After high school student Tohru Honda’s mother died in a car accident, Tohru decides to live with her grandfather. The renovations of his grandfather’s house cause her to live alone in the forest in a tent for a while. While going to school, she finds a house where her popular classmate Yuki Soma and his cousins Shigure and Kyo live. But the Soma family has a huge secret; they have a curse, twelve members of the family transform themselves (only when they are stressed, weak or when they are hugged by the opposite sex) in the animals of the Chinese zodiac, excluding Kyo, who is the cat. Tohru discovers the secret, and will change the clan’s life.
Tohru Honda: A very sweet and kindhearted young girl. Even though she lost both of her parents, she keeps smiling and being strong. She really cares about others and always wants to help them.
Kyo Soma: He is cursed by a cat. This animal does not belong the Chinese zodiac, because it is said in the legend that the rat tricked him. That’s why he hates Yuki so much, and always picks fights with him. He is always short-tempered, but very charming when he is around Tohru, which he is in love with.
Shigure Soma: He is cursed by the dog. He is the most funny and idiot character of the show. He is novelist, and hates working. Despite his pervert personality, he will help people who need entertainment.
Our favorite shoujo anime. Really entertaining, funny and sometimes heartbreaking, you will fall in love with the characters and the story, which is really original. The opening is a bit annoying, and hard to listen, but the soundtrack in general is nothing special, but decent. The animation is also really great, even though it is an old anime.
