After a family tragedy turns her life upside down, 16 year old high schooler Tohru Honda takes matters into her own hands and moves out...into a tent. Unfortunately for her, she pitches her new home on private land belonging to the mysterious Souma clan, and it isn't long before the owners discover her secret. But, as Tohru quickly finds out when the family offers to take her in, the Soumas have a secret of their own--when hugged by the opposite sex, they turn into the animals of the Chinese Zodiac.

AN ABOLUTE MASTERPIECE
22 August 2019 | by elliemae-65279See all my reviews

No one can deny Takaya's original manga series, is absolutely marvelous. A timeless masterpiece, with dark undertones that get progressively darker as the series goes on. This is something that the 2001 anime completely failed to portray in every almost every aspect. 2001 was a bubbly, over the top, tiny portion of the actual story. I noticed someone in the reviews before stated that the 2019 version should have just picked up where 2001 left off. Well, if that person was a true fan then they would know that the 2001 version left out KEY ELEMENTS to the story that are VITAL later on in the series. So in conclusion, JUST NO. A reboot was absolutely necessary if you want the whole TRUE story to be told. And Takaya is doing just that, she is overseeing all of production and 20 episodes in, I AM AMAZED, not only with the animation, but with the subtle updates to this 20 year old story, and not to mention the way that they are switching story arcs around slightly to better express the on screen telling of this story. The music also is a lot better in the reboot- You can actually hear Yuki talking, something that didn't happen often in the 2001 version because the music was not only obnoxious, but way too loud. I am so excited to eagerly keep watching every week as Tohru helps people with her kind heart and words, not only in the series, but in real life too. I have always looked back on this series throughout my life and it has influenced a lot of decisions. I whole-heartedly recommend this to ANYONE, no matter your age or gender.
