is there an anime called fruits baskets? i cant start to imagine wat that would be like. wats the storyline?

Ive seen a couple DVDs of that, it is a wierd title, and a wierd show, pretty funny. Not Jerry Springer funny, I meant David Lettermen funny. (US joke so you don't have to laugh)

It's an...interesting show...that's really all you can say about it.

basically, this girl named tohru is living in a tent in the woods while her grandfather is remodeling his house. She finds a house one day on her way to school and notices some stones painted like the animals of the chinese zodiac. the story basically revolves around the sohma family, which has 10 members who, when hugged (i dont know why its hugging) by a member of the opposite sex, change into their respective animal. sohma yuki is the rat, sohma shigure is the dog, sohma kyo is the cat (the cat is part of a legend that i'll explain if you want), and sohma kagura is the boar. i've only read the first manga and was trying to get more information on it.

ive seen a little of fruits, its kinda boring because its more for girls. My AP literature teacher is obsessed with anime and oftentimes lets me borrow anime. She happens to have Fruits Basket so ive seen some of it.

I TA for lionheart's AP Lit teacher and she has spoken very highly of Fruits Basket, but it seems a little girly for me. But then again, I thought Kare Kano was too girly but it's actually really funny and deep.

10-04-2004, 06:00 PM
*laughs hysterically* DEEP?! AHAHA HA HAHAHAHA...ok im done. Seans right it is deep, but its also INCREDIBLY silly and random which can take away from the deepness. All and all its a good series.

11-04-2004, 05:25 AM
iv'e only read the first kare kano. is the rest any good?

11-04-2004, 05:14 PM
oh yeah it gets real good, refer to njdss4s thread about the series. Its just a shame that the anime series cut off on ep26 because they ran out of money to animate it but the manga go on til like ep 80 or so and they arent done yet!

12-04-2004, 04:02 AM
wow. for reals?

13-04-2004, 02:05 AM
I've seen it! It's pretty good. I'm year of the snake, Ayame. He's my fav too. I'm a lot like him too. I'm either like him, Momiji, or Hatsuharu. I can turn on ya in a snap!

13-04-2004, 02:13 AM
ouuu melfi cute avy ;) . Yeah Karekano is cool, from what i saw of Fruits, i think Kyo was pretty much the best but whatever.

13-04-2004, 02:15 AM
Yeah, Kyo was cool. He's always beating up on poor Momiji! But, if he didn't, there wouldn't be as much funny stuff!

13-04-2004, 02:49 AM
yep you gotta have the random guy getting beat up on otherwise its not an anime lol.

13-04-2004, 03:44 AM
kyo rocks! even though he loses to yuuki, he never gives up. i admire him for that.

14-04-2004, 12:54 AM
I like Hatsuharu too. It's awesome when he goes black. Hmmm....There's an idea. "Don't make me go black on you!" I'll say that next time someone ticks me off.

14-04-2004, 01:26 AM
this is off topic but your avy doesnt look like Kurama Melfi lol. He looks like a chick...im sorry i just had to get that out.

14-04-2004, 02:12 PM
nah, you just have to know kurama like we do!

14-04-2004, 05:33 PM
Yeah! Get with it Lion! Like Ayame, he may look quite like a chick, but he's still hot. (See, I'm back on subject!)

14-04-2004, 06:41 PM
did anyone notice that kyo and hiei act similarly?

14-04-2004, 09:33 PM
yeah i suppose...

15-04-2004, 01:00 AM
Yeah, they do. Eh, well, just about every show has to have the "badass" You know how it goes.

15-04-2004, 02:33 AM
eyah they do, so its a given.

17-04-2004, 08:56 PM
yuuki and kurama, kyo and hiei, tohru and kaeko...

18-04-2004, 02:47 PM
It's a conspiracy! They're trying to make all anime connected. Wierd. Although, Keiko and Tohru aren't too alike. Tohru worries more, and Keiko slaps more.

18-04-2004, 02:59 PM
tohru slaps, she knocked the crap out of kyo in vol 1. but then again, she was scared when she did that....

18-04-2004, 07:36 PM
yeh tohru is not nearly as angry as keiko.

18-04-2004, 08:05 PM
heheh. I remember that part. Kyo's a stakler! That was pretty gewd. But, yeah, Keiko is waaay angrier.

19-04-2004, 12:47 AM
well i believe im goin to unsubscribe from this thread seeing as i know little of fruits.
