Description
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.

this manga is bad. I don't know maybe it's because I am a guy but I found it was boring, had a bad plot and characters. Deserves a 0.

I LOVE this manga... while the art isn't as good as CLAMP and Tanemura Arina, and it's not action-exciting all the time, but, I have got to say, in terms of serious themes/messages and realistic portrayals of people, Takaya-sensei is best >_<. It's really a serious (but cute and funny too sometimes!) manga about finding the stories/secrets/backgrounds behind why people are the way they are.

It is very interesting to observe the psychology of the characters, they are all very well thought-out and each is unique with their own story to tell. Even though the zodiac curse is the opposite of reality, the people who are under the curse, their fears, their individual sufferings, their loneliness and feeling of isolation are all very real. It is beautiful to watch Tohru and slowly everyone reaching out to each other and really live. And everyone learns a lesson of some sort from each other, even Tohru. I can relate to so many of the characters, even if it's a small aspect or to smaller extents.

It's a great series, that really becomes more interesting just after the 16 vol. It's the time in wich many secrets come to life, and you start to understand more and more. It's a very sad and romantic manga, and I love it. It's my fav, and i just can't wait to see the ending... Go Tohru.. Go Kyo ^^

I LOVED the anime, and though the art is quite nice, the story because extremely boring, pointless, and laggy after volume 7.

I give it a negative ten.... Mostly just the manga, not the anime. I don't like Natsuki Takaya, she bad person. Just wait until you get to the chapters I have.... You won't like her very much either... That's why we don't need another season of the anime...
