Fruits Basket


Fruits Basket is a 26 episode TV series based on the popular shoujo manga by Takaya Natsuki - Hakusensha Hana to Yume comics.

When her grandfather decides to renovate the house, Touru must find a temporary place to live. Rather than impose on her friends, Touru instead decides that now would be a good chance to learn what it means to live alone and be self sufficient and sets up a tent on some vacant land.

Souma Yuki fellow classmate and the most popular (and good looking) freshman lives with his cousin Shigure near where Touru set up her tent. When a landslide buries Touru's tent however, Shigure and Yuki take Touru into their home. In return, Touru agrees to take on all the housework. However, the Souma clan has a most unusual secret...
