The story involves an orphan girl, Honda Tohru, and her encounters with the Sohma. I've read this story a couple of times, and have never get bored of it each time. Although at times, Honda Tohru seemed weak, but she appears as cute more often to me. Unexpectedly, I also learnt several 'life lessons' from this manga, as sometimes they give a pretty good saying or advice. The manga was absolutely excellent, and the ending was a little unpredictable (for me).
