Heartfelt and Real
19 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

Fruits Basket can be summed up in a few phrases: Girl meets boy and cousins. Girl accidentally hugs one cousin. Cousin turns into bright orange cat with a bad attitude. Girl also has full body contact with boy and his other cousin, and is presented with a rat and a dog as well.

Part romance, part comedy, part drama, part action, Fruits Basket blends together characters that feel real and people can identify with. The animation quality is high end, with soft coloring and amazing watercolor backgrounds.

The animation is based on the manga of the same title by Natsuki Takaya. Fans of the manga will recognize many of the scenes as some are taken straight from the manga panels. It remains fairly faithful to the original manga.

If you enjoyed the manga, you will enjoy the anime. Funny, thought-provoking, and sad, Fruits Baskets will make you feel all of your emotions in a way you've never felt them before.
