草摩 由希 (Sohma Yuki), Yuki Sohma




16 (in the anime)

    16-18 (in the manga)



Yuki Sohma is one of the main characters in the anime/manga, Fruits Basket. He is one of the possessed members of the Sohma Family. He turns into a rat whenever he is hugged by a member of the opposite sex or when he is under a great deal of stress. Yuki is known as a "Prince" in his school because of his good looks and apparently kind attitude, and he has a fan club. He is usually calm, collective, rational, and more silent compared to others. However, he is open and willing to change, be more himself, and genuinely enjoy life.


Yuki's older brother Ayame rejected him when he was very young, and he never felt very close to him. When he was young, Akito abused him and kept him in a locked room. He convinced him that nobody liked him and that he didn't have any skills. In the manga, he ran away and helped a young version of Tohru get home, which is when he finally realized that Akito had been lying to him and he did, in fact, have many skills.


Yuki knows how to treat the ladies, and is very hyper. But when he and Kyo are arguing, he gets pretty calm. He dislikes his older brother Ayame, but he still tries to bond with him. He enjoys gardening, and when you take something from his garden without asking, it won't be pretty. Either way, he still has moments when he feels bad about himself. He is afraid to get close to anyone, because he thinks they will not like the real Yuki. He admires Kyo, because once he knows people, he can show them the real him.

The CatEdit

Yuki and Kyo Sohma having been fighting and arguing ever since they were little kids, as Yuki is the rat and Kyo is the cat. Yuki has a natrual abilitly for martial arts and always wins the battles without a sweat, athough Kyo trains very hard. But ever since Tohru Honda came to live with them, they have been arguing much less than usual.


Tohru HondaEdit

Yuki didn't know Tohru very well before he found her living in a tent. He saw her as just another classmate. But, after she moves into his house, he starts to get to know her better but, views her as only a mother figure. Tohru in fact falls in love deeply with Kyo Sohma!! ( See Kyo Sohma Below for more details on their story) Despite Kyo's hot-headed nature Tohru see's the good in Kyo that no-one else but Yuki see's. Kyo feels the same way and they end up together forever! :)

Kyo SohmaEdit

Kyo Sohma is Yuki's cousin, as well as his enemy. Kyo is obsessed with beating Yuki because if he defeats him in a battle before he graduates, he does not have to go to the special house that was made for the Sohma's with the Curse of The Cat. In the MANGA Kyo falls completely head over heels in love with tohru, as she does the same. In the end they end up together, they get married and have a daughter who later has a little girl. Kyo and Tohru always remain together!!!In the anime, it shows that tohru sees the good side of him but does not completely fall in love with him. It seemed that Yuki liked Tohru more than Kyo did.

Motoko MinigawaEdit

Motoko Minigawa is the head of the Yuki Sohma fan club and is madly in love with Yuki. That is the reason that she is trying to get rid of Tohru. She doesn't realize that pulling Tohru away won't make Yuki grateful, but very sad. She thinks Tohru is making it so Yuki won't fall in love with her. 

Hatsuharu "Haru" SohmaEdit

When Hatsuharu and Yuki were both kids, Hatsuharu hated Yuki. He thought it was all Yuki's fault that people called him dumb, as the rat rode the ox in the old zodiac story. But when he finally meets Yuki and yells at him, Yuki says, "They say you're dumb, but are you really?" Hatsuharu realizes that no matter what other people say, he is not dumb. He is himself. He later describes Yuki as his first love. Haru asked Shigure to let Yuki live in his house.

Haru had to call Shigure "sensei". Haru tells Yuki that he should call Tohru "Tohru -chan".

Shigure SohmaEdit

Shigure Sohma is Yuki's cousin. They get along well, although Yuki doesn't enjoy Shiguri's meals. Also, as it says in the anime, Shigure is Yuki's older, less violent, cousin.

Ayame SohmaEdit

Ayame is Yuki's older brother.When Yuki was a child, Ayame completely rejected him, pushing him away whenever he asksed for help. When he is an adult, Ayame regrets doing this, and is trying to close the gap that is between him and Yuki.
