to their blood types. If, say, an AB type super-star were to play off tripping at a famous event smoothly and cool, people would most like comment that it's "just like them to be so well composed, due to his/her blood type."

Wikipedia says that B-gata types are active, passionate, strong, and irresponsible. No wonder this is a pseudoscience, I don't fit in there at all personally. But other's may disagree... the people closest to you are usually your most trusted measuring rod.

Some people take blood types way too seriously though. For example, it's possible to be treated a different way if someone assumes you have a pre-set disposition. Or an overambitious person may only date blood types that appeal to their favorite personalities. But there are many more people who just see it as a fun fact than a dividing factor. Either way, its clear that ketsuekigata are important in Japanese society.

Well, I can play along. Here are a few people from anime that share my blood type:

Utena Tenjou [Revolutionary Girl Utena]

Lacus Clyne [Gundam Seed]

Misao Makimachi [Rurouni Kenshin]

Near [Death Note]

Meilin [Card Captor Sakura]

Ritsuko Akagai [Neo Genesis Evangelion]

Try it out guys, See what anime characters share your blood type!



  1. And you would be Near from Deathnote lol. I haven't got that far but he seems like the most calculating of them all.



Welcome to
The Otaku Reviewers

This blog, "The Otaku Reviewers", was started in February of 2010 on this very same platform, Blogger. At first, it was a venture into the informational and informal world of comics, anime, video games, and Japanese culture. In other words, just a random blog.

Over time, the founder of the blog credited with the pseudonym "RPGhero" was joined by two fellow bloggers and friends with the names "Chansu" and "Deretsun". Together the three bloggers looked up interesting Japanese culture facts, recommended new anime, talked about their own "otaku" interests, and traveled across the United States to various anime conventions.

There have been off periods when the blog ceased production of content and there have been times when there would be dozens of blog posts per week. The schedule varies depending on the lives of the people behind the alias'. However the pattern is that we always get back into the game with even newer information about Japanese culture, anime, video games, and other nerdy hobbies.

The motto of our blog is:
"A cure for your apathy and an inspiration for your dreams. ...Applies to Otaku, anime fans, J-pop junkies, and the like"

The purpose is to blog about cool stuff related solely to anime and otaku stuff. There's no other reason we're doing this.

If you like our blog, please support us in however small a way that you would like. We appreciate our readers!
