Fruits Basket is a famous shoujo anime adapted from the manga.I think it deserve the popularity it has garnered.It teach you a thing or two about life,and it's not bad.

Although the ending of the anime doesn't satisfy me,i would say the rest of the episodes make me feel like the way i feel when i was reading the manga.All the characters here have their own issues,and of course,sad past.These people are so adorable,you feel like hugging them and telling them it is okay.The background song fits the story perfectly.The opening song in my opinion,is excellent.The seiyuus did a great job.The one thing that really attracted me is the character development and the interaction between the characters.You can clearly see how Tohru changed everyone's life bit by bit after she appeared.Tohru may seem to some to be unreal,as a girl who is innocent,sweet,kind,helpful,cute etc etc is very very very very hard to find in the real world.And this unreal character charms everyone in the series.She is like their mother.They begin to open up more,and some warm up to her,happy that a person who has a mother like nature appeared in their lives.

While my above description make it seem like it is sad,it is not as there are humour in this series as well.Each character in the series are so different and colourful,and they provide the comedic relief.The drama,romance,friendship,action(i dont know whether you can consider some butt kicking as action but oh well... ) fits perfectly well.It is balanced.There are some episodes that really make you shed tears,while some leaves you in a fit of laughter.

Fruits Basket is a rare gem.Get it.

Fruits Basket is definately a one-of-a-kind anime that you won't find any where else. The only complaint I have about it is that the manga continues for so much longer, that when you only see the anime you miss half of the fun. There are only 26 episodes that have to cover a 136 chapter manga, so you don't ever get to see alot of the really good stuff that happens, and the ending is really sucky.

There are good parts to, obviosly! I'm not only going to list the anime's short commings ^_^. The charactors are all completely complex and hilarious, with tragic pasts and life-stories that you won't find anywhere else. I love the relationships the charactors have with one another, like the way Kyou and Yuki fight constantly or how Tohru is loved by every one except Hiro, the Prince Yuki Fan Club *giggles*, or Akito Souma. The anime and the manga both have a calming feel to them, a complexity and a way of putting every thing that is verry refreshing and relaxing, somehow. You just have to love it, and the artwork in the manga as well as the animation are beautiful and very smooth. It has a feeling of sadness or seriousness in alot of places, but there is also alot of comic relief from the charactors and the situations, or the way thart every thin turns out. It's beautifully done, two thumbs wayyyyy up!!! ^_~

KYAAA!! Furuba is indeed one of the best series anyone can ever come to love! Indeed, indeed! Heart breaking, with bishis and kawaii animals, all made into one incredible slice of life romance! Though, the anime has absolutely nothing on the manga. The anime ended very choppily and unsatisfying, which really didn't match too well with the build-up of the rest of the series, and because it only covers a FRACTION of the entire manga series (which is beyond amazing) I'm pushed to believe that perhaps the production didn't have enough money to continue (then again, maybe they did run out of money, so they slapped on a rushed ending so that, when they got the money from the incredible sales they were sure to amass, they could use money to finish it with a second season, buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut that never happened. don't know why, either, since it DID go through the roof when it was released... ) Even so, for those who aren't really all that into having to read the 23 volume series, the anime really is awesome! And when you fall in love, I highly recommend reading the series to find out how it all gets resolved!!!

I love frutis basket. The plot is kind of simple and it gives the viewer a very good feeling. Also I have to agree the ending seemed a little confusing and it didn't seem like it was an ending (there was more to talk about, a lot of empty wholes to fill, but it didn't talk about those issues).
Overall even with the lacking ending the rest of the episodes were very good and interesting.

OMG! I loved this anime! It was the first one I really got into. Even my friends who hate anime loved it. It's got something for everyone. Romance, Comedy, Drama, Martial arts, Mystery and more. I loved it so much that I'm reading the manga. The manga is just as interesting.

Yes indeed, once you reach volume 18 and look back at the first ever drawing of yuki, he looks like an alien, but it gets better! it's the way it always goes for manga-ka who start a really freakin long series, thier style shifts around, and the art really does become excessively beautiful. Really, I promise!

(First Yuki)


(Later, and older version of Yuki)
