Gaijin and I are coming to the end of this series and our penultimate post features that feisty wildcat Kyo. This post was particularly challenging for me and I hope I don’t disappoint too much!
Oh Kyo, a close second favorite of mine… if not running neck and neck with Haru. Our spicy and determined cat is, not surprisingly, a serious and hard working Capricorn. Capricorn is a very serious sign. Their ruling planet is Saturn which is the planet that represents obstacles, hard work, discipline, and ambition. Capricorns often come off as sharp-tongued, cold, austere, kind of awkward, and can be very critical…that sounds like Kyo. They are very competitive in certain aspects of life, such as work and career. Much like a Capricorn, he is very protective of those he cares about and will not back down so easily.
He is a very hard worker! I mean for Buddha’s sake, the boy went to live in the mountains by himself for months to train so he can eventually beat Yuki in a duel. That takes determination only a Capricorn would have. Capricorns are, much like every Earth sign, very particular…but about weird things. Kyo here, hates green onions and miso, unless it’s in a soup form, hates dish liver and chives unless cooked properly, and there’s a whole list but you’ll be reading that until the next Sozin’s Comet.
IRINA: Well this one isn’t really fair. Kyo is a cat and as we all know the cat is NOT part of the Chinese Zodiac! It is however part of the Vietnamese zodiac and Gurung zodiac and in fact it takes the place of the Rabbit.
Yup, you heard that right, as far as zodiacs are concerned, Kyo and Momiji are suppose to be very similar indeed. The only marked difference is that Cats are in conflict with Rats. I think that’s shown pretty well in the series!
So technically, Kyo’s suppose to be a gentle, sensitive, compassionate, amiable, modest, and merciful young man who may also be a little amorous, hesitant, stubborn, timid and conservative….
Yeah, Western Zodiac may have won out on this one. OR Kyo is a Chinese Cat and they are just very different. Let’s see, is tsundere a strength or a weakness?
How did I do? There’s one more Zodiac analysis left. Make sure you keep an eye on Gaijin’s blog for the final entry in this post series as we take a look at our plucky main character Tohru!
