Excerpt: "After a family tragedy turns her life upside down, plucky high schooler Tohru Honda takes matters into her own hands and moves out...into a tent! Unfortunately for her, she pitches her new home on private land belonging to the mysterious Sohma clan, and it isn't long before the owners discover her secret. But, as Tohru quickly finds out when the family offers to take her in, the Sohmas have a secret of their own--when touched by the opposite sex, they turn into the animals of the Chinese Zodiac!"
My Rambles: I love this series with my entire heart. I have an onigiri tattoo because of it and plan to get the zodiac itself at some point. I cry at the same spot every time because it's just written/drawn so beautifully. I remember waiting months for them to translate and finally sell them here, first author I ever caught up to during production lol. When Natsuki broke her dominant hand and furuba went on a hiatus they decided to make the first anime and royally messed it up. I have never been so thankful for a reboot until this series. The new art is gorgeous and the true completion of the story is *kisses fingertips* mwah
I have always related to Tohru, especially when I was younger and maybe that's why it hit so hard. My heart broke for Momiji cause I feel he got the worst end of the deal over all so he is a favorite of mine.
