Tohru Honda is one of the main characters in Fruits Basket, making her first appearance in chapter 1 of volume 1 of the manga and episode 1 of the anime. As such she is the first character we are introduced to. It is learned that Tohru is a high school student who had been recently orphaned as a result of her mother being killed in a car crash. Since then she had been living with her paternal grandfather. Some time later renovations needed to be done, and, because of her unwillingness to be a burden on her friends, she decided she would live in a tent, figuring it to be a good experience as she would be living on her own one day anyway. Tohru has a cheerful nature and an optimistic outlook on life and no matter how much she may be suffering on the inside she always finds a way to keep a smile on her face.
