After her mother's death, Tohru Honda finds herself living with the Sohma family consisting of three cousins: Yuki, the 'prince charming' of their high school, Kyo the hot headed, short tempered outcast, and Shigure the mischievous novelist, with some mild perverted moments.

Tohru finds out the Sohma family secret that when a member is hugged by the opposite gender or they are tired out, they turn into the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac. Although the Sohmas' curse is deeper and darker than Tohru realized, her presence and her acceptance of them soon becomes a large, positive influence on those possessed by the zodiac.

Filled with many lovable character and many plot twists along the way, life at the Sohma house will never be the same again.

My Thoughts:

This anime is very heart-warming, filled with emotion and teenage angst and problems. Tohru is a breath of fresh air to everyone. She has a way of saying things that makes those around her feel better. She always shows kindness and tries to defuse tense situations. It's a very well dubbed anime with beautiful graphics, great characters that have their own little story surrounding their Zodiac and the storyline fills all the slots; love, humor, sadness, jealousy...I loved watching Fruits Basket and would recommend it for all ages.
