Review: Fruits Basket

Tohru Honda is a school student. Her mum has just died, so she longer has a house to live in and begins to camp out in the woods.  There she comes across the house of the most popular boy in her year and discovers his family's well-kept secret: they turn into animals if  hugged by someone of the opposite gender. Swearing to keep their secret, she starts to live with them whilst meeting lots of new family members on the way and overcoming her sadness and fears.
Good points:
There were lots of laugh out loud moments whether they were meant to be or not and the story-line was really unique. The characters had great background stories and each had their own individual personalities, and I had at least one character I could relate to which just added to how much I enjoyed it.
Bad points:
There was very little I didn't like about this anime so there won't be much in this section. One of the only bad points was that the drawings were very simple and child-like and there were a few swear words used but I could overlook that aspect.
