Darling in the Franxx was one of the most controversial science fiction romance anime during the time of its release, but that does not mean it did not have an abundance of interesting characters throughout its 24-episode run. Although they all were not utilized to the best of the anime’s ability, the glimpses of personality fans received of the group of characters called “Parasites” were a delight to watch.
From the most popular female character in the series Zero Two to one of the most hated anime characters in history Ichigo, here are what zodiac signs they match up with the best.
12. Aries: Zorome
Zorome is perhaps the most energetic person in the group of Parasites and is often cheeky. He also frequently fights with Miku, his partner, which makes them the two who fight the most about pointless things.
Zorome loves to be the center of attention and does not think things through entirely before he does something, which makes him the perfect example of an Aries. As the Aries zodiac animal is a ram and he loves to butt-in headfirst to challenges, this ties-in exceptionally as well.
11. Taurus: Ichigo
Ichigo is the archetype of a childhood friend who holds an unrequited love for the protagonist, who also happened to garner hate across the anime community as well as in real-life, as the voice actor suffered for it unfairly.
Taureans are known for being loyal and having unwavering devotion, which is what Ichigo shows to Hiro. This also backfires, as the longer she is in love with him, the unhealthier her mental state becomes, which is also alike to a Taurus.
10. Gemini: Nana
Nana oversees the Parasites and gives them commands as one of the only adults that surround the children. Although she rarely shows her emotions while on the job, Nana works seriously in devotion of Papa, although in the past it was shown she was different from how she is now.
With all of the responsibilities Nana holds, this ties in to how busy Geminis are as they buzz through their personal life and work life. Nana can also show a quick-wit at times.
9. Cancer: Kokoro
Kokoro, along with Ichigo, was one of the most controversial female characters in Darling in the Franxx during the second half of the series, as she swapped partners from Futoshi to Mitsuru. While on the surface Kokoro shows a motherly approach to the other Parasites, her personality is more complicated.
In truth, Kokoro hides her emotions, such as how she truly desired to be a mother and know what true love was, which she revealed to Mitsuru. However, Cancers also care deeply about their family and friends, which does hold true.
8. Leo: Mitsuru
Mitsuru was at first the arrogant partner of Ikuno and could barely pilot a Franxx without getting tired out. However, he would try to show off multiple times and prove himself to Hiro.
Mitsuru’s ego, pride, and jealousy are the dangerous aspects he gains from the Leo zodiac sign. However, when he becomes romantically involved with Kokoro, his unwavering loyalty comes into play.
7. Virgo: Goro
Goro acts as Hiro’s best friend who is in love with Ichigo, his partner, and who always tries to see the bright side of things. As a Virgo, Goro takes notice of things that may not seem that important and is great at communicating.
Goro also puts his all into whatever he is doing and always wishes the best for his friends.
6. Libra: 9’Α
9’α first appeared in Darling in the Franxx as an antagonist along with the other gaggle of children that barely had any screen time. From his first appearance, his arrogance was delivered perfectly.
9’α has shown a fixation on being better than Zero Two, as he is a copy made from her unique blood. Always one to make a snub at the other Parasites, he also thinks they are not necessary.
5. Scorpio: Zero Two
Zero Two is the main heroine of Darling in the Franxx who calls Hiro the anime-famous term “Darling” when she becomes his partner. Passionate and rebellious, Zero Two is a refreshing character who also has bounds of problems.
As a Scorpio, Zero Two knows what she wants and does not let anything get in her way, no matter if it is the other Parasites or Hiro himself. She can also be dangerous, as the zodiac animal.
4. Sagittarius: Ikuno
Ikuno was the partner of Mitsuru and barely spoke, but her feelings for Ichigo were a well-known topic the anime sidestepped. She was shown to be intelligent and not one to enjoy hanging out with others, akin to Mitsuru.
She bottled up her emotions, but she sometimes was shown to have a sharp tongue like a Sagittarius. Ikuno is also shown to be more knowledgable than the other Parasites about certain topics.
3. Capricorn: Miku
Miku is Zorome’s partner who frequently fights with him. However, Miku also gets along well with the other Parasites and acts as the little sister role.
Miku also loves to be playful and party when it’s time for a break, but she also has gone through tough lessons as a Capricorn.
2. Aquarius: Hiro
Hiro is the protagonist of Darling in the Franxx and the titular Darling in the title, as per Zero Two. When Hiro was younger, he used to act as the leader of the group of Parasites, even going as far as giving everyone a name according to their numbers.
This revolutionary thought is very Aquarius-like as well as his rebellious attitude the more he gets involved with Zero Two.
1. Pisces: Futoshi
Futoshi was the partner of Kokoro until the partner swap with Futoshi and was very devoted to her throughout Darling in the Franxx. Futoshi is easily emotional when it comes to Kokoro and his friends, which is Pisces-like.
He has also been beaten down a lot for his weight, but still remains to be lovable and energetic. His ability to still be stable throughout all the tough lessons is another sign of a Pisces.
