Manga Blood Types

Postby Kuraara » Sat 11.11.2006 7:47 pm

Why do manga authors give blood types? To me it seems like a minor characteristic that can go without saying. I don't even know my blood type. I'm just a bit confused as to why they add them.

Its not just Manga. The Japaese have the saying that this and this Blood type goes well with the other and that you can tell the Personality by the Blood type. Some people just want partners with such and such Blood type

maybe you want to read > this <

I think i read somewhere that the japanese think that blood type determines what kind of person someone is. Like, the blood type O , for example, would be the blood type of a warrior, and the blood type AB considered infereior. I could be wrong...

Well, it is because the Japanese believe that your personality could eb determined because of your blood types. Although that belief is dying out, mangakas still tend to associate the personality with the blood type... here is an article about it

It's pretty much predicts personalities. Manga authors use them to show what the person is like.

So that's what its all about...
It really bothered me for a while, since in almost every anime the girls would ask the new student "What blood type are you?"
Now it all makes sense...
