Fruit Basket

Updated on December 3, 2012

Time for the Banquet.

Have you ever heard of the Zodiac's legend that all animals are invited to a banquet? However the cat miss the banquet as the mouse lied to him about the date of the banquet. Have you ever wonder why the mouse is scared of the cat and run away from it? Or why the cat eats the mouse, could it be for revenge?

I want to hug you^^...

Tohru Honda was on her way to school when she pass by a house where there is a box of zodiac animals on the floor. Shigure Sohma, was surprised to see her near the area as so far the area is quite deserted. Tohru-kun claimed that she lives near the area which is actually a tent which was set up near the Sohma House. At that moment,Yuki Sohma, who was Tohru's classmate came out form the house as a result both of them went to school together. Tohru-kun had two best friends in the school which are Arisa Uotani, who was a former gang members under the chief who was Tohru's mother and Saki Hanajima,a psychic girl who has the ability to sense people's "auras" and send out electric "waves". Both of them always protects Tohru from danger and helped her out whenever they can. However Tohru kept the secret that she is lving in the tent from them as she do not want them to worry about her. Tohru has to go for her part-time job in the evening and by the time she reached home she is always tired out.

When she came back form her job that day, she was feeling rather unwell and was prepare to wash up and sleep. Just when she came out from her tent, she saw Yuki-kun and Shigure-kun looking into her tent. Yuki-Kun brought her to their house and eventually offered to let her stay in the house. Tohru-kun do not know that there is actually a secret that the Sohma were trying to protect which was that they were actually zodiac spirits and when the opposite sex hug them, or they got too nervous, they will change back to their animal forms. When Tohru knew of this secret, she promised to keep the secret well and even helped them in various problems. One by one different zodiac animals visited their house with the motive of taking a look at Tohru. Her closest friends also visited the House as they are worried about her living with other guys.

The Characters Introduction

Honda Tohru

I admired her as she is very independent and responsible for her wn actions, she always look blur and that makes her really cute. I love her advice towards the other zodiac as i get to learn something through the process too. I love how she treasure her mum who died by keeping her photo safe.

Kyo Sohma

The cursed 'cat' who did not end up in the zodiac, this makes Kyo to challenge Yuki-Kun as he is angry about that matter,otherwise Kyo is a thoughful guy who is caring towards Tohru. The most memorable thing about him is cooking leek porridge for Tohru when she was sick even though he hate leeks.

Hatsuharu Sohma

The 'ox' in the zodiac, i love his cool attitude and that he could turn into 'Black Haru' when he is truly annoyed by people that he dislikes. It is so cool to see him turn into an ox just to let Yuki-kun lie on it and walked back to the Sohma House, it is good that their misunderstanding had ended.

Ayame Sohma

The 'snake' of the zodiac and is also the elder brother of Yuki, it is heartwarming to see how he is trying to make up to Yuki for being distance form him when they were young. I like how he turns into a snake and faster wriggle to Tohru to seek warm and scolded by Yuki who forbid him to do so.

I love Fruits Basket anime very much as i find their episodes very touching especially when they are talking about the bunny's stories. I cried when i saw the bunny unable to acknowledge his mother and his mother treated him like a complete stranger. There is also a lot of funny parts in the anime such as when Kyo Sohma challenged Yuki-Kun, i love how they fights each other which is exciting.

Squidoo citizens and Manga Otaku's out there, tell me tell me....
