Fruits Basket is about a down on her luck girl but gets mixed up with a mysterious family that just happens to turn into Chinese zodiac animals when touched by the opposite sex.
The girl uniform is actually quite cute considering it's just a blue sailor uniform. But what makes it stand out is that the tie is white instead of red giving it a blue and white only theme. Their is a really nice white lining to the jacket as well. This white lining also transfers onto the boy uniforms making them a little more interesting since they have an all black style. They have really snazzy white ties as well so that also helps them stand out among a sea of black uniforms.
Overall: Didn't overly like the show so I really wouldn't want to dress like it's characters. The uniforms are really cute though.
After viewing my 2000th anime being Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Spiral Labyrinth, (a few weeks ago) I happened to come across My anime firsts post over on Mainichi Anime Yume. Very inspired I took the list from there and added some of my own questions. I started thinking right away about what my first were simply because of that post and my chiropractor whom that very night asked me what I did for a living. Not having a job in general I just said "I blog" which of course let to the question "Oh? What about?". I Had to tell him about anime and of course he had no clue what I was really talking about but he then asked "What got you into watching anime?". This question got me thinking all over again about my anime journey in life because I couldn't really come up with anything else other than I had just grown up with it. Remembering these anime is half the fun of these following questions!
Anywho, with that in mind I give you all my anime first that I can remember!
First Anime Watched (English)
This is a toss up since when I was a little kid Fables of the Green Forest & Maya the Bee were shown on TV. So without fully knowing that I was watching anime I had started. The one I was fully aware that it was an anime would have to be Dragon Ball and then of course Sailor Moon.
First Non-Kids Anime
Dominion Tank Police on late night TV. It blew my mind on how awesome it was.
First Anime song Heard (TV size in Japanese)
I would say that Gundam Wing is the winner here.
First Anime song Heard (full version) and First Anime (Japanese with subs)
I first watched Escaflowne on TV so I heard it's "special" English OP only at first. Then my best friend told me that I absolutely had to re-watch the series in Japanese. I wasn't so sure at first why but then he showed me the full version of the actual OP for it and I was sold.
First Anime Obsession
Sailor Moon I'd have to say. I was so tsundere for it at first too which makes it all the more hilarious to me. When Macross Plus came out the obsession moved onto that. Followed quickly by Gundam Wing.
First Anime Franchise-based Movie
Patlabor: The Movie and it ended up hooking me on awesome mecha series ever since.
First Anime Original Movie
Ninja Scroll. <3 Never gets old.
First Character Obsession (Male/Female)
Blue Saphir AKA Sapphire from Sailor Moon for my male obsession hands down. He was part of the Black Moon Clan and I can safely say that I was VERY (link contains spoilers) obsessed with his tragic character. For my female obsession it's honestly harder to remember. I suppose it would be Sailor Mercury simply because of what I stated in her character post. I think being obsessed with Myung and her alter ego Sharron was a much better fit for me when Macross Plus came along. Even the next anime obsession Gundam Wing's Relena was a better choice.
First Anime That Made Me Cry
Grave of the Fireflies hands down. It is one of only 6 titles that have ever made tears flow from my eyes. Anime for some reason has a really hard time making me cry.
First Product Bought (non-video)
I bought Sailor Moon posters from the dollar store. I still have them and one day when I can put them up on the wall again I shall and it'll be awesome!
Figures I suppose. All these little Hetalia ones that my boyfriend bought for me for my birthday in 2010.
First Video Collection (VHS/DVD)
VHS is really fuzzy for me since I don't have any of them anymore and they ended up getting stolen at some point during my many moves. I'm pretty sure Dirty Pair was my first VHS find though. DVD wise like I said here it's either a toss up between Macross Plus or Kite. I just for the life of me can't remember the order.
First Manga Read
Battle Angel Alita because I was dating a guy that was very much into anime and helped me get even more into anime at the time. He had every original volume and I read it every time I went over to visit him haha.
First Manga Bought
Chobits but because she had the same name as ME. My nickname when I was an elementary student was chii cause I had a lot of energy like chi! I just rolled with it ever since.
Anime North in 2009. I'm very much a convention noob.
Mine would have to be La Blue Girl... I'm sure a lot of other people share this as their first as well.
First Hentai Manga
Bondage Fairies! Might be better not to ask how this came about 😛
This would probably be Ranma 1/2. It was the first anime I watched with my best friend whom had internet at the time and could get anime for us to watch that wasn't on TV.
First AMV Watched
It's actually really hard to remember this but I think it would have to be this one. I've never had the desire to make one but if I did it would so be for Legend of the Galactic Heroes to Muse's Knights Of Cydonia.
First Fan Fic Written
It was a Macross Plus one I'll admit but I'll NEVER let anyone see it no matter how much you ask 😛 There's even a Gundam Wing one hanging around somewhere too 😛
First Anime Web Site Made
Hilariously enough I only started my blog at the end of 2009 and it is the only anime thing I have ever done online that wasn't part of something already there.
First Anime Blog Visited
Digitalboy's many blogs I have followed since he appeared before me in 2007. He's one of the only people's opinions on anime that I really give a damn about.
First Anime Site Visited
When I was a kid my mom was dead set against having internet in the house (I don't know...) so I didn't really get into the whole internet thing a lot. Quite hilarious that I didn't really start using the internet till 2000 XD Anyway, in 2002 I discovered a little interesting site called Anime-Planet 😛 I didn't join at first cause I didn't understand that you had to join but I lurked around the main site and on the forums for many years. It wasn't till 2005 that I joined and have never looked back. 2005 I would also consider the time where I reintroduced myself to anime after a few years of not watching a lot.
First Anime Dropped
Adventures of Mini-Goddess. I started it with my best friend and thought it sucked a lot. Tried picking it up again later on my own and it still sucked. Tried watching it a few years ago with my boyfriend because we watched all of AMG and he wanted to try it out. Dropped yet again. It was meant to never be watched by me I believe.
First Anime Hated
Green Green wins this title. I disliked it SO much that I couldn't get past episode 3 of the series. Which is ok by me because I know a lot of people that think the same way I do about it.
First Anime Drawing
I only ever drew Sailor Moon pictures because back then I actually loved to draw. My first picture was Luna the cat eating a donut. The second one hilariously is Sailor Mars's Grandpa sticking his tounge out in a YUM kind of way. It seems that strangeness of me still hasn't worn off.
I dunno if I would count this because I didn't try very hard but last year at Anime Boston I cosplayed (we were on the top floor and it was really hot up there) Yamamoto-sensei and my boyfriend kindly dressed as Tsuchida. They weren't very good but whatever. I really would like to cosplay with a proper costume and all someday but money is a bitch.
Random other fun firsts I remember:
First Long-Running Shonen Series
Of course this would be Dragon Ball. Long before I even knew what a shounen series was. If I went by actually knowing I'd have to say Bleach.
First Mecha Series
Macross Plus. How I love you so.
First Gundam Series
First Magical Girl/Shoujo Series
First Harem Series
Love Hina. Surprise surprise here lol
First Reverse Harem
Fruits Basket... It was a terrible start into this sub-genre for me.
First Sports Series
Azusa Will Help! I honestly haven't watched a lot of sports anime in general.
First Food Related Series
Yakitate!! Japan. Been hooked on any anime ever since that has anything to do with cooking! Yes that even means the shoujo Yumeiro Pâtissière!
First Series that Messed With My Mind
Lain hands down and then I watched Evangelion now soon after it.
So there you have it! Got anymore questions for me? Leave a comment and ask!
Check out this other post that has a whole list of other people's anime firsts as well. ^__^
From the anime Fruits Basket, Kyo Sohma is generally a very angry young man. Kyo is cursed by the cat, because in the Chinese zodiac the Rat (Yuki) tricked him into missing an important induction meal. He is known to be very competitive as a defence mechanism and really hates Yuki because he is the reincarnation of the Rat. They end up battling each other a lot for Tohru Honda's affection.
Why I like him: Cat boy?
Why I hate him: I don't know... He just was a boring character to me... Much like the rest of the "oh woe is me" cast...
Overall: I hear the manga is better than the anime but I have no desire to read it. I will admit it had an interesting premises with the Chinese zodiac mythology to it.
