Recently orphaned high school student Tohru Honda is living in the woods while her grandfather's house is being renovated when she is discovered by Yuki Sohma, a popular but distant boy in her class, who lives nearby. When a landslide buries her tent, Yuki and his older cousin Shigure Sohma, with whom he lives, ask her to stay with them in return for housekeeping instead of rent. As she settles into her room, cousin Kyo Sohma bursts in, spoiling for a fight with his rival, Yuki. In the confusion, Tohru accidentally catches hold of Kyo, Yuki, and Shigure, and the three turn into a cat, rat, and dog, respectively. They explain the curse of the Chinese zodiac, and warn her that the head of the family, Akito Sohma, would have her memories hypnotically erased if she reveals the secret. Tohru promises to keep it, but asks Yuki to remain her friend if she is made to forget him. Under Akito's orders, Kyo also moves in, with some initial awkwardness, and he transfers into Tohru and Yuki's class. When she learns where Kyo is living, Kagura Sohma, a cousin infatuated with him, visits. After some weeks, Tohru's grandfather's house is complete and she moves back in with him, but she misses the Sohmas and, as a dependent orphan, is made to feel awkward by her aunt and uncle, so when Yuki and Kyo come to fetch her "home," she willingly returns with them.
