Tohru Honda, an orphaned high-school girl, is taken in by the wealthy Shigure Sohma when he realizes she has nowhere else to go. However, the Sohma family shares a secret, and it isn't long before Tohru discovers that there's a reason why her classmates, Yuki and Kyo Sohma, never let girls get near them, and never talk about their lives before they lived with Shigure. And before she knows it, Tohru has become so tangled up in the lives of each member of the Sohma family that she couldn't leave even if she wanted to.

As she learns more and more about the truth of the Sohma family and the nature of their secrets, she desperately searches for a way that she can save them. But what can one girl do, especially when it seems that she may have been part of someone's plan all along . . .

Fruits Basket received the 2001 Kodansha Manga Award in the shoujo manga category and the "Best Manga" award at the 2007 American Anime Awards.

I started to read this manga a long time ago but somehow lost interest around volume 8... but I cant even recall why... however I started to reread this manga and was surprised how heart wrenching it became during the last volumes. I really cried several minutes and that did not happen before!

If you are a fan of unfinished stories you should simply skip the last or even the two last volumes, so you will be able to image what happens to the characters on your own smile

Furuba was one of the first mangas I have ever read and I truly love it.
I am very happy with the ending, it is how I wanted it to be (^__^)

Totally recommend it.

I'm glad this was the first manga I ever read - it got me hooked!

Fruits Basket is a sweet, cute, funny, touching, lovable story. The cast of characters are memorable and endearing.

I actually wasn't the least bit interested in this when it first started coming out. The main character sounded and looked really annoying and the story seemed to lovey dovey for me... but after probably about two or three years I read a little bit of it at the library to see what all the fuss was about, and i did (sadly) fall in love with it. The art was a little annoying at the beginning, but got better as the series progressed. This is not my favorite, but it is up there. I still don't think its as good as everyone says, but it was definitely worth reading! And a HUGE plus is that the ending was good! It always feels like no one ever knows how to end a story very well, so i was really impressed with that!

The Best Shoujo Manga Ever!!!!!!!!!

This manga is most likely my most favorite shoujo of all time. I first started this series buy just unsincerely buying the first volume. The book store had a buy 2 get 1 free sale and I had to choose a free book, I hadn't read manga before, since the manga I was buying that day was my first manga ever. So I just picked up the manga I saw my friend reading at school. I really didn't think I was going to like it. But I soon became obsessed with it. I immediately went back to the store and bought all the volumes they had availiable, which at the time was up to vol. 5 or so. Ever since then I bought the next volume whenever it came out. Sadly after reaching vol. 15 of my collection, I sold it, all 15 vol., which I regret to this day. It was only 5 days ago that I went on a mad search to find the cheapest place to buy the whole series back. two days ago I purchased vol. 1-18 and am anxiously awaiting their arrival. Just goes to show you how obsessed with it I am again. I still need to get vol. 19-23

In short, Furuba was the second manga I've ever read, my first being "Crescent Moon". I love this manga and you should too. The length of the manga makes it even better. And I like how it has a lot of side character stories and couples. It just makes me love it even more. Right now I'm currently interested in Mine's and Ayame's relationship, I only wish that the author wrote more about them.

i first watched the anime a couple years ago and then got interested in continuing the story in the manga. i never got the chance to finish it until now. it was better than i thought it'd be. the art at the beginning doesn't look that appealing, but later on, it improves significantly. it changes so much that the characters look totally different than before. a lot of scenes are heart-warming and tear-jerkers. i agree that the manga is so much better than the anime (didn't like the filler). i loved all the characters, even tohru. i really liked the comedy as well. even though it's long, i totally recommend it. i've read a lot of shoujo manga, but this is one of my top faves.

Well i've read this manga at least three times. First time was boring and I never got it, but after i watched the anime again and reread the manga, it was a really good manga. I cried in alot of the scenes. LOL a little bit crazy, yes, but they were very touching scenes and really sad.
I really like the art but at the beginning it was pretty rough and slightly ugly. bigrazz Characters were all sooo adorrabblle >.< except for the main character, tohru was just too nice. Storyline.. hm.. a bit skippy but its all good.

I just loved it. : 3.

the story has a good premise but tohru just annoyed the hell out of me. how can anyone really be that happy and smiley all the time? i only read it because of rin and hatsuharu, she really did a lot of characterization with them. tohru doesnt really grow up or change throughout the series, and the art is mediocre at best.i hate how their eyes look like rectangles. i give it a 4 for the plot, which made me laugh sometimes.

they used that little blonde boy for emotional effect one too many times and i grew sick of it. the story was so good otherwise (though i don't usually like the empty-headed types who's redeeming quality is her deep understanding of emotion) so i'm gearing up to read the manga. which is generally always better than the anime.

here's hoping.
