Fruits Basket (Japanese: フルーツバスケット, Hepburn: Furūtsu Basuketto), sometimes abbreviated Furuba or Fruba (フルバ), is a Japanese shōjo manga series written and illustrated by Natsuki Takaya.  The series tells the story of Tohru Honda, an orphan girl who, after meeting Yuki, Kyo, and Shigure Sohma, learns that thirteen members of the Sohma family are possessed by the animals of the Chinese zodiac and cursed to turn into their animal forms when they embrace someone of the opposite sex or their bodies come under a great deal of stress. As the series progresses, Tohru meets the rest of the zodiac and the family's mysterious head, Akito Sohma, and eventually resolves to break the curse that burdens them.

Tohru Honda (本田 透, Honda Tōru) is an orphaned high school student who, at the start of the story, begins living with Shigure, Yuki, and Kyo Sohma in exchange for housekeeping. She loves to cook, describes herself as an excellent housekeeper, and has an after-school job as an office janitor to pay her tuition fees to avoid being a burden on her grandfather.[20] She is depicted as polite, optimistic, extremely kind, and selfless;[21][22] several other characters, including Kyo,[23] Rin,[24] and Saki,[25] tell her she needs to look out for herself and not shoulder everyone else's burdens. In the original Japanese, Tohru habitually speaks formally (see Honorific speech in Japanese), but not always correctly,[9] a habit she picked up from her father, Katsuya, after he died when she was three, as a way of replacing him in her mother's eyes.[26] Tohru's mother, Kyoko, raised her alone until she died in a car accident shortly after Tohru entered high school, a few months before the start of the story.

Isuzu Sohma (草摩 依鈴, Sōma Isuzu) is the Horse of the Chinese zodiac. She is often called "Rin" because that is an alternate reading of 鈴, the second kanji of her given name. She is tall and initially has hip-length dark hair; according to an author's note, Natsuki Takaya initially designed her with very short hair but then made it long to mimic the blowing of a Horse's mane in the wind.[145] Takaya's fans described Rin as, "the character in charge of sexiness."[146] Rin is depicted as stubborn and independent,[147] to the point she cannot stand being dependent on someone else,[24] traits associated with those born in her zodiac year; she is also sharp-tongued but concerned about others.
