Fruits Basket, sometimes abbreviated Furuba, tells the story of Tohru Honda, an orphan girl who, after meeting Yuki, Kyo and Shigure Soma, learns that twelve members of the Soma family are possessed by the animals of the Chinese zodiac and they are cursed to transform into their animal forms when weak, stressed, or when embraced by anyone of the opposite sex who is not possessed by a zodiac spirit. Over the course of the series, Tohru learns of the hardships and pain faced by afflicted members of the Soma family, and through her generous and loving nature, she helps heal their emotional wounds. As Tohru learns more about Yuki, Kyo and the rest of the mysterious Soma family, she also learns more about herself and how much others care about her.
