Why Do Anime Characters Have Birthdays?
Anime characters often have official birthdays, which are chosen by the anime’s creator. This can be for a variety of reasons, including giving fans a date to celebrate the character or tying the character’s birthday to a special event in the anime’s story. In some cases, a character’s birthday may be based on historical events or on the birthday of the voice actor who plays the character.
While the exact date of a character’s birth may not be essential to the story, it can help to create a more fully-realized character. It also gives fans a way to celebrate their favorite characters, often by holding special events on their birthday. For example, many anime conventions will hold cosplay contests on the birthday of a particularly popular character. While the reasons for assigning birthdays to anime characters may seem frivolous to some, it is actually part of a long and rich tradition.
Whatever the reason, a character’s birthday can be an important part of their history and identity. For fans, knowing a character’s birthday can help them feel closer to the character and can make them feel like they are part of the anime’s world.
