** It's not just them, either; the whole school has {{Expies}} of all the previous characters, and some of it's instilled. Ruriko, for example, is president of the Sohma Fan Club and does it mostly out of duty to [[spoiler: her mother]], the previous head.

After the death of her mother, young Tohru Honda has been secretly living on her own in a tent. Her life changes forever when she stumbles upon the secret the estate she is living on illegally: the land is owned by the [[BigScrewedUpFamily Sohma family, who are afflicted by a HereditaryCurse that changes some members of the family into animals of the EasternZodiac when they are hugged by someone of the opposite sex that is not also a Zodiac member. Oh and the family is a hot bed of horribly abusive parents and children with enough emotional issues to make a shrink very very wealthy.

After the death of her mother, young Tohru Honda has been secretly living on her own in a tent. Her life changes forever when she stumbles upon the secret of the Sohma family, whose land she has been living on. They are afflicted by a HereditaryCurse that changes some members of the family into animals of the EasternZodiac when they are hugged by someone of the opposite sex that is not also a Zodiac member.

Now living with three of the Sohma family, every day is an adventure for sweet Tohru, as she gets to know all of the very different family members better, in both common and bizarre situations. But, the Sohma family curse is certainly no laughing matter...it also holds horrible cruelty and heartbreak. Despite this, the members of the Sohma family find a new peace thanks to the presence of Tohru.

Hailed as one of the best shojo series out there, during its seven years in-print (1999-2006) it was the best-selling shojo manga series in America, and often the second best-selling manga series in the US ''period'', beat only by [[Manga/{{Naruto}} a certain ninja]]. The company publishing it in English has gone under, but because of its popularity, copies of it are cheap and readily available in shops and sites such as Ebay. It was/is the 'gateway' story of many people new to manga, beautifully combining comedy, drama, and heartwarming into one long, deceptively complex story.

* SpinOffspring: So far, the narrative explicitly tells us that Mutsuki is Yuki and Machi's son, but by the looks of the other Sohmas in the story, it's quite obvious who ended up being the children of who.

* OvertookTheManga: Barely averted. Due to Natsuki Takaya's hand injury necessitating a leave of absence from the series, the anime would have done this had it continued any longer than it did.
