The manga book version of this series has a much darker tone. It is like Alice Academy with a young girl protagonist who's parents are dead and she must live with others. In Fruits Basket, relationships become complicated, too many characters are introduced that I found myself not caring about anyone in the end, and the protagonist makes a personality flip midway through from an optimistic, bubbly girl to a depressed, clingy whiner. Never have I seen a manga with so much angst.. At least Alice Academy had the decency to pull out of depression streak, but Fruits Basket just continues to be a debbie downer till the very end. Fruits Basket is memorable in that many people recommend it, yet supiciously never seem to finish it.

Don't let me scare you away from this anime series, though. Luckily the anime tv show never delves into the ditch of madness the manga does. The tv show maintains the happiness of early Fruits Basket manga with brief instances of melancholy. Not many characters from the manga are met. Lots of prime comedy. It has a different ending than the manga and let me just say that is a good thing...!
