Both to me had similar feel when you are reading them, both are really cute. Fruits Basket has: comedy drama romance and shoujo. Koko ni Iru yo! has: romance school school life and shoujo. Both are really good if you like one i think that you will like the other :).

Both manga have a female protagonist surrounded by (mostly) males with an alternate animal form. She is also a central character in resolving their issues.

Really innocent and cute like fruits basket, but also with a deep trauma, just like furuba its a manga for smiles and sad faces

Similar naive and happy-go-lucky heroines that are Goody two shoes and only think in other´s well being. Slice of life moments of the heroines daily lives helping/healing people around them. Drama and Romance involving main characters and supporting characters too. Both also have supernatural elements: cursed people who transform into animals and for a similar reason: one of them (the dog in kobato, the cat in Furuba) angered God and for that all of them were punished.

Both stories are quite similar in their structure. Both are about a teenage girl who moves into a house with 3 boys and they are the only girl. They both have romantic relations with one or more of the boys in the household. Yumemiru Taiyou is more based on romance, but Fruits Basket has a fantasy aspect to it also.

I think both of these girls are main characters who have magical powers. They are both optimistic, have friends, try to make them happy, and are highly curious. They both have hot-headed guys and friendly people. Not to mention, they have some drama, comedy and romance and are very cute manga. 
reportRecommended by Pitrocks14
Both series are mostly-friendship-based reverse harem shoujo series catalyzed by an important and series-enduring secretive element that provides as much drama as humour for the series. As both progress, the potential for drama and tears becomes clearer the more the reader gets to know about the characters' families. Some romance, some cuteness, and it turns out the series may be more similar than they seem at first glance!

The stories have a similar feel to them. Both have a sweet love story and a bit of comedy involved. In both, the girls end up helping/saving/taming the boy.

I was really surprised by the similarities between these two. Both have a family that is shut in, only marries in the family, and has a powerful head. There is the whole supernatural/curse thing going on. Also there is an outsider girl who comes into the family and starts changing things.

Both main-characters are hard-working, naïve, adorable, selfless and clueless characters. Not in an annoying way. Also, both are reverse harem manga with good looking guys falling in love with the main-character (partly unknowing). In spite of the laid-back comedic feeling, all the characters got a dark past. But while Fruits Basket grows darker and more dramatic with love revelations, Shiawase Kissa Sanchoume has yet to reach that state. Both series are very enjoyable for people liking shoujo comedy with a cute plot - without TOO much romance.

Both share the same type of story - a girl being brought in by a group of guys due to family complications - and the life that ensues from that turn of events. In the case of Me & My Brothers, the protagonist is taken in by her step-brothers (that she only knew as a very young toddler) who all have their own quirks, while in Fruits Basket there is a deeper background to the family (and they are unrelated to her) she gets taken in by. Both have the same feel, the main female in both is practically the same person personality wise, and  read more

I always felt the main character (Haine) was like Tohru, optimistic, clumsy, lovable, loyal. She always appeared happy and warm to her friends but she was facing an internal conflict. With her opitimism she cheers the Student Council. She also was an average student, but worked hard at after school jobs, dense. In the story she helps a boy who also faces family problems (no spoilers) and she turned his unhappy, dark ways, and made him see the light and he protected her. In my opinion he wasn't really a part of the family, like Kyo who was not a part of the Soma family  read more

don't know why, but Mekakushi reminds me of Fruits Basket (to a certain extent), perhaps because of the three main characters' personalities are so similar, and both stories have a similar love triangle thing going on, and in both problems with touching people separate the main characters from the rest of their classmates.

Plot is different, sure. But characters are quite similar. Toono = Yuki, Nao = Tohru, Sawamura = Momiji and Shirakawa is like Shigure.

Its similar because 1 girl who moves in with guys and is there maid and as the story unfolds the guy characters become closer and closer to her

Both are romance shoujo and have a similar art style. Tohru and Kiyo have simliar personalities and lifestyles - both are orphans who end up living with men who aren't entirely 'human' - in Bloody Kiss they're vampires, and in Furuba they're cursed. Alsh and Ayame are also distinctly alike. If you're a fan of either, you will definately pick up on, and enjoy, the similarites in the other.

There are a few differences between Fruits Basket and Kare Kano but the overall romance themes are the same. Although Fruits Basket is different with magic and fantasy themes and Kare Kano is modern love, the romance between the two mangas is quite similar. However, the relationships in Fruits Basket take longer to develop then in Kare Kano.

Zodiac P.I. made me think of Fruits Basket a bit in terms of the shared mystical feel. One is about astrological signs and the other Chinese zodiac animal designations... but both have their own lore about how the date and time of your birth can influence your personality. Though Fruits Basket doesn't really have any detective elements, it does have a mystery to it, and they're also both older shoujo series with strong romances.

animal "inner spirits"--in Fruits Basket, it's supernatural and Sex Pistols has a very complicated genetic/evolutionary explanation but there is a similar feel. Also both have many canon couples and a large and strange family. Though, in my opinion Fruits Basket is much much better than Sex Pistols.

The only real similarity is the female leads they both try their hardest no matter what, they are overly optimistic almost to a fault, and they care about the people around them more than themselves.

Similar in the way that the main guy/girl is adored in school (even having his/her own fanclub) and the most plain girl/guy in the school coming in contact with him/her, winning everyones hate.

Fruits Basket and Mahoutsukai no Yome adapts fantasy/supernatural themes as the main female character develops their own role in the world. Both series' main female protagonist were abandoned from the beginning of the story but establishes connections with other characters they meet. Their personality allows them to form friendships easily with others. Both series are also known for magic content that is explored heavily.

Despite their different premise and style, Fruits Basket and Kyoukai no Rinne focuses a lot on relationship building. The main female character forges meaningful relationships with others while discovering their own potentials. Both series also has a decent amount of comedy that also shows the every day life style of the main female leads. There is also the essence of romance present in both series.

Thile the theme is quite different, in both mangas Chinese Zodiac animals play an important role in character's personality. Characters represent some specific zodiac animal (cat, dog, mouse etc).  
reportRecommended by Lylaaz
Mars is like a more mature, darker version of Fruits Basket. The protagonists are older, but I saw many parallels in the way the main character's developed around each other to the characters of Furuba. There's also the themes of family, emotional trauma, protecting the ones you love, and the future.

I found the art in Special A strikingly similar to that of Fruits Basket. I actually checked to see if they were by the same mangaka (they're not :P). Also, Tohru and Hikari share several character traits: they're both kind, sweet, very motivated, and are loved by the people around them. Plus there are a large number of characters in both mangas that eventually form a special kind of relationship with the main characters. Both mangas are recommended!!

Mi-hyung lives with Seh-gyum who has a personality similar to Kyo and there is Seh-hyn who is like Yuki.The atmosphere in Dear Waltz is heavy from the start and Fruit Basket gets darker in the 2nd half.

Kiss de Seiyaku and Fruits Basket are similar in the sense that both deal with the curse and the way characters deal with it. Kiss de Seiyaku is about a girl who can be kissed only with the person she shares the first kiss or she would have to deal with the misfortunes until the end of her life. In Fruits Basket, however, the characters are cursed in a way that they cannot have a physical touch with the opposite gender at all.

Fruits Basket is a shoujo and Negima is a shounen. But they're two of my favorite series from when I was around 10 years old, and have remained some in my favorites throughout my life for, I feel, a similar reason. They're character-based stories. They're loosely based in a school setting. They're fantasy and every character hides some kind of fantasy-related secret. They're comedies with light sexual innuendos, but clueless protagonists. The protagonists are liked, by the other characters, for their cluelessness and pure heart. The story sometimes get very emotional, very dark Yet you could say that the vast majority of their cast, while having flaws Is made of good people.  read more

Sweet, pure love stories. Both girls must leave home for some reason and end up living with a "prince-type" character (sorta..they have their quirks). Both have fighting, but is not action-packed. For both girls, their parents are out of the picture. Both stories have great, almost enchanting art styles.

Both Fruits Baskets and Swap Swap are lighthearted, supernatural comedy mangas with slice of life atmospheres that revolve around a high school setting. Other than their supernatural element, which the main characters try to keep a secret, both are set in normal, everyday Japan. A large-ish group of characters are involved, but only a few actually matter to the plot.

Fruits Basket and Twin Spica are two manga series about an innocent, brown-haired girl who has also lost her mother due to an accident. Despite that, she manages to keep some hope with some ambitions in mind. The story follows her daily life with the people she meets, but there are also some supernatural elements (there's a curse that FuruBa's protagonist has to hide, while Twin Spica's protagonist is the only one who can see a ghost that follows her) within a fairly tragic story.

Horimiya, focusing more on its romance and comedy, all the while developing its characters, is very similar to my favorite manga of all time, Fruits Basket. Now I'm sure there are much better manga than this one, but it was a series that came to me during hard times. In fact, I had never felt lonelier in my life, but Fruits Basket cured me of depression with its relatable characters and fantastic development. It felt good being able to see myself in them, and Horimiya, though in a more light-hearted way, does the same thing. Both are really great stories, that you should definitely give  read more

Fruits Basket está na lista dos meu super favoritos! Ele sempre me emociona, e eu aprendo muitas coisas boas com ele. Os personagens são ótimos, e já está sendo licenciado no Brasil. Entretanto, particularmente não gostei muito do anime, porque o mangá é 1000 vezes melhor e o final do anime (que não conclui a história) é decepcionante. "For the Sake of Sita" é um mangá coreano, mas que conta uma história que se passa na Índia. Baseado em fatos reais, é um manwha muito lindo, empolgante e diferente!

I found the female protagonist similar to one another in both the manga's wherein they are in the center of the plot being a human dealing with issues in beasts and in this case devils world. Even though Female leads are optimistic, simple, and delicate - they are able to help and associate with the other world. Additionally they fall in love with the other species and are determined to stay together forever.

The story itself isn't similar at all. Although both are shoujo mangas, and deal with some character hiding a dark secret (Emma-sama and the whole Souma Family), the backstory of Kyou and Aruma is really alike. Both were excluded from the family due to a power, or true form, and both have to keep it under control using some kind of supresor (a bracelet or a necklace). Even though Fruits Basket is much better and longer, if you liked Kyou's character you may find a similar feel towards Aruma, and viceversa.

The heroines are quite similar. Both are rendered homeless due to an unfortunate event and subsequently end up working as a live-in maid at the hero's house. They're independent and strive to not be a burden to others, even if they desperately need help. The heroine feels lonely without a family and the hero recognizes that loneliness and, despite initially being a cold person, yearns to fill her loneliness just as she warms his heart. Both stories are about how the MCs gradually become a family, change each other's lives, and fall in love with each other while living together.

Both are shoujo~school. Main girls are very cute and honest. MC-Thinking about the boy they met when they were little and finding them again when they are older. Love triangle, where the guys don't like each other, but our girl appreciates both of them. Sekirara ni kiss is more of a typical shoujo and the story progresses a little bit faster, while Fruits Basket is just great and original and not so focused on relationships, but i liked both of them and i really recommend them.

In both manga, the girls friends think that she is normal, but in reality, they are always working at home, where they're parents are not there (in Fruits basket, Tooru is an orphan living alone, and in Hori-San Hori is also living alone, but she has parents). Both are good shoujos. I think fruits basket is longer. Both of the girls are hardworking and kind, but the guys are a little different. Plus, there's a little bit of triangle love (2 guys like one girl) going on in both manga.

The people are animals who in some way end up naked at the end of the day, they seemly are in a concentrated area and go to school. The main girl is an orphan who being abandoned by the rest of the world is taken in by animals. She falls for a Tundere cat who doesn't show affection very well and the other guy who likes her is more mild mannered. Problematic family members arise and try to get in the way of a budding friendship turning relationship.

These mangas remind me so much of one another. They both have the same kind of poetic rhythm and deal with the themes of loss of innocence and acceptance. The character's emotions cause our emotions to trigger and hope for the best of them.

The most evident similarity between both stories is a love triangle between the main character, a girl: Tohru (Furuba) / Hikaru (Moe Kare) and two blood-related bishounen; one of them, a perfect gentleman: Yuki (FB) / Takara (MK) and the other, a misunderstood 'bad boy': Kyo (FB) / Arata (MK). In Furuba, Kyo and Yuki are cousins and in Moe Kare, Arata and Takara are half-brothers, but they all hate eachother because of family issues, and of course, they fight for the same girl. As the story progresses, Kyo and Arata, that everyone thought to be 'bad boys', start to show their true nature: they  read more

Both series have a clan that can transform into animals and have different kind of problems within the clan. A girl suddely gets involved with them and brings joy. Great art and a nice plot in both series.

Despite the fact that Past Day Present is a one-shot and Fruits Basket is a long series, the characters in both titles are really similar! Kotoko and Tohru are nice, caring, a litte dense and alone because of their parents death. Shin is like Kyo - wants to distance himself from others and think that he shouldn't have been born. If you liked Furuba, then you definitely should read this one-shot and if you liked Past Day Present, you should take a look at longer, but kept in the similar manner, FB :)

Both revolves around a curse on a family and a girl working on finding a way to break the curse.

Sailor Fuku ni Onegai is a great read for those that loved the relationship between Kyo/Tohru. Though Hinagiku has more spunk than Tohru does.

Both girls are kind at heart. Both boys are rough around the edges. Fruits basket is about a family curse and not so much about competitions or making others pretty. Their storylines are different, but still they will remind you of each other.

Ze is a yaoi version of Fruits Basket in my opinion. Outsider thrown into supernatural household. Very good read for yaoi fans.

You have to read both of these stories! The plots are very well made and it's funny in an adorable way. Ojousama wa Oyomesama has more romance in it while Fruits Basket has a mystery to it! Both a wonderful read!

Both are cute tales about teenage girls and magical animals.

Same mangaka and the main characters are very similar. If you liked one, you'd like the other!

This is a more age friendly manga, but it definitely has some similar themes! The main character is a selfless kind girl who isn't afraid to work. And she lives in a house with "siblings" just like Yuri! There are many different personalities. Also a conflict of love! It has a similar feel with the mix between comedy and drama. They are both cute stories!

FB has the same kind of boy (agressive) and girl (naive and innocent) couple as Beaty!!
