I love this series!!! My husband is a huge manga fan and I got curious about Fruits Basket when I saw a preview for the animated series. Despite all the hardships she endured Tohru always remains hopeful and the series unwinds a love story that tugs at the heart strings

A charming story with a little fighting, a little comedy, and a lot of heart warming storyline and monologue.

My Rating: Pg-13+, mostly due to sparse language and violence.

This review is more for parents of the manga reader. I know many parents worry about manga as many teen ones involve fan service and crudeness. Reading through any nudity is old movie style (you see the shoulders from behind and a sweatdrop, or the reactions of the hapless veiwer while person is off screen for example). There is some language, but no f-bombs or crude language. Even this is very sparse, the comic centers around the characters personalities and the story rather than the naughtiness some books have.
