Fruits Basket, Ranma ½ Recommendations
Both animes have people in who are "cursed" into changing into other things (such as animals)... in Ranma 1/2 the cause is cold water in Fruits Basket the cause is being hugged by the opposite sex.
In both shows the main characters transform for different reasons. Fruits Basket is when they are hugged by someone of the opposite gender and Ranma is when they get splashed with water
In the shows both contain main characters that are cursed and turn into animals and/or the opposite gender under certain circumstances. They are also both filled with comedy, although Fruits Basket adds a bit of drama, whereas Ranma is simply all out silly. Ranma 1/2 is more episodic and Fruits Basket has a more continuous story development. All in all, the premise of both are quite similar, and are worth a viewing.
Basically the same taste and the same layout: people changing to animals due to a curse, a lost boy, etc...
Both the anime have curses in which the characters chage into other forms. In Ranma 1/2 ,Ranma turns into a girl when doused by cold water and the other characters turn into different animals like a pig, a panda, a cat, a duck etc. In Fruits Basket different characters of the Shoma family turn into different animals of the Zodiac when hugged by a member of the opposite sex. Both series have comedy.
