Also a fan favourite anime, volume 1 finds Tohru Honda, an orphaned girl living in a tent on the Sohma estate. When one of the family takes pity on her and invites her to stay with them. They think they are the kindest people imaginable, but once she starts to live with them in exchange for cooking and cleaning chores, she causes a stir. When Kyo comes back and wants to chase Yuki around the house, Tohru becomes scared, and hugs Kyo - turning him into a cat, and exposing the Sohma curse.

Fruits Basket has the introduction and the characters, most of who are a lot of fun, especially Kyo and his constant battle with Yuki. With the whole of the family being members of the Chinese zodiac, it can get a bit difficult to live with for poor Tohru, who gets embroiled into the whole Kyo and Yuki batttle. I found it a good read, liked the humor and thought the characters were really fleshed-out and three dimensional.
