Ok, let's see. My favorite manga turned anime is Fruits Basket. I don't know anyone who hates Fruits Basket. This is probably one of the most widely enjoyed series out there. The story focuses on Tohru Honda who had just lost her mother the year before and in trying not to be a burden on anyone decided to live in a tent while going to school. Little did she know that the land she was living on belonged to the Sohma family and who happens to live here? Yuki Sohma, the most popular/sought after guy in school (he has his on fan club, much to his dismay) Now Yuki and Shigure (his older cousin) were not going to let this girl live in a tent by herself and they were in desparate need of a housekeeper. This is how Tohru enters into the lives of the Sohmas. While moving her meager belongings into an empty room, there is a loud crash! Someone smashes through the ceiling. It is another sohma by the name of Kyo and as he is threatening Yuki to fight, Tohru runs to grab him. POOF! He turns into a cat! Shigure comes up to see what the commotion is and as she runs over to Yuki and Shigure she trips into them. As they collide, Yuki turns into a rat and Shigure into a dog (which is only fitting since he's the lecher of the series). Well the secret is out! Members of the Sohma family are cursed by the spirits of the Chinese Zodiac. So let's review! There's a Dragon, dog, rat, ox, boar, tiger, snake, ram, rabbit, monkey. Now not to dissappoint anyone but there are 2 members that don't make an appearance in the anime the horse and the rooster (pity since the rooster is my sign ;P) Now, I mentioned that kyo turned into the cat, well, he's part of the family but "he'll never belong". So he's pretty much always pissed off unless Tohru is around. The anime tells the story a dozen times about the cat and the zodiac, so I'm just gonna say GO OUT AND GET THIS ONE!! If you only get one series this year THIS SHOULD BE THE ONE! The convenient thing about that is 1) It's 26 episodes on 4 discs, better for the wallet. 2) Put out by Funimation = great quality and extras on every disc. 3) Great translation with a great cast. Tohru Honda - Laura Bailey (YuYu Hakusho, Dragonball/Z/GT, Kiddy Grade) Yuki Sohma - Eric Vale (YuYu Hakusho, Dragonball/Z/GT, Kiddy Grade), Kyo Sohma - Jerry Jewel (YuYu Hakusho, Dragonball/GT, Blue Gender), Shigure Sohma - John Burgmeier (YuYu Hakusho, Dragonball/Z/GT) Hmmmm are we getting the drift with these series' actors? lol. But they deserve it. They're very talented and they fit the characters, so no complaints from me. So the anime is great and if you want more of it, I reccommend the manga. It goes further into the story plus you get to meet the last two characters, the horse and the rooster. So I'll leave it at that. I'll add some screencaps I took to give you an idea of the animation and character designs.
