This one of a kind manga's is hitting the shelves in every bookstore. It can also be found online. This manga has a little romance and a lot of laughter and originality. It's about a girl, Tohru-Honda who had lived with her mom until she died in a mudslide. Some japanese family finds her: Sohma family. There's Yuki-sohma, Kyo-Sohma, Shigure-Sohma, Hatori-Sohma, Ayame-Sohma, Momiji-Sohma and so many more characters. They go on many adventures and Tohru-Honda finally learns the family secret. Then she slowly meets more family members and who they really are. This "backwards" book is so popular. It creates abrstract mood. Tohru-Honda doesn't always get what's happening and there's always a constant feud between Kyo and Yuki-kun. Tohru-Honda never knows who to choose or who to like. It's a complicated life for her, with the whole moving situation, her job(working for the Sohma's :cleaning and cooking, to pay off rent) and homework. Of course!
