One of my favorite characters is Momiji Sohma from the very popular manga and anime series Fruits Basket. Momiji is a very hyper and positive character with lots of spirit. In the story, he can turn into a rabbit due to a curse passed down in his family that turns you into a particular animal of the Chinese Zodiac. He enjoys being around people, and Momiji comes off as being extremely young, but he’s actually high school aged.
Momiji always tries his hardest to cheer people up and be kind, but is always getting scolded for something. Overall he’s just a very “cute” character and the protagonist of the story, Tohru Honda, always treats him with care and didn’t realize that he’s only one year younger than her due to his young appearance. It is later revealed that he has a more tragic back-story and puts on a happy front most of the time. Because he is cursed with being part of the zodiac, his mother rejects him and goes insane. In order for his mother to go back to the way she used to be, another member of the family erases her memories of Momiji.
Momiji is a great character and I really like his personality. He’s very amusing to watch as well. I feel like every character in this series is unfortunate in what happens to them and I personally think Momiji has one of the more tragic stories.
