Well the manga was longer and also in the manga we saw the characters' personalities more developed, as well as their relationship with each other and their love interests. The anime only cover Tohru and her friendship with Yuki and Kyo

THIS POST HAS SPOILERS!!!!


The manga lasts way longer than the anime. That's the biggie, since all the other stuff that's left out is because of this.

The anime is missing a lot of the zodiac members, and some other characters. In the anime, you get Tohru, Yuki, Shigure, Uo-chan and Hana-chan, Kyou, Kagura, Momiji, Hatori, Haru, Ayame, Kisa, Hiro, and Akito. You also see Yuki's crazy fangirls, hear about Kana . . . I think that's about it for characters. That's the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, sheep, dog, and boar, plus the cat and the god. The manga has the full-blast character range of twelve zodiac members plus the cat and dog, meaning that Isuzu/Rin (the horse), Ritsu (the monkey), and Kureno (the rooster) appear. (I can never remember if Ritsu comes out in the anime or not.) The manga also has Kyoko's story.

Yuki's character also develops with school characters when he's elected student council president; Manabe, Machi, Kimi, and a serious guy whose name I can never remember become important to him. In fact, he actually likes Machi and asks her out at the end. Another thing is that Manabe's girlfriend's dad was the driver of the car that killed Kyoko - he died, too. You learn some stuff about how he and Tohru become somewhat-friends; before he thought she acted sorry for herself and didn't like her.

The relationships are way more complicated in the manga. For example, Manabe and Machi are respective the vice president and secretary (?) of the student council, but they're also half-brother and -sister. Apparently their mothers are super-competitive to see which of them inherits, which has messed Machi up (she's the daughter of the mistress - I think - so she was under more pressure to do well). You figure out that Yuki only sees Tohru as a mother. And there's a whole twisty relationship between little Kyou and Kyoko, way back when.

There are a lot more couples, and they're a lot more decided, too. From the more obscure ones . . . when the curse breaks - which it does - Ayame hooks up with Mine. Akito - who was actually a girl - reverts back to being female and restarts her relationship with Shigure. There are not-too-subtle hints that Hatori is considering going out with this teacher who was, from what I remember, one of Shigure's old girlfriends. The fanbook also says that Ritsu is tiptoing around Mit-chan, but I didn't really get that image from the manga. Uo is in the process of getting together with Kureno. It appears as if Kisa and Hiro will go on to go out. Momiji (who liked Tohru, like like) and Kagura (who liked, of course, Kyou) are left partnerless. The big pairs work out fine: Rin and Haru, Yuki and Machi, and - of course - Tohru and Kyou.

In fact, Tohru and Kyou move far away together after graduation, for Kyou to train in order to become a shishou like his foster father. They get married, and very very end of the manga shows Tohru and Kyou (wearing traditional clothes!) from the back, holding hands. The pages before indicate, very vaguely, that they are old now, and the little girl asking about them to a woman in the kitchen is probably their granddaughter, and the woman their daughter(-in-law).

Oh, and the story of the zodiac is presented in a unique way. It was touching - far more so than the original.
