FRUITS BASKET written by Natsuki Takaya starts with orphan, Tohru Honda living in a tent in the woods until she meets Yuki, Shigure, and Kyo Sohma. They invite her to live in their home, and she discovers their clan secret. The members of the Sohma family are cursed, possessed by animals from the Chinese zodiac. Whenever a member of the opposite sex not possessed by the zodiac hugs a Sohma, they change into their animal form.

This is one of my daughter's favorite anime series. So much so that after she watched the series, she read the manga online. The anime series leave you hanging at the end of the 26 episodes, plus the storyline is a bit different.

Wishing for a season 2, but there doesn't appear to be one.


  1. I loved this manga series as well. as for the anime, the rumor i heard is that there couldn't be a season 2 because they cast the voice actor for Akito before the mangaka got to the big spoilerific reveal about Akito's true identity that came about 2/3 the way in the series.

    Nice to find another anime fan in the YA writing world!!

  2. I love, love, LOVE Fruits Basket! Kyo is my favorite character.

  3. Hi S.Q,
    That's exciting news about a season two. I saw rumors of that on the internet, but I couldn't find anything to confirm. I hope this is the case. I would love to find out what happens. I haven't read the manga, yet.

  4. Kate,
    I know. Isn't he adorable. The voice actor makes him sound gruff, yet sensitive at the same time.


Now it's your turn. What do you think?
