Story & Characters

All right, Fruits Basket, (or Furuba for anyone who cares enough to nickname the show) is a wonderfully, almost painfully cute little anime about love and friendship and acceptance.

many fun, humorous misadventures are had by all, and it's safe to say that every character has their own episode. Even though I've made some sarcastic comments, I really love Furuba. It's cute and it's happy, the characters are fun and original, and it has a nice meaning in the end. I have to say the only think that bothers me is the END. It is melodramatic and it COMPLETELY goes over my head. Kyou transforms into his 'true form' (why the DEVIL does he have a true form anyway?! There's no demented corrupted mutated cat listed ANYWHERE in the zodiac) and they make a big deal out of it when Kyou shows his 'true form' to Tohru. Tohru REALLY miffs me off here. She all runs away because she sees him and she's crying at his mother’s grave as if he just ripped off her leg. She's like, 'Now I can't go back, I have no right too.' That's when I start thinking, 'Why am I still watching this?' I don't understand why Tohru has doubts and why everyone else is sobbing just because she sees Kyou looking like one of those tree things from.

Art

Furuba is a cute anime that can really brighten your day if you watch the right episodes. the characters are well done and well developed, and it's just really huggable. You'll especially be interested if you're into cute love relationships (especially love triangles,) loyalty in friendship, and really strange crackhead Japanese humor. But, if you're like me, just don't watch it twice. Because Tohru's sweet niceness and Yuki's serious headcase issues really pluck at your nerves the second time around.

It's not horrible, but sometimes the Utena-esque style bothers me. The eyes are just creepy...It's really well done though, it just doesn't totally suit my tastes.

Sound

The music in Furuba is UNBELIEVABLY cute and adorable. Listen to the theme song (For Fruits Basket) just once, and you will fall in love. It's so so so so so sweet...And everything else is just cute and genki.

I like always the theme song "let me be with you" in the chobits anime, but its so damm bored when it repeats all the damm song... ..." let me beee whit you.. uh uhuhu yeeea uh uhuh yeaa" XD XD XD

here is some points to know about it.

- half of the movie is base on the music
- Pretty sad songs.
- The background sounds are unique and great
- it fits the story well, but is sometimes to much
- I can't really hear the words in the song.
- good sound effects and music's great
- lovely.
- The opening song's great but more would be better. XD

Presentation

They are things may bother me, but I really love the Furuba plot. It's not 'Let's save the world and do something REALLY important!' It's just the lives of some people who have it a lot different than us. Very cute and huggable.

Wonderful show... I cry more than I laugh when I read the comic, I have reached the 14th book already. Extremely touching and funny,u will laugh and the next second u might be crying. Fruits Basket focus a lot on relationship, I guess this is why I am hook onto it. Like many character and actually I find that not much ppl mention this, this book really reveal a lot of wisdom, maybe I guess u have to read the comic to understand it. It will teach u a lot of thing in life that why in this comic u will find that Tohru Honda(the main character) manage to heal so many of the hurt chinese zodiac animal.

All things considered, they established the characters really well. Tohru and Yuki bothered me at points, but they grew up wonderfully. So did their relationships with everyone else, and everyone was just original and fun, and it was just very well done!

    Sort of simple, but not a bad review.
