This is a complete episode listing for the anime series Fruits Basket. Based on the twenty-three volume manga series written by Natsuki Takaya, the series tells the story of Tohru Honda, an orphan girl living in a tent so not to trouble anyone who, after meeting Yuki, Kyo, and Shigure Sohma (who later ask her to do their housework in exchange for a room to stay in), learns that thirteen members of the Sohma family are possessed by the animals of the Chinese zodiac and cursed to turn into their cute formmeiiesa if they embrace anyone of the opposite sex who is not cursed by the Zodiac or if their bodies are under great deals of stress. Part comedy-part drama with a hint of romance, as the series progresses, Tohru learns of the hardships and hurts faced by the inflicted Sohmas, and through her own generous and loving nature, helps heal their emotional wounds. As she learns more about Yuki, Kyo, and the rest of the mysterious Sohma family, Tohru also learns more about herself and how much others care for her. The anime series only covers material from the first seven volumes of the manga, leaving the story incomplete. The final episode's story is unique to the anime series.

"Chiisana Inori" (小さな祈り, lit. Small Prayer?) is used for the series ending theme, except for episode twenty-five, which uses the song "Serenade" (セレナーデ, Serenēde?). In the English version, the theme songs were rewritten and redubbed with the English voice actresses Meredith McCoy performing the opening theme, Laura Bailey performing the 1st ending theme and Daphne Gere performing the 2nd ending theme.

Famous quotes containing the words list of, episodes, basket, fruits and/or list:

    The advice of their elders to young men is very apt to be as unreal as a list of the hundred best books.
    Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. (1841–1935)

    Twenty or thirty years ago, in the army, we had a lot of obscure adventures, and years later we tell them at parties, and suddenly we realize that those two very difficult years of our lives have become lumped together into a few episodes that have lodged in our memory in a standardized form, and are always told in a standardized way, in the same words. But in fact that lump of memories has nothing whatsoever to do with our experience of those two years in the army and what it has made of us.
    Václav Havel (b. 1936)

    Put all your eggs in the one basket and—WATCH THAT BASKET.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    The poor, stupid, free American citizen! Free to starve, free to tramp the highways of this great country, he enjoys universal suffrage, and by that right, he has forged chains around his limbs. The reward that he receives is stringent labor laws prohibiting the right of boycott, of picketing, of everything, except the right to be robbed of the fruits of his labor.
    Emma Goldman (1869–1940)

    Modern tourist guides have helped raised tourist expectations. And they have provided the natives—from Kaiser Wilhelm down to the villagers of Chichacestenango—with a detailed and itemized list of what is expected of them and when. These are the up-to- date scripts for actors on the tourists’ stage.
    Daniel J. Boorstin (b. 1914)
