Blood Types

Blood Types are a very popular way in Japan in finding out someone's personality and character, just like how the Western culture would ask someone about their horoscope sign. Each person with a certain blood type are commonly known to have specific characteristics and traits. Though it's not scientifically proven to be always to be true or accurate (which also pertains to Horoscopes), Japanese people often use blood types as a personality indicator and have a fair belief in these general distinctions. The four most popular blood types are listed below with their general traits and personality. Below that, are various anime, manga and video game characters grouped by their blood type.

Type A: Are usually composed and mild-tempered most of the time and is reliable and trustworthy. They may suppress their own emotions and appear strong, but they also have a fragile and nervous side as well. Because they are constantly trying to make themselves ideally what they think they should be, they are usually hard on others who are not of the same nature. These people tend to be surrounded by people of their same temperament

Type B: Tend to be curious and interested in everything. Because of this, they might move from one thing to another or suddenly drop what they are currently doing. They are known to be full of energy and enthusiasm as well as cheerfulness, but may be somewhat different on the inside. They might sometimes be too involved in their own world and become too carried away that they neglect other things. Even so, they do excel in what they do instead of just average and they do know their true interests and what to really hold on to.

Type O: Tend to be the "mood-maker" of the group and are usually peaceful and carefree. They are also big-hearted and very generous. Generally lovable people, they do have a stubborn and strong-willed side, and tend to have their own secret opinions on things. They are also easily influenced by those around them and are level-headed and trusting most of the time, but can make a couple slip ups from time to time.

Type AB: Are usually cool and controlled and perhaps introverted most of the time. They are considerate of other people's feelings and handle them with care and caution. They can be strict with themselves and those around them as well. Often they become sentimental and tend to think too deeply about things. Even though they may have a lot of friends, they sometimes need time alone to think things through.
