Fruits Basket began in 1998 with a manga series created by Natsuki Takaya. The story follows the story of Tohru Honda, a recently orphaned but still cheerful girl who is adopted by the Sohma family, which includes the kind and handsome Yuki and the dashing Kyo. Tohru’s life changes when she discovers that the Sohma family harbors a strange secret: when they feel weak or are embraced by a member of the opposite sex, they transform into one of the animals from China. . The series received widespread acclaim upon its initial release and is considered by many to be one of the most influential shojo manga of the 1990s and early 2000s.
Takaya’s manga was originally adapted into a 26-episode anime series in 2001 by Studio DEEN. This original made many changes to the story and although it was well received at the time, Takaya has publicly stated that she is disappointed with the adaptation. An anime reboot, this time by studio TMS, began airing in 2019. The anime was co-produced by Funimation and ran for three seasons. While it also cuts some content from the original manga, the reboot aims to be a more faithful adaptation of Takaya’s original doc than the 2001 anime, and was generally well received by both critics and favorite viewers.
