I wanna be a riceball,
This review is from: Fruits Basket - Vol.1-4  [DVD] (DVD)
Fruits Basket is an anime series composing of 26 episodes based on the popular manga series of the same name. The DVD set comprises of 4 discs:
1. A Great Transformation?
2. What Becomes of Snow?
3. Puddles of Memories
4. The Clearing Sky
The extras include interviews with the Japanese voice actors and an interview with the director. There are no plans for a second series as apparently the manga creator didn't like the anime series. However, the anime stands alone as a completed work.
As you probably know, the story consists of Tohru and her life living with the cursed members of the Sohma family including the school `prince' Yuki. The plots are a mixture of comedy, romance and drama.
I first found the series online *ahem* and the story intrigued me enough to rent the series from amazon. I absolutely loved it. At first Tohru seemed like a Mary Sue; perfect in every way and everyone loves her but she wins you over as do all the other characters.
Episode 8 with Hatori really won me over as being really touching and sweet as I did not expect such depth of emotion to come from an anime. I own the DVDs and happily watch them when I need a good laugh or cry.
I recommend this series for anyone wanting to try anime and will appeal to girls especially! This series is a popular classic.
