Anime is a hugely popular form of entertainment, with characters that can be as iconic as any in cinema or television.
Happy birthday to all you anime characters out there! Did you know that many of your favorite characters have birthdays? Here’s a list of some of the most popular ones and when they were born.
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.

Monkey D. Luffy is one of the most popular anime characters ever. He has starred in a long-running manga and anime series, as well as movies and video games.
After eating a devil fruit known as Gomu-Gomu no Mi (Hito Hito no Mi) which made him a rubber man he gained incredible stretching powers from it allowing him to create long arms or legs out of himself for various uses such as attacking enemies or protecting people.
Luffy was born with one ambition: to become Pirate King! In order to do this, he must find all six legendary treasure chests that were scattered across the world by Gold Roger before anyone else does. Luffy’s personality is carefree and full of energy. He is always seen smiling even when facing the most difficult challenges.
His cheerful nature endears him to others and motivates his crewmates to fight on even when the odds are against them. However, he is also quite naïve and this often gets him into trouble. Nevertheless, he is an excellent leader and always puts the safety of his crew above everything else. Luffy is also very determined and never gives up on his dreams no matter how impossible they may seem. This determined spirit is what makes him a truly great pirate captain.
Naruto Uzumaki – October 10
Naruto Uzumaki is the eponymous protagonist of Naruto. He was the jinchūriki of the Nine-Tails until Kurama was extracted from him by Madara Uchiha during the Fourth Shinobi World War, which resulted in Naruto’s death. Despite this, he was revived by the Eight-Tails shortly afterward.
Naruto grew up without knowing his parents or his place in the world, feeling strong hatred from many of his Hidden Leaf village peers and villagers due to the Nine-Tails’ power sealed within him. Following Jiraiya’s death, Naruto decides to look for Tsunade to become Hokage so he could gain everyone’s respect and have them acknowledge him as someone worth protecting.
After managing to convince her, Naruto returns to Konoha and defeats Pain, learning more about pain and suffering and how bonds spur him on from it instead of allowing it to break him as it did before. By the end of Part II, Naruto is married to Hinata Hyuga with whom he has a daughter named Boruto Uzumaki and a son named Himawari Uzumaki. In Boruto: Naruto the Movie, Naruto has fulfilled his dream as Seventh Hokage.
