Anime: Fruits basket
Tohru Honda is 16 year old orphaned girl who gets invited to live in the house of her classmate, the handsome boy Sohma Yuki, and his cousins, 16 year old Kyo and 27 year old Shigure. However, these young men and parts of the rest of their family (both close and distant) hold a curse; if they are hugged by the opposite gender, they transform into animals of the Chinese Zodiac. Everyday is an adventure for sweet Tohru, as she gets to know everyone in the large family better (especially Yuki and Kyo), in both common and bizarre situations. But, the Sohma Family curse is certainly no laughing matter... it also holds horrible cruelity and heartbreak.Source
The first thing i remember from when i watched this anime was laughter, i just couldn't stop laughing. The humor of Fruits basket is something i can't denie, at some point in this anime the brother of Yuki makes his appearance and whoever created that personality is a genuis. Not wanting to spoil anything i suggest you start watching
The story is good to, not awsome but good enough for me to say that i can watch it again (i rewatched this about 5 times or something). Its not a solid story, but it got his twist and moments that makes it definitly worthwhile.
The personalities are fantastic, every Sohma zodiac member seems to have his own problems and lucky for them Thoru is there to help in anyway she can. The personalities really diverce from each other, for instance you have the insecure person, off the charts confidence or overerly obsessed with love person.
So, in short this drama anime is very good for persons who enjoy a good laugh but like to see some very touchy moments.
