Character Of The Month: Tohru Honda

Tohru Honda

A little bit of backstory.... :  Tohru is the main protagonist from the anime Fruits Basket, a funny comedy about everyday life.  But once looking closer, it is not just a normal story.  Tohru is the pleasant, not too troubling, sweet girl who has lost her mother in a car accident. She finds herself sleeping in a tent because she does not want to be a bother to any of her friends or family with her issues.  One day, while on her way to school, she meets two members of the household called Sohma. 
The first she meets is a man named Shigure, when she saw his own little version of the Chinese zodiac.  She begins to talk to him when the second Sohma appears. And that one just so happens to be the prince of her school, named Yuki!  She is surprised upon finding out where he lives.  Since they are both running a bit late, Yuki asks if Tohru would walk to school with him.  She stutters in reply but goes with him to school.

After many events unfold, she finds out about the "Sohma curse"; the curse is that whenever any members of the Sohma family hug someone of the opposite gender, they transform into an animal from the Chinese zodiac.  As more and more secrets are uncovered, you, as well as Tohru discover there is more to the Sohma's than you'd originally thought.

Name: Tohru Honda
Age: 16-18
Hair color: Brown (in manga) Blue (in anime)
Height: 5'2"
Zodiac Year: Dog

Personality: She is a ditzy, spacey, kind, and forgiving girl, who will always be there for you and tries as hard as she can to not cause trouble for those around her.  She shows great loyalty and kindness to the Sohma's for taking her in and helps to break the curse out of her own free will.

Okay, that is all! (I haven't posted a lot for a while....geez. But I will do more!)

Until next time!
