Tohru and Kyo's Romance in Fruits Basket

The touching romance between Kyo and Tohru begins when the young high-schooler moves into the home of Yuki and Shigure Sohma after losing her mother. Shortly afterward, Kyo also moves in, and the pair gradually begin to grow closer, despite Kyo's single-minded determination to defeat Yuki and claim his rightful place as a true zodiac member. While rejection and sorrow color Kyo's past, Tohru's unconditional acceptance of him softens his heart and causes him to fall in love with her. At the end of the series, the two get married and have a son named Hajime.
