Fruit basket synopsis

Tohru Honda has always been fascinated by the story of the Chinese zodiac that her loving mother told her as a child. However, a sudden family tragedy changes her life and the circumstances that follow leave her alone. Tooru is now forced to live in a tent, but little realizes that her temporary home is on the private estate of the Souma family. When he bumps into his house one day, he meets Shigure, Souma's older cousin, and Yuki, the "prince" of their school. Tohru explains that she lives nearby, but the Soumas finally discover their well-kept secret of being homeless when they see them go back to their tent one night.

Things are starting to improve for Tohru as they kindly offer to take her in after learning of her situation. But soon afterwards she gets into a fight between Yuki and her quick-tempered cousin Kyou. While trying to stop them, he learns that the Souma family has a well-kept secret: every time they are hugged by a member of the opposite sex, they transform into animals of the Chinese zodiac. With this new revelation, Tohru will discover that living with the Soumas is an unexpected adventure full of laughter and romance.
