* In the anime and manga series ''Manga/FruitsBasket'' all of the cursed members of the Sohma family (except for Yuki and Kyo) take their names from the traditional names of the months from the Japanese lunar calendar; for example, Isuzu "Rin" Sohma is named from "Isuzukure tsuki" (June) and Hatsuharu "Haru" Sohma is named directly from "Hatsuharu" (January).
