User Reviews

Best Anime Series of all Time!
7 September 2004 | by (Adelaide, Australia) – See all my reviews

After watching the first episode of Fruits Basket, I knew I had to see more. After buying the DVD's, every episode got better and better. It is such an enjoyable series.

It is funny, touching and more. Every character who comes into it (excluding the Yuki fan club girls) are likable and there is something good about them all.

Although it is an animated series, the characters seem so real and it feels as if it really happening to someone you care about.

The ending was great, even though there were a lot of problems still unsolved. This just leaves it open for another series (let's cross our fingers) or if not another anime series, it will continue with the manga.

The thing about Fruits Basket is that it deals with real life problems (except in different ways) like not being excepted for who you are or what you look like.

This series is recommended to any anime fan or even non-anime fans will enjoy it whether you're laughing out loud or feeling for the characters as they go through their pain and problems.

5/5 stars
