Fruits Basket (also known as Furuba) is a shojo
(girls) manga about a 16 year old girl named Tohru Honda who recently loses her mother and winds up living with the Sohma family. She soons finds out that the Sohma family is cursed with the vengeful spirits of the Chinease Zodiac and turn into animals when weak or hugged by the opposite sex. The story and characters are very original, which makes Fruits Basket a very popular manga.
I love Momijii from Fruits Basket!
Fruits Basket is about a Girl named Tohru.
She goes to live with Sohma Family and just as she moves in she uncovers a shocking secret. When a Sohma Family Member is hugged by the opposite sex they turn into there Zodiac Sign Animal. The Series gets better and better as it goes on. The last 2 Episodes are very emotional.
";-; The Last Episode of Fruits Basket was so sad"
A wonderful anime that is hilarious and moralistic. Very lovable. Was originally a comic for girls in Japan. Can be enjoyed by people of all ages and genders.
Episode 14 is hilarious. The characters are very original. The idea is also original.
A character rather than plot based manga about sixteen year old Tohru Honda, who lives with the Sohma family after her mother's death. She discovers the Sohma family secret, that they are possessed by the 13 animals of the Chinese Zodiac, and when they become weak or get hugged by someone of the opposite sex, they turn into their Zodiac animal. Tohru becomes friends and helps over come fears and troubles with all of them.
There are an awful lot of main characters, and you can divide them into separate catergories, cursed and non cursed.
The Cursed catergory is...
Sohma Akito-God Figure
Sohma Ren-Akito's mother
Uotani Arisa (Uo-chan)
Hanajima Saki (Hana-chan)
A very interesting manga with deep characters that you feel pain, happiness, and sorrow for.
Kyo ends up with Tohru, deal with it, Yukiru fans. :D
The manga > The anime
The anime is stupid, and ends after 26 episodes, and only goes up to book 8. There are 20 (at least) Fruits Basket books published in Japan.
Fruits Basket is published twice every month in Hana To Yume.
Thank you Takaya-sensei.
I love Fruits Basket.
The story of 16 year old Tohru Honda who lives by herself in a tent after her grandfather has to remodel. She runs into the Sohma family and she learn that the family is cursed! The family turns into animals of the Chinese Zodiac when hugged by a member of the opposite sex! Very original story by Natsuki Takaya-sensei and beloved anime/manga. I highly recommend this to any anime/manga fan!
You're an apple!
You're a banana!
You're an orange!
Honda-san, you're the riceball.
I waited patiently for them to call "riceball"..
But I never thought things through enough to know..
That there's no way a riceball can be in a Fruits Basket.
Example 2: The snow always melts
Example 3: Kyo: DAMN RAT! ><;
A shoujo anime series starring a 16 year-old girl who finds herself in many strenuous sexual hijinks with the Sohma family (who happens to turn into the twelve animals of the Chinese Zodiac when hugged by a member of the opposite sex). So kawaii!
Fruits Basket is the best anime series ever!
A touching story that will make you cry, laugh, and get angry. A manga that you can read over and over again without getting bored.
In my opinion, they should have done the entire manga for the fruits basket anime. The first 8 books isn't good enough (this sucks)
