Volume 1

Fruits Basket (フルーツバスケット, sometimes abbreviated Furuba (フルバ)) is a Japanese manga series by Natsuki Takaya. It was serialized in the semi-monthly Japanese magazine Hana to Yume, published by Hakusensha, from 1999 to 2006. It received a 26-episode anime adaption, and Takaya later wrote a sequel titled Fruits Basket Another.

Plot

Although the anime is based on the first 8 volumes (the anime ends at halfway through book 8), there are some differences in the stories, such as Akito's life being short due to the curse and his still being male.

Each volume cover features main characters from the series. From volume 2 to 14, the covers are the characters who are cursed and they are used as the cover character in the order of which Tohru has met them. Volumes 15 and on feature Akito Sohma, Kazuma Sohma, Tohru's friends (Saki Hanajima and Arisa Uotani), Yuki's two new friends from student council (Kakeru Manabe and Machi Kuragi), Ren Sohma, and Tohru's parents (Katsuya Honda and Kyoko Honda; not in order).
