It’s 2023, and if you’re a fan of the Chinese zodiac, you should know that this year has officially been declared the “Year of the Rabbit”, an animal that has become a very common mention among anime characters and series due to its characteristics.
Some TV shows have even challenged themselves to make illustrations and fanart of their characters based on this zodiac sign, so now we’re going to challenge ourselves to pick five characters that are closely related to rabbits.
Don’t be fooled by the cuteness of the outfit and her ears, as this waifu took on the personality of a bunny girl under rather grim circumstances. At first, Mai Sakurajima is an actress/model who wants to stop being recognized by the world, and while that wish is granted at first, that wish ends up making her “literally invisible” to society. Trying to get noticed again, Mai first appears in this bunny costume in the school library.
The strongest woman in the shinobi world and creator of the ninshu is also known as the “Goddess of the Moon” for references to the legend of the rabbit that lives on the moon. An unstable version of the 10-tail jinchūriki revealed that Kaguya’s bestial form is that of a giant rabbit composed of Chakra.
This cute bunny caused quite a stir when she was first introduced in both the Beastars manga and anime. A very complex anthropomorphic character who in the middle of the “animal kingdom” uses sexual intercourse to stop being perceived as small and weak.
