Best Fruits Basket Characters

The Top Ten

1 Kyo

I really love Kyo shoma character. How he buried his past to get reason to live.
How deeply he been hurting but still struggle to life his little live happily before he be sent to prison.
Because if I at Kyo place, maybe I struggle to live my life too, but in deference way.
I will shut people out of my life forever.

Manga readers would understand too well why Kyo is the most-loved character in Fruits Basket. He has the best character and he is really appealing. One would suddenly root for him and it is truly understandable and relatable. I had so much respect for Kyo. No kidding, he's simply the best.

I love it when someone appears to be a badass but so kind and caring deep inside. That's Kyo. His character is awesome. He's my favorite then and now.

He is an amazing person on the inside and the outside. Although he's gone through so much he tries to be strong, for everyone. Although he may fight and lose his temper he has a kind caring heart. I also believe the reason he hates Yuki is because deep down he respects an admires his strength, and the only way to gain respect from him and everyone else is to beat Yuki and win his place in the zodiac. That's how most relate to him, just trying to fit into the mold society or others set out for us when in truth we will never fit the mold of life never be perfect because we are each our own being. People need to respect that and stop wasting time and energy to make a mold we'll never fit. - Adelia Mau

2 Yuki

He's the example of a character who tries to be perfect at everything, have the ideal "everything", and whose veneer and polish makes him seem unapproachable.
But he's still human, he still has insecurities, and he's afraid that if he ever drops his act, everyone will see him for the fraud he thinks he is.

I know It's not exactly humble, but I have been that person, who seemingly has everything "right" and who's been called both "aloof", and "genius" when I feel incredibly socially awkward, and I'm always worried that I should know everything, or whether I should even try actually "doing" stuff in case I fail. And if I tell people about these problems, they say "oh now you're just complaining". I know they're not as big as other's issues, but they still keep me up at night, and I'd still like to talk about them sometimes, and find out how to fix them.

Let's just say that Yuki is a character type who is human, and shows that even bright blobs of "perfection" have ...more

I roll my eyes at his character...

He is smart, funny, strong, kind, rich, handsome, and every single person loves him or wants to be with him... But yet he STILL self-pities, because apparently he doesn't like people falling in love with him! His life is perfect but YET all he does is whine and complain throughout the entire series... Ugh.

Yuki may be cute and nice to everyone but there's something I REALLY don't like about him. When he beats up Kyo. Anyway, he is a rather supporting character who cares about (some) people like Tohru and Machi, and I'm REALLY glad that he and Kyo are on good terms with each other in the end of the manga.

He is so cute and always beats up kyo he's perfect and well I can't even put it into words he just has a beautiful face and a perfect smile ADORABLE

3 Tohru

Tohru is one of my favourite characters. She may seem like an idiot or stupid at times, but I love her personality. She's so cute. She is my favourite character the same way that Kyo is her favourite person. She is so pretty and she didn't reject Kyo's true form. She is what I call a "friend" a friend who would stay by Kyo's side. She makes me feel happy no matter what the situation is.

Tohru Honda is a great character we should all relate to. Yes, she has gotten through a lot, we all know that, but she stays optimistic as possible and NEVER gives up! And no matter what, she cares about people, especially the Sohma family.

She is so cute as in adorable, shy and sensitive. Like my ideal friend!

Tohru is unlike any other character. She's gone through so much, yet she still wears a smile on her face. She is a huge inspiration to me.

4 Shigure

Shigure is basically the whole reason why I kept laughing while watching the anime. I LOVE how he keeps trying to avoid his editor! He's also cute as a dog.

High School Girls! High School Girls! 1, 2,3! High School Girls!

Shigure is so damn funny and that's why I love him

Shigure is amazing! How is he fourth! He should be first he is so funny!

5 Hanajima

Most beautiful woman ever in this anime + strong personality.

She is dark and awesome and knows Tohru Honda san better then others.

...She can actually relate to me...

6 Akito

I love Akito's aesthetic- he's so frail and isolated yet so powerful and abusive, darkness and pain is synonymous with him and he is the source of most of the character's suffering. I also like the fact that he turns out to be female as well as his complicated relationship with Shigure. He is certainly not blameless for being abusive, but I almost admire how he takes pride in the suffering of the curse, as if he feels it is what binds the Sohma family together.

I love his darkness.. I will use my light heart to make him burn! Haha... Akito my love... Haha

I don't like akito, I don't care that she probably had the most sadbackstory, she has no right to treat everyone so poorly. I mean look at all the other characters that had a sad backstory they don't go around treating every badly all the time.

I love Akito becuase she has such depth to her character. Many hate her becuase of what she does, but it's not her fault, but the fault of her mother and father. I just love characters who have terrible emtional challenges, becuase they just make the character super interesting to learn about. I blame Akito for nothing and I absolutely love her.

7 Momiji

His has the most beautiful heart. Even stay near to his mother will make his fill sad, he never give up.

Momiji is SO cute! He does the funniest things and always knows how to make someone feel better

The fact that he hides so much pain in his heart and acts so optimistic and cheerful is very awesome

He's so adorable and funny, but he also has suffer through great pain which is amazing!

8 Hatsuharu

Hatsuharu is so kind! He's always being kind. Like when Momiji was being bullied by the President for wearing girls clothes he stood up for him. Also when Rin is being hurt by Akito. He's always there. Even if he has a split personality he's still a smexy cow; you can't deny. My favourite scene in is in the Anime where he snaps and proves to the President that his black and white hair is real. The way he showed him it was real was so funny. I JUST LOVE HIM SO MUCH.

He is a lot like me, with a normal side and a black side. All the quizes I took of what character I was is always hatsuharu. He is so awesome and sometimes, he can be so calm its creepy. And I think its cute how he cares for his friends so much, like when momiji was being bullied by the president, and when yuki was being tortured by ayame, and how he cares so so much for run, even if it means going against akito.

My favorite character, a cow. He's really smexi, he has a cuteness with his split personality. Everyone loves the scene where he fights off the school president with his dark smexi side.


9 Hatori

Amazing character with a tragically poetic past. Very smart, talented, handsome fellow with a very cute zodiac form...even if he did get the short end of the stick with that so-called "dragon" 9_9

Who doesn't love a man with an awesome fringe and a tragic past?

The guy had a tragic past and had to carry the burden of erasing the memory of the person he loved most. Despite that he still looks out for the others like Tohru.

Hatori, a real hell of a dragon

10 Arisa

Arisa' past as a Yankee makes me cry... Oh she's pretty nice.

Ou is hilarious and such a strong character... She takes such good care of Tohru and her relationship W. Kyo is fab.

The Contenders

11 Ayame

I like how he tries his best to improve his past to become a better person I kind of see myself in him so I really like his story and I also love how much of devotion he gives for something he likes, though he wasn't able to become a responsible brother he was a responsible student council, responsible human most humans who had bad past with someone would just let it go but he ad the courage to make things normal between his brother

I was going to vote for Shigure but then I remembered that Ayame actually makes me laugh the most. Especially his high school stories like the time he kept those students from getting expelled for going to the red light district and how he convinced that teacher to let him keep his long hair. His voice, gay jokes and ridiculousness is just too funny

Ayame is so stupid but so damn funny plus he is good looking and I love his long white hair.

He is the best of all the characters! He is sexy and has great hair and also he is so, so, so, so, so funny.

12 Kagura

Kagura SUCKS because she ALWAYS beat up Kyo for NO REASON!
How would YOU feel if a person who you DON'T like always beat you up for no reason. Would you like it?
Also, I don't find Kagura "funny" because she has no talents and all she does is MESS things up and beat Kyo until he cries to death.
Just think about it! Would you like it if a stalker like her do that to you?
If you thumbs down my comment then that means you are into people who are crazy, dumb, useless, and likes to beat you up.
Oh... I'm sure you are into people who beat you to death.
In the REAL world, Kyo would have been dead from Kagura.
Poor Kyo-kun.

Kagura might be a bit "unloveable" sometimes but she can still be an understanding person who can understand Kyo properly at times like the 26th episode in the anime. And also in the manga, she listens to what Kyo has to say in the end and gives up on him. She has known Kyo since childhood. She also accepted Kyo for what he is so I'm glad he didn't have to bear rejection from her. But, I admit I don't think Kagura is funny.

But the ability to love someone and be persistent about them is not something that everyone can do. So you have got to appreciate that part of her.

Poor Kyo-kun... he has to get beat up by one of the funniest characters in the anime... Just because she LOVES him...

13 Kyo Sohma

So awesome that he's on here twice.


14 Machi

Machi is cute but I really don't understand her relationship with Yuki well, but they are so cute!

15 Kisa

Kisa is actually pretty. Is she really as "odd" as her cold classmates think she is? They don't understand her. In my opinion Kisa is an innocent pure hearted little girl. Hiro and Kisa make a great couple.

Kisa is the second rice ball...

Kisa is innocent and cute. Why is she bullied? She deserves happiness. Kisa is also one of the best Frutis Basket characters.

16 Ritsu

That guy needs to CHILL!

Who is she?

He's crazy...

17 Kazuma Sohma

2nd favorite character after Kyo. His was the greatest parents ever.

He is so nice and caring and adopted Kyo...I'm grateful that he looked after Kyo...

Sweetest man ever for looking after Kyo.

18 Rin

Rin is actually a lot like me, I don't open up to a lot of people And I'm not telling you why, but she wants to be nicer and have friends and I'm trying too, but in the end she was able to open up and find friends, and I hope I turn out to be like her but I'm not very interested in boys. Took me about 12 minutes to right this. Sigh.

Rin was cold and sort of heartless at first to Tohru but she became good friends with Tohru later in the manga, and she fought Kagura when she slapped Tohru. Rin is a caring person and she is cute when Akito cut her hair in the end.

She is really pretty even though I don't know much about her I still really like her.

19 Hiro Sohma

Love how his stay by his mother and little sister until the curse break.

Spoiled brat. I hate him

20 Manabe Kakeru

Flying-Pot san is one of the most likeable characters in fruits basket. His relationship with Yuki is hilarious, and he's just hysterical. I find it sad that not as many people have read the manga and don't know about the incredible characters like the student council and rin etc.

He's so funny! He might tie for second with Kagura! Kyo's the best, CLEARLY!

How is he last! He is so cute and funny and EVERYBODY likes him! Even Yuki!

Kakeru is the best your argument is invalid.

21 Megumi Hanajima

He might even be creepier than Saki! Is that even possible?!?

Love how he supports his sister

He is way creeper than Hanajima!

22 Katsuya Honda
23 Kureno Sohma

His loyalty is of the highest degree. I found it a bit bittersweet that he could no longer fly like he once did. There was also that cute moment when he hugged Tohru to show her that he could no longer transform.

24 Kyoko Honda
25 Kakeru Manabe
