In most of the series, one can see her helping others through her light and optimistic nature. It all came through the nurturing that was given by her mother Kyoko, who was known for wisdom.


After the death of her father, Tohru became somewhat independent and hard-working. But when it comes to the death of her mother, she became heartbroken but at the same time, knew how to collect herself for the betterment.


Despite the fact that she has a cheerful nature, there is a side to her that manages to stay concealed. This woman manages to act as a shield to anyone and everyone as she knows what horror, terror, trauma, and misery feel like.


And as we all know, these experiences are common for everyone.

However, one cannot ignore her humorous nature with rare emotions. The best part of her is to do anything for her friends to protect them.


And due to the same reason, she becomes an extremely-headed person. Just because of her abilities and powers, Saki appears to be very perspective and chooses the things that everyone ignores.


Therefore, her character comes off as a lot more unique and creative in terms of being a human. This is why she is someone who deserves more love and appreciation from fans all around the globe.


The fact that this anime is so good is supplemented by Saki’s presence.

After the death of Katsuya, she gave her best for her child and shaped her with wisdom and perfect character.


Her wise characteristics can be seen through sharing her wisdom with others, especially her loved ones. It can be seen through Tohru who decided to rely upon the wisdom of her mother and built her own life.

Arisa of Fruits Basket is a person who is ready to change herself for the betterment. It can be seen through her dialogue, ”I also wanted to change. I’d never felt that way before. “I’m through being like this.” I thought. I wanted to change.”


She is their bestie of Tohru and a former member of a girl gang called The Ladies.


From the very first meeting with Kureno Arisa got attracted to him, however, got rejected because Kureno promised to be with Akito.


As a troubled teenager, Arisa was violent and had anger issues. She hated herself at peace and kind. Her behaviour changed because Tohru resigned to quitting the gang.


This woman ended up being quite fun and cheerful to be around. However, what separates her from the rest is the fact that this woman, despite having a lively attitude, is someone who experiences loneliness and emptiness, making her a lot more interesting and captivating. 



5. Kisa Sōma


kisa sōma


Because of her natural golden hair, Kisa became the victim of harassment and bullying. It was just Tohru who understood her problems and stress.


And that is the reason why Tohru helped her to come out of anxiety and fear. This resulted in their friendship which almost became like a sibling one.


At the beginning of the series, Kisa appears to be very violent because of her being bullied. However, in the end, she became loving and kind because of the behaviour change.


Her sensitiveness can be seen through her easily shaken nature that breaks her down into tears. Even after having all these things, she prefers to collect her true feelings and smile outward.


Her character is way beyond our comprehension as we see her perform beautifully on screen. The way she reacts makes her a lot more human than what you might expect and that’s one of the many reasons why she is placed here on our list.


She is a gorgeous woman. 



6. Kureno Sōma


Kureno Sōma


Being one of the oldest members of Sōma, Kureno was the former Rooster from the Chinese Zodiac. Even after getting free from his zodiac, Kureno always pretended to be a part of it and is determined to stay with Akito.


The personality of Kureno matches very well with Tohru for being kind and polite. Having a little experience of the outside world, he found himself away from it.


The selflessness of Kureno is somewhat a strength but at the same time a weakness too. Kureno never shares his feeling with someone including his desire for Arisa.


He always cares about those who are around him and help them in any situation even if it makes him suffer.



7. Ritsu Sōma


Ritsu Sōma


Also known as Ri-chan, Ritsu is the only child of Okami and a third-year student at a private college.


Coming to the Chinese Zodiac sign, he is a Monkey with low self-esteem. Initially mistaken as a woman by Tohru because of his women’s dress, Ritsu never felt any kind of pressure from society.


He is a timid person with many insecurities. These insecurities are the result of his inferiority complex. The same has become the reason to take the blame for everything and overreact about it.


Because of his low self-esteem, he apologizes constantly even if he is not at fault. Due to all these things, one can guess correctly of him being a kind person with a very humble nature.


At first, he lacked purpose in life but got inspiration from Tohru and ended up finding his love.



8. Isuzu Sōma


Isuzu Sōma


The best personality description of Isuzu can be seen through her dialogue where she said, ”It’s better if I go it alone. I’ll keep running alone. Nobody has to understand me. It’s easier if they hate me. It’s better if I’m all alone. That’s what I decided, and I intend to stick with it. I decided I wouldn’t cry…”


She is known as Rin rather than as Isuzu. She has a romantic relationship with Haru which later on converted into a break-up just to protect him from the curse.


Despite having a wish for being alone, Isuzu is a somewhere happy and sweet person at the beginning of the series.


It all changed when her parents abandoned her and she became quite alone. Due to the same reason, it became hard for Rin to trust anyone but later on, she gained it over Haru with a kind personality.

Hiro Sōma, the recurring character of Fruits Basket, is the brother of Hinata Sōma and the son of Satsuki Sōma.


His love for Kisa has led to trouble for Kisa. It can be seen when Akito has beaten Kisa as Hiro has confessed his love for her.


Due to the same reason, he felt like a coward and upset for not protecting his love. Being very good at making sarcastic comments as well as complaining, he loves to insult people.


His argument is never going to stop because of heavy words and circling talk. Most of the time he was seen talking and the same resulted in many troubles, especially for his love towards Kisa.


However, he tried to improve throughout the series for his and the sake of his love.



11. Hatori Sōma


Hatori Sōma


Taking centre stage as one of the main characters in Fruits Basket: The Three Musketeers Arc, Hatori is a dragon of the Chinese Zodiac, playing a crucial role within the story. His unique ability to erase the memories of outsiders who stumble upon his family’s secret sets him apart.


Hatori’s membership in the Three Musketeers trio is incomplete without the presence of Ayame and Shigure. Although initially perceived as distant and stoic, Hatori’s true nature reveals him to be gentle and compassionate at heart.


His sincere concern for the happiness of others becomes both his greatest strength and his greatest burden. Hatori is easily affected when he inadvertently causes pain to those he has wiped from memory.


Despite his serious disposition, he adds touches of humour through clever punchlines.

His stubborn, sharp tongue and short-tempered nature are very common for him. But at the same time, a charismatic nature with a bit of emotion made it attractive.


The change in his nature can be seen in the presence of Tohru which made him genuine and patient.


However, he feels he doesn’t deserve Tohru and that’s why he rejected her after her confession. In the end, they both became good friends through an apology from Kyo.

Behind his cheerful personality, a sad life story is hidden. He lives alone because his mother rejected him by erasing her memory and due to the same reason Momo was unaware of him being her older brother.

In the end, it was revealed Akito is the female as her mother was hiding her identity because of feeling ashamed about giving birth to a girl.

Having multiple names like The Destroyer and Chi-chan (called by Komaki), Machi is a 16-year-old student in the same High School as the other characters.


She was seen in quite a few episodes of Fruits Basket as the younger sister of Kakeru Manabe. Serving as the treasurer of the student council, Machi was shown as a quiet and emotionless girl.


Her destructive nature can be seen through those things that are considered too perfect for her. It is because of her being pressured since childhood, which was done by her mother, leading her to become perfect.
