Fruits Basket Plot
This is a story in which the protagonist is a small girl known as Tohru Honda. Tohru is actually an orphan girl who meets some new characters like Kyo, Yuki and Shigure. The trio belongs to a family known as the Sohma family. The orphan girl later comes to know about the curse that this family possesses and soon becomes their sympathizer. The family is actually possessed by Chinese zodiac animals.
They are forced to transform into these animals when these family members are weak, stressed and when they are hugged by anyone of the opposite gender that is not possessed by a zodiacal spirit. Thus, being a member of this cursed family is indeed something no one will wish to be.
Tohru the protagonist slowly learns more and more about them and she tries to give all of them some much needed emotional support. In return, the family also starts to love the protagonist. She is indeed a very lovable kid. So, this is the basic crux of Fruits Basket storyline.
