So I figured I went over the obvious animes/mangas but boy was I wrong. I FORGOT ABOUT FRUITS BASKET. I AM SO SORRY.
I have deprived you guys of one of most iconic animes/mangas.
This was the second manga I ever read and oh dear, it’s just so good.
So here’s the low down:
We got Tohru Honda (above), a regular high schooler. Just kidding, she’s a saint. She’s like the most perfect human being. She’s kind, and thoughtful, and adorable, and…
Right, back to the subject.
Tohru sadly lost her mom (not really a spoiler she tells you pretty much right away) and she was living with her grandfather. “Was” is the key word in that sentence.
Her grandfather decided to renovate his house because other members of the family wanted to move in with him.
Soo, our dear Tohru lied and told him that she was going to stay at her friend’s house because she didn’t want to be a burden.
So this is how we have our dear Tohru stuck out in the wilderness, living in a tent. This is where she is found by Yuki Sohma, and the fun begins.
