As far as cute anime series go, Fruits Basket is up there among the cutest!
As a shoujo (girls) anime it contains a nice balance of humour, drama, action and even some dark and spooky themes. As the series goes on you find out that the curse of the Sohma family isn't as light-hearted as it seemed at first.
Each character in the series has his or her own unique personality, and most of them have dark pasts which are revealed to the main character, Tohru, as she tries her hardest to find out more about the cursed Sohmas. Despite this fact, you will find yourself loving a lot of the characters over time and even hating the nasty ones.
This is a delightful anime that will make you laugh, cry, think and perhaps even swear. And although it is merely an animated cartoon it has a lot of good morals in it that really make you wonder about yourself and others. Heart-warming and lovable, Fruits Basket is one series that I am thankful for having the chance to see.
