Aside from waiting for the Sohma curse to be lifted, fans have always debated who Tohru should end up with. The fandom is divided into Team Yuki and Team Kyo. Yuki is the well-loved prince while Kyo is the hot-headed but kind cat. 

Fruits Basket fans, admit it, there was at least one time or scene in the series that we wanted Tohru to be with Yuki. It’s not that we didn’t approve of Kyo, but somehow and someway, we all believe that Tohru should be with Yuki. We have 5 reasons to prove that. 


1. Yuki is upfront with his feelings

Unlike Kyo, Yuki showed his feelings for Tohru. He never made her feel that he didn’t like her. In fact, all of his actions were obvious, and there were a bunch of times when he could end up confessing to her. 


2. Yuki is loyal

Yuki is naturally kind and helpful towards Tohru. He is also honest and straightforward, so she won’t have issues communicating with him.

Yuki’s treatment is the same from the moment they saw Tohru in the tent until they lived together. He showed her he was interested in her, and that he was willing to open up to her. There were also a lot of scenes wherein it showed how Tohru helped Yuki to become a better person. In return, he did everything he can to protect her.
